starbucking, the book

This page contains first draft versions of the chapters of my Starbucking book that I have completed so far. I am roughly halfway finished, and I have posted these drafts in the hopes of attracing the attention of an agent and/or publisher interested in guiding my book to publication. I prefer not to self-publish in large part because I feel that the final product could be much stronger with the assistance of a professional editor who can identify the weakness that I suspect exist, like length, structure, tone, and consistency of style. I also feel like a good agent or publishing PR department could leverage the popularity of the underlying subject matter, Starbucks, to ensure that the book reaches the widest audience and possibly even turn the book into a film or series.
