Friday Five – Five Fun Things about The Adventures of Baby Jaimie

Friday is a good day for a laugh moment, so we asked our visiting author, Jaimie Hope to share some memorable moments that happened during the writing and/or publishing of her children’s book, The Adventures of Baby Jaimie. 

1, Originally when I was writing my Children’s book I intended for it to be an exclusive e-book. I was trying to get the book e-published in time for an event and needed to hurry. When I ordered my illustrations, I ordered black and white illustrations. I got the book published in time for my event and as I told each person about my latest release the first thing I got asked by every person was “Is this title going to be available in traditional book format.”

2. Since I got so many requests for a traditional book, I felt compelled to give the people what they wanted. That meant I had to color the illustrations myself. So, even though the book lists Alex Baranov as the illustrator I added the color to the colored editions myself.


3. I never liked to color as a child, and I still don’t.

4. I worked hard to finish all my illustrations in time to have a release by Black Friday, but I couldn’t finish all of them, so the colored editions don’t have as many illustrations as the original black and white Kindle edition.
5. After I went through all that work to release a rational book the only copies I sold were to myself.
