Facsimile Cover


For a ticket to Earth, seventeen-year-old Anna-Maria “Ann” Solano is willing to jettison her birth planet, best friend, and the boy who loves her. Especially since all she’s required to do is escort Dace Keeling, a young naturalist, through the wilderness of the partially terraformed planet Eco. Ann‘s determination to escape the limitations of her small, frontier colony never falters, until Dace’s expeditions uncover three secrets. One offers riches, one shatters Ann’s perceptions of herself, and one reveals that the humans stranded on Eco are not its only inhabitants.

Ann’s willing to sacrifice friendship and love for a new life on Earth. But when an entire species is placed in jeopardy by her actions, she must make a choice – fulfill the dream that’s always sustained her, or save the planet she’s never considered home.

Cover Love


I love the cover to FACSIMILE because it is eye-catching enough to draw readers to the book, but also represents the content of the book so well – not just in a literal sense, but also symbolically.

The empty landscape bathed in tans and golds captures the idea of the planet Eco as a barren, isolated world.  In the background are hills that represent the rock piles discussed in the book; formations that mark the underground caverns where many important scenes take place.

The lone female figure is perfect to represent my protagonist, Anna-Maria “Ann” Solano.  The figure stands in a bleak wilderness – which is exactly how Ann feels about Eco at the beginning of the novel.  Like the isolated figure, Ann feels alone and disconnected from her family and friends.  She gazes on an image of the Earth, which represents her dream — to travel back to her grandparents’ home world. Even though Earth could not actually be seen from Eco, I feel that this symbolic image is a powerful statement of Ann’s desire, and a perfect way to represent that aspect of the novel.

I also love the typeface chosen for the title and other text.  It really represents the science fiction genre of the book.

All in all, I am thrilled with the cover of FACSIMILE, and would like to thank Month9Books and the cover designer, Kimberley of
