Levels: The Host on

Wow – it was fun learning how to design a book. Lots of work, too! Thank goodness for! I’m really proud of the result.

Please comment below if you’d like to learn more about this rewarding and complex process—self-publishing a book that was in print, but is now out of it.

We designed the dead tree version, too, coming soon!

If you like science fiction and suspense, this is the book for you! Check it out!

In near-future Manhattan, First-Leveler Watly Caiper, desperate for cash, lets a rich Second Leveler rent his body in an ultra-real game called Hosting. Framed for murder, he’s on the run from the police. Can he catch the real killer before they catch him?

Levels: The Host

Designing a New Cover for an Old Book

My husband and I are digitally repackaging his sci-fi novel The Host, published in 1991. We spent all day yesterday, generally messing with each other and slaving away over a hot book cover.

Can’t wait to show it to you all! I am planning on sharing the process by which we worked on this piece. It will be the first of 3.

Here’s a link to the original tome, published by Bantam books and available just now in very limited supplies on The Host by Peter Emshwiller

Cheers, and thank’s for stopping by!

Developing a Cover – Levels: The Host by Peter R. Emshwiller

Hi, Team!

We are doing a new cover for the launch of my husband’s book as an eBook. Which of these covers do you prefer?

These are very rough comps, and we’ll add bells and whistles and refine the look. Let me know what you think.

Thanks so much for looking and adding your valuable feedback!
