You have exclusive rights to your cover. No one else will have a cover like yours, and your cover will never be sold twice. However, covers are made using non-exclusive images licensed from websites like Thinkstock.com, which anyone has access to. While it’s unlikely another artist will combine the images, fonts, and colors to design an identical cover, I can’t guarantee against the use of the image(s) elsewhere.
Can I return a cover if I change my mind or if my book doesn’t get published?
Payment is not received until the proof is approved. At that point, the cover is yours and no refunds will be given.
Can I change the cover or use the art differently after purchased?
Your exclusive right is for the book cover as-is. You are not allowed to make modifications or changes of any kind to the book cover. “Changes” include, but are not limited to, changing the author name, the title, adjusting or re-sizing imagery, cutting and/or pasting images or text, stretching, color modifications.
However, I also understand that these images are helpful for promoting the book through various websites, blog tours, etc. Use of the images exclusively for promoting the book or author for which/whom the cover was purchased directly from me is acceptable.
Who retains what rights?
Abigail Owen retains full copyright ownership of the cover design/image(s) after your purchase.
For any purchases by Abigail Owen of a special, third party image license for production of your book cover, you agree to abide by the terms and conditions of any license agreement for that image and to post required Copyright Notice (if any), as provided by Abigail Owen in your published work.
Do you create/sell custom book covers?
In order to concentrate fully on my writing, I do not plan to take on customer covers on a regular basis. However, if you are interested, please contact me at abigail[dot]owen[dot]books[at]gmail[dot]com to discuss further.
