Swarm is a cyber-noir thriller that fuses political intrigue with cutting-edge concepts of evolutionary biology, electronic dance music, neurological weapons research, and the dark side of social media to forge an incendiary expose’ of who we are today and what we might become tomorrow. Austin-based hacktivst Tom Ayana is already a flash-mob impresario when experimental software code leaked to him from the Defense Department propels his online alter ego, Swarm, into “the elusive alpha that controlled the hive mind.” Tom’s best friend, an electronic dance music DJ named Xander Smith, becomes an unwitting accomplice as Swarm surreptitiously uses Xander’s raves as a testing ground for his mind control experiments. As Tom/Swarm pursues his quest to jump start emergent collective consciousness and usher in the next phase of human evolution, he becomes a prime target for Jack Duggan, a Homeland Security Cyber-Investigator with a reputation for going rogue. Risking his career to untangle a web of corruption and betrayal that reaches from a military atrocity in Afghanistan and techno rave riots in Las Vegas and New York to a video game virtual world and the highest echelons of the U.S. government, Duggan enlists evolutionary biologist Cara Park to help him stop Swarm before he ignites a cyber-insurrection with the power to shatter the status quo and rewrite the rules of democracy.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I'm looking for a book cover design that is classy, eye-catching, intriguing and graphically elegant. This is a thriller full of colorful characters and big ideas about social evolution through electronically-induced mind control. The cover should capture the edgy vibe of countless brains converging into a global singularity of emergent higher consciousness.
Since I'll be publishing in a digital/print on demand format, I'll need a full wrap-around book jacket dust cover layout. I'm attaching photos that I'd like to form the core of the cover art but am open to ideas that incorporate those images in an interesting way.
