One Writer’s Success

TVNZ aired their in-depth interview with Nalini Singh this weekend, and you can now view the broadcast online here. It’s a great inside look at her career, following her on her book tour and taking viewers inside her home office and library, as well as talking a bit about her background.

For those of you interested in chatting with Nalini, she’s going to be part of the Royal House of Shadows chat over at The Knight Agency’s chat room this coming Thursday, September 29, at 9 pm ET. Nalini will be on hand with Gena Showalter, Jill Monroe, and Jessica Andersen, and together they will discuss the four-book continuity they have written for Harlequin Nocturne. More details available on the TKA blog.

Which means that it’s a new week and there is much to be done, including finally posting the growing collection of fun links I’ve amassed. Too many tabs and Firefox starts getting confused. So here you go. Enjoy!
