Its a bit of mayhem but we wouldn’t change a thing (except maybe living a bit closer so we can actually work in-person more often). Let us know what you think. Have you every tried team writing?

I am now self-publishing all my books because Loose Id closed its doors, my first and last publishing house, the others closing shop these past few years – Awe-Struck, Aspen Mountain Press, Musa Publishing, Ellora’s Cave… Vina and I self-publish our coauthored books, and so I know the drill. The hardest part, leaving alone already good books that have been edited several times.
I just can’t do it! I don’t know a writer who can leave their books alone when they get them back in their hands. Some of my books are twelve years old, and well, I hope I’m a better writer now. Or that’s what I tell myself, giving myself permission to edit my already edited books…over and over and over. That’s why I use Grammarly – an online editing software program that can catch my mistakes when I make my numerous editorial changes. There’s the fear of the dreaded typo that haunts authors. I don’t know a book that doesn’t have one or two…and I hope to keep them very far and few among the pages of my books.
Look for my first re-releases Out of Bounds (written as a ‘coming out’ challenge for LI) and A Rumored Affair (last book written for LI) – these are both contemporaries novellas (40,000 plus). Vina and I have a new contemporary Long, Tall, Cowboy that’s very, very close to being published this fall. I love the book cover – hint: a very hot cowboy. 🙂

I’m so excited to have a new book published. This story takes place at one of my all-time favorite locations: Big Sur (Before the road collapse of 2016!) It’s an ‘opposites fall in love’ romance guaranteed to have a happily ever after.
Please share the news with your friends. The book is priced at 2.99 at Loose ID and will be available soon on other 3rd party sites.
Valerie Tibbs is the book cover artist….isn’t it a gorgeous cover
Vacationing at a gay resort is risky business for Winter Media’s CEO, Graham Winters. In negotiations for the purchase of an anti-LGBTQ publication, if found out he preferred men, the deal would collapse, along with Winter Media’s bottom line. But take a risk, Graham does. He can’t pass up two weeks where he can be himself.
But when Graham arrives at Secretus, there is no record of his reservation. Never one to take no for an answer, he coerces the owner of Secretus, Chris Katsaros, to let him stay in Chris’s home.
Winter Media owns one of the worst gossip rags in the country, so Chris has no choice but to agree to Graham’s terms. Chris keeps a low profile when it comes to Secretus, securing a safe environment where high profile gays can relax without media hounding their every move. An introvert by nature, Chris has a difficult time letting anyone into his life. As a foster kid, he had never experienced love until adopted by Pete and Bob.
Forced to entertain Graham, Chris finds they have more in common than he ever thought. The attraction between them is real, and Chris’s guarded heart begins to thaw.

Update from our writing retreat in Sacramento, April 8, 2017:
You haven’t heard from us in a while. We’d like to say it’s because we were writing our NYT-bound saga, but actually life just got in the way. It does that, doesn’t it? Cross-country moves, illness, retirements, new jobs, you name it. But thankfully, our families are mostly intact, and we’ve settled in to our respective towns. Once again, we live in different states and Skype has been our very good friend!
So what’s coming down the pike from Viki and Vina? All good things, friends. You’ve hung in there while we hemmed and hawed about what to write next. So, here’s are the rewards.
First off, Forbidden Bite (the dreamy Jude Mikhail and yummy Angelo’s story) is 70% complete. We plan a summer release. Want some sizzle on your beach vacation? Forbidden Bite will be well worth the wait.
Second, remember Vince and John (like you could have forgotten them, eh)? There are two enticing short stories (free reads) coming soon. And they lead up to a very BIG EVENT. Can you guess what that might be? Nope, we’re not telling, not for coffee or chocolate or…well, maybe for Hershey’s Kisses.
Third, we weren’t all about life distractions during our hiatus. We got a contemporary male-male cowboy romance completed. Yes, sorry should have given ya’ll a heads up- COMPLETED. Release data TBA once we work through all the blah-blah parts of publishing with Amazon.
These two guys? They’re a long, tall drink of water on a hot summer day.
That’s it for now, folks. Thank you for visiting and stay tuned for rewards and freebies and more love stories to cherish by Viki and Vina.
This is a wonderful animation that shows the Hero’s Journey – and a wonderful reminder of why certain books and movies are classics! To read more about Joseph Campbell and the Hero’s Journey visit brainpickings!
