Local author, Niki Alling, of Ithaca, NY, has just released the first book in a series of Anti-Stress coloring books for adults titled; A Quiet Moment. Niki and her daughter, Bless K., have co-created their first adult coloring book together. Adult coloring books have become the latest craze, with many books topping the bestseller lists at Amazon, Barnes and Noble and more. Many people find that coloring is not only fun, it can relieve the stress of our busy lives.

Creating and designing books and gifts is something that Niki Alling has been doing for years. She has a series of 8 children’s books published, several designs and original poems on t-shirts and gifts as well.

When the opportunity arose for the mother-daughter team to work together publishing intricate adult coloring books, they couldn’t wait to get started. Plans are in the works for a few Holiday editions, as well as continuing their series of Anti-Stress coloring books, with a variety of full-page designs and circular mandalas.

A Quiet Moment, contains 25 unique designs and features an original poem, written by Niki Alling, in honor of the colorist.

A Quiet Moment, is available at Amazon and soon to be available at Barnes & Noble online and wherever books are sold. For more information, please visit:
