I love this cover, and it’s one I agonized over. The designer, Keri Knutson at Alchemy Book Covers, offered me several choices which I narrowed down to two. Only one was this abstract. I almost went with a more traditional cover, displaying a teen girl’s face, but my daughter Carmen convinced me to go with this image that spoke to my heart. Its simplicity says everything I want it to say about my main character’s broken life, her search for blame, her journey toward hope. Oh, and there literally is a shattered window in the first chapter, from which the rest of the story flows.
It’s a thrilling moment to share this most perfect cover for a story and characters I’ll soon be releasing into the world. Watch for Fault Lines to be released at the end of April!
