Closer to the Shelves…

A home for Mr.Easter pink titletesana flail jumpHELLO BLESSED AND DEAR BLOG READERS!  

Hope every one’s having an eventful month of March!  To be honest it’s passed by so quickly the only thing I remember is St. Paddy’s… or well, maybe I don’t…  Any who, this brings A HOME for Mr. EASTER  a little closer to book shelves and hopefully a little closer to you too. In the mean time I guess  I’ll get you all a little more acquainted with the book, its characters, and what on earth I was thinking when I made it… So where to begin…

where are weWhere indeed.  The setting in which  A Home for Mr. Easter takes place is purposefully pretty vague. I wanted to tell the story economically with just the right amount of information needed to understand the characters.  I didn’t feel that placing Tesana in a specific city was pertinent to her or anyone else’s character, not to say that I think it would have been a bad thing to do so, it just would have made Mr. Easter a different story…

(also does any one else see the smiley face in the rock in the picture above? Now that I see it I can’t stop looking at it).

 

Well that bit of insight was short lived, next time perhaps I’ll devote a post to the villains of Mr. Easter or maybe one to process… or maybe both!

Thanks again for all the glorious support!  If only I could award you with a freshly baked brownie every time you stopped by the blog … but I can’t… I’m still working on that technology.

  Hearts and Good Feelings to all!

On the cusp of a little march madness…

        So I woke up this morning ( afternoon), broke my fast like a champion (on 3 chocolate chunk brownies and 2 glasses of Twinnings) and looked over at the calender anticipating the day only  to spy-    ” my god…” I said as I slowly lowered my 4th brownie ” It’s March…”

                                                        wow 

         So I’ve come to the conclusion that I’ve either been unconsciously time traveling again or just incoherently busy… regardless where did February go!? But you know what this means: the time draws nigh for  “A Home for Mr.Easter”  to hit shelves in April!  I can’t say I’m not nervous but I am definitely excited too.  

    Well after having had that little realization it’s almost dinner time which means 4 more brownies (which I heard is the optimum method of fuel for some one in the midst of Finals week) and unfortunately this post will be cut a little short until next week when said curse (finals) has been lifted for spring break!  

Until then folks, stay healthy and happy and try avoid any madness march brings Example:

woods

I’ll be honest, I can’t think of anything more fun to draw then some one tromping through the woods… and as a result you’ll find many a panel of Tesana + crew doing just that.  Besides it being the perfect excuse to scribble trees and live vicariously through my characters (because lets face it, running around outside is so much more fun then sitting at a big dumb desk) it’s also a great device to visually express complete aimlessness and further establish that the characters are lost and out of their element.

Hello NBM!

A Home For Mr.Easter Fig. A1

So here I am, my first post about my first book and I’m paralyzed with enthusiasm so I guess I’ll attempt to break the ice with an introduction:

Hey NBM Bloggers and kindly readers I’m Brooke and there’s my up n’ coming book’s cover above (see Fig.A1) “A Home for Mr.Easter” that Terry’s been nice enough to publish. If you love unicorn’s, bunnies, deer, fruit roll-ups, riding horses and you’re not a 7 year old girl then this book was made with care just for you.

I look forward to posting and getting to know you all!
Three cheers for comics!!!

-Brooke!
