“I have traveled within all seven continents and was able to draw upon personal experience for this next installment of the adventure.”
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) January 30, 2012
The recently released “State of Mind” will have two follow-up sequels to complete its story arc for what author Sven Michael Davison is calling his “God Head Trilogy.” The second book in the series is titled “State of Union.” The story and action take place on a worldwide scale focusing on Antarctica, Brazil, China, India, Mexico, and North America. “State of Union” will be released in the fall of 2012.
“I have traveled within all seven continents and was able to draw upon personal experience for this next installment of the adventure,” states Davison.
There will be plenty to tease “State of Union’s” release in the months ahead. Details for the third and final book title will be announced later this year.
“State of Mind” is a cautionary tale that examines the loss of freedom in a classic post-industrial dystopia. Jake Travissi, a fallen hero, is given a rare second chance at redemption. The price? Volunteer to have a computer chip implanted in his brain and join Homeland Security’s experimental Enhanced Unit.
Davison wrestles with many of the most compelling themes of cyberpunk genre today: Should we embrace every technological advance without question? Should humankind blend itself physically with machines? What does freedom really mean? All of these questions are answered within a vivid tapestry where the boundaries between the virtual world and the real world have dissolved.
“State of Mind” is a finalist and winner of two Dan Poynter’s Global eBook Awards.
