Synopsis

Animated Book Trailer: http://youtu.be/eiPDRTCGikQ

The trailer contains voices right from the audiobook. Read by the author, it contains over 40 voices actors for all the different characters. It's not an audio drama, there are no sound effects or ambient backgrounds.

The Blurb: Would you like a couch with that painting?

Obscurity is a way of life for Gavin Vonn Getch, a painter who works at a frame shop in a small New England town. His life changes when billionaire Gary Eastman enters his shop and becomes the ultimate patron: a lifetime commission for all his work in exchange for a crap-load of money.

Some of his artist buddies envy him and others think he’s sold out. Curious as to where his paintings are being displayed, he makes a trip to the DLC headquarters, where a shocking discovery forces him to reevaluate his deal with Eastman and his identity as an artist.

The Plea: This first book is on me! I'm desperate to find an audience so please give me a follow if you want to read or hear more from me.
