Please fund my first book on tea, with illustrations by John Cox.
Tea Book Sketches - Ideas And Notions About The Second Most Popular Beverage In The World.
The format and style will be a mini coffee-table (pun intended) book. Handy dandy reading pleasure, during your private tea ceremony. And at the same time a perfect gift to the coffee drinker...
The goal is to publish the book on December 16, 2017, as a tribute to the Boston Tea Party (December 16, 1773). [Editor's note on December 28, 2017: The first book on (black) tea is planned to be published around the Lunar New Year of the (Brown) Earth Dog, in 2018. For more information about the book and my self-publishing journey, please go to: www.TeaBookSketches.com.]
