Parched, “Steal With A Kiss” Coming September 2013!

Just wanted to let you know that Parched novel that I’m currently writing is scheduled to be in the hands of the editor on September 2, 2013 (on my birthday! :-)).

I’ve already finished the first chapter, and just like “Find Her, Keep Her” I’m writing really fast.

I’m also writing another story, which was once a TV series that I developed. It’s titled, “A Complex Kind of Love Thing.” I’ll tell you more about it later. I’m trying to figure out what to make it: a serial or a novel in a three book  series. 

I was up until 12:30AM last night writing on the second story and it’s more in depth than the script, and I’m taking a different angle as far as the love story goes. It’s nice 🙂 I’m going to post an excerpt from chapter one soon. 

Alright. So, onward I go. 


“Steal With a Kiss” features Zill and Vayle and they’re in college. If you know anything about Zill, then you know she hates that but regardless, there are some strange goings-on in this university and she has no choice but to figure what’s happening. 

So. that’s a weak description. I’ll write a better one soon and also post some excerpts, also soon. 

And now back to writing. Io ho un lezione d’italiano alla quattro di pomeriggio!

More soon!

Much Love

    Hey Z,
    So glad the writing is going well. You’re just burning it up!!! 🙂
    I just had my birthday!! I did an “all carb day”. Lol It was kinda fun, but I passed out early from all the cake and wine!!! So….:-/
    Sent out your surprise today, finally. It took me a while. Sorry. It’s been a long week. My 22 year old son totalled my van. He is ok, but it has been a long week. Needless to say, nothing went as planned last week. I think I’m getting back on track now.
    Happy writing friend, Vic

      I am so happy he’s okay. Once I got a ticket on the 101 Hollywood freeway by the officer with the red-hair who used to stalk it. So I had to go to traffic school to keep it off my record. And the biggest lesson I learned that day was that a car is a deadly weapon. You can hit someone going 5 miles per hour and kill them. So I’m so happy he’s safe and sound. Here’s to you getting back on track! thanks for stopping by!

      Oh, and I think I’m going to steal your birthday carb day idea! Sounds sooooo FUN! 😉

      Oh and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!

      Talk soon!
