Nothing Left But Dust Cover reveal is HERE!
I'm beyond thrilled to release the cover art for my debut novel, Nothing Left But Dust. It features a photograph of Market Street and the Ferry Building after the earthquake. I don't have a record of who the photographer was, but I can only imagine the fear and fascination of wandering those streets soon after the earthquake struck when the surrounding city was on fire.
I believe the cover perfectly captures the apocalyptic tone of the book and sets the stage for our protagonists, Jo and Otto, as they navigate through the ruins and fight for survival.
Nothing Left But Dust is a powerful tale of love, loss, and hope set against the backdrop of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake.
Follow Jo, a young woman struggling to heal after her Papa's death, as she tries to break free of her uncle's indentured servitude and secure an apprenticeship at a map-making shop.
And Otto, a privileged young man with dreams of running away to become an artist, as he battles to escape the clutches of a ruthless crimp who means to have him Shanghaied.
When the city is struck by the devastating earthquake on the morning of April 18th, their lives are forever changed. While it sets Otto free, it takes everything Jo holds dear and unearths a dark family secret.
As they traverse the burning ruins of the city in search of answers, Jo and Otto must find the strength to survive and the courage to confront their families, all while navigating the unfamiliar landscape of falling in love.
Nothing Left But Dust is a must-read for fans of Young Adult Historical Fiction. It's an edge-of-your-seat coming-of-age survival story that will leave you inspired by the strength and resilience of the human spirit.
Nothing Left But Dust will be available on April 18, 2023.
