Kero Audio Promo

I’ve owned birds, cats, chinchillas, degus, dogs, fish, gerbils, guinea pigs, hamsters, rabbits, and rats. Each one has a special place in my heart. But – though I never intended to play favourites – one little dog touched my heart in a way none of the others managed to.

His name was Kero, and he was a West Highland White Terrier.

Well, his name was actually Castellan Keroberous, but that’s quite a mouthful, so we usually just called him Kero. Since it was a mouthful even for us, I figured it would be even more of one for a child, so made sure to just use his name as Kero when I wrote the seven book series of children’s books in which Kero is the main character.

My “Kero’s World” books have been in eBook and paperback for a while, and now they’re also available in audio, thanks to the skills of narrator Giles Miller.

I’m very pleased with the job Giles has done in bringing Kero’s stories to life. I hope, if you buy the audiobooks, that you’re as pleased with them as I am, and that you enjoy the listening experience.

Regardless of the format you’d prefer, if you’d like to grab copies and share in Kero’s stories, here are the main places where you can buy the books:

“How To Trust Your Human”, by Victoria Zigler – Book Spotlight

Title: How To trust Your Human
Author: Victoria Zigler
Genres: Children’s Stories – Animals / Children’s Stories – Social Issues – Death And Dying
Release date: July 3rd 2017

Synopsis:
“Losing a sibling is hard. Losing three of them is even harder. Repairing a broken bond of trust is harder still.

After his three brothers disappeared, one after another, gone to a mysterious place known only as The Rainbow Bridge, Buddy the degu is all alone in his cage.

Confused and frightened, he knows only one thing for certain: he last saw his brothers in the hands of the human caretaker.

That knowledge breaks the bond of trust forged between Buddy and his human in the years since he was a pup, and leaves him convinced that letting her get her hands on him will mean he disappears too.

Somehow, she has to convince him he’s wrong, and earn back his trust.

Based on actual events that took place in the life of one of the author’s own degus, and told from the point of view of a degu, this is the story of how patience and love taught a confused and terrified rodent how to trust again.”

Victoria Zigler, Books Available In Paperback

09f242d3toriz

I am pleased to publish the below announcement by my friend, author Victoria (Tori) Zigler:

For those who don’t know, I write poetry, as well as books for children of various ages.

Back in 2012, I started publishing my books in multiple eBook formats. Then, in early 2015, I decided it was way past time I started making my books available in paperback for those who still prefer physical copies of books.

Now, more than a year later, I’m pleased to be able to report that I’m all caught up with my backlist, and every book of mine for which the publication date has been and gone, is now available not just in multiple eBook formats, but also in paperback too.

The eBooks are available via Smashwords, Barnes & Noble, Apple iBooks, Kobo, and the other places Smashwords distributes to. Plus, if your local library supports eBook lending, you may be able to find my books as eBooks there (or request that your library orders copies).

The paperbacks are available via CreateSpace, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and any other places CreateSpace books are available from, including any libraries happy to order copies.

Future titles will also be made available as paperbacks as well as eBooks.
