What's your vision?
I'm looking for an ebook cover for a "The Power Series of Short Stories: Season 1" The first season contains 6 stories. Below are the blurbs for the series and each individual story. The Power Series is an ongoing collection of complete and individual short stories with a greater overall story arc. The series is set in the not-too-distant future, when technology has given people powers beyond their wildest dreams...or nightmares. The series not only explores these powers but also the inherent legal and ethical questions, all while being wrapped in an exciting and thought-provoking narrative. The Power Series is not connected solely be theme, and it is not a retelling of a single event from different points of view (though that may occasionally happen). Characters and storylines often overlap to push the overall story arc along. The Power Series is a series, not a serial. Understanding one story is not dependent on reading previous stories. Because each short story in the series is an entity unto itself, they do not have to be read in any particular order. Reading a single Power Series story should leave you satisfied that the story was complete, but, like all good stories, it should leave you wanting more. Season 1 includes: Mind Upload Thirty-five year-old Roy Michaelson is dying of cancer. Before he undergoes an experimental new surgery, having his mind uploaded into a computer, Roy promises his wife Carolyn that he will see her after the surgery. But when he wakes up, Carolyn is not there and his world is forever changed. Saving Memories For seventeen year old Amanda Heller to become the person she is meant to be, she must return to the psychiatric ward where she was held as a child in an attempt to save herself and her memories. Going to Ground Derek Jackson lives on the streets of Chicago. He wants to live in peace, to be left alone, because he can't control the power surging through him. But when he is attacked and his two assailants wind up dead and seriously injured, Derek is forced to trust a mysterious stranger. The Gamblers Will Benson can see the future in his dreams. In order to save a young man's life and avoid a catastrophe, he gambles everything on the man who will one day terrorize the country by revealing to him the first step toward his dark future. Fearmonger Harlan Davis uses his seat in the U.S. Senate to pass laws that vilify and detain those who have been altered by nanobot injections, the same injections that killed his son and did something far worse to him. The Road Ahead: Part 1 After being sprung from a secret military base, Roy Michaelson is introduced to Amanda, Will, and Derek, who have questions about the nanobots and new information about Paul Dockard's whereabouts. But the unexpected appearance of a second, older Amanda changes everything. Basically, the overall story is about people who receive superhuman abilities from nanobot injections. Some are good. Some are bad. The government wants to vilify all of them (they've built an army of robots to hunt them down) and the biotech firms want the technology. On the cover, I would like the title (The Power Series of Short Stories: Season 1), my name (Mark Oetjens), and if there's room, please list the titles of each of the 6 stories.
I like the idea of lightning as a symbol for Power. Also, please include technology in some form or another. I would like the individual story titles on the cover, but only if you can find a way to logically fit them. And it must look good as a thumbnail, i.e. You should be able to clearly tell what the images are and read the title. Though I want my name on the cover, the title is the important thing. As this is only Season 1, I am looking for someone I can work with on later seasons and any spinoff series (I have a couple planned already). And I plan to put out a print edition, but not right away.
