In response to the Spiderwork cover to-do, Alex Flinn has just posted this at her Live Journal blog:
Aug. 18th, 2011 06:22 pm Bewitching Cover Art to be changed
Thanks to some alert readers who alerted me to the similarity between the proposed cover for Bewitching and an e-book called Spiderwork by L.K. Rigel. As I indicated in my original post, the Bewitching cover is a work-in-progress. In light of the perceived similarities, my publisher has assured me they are creating a brand new cover for Bewitching.
Similarities do happen. Recently, two children’s novels were published with virtually identical covers. Two friends of mine had novels in the same season with stock photos which were, if not identical, at least of the same model in the same photo shoot. Of course, everyone prefers to avoid these similarities if at all possible.
Again, I would like to thank those alert readers and, indeed, Ms. Rigel herself for her classiness. I’m sure there will be an awesome cover for Bewitching, and you will see it soon. Watch this space and my Facebook.
I’m very excited about Bewitching, It’s a companion to Beastly, and about Kendra, my favorite character. I hope you’ll enjoy it!
