I’ve been getting one question a lot recently: “Are you a big fat liar?”
To put this in context, they are not asking me whether I murdered a man or not (on that, I please the 5th). No, they are simply asking about the final page of The Stratford Zoo Presents Macbeth.
In case you don’t remember (or haven’t read it…for shame!), the final page features a peacock writing up a Coming Attractions billboard for the Stratford Zoo’s next performance: Romeo & Juliet.
Well, the answer can now be revealed. Behold! The cover for The Stratford Zoo Presents Romeo & Juliet. This lovely bit of eye-candy is due out in Sept. 2015. Personally, I can’t wait.
A lot of people don’t know this, but the author doesn’t actually get to see the finished art of a book until it comes out. And illustrator extraordinaire, Zack Giallongo, has been hitting it out of the park so far on this series. So I’m really excited to see what he has in store for this tale of romance and tragedy...romagedy?
Also, as long as I have you here, Xmas time is coming! So tell you ma, tell your pa, tell your friends back in Arkansas, that the Stratford Zoo series makes for an excellent Xmas gift, doorstop, or drinks coaster.
Stay tuned for more details about Romeo & Juliet. I’ll leak them here as soon as I get them.
