Quenched (Parched, book 3) Out! Released! Finito!

Finally, book 3 of the Parched series has been released!

It’s my responsibility to post it here! 🙂

I have to say,  I really want to move on… write book 4 and 5.

And finally, last but CERTAINLY not least…

Thank you to all the readers of the Parched series! I don’t know how to put my appreciation in simple words, because it’s not simple at all. We as writers only hope  you read the stories that unfold in that part of the brain our stories form in.  Every time we release a book we HOPE you will CONSUME it… Ingest it. Live in the world. Feel it. You know??? That’s the greatest gift.

So thank you for giving me that gift–I am overwhelmed… 🙂

Quenched (Parched, book 3) – Now available on Amazon, Nook, Smashwords distributors!

    Is there continuity between 2 and 3? I feel like I was left on a cliff when the story was getting very good, but the reviews for 3 havent left me any closure in that I dont see any previous characters mentioned whatsoever….

    Thanks for your response!

      Hi Georgia,

      I’ve actually explained book 2 in the Product Description. Here’s what it says:


      I decided to make the second book in the Parched novel series short to deal with the limitations of writing in the first person point of view (or POV). See, Parched book one is told in Clarity’s POV but as the saga continues to unfold, other sisters will be introduced.

      So, I knew it was time to introduce Zillael but at the same time, she has this entire backstory. She’s in love with two supernatural creatures, who are part of the main plot. How their love triangle comes to be is the focus of book two. However, I wanted to show how different Zillael is from Clarity, Fawn and Adore as well, and how that adds substance to the main conflict as the series continues to move forward.

      So, the next release book 4 will be introducing Glo, the fifth sister. That’s how the series is written. Main, sister, main, sister, main, SISTERS, main (end).

      However, I THOUGHT, I wrote that book 1 will be the next book to read after reading book 2 BUT I don’t see it in the description at Amazon. Sorry about that. I’m going to update that now.

      Many thanks,

      Hi Georgia, I just pulled your comment out of my trash! I’m sorry about that. I didn’t mean to put it there and I definitely didn’t mean to NOT answer your question. There’s continuity between book 2 and 3 but you’ll definitely have to read book 1 before reading book 3 or you will be lost. I know a lot of people have read book 2 before book 1 and now I have the book 1 must read noted in the product description. Thanks for asking! Z
