The New Shipment of the ZIA Has Arrived!

Good news! The new shipment of my novel for pre-teens and teens–The Zoo of Impossible Animals–is here. This version is more or less the same as the original, minus some pesky typos. We also decided to go with a glossy cover this time rather than the matte finish. I like it. I hope you do, too. It brings out more of the color and details in artist Steve Feldman’s drawings.

The bad news: I’m completely out of old copies, so my short-lived, half-off promotion is done. The purchase price is now $11.75, plus shipping. Still a bargain, I hope!

If you haven’t bought your copy yet and would like to, please go to the Amazon website and purchase one (though it will be the original version for a while). Or if you’d like one of the new versions, you can purchase it here on my website.

If you’ve already read the ZIA and liked it, I’d appreciate it if you review it Amazon. Thank you to all those who have already done so.

Happy reading!
