Shamini Flint to publish thrillers with Little Brown UK

Just read in Publishing News that Emma Dunford of Piatkus Books, an independent imprint within the British publishing house Little Brown has bought 3 crime fiction titles by 35-year old Malaysian-Indian lawyer turned writer, Shamini Mahadevan-Flint. The thrillers will be released next year, starting with the first one in April. The publishing contract awarded to this Singapore-based mother of two is worth a five-figure sum.

Met Shamini in Singapore last year at the Writer's Festival and also made many good Singaporean acquaintances especially at the Symposium. Shamini is a stout believer in self-publishing and already has a number of children's books under her belt.

Congratulations, Shamini if you catch this. You deserve it. You're gorgeous!
