Identity Theft Is A State of Mind

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 20, 2012

Waynesville Daily states the Federal Trade Commission estimates as many as nine million Americans have their identities stolen each year. Writer Sven Michael Davison has had first hand experience fighting identity theft. Most recently with a gas station pump credit card swipe machine. Apparently there was a device that sent my credit card and zip code to a computer near by and the thief was able to create fake cards. Within two weeks there were thousands of dollars racked up in gas charges all over Los Angeles.

Davison first experienced identity theft in 2006 and it took months to clear his name. The event was a major influence in creating State of Mind, a story where people place chips in their heads for medical, behavior, knowledge, and communication enhancements. The downside is hackers known as God Heads digitally breach these chips, place the individual into a coma, and use their bodies to commit crimes. State of Mind is the ultimate in identity theft. A world where you are trapped in your own body while it is forced to commit crime.

State of Mind is a near-future thriller, but the novel definitely comments on todays society and where we might be headed over the next few decades. It is the first novel in Davisons God Head Trilogy. Look for the second book, State of Union in the fall of 2012.

State of Mind is a finalist and winner of two Dan Poynters Global eBook Awards.

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

Davisons 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.
