A bit of a surprise experiment. While I am desperately busy working on future book releases, I had the chance to try a case laminate hardcover release of Telepath. This crucially took up very little of my time since I just needed slightly modified cover art and the existing paperback interior.
There was a delay while I got the proof copy but the hardcover is now available on limited outlets. Note that the cover art is printed directly onto the book. There is no separate paper cover.
The following photo shows my proof hardcover next to the paperback. As this is a proof hardcover, it has a proof banner printed across it. That banner obviously won’t appear on the standard sales copies. The hardcover book is only fractionally larger than the paperback and has a virtually identical interior.
