Z.L. Arkadie, who feels the world and the people who she meet are her influences, loves reality TV just as she is fond of fashion. Her favorite television shows include: “The Real Housewives of Atlanta”, “The Real Housewives of New York” and “Project Runway”. She has provided coverage for production companies and screenwriting contents besides working on improving her fiction-writing skills. Zuleika took to writing romance after she found most of the existing ones boring and with a dull, sexual tinge. “The Great Gatsby” is one of her favorite books which she has read countless number of times. She tells it very candidly that if she is inspired to write and got success as a writer then it is because of the famous novel “The Great Gatsby”. Breakfast is Zuleika’s favorite meal of the day. The writer is also a very ritualistic person who even goes through the same motion during shower.
Z.L. Arkadie books:
Zuleika Arkadie has written a number of book series, including “Love in the USA” (comprises eight books), “Parched” (nine books), “Daisy & Belmont” (two books) and “Maggie & Vince” (two books). Z.L. Arkadie has also authored The Sexy Series with TR Bertrand which has four books.
Zuleika’s first series was “Parched” and its four books of this series – “Parched: A Vampire Romance”, “The Seventh Sister”, “Quenched: A Vampire Romance” and “The Fifth Sister” were released in the year 2011.
Here we give a brief description of the two early books in the “Parched” series authored by Z.L. Arkadie for the readers to get a glimpse of her skills with the pen:
Parched: A Vampire Romance: Clarity Parker, an advertising executive, had never expected to see Baron Ford again. The two had shared dates five years ago and then Baron just vanished. The man has come back and asked Clarity to exclusively handle his multi-million account. Clarity then faces the crisis of life as she felt someone or something is making her pay for things with her life. The woman soon gets a shock after escaping to a place known as Enu. There she comes to know who she really is and also that Baron Ford is actually Baron Ze Feldis – a vampire. The duo’s bonds run deeper than that can be imagined. They also soon find out that Baron’s former psycho-vampire girlfriend wants to see Clarity dead and an evil’ as they hunt for the book comprising the Prophecy of the Seven Seeds. Can they turn things around from here?
The Seventh Sister: Zillael is a young girl who has no friends or a social life and she hates the tiny town where she resides and the high school where she studies. But things change in her life one afternoon when the fog rolls in and she faces three parched vampires. Zillael, who possesses a secret ability, does not give in and fights the vampires. To her shock, she also finds that the most popular boy in her school – Derek Firth – who she had behaved rudely earlier in the day, comes forward to help her against those creatures. Zillael also learns soon after that her world is not the one it looked like. A new side of Derek, an apparently nice boy who the girls had a liking and teachers praised, is not actually that. He is a Wek. Moreover, the fourth vampire which got away bonded well with the girl in most crazy way. Zillael soon discovers that she is falling for both Wek and the vampire at the same time. But Zillael has a purpose in life and the super ability she has is not for a reason. She finally discovers it one day when the fog rolls back into the tiny town.
Z.L. Arkadie’s characters:
Maggie and Vince: They are two popular characters in Zuleika’s “Love in the USA” series for their honesty and truthful way of living. The characters are also gritty and mature who take things as they come. Zuleika’s books are also fun to read as characters from other books show up the middle of another story.
Daisy and Belmont: Daisy and Belmont are another pair of impressive characters who the readers have identified well. The women characters are particularly projected as strong and smart but sometimes, they are believed to turn weaker when it comes to sex. The relationship between the male and female characters are also shown to have realistic angles.
Charlie and Angel: Charlie and Angel feature in “Say You Love Me”, a new book in the “Love in the USA” series and the author has pinned hope on the commercial success of this pair as well.
Besides these Zuleika’s “Love in the USA” have some characters like Monroe, Hannah and Dexter Frampton who also have proved to be very popular with the readers.
Z.L. Arkadie’s ARC Group:
That Zuleika gives a lot of importance to the readers of her book can be seen from her looking for an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) Group. It is a team of advanced readers who will get a free advance copies of the author’s new releases in lieu of giving honest reviews. The members of this group have to go through every book which is sent to them in whatever format they like and post their reviews on various platforms on the date of the release. The ARC Group members need to read all books, irrespective of the series.
