BOOK AUTHOR - BOOK COVER FOR BOOK Gabriella and Dr. Duggan's Secret Dimensional Transport Machine
What's your vision?
I wrote this book in 2012 so it has a cover already but my cover has been the worst part in all the reviews so I want to change it. The book is young adult science fiction and is aimed at the high school to adult audience. The reviews have said that the current cover looks to young and in general the cover is very bad. The book’s protagonist, Gabriella, is an approximately 16-17 year old girl who is slight but athletic. The story is about many things but two things mainly should be featured on the cover. First, Gabriella's travels using the Dimensional Transport machine which allow her to zip around the planet really, really fast. In the book she only travels between two spots, USA and Portugal, as that is where the two machines are located. On the original cover is a picture of her going into the machine which is really just a giant metal ring with electro-mechanical attachments and bundles of wires and hoses coming out of it. The book describes it as very scratch built, made by college students in a research program, and very experimental. It is still in experimental stages and the only reason Gabriella is able to use it is because Dr. Duggan is a friend of the family and he wants to use her as a spokesperson for the machine once it goes into production. The second aspect of the book focuses on a sport that Gabriella plays called Ultraball. The idea is that it is something of a merger of soccer/football and parkour/free running where there is a field game being played at the same time that a warrior dash/ninja warrior style race is being run on the perimeter of the field. The men play the soccer/football style field game and women the obstacle laden foot race. Gabriella runs in this race for a farm team out of Philadelphia yet she is still in high school by day. The soccer/football style field game is not really much described in the book except to say that they use 2 balls and there is some form of goal and it is very violent. A lot of the book focuses on Gabriella’s training with her team and running obstacles in races. Much of the mystery in the book surrounds the fact that her father dies (or is murdered?) in chapter one and Gabriella finds out that her family has really been in hiding for pretty much her entire life and that everything she knew was a lie. Her father was a geneticist and she thinks that a genetics company called NuGen killed him. NuGen happens to sponsor many of the athletes that Gabriella deals with since in the story genetic modification is available to whoever can pay its steep prices. Since Gabriella is not modified they obviously hate her but because she seems to be able to perform so well against them she begins to think that her father really did modify her also.
