Happy Thanksgiving from The Rainbow Pants!!

thanksgiving

The delicious aroma of homemade rolls, turkey and yummy pies fill our home, as we get ready for a very Happy Thanksgiving. We take a moment to be grateful for all that we have; including our health, family, and our fabulous memories of 2013.

I would like to say a huge Thank you to my amazing illustrator Lindsay Weirich aka The Frugal Crafter, who gave color and vision to The Rainbow Pants.

Thank you to all of the people who have supported The Rainbow Pants, by purchasing a book, attending events, and/or writing to me and telling me your favorite color pants.

My final Thank you is to the kids who have read, The Rainbow Pants, and have added to their book list.

I wish all of you a peaceful and wonderful Thanksgiving.

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!!

Book Signing at the Hampden Maine Children’s Day

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!!

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.
