In case anyone is wondering if my coloring book images in shades of grey - no pun intended! :) might have a problem being colored and covered by pencils and gel pens etc. Here is a snapshot of one I was coloring to make sure pencils did cover the shades of grey! I took this pic as I began it so you can see it in process and see that the pencils cover very well! I only went forward with creating the coloring book once I saw they would work! And when you compare this one with the photo on the left up above you will see that I also lightened it for the book. The dark edges you see here are a lot lighter in the book.
My images are different from what you usually find in coloring books. Why? It's because they were made from full color images of my original oil paintings of the Heart. As you see above on the far left that heart was colored by a friend of mine - it's the first one inside the book - and I used her coloring version on the cover. I was blown away by the beautiful image she created!
Here she colored the same heart but with lighter colors around the outside so you see again that pencils color very nicely and completely.
Here is my original oil painting as I painted it. But as you see in the pic at the beginning of my post, even I didn't color the shades of grey version exactly.!You can, but as Coloristas you will be able to do as much as you want with them! Enjoy! And if you like please post pics of your coloring of the hearts on my page on Amazon. I'd love to see them! Just type in my name - Jacqueline Stigman or The Power of the Heart Coloring Book -
Then post your pic in the Customer Reviews area.
In the mean time, Have Fun Coloring!
Merry Christmas & The Happiest New Year to All! Wishing You Joy, Peace, Love, Health, & All Good Fortune In 2017 & Always! - Jacqueline
Congratulations Angela O. You won a Free Copy of The Power of the Heart Adult Coloring Book with Crimson Cover! Happy Coloring! These Giveaways are too much fun!
My first edition of my novel titled FROM DARKNESS & in 3 volumes is still showing as available when I have retired it because I am bringing out the revised and restored 2nd edition although with a new title and new cover. And entirely new edit. This is common among authors. The FRANKENSTEIN: TIME TRAVELER is the better book I feel and will be in one volume I believe late January.
Yet, Amazon states "Only a few copies left, order now!" That may be their inventory but not with my permission. But I can't stop them.
But what is driving me nuts right now and has been for some time is that The White Cover of my The Power of the Heart Adult Coloring book is shown once you type in my name > way down below the retired novels! One day the Emerald Green cover shows at top of my page, next day the Crimson. Never the White.
I have been working 6+ hours with agents at Create Space that publishes the books and in another few days the White may be shown. But why aren't all three shown? Because of Amazon's desire to mix it up. How fun for the automated program! So frustrating for me and I feel not fair to customers.
I applied to sell online with Walmart but don't know when I will hear back if accepted.
For now best way to order is on My Amazon Store - right here, see tab above.
Deep breath. Now back to FRANKENSTEIN TIME TRAVELER which you can pre-order the eReader version - on B&N, iTunes, and Kobo at great savings before the publication date. See the links over on the right under the new cover.
That's usually how writing is. But just for now, writing, editing, creating a new layout, it can be so much fun I have often thought, "This shouldn't be legal!" There is the fun. And I want to remember this moment because a writer can easily and so often crash. I could plummet in a second, I know, and probably will, yet again overcome by a huge wave of self doubt, but for now?
Working well revising and restoring FRANKENSTEIN:TIME TRAVELER.
And now must tear myself away for dinner!
why didn't I think of these colors sooner! Would anyone like a blue cover? Waiting for approval by Amazon. Here are 2 more Cover Color options Crimson & Green that will be available about Monday the 12th. I'm told if you order by the end of the week of the 12th they will safely be good to arrive before Christmas!
