It constantly amazes me how territorial writers and artists can be over others using similar settings or characters to theirs. Frankly, its been my experience, that any one group of writers or artists can be given the exact same setting and individually they will produce significantly different products!

This is not copyright infringement folks, its creative license! This happens because no two writers or artists have the same creative vision. As an example, two of my favorite witch series have several things in common (see flow chart below). However, both of these authors have taken the basic premise and created two vastly different original series and taken their characters and plots in completely different directions.

To prove my premise, I'm going to challenge you to identify each of the series and the authors. The first 20 people who identify them both correctly, will get a free copy of my newest book (Warriors of St. Antoni). To enter, fill out the form below and return it with your answers. REMEMBER YOU MUST CORRECTLY IDENTIFY BOTH SERIES & AUTHOR! CONTEST ENDS October 1, 2017. WINNERS WILL BE ANNOUNCED HERE AND ON FACEBOOK!
