Re-Run: Snowy Valentine Children's Book

For the start of 2016 I need to put my Blog on hiatus. This is due to a combination of reasons: not having material I can currently share to post about, being behind on important projects & unable to dedicate the time to develop new posts, and some personal/life things going on with the health of my Mother.

I will return to regular posting with process, tutorials, insights, advice, behind the scenes, stuff from the vault, and more before summer or hopefully sooner.
In the meantime, over the course of the hiatus, I've decided that each week in place of a new post, I'd link back to one of my favorite posts over the past 9 years of me updating this blog. Think of it as a greatest hits re-run on something you may have missed in that time. (And you can visit past posts anytime using the Blog Index: http://davidpetersen.blogspot.com/2013/12/blog-index.html)

This week:
Snowy Valentine

In 2011 Harper Collins published my first children's book "Snowy Valentine". The book started life as a Valentine's day gift for Julia back in 2003 and developed into something in the same spirit but very different for a publication. Below are links to a 3 part blogpost showing the development, process, and details about the book.

Part 3: Color, Texture, & Cover:
