Awesome birthday cake!

Isn't this a fabulous cake?! Saiqa's sisters surprised her with it for her birthday. (The bottom book is Blaze of Memory).

I love it!!  Happy belated birthday to Saiqa. :-)

Website Maintenance

Edited to add: Completed!

You may experience some issues with the website this weekend - we're doing maintenance on it, and hopefully it'll be all smooth sailing, but if it's not, please be patient. I'll update this once the maintenance is complete. :-)

Archangel's Legion

I'm on the final stretch of Archangel's Legion! I may be a bit scarce on the interwebs in the coming few days as a result.

It's a long book (hovering around 115k at the moment) so I've had to be strict about which scenes make it in (don't worry, I saved the deleted ones to share later down the road), but sometime very late last night, I reversed a decision and put back a scene I'd originally taken out. Now I'm off to reread it and make sure it fits in seamlessly.

I'm loving the way this book has shaped up. Hoping to have an almost-done draft within the next couple of days. Wish me luck!

p.s. Aodhan fans - he's in this book quite a bit. You also get your first real look at Naasir. At last!

Friday Book Club

It's been a tough, sad week for many people, so I thought we'd open the Friday Book Club with a video that reminds us of all the goodness out there. 

And the book club is now open! What are you reading and loving at the moment? I'm consumed by Archangel's Legion. :-)

Psy-Changeling Series

Over on Facebook, we're having a discussion on favorite scenes from the Psy-Changeling series. I thought I'd post the question here, too, for those of you not on FB. What are your favorite scenes?

April Newsletter

The newsletter has been scheduled to go out in approximately an hour. It can take up to another hour to get it out to everyone's inboxes, so be patient. :)

If you don't have it in two hours, check your spam folder to make sure it's not in there, then email Ashwini and she'll check if your inbox is bouncing the newsletter. Her email is: naliniDOTassistantATgmailDOTcom and she's in the same timezone as me, so you'll have to wait a few hours while we catch some zzzz!

I hope you enjoy!

Clean and Dirty

Vaughn, the amber-gold of his hair dulled by the same dust, gave her a smile that was pure cat. "You look really clean."

"No.  Absolutely not." Laughing, she held out a hand in an attempt to halt the jaguar in human form who'd begun to stalk her, slow and silent.

- from "Clean and Dirty" the free short story going out with Tuesday's newsletter (U.S. time).

Sign up for the newsletter list on the front page of my website - top right corner, or on the sidebar of the blog, before Tuesday, to get it.

If you've already subscribed and clicked the confirmation in your email, you're all set.

Cover Love: Archangel's Legion

I love this cover so much!! The colors, the background, the fact Elena looks so badass! The artist is the fabulously talented Tony Mauro.

October 29th, 2013

Nalini Singh, the New York Times bestselling “alpha author of paranormal romance” (Booklist) returns to an immortal world of violent passion and lethal power…on the brink of a deadly archangelic war.
Angels are falling from the sky in New York, struck down by a vicious, unknown force.

Vampires are dying impossibly of disease.

Guild hunter Elena Deveraux and the Archangel Raphael must discover the source of the wave of death before it engulfs their city and their people, leaving New York a ruin and Raphael’s Tower under siege by enemy archangels.

Yet even as they fight desperately to save the city, an even darker force is stirring, its chill eyes trained on New York…and on Raphael. Rivers of crimson and nightmares given flesh, the world will never again be the same…

Ireland: Curious Pony

I just wanted to pick this little guy up and put him in my pocket. (Somehow, I don't think NZ Customs would've been impressed!).

Waterford Crystal Showroom, Ireland

I've been bad about posting photographs from my travels, but I have a ton of them ready to go so you'll be getting several in the coming weeks.

This is from the Waterford Crystal Showroom, in Waterford Ireland. They had the most incredible creations there! I walked very, very, very carefully around the room...

Also, if you missed my big announcement yesterday, here's the link to it. :-)
