In the world of Stock Art and Photography it is unfortunately a reality of life that you seldom see how your art is used or where. In one of these rare cases I was approached sometime back by an author who was checking the legality of the license she was sold for an up and coming book. All was well on this occasion but it is a sad reflection that many authors big and small still remain ignorant of the correct license for artwork use especially when it comes to E book editions where often small scale free images are often abused and enlarged to accommodate larger cover sizes. The result of this is often a very poor representation of my work at best and downright heartbreaking at worse. Typography is another area which is often overlooked and poorly conceived and something I have no control over over unless commissioned. It goes without saying that if any author is going to spend quality time and effort in the writing they should at the very least give as much attention to their chosen cover and not treat it like some after thought. This cover is the window to your potential audience and get it wrong and your finished before you've begun. Anyway more on the downfalls of bad cover design another day.
The kind lady Carol Fix who got in touch last year surprised me when one morning last week I kindly received in the post a copy of her new book displaying the very artwork she had punched for her volume of Science Fiction short stories.
As a thank you for her kind gesture I would also like to return the courtesy and direct you towards her very fine book and web site where you will be able to keep up to date of her ongoing enterprises.
