I plan to be a diva someday . . . - Bewitching Cover Art to be changed
You are the classy one. It would be so easy for a big corporation like Harper Collins to figure an unknown like me and a foreign artist like Nathalia Suellen can be ignored and just go on with the beautiful cover.
I am positive you had something to do with deciding to go with a different cover, and I think you're lovely for it.
Thank you so much, and best of luck (though you don't need it) with the Kendra Chronicles.
Thank you, and good luck with your books!
First of all, in this case similarities can't happen. I don't know what Harper Collins said to you but it's my right to refuse a proposal.
Sasha Illingworth contacted me this year to licence "City of Angels" to Bewitched cover. I refused because it was already sold to LK RIGEL. Looks like she didn't accept my refusal and copied me. I'm an artist not a writter, there's no "virtually identical covers", it's not about coincidence or stock usage. They used the same elements, concept, colors. It's not "similar, it's copy and it's dishonest.
A parody of my artwork was being used to sold your book everywhere. work-in-process or not, it's a commercial purpose and my art was involved. I didn't had any profit with it. It's not even an inspiration, (no credit, no payment, no attribution, no permission). I mean, doesn't really matter what cover Bewitched is going to have. And now, looks like Harper Collins, cowardly removed the cover like if anything had happened. You know, It's a commercial purpose, is it a revenge? I'm really surprise to see you trying to defend the company.
By the way, the "work-in-process" was removed from amazon,goodreads and Harper Collins website. Strange the fact that they wasted time to copy my work and now you say its a process? Process of copying you mean?
The company doesn't know what is the meaning of "NO" and they paied another artist to copy my artwork. I expected more from an art director, more respect, more originality. "City of Angels" is not available to copy, let them know.
The foreign artist.
