In certain scenes in The Glass Wives, Evie and her friends Beth and Laney drink coffee at Evie’s kitchen counter. Nicole, on the other hand, drinks tea. And yes, I know the cover isn’t literal, but I can’t help it…I like a little literal now and then, and there is both literal and metaphorical meaning in this cover. As there is in the title.
But more importantly, what’s in your cup today?
Today I had Starbucks Blonde Roast (made at home) which is my weekend coffee (too $$$ for every day). But tonight in my cup I think I’ll take something a little stronger, just to offset the cold and add to the ambience as the dogs and I hunker down for movie night in front of the fire!
And yes, this is the final cover, which I just happened to see today as I was poking around on Goodreads! 64 people have added it to their to-read list, and two early readers have given it five stars. I know that opinions vary with all books, but that was a very nice way to start a very cold Saturday!
Why the asterisk after Tea Cup? Because technically, based on a few China cup experts I know, these are indeed coffee cups, based on the shape and the absence of a saucer. Not that I needed them to be coffee cups because I’m literal and the characters drink coffee not tea. But I’m just saying. That my friends, is called cover karma.
