Psy-Changeling News

I have two pieces of Psy-Changeling news for you today.

First up, I'll be doing a Psy-Changeling novella for next year, to be released as part of a multi-author anthology. This is something that just came together- I don't know if the other authors have announced it to their readers, so I can't tell you who they are yet, but it's an awesome lineup.

I've decided we'll be going back to DarkRiver territory for this novella. Release date will be late in 2014. More info on that to come once I get it.

And as promised, I have the name of the hero of Psy-Changeling #13 for you. The heroine is a new character so I'll share further information about her once I'm deeper into writing the book and have gotten to know her a little more.

Because the hero is a character who walks in the shadows and it seems appropriate that we should have to work to find him, I'm going to put his name in white text below - to see it, just select everything below this paragraph with your mouse (or use Shift plus the down arrow).

Ready? Here he is:

VASIC

As you can guess, this book will be tightly connected with the events of Heart of Obsidian. More info to come after I complete a solid draft.

Thrilled its to be Vasic. I just love him, so complex and damaged. I loved Kaleb's story so can't wait for it to be published. I have the whole series in printed and ebook form so I can re-read them wherever I am.

Eva said...

OMG! My favourite hunted gray eyes will get their own heroine! Can´t wait to read his story Nalini.

(Ahhh... I would love to see him with a changeling (cough - Maybe a tiger?)).

BookJunkie said...

Anonymous said...

Squealed when I saw the name! So excited!

Nanik said...

Oh, It's a great news! I can't wait to read about him, to know him better :):):) I'm so excited! But I also miss the others - Lucas&Sascha, and Hawke, and Mercy...

Brooke McKinnon said...

YESSSSSSS!!!!!! I was hoping we would get to know him better

cynthia said...

You are really being cruel, you know. We are going to wait at least nine long months (if the next book is released in March like the last few)for this wonderful book! AAAAAARRRRRGGGGHHH!!!!!!

YAY!!! I am hoping that we get Aden's story after Vasic.

teriannesis said...

Yes I love Vasic and want to see more. We already know one thing, (The heroine is a new character so I'll share further information about her once I'm deeper into writing the book and have gotten to know her a little more.)
We know that the heroine isn't Alice. Which is good because I think Aden and Alice is better.

cynthia said...

June!!!! That's even longer!!!!wahhhhhhhhh:(

missy joey said...

hahaha, I wonder if I'm the only one who's slightly disappointed that Psy-Changeling #13 isn't a Vasic/Aden pairing.

But I am extremely looking forward to Vasic's story come 2014. If any author can make me fall in love with any hero, it's Nalini.

Dianne R said...

@ missy joey. Actually I thought that's where it was heading too be honest and am slightly disappointed about it

Anonymous said...

@missey joey. I'll admit to being a little disappointed for the same reason, but I love Nalini's writing so I'm sure I'll enjoy the story anyway!

AJ said...

Yay!!!!! I adore Vasic! I'm so glad he gets his own book :) Now we just need details on his heroine!

Melinda said...

I knew it!! WOOHOO!!! I can't wait for Vasic's book. I wonder if he's hooked up with a human or changling. Thanks Nalini.

teriannesis said...

I am really confused. people were looking forward to Nalini writing a male/male romance? Personally that would be the end of the series for me. While I cannot say I am bigoted, I have no desire to read a male loves male romance and think it would ruin the whole series. Just one woman's opinion

Anonymous said...

@teriannesis - It's just a joke...I don't think anyone really expected NAlini to write a book with an M/M pairing, but Vasic and Aden are just such good friends that...:P

ming-ki said...

Vasic???!!!! OH MY GOSHH!!!
Can't wait! I must say that he and his partner are even more intriguing than Kaleb!!

Hooray! Finally!

Brooke said...

Almost screamed into my pillow when I read the news! Just barely refrained. I've loved Vasic since the very beginning. Can't wait!!!

Crossing my fingers for the novella to be Bastien's story, with the kindergarten teacher. :D

<3

pinkpumpkinpalace said...

Am very excited about the next book and hate the wait for it! Have no idea how many times I have already reread Kaleb's story, or how many times I have reread my other faves as well! The wait will be worth it though - just have to remind myself patience!!

Anonymous said...

YES!!! I hoped that it was him. In Heart of Obsidian I was afraid that he was beyond saving. I hope the heroine manages to bring him into the light! Now all we have to do is wait...

Anonymous said...

I've got to say I'm a little disappointed it's not a Vasic/Aden pairing too. It looked like that's where it was headed.
@ teriannesis- No one expects her to write a romance with the main characters being of the same sex but having them as a sort of story within the main story has been done before by other well known romance writers with no problems. I'm surprised we haven't seen same sex couples in the archangel series. With the vampires and angels living hundreds/thousands of yrs. i'd expect them to all be bisexual, they're so hedonistic :-)

YES! YES! YESSSSSS!!!! *happy dance*
OMG! I'm so excited! VASIC! *screamssssssss*

Diane said...

Nalini mentioned during her book tour in the states that Aden and Vasic have a brother to brother relationship. She had never contemplated a romance between them but it is a more familial relationship. Listening to her explanation, it makes perfect sense that it wouldn't go that way. :)

Anonymous said...

Well, in reading Heart of Obsidian, it did seem like an Aden - Vasic pairing, but I'm so glad he gets a heroine...

What's with the time between each book? I know she's working on 2 series but really, we used to get 3 books a year :(.

Anonymous said...

Yayness! Vasic is a wonderful, but horribly masochistic, self sacrificing git. He so deserves someone, and Aden too. I'm so happy that Vasic won't get the chance to kill himself. He'll be happy like Judd.

Brenna Mckenzie said...

That's lovely news Nalini! So excited. Do you plan to develop Kit's character any further within the remaining book?

Bec said...

I'm also very excited. I was thrilled to have Kaleb, but so excited for Vasic.

Laura said...

Yay!

And also excited about the novella: will it be another Changeling story? I miss Hawke/Sienna etc making their appearances. And I'm keeping my fingers crossed for stories (or one story, even better! :D) for Matthias and Mariska.

Joanna972 said...

Vasic would pair nicely with Alice. She knew Zaied (sp?) the first Arrow...Vasic makes me think of him.

Melissa Lewis said...

I was hoping for that. Can't wait!

Anonymous said...

@Laura: Matthais and Mariska? I hadn't even thought about that, but with Brenna mentioning her in Tangle of Need (which I absolutely love by the way...just finished reading it for the fouth time) and how she intended to get Mariska to come out more often? Could be a winner!

Saveta said...

Nalini can't wait to read your next books......you are absolutely awesome.....I find myself rereading your books until the new ones are out never gets boring:)

Barb said...

Yay! Vasic! I was hoping for either Vasic's or Aden's story - but I really hope he gets a changeling - they just seem so much more passionate and lovable and I miss them :)

Anonymous said...

Yes, i like vasic but aden and vasic usually go hand in hand. I think a love interest for both. Aden is usually following Vasic to make sure he does not follow his dark side. Plus i want to know more about adens skills, he is a telepath but was hinted about in HOO maybe he has some foresight. I always knew he was more than a medic.
