I found one of the more difficult things to write for the book is the back cover blurb. I thought I'd share the draft text of the back cover here. Let me know your thoughts. Does it catch your attention in the first sentence? Does it make you want to read the book? I'd love your feedback.
Oh, and I now have an ISBN number... one step closer.
Till next time, Greg
In 2028, a mysterious group known as The Quantum
Contingent has achieved true quantum computing
capabilities. The Quantum Contingent have their sights
set on achieving immortality for a select few that will
chart humanity’s destiny.
Jack and Sarah, sibling spies, race across the globe at
a frenetic pace to stop this nefarious group and their
anonymous Founder. Jack and Sarah are part of Quotient,
a mysterious, independent, spy agency whose secret
advantage is also quantum based.
The Quantum Contingent takes place in exotic destinations
around the globe and features real technologies, extrapolated
for tomorrow, including cryptocurrency, drones, and SpaceX
rocket ships. It is a techno-spy thriller for today with pop-culture
references and even its own Spotify playlist, featuring a song
for each chapter in the book.
Greg spent his career in technology.
He did a TedX talk on AI and has
channeled his technology and global
travel experiences into The Quantum
Contingent. The cover is based on
the church of St. George, one of the
monolithic ‘rock churches’ in Lalibela,
Ethiopia. Greg is shown here outside
of this World Heritage site, which
serves as a key location in the novel.
