Hear ye!  Hear ye!  I published a book!  I came up with the idea for "Hairphabet" nearly two years ago while doodling out the alphabet one day.  "Why not make an alphabet of hairstyles?", younger Nicole asked herself.  I initially thought that the alphabet might make a good t-shirt design, but when Threadless turned me down I decided to think bigger.. why not a book?  I submitted the idea to a few publishers, but no one was interested in publishing it.  

About a year ago, I got hired to do some freelance work for a wonderful lady named Lauren who was starting up her own publishing company.  I pitched the idea for "Hairphabet" to her randomly one day and to my extreme elation and surprise she agreed to let me publish it!  It's so hard to believe in an idea or dream when no one else seems to.  It makes it hard to trust that you've got anything worthwhile in your hands.  Thanks so much to Paradisiac Publishing for giving me a shot and for reminding me that dreams can and do come true (cue Disney princess song).  I'm so grateful!Get your copy here!
