Color Me Calm and Color Me Happy Are Here!

After over a year of working and waiting, I am proud to announce my first published books that came out simultaneously on October 27th.  They are coloring books for adults entitled "Color Me Calm" and "Color Me Happy," published by Race Point Publishing.  I authored the text and the content, with each book broken down into themed chapters of things that are commonly associated with calming people or boosting their mood.  Angela Porter did a fantastic job illustrating my artistic suggestions for each chapter to give everyone dozens of pictures to color.  They are great to use for yourself, for friends or family, or with your clients.  Even in pre-order, "Color Me Calm" has already made it as a #1 Bestseller on Amazon, and "Color Me Happy" is not far behind at #2.

Hi Heather! Thank you very much. Actually, the publishing company found me because of this blog, and thought I had the expertise to write the series they had in mind. We worked out all the details, and then I formulated the text and the artistic pattern suggestions for the books. I'm now working on book #3, and perhaps 2 more might follow after that one. So, I may not have the answer you are looking for in case you are interested in publishing yourself, since I was the one approached rather than doing the approaching. It was a pleasant surprise and an enlightening collaboration to go through this process. Feel free to message me if you need more details.
