Blog book giveaway:

You can still enter both giveaways. Just post a comment on each of those blog posts. On Thursday, I'll draw the winner for PINK and post the title for another book I'm giving away.

Coming soon: I have a HUGE giveaway planned for mid-September through December 31st! Terrific prizes and lots of chances to win! Stay tuned!

In the meantime, join my newsletter Yahoogroup for contest bonuses (hint, hint)and the latest news!

And I just know you haven’t had enough... I posted more book reviews (below). Two chick-lits and a women’s fiction.

A GIRL’S BEST FRIEND by Kristin Billerbeck
EMILY EVER AFTER by Anne Dayton and May Vanderbilt
JADE by Marilynn Griffith


Writing: I posted another synopsis writing tip on my Story Sensei blog.

Diet: I am such a lazy butt. I only did one exercise program this morning because I started feeling nauseated in the middle of the second one. Not sure why. My stomach has been sensitive lately.

My shortbread was a hit at Bible study. I'm going to try making another batch (later) with half the amount of butter and see how that goes. If that works, I'll try ¼ butter and ¼ canola oil to see if that flies. Or do you guys think I should substitute applesauce? Does that really work?


  1. Hey Camy, at least you're exercising every day. Great job! Don't be too hard on yourself:)

    PS. Applesauce sounds better than canola oil, but I'm still a big butter fan. Every thing is better with butter.

  2. warning warning will robinson--- no applesauce in the shortbread;)

    Fine in cakes and muffins- but the water (in applesauce) versus fat (butter) doesn't work in cookie/crumbly type things- turns out with a weird texture.

    stick with butter- or half butter half butter substitute.. I like Smart Balance;)

    then send me some;)
