My second book just came out :)

Yay! I just heard from Karen Syed at Echelon Press.

My second book is here!

I think the blurb on the cover changed, but I don't have the updated version, so I'll use the first proof I got.

Jon Gibbs - Barnums Revenge cover - compressed

Barnum’s Revenge is the sequel to Fur-Face featuring (now) 13-yr-old Bill Euston, and Snowy, a talking cat only he can hear.

Life's never dull when your best friend is a talking cat.

A month has passed since Bill Euston and Snowy (a talking cat only he can hear) exposed the illegal animal experiments taking place beneath the Adventure Safari zoo and theme park, where Bill's father works as chief veterinary surgeon.

When Bill's cousin, Luke, comes to stay, the family must pretend Snowy is a normal cat. Luke is a bully. From the moment he arrives, he sets out to make Bill's life a misery. Not content with taking over his bedroom, he picks on Bill at every opportunity, gets Snowy banished to the kitchen, and worst of all, charms his way into the affections of Carmen, Bill's only other teenage friend in the village.

To make matters worse, someone keeps letting animals out of their enclosures at Adventure Safari. If the sabotage continues, the park may have to close down, forcing the Euston family to give up their idyllic new life in the English countryside. In an effort to discover who's responsible, Dr. Euston enlists Bill and Snowy's help, but Snowy has his own problem, a fox with sharp teeth and a vicious temperament to match his name, Shredder.

I just ordered copies from Echelon Press for hand-selling at events. So far, it's only available on Create Space (, but it'll turn up on Amazon, and various e-book sites over the next few days.

A perfect end to a lousy (mostly due to everyone having the sickies) week.

I are a happy writer!
