AI with line crossed through it and Created by Human written on circle around it
Dannika Dark has been a published author since 2011, penning many of her earliest stories in 2010. Dannika does not use ghostwriters, nor are any of her stories conceived, generated, or collaborated with A.I. (artificial intelligence). She writes them all herself, spending hours, weeks, and months producing characters and stories that inspire and transport readers. Dannika also designs her covers and art from licensed images either through stock sites or directly with photographers. She does her best to ensure each of these photographs or vectors purchased were not generated by AI. Through her audio publisher, Dannika uses talented voice actors to narrator her audiobooks.
Dannika believes in protecting the intellectual rights and copyrights of all creatives. Additionally, she believes using copyrighted art to train artificial intelligence without consent is unethical and theft. It does not provide compensation to those artists. Dannika strongly supports human artists in various professions who do not utilize AI. If we do not stand up for others, who will stand up for us?
Art is what makes us human. Support human creatives who spent hours producing unforgettable stories, narrations, photography, and paintings. It is our passion and our livelihood.


Support artists by making sure they get paid for their work. Authors rely on sales in order to keep producing the books you love. For self-published authors, every dollar counts, and we appreciate fans who support our stories by purchasing their digital copies at approved retailers. Even with library borrows, the author receives compensation. Be sure it is through your local library or Overdrive/Hoopla/Libby, not by some online site that might use "library" in their name.

Please do not download pirated books. Some of those sites make money in ads or even donations and are benefiting the thief, not the author. Many sites put malware and viruses onto your computer.
Support artists. Stand up against online piracy.
