    Read Soul Mates Now!

    Read it with Book Funnel for FREE! Things to remember: The book contains the complete story. If you want to read Soul Mates only, then you should go directly to Part 3. I’m rewriting Paisley and Hercules’s story. I want to streamline the story and make it more romantic. The working title of the book I’m writing now is Forbidden. I’m not sure it’ll be my final title though. However, What happens at the end of Soul Mates as far as the lead-in to the next brother’s story, will remain the same. But I’m writing the beats leading up to that ending differently.  And now, I hope you enjoy!  …

    Soul Mates Update – 8-5-2021

    Alrighty… So. Introduction I have canceled the Soul Mates pre-order on Amazon because I changed the release date from 11/30/2021 to 8/13/2021. But the release date will certainly be 11/30/2021.

Trying Something New Releasing the story about a couple as a standalone is somewhat new for me. I’ve released in trilogies or duets so…

    Z.L.s Publishing Update 7-26-2021

    You know those books I wrote during a pandemic that reflect how I was coping with this terrible era in our world’s history? That’s what’s going on with the Valentines. Did you know that The Billionaire Hercules and Valentine and I books are set in the year 2065? I put them in the future because I hated everything about the moment. I hated how we as a species were dealing with the pandemic. I wanted to run far away from the people of today. And I think the story is longer because I was living in that world with my characters and in a universe where none of what we were…

    Soul Mates Release Update and Other Things

    It’s Thursday evening and I’ve been working my behind off today. Sigh… It’s going to be a long rest of the month but I’ll get through it. I wanted to write this post this morning but I’m running late. I think it’s time to sign off and watch The Good Fight. Gosh, I love that show. Anyway, I wanted to inform you that there’s a slight delay in editing. Soul Mates will get to the editor next week on the 23rd! I’m still going to release on August 31st though! Also, I’ve been grappling with combining Tempting Fate with The Deception. My gut says I need to do it. I’ve…
