Louis K. Lowy’s Jan. 28 book launch of To Dream, book one of his science fiction thriller Anatomy of a Humachine drew a packed crowd to South Florida’s iconic Books and Books.
He was introduced by noted author, John Dufresne.
Lowy familiarized the attendees to the novel’s most prominent characters through short readings from the book. Two question and answer sessions were held. The audience was very receptive and asked an array of questions ranging from writing habits to plot structure and character development. Afterward, Lowy signed books and greeted those who attended.
To Dream can be purchased direct from the publisher – print and ebook, or through all good print and ebook online stores.
Here are a few photographs taken of the event:
We are pleased to reveal the full cover wrap designs for the hardcover and trade paperback versions of To Dream (Anatomy of a Humachine Book 1), a thought-provoking science fiction novel by Louis K Lowy. The artwork and design is by the amazing Dean Samed.
The hardcover (grey clothbound with sleeve) will be released early January, followed soon thereafter by the trade paperback version. Preorders will be available late this year.
Guilt ridden over the death of her 17-year-old son, Jay, scientist Niyati Bopari heads a team that creates a Humachine (human machine) for mega-corporation Ameri-Inc. Niyati dubs the Humachine J-1 and creates it in Jay’s image. She secretly infuses it with Jay’s DNA. J-1 is the most sophisticated robot ever created and its purpose is to replace human labor. Before J-1 and his blueprints can be transported to Ameri-Inc. headquarters a rogue Ameri-Inc. agent attempts to steal them.
Anatomy of a Humachine is a science fiction tour de force spanning two centuries and crossing two planets. Book I: To Dream centers on J-1, an artificial intelligence struggling to find his humanity; the grieving scientist who created him; the ruthless head of the corporation who owns him; and the iron-willed leader of a rebel force seeking revenge for the death of her family and the destruction of her planet.
IFWG Publishing has wanted to commission Dean Samed for a long time: a truly skilled and talented artist and cover designer. When we signed the book contract with Louis K Lowy for his novel, To Dream (book 1 of Anatomy of a Humachine), Dean’s style was an obvious match, and we are grateful that he was available to weave his magic for us. It is with immense pleasure that we reveal the front cover.
To Dream will be released in the second quarter of 2016. Stay tuned for more information about this powerful science fiction.
