What’s Coming Soon!

Greetings All!

It’s been a while since I’ve written a blog post. Well… I’ve been working like crazy to finish He’s So Bad: A San Francisco Love Story while dating a great guy, who makes sure that I add some life/fun balance in my life. So, I skidded to the end of my June 26th deadline for He’s So Bad Ā and it’s now with the editor. I was still mentally exhausted when I made it to the end but it could’ve been worse if it weren’t for him. šŸ™‚

I like the story. I’ve writtenĀ whatĀ the story required. Robert had to arc, meaning he had to evolve, and YOU, the reader, has to believe he’sĀ changed. And the elements that made him change needed to beĀ credible. I believe I accomplished that in this book. šŸ™‚

I won’t give away the ending but we’ll see Robert againĀ in Made to Love Her: Maggie & Vince, #3. Btw, after 3 books in each of the couple’s series, I will bring their romance to an HEA ending. So these books will never go past a third book. Ā There may be less than three books but never a fourth. This brings me to my next update.

You’ve asked and I will write another Daisy & Belmont story. It will be titled, Found Him, Kept Him: Daisy & Belmont, book 3. There will only be theĀ one breakout book in the Charlie & Angel series–Say You Love Me. And there will be only one breakout book in the Robert Tango series: He’s So Bad. The next book will be He’s So Good.

But there are WAY more books to come in the LOVE in the USA series. I have all sorts of love stories to write–Portland, Boston, DC, back to Manhattan, back to LA, and on and on :-).

Other news… I will be going live with a new website in September or October. I’ll keep you updated. It’s time…

And… After July 10th, I’ll start on Forget Me Never (Pt. II).

That’s it for now šŸ™‚

Time to make dinner.

Until next time!

    Absolutely love your books …..read all of them I believe. I read so fast…patiently waiting. Lol

      Thanks so much, Tahira! šŸ™‚ Regarding your question I have about the Parched series. I have some plans to revive the series. It’s not doing so good right now but I do consider the series as an indication of my finest writing and storytelling. The books are so fun to write. So far I have Forget Me Never (Pt. II) on my immediate writing schedule and then after that one final Parched novel. But as usual, I’m not sure about this. I’ve recently had some ideas about another book in this series and I think that I MUST write it. I seriously don’t know anymore. I LOVE the Parched series and I don’t think my heart can stand it if I just stop writing on it. However, you readers are going to have to bear with me for a while. I’m also feeling the loss of Misty Black. I like writing romance but I LOVE writing Fantasy and Sci Fi with romantic elements.

      That was a LONG answer to a great question! Thanks so much for asking! All best, Z

      Hi Marsha! I’m so glad to hear that šŸ™‚ Thanks for stopping by to let me know! All best, Z!

    You are an amazing writer and I have really enjoyed reading your work. I am on book three of the Love in the USA series, and can’t wait to finish. Do you think you will write a story line with African American characters? Just asking.
    Thank you,

      Hi Nikki, thanks for reading my books! I truly appreciate it. Actually, there are black people in my books. Daisy, Angelina and Jacques are black. Thanks for asking! Z
