The picture of the new cover is there for Amaryllis. My copies are very worn out, so I'll be getting the new ones. It will be fun to read those again.

I finally broke down and bought a beat up used copy of Zinnia (I got the other 2 from here) and then a few days later saw Amaryllis at Borders.  I was not pleased.  Her website said there were not plans to reissue the books.  It's been a while since I checked the site but not that long-maybe a few months. 

Ah well.  All 3 of mine are unpostable too.  So I'll probably read them and then like offer all 3 for 1 credit just to cover the postage. Or maybe as freebies with an order from my shelf .  Or on Bookmooch.

that stinks....maybe its ok to do since the other versions are out of print? I'd hate for someone to order a copy and not get the new version. The only one I need is Orchid, anyhow.

It's common for publisher's to reuse ISBNs.  And if someone really wants the newer version they need to have an RC requiring one.  My guess is that's what they'll get since the other ones are hard to find. I'm really annoyed that I paid $12 for a beat up copy of Zinnia because her website said there was no intention to release these titles and now they are being released.  Grr.

I don't know if she has any control over what's re-released..I know Nora Roberts' older stuff keeps getting re-released and she marks the newer stuff with NR on the cover. I think it's a different publisher.

I have all three original releases, but am tempted to get the re-released ones as I LOVE that series.

I'll be getting all new ones because I love the series and I love the new covers. LOL  My copies are pretty ratty, too.
