Book Covers for Less

Hello Everyone,

How are you today? Awesome? Not-so-awesome? Well, I want you to know that however you are doing, God is with you, and He Loves you no matter what. 🙂 Right now, I’m going through a transition phase of going from stay-at-home mom, to trying to earn money for our family, so I decided to get the word out for my hubby and I’s book cover design venture! We both have been part of the self-publishing world for years, my husband being an author and publisher for Coscom Entertainment, and now we’re offering our services to others for book design.

From our website:

“Book Covers For Less is the husband-and-wife team of A.P. and Roxanne Fuchs.

A.P. Fuchs has been involved in the publishing industry since 2003, when he released his first book, A Stranger Dead. In 2004, his company, Coscom Entertainment, published its first titles and it was then he began designing the book covers for the catalog as well as contributing to it with numerous novels of his own. Since then, as a publisher he’s published over 100 books, having designed the covers for nearly all of them. In 2010, he and and Roxanne launched a joint imprint called Torn Veil Books, which focused on Christian Romance. A.P. provides the cover design for some of the titles.

No stranger to art, he is also a comic book artist and animation school graduate. His webcomic, Axiom-man, is also available in print and A.P. handles all of the design for the series as well as the writing and drawing.

Roxanne Fuchs has been part of her husband’s publishing journey since the beginning, handling things behind-the-scenes like website design, book trailers, book cover design assistance, interior formatting assistance and more. Also a cartoonist–her webcomic, Fuzz Society, like her husband’s, is also available in print and she handles all the design aspects for it as well as writes and draws it–she brings years of art experience.

It is their hope that in an age where independent publishing is flourishing, they can bring their combined experience to the field and ensure other authors have book covers that are professionally designed.”

If you or someone you know needs a cover designer, or just wrote a book, why not check out our website and see what we have to offer you? We believe in putting out quality books and designing with the market in mind. As well, first-time customers receive 10% off their first order! *Bonus!* So along with our fair market pricing, (both for single covers and packages), you’re looking at great savings, and a great book cover! ^_~

I enjoy design, and have always wanted to be in this business, so this is a dream come true to be able to pursue it, and with my experience working in Adobe Photoshop, it’s even more fun for me! It’s such a blessing, and I hope to continue doing this for years to come.




Inspirational Sewing Book

Hi Everyone,

Once in a while, I’ll stop by my local library and flip through some books to take home, as well as let my kids pick out their favourites, to promote reading. They enjoy it, though I don’t always have time to look at much as they get bored waiting. I always hope that they will sit nicely at a table and flip through one of their chosen books, but it usually doesn’t last very long. Sigh… oh well, that’s part of being a mom I guess. ;p

Anyhoo, I just wanted to share that I recently read a book, which seems to have mixed reviews, but one that I enjoyed personally. It is called, “Subversive Seamster”, and it showcases many ideas for thrifting different clothing and turning them into your own personalized piece of clothing or home decor.

While some may not agree with the exact fabrics used or styles, what I find refreshing are the ideas presented – taking old stuff and making them new. I am getting the refashioning bug, and am fairly new to sewing so I’m enjoying teaching myself how to make new things. And this book has inspired me to look at the clothes I have and material on my shelf, and to look past what it currently is. I think for anyone learning how to sew creatively, this is a great book to get you thinking. It makes me feel like a kid again, looking at things in a new way; fresh, funky and creative. So I do not agree with half the reviews on Amazon, and as I like to say, I’m always open to trying things for myself, regardless what other people think. It’s a journey of self-discovery, and an exciting one, as I pursue new creative outlets and sewing projects!

And for those who are not looking into refashioning, there are also basic sewing tutorials in this book, great for newbies, along with complete instructions for making your own dressmaker’s dummy – your own body double using duct tape! I totally need to make one of these, with someone’s help of course. 🙂 I can’t wait to get started!

Happy Sewing!
