Blog book giveaway:
To enter, go to the blog links below and post a comment there.
My Monday book giveaway is Thanks for the Mammogram! AND Reconstructing Natalie, both by Laura Jensen Walker.
My Thursday book giveaway is Hot Flashes and Cold Cream by Diann Hunt.
You can still enter both giveaways. On Monday, I'll draw the winners for the Laura Jensen Walker books and post the title for another book I'm giving away.

Pick my title! I’m still holding a poll for the title of my book! Go to this blog post to cast your vote!

Writers’ retreat: I’m the luckiest girl in the world. Why? Because today, me and Dineen Miller are going to a Marriott hotel to hole ourselves up and write. It’ll be an intense writing session until we check out Sunday morning.

The doubly cool thing is that this Marriott hotel is supposedly just like the one in Dallas, where we stayed during the ACFW conference last month. Those beds were heavenly.

So I’ll be back Sunday afternoon, and hopefully will have most of the revisions done by then! Please pray for me!


Diet: Yesterday I did NOT exercise (bad Camy) but I did pretty good in terms of low fat intake and more balanced carb intake.

Today, I’m hoping I’ll be able to take an hour off and go to the gym at the hotel, but we’re also bringing snacks to fortify ourselves. The exercise might be like trying to bail water from the Titanic.


  1. Hope your weekend is wonderful! Praying for productive writing/revision time (and some fun as well).

  2. sooo? how much did you get done? you're a total bum for hanging with D like that without me!! oh but wait... we'll hang in a little over a month! :o)

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

Camille Elliot's August newsletter

My Camille Elliot (Christian Regency Romantic Suspense) newsletter went out last week, but in case you missed it, you can click on the link below to read it. In my newsletter this month, I link to my blog post about the noble titles in my Lady Wynwood’s Spies series, including Lady Wynwood’s title and that of Lady Aymer and Mr. Ackett’s father, Lord Ammler. I also posted a link to my “Ghetto Gongfu” blog post, which is for beginners who might want to try gongfu tea brewing but don’t want to spend a lot of money on equipment.
