Artificial Intelligence (AI) / Large Learning Model (LLM) Statement

Artwork

Cupid’s Arrow Publishing DOES NOT utilize AI-generated stock images or Generative-AI programs that train off content where the original creators were not credited nor compensated. This includes but is not limited to: Midjourney, Stable Diffusion, Dall-E, ChatGPT, etc. Due to the high number of AI-generated images appearing on stock image websites, should a stock photo be used that we or the author later suspects to be generated using generative AI, we will as quickly as is reasonable alter the design to replace the image.

Submissions

Upon submission of their work, authors are required to certify that they did not use AI tools in creating text content and/or images in the final creation of their work.
