Sometimes big publishers are up to no good...

...and both pictures down below prove my point.

The one on the left is the original work of a wonderful cover designer named Nathalia Suellen, who did the SPIDERWICK cover for indie author L.K.Rigel. The one on the right is the shady version of Harper Collin's BEWITCHING by Alex Flinn. Incredible, isn't it? It's just outrageous! The worst part is HP wrote to LK asking to use the cover, she said no and they still did it anyway!
But there is always a yin yang to everything and I'm sure some light will come out of this. Both author and designer will benefit from the publicity :)

Harper Collins though, shame on you!
