I need a front cover for the US version of the novel : "Invisible Symbiosis", which is a Kindle best-seller in France. It is a suspense novel with a touch of technology (near future / artificial intelligence).
The novel is for everybody, not only sci-fi readers.
It will be mainly published in ebook (Amazon Kindle). I only need the front cover for this contest so you can concentrate on creativity. I will then order the full jacket for print on demand to the winner.
Here is the pitch :
"Leo Cameron is a silicon valley genius, the new whizz kid. And he is about to revolutionize the world with an astounding artificial intelligence that he created . For no reason, he jumps one night from the Golden Gate bridge and must be heart transplanted. After two months in the coma he wakes up totally amnesiac and with a radically different personality.
The same night Leo jumped from that bridge, a superstar singer, Laura Della, has a terrible car accident in New York. Since then, she is unable to get back to stage and face her horde of fans. Laura is now on the verge of total breakdown as she feels that she « lost » something in the accident, her inspiration, some angelic protection.
Leo on his side is under high pressure from his partner and shareholders who can't wait anymore and need proofs and results of his invention. When faced with Eve, the artificial intelligence he created, he discovers a stunning creature, full of life and eager for growth. But his new personality completely desorients him and prevents him from making sound decisions.
Both Leopold and Laura must get their lives back.
But something much bigger is at stake.
An unbelievable plot they both fell in."
Theme of the book :
The wonders and limits of artificial intelligence compared to human nature.
There are three main characters in the book :
Leo : the silicon valley genius. Completely amnesiac following his jump from the Golden Gate and with a new personality.
Laura : she is a world renowned singer, very spiritual, connected to the angels. The story will reveal that she was born with two hearts and that one of them was transplanted to Leopold. Hence, Leo and Laura are deeply connected together, feeling the same emotions (so the title : INVISIBLE SYMBIOSIS)
Eve : the artificial intelligence that Leo designed. She is in the form of a tall black box in which holographic projections give life to a stunning girl (see extracts and descriptions in the attached brief). Eve is thirsty for growth and learning, and becoming more and more human. The end will reveal that she orchestrated everything : Leo and Laura's accident and heart transplant. Eve is ultimately the key character of this story.
Genres of the book :
Suspense with a touch of technology (near future)
What this book is not :
Some artistic directions :
I would prefer a dark background to better reflect the suspense and mystery.
One direction would be to depict Eve (see in the attached brief extract « When Leopold encounters Eve » and read the description) in her cube but yet being very mysterious about her (she only appears in the second part of the book).
Please read attachement where you will find :
- The full brief where your can find additional details : some extracts, amazon reviews in France ( translated in english!) as well as some examples of covers and photos I like and artistics suggestions.
- A copy of the novel (It would be ideal if you took some time to read it – 3 hours read)
Thanks for your participation and creative input !
