COVERT COFFEE thriller oil painting book cover art. View the book trailer & sample chapters.
Update: I'm funded! I will hold true to my promise to video the painting progress from blank canvas to finished book cover. I'll also update with photos of myself shopping for painting supplies, putting the book together, etc. Thank you for joining me on this adventure. I plan to have fun with the whole experience and I hope you will too!
The above painting is what I'm wrapping up now (not yet finished, but closer than it was when making the project video), for the "Touched by War" exhibit. It is not related to the COVERT COFFEE project, but is a painting sample for you to see my art. I will begin the COVERT COFFEE project after I receive my kickstarter funds and purchase the canvas, new paints, and new brushes (I am so destructive with brushes and have to buy them frequently!). As described in my project video, the subject of the COVERT COFFEE project is a coffee cup, blood, and a woman's head of hair (not the silly image of the "horror coffee" in the book trailer, that's just for comedy!).
"Hilarious & Revolting" Book Trailer for COVERT COFFEE is in the Updates section (please click Updates tab and scroll down) - reminder, this is not how the painting will look, see above.
COVERT COFFEE sampler is also in the Updates section. Read the first two chapters & get HOOKED! COVERT COFFEE is book #5 of the SWmysteries.
More information: I expect this painting to be completed in July. So why did I put the estimated delivery date as "September" for all of the backer rewards? September is the public release date for COVERT COFFEE and the guarantee (as close as possible to a guarantee anyway) of having books in hand. However, I am likely to get my hands on pre-release copies before the public launch. I will keep all backers informed. Items like prints of the painting could be sent out as early as July because those rewards involve the painting itself and don't rely on the book being formatted for print and e-book.
If I exceed funding I can use the funds to order more books, and/or hire a publicist to help me get my work out there (something I really wish I could do!). I will update frequently on the project to let everyone know what's going on. More rewards may be added if funding takes off in a delightfully surprising way.
Have a question? If the info above doesn't help, you can ask the project creator directly.
