Wellll, here I am again, putting on a fundraiser to try to fund an unexpected surgery for my sweet cat Moo. She’s been with me for 12 years, through thick and thin! A couple days ago I noticed an abscess on her foot. She’s an inside cat, so it’s a mystery what could have caused it. Right after, I noticed another one further up the same leg. I thought they might be spider bites, because that’s really all I can think of. The vet also couldn’t say what caused them, but it looks like what happened is the first infection on the foot traveled up the leg and infected the lymph node, thus causing the second abscess, because the second mass is right on the lymph node.
In any case, it’s one of those frustrating cases where it’s really a small thing, but it’s turned into a big thing, and we’re looking at $700 for the surgery.
I’m trying desperately to help fund this, since it wasn’t in the budget. As such, I’m offering some goodies below!
You can now get this trilogy of premade book covers for $150 instead of $350:
Or any of the below covers for $50 each:
If interested in any, just email me with the cover # at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or if it’s the trilogy, just tell me you want the trilogy. First come, first served.
I’ll be fishing around my archives for other premade covers that still need a home later too.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 😛 )

Now and then our authors advertise through us. Today is your chance to pick up Paradise by Harper Alexander, the first volume in the Deadly Lush trilogy, for free! Don’t miss this fresh new voice in the YA Dystopian genre.
Shiloh lives on the Coast of Hope, flanked by the decimated ruins of the earth. Every year, people brave crossing the Badlands to the coast, with the hopes that they will be one of the lucky souls who merits an invitation to Paradise – the legendary shore of sweet deliverance across the sea. When Shiloh receives one of the magical message-in-a-bottle invitations that grants her passage to that golden land of enchantment, she jumps at the chance to leave her dystopian shore behind. Alone and vulnerable but full of hope, she casts off into the vast watery wilderness, and touches down on utopian soil unscathed. Paradise is everything she could have dreamed. Everything the stories say. Beautiful. Lush. Tantalizing. Too marvelous to ever return from. But there is something all the stories have left out. Another reason nobody ever comes back from Paradise.
