Sabbatical. An Important Word For Professionals.

Hazel Grace Press has plans for the second half of 2021, but the team will need a sabbatical during the month of August to pull them off.

Between 2020 and 2021, the team pulled together a children’s book in ten months. That’s really fast in this industry, and Rachel and Buddy need a chance to regroup, rest a bit, and get ready for another burst of productivity.

The sabbatical is effective as of August 2nd, and will end on September 7th. Hazel Grace Press is fulfilling and will continue to fulfill orders during this time. The team will also keep listening to emails sent to the general inbox,, so contact is still welcome—though, response time might be a bit slower.

The very secret project (that we still can’t wait to reveal) will continue in development, and the team is still planning the next Hazel Grace Press book! They’re very excited about both the sabbatical and about what will come afterward.

Stay tuned for updates in early September. Now might be a really good time to sign up for the newsletter or subscribe to the blog, because Rachel and Buddy are projecting lots of exciting things to surface in those updates.

Also, please feel free to keep ordering copies of The Broken Paintbrush (or recommending that others order). As mentioned, the team is still gladly and promptly fulfilling orders.
