This week has been a doozy! But the best kind. I redesigned the blog, complete with a new banner, background, font style, and will be tweaking all the tabs and pages over the next couple days, because everything is SO outdated. Most notable of all, perhaps, is that I FINALLY designed a company logo, after 5 years in business. You would think anyone who’s been in business multiple years would have a logo…but ESPECIALLY SOMEONE WHOSE BUSINESS IS DESIGN… The irony is not lost on me. But I finally have one! Yay!
Next on the list of what I’m most excited about is the new direction I’m going with premade covers:
From the beginning, I have ALWAYS wanted to brand myself more with this type of artwork – more complex, detailed scenes in the vein of fantasy, because that’s what I really love and am passionate about, but as I got bogged down in custom work and requests I kind of never had time to make what I wanted, and really got burnt-out creatively as well. But now I’m being extremely picky about the custom projects I take on (and how often I take them on), and am focusing more on what I get inspired to create. You can expect a lot more covers like this! Although they do make more time, so they won’t get cranked out quite like the rest.
Due to the romance cover demand, and how quickly they seem to sell after I post them, I will be doing more of those as well. Here are a couple new ones from yesterday:
And here’s a look at the latest custom cover, which exemplifies the type of project I’m most willing to take on these days, very fantasy-esque:
Last but not least, I want to invite everyone to come hang out over at my Facebook page: Come Hang Out with Me! You get a much more ‘live’ experience over there, can participate in ‘flash’ sales, peruse clearance covers, chat with yours truly, etc. Hope to see you around!
Things have been busy this week for the Machine. We’ve cranked out some premade covers:
…Completed a couple custom covers:
…Sold a couple premade covers:
…And as usual, in the process of all this came up with more new book ideas on the writing front than I know what to do with.
Happy writing and cover shopping!

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.
That’s right – another sale you won’t want to miss! Just because it’s been awhile since the last. Take advantage and scoop up covers at unbeatable prices for all of your stories and stories-to-be! Happy shopping! http://www.thebookcovermachine.com/shop
