About

Lazy-Ass Cats: A Coloring Book for Adults

$23,148

1,132

I love my cat Murph. But, let's face it. He's a lazy ass. I guess that's why I got another cat that acts just like him, but she's a girl. I just love 'em. I scratch their little feline faces after they've done nothing worthwhile all day. I top off their food bowl with expensive new kibble, even when there's plenty there. When I just want to lay on the couch at the end of the day, having battled toddler tantrums, endless errands, and freelance deadlines, I leave a spot on the cushy blanket, right on top of my tired legs, for the laziest members of our family.

My cats, along with yours, are the inspiration for the Lazy-Ass Cats coloring book. Featuring 25 make-you-smile coloring pages ready for your artistic touch, this book will make a hilarious gift for coloring enthusiasts, cat lovers . . . and even people who don't know yet that they like to color! It will feature single-sided pages on crisp, quality paper, and both vertical and horizontal designs so you don't get bored.

I have to admit that I often get stressed out by crazy-detailed coloring pages. I treat them like a chore that has to be done, rather than a blank canvas to be explored. That's why these designs are straight to the point, and not overly complicated. Use your own shading on these cute line drawings, add your own details, and draw in your own cats if you'd like.

Stretch Goals

And then . . .

And then...

Back this project and be among the first to own the original Lazy-Ass Cats coloring book! I'm so proud of this book, and I can't wait to share it with you in its first tangible form. A limited number of backers will go down in history with their name printed in the book's acknowledgments, so don't delay!

Risks and challenges

I've authored two nonfiction books through a traditional publisher, but this is my first foray into self-publishing. However, I've acted as a production editor on dozens of travel books, handling page count and deadlines while editing for content and style.

In order to meet the unique demands of fulfilling this project, I've researched the best printer for the coloring book, and have already consulted with my cover designer and book layout designer to address any issues before they pop up. If fulfillment becomes an issue, I am prepared to hire a local team to help me ship orders.

Those who know me can vouch for me professionally and personally. I don't say "yes" to a project unless I'm fully prepared to deliver. I'm a content creator, published author, and reliable project manager. You can back this project with confidence, knowing that rewards will be fulfilled in a timely manner, and the end result will be awesome.
