Biografia do autor
NaN, or "not a number," is a database error caused by invalid input into a mathematical calculation, such as when you try to compute numeric pi with apple strudel. So what is knotanumber? Knotanumber is what you get when you start with a pimply, asthma-ridden, Bible belt-on, Atari-binging, Asimov-reading, never-been-kissed nerd and, through the application of epigenetic lifestyle factors and Pokemon pellets, transform him into a gently aged, distance-running, veggie-eating, anti-evangelical, badass middle manager-who is still a nerd.
Descrição do livro
When Matt Harmon’s brain pattern is rebodified seventy-one years in the future, he discovers an inner stirring at odds with the outer desolation of the landscape. To pay off his debt to society, he must help a sentient power company ward off a conspiracy from human hackers—but the hackers want to recruit him to their side.
18+ male and female readers interested in sci-fi, tech, science, and psychology

Necessidades do design
The main sci-fi concepts are: human rebodiment with mind augmentation, high-tech, self-sufficient cities (arcologies), and sentient AI with human-like avatars. The book is a mix of dystopian/utopian elements with ecological disaster and bio-engineered "solar forests" that provide power to enclosed, gem-like cities. Depression/dysfunction is a major theme, but there is also ingenuity and wonder. The story is really about how the main character comes to terms with the failures of his prior life and the demons he carries with him into a future which is both wondrous and terrifying. The example cover was done by a rank amateur (the author). The first part of the book can be found here: https://www.wattpad.com/story/208602843-negative-energy (chapter 2: The Solar Forest provides a lot of world-building imagery)
O que evitar
No VR gear/headsets. The sci-fi in this book is beyond VR to neural implants and shape-shifting materials. Also avoid being too literal with technology tropes like Matrix-like lines of code, etc...
