EXCERPT UPCOMING: HEART OF OBSIDIAN

**Edited to add: Excerpt scheduled to go live 6am EST.**

Some exciting news! Since spoilers for HEART OF OBSIDIAN have begun to float around, I had a chat to my awesome editor and we've made the decision to release a full excerpt. And because you've all waited so long, I pitched for two whole chapters, and yep, you'll be getting them both on Monday!*

If you know the spoiler, shhh until Monday. After that, you'll have a spoiler zone to discuss everything freely. We just didn't want to risk posting an excerpt without warning the folks who want to avoid all spoilers. 


Also, because of the excerpt release, the big contest I mentioned in the last newsletter will launch Wednesday now. Prizes include ARCs for a number of books, not only my own, as well as other goodies!

p.s. Don't worry if you do want to continue to avoid spoilers - I'll plaster it with warnings so you can't accidentally see it!!

*Monday USA time. For those in my timezone, it'll be late Monday night/early Tuesday morning.

In, out, in, out *shake it all about*

I cannot resist spoilers . . . even though it spoils it . .

This is AWESOME. Thanks Nalini! I can't wait until Monday Night/Tuesday Morning.

So, things will be revealed? Like who the main couple are? Because I want to avoid that at all costs.

I must say I just looked at the German cover more closely and am now so confused! I thought I knew what to expect but that really puts a different spin on things. I'm hoping the excerpt will clear it up. Can't wait for Monday :D

Oh dear lord, the temptation to peek!

And this coming from someone who hates spoilers with the heat of a thousand supernovas too! (A testament to the power of Nalini's Psy/Changelings, indeed)

I can only handle an excerpt of chapters 1 & 2. That way I'm not really getting much spoiled... I just get a preview before the rest of the book comes out!

Oh my word, I'm so weak. I went searching for spoilers because I couldn't wait until monday. I found them and I'm spoiled. All I can say is WOW!!!! I even have my own idea about the heroine. Oh hurry up release day!!

Have preordered this, so also see it is a preview rather than a spoiler. Hope this appeases your readers who were disappointed over the blurb reveal. Can't wait, Thanks!!!

I'm in the US, and it's just after midnight here. I just noticed the time and remembered that you'd be posting the first two chapters today. As I logged on, I found myself giddily singing "so hang your stockings and say your prayers, 'cause Santa Claus comes tonight!" LOL! Here's hoping it's up soon! :-)

Elizabeth, grab some sleep. It'll be up just after 6am EST :)
