ARCHANGEL’S LIGHT Virtual Book Release Party with Nalini Singh

If you missed our recent virtual party with Nalini Singh on Thursday 28 October to celebrate the release of ARCHANGEL’S LIGHT, the recording is available at:  https://bit.ly/3ERvkZK  Passcode: 7h?GBhQS

Order a Personalised Signed Copy of ARCHANGEL’S LIGHT by Nalini Singh

ARCHANGEL’S LIGHT by NALINI SINGH (Book 14: Guild Hunter series) is available at a special price of NZ$20 (RRP NZ$24.99) plus shipping for the NZ Edition (ISBN 9781473231467) while our initial stocks last. Please contact us if you wish to order a personalised signed copy, including any international orders.

Order Personalised Signed Book by Nalini Singh

The Chapter Book and Tea Shop is able to organize personalised signed copies of Nalini Singh’s titles that are available in print – New Zealand/International editions, USA editions and print-on-demand editions – in the Psy/Changeling, Psy/Changeling Trinity, Guild Hunter, Rock Kiss and Hard Play series as well as the standalone thrillers. We usually expect a signing to take around 1-5 working days to organize; and then shipping time should be added to that (currently international shipping is slower than normal). Please contact us if you wish to order a personalised signed copy, including any international orders.

General Book Orders

We have too many books to include on this web site, so please contact us today if you wish to order a book or if you’d like to receive our bi-monthly catalogue by email.

You can also purchase a small selection of our books (usually a diverse mixture of new releases, popular authors, and clearances) on Trade Me Books and on Fishpond.

Please note that, effective October 2017, we discontinued our book loyalty card scheme and replaced it with lower average retail prices. Any existing stamped book cards are being cashed up.
