    I’m in love with the series love in the usa, I’m waiting for book #6, I was wondering how many books will there be total. And I really wish that these can be made into a movie, I would love to see how my visual is compared.

    • Z.L Arkadie

      Hi Megan, Thanks for stopping by to spread the love πŸ™‚ I’m not sure how many books there will be in the series. I will keep writing the characters stories until I’m satisfied. I still have books to write starring Monroe, Robert Tango and Dexter. Now that I finished Explore Her, More of Her, I know exactly who Monroe and Dexter’s love interest will be. But first I have another Maggie & Vince book to write. And I’m forming an idea for a Charlie and Angelina book. So, yep, there are more but how many? I don’t know. Thanks for asking! All best, Z!

    Hello, I’ve gotten most of the books for Love in the USA, but I can’t find a book that I think I either put in the wrong list or maybe the name’s been changed. The book is ‘Getting To Know Her’ and I have it as Love in the USA #4. I’m loving what I’ve read so far and am excited to keep going but I don’t want to go out of order and miss one. Thanks so much and please keep writing as I love your work!!! After I finish this series, I’m going to start your Parched series.

I go by Kathy or Kat (my mom has same name but with C instead of K). Take care and hopefully one day meet you at a signing in NYC!

  • Maria

    I stumbled upon your Love in the USA series and I love it!! I enjoy a good read when the only good thing to do is to cuddle under a warm blanket on a cold day.

  • Megan

    I’ve just finished reading say you love her another amazing book! Cannot wait for the next one to come out! Pre ordered already lol! I’m a bit scared of what’s going to happen to Belmont and daisy now though :p I’ll have to wait and see! Thank you for the great books and good luck in your new one! Xx

    • Z.L Arkadie

      You’re welcome, Megan! And Thank YOU for reading them πŸ™‚ Don’t worry about Belmont and Daisy, they’ll be tried by fire but they’ll emerge as bright as gold… Or something πŸ™‚ All best! Z

  • Elenor

    Hi, I pre ordered the latest book and now it’s finally on I books but I have to pay for it again when I already did! Why is that?

    • Z.L Arkadie

      Hi Elenor! Actually with question such as this I would advise the customer to contact the retailer. However, I am able to to answer this one. When you pre-order the book it’s not an actual sale so Apple doesn’t charge you. Once the book is released, they charge your method of payment. I, myself, had issues with this because I normally don’t store a form of payment in my iTunes account so I had to put the payment information in so that they can charge me. Most people probably have their payment information stored in iTunes. I don’t because I share my account with my nephew who randomly charges silly little teenage boy games for the iPad I bought him for his birthday. I hope that helped answer your question. If not, then you’ll have to contact iTunes. They customer service reps are some of the best. Have great evening! Z!

      • Elenor

        Thank you so much Z! It’s just when I seen the book on iTunes I was like oh it was finally released but I didn’t get any notifications or get the book in my iBooks library. So when I searched it I seen that it cost 2.99 and I was confused because I know I payed for it when I pre ordered it… I guess ill just call them in the morning and figure it out because I cannot wait to read it!

    Hi, I’m from the uk and have only read the first book to this series, I fell in love with it, but I’m the kinda girl who likes the paperback and I’m looking to buy the series on paperback. I’ve managed to find parched and the seventh sister on paperback, but i can’t find quenched on it yet, will it be available soon? And if soo plleaseeee keep me updated, thank you x

    • Z.L Arkadie

      Hi Marie! Boy is your question timely or what! πŸ™‚ Late last year I discovered Red Adept Editing, who are tried and true professional quality editors so at the moment I’m working on re-editing and re-releasing all the novels in the Parched series, which were not initially edited by them. Parched, Book 1 goes into editing on February 24th and Quenched is scheduled for March 24th. You can expect both to be released in paperback a month after editing. It’s a big project that I’m working on. I will have the entire project completed by mid October 2014. However, each book will be released in paperback about a month after it goes in for editing. My last editing date for Vanquished is September 8, 2014. I’m going to start a standard Update post for this project so that whenever you want to know how the project is progressing and what’s been released you can just check it.

      Hope that answered your question. Thanks again for asking! All best, Z!

