What other e-books do you have published?
In addition to "Streisand: Her Life," we have done "Grace: The Secret Lives of a Princess" and "Peter Lawford: The Man Who Kept the Secrets." Next up is "Monroe: Her Life in Pictures." My novel about Edgar Allan Poe, "Days When My Heart Was Volcanic," is also an eBook. The books are available in Amazon's Kindle Store, Barnes & Noble, iTunes and Kobo.
