Today I’m featuring the cover of the novel, The Consistency of Parchment, a story about our links to the past, and our often frustrated attempts to break away from the constraints that this history imposes upon us.
The cover image conveys the interconnected nature of our lives. James Tenedero, the author, explains that physical artefacts – and the ways in which these symbols provide an ongoing link to the past – is a recurring motif in the book. In the book, Cal Wendell and Kendra Velasquez see their fates joined by a random encounter, and then face the need to come to terms with their respective histories as they seek to uncover the secret hidden in a safe deposit box.
Keep in touch with James through his blog or on Twitter @jamestenedero.
