Creative Gems Volume 1 is out now!

About 4 months ago, I posted a silly idea of making a book together.
I asked people to write a short story or poem based on any of the drawings on my website.

It quickly became clear that more than just a few were interested.
More than 20 authors have submitted their story and I am so happy to announce that from today on, the collection is stories accompanied with colorful drawings are available on Amazon either as ebook, paperback or hardcover!

It look amazing and I can’t thank everyone enough for sharing their talent and support with me!

  4. It was an amazing experience, glad Go Henry Go has a place among your fantastic art work, here’s hoping this book finds its way in being an instant classic for decades to come.


  5. Andrea, you have my permission to use my story on your YouTube channel. I’m just glad to have contribute!


  6. I’ll make sure to start plugging the book so you can get some sales off it too, Andrea.

    Don’t worry about giving payment to me, being on the book is enough. Just remember this small author when you become famous.


  7. Holy hell! I leave for a couple of days and this happens?! I will be in touch in the next couple of days and definitely getting a couple of copies!


  8. Reblogged this on Escape to the High Country… and commented:
    It was such joy to be part of this fun project with so many talented bloggers sharing their creative gifts. Andrea’s illustrations were the starting point for the children’s poems and short stories that were contributed. I came up with a story about cats shopping on-line would you believe! Her blog post below will steer you in the direction of how to obtain your own copy. Happy reading!


  9. Just got a chance to write a blog post too and linked to your blogs a few time too…. so hopefully we’ll get noticed 😉


  10. My daughter and I are so happy to have been a part of this! We had so much fun working on this and hope we can be part of #2! I have a post scheduled for tomorrow to share it with my people. This is our first publish ever so we are extra excited! Thank you🤗💚


  11. Oops, sent the comment too fast.

    But yes please, that would be so amazing!
    There is of course the page with all the drawings, but you can always make suggestion if you have a certain character in mind or topic.
    Or even combine two drawings!

    I am happy to give anything a try! 🙂🙂


  12. Can we have #32? The one with the girl in the yellow rain coat with all of the animals in the rain! The girl reminds me a little bit of my daughter when she was younger and the small black dog looks like our dog and she loves loves loves animals! It would be perfect if it’s not taken.


  13. Way to go Andrea. 🥳 congrats 🎊 🎈 And thanks for the chance to collaborate. I had fun on this project with you!!! Good luck with the next booj.
