Not An Editor Nor A Publisher

Not an editor nor a publisher I may be.

But I love to create and think and process.

So I processed some of my thinks into something creative.

I hope you enjoy.

I don’t expect anyone to ‘buy’.  But I hope everyone clicks just to go to the site.  It was a fun project to work on.  I have been working on it for a very long time.  And it took a very long time because, like I said, I’m not a publisher nor an editor.    My use of “nor” may indicate the truth in that statement.  But, because I’m not an editor, I don’t really know.

I had fun with this.  When I didn’t think I would end up doing anything with it I did put some of it on this blog.

But there’s just as much unseen stuff.

I finished it for a very special reason.  But the only ones to ever know that will have it in their hands and see it in person.

When I Go

My Book

Thank you to everyone who ever encouraged me to do this.  I have been ‘doing’ this for a very long time and just couldn’t get it all pulled together until now.

  3. When I Go…it’s an intriguing title. I would like a little blurb about it!


    • Funny you ask. A little blurb was hard for me to write. This is what it says on the site: “Simple drawings and simple statements with a much deeper message. Or, taken at face value, just super sweet. Go, go and go. Your destination waits.”

      It’s about ‘going’, of course. Which can be a very simple and plain message about how we go while we live. I don’t want to add other meanings for others, but it does have a much deeper meaning for me, on a couple of levels. I’m intrigued to see what anyone else may get from it.

      Does this make sense?


  4. I will check it out when this snowbird goes home. I’m enjoying your drawings and musings, so I’m sure it will be an enjoyable book to savour.


  5. Colleen, that is just AWESOME! Congratulations! I hope you sell many many many! I love all your drawings and profound thoughts so I’m sure the book is WONDERFUL!
