The Land of Doom/Picture Book Marathon 2/28


Here is Picture Book Marathon Book #2:



"Brick Town Cop"

A crime story set in a (not-quite-LEGO-wink-wink) brick built town. A Class 3 "Brickocide" has been committed, and the Brick Town Cop is on the trail. He has to deal with many of the unsavory citizens of Brick Town, Pirates, Ninjas, Aliens, etc. in search of the perpetrator.

Yes, this story is entirely fueled by my desire to purchase LEGO for work purposes. I don't know what would be more difficult; building the entire book out of bricks and photographing it (ala JACK vs. the Vikings) or illustrating the book and PAINTING all those brick scenes. Phew, I get tired thinking about either option.

Oh my gosh, Nathan, I love you. I am bookmarking all of these, seriously.

(And I love the LEGO-non-LEGO "brick" idea). ;)

I don't know there Skippy, a brickocide seems a bit dark for the picture book set. Maybe this one should be a graphic novel, then you could draw all those brick separations in very, very tiny pictures.

Nathan said...

Ah, but DaNae, you don't know what "Brickocide" is.

In my house, it's when a kid uses their teeth to separate bricks. I will not tolerate any form of Brickocide.

Can I preorder? And Nate, little Miss Naive here, but you've already published two of your own manuscripts, doesn't that keep you out of the fearful valley? Can't you just call the publisher and say, here comes another one?
