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. 🙂

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.
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!
