Good News!

My head is spinning. Why?

Publishers Weekly
reviewed Mine to Possess and called it "...paranormal romance at its best..." Squee!!!!

I was still walking on air over that when I found out that Romantic Times gave MtP a 4.5 star Top Pick!!!!

But wait, there's more. Caressed By Ice was picked as one of the Hottest Books of 2007 by Michelle Buonfiglio's Romance B(u)y the Blog at Lifetime TV; and as I was about to write this blog, I was told that CBI's also been nominated for a Romantic Times Reviewer's Choice Award!!

Hence the head spinning (and excessive use of exclamation marks)! I think I need to throw a cyber-party to celebrate. So, pull up a chair, bring your drink of choice and tell me what's made your head spin lately. :-)

Angela James said...

Wheee! I saw the last two but didn't know about Publisher's Weekly. You're on fire, Nalini. How awesome for you and so richly deserved.

kylie said...

Great news, Nalini! Congrats! Sounds like you still have a few presents under the tree to tear open. What made my head spin of late? Literally, the stomach flu on Xmas eve...I know, cue the rolling eyes.

Maibeeme said...

BTW, and to give you an idea of how different our time zones are... The post that I just made says it´s 4 pm (I suppose in NZ). It´s midnight in Argentina :)

You deserve all the squee you can get :)
CONGRATS!!

Christine said...

CONGRATULATIONS, Nalini!!!
I can't think of a better way to celebrate than with some champagne! (or sparkling mineral water if you prefer ;)

What exciting and terrific news for you!
And you completely deserve every bit of praise! Your world building, characters, and story arcs are fantastic. Your story telling voice is amazing!

What a way to bring in the New Year! :D

Shelli Stevens said...

Oh my gosh you are just having fabulous news all around. Congrats, Nalini!

Ange - The Romance Groupie said...

That's amazing news, Nalini! Excessive use of exclamations is DEFINITELY called for under the circumstances. Congratulations! The word is out about your fab talent and I predict that the recognition (& awards) will keep rolling in!

Pam P said...

Yay, Nalini! You deserve all that recognition, I have a hard time waiting for the next, reading as soon as it gets in my door. They just get better and better! Talking around the net about best books of the year, CBI is on mine.

Nalini Singh said...

Thank you so much for celebrating with me, everyone! I'm so excited to share this with you all :)

Special hugs to (((Kylie))) for the flu. Hope you're getting better.

Kat said...

Congrats Nalini!!!!

CBI was one of the hottest books of 2007 and I'm sure MtP and HtP will be for 2008 :)

Feb. 5th can't get here fast enough.

My e-reader is still making my head spin and not in a good way.

Jaci Burton said...

Woooo hooo Nalini! You are on fire, girl!

And I can't think of anyone who deserves all these accolades more than you! :-)

Congrats!

MaryKate said...

Nalini - I'm thrilled for you. Course this means people are just realizing what we've known all along...that you rock!

I was thrilled to see Jaci had won as well, WW&W is one of my all time favorite anthologies.

Now I seriously can't wait to read Mine to Possess! It's still so far away. SIGH. Any chance you'll dole out one more snippet before the book comes out??? I figure I should ask while your head is spinning! ;oP

Seriously, congrats! I'm so pleased for you!

Barbara V said...

Congrats!
I can't wait to get my hands into MTP.

Courtney said...

Congrats, Nalini! What a wonderful thing. You so deserve this. CBI was so wonderful. I still drool when I think about Judd....I think it may be time for a reread!

*pours champagne and reaches for CBI*

orannia said...

CONGRATULATIONS Nalini! That's fantastic news and very well deserved! I echo MaryKate's plea for another excerpt please....even a snippet would be lovely :) February 5 seems so far away...next year in fact :)

Nicola Marsh said...

Congrats Nalini on all your wonderful news :)

Veronica Wolff said...

Nalini! I thought I'd visit and see what you're up to, and saw *this* news! How fantastic--congratulations!! What a happy new year treat!

Jaya said...

Congrats on the fabulous year you have had! CBI was SO good.I had really enjoyed the two books before, but CBI just has to be my favorite so far. Judd may just go down as the most droolworthy hero of 2007 for me :D

About stuff that has made my head spin recently, if it doesn't have to be limited to personal achievements (:P),I might have something. Have you checked out this Bollywood movie called 'Taare Zameen Par'?

Shelley Munro said...

That's just awesome, Nalini. Well deserved. Congratulations.

Jennifer Lewis said...

Fantastic news, Nalini! What a great way to start the new year.
