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!!

I wanted to thank the Highland Pre-School for hosting a “Meet The Author” book reading and signing yesterday. Lindsay Weirich and I had so much fun meeting all the little ones and (their adults). It was a pleasure to read The Rainbow Pants and answer all of your questions from “What color was Peter’s Scaredy pants?” to “How did you decide on your illustrations?”.  Don’t forget The Rainbow Pants is hosting a contest where you can win a personalized signed book and school supplies!!! Have a Super Colorful Rainbow Pants Day!!
