The Rainbow Pants is on its Second Printing

The rainbow pants release

I am so very grateful to everyone who has supported my first children’s book, The Rainbow Pants. It has done so well we have just received our second printing. I did not think that anything could beat the feeling of getting my first box of books, that was until I received my box of “second printing” books. The local Key Bank in Brewer, Maine has chosen to have The Rainbow Pants be their “business of the month” and it is prominently displayed in their lobby, (pictures to come). I never could have predicted how well people truly enjoyed the story of Peter T. Peacock and his pants.

I just want to say a huge Thank you to my amazing illustrator:

Lindsay Weirich aka: The Frugal Crafter & to all of you who have read and shared The Rainbow Pants with others.

I am grateful & blessed!!

The Rainbow Pants is in The MAP Fall/Winter Catalog

Fall catalog

I am very excited to announce that The Rainbow Pants is in the MAP (Maine Authors Publishing) Fall/Winter Catalog. What is that, you might ask? Well that is how book stores, schools, libraries, and individuals can purchase some amazing books.

At the Maine Author’s Publishing they put out two catalogs a year. You can find The Rainbow Pants on page 15 with a great write up about the book, author Kelly Brooks-Bay and illustrator Lindsay Weirich.

Still feels surreal to think one of my books is actually in print and in the hands of readers everywhere.  Thank you to everyone who have supported me along the way and here’s to The Rainbow Pants getting into bookstores across the world!!

Can’t believe it’s Back to School time already!!

crayons

Is it me or does it seem like our summer speeds up after the Fourth of July? Well here at The Rainbow Pants, back to school shopping is already underway. While picking out their boxes of crayons, it was one of my son’s who said  “The Rainbow Pants, is a perfect book for going back to school”. I have to agree, a great book about the first day of school and the ever important question of “what will you wear”?

Why not add The Rainbow Pants book to your back to school list.

You can get a copy of The Rainbow Pants from the publisher

Maine Authors Publisher:  HERE

or at Amazon HERE

and Don’t forget The Rainbow Pants is on Facebook!!
