Artists Are Cashing In On The Coloring Book Craze
Everything you need for a professional coloring book at a huge savings.
These days, it seems you can’t make it past the lobby of a Barnes & Noble without seeing an adult coloring book. The genre currently holds five of the top 10 spots on Amazon’s best-sellers list, and there are gatherings held across the country for women who want to unwind with a glass of wine and a box of Crayola.
Artist Jenean Morrison has sold more than 91,000 copies and pocketed nearly half a million dollars since summer 2012, when she released her first book, “Pattern + Design Coloring Book.” This year alone, she earned $329,000 in royalties from Amazon and launched international editions of her books in six countries. Even if she landed a contract with a major publishing house, Morrison says, “Once you self-publish, you never go back.”
You too can now cash in on ideas and artwork with an Adult Coloring book of your own. Empire Publishing makes it simple and easy.
Your book will be produced in print format at the standard 8.5″ x 11″ trim size using 50# white paper. This includes a full color gloss front and back cover. Your book will be distributed worldwide through Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
Interior must include a minimum of 25 pages (12 illustrations, because we make the back side of each page blank so that people can color with markers if they want to and not leak through to the other image on the backside of the page).

If you are unable to obtain the proper files for submission, we can scan your artwork for an additional $150.
