Gambling Comes in Many Levels in New Thriller, Jackpot!, Published by Outskirts Press

Gainesville, GA, November 29, 2010 --( Outskirts Press, Inc. has published Jackpot! by Robert Bruce Kennedy. The author's most recent book to date is a 5 x 8 paperback in the fiction thriller category and is available worldwide on book retailer websites such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Jackpot! is also available in its 6 x 9 hardback edition with jacket. The webpage at was launched simultaneously with the book's publication.

From Kennedy’s new thriller:

Mario's hand began to shake the joystick violently. The shaking grew in intensity as the virgin's paddle moved down to intercept the ball. Contact caused the ball to bounce back to her left towards Mario's sidewall and paddle. She squealed with girlishy glee.

Mario's body began to thrash about atop the stool. He exerted maximum effort to let go of the joystick but without success. A rush of sweat materialized. The lights on his machine began to flicker.

"I'm winning! I'm winning," squealed the vestal virgin with unbridled delight as she drove home the pong ball without noticing that Mario's paddle was remaining stationary and dormant. "See, I'm winning."

Another gyration of Mario's torso brought his hand that was still painfully grasping the joystick up against his chest and defibrillator. Both machines and he lost consciousness, simultaneously.

427 pages in length, Jackpot! is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the fiction thriller category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, Jackpot! meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $14.95 and $21.95 for the paperback and hardback editions respectively.
