Colour Me Mindful Launch Day


Well, the day is finally here! Colour Me mindful Birds, Tropical and Underwater are now available to buy in stores across the United Kingdom. To celebrate this ‘Book Birthday’ I am running a Launch Event over on Facebook which includes fun things such as giveaways, behind the scenes images and auctions; but mostly it is just a place for us to gather and meet each other and, of course, share your beautiful colouring in!

One of the biggest events of the day that I am running is an eBay auction for an original page from Colour Me Mindful: Birds. This is one of my favourite pages from the book and it features a highly detailed owl. All proceeds from this auction – that’s 100% of the money – will be going to the Mind Charity, a charity and cause very close to my heart that offers support for those living with mental health problems.

So please, if you can take the time to visit the auction or simply Tweet it/Facebook it/blog about it, that would be wonderful. You can find the link here. The auction will be running for the next three days so there is plenty of time to take part.

Also, due to the HUGE popularity of my previous Rafflecopter Giveaway, I will be running a similar giveaway today. The difference is – EVERYONE who takes part will get a FREE digital download of an EXCLUSIVE colouring page! This colouring page is not featured in ANY of the Colour Me Mindful books but is based on the theme of Enchanted Creatures‘ which will be released in October. So just by entering the very simple giveaway below, you will be sent a FREE COLOURING PAGE!

Happy Book Birthday everyone! And happy colouring!

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!

Colour Me Mindful Book Series Announced


Colour Me Mindful Book Series Announced


I  am really happy to announce that I have been working with the lovely folks at Orion Publishing Group on a new series of colouring books for adults. These things have really taken off at the moment and it is wonderful to see the amount of beautiful books being brought out by some truly phenomenal artists. I have always been a huge lover of intricate line art, so this project is a dream come true for me. If you ever thought that colouring was therapeutic, drawing that much detail is double that for me. 

The first book, Colour Me Mindful: Tropical will focus on tropical scenes, ideal for wild bursts of vibrant colour.  You can expect intricate designs including tropical plants, fish, animals, birds and insects. I absolutely love what the guys at Orion have done with the cover. The colours are lovely and tranquil with a nice pop of colour from the parrot. If I am getting this excited at my editor’s digital colouring skills, imagine how excited I am to see what you make of my designs when the book is released in July!

The second book in the series is Colour Me Mindful: Birds and does exactly what it says on the tin. You can expect a cute and (if you have anything to do with it) colourful array of characters from garden birds to birds of prey, owls to humming birds, peacocks to kingfishers, all drawn in a unique and heavily detailed way which should encourage your imagination. I can’t wait to show you more soon.

Finally we have Colour Me Mindful: Underwater. This is probably the one I am most enjoying as I have always loved drawing underwater creatures (See Viceroy’s ‘The Deep’ or ‘Ocean’). As you can see from the cover, we will be delving back into the tropical waters again, but you will also see sea mammals and of course fresher waters too.

At only £4.99 each, these books are set to be incredibly affordable and you can even pre-order them on Amazon now. I really hope you like what I’ve shown you so far and can’t wait to show you more in the Summer when they are set to go on sale.
