Praying for our enemies

Captain’s Log, Supplemental

I apologize this post is late—the power went out last night before I could finish posting.

Blog book giveaway:
My Monday book giveaway is JADE by Marilynn Griffith.
My Thursday book giveaway is SQUAT by Taylor Field.
You can still enter both giveaways. Just post a comment on each of those blog posts. On Monday, I'll draw the winner for JADE and post the title for another book I'm giving away.

Prayer: My friend Danica came up with the most fabulous idea of starting a blog to pray for our enemies.

Yup, you read that right.

She was inspired by Philip Yancey’s new book. There’s a great quote that I want to copy here:

"God loves his enemies," concludes Bonhoeffer; "that is the glory of his love." We defeat our enemies by loving them, and prayer activates that love.

Here’s the blog post that explains her thoughts on this, and here’s the blog she set up to pray for our enemies.


I am finishing my Marketing Info sheet tonight. It’s almost done. Cheryl called me last night to ask if she needed to mail me “something dead.” I might be able to expect a grasshopper in gruesome pieces in my mailbox in a few days.

Diet: I hate exercising. I really don’t feel the inclination for it when I get up in the morning. I didn’t exercise yesterday, so I really need to get on the ball today. After I blog. Or maybe after I eat. Or maybe after I check e-mail, in case something life-shattering happened.


  1. Camy, reading your blog everyday finally got me off my butt to get back to exercising. Ran with the dog today instead of walking. Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. Hi Camy,

    Can you add a link on your page
    for the enemyprayerblog?
    Danica, that is a great idea.
    I know, normally, it'd be too
    easy to not pray for enemies.

    Thanks, Ann

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
