Colour Me Mindful Competition


COLOUR ME MINDFUL COMPETITION


I have recently received the complimentary ‘author’ (I love how it says I am an author in the introduction…) copies of my Colour Me Mindful books from Orion Publishing. They are absolutely beautiful! The team did an absolutely amazing job editing them and I love the travel-size-for-your-convenience dimensions of the books themselves, which are ideal for sticking in your hand luggage for a Summer Holiday, or keeping in your bag for when you fancy a cheeky doodle on the go.

I have really enjoyed following all the buzz that Orion are creating for the launch of these books in the UK on the 30th July (not long now!) and seeing all of the book bloggers and reviewers trying their hands at colouring them (you can see some samples here). And speaking of BUZZ (see what I did there), Colour Me Mindful: Underwater was even mentioned on Buzzfeed’s ’17 Colouring Books That Every Grown-Up Needs’, how amazing is that!

There is still chance for you to pre-order your copies from Amazon.co.uk and it seems that the hype has even extended to the next series of three books out in October!

Colour Me Mindful: Butterflies isn’t even finished yet and already it is generating enough pre-orders and clicks on Amazon that it is a #1 New Release! Before it’s even released! No pressure or anything! This is testament to the art department at Orion’s excellent job at creating a beautiful cover out of my artwork and I cannot thank them enough. Not to mention my editor Anna Valentine who commissioned me to work on the projects in the first place.

But, enough about the future books, let’s be mindful of the present and live in the now. The first three books haven’t even been released yet!

So here is your chance to get your hands on a copy of each: Colour Me Mindful: BirdsColour Me Mindful: Tropical and Colour Me Mindful: Underwater; each signed by myself; and an ORIGINAL PAGE from one of the books – and you get to choose which book!


HOW TO ENTER

The competition is hosted by Rafflecopter and as such is a Raffle! In order to enter the raffle, you simply have to follow the instructions in the box below. You can login using either Facebook or your email address and there are a number of different ways to enter.

The two mandatory fields are that you have to sign up to my Blog (scroll to the bottom of this page and you will find the form in the footer) and visit my author page on Amazon. Doing both of these things will give you 10 entries into the raffle! You will also unlock a number of other ways to get more entries into the raffle – all of them pretty simple things like tweeting or visiting a Facebook page.

So get entering! The competition runs until the 24th July and the winner will be announced via Twitter and Facebook (as well as on this blog). This means that you will get your copies of the book before it comes out in the UK (post allowing). Some international entrants will be in with the chance to win these books months before they come out in your country!

Thank you so much for entering and good luck!

True Colours


True Colours


This week saw the release of the Colour Me Mindful series of Adult Colouring Books by Orion Publishing, as review samples to Book Bloggers, Art Book Bloggers and generally awesome people on social media. Consequently I woke up to an awesome amount of tweets, Intsagram tags and mentions on July 6th with a lot of very excited colouring-in aficionados showing me their post and some of them even sharing what they had already done.

I haven’t actually seen the books myself yet, but from the response they seem to be getting from Twitter and Instagram, I am really happy with how they have come out. I am actually pretty excited to colour them myself when I receive my comp copies! Everyone seems to be having so much fun it would be a shame not to join in! (Plus, I REALLY wanted to colour them as I was working on them!)

It is a little bit surreal seeing so many people colouring in my work – and they haven’t even been released yet! (FYI they are still available for pre-order on Amazon and are due for release in the UK on July 30th and in the USA on August 25th – note that America refers to the series as ‘COLOR Me Mindful’) But the whole experience so far has been amazing fun and it is always interesting to see what colours people choose – especially from my perspective as I obviously had my own colours and patterns in mind as I was drawing them.

I have managed to collect a couple of different pages together thanks to the lovely folk on the #ColourMeMindful Hashtag on Twitter and I really can’t wait to see what everyone else comes up with! Each of these images are reproduced with the kind permission of the lovely people mentioned in the tweets below their pics. The header image of the physical books are also from @MamaMummyMum – Thank you all so much!

If you have links to your blog/Instagram/Twitter and would like to share your coloured pages from the Colour Me Mindful series, please comment below. I would love to see them and share them around. Don’t forget to leave your thoughts on the book on their Amazon Pages and Goodreads
