A Madness of Sunshine

My debut thriller releases at the end of this year and I'm beyond excited to share the blurb and cover with you today! (There are absolutely no paranormal elements in this book - I want to make that clear so you're not disappointed. But if you like a little noir with your mystery, check it out.)

This GORGEOUS cover is by the incredibly talented Rita Frangie, Senior Art Director of Berkley.

A Madness of Sunshine 
Nalini Singh 

New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh welcomes you to a remote town on the edge of the world where even the blinding brightness of the sun can’t mask the darkness that lies deep within a killer…

On the rugged West Coast of New Zealand, Golden Cove is more than just a town where people live. The adults are more than neighbors; the children, more than schoolmates.

That is until one fateful summer—and several vanished bodies—shatters the trust holding Golden Cove together. All that’s left are whispers behind closed doors, broken friendships, and a silent agreement not to look back. But they can’t run from the past forever.

Eight years later, a beautiful young woman disappears without a trace, and the residents of Golden Cove wonder if their home shelters something far more dangerous than an unforgiving landscape.

It’s not long before the dark past collides with the haunting present and deadly secrets come to light.

USA/Canada: December 3rd (Ebook, hardcover, audio)

Covers Coming Soon

Some cool cover news. Unexpectedly, I have two covers near reveal stage at the same time. My debut thriller cover will be coming this week (!!) and the ARCHANGEL'S WAR cover will be ready for the April newsletter. (The GH covers generally take longer to finalize because of the artwork, and this one is just astonishing.) I can't wait to share both covers with you. :-)

Comfort Reads

Let's talk comfort reads today. For me, a comfort read is a hug in book form, a cozy blanket to wrap around me, a visit with friends. 

What are your most treasured comfort reads? ❤️

Christchurch, New Zealand

Most of you will be aware of the terrible event that happened in Christchurch yesterday. So many people lost their lives and so many are fighting for theirs. As a country, New Zealand is in mourning. To know such hate could come here, to this kind and gentle country, it's shaken us all down to the core. Each and every one of us is thinking of the people most directly affected and doing what we can to help, even if all we can do is donate funds to help the survivors.
I'm going to quote words spoken by our Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern here, because she speaks for all NZ when she says: "...we were not a target because we are a safe harbour for those who hate. We were not chosen for this act of violence because we condone racism, because we’re an enclave for extremism, we were chosen for the very fact that we are none of these things, because we represent diversity, kindness, compassion, a home for those that share our values, a refuge for those who need it. And those values, I can assure you, will not and cannot be shaken by this attack."
At times like this, it's hard to know what to on blogs like this, where it's all about celebrating something we love - reading and books. It can feel frivolous to talk books when such a terrible event has occurred. But the thing with terrorists is that they want us to stop doing what we love. They want to make us afraid. They want us to focus on them. We're not going to do that.
This blog will continue to run with posts celebrating what we love, will continue to be a friendly and safe place where we uplift each other. Books are a haven for many of us, and we're not going to let that be taken away by those who would spread darkness in the world.
With all my love to all of you. ❤️

Paying it Forward Recipients

Thank you all the NZ based writers who wrote in for my Pay It Forward initiative. I received far more emails than I expected, and it was incredibly difficult for me to make a decision - I wish I could send all of you to the RWNZ conference. As it was, I crunched the numbers and decided I could send two people. Both of this year's recipients have been notified. If you aren't one of them, please do try again next year. In the meantime, I hope you continue to nurture your writing dreams, and remember - while conferences are wonderful learning opportunities, there are also small writers groups throughout the country, as well as active groups online, where you can start to build your writing tribe. ❤️
