2010 Jul 13 Gary Jacobs Hi All, I wanted to let you know that my humorous novel is available on Amazon.com in paperback and also in Kindle ebook format. The title is STILL LIFE WITH GENITALS (I'm not kidding. Wait till you see the cover art). I have two young children who hope to go to college. If I don't sell enough books, that may not be possible. And they could turn to drugs. And have to do home invasions to support their habits. And remember, I have your addresses. Best wishes, Gary
