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.

No Camy: Since I’m writing this on Monday for you East Coast people, it means I’m still writing, hoping to make my midnight deadline, which I don’t think I’m going to meet. But please keep praying for me! I might make it by midnight tomorrow night.

This was from my wedding4 1/2 years ago. This is my Grandma, and I'm wearing her grandmother's (I think it's her grandma's, maybe it's her great-grandma's) kimono.


  1. That is such a cool picture! The kimono is beautiful -- what a treasure!!

  2. Wow, Camy! How neat to wear such a treasured wedding kimono. I think it's so cool that you wore a traditional kimono. I LOVE traditions. BTW, your grandmother is a beautiful woman.

    P.S. You don't need to put me in for the book drawing. With the review site, I have a two foot high stack on my night stand. :o)

  3. It's always midnight SOMEWHERE in the world. Although I think the islands are the last place to turn, or so I remember hearing from Y2K. Good luck with the deadline.

    BTW I LOVE the kimono, very beautiful. How special to wear a family heirloom. That's really cool you got that opportunity. :)

  4. i love that pic!

    did you meet your deadline tonight? been praying for you

    love you!

  5. What a great pic!

    Speaking of pics, there's one on my blog you might like.:)

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

I joined Sweet Romance Reads!

I just joined Sweet Romance Reads, a group of authors who all write sweet romances in a variety of sub-genres. I’m friends with several of the authors from my days writing for Harlequin/Love Inspired, so it’s nice to be able to join their group. If you’re on Facebook, this is their Facebook page , and this is their Facebook group . I posted my introductory post yesterday on the Sweet Romance Reads blog (Blogger), where I listed three strange things about me.

Year of the Dog serial novel

About Year of the Dog : A month or two ago, I remembered an old manuscript I had completed but which hadn’t sold. It was a contemporary romance meant for Zondervan, titled Year of the Dog . The book had gone into the pipeline and I even got another title ( Bad Dog ) and a cover for it, but eventually my editor at the time decided she didn’t want to publish it, for various reasons. She instead requested a romantic suspense, and so I cannibalized some of the characters from Year of the Dog and thrust them into the next book I wrote, which was Protection for Hire . Honestly, I didn’t take a lot from Year of the Dog to put in Protection for Hire , aside from character names and a few relationship ties. I was originally thinking I’d post Year of the Dog as-is on my blog as a free read, but then it occurred to me that I could revamp it into a romantic suspense and change the setting to Hawaii. It would work out perfectly as (yet another) prequel to the Warubozu series and introduce
