Greetings, all you humans! It is I, Snowball Rabbit. I am Crazy A’s official mascot (look on side bar) and I was asked to write this post, since Amie seems to be rather busy at the moment. Amie is a peculiar human being that decides to take on a lot of stuff, and then realizes some of them she can’t continue doing. Of course, blogging is not something she will stop. She just needs a break, and so she begged me to stand in for her today.
To explain a bit about me, you can go to my page here, or I can tell you some about me. I am a rather handsome specimen of a rabbit, with the nicest ears you have ever seen. I am an English Spot, and I have only five grey spots, making me a bad show bunny. If only those judges knew what real English Spots are supposed to look like. *humph*
Oh, right. We have to get back on topic. Well, well, well. The notes that Amie gave me say that I’m supposed to make you hyper about her book, because a lot of you don’t remember the teasers she gave in November. Hey, I don’t remember that either. Oh, yeah, I was only a few weeks old. That makes sense.
*cough* Amie’s first book, Operation: Green Serpent is in the middle of hopefully the last extreme edit. She thinks she is smoothing out all of the hiccups, and is deep in considering different publishing methods. When she talks to me of it, she sometimes gets really stressed out. (She says I help reduce stress. Whatever does that mean?)
Well, she gave me some sneak-peaks to get you hooked. She also said you can learn more about the characters here.
“Benji, what did you do now?” Cam laughed as she walked over to help Benji. He was being pecked by three or four chickens, including the one he held in his hand. Benji grinned sheepishly at his sister.
“Uh, nothing. I was just trying to do what Dad told me.”
“I don’t think Dad told you to cause mayhem,” Cam responded, picking the birds up and stroking their white feathers. “Are you labeling them?” The Adamses bred chickens. Once the chicks were big enough to transport, they would go all over the neighboring states.
“Yes, I was trying to,” Benji sighed.
Uh, disgusting chickens. Why can’t we have some civilized animals in this book? Like perhaps a few rabbits?
The girls rode to the graveyard and let their ATV’s idle. Cassy leaned down to the earth and saw horse prints.
“He’s here somewhere,” she said, brushing the dirt with her fingers.
“Yeah, right behind you,” Cam said as a loud whoosh of air went onto Cassy’s neck.
“What?” she gasped, turning around and grasping Ruther’s halter. “You naughty boy! I thought I told you to stay in your pasture,” Cassy remonstrated. Ruther placidly continued to chew grass.
“Cassy, do you see those lights?” Cam’s voice was suddenly strained and scared.
“Where?” Cassy turned to look. Cassy wasn’t easily scared.
“Right there,” Cam gasped, pointing toward a bright light.
Why does it always have to be horses? Over grown lumps of muscle, I say! Why not small fluffy things with cute ears? Like me?
“Guys, I’m glad you all came,” Cassy began the meeting. Jonathan, Cam, Benji, and Lily all sat watching her. “We have a terrible problem right now, and you are all sitting there relaxed! We should be facing it head on! Keep going! Don’t grow faint hearted. We must be heroes! Every one of us, strong and courageous with fortitude and careful thought.
“We have someone threatening our freedom! Someone trespassing and doing harm! They should be punished!” Cassy banged her fist on her palm.
“Um, Cassy, I think you’re getting a little off topic,” Cam reminded.
“Oh, uh, yeah. Anyway, I was saying that someone has vandalized our graveyard. They should restore it to its former life of cheerfulness and vitality.”
“Cassy, a graveyard being cheerful and vital is an oxymoron,” Jonathan objected.
“Oh, never mind then.”
Am I supposed to laugh? Again, where are the bunnies! What kind of disgrace is this? There are supposed to be rabbits all over this book! Instead there are humans!
The children looked at each other. Now, it seemed almost silly to ask, but Cassy wasn’t easily daunted.
“Jonathan was going to ask,” Cassy smiled, looking up at her older brother.
“All right, son, ask away,” Mr. Adams commanded. Jonathan looked up and said,
“We were wondering if we could sleep near the graveyard. Then, if we see any lights we’ll know something’s wrong.”
“You know, that’s not a bad idea. What do you think, Susan?” Mr. Adams turned to his wife.
Mrs. Adams smiled at her children as she said, “I don’t think that’s a bad idea. Let the children camp outside if they want.”
Mutiny! Raid Amie’s cabin! I declare WAR! How could she be so callous as to not put me in this book? I thought I was her favorite creature ever!
Well, there you had it folks. Some sneak peaks of Amie’s book. She’s not exactly sure when it will be published, or where, but she is in the middle of processing it all. Hopefully it will be sooner than it looks at the present.
Snowball Rabbit is the pet of Amie. He is known for his friendly licks, love of hopping, and devouring apples at frightening rate. He is a very handsome and patriotic rabbit. An Uncle Sam in the rabbit world. (And he wants you! Just kidding 😂)
