Cover Reveal: A Wish Made of Glass

By Brent King On May 18, 2015 Under Books

I have seen a lot of Cinderella retellings over the years and, though many of them are great stories, only a few have covers that have captivated me. I don’t know what it is that intrigues me, but it’s something in the combination of graphic, title, and font.

Once Upon a Prince by Rachel HauckCinderella's Shoes by Shonna SlayonWhat is Hidden by Lauren SkidmoreThe Captive Maiden by Melanie DickersonCinder by Marissa Meyer






Today it is my privilege to introduce you to another Cinderella cover that I can definitely add to my esteemed collection. Author and designer, Anne Elisabeth Stengl, has created a stunning combination for Ashlee Willis’ new novella. I love its mystery, color, and design. I celebrate with Ashlee because I know the euphoria an author feels when a cover comes together just right. Here it is:



What mysteries hide in the deepening wood of Isidore’s world? Ashlee gives us a peek:

Deep in a forest glade, the fey folk dance with Isidore, a young human child. Their kinship is the very fabric of her childhood. When her mother dies and her world darkens with sorrow, Isidore finds her belief in the fey folk wavering.

The love of her new step-sister, Blessing, proves an unexpected gift in her time of need. Yet even as their friendship blooms, Isidore begins to see that Blessing is everything she herself has always wanted to be, but is not. Jealousy grips Isidore as she watches this beautiful new sister steal away all she holds dear.

Driven to desperation, Isidore turns to the fey folk once more. She has only one wish to claim from them, one chance to make things right. But she must tread carefully. For wishes, like hearts, are easily broken. And obtaining the one thing she desires could mean destroying the one thing she truly needs.



Ashlee Willis is the author of fantasy for young adults. She lives in the heart of Missouri with her husband and young son. While most of her days are balanced between writing, reading and being a stay-at-home mom, she also finds time to enjoy forest rambles, photography, and playing the piano.
