Biografía del autor
David Lee Corley is a Hollywood screenwriter turned novelist. He is also a nomad. Four years ago, he sold or gave away just about everything he owned and set himself adrift in the world. He lived out of his backpack and circumnavigated the earth three times. As expected, his journey changed him. He began writing once again but with a new perspective. He has no plans to end his quest to see far corners of our planet. He figures life will take care of itself. “It has been a wild ride. I search for great stories and characters as I travel, many of which end up in my novels. I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed writing them.” – The Author David is still a nomad.
Descripción del libro
Why risk their lives to steal Thunder – America’s Newest High-Tech Weapon? Blackmail? Terrorism? Assassination? …or something much more nefarious? Thunder is an anti-tank drone developed by the wonks at DARPA. It’s fast. It’s smart. It’s deadly. It’s America’s answer to the world’s growing military threats. While on field tests in Germany, Thunder is high jacked by the very soldiers assigned to protect it. The weapon’s remote operator and the only person with the access code, Staff Sergeant Lowell Gamble, is accused of being in on the plot to steal the weapon system. Culper, the former CIA recruiter, tasks Billy Gamble, Lowell’s brother, with finding Thunder and clearing Lowell’s name. But how do you find something that can hide in plain sight? It’s a race against time and overwhelming odds before Thunder is lost forever or used to wreak havoc on an unsuspecting civilian population. Do you like Jack Reacher, Jason Bourne or Jack Ryan? Try Billy Gamble in Stealing Thunder – an unapologetic action thriller that will keep you glued until the last page.

Suspense and action are the keys to the cover design for Stealing Thunder. The story is about a rogue team of U.S. Army soldiers that steal a new weapon system called "Thunder" while it is on field trials in Germany. Thunder is an anti-tank drone. It is light-weight, fast and very deadly. This is not science fiction, but rather a peek at the new weapons the U.S. Military is developing. I picture Thunder as a cross between a Predator Drone, the Mars Rover and an Abrams tank (only smaller). It is about the size of a sports car and its main gun barrel would be no longer than the body because it needs to hide inside when not in use. It would be fairly smooth and have four all-terrain wheels on high-clearance arms. It has two weapons - a 120mm short-barrelled cannon (no turret) and a six-barrelled Gatling gun (minigun) that pivots. Both stay hidden inside the vehicle's body below panels until they are to be used. I have included some photos of current military drone designs. DARPA's GXV-T would probably be the closest design to Thunder. It does not have thick armor like a tank. It relies on stealth, speed, and maneuverability to avoid enemy fire. It also used reactive camouflage that changes as its surroundings change. It can tuck its wheels back into its body and cover them with panels so it becomes almost completely invisible. The story starts in Petra, Jordan moves to Jerusalem, Israel then Frankfurt, Germany, and Brussels, Belgium. This a full-blown action novel using the latest military technology, including helicopter gunships, Javelin shoulder-held anti-tank missiles, a high tech remote control console and the Sabot - the only tank shell that can pierce the armor on a main battle tank. The hero's job is to help his accused brother by finding and stopping Thunder before it wreaks havoc. Here is a helpful link https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DARPA_GXV-T to understand current drone technology. The two 3D books I have attached are the designs that I chose for my previous two book covers (both 99 Design contests). I have also included some schematics and other images that might be useful in a cover design. It's probably best to think of a design that is made of pieces of Thunder and not the full image of the weapon. We can leave it to the reader's imagination as to what Thunder looks like.
Lo que debe evitarse
I am not a big fan of cluttered book covers. It needs to be fairly simple with no more than three or four concepts.
