Ever since I started writing this story, I’ve had an image in my head for it’s cover. I kept picturing a woman looking down at her hands and the earth around her. Try as I might, I couldn’t get the image out of my head. Which is a good thing!

I did a little bit of searching for an appropriate picture and found it via the Stock Exchange, an stock image site, and Jesse Therrien, a photographer who shares some of his work on there.

I asked him for permission to use his photograph in conjunction to some of mine in hopes of making a visual image of what I keep seeing inside of my head. Sure enough, I was able to do that. Below is the book cover that I’ve created with said pictures for Gaia’s Reprieve.
