Blog Book Tour for . . . Me and Paco!!

     Several of my talented friends will be interviewing me on their blogs this week asking all kinds of questions about the creation of my newest picture book, "Paco and the Giant Chile Plant ~ Paco y la planta de chile gigante." A few are even adding fantastic recipes. So, check 'em out as they go live this week (I'll update the links):

Monday: Kim Norman's Stone Stoop!
     Kim is the author of "Jack of all Tails" and shares a great recipe for Tasty Tortilla Snowflakes!!

Tuesday: Barbara Johansen Newman's Cat n' Jammers Studio. Barb wrote and illustrated "Tex & Sugar."

Wednesday: Janee Trasler's Art & Soul. Janee's latest book is "Ghost EAts It All!"

Thursday: Ruth McNally Barshaw, creator of "Ellie McDoodle: Have Pen, Will Travel!" (If you like "Diary of a Whimpy Kid," you'll love Ellie!)

Friday: Kerry Madden, author of "Jessie's Mountain," the thrid installment in her Maggie Valley trilogy (read about it here.)

Saturday: Sarah Dillard, illustrator of "Tightrope Poppy" and author/illustrator of the forthcoming "Perfectly Arugula!"

Thanks so much to my awesome friends, and I hope y'all enjoy reading!

I've left comments on your interviews - thanks for sharing more of you with us. You are pretty awesome. I need to share your interviews with another illustrator I know so she can get an idea of what the process is that other illustrators got through.

I haven't seen it asked yet and maybe you have covered this somewhere else, but how long a process is illustrating one book for you? Like from the time you get the ms to the time you turn it over to the publisher's design team, et cetera?

Just curious as to the overall process - see you in the postings - E :)

Hi elysabeth,
Thanks for your interest.
I've had anywhere from 2 1/2 months to a year to illustrate a picture book, obviously the quality is affected by the time I have. But I have decided my most comfortable window is about four to six months. Obviously, 2 1/2 months is just ridiculous and a year is actually too long as my style tends to subtly evolve, meaning I end up having to update earlier pieces.
