New Premade Covers for a Cause

Getting very little traction on anything these days, reinforcing that I probably made the right decision in quitting awhile back, but I am trying to raise funds for a cause right now, so here I go, trying anyway…

New premade covers (email bookcovermachine@gmail.com if interested):

#1365, available for $60:

#1366, available for $25:

#1367, available for $50:

I will keep making premades until I sell something. What is everyone looking for these days?

If you want to check out my cause, here’s the GoFundMe I just set up: https://www.gofundme.com/f/emergency-pet-surgery-for-baby-moo

Even $5 helps. Feel free to share.

All Covers Must Go – Biggest Clearance Event Ever!

Hi all – just wanted to let you guys in on the biggest sale The Book Cover Machine has ever held! I’m in the process of marking my website’s ENTIRE inventory of premade covers down to $25 each. All these covers are on my old hard drive collecting dust and must go. If they don’t sell at the discounted price within the next few weeks, they’ll be going in the trash bin so I don’t have to keep storing them on the off chance that someone will purchase one someday. I really need to prioritize and clear out space for other things! If you’ve had your eye on something, now is the time to get it before it’s gone for good  Not to mention, they’ll never be cheaper than this. Feel free to spread the word! www.thebookcovermachine.com/shop

Hint – if you see a cover that you want but it hasn’t been marked down yet, shoot me a note at bookcovermachine@gmail.com and I’ll mark it down for you!

Premade Banners and Summer Availability

It’s been awhile once again! Quick update on what’s going on in The Book Cover Machine world. I’ve decided to start offering premade banners in addition to premade book covers. These are great as-is if you just want to dress up your author profile, or you can add text, images, book covers, etc., and use them for all your promotional needs! I offer them for $5 each (or a sheet of 7 for $25) on my Facebook page. You can peruse the album here. Lots more coming soon! Also check out a few examples below:

And here are a couple examples of how you might add your book covers for promotional purposes:

Also, regarding summer availability: I have a lot of summer activities, gigs, and commitments stacking up outside of the office, so if you need anything from me before September, GET IT NOW. I’ll still be fulfilling premade orders, but if you were hoping to get any wrap covers, promotional material, etc, now’s the time to do it. Most of you know I don’t really do custom covers anymore, but if you really need something and are willing to pick out your images from depositphotos.com, and have worked with me enough to know you won’t need more than 3 drafts, feel free to inquire so I can help you out over the next week or two. Then I’m out! Email: bookcovermachine@gmail.com

Premium Premade Covers

The first half of this month, I was on vacation in Mexico! It was actually a delayed honeymoon (delayed by almost 2 years), because when we got married, my husband and I prioritized getting a house over having a big wedding or a honeymoon. Still think that was the right decision, but it was amazing to get away at last!

Upon returning, I’m more convinced than ever that the direction I’m taking The Book Cover Machine is the right decision for me (little to no custom work, fancier premades in fantasy genres that I truly love designing, more freedom in my schedule to choose what I want to create and when I want to create it…). This approach has renewed my inspiration! So I’ve been gleefully working on covers like these, just for the pleasure of the artwork:

They were both listed as ‘premium premade covers’ over at The Book Cover Machine’s Facebook page, but as you can see the first one is no longer available, as I decided to keep it for myself and use it as a spin-off to one of my existing mermaid books. I just couldn’t resist.

If you’re interested in the second cover (which I also wanted to keep, but don’t have a story for at the moment), it’s available for $200, and you can inquire by emailing me at bookcovermachine@gmail.com.

I should be adding more regular premade covers (the cheaper ones available for $49 or less) to the shop soon!

(If you did a double-take at the $200 price tag and had a small heart attack and wonder how the leap in price fits in, suffice it to say these ‘premium’ covers take a lot more time, thought, and attention to detail to create, and while I still very much want to offer covers that all my clients can afford, I have also learned the worth of my work. After 5 years in the industry, it’s nice to finally realize the only one who’s limiting me to eating Ramen for the rest of my life is myself, and the low prices I put on my own work 😛 )
