Photos from the desert

I'm saying goodbye to Morocco today. Had such a fabulous time! Here are some photos from the desert trip - more to come as I get my gazillion photos sorted.

This first one was taken from the back of the vehicle that drove us to the edge of the Sahara Desert. You can see the orange/red dunes in the distance, as well as the desolate road. Seriously, you would not want to break down here!

This one is of the shadows we threw on the sands as we rode the camels in.

Passing camel caravan in the distance - we'd have looked the same to them!

Good News & Morocco: Fes

I just got some incredible news from my German publisher - Geheimnisvolle Berührung, the German translation of Heart of Obsidian, just hit #2 on the Spiegel bestseller list!!

Thanks to all of you who've supported this release! I'm so excited that you're loving this book. =)

In travel news, we totally broke the no-shopping rule today! (Made because we didn't want to go overboard with our luggage). Too many lovely things in the medina in Fes!

I'm traveling through Morocco at the moment! Such a fascinating country. Here's a shot I took while walking through a souk (market) in Rabat last night.

I hope you all have a great Monday! What're you planning for this week?

Adieu USA! See you soon, London :-)

Adieu USA! Thank you all for making this trip so much fun! We'd hoped to post up lots of photos but we'll be on a plane very soon, so I have my fingers crossed we can do it in the next week or so, as we continue our travels. Next stop is London :-)

Looking forward to my first ever signing in the UK!!

p.s. The copy edits of ARCHANGEL'S LEGION are almost complete, so you should have an excerpt in July/August. :-)

Twitter Reviews

Lucy Dosch @EBookObsessed Heart of Obsidian is amazing! Absolutely LOVE it!

Jessie Potts ‏@BookTaster If it's not in your calendar add Heart of Obsidian by @NaliniSingh It's one of my favorites from the series now!

Gabrielle ‏@gabbymaait Every time I finish a book by @NaliniSingh, I'm left speechless. Heart of Obsidian is my favourite in the Psy-Changeling series. So good

Mandi Schreiner ‏@smexybooks It's worthy of this. RT @mslizalou: I'm totally getting up at 1 am to read new @NaliniSingh book on Tuesday. Should be on my kindle by then.
