Description

Who doesn’t love coloring books? Adult coloring burst onto the market a few years ago and the books quickly grabbed the top-seller spots in publishing. And they have not gone away; devotees of this colorful hobby are still buying thousands of books every day. They’re also a standard practice in many therapy settings. Maybe it’s time to add coloring books to your creative business!

In this class I will walk you through the process and save you a few years of trial and error. How to develop your idea, how to make your pages sparkle, what customers are looking for in a book. Then I will take you step by step through the process of self-publishing your final book. Really, it’s all in here.

Hi, I’m Ronnie. I’m the author/illustrator of over 20 (and counting) best-selling coloring books for adults. I embraced this market early and have developed an enthusiastic and loyal audience for my Coloring Café series of books and journals. It’s been a lot of work, but I enjoyed every minute of it. Along the way I learned a few things, most of all how to produce a book that my customers enjoy.

So let’s get publishing!

Who this course is for:
  • Artists and Illustratrators who would like to self publish a coloring book for adults or children either for creative expression or to add to their creative business
