This book has been fifteen years in the making and I’m very excited that it remains both politically and socially relevant today
Los Angeles (PRWEB) April 30, 2012
Two men, three timelines, one location, “Dreams, Faith & Ammunition” is a novel about seeking the Promised Land. In the nineteenth century, one man seeks it literally, first by following Joseph Smith, and then James Jesse Strang to build a Kingdom of God on earth. In the twentieth century, another man envisions the Promised Land as the rewards and lifestyle he will achieve once he finishes his great American novel.
Both men move to Beaver Island, Michigan to fulfill their ideals. Both men face unforeseen obstacles and must overcome personal demons in their journey of faith and suicidal depression.
Davison states, “This book has been fifteen years in the making and I’m very excited that it remains both politically and socially relevant today."
Sven Michael Davison continues to work on the two sequels to “State of Mind” as “Dreams, Faith & Ammunition” gets closer to its pub date. “State of Union,” the sequel to “State of Mind” is still on track for release in late fall of this year. The third installment of the “God Head Trilogy” will be released in the early spring of 2013. That title will be announced around the time “State of Union” is published.
“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.
