Wikipedia describes a book as follows:

A book is a set or collection of written, printed, illustrated, or blank sheets, made of paper, parchment, or other various material, usually fastened together to hinge at one side. A single sheet within a book is called a leaf, and each side of a leaf is called a page. A book produced in electronic format is known as an electronic book (e-book).

Books may also refer to works of literature, or a main division of such a work. In library and information science, a book is called a monograph, to distinguish it from serial periodicals such as magazines, journals or newspapers. The body of all written works including books is literature. In novels and sometimes other types of books (e.g. biographies), a book may be divided into several large sections, also called books (Book 1, Book 2, Book 3, etc.). A lover of books is usually referred to as a bibliophile, a bibliophilist, or a philobiblist, or, more informally, a bookworm.

A store where books are bought and sold is a bookstore or bookshop. Books can also be borrowed from libraries.

In 2010, Google estimated that there were approximately 130 million unique books in the world.

Another "Flesh, Bone, Clone" Cover Idea

Here is another rough cover page idea. Flesh, Bone, Clone (Copyright © 2014 by Edward Murphy) is an action/adventure thriller. The story is about human cloning with a new twist.

Most of the story takes place in the U.S. southwest and the Washington D.C. area. The protagonest in the book is a private detective named Blake Marshall. The daughter of the richest man in the world sets Blake off on a dangerous and thrilling journey hunting for the lock to a very special key. The contents of the box Blake finds is so shocking and world changing that it becomes his quest to save the world.

I hope you will enjoy the book when it's published. There are going to be more thrillers with Blake Marshall in them in the future. That is if there is a future for Blake Marshall and the rest of humanity once Flesh, Bone, Clone becomes reality.

Let me know what you think of the picture art suggestion for the cover of Flesh, Bone, Clone.

Keep reading great books. My novel Cure Complex is available on Kindle
