YA Author. Adverb Slayer. ZA Ready.

Molly Looby is the author of many young adult fiction novels. Her zombie novel ZA was published in 2016 by Molten Publishing.

Read the entire thing in one go. Couldn't put it down. So deep and heavy and heartbreaking, but light and full of innocence all at once.

Yeah. I tried accessing the UK site but it automatically converts it into the high Indian price. The thing here is even popular books take a year or so to come out in the market and one can many YA books only after it has been made into a movie or something like that.

Oh no! I just looked at the price and it's outrageous! It converts to way over the normal price. Sorry . . . And it's a shame because in the UK it seems to be on sale . . . is there no way to buy it from the UK site or does it not work?

Oh!I don't have Kindle and mostly I prefer buying books. And in India your books are really expensive.

But ZA is not. I'm thinking about bringing out a paperback version at some point next year though. I think you can get ZA on other devices other than Kindle but I'm not sure how to do that.
