Small Coloring Book - hippie styleAfter several years in print, Aisling D’Art’s small coloring book, Coloring, Hippie Style, has – once again – surged in popularity.

Relax. Find yourself in a gentler time, when peace and love guided the planet… and inspired the hippie movement.

This small coloring book (5 1/4″ x 8″) will take you back to the 1960s, when art was inspired by the Beatles’ music, posters by Peter Max, and all things Woodstock.

You can download a free sample coloring page at this link.

Featured Author

Jake Camden joins us as a new author writing in the horror sub-genre. His first book is Descent. It’s the prologue to his new series, The Amityville Diaries.

He’s followed-up with his second book, The Haunting of Obedience, a slightly campy ghost story for fans of 1960s’ horror movies.

Jake writes from his dorm room in Vermont, where he’s majoring in Environmental Science, and filling his electives with courses about writing and journalism.

In his spare time, he enjoys lacrosse, and he might spend too many late-night hours playing Fortnite.

He says that the accompanying photo looks like him, but it’s not actually him. (We understand his interest in privacy. But, to be honest, we thought the photo was Jake. He looks a lot like that model.)

Site News

We’re rebuilding this website. When we upgraded to a more powerful hosting account, we didn’t realize we’d also move to a new server. Glitches and an out-of-date backup (our fault) created the resulting issue. But, as we see it, thisĀ  gave us a chance to rethink our website and redesign it. That’s in progress right now.
