Ok, since I started this thread, I might as well add my humble entry.

My father is actually who published a book of stories lately, but he happened to have an artist as a son and to make use for some of the skills he payed for dearly, he decided to use some of my photographs.
He insisted to have his glorious portrait on the front cover, a picture of the sea at the back cover and he was delighted by my choice for the flap picture.
My mother didn't approve of the latter.
I am sure some will recognize them.
Some people actually had nice things to say about my photos, imagine that!
I even got some empty promises and hollow interest for professional projects.
Oh, well.
Maybe next book.
