What does Elisient say?
It was a pleasure collaborating with Chris Hammond. It was very easy to communicate with him, It is very clear that he loves what he does. I am using him again to illustrate another book.

What I do is pretty simple:
I help one author make one book
to share with one child.
It spreads from there.
What does Mfon say?
As a newbie, Chris showed me a lot of what I needed to finish the production of the children's picture book and assisted me in so many ways. He also was patient enough to explain the process, the illustrations, all the pertinent details and expectations I had. Thanks Chris for helping me with the production and publication of An Awesome You.

If we don't have fun making it,
how can we expect others
to have fun reading it?
Boomers & Late Bloomers
possess no shortage of material
- wit, wisdom, and kindness -
which are desperately needed.
So what are the barriers to publishing?
Patience ...to make a small step
on a long journey.
Humility ...to accept a little help
now and then.
Very often, I collaborate with
a grandmother (or great-grandmother)
with a bucket-list dream to write and publish. Usually, there is a special grandchild
for whom she wishes to dedicate her book.
What does Ashlyn say?
Chris, is beyond amazing. He has great communication skills and very understanding. I must say he also very easy to work with and has a great imagination. I am beyond pleased with our collaboration and couldn't have asked for a better partner!

How does it work?
The process is truly collaborative.
There are daily progress reviews and discussions.
The author's comments
are incorporated into the design
so the vision for the book
stays on track.
What does Anu say?
As a first time author, I found the perfect partner in Chris! He is a master of his technical craft with a great eye for visual storytelling. He wields these powers to bring characters & scenes to life in highly original ways. He also runs a terrific process, allowing plenty of room for creative collaboration while keeping things well organized and moving forward. Plus, as an author himself, Chris is well versed in the publishing process. I relied heavily on his practical advice every step of the way from selecting an optimal format to book submission to pricing. Can't recommend Chris highly enough!

A book can be a good companion
and even a best friend.
Friends help each other by caring enough
to find a tender way
to tell us the hard truth.
That's what books do.
That's what friends are for.
What does Shirley say?
I was a newbie to the self-publishing, Chris was amazing helping me through each step. When we got off the track, he led the project right back where it needed to in order of the completion date. Chris welcomes my voice on creating the characters for my book and got them right. Chris was wondrous to work with, and I would use him again for additional projects.

I call it 'personal publishing'
because a celebration-of-life book
comes from a deeper place.
is a careful re-balancing
of commercial versus personal.
What does Shannon say?
There is no amount of praise I can give Chris Hammond that will credit it for how amazing he is. I fully enjoyed working with him and feel.so blessed to have such an awesome illustrator. He was so helpful and worked with me for my book and illustrations. As a first time Author and self publishing I couldn't of asked for a better illustrator and look forward to continuing working with him with other projects. As well as continuing my series we just worked on. He's very amazing and easy to work with. He takes the time to work with you and that is important. He's very professional and I will and have recommended him to several authors looking for an illustrator. Thank you for all your awesome amazing hardwork.

What does Karen say?
Chris is the most talented book designer I have ever encountered. I have had the same story formatted by myself and by another professional. I did not embrace my book. So I decided to try again. Now that I have hired Chris, I can relax and embrace my beautiful book. He makes sharp decisions that add special touches to the book. It helped my story to pop out. I enjoyed working with Chris. He will take excellent care of you and whatever you are trying to publish. His rates are worth it because there is no doubt that you will come away with a superior product.

A picture book spreads
when kids, parents, teachers,
and many others in the literary community
begin to 'talk-it-up' (word-of-mouth).
In the 21st century, word-of-mouth
comes in the form of social media -
posts, views, likes, comments.
What does Julie say?
Chris was understanding and intuitive from the first time we discussed my project. He communicated clearly and was responsive to my feedback. He made the process much more comfortable and less overwhelming for a first-time author.
I knew that the illustrations would be necessary to bring this book to life. Chris made that happen by illustrating each character according to my vision. I’m glad I chose Chris for my illustrator. I hope his work and mine reach the audience they deserve.

What does Mary say?
Chris is a talented artist and designer. I appreciated how he introduced each aspect of this project to me with detail and an eagerness to deliver my intended message. He welcomed my many questions and made sure I had all the information I needed. I watched as words on a blank page came alive with the images he created. I recommend him highly, whether you are a first-time author or have published other books before. I look forward to working with him in the future.

A children's book can be a gift to a child
and also a gift to the author's child-within.
A celebration-of-life picture book
can be impactful for kids and adults.
As a notoriously patient, polite,
and reliable professional (with humor),
it will be my pleasure to collaborate with you!
Thanks! I will be in touch with you!
