Captain’s Log, Stardate 05.17.2006

Blog book giveaway:
My Thursday book giveaway is THE PREACHER’S DAUGHER by Lyn Cote
My Monday book giveaway is BLIND DATES CAN BE MURDER by Mindy Starns Clark.
You can still enter both giveaways. Just post a comment on each of those blog posts. On Thursday, I'll draw the winner for THE PREACHER’S DAUGHTER and post the title for another book I'm giving away. Stay tuned.

I’m done. At the beginning of the year, I made a goal of three books this year. That’s four months per book.

I started this manuscript January 15th. I finished in the wee hours of May 17th, so it took me about four months, a day and a few hours.

Yay me. I’m going to bed now.

Yes, this is the espresso maker on the right, and a professional coffee grinder on the left. By the espresso maker, I mean the one I promised to my long-suffering husband if I got a book contract, as a reward for letting me quit my biotech job and write full-time.


  1. You go, novelist girl! SO COOL!!! Three books a year. Wow.

    May God give you tons and tons of wonderful words and stories to share with us all.

  2. Yay, Camy! We all knew you could do it!

  3. Yea Camy! I can't wait to read it! When does your book come out?

  4. WOOHOOOO You rock!!!! I'm so glad you're done with it!!! I'm proud of you, girl!

    Wow... that's a cool espresso maker!

  5. Congratulations! That is awesome...not to mention inspiring, how you've set and are achieving your goals! :)

  6. Woo Hoo! Good job! Now get some sleep, then get up and celebrate!

  7. Hurray! Yeah, Camy! Congratulations!

    Great going, Camy. More power to you for trusting God.

    I should probably prayerfully set some goals for myself. I definitely need to. But something always comes up that takes me totally of course--like a 15-page Word questionnaire that I *know* I saved but don't know where it went. Now I have to do it all over again. And these weren't one or two word answers. After 10 days of searching high and low in the computer, I think it's time to give up and do it again. Sigh! That's what brought on all the severe pain in my hand in the first place.

    Wow. I take it your husband likes espresso coffee? That's an awesome machine that you've got there. I can't even make simple coffee let alone use something like that.

  8. I would LOVE to win one of your books! I found your blog through a link at CW0 - enjoyed browsing your blog. I would love you to visit my website at and my blog at
    You sound like you have a busy, happy, blessed life too! tfs!
    Congrats on your book!

  9. Way to go, Camy! Can't wait to see these books in print. I hope you get caught up on your rest and take a breather before you jump in to the next book.

  10. Goals? Oh yeah. We did talk about them at the beginning of the year ......

    Woo-hoo!!! Welcome to the land of the deadlings. (A word first coined by the infamous Brandilyn Collins.)

    Love ya, lady!! Enjoy that espresso!!
    : )

  11. Congrats on finishing!
    Now, is that finishing, as in ready to go in the mail finishing?? I wish I was at that point!!!
    But I have been very busy this week with my sister, and agents and editors be damned, I'll take this time over getting my manuscript done any day!!
    I LOVE having a sister :)

  12. Go Camy!

    Each day I think I'm done and I found more to do. How do you know you're DONE?

  13. Yay, Camy! We knew you could do it!

    And waaaaaaayyyyyyyy cool espresso machine.

  14. HUGE CONGRATS, CAMY!!! You rock!

    p.s. what did you get yourself?

  15. Yay Camy!!! We knew you could do it. Can't wait to read it. Can't wait to see the cover. Oh, I'm getting chills thinking about it. LOL!

Year of the Dog serial novel, chapter 5

I’m posting a Humorous Christian Romantic Suspense serial novel here on my blog! Year of the Dog is a (second) prequel to my Warubozu Spa Chronicles series. Year of the Dog serial novel by Camy Tang Marisol Mutou, a professional dog trainer, is having a bad year. While renovating her new dog kenneling and training facility, she needs to move in with her disapproving family, who have always made her feel inadequate—according to them, a job requiring her to be covered in dog hair and slobber is an embarrassment to the family. She convinces her ex-boyfriend to take her dog for a few months … but discovers that his brother is the irate security expert whose car she accidentally rear-ended a few weeks earlier. Ashwin Keitou has enough problems. His aunt has just shown up on his doorstep, expecting to move in with him, and he can’t say no because he owes her everything—after his mother walked out on them, Aunt Nell took in Ashwin and his brother and raised them in a loving Christ

No Cold Bums toilet seat cover

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.22.2008 I actually wrote out my pattern! I was getting a lot of hits on my infamous toilet seat cover , and I wanted to make a new one with “improvements,” so I paid attention and wrote things down as I made the new one. This was originally based off the Potty Mouth toilet cover , but I altered it to fit over the seat instead of the lid. Yarn: any worsted weight yarn, about 120 yards (this is a really tight number, I used exactly 118 yards. My suggestion is to make sure you have about 130 yards.) I suggest using acrylic yarn because you’re going to be washing this often. Needle: I used US 8, but you can use whatever needle size is recommended by the yarn you’re using. Gauge: Not that important. Mine was 4 sts/1 inch in garter stitch. 6 buttons (I used some leftover shell buttons I had in my stash) tapestry needle Crochet hook (optional) Cover: Using a provisional cast on, cast on 12 stitches. Work in garter st until liner measures
