Coloring Books Aren't Just For Children Anymore!

Move over romance novels and mystery books, and make room for the latest bestsellers – adult coloring books!  Yes, coloring books, but not exactly like the ones you had when you were a child. 

If you're an author and want to channel your inner artist, then create coloring books. According to the New York Post, these adult coloring books are selling like crazy. While  many color alone, some people have formed groups and meet weekly to color. Others sit with their friends or family members with their pencils, pens and markers to tackle the intricate patterns and pictures of animals, flowers and other designs to relax, relieve their stress, and just have fun. 

Coloring book may or may not have content which is why authors find these low- (or no-) content books easy to produce.

Johanna Basford, a British illustrator, is credited with making coloring popular amongst adults with her worldwide best-selling coloring book, Secret Garden. Ms. Basford said in an interview with Buzzfeed that a publishing company wanted to commission her for a "traditional" children's book. However, she pitched the idea of creating adult coloring books, but the editors needed some convincing. After sending them some of her ideas, "the editors were sold," she said. According to Buzzfeed, Secret Garden has sold more than 1 million copies and has been translated into 14 different languages. To read the entire article, click HERE.

There are several ways of creating coloring books or pages:

1. If you have a flair for illustration, then create your own black-and-white designs.

2. Turn photographs or clip art into black-and-white outlines by using free or paid photo editing software or apps such as Adobe Photoshop, Canva, Pixlr or GIMP. (Note: If you are using photographs that you do not own or you found them on the Internet, make sure you have permission to use them. The photos may be protected by copyrights.)

There are plenty of video tutorials on YouTube or webinars to help you get started producing coloring books pages – from beginners to advance.

So, if you're up for the challenge, then step out of your comfort zone and become an author of the latest trend – adult coloring books!
