Coming summer 2017 from Penguin Random House...

HUGE news: I am thrilled to announce that I am currently making a creative journal for Penguin Random House!

Back in February of this year, one of the editors for Tarcher Perigree, an imprint of Penguin Random House, reached out to me about making an extended version of my current coloring book. She asked if I had any interest in adding a creative journal twist to it, which, of course, is a total dream project for me! After creating some sample pages and putting together a proposal, I accepted their offer this spring and am now spending my whole summer drawing monsters. (And if that's not living the dream, I'm not sure what is.)

The new book:

  • Is based on the topic of my current coloring book, You're Weird, and will have the same name
  • Will champion weirdness and celebrate oddballs everywhere!
  • Will have lists to fill out, exercises and activities, coloring pages, and writing prompts!
  • Is scheduled for initial publication in July of 2017

My current coloring book is only available until January, and then I have to pull it from Etsy and all stores that carry it. Make sure you snag a copy before then if you'd like one!

I simply can't express enough gratitude to Penguin and especially to my editor, for finding my little corner of the internet and reaching out. This is such a dream come true for me and I can't wait to share my work with the larger audience this opportunity brings!

Stay tuned for more updates along the way--in the meantime, I'll be over here merrily churning out pages! Hooray!!
