Spring time Showers bring Summer time Rainbows

rain

Is your spring a bit wet? Here in Maine we have seen our fair share of rain. One of my most asked questions, when I do a book reading at a school is: “What about blue?” If you have read The Rainbow Pants, you know that Peter chooses his pants based on his feelings. I leave out certain colors so that the reader can answer that blue and purple (or indigo) question. I think with all of our rain today I would wear blue in honor of our spring raindrops. But always remember without rain we couldn’t have Rainbows!!! So let the water fall on your face and answer back with a “rainbow smile”.

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!!

Congratulations to William and Kate and your new baby…The Rainbow Pants would be a great book for the New Prince!!

RP book tower

So I admit I love the whole Royal Family thing. I think maybe it is because the manuscript I am working on, is all about Kings and Queens.  The time of knights protecting castles from dragons and evil witches.

I wish the Duke and Duchess William and Kate all the best with their new baby prince.

Just enjoy your time together and remember it is never to early to read bedtime stories.

The Rainbow Pants would be a great addition to your collection!!
