"Collapsity: When All Falls Down At Once" - a climate-change action tale designed to curl toes. As the worldwide temperature rises, humanity starts to boil.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
Title: Collapsity. Subtitle (especially optional as could be too wordy for cover): When All Falls Down At Once. By: Richard Diefenbeck, Jr. Collapsity follows several characters as climate change exacerbates many of humanity's problems all over the world. There is Tip Wire, the ex-internet guru at an impasse when he launches on a plan of mass elucidation, the East Indian med student who works as a cam girl on the side, a pair of psychopath rich twins, a middle-aged fitness guru facing divorce and several more - all propelled out of their usual trajectories by the great upheaval of mass change. "A band of survivors" . . . yaddayaddayadda - boom! Utopia! Collapsity really is a book about ideas masquerading as an action-adventure. "Seeds. Just planting seeds." - as Bill Hicks said. A fictionalized account of what will happen when the worldwide average temp goes up three degrees Celsius. Apocalyptic, ecopunk, sci-fi. Looking for more of a literary look than a typical genre look. Dystopia turns into utopia. In the end, more Ecotopia than Fallout. Also a satiric element is possible, ala Terry Southern. Sex always sells. And I like neon. Or it could be completely conceptual, a piece of art you have to turn your head to look at as you softly whistle. I look forward to seeing what a great designer could come up with.
Attached is a draft of part one. Current drafts of part 2 and 3 are available if you write to email@example.com. Tip's beacons play a larger role in part three. Since the beacons are an original detail to this novel, they could potentially be a focal point, standing like the Shrike does on Hyperion covers. An organic, twisting giant navy blue or black robot finger extruding from the dirt? I would like to see ecopunk having a go at being the next successful sci-fi subgenre since cyberpunk and steampunk. Perhaps this cover could help inspire an ecopunk “look.” http://www.goodreads.com/list/show/13051.Ecopunk_Fiction (Does not include “Arcadia” by Lauren Groff but should.) I like everything from pop surrealism to Keith Haring to Edward Hopper to Yumiko to Ellen Forney to Ojimbo to Dan Clowes to Banksy to folk art to Shepard Fairey to noir (eco-noir?).

Ivan is a great artist, and working with him was really a pleasure. The final cover is stunning, able to convey the inner spirit of the book with elegance and mistery, enhancing its message.
I am really grateful, he did such a fine work that I still can't believe that this cover is for me and my book!
Thank you Ivan, you're the best!
