That's right. Fifty. Whole. Dollars. On Amazon. There, you can buy new colored pencils, new pencil cases, more coloring books *wink wink* or that completely random sparkly thing you've been eyeing for a while but have had no real reason to buy. (We've all got some of those, right?)

How do you enter to win, you might ask?

How to Enter to Win a Boat-Load of Money:

It's pretty simple! Leave a review for "Enchanted Kingdom: A Fairy-tale Coloring Book" on any of the websites where the book is sold. Simply plug the full title into the search bar of the store you visit, and locate our book (which may or may not require a little bit of scrolling). In case you have forgotten, it looks like this:

Please note, you CAN, yes, CAN COPY AND PASTE REVIEWS, meaning you can leave the same exact review on multiple websites.

Dude, you've already got this money in the bag.

Especially since we've also added a bonus entry - If at least one of your reviews includes images of your copy of Enchanted Kingdom (colored pages or not-colored pages) you can win a whole 5 extra bonus points! For those of you, like me, who have a hard time counting, that means 10 chances to win.

But wait, what if you've already reviewed the book, you ask? Well, congrats! You are ahead of the curve! Old reviews count just as much as new reviews! Simply include the link in the indicated field. (And yes, you CAN update that old review to include images to earn those 5 bonus points!)

To Record Your Reviews Follow These Steps:

1. Log into the Rafflecoptor app at the bottom of this post (it's safe!)
2. Leave a link to your review in each of the indicated fields. Note, you must leave a link to the review, not the review itself!
3. Rafflecoptor will choose a winner at Random at the end of the contest! (So in order to have a chance at the prize money, you must include links to reviews in the Rafflecoptor app!)

That's it!

Enchanted Kingdom: A Fairy-Tale Coloring Book

So, once upon a time, A. N. Gephart and I made a thing:

(hint, that's the thing)

Enchanted Kingdom: A Fairy-Tale Coloring Book, is one of those adult/relaxation coloring books that are kind of trending right now. So that kind of explains where I've been for the past year.

Tax evasion has nothing to do with it.

I'm pretty stoked about this thing. It's eighty - yus, eighty pages of fairytale themed art - and it's not just your traditional fairytales. Ashley and I also threw in some art from the classics, so like, Alice and Wonderland (and others!).

The idea of creating the book went something like this:

Ashley: Kim! You should totally create a coloring book!

Me: Ah haha. 

Ashley: You could theme it around fairytales.

Kim: *falls out of chair*

In case you can't tell, I've got a soft spot for fairtales (see above publications) - and most especially, Beauty and the Beast.

And by spot, I mean my whole soul.

Anyway, after convincing Ashley to join me in this crazy adventure, using her typography skills to add gorgeous quotes to the book (that you can COLOR!) the rest is a convulated story of sleepless nights and peculiar incidents, many of which I hope to expound on in the upcoming LAUNCH WEEK. If you dare, you can stay up to date with all my crazy antics via Twitter and Facebook.

Until then, if you reeeeeeeally dare, you can preordering the book from Barns and Noble, Amazon, Walmart, or Target!

Did I say "or"? I meant "and". ;)

And apparently it's in Australia too.

Re-Rise From the Dead

This blog is not dead.

This blog is a zombie.

It is now officially undead.

Where have I been for the past year, you may ask? Well, that's a facinating story. It involves me abruptly cutting my hair, moving, writing a book, and growing my hair long again. It does not involve tax evasion or the government.

Otherwise I would have grown a mustache.

I'm working on revamping this blog, cleaning it up, and planning to start posting again on Tuesday's. You ask, "Why Tuesday?" I say, "Whatsa matter with Tuesday?"

Argument won.
