I've seen a potential cover art for this book which is a total rip-off of Nathalia Suellen's lovely cover for LK Rigel's novel, Spiderwork. Not surprised you fail to show an image here. Hope the author and publisher change what is proposed before publication.

I saw that. Absolutely shameful. Basically, Harper Collins feels like if you won't sell them your art to use as a cover, they'll just take it.

Wow. And I bet the author, Alix Flynn, would be devastated to know that her publisher is stealing art and ruining her reputation too. What a colossal act of incompetence and unethical (or criminal) behaviour.

I'm sure Alix Flynn knows by now. The cover has been removed from a lot of sites. HC is owned by Rupert Murdoch. Need I say more?

Glad to see shameless copying isn't ignored in this case. Hopefully it was the author who called HC, and Murdoch's goons out.

The story was also posted on boingboing.net, which gets 350k visitors a day and regularly calls out people who rip off artistic work. :D
