Memories Live Here
This is Marc Sheinbaum's first novel, where he draws from his experiences--growing up in Brooklyn, New York, raising a family and working as a business executive for over thirty-five years. He resides with his wife, Hildy, in Westchester, NY.
What if you could speak with history and people from your past? Josh Brodsky works deep in an underground lab in Silicon Valley where he leads a team of artificial intelligence engineers. His top-secret mission: to use AI to recreate the greatest political and military leaders from the past two hundred years. On the other side of the country, in an upper east side penthouse, lives his youngest brother, Louie, an investment banker in the midst of a financial—and gambling-- losing streak, leaving him desperate for the big payout his mega-technology merger is about to bring. After their mother dies, Josh and Louie’s pursuits are upended by mysterious malware—an attack that appear to have been launched by their middle brother, Donny. When Josh obtains their mother’s diaries, the brothers careen towards a rendezvous (at a secluded house) with an AI version of their mother, hoping to convince Donny to remove his ransomware. But they discover secrets they’ve kept from each other—and the truth behind their father’s death thirty years earlier. In addition to the above description, I'd like the designer to know that the book climax takes place in a rustic house outside of Silicon Valley. Two brothers have set a trap for the third inside the house, where they will have the encounter with an AI version of their mother. See section below "describe what I am looking for" for more details, but open to other cover design ideas.
fans of family mysteries/sagas; potentially with interest in "light tech" (i.e. not hard core science fiction fans so don't want cover to attract sci fi crowd/or turn off non-science fiction fans
I'm open to ideas, but one vision I have is for the outside of a rustic house (set in Northern California) with trees surrounding. It's twilight and the house is dark except for one lone light shining from a window in the rear (representing the AI/mother they're about to "meet" with). There might be three figures visible (the three brothers). One In front of the house near a car. Another on the front steps heading into the house, and the third barely visible inside (maybe peaking out front window since he's hiding so the brother by the car doesn't know he's in the house. we shouldn't see any features of the three men since it's twilight--little light visible.
What to avoid
while the description sounds like science fiction, i don't want to cover to look like this is a "scary" or science fiction book. I want it to draw people in --ie that "this looks interesting" (not fun, or light hearted)