    • Z.L Arkadie

      Hi, Lisa! I’m in the process of writing the book. I have an April 28th edit date/deadline, which I should definitely have no problem making. I will say that the book will more than likely be released on Thursday, May 29th at the latest. πŸ™‚ Right now, I’m on chapter 1, which is the toughest part of a novel to write… grrrrr…. πŸ™‚ Thanks for asking! All best, Z!

  • kiesse

    I read the 2 LA love story books in a week. I loved the stories. I couldn’t stop reading!!! Now I’m waiting for the 3rd book of the LA love story.

    • Z.L Arkadie

      Hi Kiesse,

      Thanks for stopping by to let me know you enjoyed the books! πŸ™‚ Say You Love Her will be out soon. I hope you enjoy that story as well! All best! Z

  • Louise O

    My boyfriend isn’t very happy with you… Apparently I’ve been neglecting him and my iPad has been receiving all of my attention. He is however, happy to learn that “Say You Love Her” is not available until 1st March(already pre-ordered). I could not put Keep her, Find Her and There’s Something About Her down and found myself sneaking in a page or two when I could, much to my boyfriends disgust lol. Roll on 1st March!!! Thank you for sharing your talent and please don’t stop πŸ™‚

    • Z.L Arkadie

      LOL!!! Tell him I apologize sincerely πŸ™‚ I can’t wait to get “Say You Love Her” in your hands! I hope you like book 3 just as much. Thanks for stopping by! All best, Z!

  • Lesa L.

    I have purchased and read the “Parched” series last week. I love the yin and yang of the Sisters and their Bonds, the whole plot really. It was a refreshing change in vampire novels. I cannot wait for the new release in this series. Have you thought of Prequel novels? Also in depth stories on each sister? Can you tell, I want more πŸ™‚

    • Z.L Arkadie

      Hi Lesa! Thanks so much for your comment. Yes, actually, I have thought about writing prequel novels. Tapeetha, Navi and Fawns early years demand to be told. However, generally I hate reading or viewing backwards–I’m not sure how I feel about writing backwards. That’s why I wrote what I call the apostrophe novels–book 2, 4 and 6. And even those novels where occurring simultaneously with the main novels–books 1, 3, 5 and then 7. I’ll see if I could conceive a prequel with enthusiasm in the future. Fingers crossed! πŸ™‚ Thanks for asking, and reading! All best, Z

  • Michelle

    I read both in the USA love series in two days. I read the first book twice and I’m about to start the second one again. I’m totally hooked. So glad that Daisy and Jack were in the second, too. Wish Daisy would’ve gotten to say her piece to Maya! I hope you continue to keep all characters going forward. I feel like I know them. I can’t wait for the third book! So excited! I hardly ever have time to read, but these books have made me realize I have to make time. Love them, love them, love them! Thank you!

    • Z.L Arkadie

      Thanks, Michelle! I really like to hear how engrossed a reader becomes in the books I write. I try to write them so that will happen and you’ve just let me know that I’ve done my job! I’m the first reader I have to satisfy. If I can’t read through it without wanting to see what happens next, then I know I need to go back to the drawing board πŸ™‚ So thank you very much for stopping by! All best, Z!

  • Kathryn Maddison

    I just have to say I love your love in the USA books 1 & 2…. Once I started I couldn’t stop until I’d finished (much to my husbands dismay!) please keep writing these fabulous books, love your stuff!!
    P.S now I will have to read ALL your other books while I wait for the 3rd book!
    Kat

    • Z.L Arkadie

      Hi Kat! Ahhh… Thank you so very much for taking the time to stop by and offer your words of encouragement. They are inspiring and motivating and let me tell you, no one appreciates them more than me! πŸ™‚ Thanks again and may you have a FANTASTIC 2014! All best, Z!

  • Sherry

    I read Find Her, Keep Her in about 12 hours. Can’t tell you the last time that I did that…I just couldn’t put it down…couldn’t wait to see where the characters went. Almost done with book #2…looking forward to #3. Keem’em coming! Thanks for sharing your talent!

  • Megan

    Hi! I’ve read love in the USA book 1 and 2 in 2 days! Couldn’t put them down! Can’t wait for book 3! I think you mad your books are fabulous! Thank you!
