Love’s Last Bite Is Here!

LovesLastBite_200

BUY HERE!

Whew! Finally, book 3 in the Orbus Arcana series. 🙂 As you can see by the cover, Vince and John are now standing side by side. 🙂 And, well, we don’t want to give the book away, but this concludes Vince and John’s love story…but don’t worry, they will have a say when it comes to Angelo’s love story. Vince can’t keep out of Angelo’s business when it comes to Angelo’s stubborn heart. John is trying his best to curb Vince’s desire to see Angelo squirm when it comes to his heart. Those boys!

For those of you who haven’t picked up the series, you can download book 1 – For The Bite Of It – for free on Valentine’s Day on Amazon.


Free Amazon Read on Valentine’s Day

FortheBiteofIt_200To celebrate Valentine’s Day,  For The Bite Of It will be free on Amazon all day – February 14!

This is the first book in the Orbus Arcana series and introduces John and Vince. The start of their love story and a perfect way to to celebrate Valentine’s Day. 🙂

A Bite In Time is book 2 and available for purchase, and look for Book 3 – Love’s Last Bite on Amazon! We hope to have it published by Valentine’s Day or close to the date. This will conclude John and Vince’s angst filled trip toward their HEA. We already plotted out book 4 which will feature a new couple from the series.

It’s all about the BITE.

I can’t believe it’s ages since we’ve posted. I got caught up in the holidays, and now visiting family for two weeks in California. This means my routine is thrown out the window during the time away from home. The year started out crazy and is continuing through February. Once the dust settles, we hope to get more active online.

Good news. Vina and I finished book 3 of the Orbus Arcana Series – Love’s Last Bite. We are on track for publishing the book mid-February. Yay!

Love the cover! 🙂 Thank you Lex.

We also set up a blog blitz tour with Goddess Fish, kick-off February 23. We will be giving away a $15.00 Amazon GC. So mark this on your calendar.

Vina and I worked very hard on making the final romance arc for John and Vince satisfying for our readers. John really takes a leap of faith for Vince. At the end of the month, we’re going to plot out book 4 of the Orbus Arcana series featuring one of our favorite secondary characters – can you guess who? In between books, we will be publishing an angel/demon series Book 1 of Deliverance (formerly Sins of Lust) – in edits now. And a cowboy contemporary m/m romance novella – Long, Tall, Cowboy.

Cheers,

Our first Audio Book

How exciting is this? The audio version of For The Bite Of It is now up for sale; narrated by the fabulous Chip Wood.

Watch the trailer here.

How did we get there? Well, first we had to decide we wanted an audio version of our book. That part was a cinch. Score Viki 1, Vina 1.

Next, we had to find a narrator. That part was not a cinch. We listened to — can’t even remember how many audio book samples. We scoured the Audible site for producers. We listened to their audio trailers. And one voice stood out between the audio book samples and the trailers – Chip Wood. Vina decides he’s one of the top picks. Sends it Viki and waits with bated breath (so not wanting to listen to any more voices). Thankfully, Viki agrees. Score Viki-Vina still even.

We navigated the ACX system at Amazon (not an intuitive easy to use despite their claims).  We bungled our way through several options and managed to make Chip an offer. He accepted and the rest, folks, is history. The audio version of For The Bite Of It went on sale this past week. And we scored – – love, love, love it.

Chip is conscientious. He made sure he was representing Vince and John just like they were in our heads. He emailed often, checking on pronunciations and names and world-building. We felt like this guy really cared about our work. He produced an excellent audio book and we are so grateful to him. Check out Chip’s portfolio – he does some really fun voices.

Chip is now working on A Bite In Time; expected release sometime in the spring of 2015. We can’t wait to see how Chip takes Vince and John further into their relationship. And of course, then there’s the last book for this duo – Love’s Last Bite.

So, if you’re looking for a little cupcake-sex-vampire-cop mayhem to listen to over Thanksgiving, give Vince and John a try. In case you missed it, watch the trailer here.

Cheers,  Vina


Great Review

Just when you’re feeling down, because you have the most horrendous cough in the midwest, and your inspiration is low, you read something like this great review at The Blogger Girls. Thank you, thank you, thank you. A Bite In Time is available through Amazon. Like cupcakes and vampires and sexy cops? Look no further – A Bite In Time.

Book 3 is very much in the works. We have 5 chapters left – whoo hoo!

Cheers,

Vina

 


Trick or Treat With a Real Vampire: The Meanest, Baddest Kid

We’re excited to share with Orbus Arcana readers a free short story. John and Vince take John’s nephews and niece out trick or treating. Can you guess John and Vince’s costumes? Hint: the costumes aren’t so costume-y after all. Hope you enjoy the short story and let us know what you think!

Happy reading,

Vina and Viki

Orbus Arcana Halloween 2014 Short Story


Bizarre day jobs of authors

I found this the other day. Some are not so bizarre – I mean these folks had to eat and live, no?

Article: http://huff.to/W1nLcW

And suddenly, my day job seems pretty okay.

So which do you think is the weirdest? My vote is for the Oyster Pirate!

Cheers, Vina

 


Welcome!

After writing two books together, we decided we needed a joint home on the web.  Please…grab a cuppa…browse…stay a while…and let us know what you think.

Have you read Books 1 and 2 of the Orbus Arcana Series?

For The Bite of It and A Bite In Time are both available at Amazon. We’re getting great reviews and we want to take a moment to thank all our readers who take the time to write a review. We appreciate you!

We’re hard at work on several projects; for now we’re keeping our eyes on the endgame, which is completing the Orbus Arcana series. Book 3, which will close up Vince and John’s story (stay tuned for LOTS of conflict and some real time in Vince’s Orbus Arcana land – think quaint, cobblestoned European towns, the sea as blue as John’s eyes, and plenty of bad guys after the boys). After that…who else…of course, Angelo. He’s been jonesing for his own story from about page 10 of For The Bite of It.

We’re also working on a couple of short stories bridging the time between books. Vince and John take the kids trick or treating. Imagine Halloween with a real vampire!

We hope you’ll visit often. We’ll be here, ready to share stories and our travels with you.

Cheers,

Vina & Viki
