From Ashes into Light

From Ashes Into LightIt’s been an extraordinary process
getting the cover just right for From
Ashes into Light
. And I couldn’t have done
it without designer Josue Menjivar of Fresh
Brewed Illustration
and my husband Zeke. I
also couldn’t have done it without
reading the novel again, for a seventh
time probably, doing the final edits
(except I’m still waiting for the Native American readers who are giving
feedback on the Native sections of the book). A story of this depth has
something new to say in each reading.
This time, I really felt the struggles
and the beauty together, the paradox,
that makes the tale so enthralling. That gave me the inspiration
for this installment (hopefully final!) of the cover.
