My first novel came out four years ago and quickly grew into a trilogy. The Uncommon Series is a fast-paced, deeply-researched near-future thriller that follows the irrepressible Mara Winkel as she leads her brand new tech startup from garage to IPO and gets caught up in an international conspiracy along the way. The series remains the #1 top-rate financial thriller on Amazon and wrestles with the challenges of entrepreneurship and the social implications of technology. A few months back, I talked to the original cover designer about updating the visual identity of the series. The results blew me away and we “stealth” launched them last week.
Check out the gorgeous new editions and let me know what you think. The design is based on a flow snake fractal and the “static” type was originally the product of an error in the design software that we immediately fell in love with. You can see more details about the art direction and side-by-sides with the original covers here. The designer also published a wonderfully granular essay detailing every step of the cover redesign process here.
If you haven’t read Mara’s story yet, now’s the time.
