Birds of Maine Coloring Book for All Ages Released by Maine Author

$5.95 on Amazon.com and other online bookstores

I was inspired to create the coloring pages for the Birds of Maine Coloring Book as I was born and grew up in Maine. I love Maine and have seen many a snowy day where the birds are brilliantly silhouetted with their color on the sparkling winter scenery. And I thought there was no way to better honor my cherished state than to create a coloring book with illustrations to color of birds you can find in your own backyard in Maine. Birds were a perfect fit for my Practice Your Way to Perfect coloring book collection. Child, teen or adult this book is for everyone! With five designs and five pages of each, you can color page one of the design, and if you go outside of the lines, or decide on a different color; you have four more additional pages of the same design to color. Keep coloring until you practice your way to perfect! This book also includes blank Draw Your Own Art pages to practice drawing your art; Practice Your Way to Perfect: Birds of Maine Coloring Book will bring relaxing moments and joy to all those who turn the pages of this book. 

 Coloring – is an excellent way to relax and de-stress yourself!
  • 8 x10 single-sided non-perforated pages
  • Draw your own art pages
  • Bird designs suitable for framing
 “Color Away Stress through Creativity!”

Great Concept and Illustrations (Gorgeous)
I received this coloring book for an honest review. I love Virginia Wright’s unique concept of “Practice Your Way to Perfect”. I love Virginia’s illustrations.

Soledad California’s Little Free Library – TAKE A BOOK ~ RETURN A BOOK Excellent Program

Kim from Little Free Library (Charter #35502) located in Soledad, CA contacted me asking if I would donate a book to Soledad’s Little Free Library. She told me that they have recently started spotlighting authors through “Author Of The Week” where they feature info about the author and they display the info on their bulletin board next to their library. They also feature the author and book on their Facebook page.

I wondered how the program worked and asked if she could give me a little history about the free library? How long it has existed. How many people check books in and out. Do they have a sign-out sheet, etc., Kim told me that their Little Free Library has been up and running since January 2016. The first year they successfully put 556 books into the hands of happy readers, from kids to adults! They are the only Little Free Library in their town, located near three schools (two elementary schools & a middle school), so they get quite a few kids and their parents walking by. They also get visitors who drive from different areas of the town just to get a book. The motto for Little Free Library is “TAKE A BOOK – LEAVE A BOOK!”

Some pass the book on to a brother, sister, friend, etc. They don’t use a sign-out sheet; they just encourage people to read!

I have a package with six books all ready to send out to Soledad’s Little Free Library. If other author’s want to donate books, please contact Kim Binsacca on her Facebook page Facebook.com/kimslittlefreelibrary

Thanks, Kim for contacting me. I’m elated to donate to such an excellent reading program…can’t wait to get my books in the hands of “happy readers!”

Butterfly Watercolour by Charu of a Monarch Butterfly by Nature Photographer Virginia Wright

Watercolour by Charu Jain of Virginia Wright’s Monarch Butterfly on Joe-Pye Weed Photograph.

A week or so ago, I posted a Monarch butterfly photograph that I took in my bee and butterfly garden. Many of you know that one of my favorite things to do besides writing is photographing nature and foodstuff.  Well, on Facebook,  I posted this beautiful Monarch butterfly feasting on Joe-Pye Weed (below), and Charu Jain of Watercolour by Charu,  from Bangalore, India, messaged me that she would like to paint my photograph. I told her I didn’t mind, but if she used it anywhere, that I would like to be given credit for my photograph. :-) Charu agreed, and quickly got to work and created a beautiful watercolor of my butterfly. We both captured a moment in time from that one photograph. As my photograph inspired Charu to do her watercolor, my photographs inspire me in my illustrations, too. As a matter of fact, I illustrated two butterfly coloring books (go figure). Practice Your Way to Perfect: Butterflies Coloring Book and Practice Your Way to Perfect: Butterflies Coloring Book 2. I’ve always loved watching butterflies flitting here and there with their beautiful colors, it seemed fitting for me to illustrate a coloring book with butterflies. :-) You can find more of my nature photography on Instagram.  Charu is the illustrator of Ten Zany Birds by Sherry Ellis. You can learn more about Charu here. It touched my heart to have such a talented artist want to paint “my” photography. Beautiful job Charu! Thank you for wanting to paint my butterfly. Xo

Hugs,
-Virginia Wright

ANNOUNCEMENT: Children’s Book Promotion Party, October 11th, 2017

I’m excited to be part of the October 11th Children’s Book Promotion. On party day, there will be a lot of discounted and free books available from various authors here. I will introduce everyone to Timothy the Christmas Mouse by way of a “FREE” eBook which you will be able to get here on the day of the event (https://www.amazon.com/Timothy-Christmas-Mouse-Virginia-Wright-ebook/dp/B01858V55M). Timothy the Christmas Mouse is now available in paperback and due to popular demand, an adorably illustrated coloring book companion was created. I hope you like the eBook so much you want to buy the storybook in paperback and the coloring book. I want to make note that the eBook does not do the paperback justice. The paperback is so adorable…it is one of my favorite writing and illustration projects that I have done to date. The coloring book makes for a great Christmas Eve coloring book for kids. The story is a nice children’s story before going off to sleep in anticipation of Christmas morning.
:-) See you at the party!
