I am so excited to finally share the book cover for All Things Come to an End.
The concept came to me quickly after I began writing about the main character, Destinee Clark. She was born and raised in Virginia Beach, VA and loves the beach. There is something about the beach that brings a calm about her. So, she often finds herself there when she's going through something. As she stands on the pier she is deep in thought.
Her dress is turquoise for a reason. It represents femininity, sophistication, and spiritual grounding. Notice how her arms are descending down in front of her. If we could see her hands they would be clasped over her lower abdomen. Showing she is defensive and nervous.
The hourglass at the end of the pier represents time and how we will eventually run out of it. I was conflicted about the ocean color. Ultimately, I went with a violet color. We all know that red and blue make violet. Red is a color of strength and blue is integrity. Together they create a balance of the mind and body, something Destinee is seeking. She's searching for spiritual fulfillment to calm her emotions.
All Things Come to an End is the first novel from the Through the Journey series.
“All things come to an end so there can be beautiful new beginnings.” Twenty-seven-year-old Destinee Clark learns this in more ways than one. After a recent breakup with an abusive, dominant man, she decides to give up on love to focus on finishing law school and building her career. A career opportunity leads her back to her hometown in Virginia—a place she vowed she would never return to after leaving for college to Washington, D.C.
She meets Chris Richardson, who finds his way to her heart and changes her life in ways she never expected. Destinee learns everything in life comes at an expense, and nothing and no one is exempt from loss, illness, and unexpected change.
Through pain and struggle, Destinee learns that some things are beyond her control. That when we are born into this world we are only guaranteed one thing, a death date. There’s not much else that can be controlled. Her journey through hurt, heartache, and disappointment stretches her beyond her natural limits, and she clings to the hope that she will grow stronger.
