Website & Audiobook Cover

The website has been updated. We're still working on a couple of things, but there's a longer excerpt for "Whisper of Sin" now up!

I'm also excited to share the audiobook cover for Angels' Blood!

Thank you to Ducky for the heads-up on this. :-)

Random Thought

Why does it hurt so much when you bang your elbow against a (very) hard surface???

GH #3

I've been tormenting readers on my page at Facebook with random lines from the third Guild Hunter book, and I thought I'd post a line here today as well. Just call me an equal-opportunity torturer ;-)

(Remember, it's from a work in progress, so not final.)

Stripping off his shirt and boots, Illium held out his hand for one of Venom’s blades. Lips curving, Venom handed it over. “Sure you can handle me, pretty, pretty, Bluebell?”

Gosh, I wonder what's happening....*grin*

Angels' Pawn & RomCon

I know some of you have had issues with purchasing "Angels' Pawn" - if you haven't already, please shoot me an email (or leave a comment) noting the country you're trying to buy it from. Hopefully, we'll have the problem fixed soon.

Also, I'm attending RomCon in Denver this year (July 9-11th). Woohoo! The cool news is that the folks at RomCon are giving away 20 free tickets to the convention over at Dear Author.

Don't forget the Bonds of Justice ARC contest is open for entry!

Bonds of Justice ARC Contest

As you can see, you might have to fight for the ARC even if you
win ;-)

If you'd like to go in the random draw to win the ARC of Bonds of Justice, just leave your name in the comments before midnight, Friday April 30th 2010, New Zealand time.

If you have a problem commenting, email your entry to nalinisinghwrites AT gmail DOT
com with "Bonds of Justice ARC Contest" in the subject line, and I'll add you to the draw.

Since this is an Advanced Review Copy, if you win, I'd ask that you please post a review somewhere before the release date (July 6th) - on a blog, on Amazon, B&N,'s up to you, but it would be much appreciated if you'd post your thoughts somewhere. The contents of the review are, of course, totally up to you.

A note about the ARC - it's substantially the same as the final book, but since
ARCs are printed prior to the final round of edits, there are some errors in the text that aren't in the final book.

Also, make sure you leave some way for me to contact you, or check to see if you've won. I usually make an effort to track down winners, but because this is an ARC, if the winner does not contact me with their mailing address within 48 hours of their name being posted, I'll pick another name.

The fine print: Contest is open internationally. One entry per household. No purchase necessary to enter. Winner will be chosen randomly using and his or her name posted on the blog on May 3rd, 2010.
Void where prohibited.

Writing Update & Answers

I've entered all the changes I made to the printed out copy of the Guild Hunter #3 manuscript, and am now starting the next round of edits. Woohoo!

Also, I've seen a few questions come through in the comments, so I thought I'd answer the most frequently asked ones. (We'll do a proper Q&A session later in the year, after I'm out from under a couple of deadlines).

Will book 4 of the Guild Hunter series be about Elena and Raphael?

This is as yet undecided. I'll have more info after I complete and turn in GH #3.

How many more GH books will you write?

I'm contracted up to book 4 and a novella at this stage. The novella will be releasing late next year.

Will Ashwini and Janvier from Angels' Pawn make a return appearance?

Absolutely! I can't wait to write more about these two. (Ash has a scene in GH #3).

I'm currently entering changes that I made on a hard-copy draft of the third Guild Hunter book, into the computer file. About halfway through - hoping to get all the changes in by the end of tomorrow.

Hope you all had a good weekend. What did you all get up to?

Writing Update, Maya Banks & Links

I've sent off the galleys for Bonds of Justice and the copy edits for Whisper of Sin, and am now back at work on the third Guild Hunter book. Right now I'm working on a scene that features a certain "dance."

My friend Maya Banks' newest book, Sweet Tempation has just released! Maya writes super hot erotic romance, but always with a heart. I just love her voice.

This book is part of the series that began with Sweet Surrender and I'd recommend reading the series in order so you get a deeper sense of the relationships between the characters.

Compelling and intense, I have to admit Sweet Tempation pushed me past my comfort zone, but given that it is Micah's book, that was to be expected. I'm very much looking forward to seeing where Maya takes this series next.

Follow the links to read excerpts!


Also, I've just set up a Fan Page on Facebook, complete with a discussion forum, so check it out if you're on FB. (I'm still happy to accept friend requests for my personal page, too).


And check out this very funny post and giveaway by Devon Monk on Ilona Andrews' blog.

Lion's Heat - Lora Leigh

This book is awesome-sauce. That's all I have to say.

Okay, not really - like a lot of fans of the Breed books, I've been waiting for Jonas's book, and Lion's Heat lived up to all my expectations.

I won't say too much else as I don't want to spoil it for anyone, but I really think all you Jonas fans will love it.

If you haven't read this series, I wouldn't suggest starting with this one. The first mass market release was Megan's Mark and I think you can easily jump in at that point (that's how I began). However there are prior books in the series that originally came out in ebook format. You can see the complete chronology on Lora's site.
