Here's his full statement:

"Many of my readers are creatives so I'm excited to include them in the storytelling process. Instead of being a gift that's simply bought and presented, Bait allows the giver or receiver to personalize the finished book. The illustrations will run the gamut from delightful to shocking. The artists are among my favorites in the world, and their works take these new stories — the best I've ever written — to a bold, new level. Bait will change, forever, what people expect from both story collections and coloring books."

Bait: Off-Color Stories for You to Color goes on sale this fall.
