    My Husband is Not a Rainbow

    I've been working on a book with its author for nearly five years. It's a grief book, only it's funny. And heartbreaking. And inspiring. And provoking. And uplifting. And moving. I illustrated the cover for it, and I also created five black and white illustrations for the interior that are meant to be colored by the reader (I suggest Prismacolor color pencils. They are the BEST!). I also served as the book's editor (and I'm still working on the Kindle edition as I type this). The book is by the HILARIOUS comedian and writer, Kelley Lynn who is writing the book under the name Kelley Lynn Shepherd. The journey of love, life, loss, pain, and empowerment that she goes through this book is so massively powerful.

    We had a really successful crowd funding campaign to finance the book. Kelley announced that the book was published and up for sale on her Facebook page in alive video on Friday night, and by Saturday evening, it became the #1 Best Selling Grief & Bereavement book on Amazon.com!!! This book is a great book for anyone who has lost a spouse or loved one. It's is a real and honestly written look at grief, and not full of platitudes like other books that Kelley found when she was looking for books to try to deal with the sudden death of her husband, Don Shepherd. I haven't lost a spouse, but this book was helpful for me in learning how to be more empathetic to others who are experiencing loss.

    While I was editing this book, my dog, Carter, died suddenly, and this book was a huge help in dealing with my own grief over that situation. In working on this book and experiencing Kelley's writing on grief, I've learned that the healthiest thing that you can do is acknowledge your loss and your feelings and keep talking about them, post them on your social media, EXPRESS THEM any way that you can and need to. Don't pay attention to anyone who thinks that you should "get over it." Their invalidation of your feelings is about their discomfort in dealing with harder parts of life.

    I am so very proud of this book and beyond honored to be a part of its creation. The Kindle edition is coming soon, but in the meantime, you can order a paperback copy on Amazon.com for only $25.95, which makes it eligible for free shipping. Click on the hyperlink text above, or just click on the picture of the cover to go to Amazon and order your copy now. And THANK YOU to everyone who has supported this book and its creation.
