Crowdsourcing Mornings: Gangster Ass Barista

This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

Trinity used to live a life of crime, but now she makes ends meet by working as a barista in New York City.  The thing is, though, in New York City… well, making ends meet isn’t easy to do with a minimum wage job. Not to mention the fact that customers are beginning to get on Trinity’s nerves, and it’s becoming harder and harder to keep it together.  And now, Trinity’s past is calling and she finds out firsthand that just when she thought she was out… they pull her back in.  From the team that successfully Kickstarted Destiny NY, Clonsters, Modern Dread, Prison Witch, and Afterglow comes a brand new thriller that will keep you laughing while you’re on the edge of your seat.
GANGSTER ASS BARISTA is a 70-page graphic novel written by me (Pat Shand, writer/creator of Destiny NY, Afterglow, Breathless, Little Girl, Snap Flash Hustle and more) and illustrated by Renzo Rodriguez (Breathless, Hellchild). After teaming up on Black Mask’s hit horror comic Breathless, Renzo and I are back with this comedic, coffee-fueled crime thriller!  GANGSTER ASS BARISTA is a DESTINY NY spinoff, but you don’t have to have read that series to enjoy this! It stands alone as a brand new, character-driven adventure.

As of September 11th, this project has raised $9,200 of their $7,500 goal. This project has 10 days left to raise as much as it can. For a pledge of $10, you will get one digital book.  For a pledge of $20, you will get one paperback book.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to:
