I am looking for a book cover design that will display well for ebooks
and paperback copies, especially in thumbnails. The novel is titled
Strictly Analog and is a blend of cyberpunk, noir-style mystery, and
dystopia. I am interested in a cover that clearly fits in with
cyberpunk aesthetics, but if it has some of those other elements
included, that would be fine.
Here's the blurb:
What’s a private detective to do in a future where nothing is
private any more?
For Ted Lomax, the answer is to find clients who need their info kept
off the grid, and that’s what Ted has done for years, skirting the
high tech that runs the new California and living on the fringes of
society. But when his daughter is accused of murdering her
boyfriend–an agent in the Secret Police–Ted has to dig himself out
of the hole he’s been in for years in order to save her.
Before long, he’s pulled into a shadow world of underground hackers,
high-end programmers, and renegade gear-heads, all of whom seem to
have a stake in California’s future. The further he digs into the
case, the clearer it becomes that it’s about more than one dead
agent. Solving it might save his daughter. And it might get him
killed. And it just might open the door to secrets that reach back to
the attack that almost killed him eighteen years before. At any rate,
Ted Lomax will never be the same.
Some of the other elements included in the novel are Google-glass type
computers that keep everyone wired to the net all the time--except for
the protagonist, who is locked out of the technology; renegade hackers
who drive illegal internal combustion cars (everything else has gone
electric); nightclubs where partygoers experience computer generated
synesthesia, a whole cyberworld hidden from the view of average
