Cover Reveal!

Of Breakable Things.

The title was originally Ashes to Ashes with respect to the phrase from the Anglican burial service. Furthermore, the main character's surname is Ash in association with the Ash tree, known sometimes as the "World Tree", which spans between this world and the next. I figured the symbolism was fitting in a story about the afterlife, so much so that I wanted the title to reflect it. But my publisher was right (as they tend to be). The title itself didn't have enough character.

Upon renaming the manuscript, I instantly envisioned a cover littered with glass shards and a flicker of an eye or a face in the reflection. In my wildest dreams, however, I couldn't have imagined an image so completely perfect for this story.






Here it is!
