Hi Michelle,

Your book is very interesting to me but I don't know if we are useful to your project.

At The 8th Dimension Comic Studio, we are specialized in developing visual content for comic books, web contents, and game character IP development.

We can provide visual suggestions for illustrations in your book, poster or any promotional materials, or perhaps transforming your book into comic novel.

You can come to my bolg at to take a look at some of my drawings.

Best regards,

Hi folks,
I?ve recently written a book called ?My Cup of Tea?, which chronicles my journey from desk-bound management consultant to traveling dream-experimenter, across China and Bali.
And I thought it'd be a lot of fun to make a trailer for this book. If you?re a screenwriter, video editor, actor, director, or just someone who?s interested in getting involved, please contact me. (In your message, please indicate what you?re interested in doing.) This is not a paid project, but should be a lot of fun to work on. 
The finished product will be posted on YouTube. Everyone involved will receive credit for their work, and link to their website/blog/YouTube channel.
Book Synopsis:
In her mid-twenties, Michelle has done everything a modern Asian-Canadian woman was supposed to do ? degree from a good university, professional career, and the recent purchase of a home ? she was comfortable, her parents were proud. But instead of feeling happy and fulfilled, she felt lost and empty. If doctors were involved, they?d officially declare her in ?Quarter-Life Crisis?.
This fun and delightful book is the story of how she left all these outward marks of success behind, and of what she found in their place. Prompted by a phone-call from her 89-year old grandma from China, beckoning her to find a boyfriend, she set out to revisit the cultural richness of her roots, where tea and silk dazzle the palate and eyes, perspectives and traditions challenge the China she thought she knew, and the Chinese girl she thought she was. In her pursuit of happiness, she stumbles upon three distinctively different and wonderfully interesting Chinese men who are just as exciting and intriguing as the cultural backdrop that is modern China?
But it wasn?t until she sat on the beach of a beautiful tropical island in Bali, that she began to feel the magic of experimenting with one?s dream.
