I am VERY pleased to report that the following situation is in the process of being rectified. As you'll see in the comments below, author Jillian Eaton is correcting the photo credit for the cover of her book. I thought about taking this whole post down, but decided to leave it as a reminder to ALL AUTHORS that the people who create our covers are artists, too, and deserve full credit for their contributions. I'm also leaving it as an example of how gracious someone can be in admitting a mistake. We all make them; the first step to fixing them is to admit it.
Thank you, Jillian.
This breaks my heart.
Now look at this:
That pretty much gives you the information as to where this is from. I don't think I need to add the link.
And if you "look inside" that Kindle edition, you'll find this:
"Cover art photography courtesy of Helena Beumer. All rights reserved."
Well, at least it didn't say (c) Helena Beumer. . . . .
Photography is covered by copyright protections, too. I know most writers don't want their words stolen, but shouldn't they be a little more respectful of their fellow artists?
