My name is Bookmaker Jake.

I wrote a novel called The Living City

It's about a super star theme of storybankers who built an ocean-going city that was freer and more full of life than any city on earth.

More than with bolts and beams, they built their city with a new kind of story the world had never seen.

The new story could do everything The Same Old Story could do, but the new story could be more. 

It could also be money.

And the fantastic, new source of wealth made the storybankers richer than Wall Street Tycoons...

This "webpage" is what storybankers from The Living City call a storybank account. It's my pioneering effort to show you that the great stories of our lives have not all been told. There IS at least one untamed city left on the map where civilization hasn't killed off all the tender gardeners, sea-fishing monsters, Yalp-drinking barbarians, and suds-busting super heroes... 

With that I welcome you to the world premiere of Bookmaker Jake's Storybank Account-
