Big Ash Big Lent

EB gets ashesme: How was your day EB did you go to church and get your ashes?
EB: What are you blind, man? Don’t you see me wearing this humongous cross on my forehead? I think the priest got carried away, you know the big tall one with the big hands. He just smeared it on.
me: Wow, that is a rather large cross on your forehead.
EB: Yeah, I guess he saw me coming, nice white rabbit, a perfect canvas for his ash fingerpainting.
me: It’s not fingerpainting EB. Do you know what it means?
EB: Yeah, it means that I will wearing this thing for a month, its so big. I hope it comes off without the doctor having to amputate.
me: Your exaggerating, you wont need your head amputated.
EB: I never exaggerate. The priest that this to me, I think he’s the one prone to exaggerating.
me: EB, the ashes are a reminder that we come from ash and when we die we will return to ash. It’s a reminder of our mortality.
EB: Yeah, but it’s also a reminder that I look ridiculous.
me: You’re just upset because you got the biggest set of ashes in the entire church.
EB: I’m looking forward to my bunny bath this evening.
me: So, Did you give anything up for Lent?
EB: Yeah, I’m giving up having ashes smeared on my forehead.
me: No, I’m serious, are you doing anything special for Lent?
EB: I’ll probably just try to be a better bunny.
me: How?
EB: Not let things upset me so easily and maybe spend less time watching Judge Judy.
me: You can also do something like helping others that are less fortunate. It’s not just about giving something up.
EB: Hmm, maybe you’re right. Do you need anything? Is there something I can help you with?
me: As a matter of fact there is.
EB: OK – spill it.
me: Well, I really could use help in spreading the word about my new book “A Rabbit’s Tale An Easter Story” so folks will find out about it and can then to to Amazon and get a copy.
EB: I’ll do my best to help spread the word, no problem. I’ll start a countdown tomorrow and remind my fans that pick up a copy.
me: Thanks EB, I’d never thought the Easter Bunny would be helping me get folks to read my book.
EB: Well, I did read it and it was pretty good.
me: I thought you hated it.
EB: No, I just hated that it wasn’t about me. But,  I’m over it. I’ll get started tomorrow with my campaign to help you. That will be what I do for Lent.
me: Thanks EB
EB: De nada.


A Rabbit’s Tale an Easter Story – Great Read for Lent

EB2  RabbitsTaleCover

Well, he finally did it. He published that crazy book, A Rabbit’s Tale an Easter Story. It is now available for Kindle at . The paper back will be available later this month.

This is a really good book to read during Lent. It’s fun and suspensful and is appropriate for all age levels. There are some laughs. The story begins as we meet Juan Arias as a kid. He has a bit of a rough time with a classmate. Later in life, things start to unravel as Juan has a bizzare accident with some funky side effects. As he is trying to get his life together, he finds himself in the middle of a struggle between good and evil as he tries to help a friend bring an evil, cunning, ego maniac to justice. It’s quite a page turner, as Juan comes to discover what Easter is really all about.

Pick up a copy on Amazon and tell your friends, family and your church. I think it’s a really good story and lends itself well to discussion, as we go through Lent and anticipate the Easter celebration.  I was a little dissapointed that Easter candy is not the main focus of the book, but this bunny gives it an enthusiastic thumbs up!
