Snowball Rabbit Blog Tour~Day 2~

Hullo, guys!  Welcome back to another day of a blog tour!  Today I (Amie) am in charge again, so you’ll just have to put up with me.  Before we get into the juicy meat of this post, let’s go over what you need to know.

You can buy Snowball and the Missing Apple HERE.  (This might be my favorite illustration in the whole book. ❤ )

WAIT!  Before we move on, I (not Snowball.  *glances in his direction*) am having a giveaway.  What am I giving away?

  • A copy of Snowball and the Missing Apple
  • A stuffed white rabbit.  (I’m sorry I couldn’t giveaway a real one.)
  • Two sheets of stickers-one puffy fruits-one silly succulents.

GUYS.  The succulent stickers ARE THE CUTEST.  I want to keep them!  So, go enter!

a Rafflecopter giveaway

*rubs hands together* Now for the fun part.  Oh, wait! Also, I’m doing a LIVE YouTube Q&A on Saturday.  I’ll announce the time tomorrow, but you don’t want to forget it, and you also want to ask those questions on MY blog for giveaway points. 😉

So…Now for the process.  It started out with getting Snowball.  Snowball was just a ball of fluff, and I loved him to pieces.  When he was about, oh, five months old, I decided that if I were ever to make a children’s picture book, it would be about him.

Baby Snowball. ❤

Well, that summer, a contest for a picture book came up, and the genre was mystery.  My mom had all sorts of ideas, but I said I was going to do one about Snowball and an apple.

The process started with me working pretty much every morning on an illustration.  I would sit next to Snowball, and turn on my music.  (Lawson Bates or the Bontragers, anyone?)

I started the illustrations, and then I ditched them and tried them again.  This time, I drew 18 of the illustrations, and sent them in for the contest.  Unfortunately, I did not win the contest, and so I thought I was done with it.  Fast forward to December.

A friend had been publishing short stories and stuff like crazy, and so I caught the publishing fever, and began thinking.  The Snowball book popped up in my mind, and so I decided to look into it.  I changed the original 18 illustrations to 34, and other than that, I just published the book.

So, now to the schedule…
