TWIST now available for pre-order

The new book of photography and poetry from Antoinette and Peter will publish on April 27th in paperback, hardcover, and ebook. It’s currently available for pre-order wherever you buy books.

Awards are selected on literary merit, originality, impact, and aesthetics. Judges may also consider other factors such as commercial potential or diverse representation.

We’re thrilled that our debut book received such prestigious recognition in the field of independent publishing.

Author signing October 29, 2023

Peter and Antoinette will be signing books at Barnes & Noble in Walnut Creek, California on Sunday, October 29 from 2 to 4 p.m. Pacific time.

You may purchase a book on site or buy it in advance through the Barnes & Noble site to be delivered to your home. There will be limited inventory on site, so buying in advance is the safer option.

In addition to their book, together, the couple will also have an exclusive East Bay version of their 2024 calendar on hand, with new photos and poems to be included in the upcoming sequel to the book next year.

They will also have samples of book-related merchandise such as tote bags and tee shirts which may be ordered from the Gray Bear Publications shop.

Welcome to Gray Bear Publications

Gray Bear Publications, an imprint of Gray Bear Coaching LLC, is launching in January of 2023. As the publications arm of Gray Bear Coaching, it will serve three primary purposes:

  • Act as the imprint under which Peter, founder of Gray Bear Coaching, publishes his own work and the work of his creative partners.
  • Provide an imprint through which other coaches may publish their work, either in anthology or as their own books, ebooks, or inspirational works.
  • Provide a way for people who have inspiring, artistic, or wise things to say to get those things published.

Gray Bear Publications sits somewhere between a traditional publisher and a vanity press, somewhere between a freelance consultancy and a production house.

Our first book, together, is available now.

We are actively looking for our next project. Could it be yours?
