Hollywood Screenwriter’s New Book Is Brimming With Comedy, Nostalgia

Kevin Jakubowski debuts first novel, ‘8-Bit Christmas’, this holiday season
LOS ANGELES - Nov. 1, 2013 - PRLog -- The holiday season is here, and Jake Doyle wants exactly what every other 9-year-old boy in the ‘80s has been begging their parents for – a brand new Nintendo Entertainment System. But everything goes awry when a little, yappy dog nearly ruins it all in Kevin Jakubowski’s (http://kevin-jakubowski.com/) hysterically nostalgic “8-Bit Christmas” (Nov. 1, 2013, DB Press).

New York Times bestselling author James Frey describes Jakubowski’s new book as “‘A Christmas Story’ for the Nintendo generation.’” “8-Bit Christmas” introduces readers to Jake, a young boy who has been pining over the latest and greatest video game system all year. But when a hyperactive pooch is crushed by a television, every parent for miles holds Nintendo responsible. It’s up to Jake to set things right, and let’s just say it’s an epic quest of Super Mario Bros. proportions.

“Jakubowski captures the late ‘80s Nintendo craze with hilarious precision,” raves Marnie O. Mamminga, author of “Return to Wake Robin.” “You won’t be able to put ‘8-Bit Christmas’ down.”

Jakubowski’s debut novel is endearing, entertaining and downright funny. It’s bound to find a spot on the Christmas wish lists of every pop-culture obsessed reader who grew up in the ‘80s.

“South Park” producer and “Out There” creator Ryan Quincy calls Jakubowski’s book a “charming, rollicking tale.”

Jakubowski is a film and television writer who recently finished working on the second season of Comedy Central’s hit series “Brickleberry.” He is best known for co-writing the comedy film “Assassination of a High School President” starring Bruce Willis. He has also written and co-written scripts for Paramount, Warner Brothers, Lionsgate, Sony and Fox. Jakubowski and his wife live in California where he is currently developing a new animated series for Nickelodeon.
