    Hello,

    Thank you for putting my book, The Zarellians, on your list. I was surprised anyone was looking at it. Unfortunately, I am having problems with Amazon. If the problem does not clear up, the book is also available on Smashwords, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, and Apple Books. Right now there is a presale on Smashwords so if you wish to read the complete book before it officially comes out everywhere else, you can do so. Thank you again for putting my book on your website.

    Sincerely,

    Victoria Early
