"State of Mind" book cover

I look forward to walking around the booths, checking out all the hard work by other authors, and enjoying the relaxing setting at USC.

If you’re taking a trip to USC this Saturday to explore the LA Times Festival of Books, be sure to stop by booth #762 between 3:00 and 5:00PM to get your copy of “State of Mind” signed by the author. The book will be available for sale all weekend as will Davison’s first novel “Blockbuster.”

“I look forward to walking around the booths, checking out all the hard work by other authors, and enjoying the relaxing setting at USC,” says Davison. “This is one of the biggest book festivals in the nation.”

“Sate 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.

“A thoughtfully composed piece of cyberpunk that will please readers of both science fiction and noir.” – Kirkus Reviews

“Davison’s Los Angeles is pulpy- vibrant, an unforgettable wasteland. State of Mind is the world of the near future, the horrible synthesis of human desire and the technology to make it a reality. – ForeWord Reviews

“An intelligent, thought provoking, cinematic post-cyberpunk thriller and a great read.”
