In early 2015 adult coloring books made a sudden and dramatic jump to the top of Amazon’s best seller’s list and they have stayed there, earning hundreds of thousands of dollars for both the artists and publishers. This success started a gold rush in the creation of new coloring books, in no small part aided by Amazon’s CreateSpace publishing on demand program. Unlike traditional book printers, CreateSpace allows artists and independent authors to publish books without fear of rejection, editorial control, or, most importantly, upfront costs.
This book is not for beginners who do not have any experience with computers or art. It is not a step by step guide where I hold your hand throughout the entire process. However, if you have a body of work, or are in the idea stage, and you would like to make a coloring book through CreateSpace, then you can use this book to learn best practices and avoid common pitfalls when creating a coloring book on CreateSpace.
