What do you guys think?


Kassiani said…
Uhm. She doesn't look very Japanese to me. Maybe you could pass her off as one to North American readers, but I'd say she looks more Viet or Chinese-Thai. ;)

Camy Tang said…
You can tell? I'm hopeless. I took a test once where they gave pictures of a whole bunch of Asians and you had to say what ethnicity they were, and I totally failed. My mom, on the other hand, did terrific. She told me I was pathetic.
Kassiani said…
Oh, that test. I scored nearly perfect on that, but then I'm an Asian living in Asia. lol

Generally Japanese have more aquiline features - higher cheekbones and nose bridges in comparision to Koreans or Chinese, and their complexions are fairer. ;)
Winter Peck said…
Okay aside from not looking Japanese, I love the cover. Course I'd buy it just 'cause it's you!
Ruth said…
Okay, even if she's not Japanese I LOVE YOUR COVER!!! Totally and completely awesome, gorgeous, and fabulous!!

The woman on the cover doesn't look japanese but the book cover is awesome!! Beautiful colors and nice design.
Missy Tippens said…
I love it, Camy!!! And how exciting to finally see it!!

Whether she looks Japanese or not (I couldn't tell), she's beautiful! And I love the Sushi Service logo. That's great!! Also the tag line--kick of wasabi. All around great! Colors, too.

Of course, the best part is seeing "Camy Tang" on there. :)

Deborah said…
oh i love the cover! it looks so different from most christian fiction books (in a good way!)

although i have to agree that she doesn't really look japanese either. maybe you can get the girl from babel, Rinko Kikuchi, to pose for the cover. SHE looks japanese. on the other hand, i took that asian quiz too and i failed it. i can't tell my Chinese from my Koreans.

blahhhh i'm still in shock that i won....

Oh, I'm so excited for you. It looks great to me, whiter-than-white Danish-American!

I can't wait to read it.
Tyora Moody said…
The cover is beautiful! Either way it will definitely stand out on the book shelf.
Carol M said…
I couldn't tell either. I just know that it's a great cover!
Hmm, looks Japanese to me :-) But I live in the mountains of Arizona where the Asian populations is like 4.

I LOVE the cover! I would definitely pick this up in the store!
Scrambled Dregs said…
Great cover. Like the Mona Lisa type smile.
Mary Connealy said…
I think it's great, Camy. This cover just draws your eyes. Great expression on her face, excellent, colors, too. They did a great job for you. I love it.

That cover is totally hip and soooo today!!!

Good going, girlfriend! Yowza!!!

But I do think it looks very cool, chick lit and it should attract a lot of readers. And that's the idea, right? Congrats!
Sarah said…
I LOVE the cover - the colors and type are gorgeous!
PatriciaW said…
Love the cover -- the photo, the model, the colors. However, if she really doesn't look Japanese--and I'm ashamed to say I wouldn't know--is there any chance the publisher could find a different model? If not, then maybe for the next book in the series.

I love it too! Could have fooled me, don't sweat it. :O)

I've always liked your line, "with a kick of wasabi"...that is priceless, and my favorite condiment for steak!

Congrats on such a nice cover!
Tiffany said…
I luuurrrve the cover! The red cover just screams out at me to look at it :) I really want to read your book!
Miriam Pauline said…
Looks Awesome Camy! Congratulations!
Myra Johnson said…
Stupendous! Classy! You rock, Camy!

I think she's gorgeous and it looks AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And how cool is it to see your name on the cover? Dish, girlfriend!
Anonymous said…
Ssssssaaaassssssyyy. At least you get to see her entire face. ; ) Oh, and Camy Tang needs to be bigger. Much bigger.
Dona Watson said…
It's beautiful!!!! Congratulations!
Shauna said…
AWESOME COVER!! I wouldn't know if she looks Japanese or not, but I do love her saucy, sassy look! How fun. Even if I didn't know you wrote it, the cover alone would entice me to pick up the book and take a second look. :-)

It looks awesome - and I'm so thrilled for you!
Sheryl said…
I love the cover Camy! It's very bold, and I think her facial expression and attitude are perfect for the title.

It would definitely make me pick it up in the bookstore. And it must be so exciting to see your name on a book cover!! It's exciting for me, so I know it must be exciting for you :-) I can't wait to read it.

BTW, I got a tea shipment from Republic of Tea today. Couldn't help but think of you, my tea buddy, when I opened it :-)

Julie Carobini said…
whoo-hoo, don't you just love it?
I do!
I think the cover looks great. I'm ashamed to say I can't tell the difference between Asians...
Jolene said…
Really gorgeous cover, Camy!
Meljprincess said…
It's beautiful, Camy! I'm bummed I wasn't a book winner. Or an honorable mention. *g*
Pam Hillman said…
Absolutely gorgeous cover, Camy! But since she's not Japanese-looking enough, let Ruthy pose next time. Then we can all say she's not authentic enough. lol

I love the wispy bangs hanging down...reminds me of black chopsticks!

ooohh.....and Camy, *you've* got a new pic too!

Congrats, girl!

I LOVE the book cover! I can't wait to read this and your new picture at the top is terrific. :)

Oh, how exciting! I love your cover! Can't wait to see it on the shelves!

I like the cover though I think I must agree that she doesn't look very Japanese. I guess we're more easily used to mixtures of races and nationalities and that makes us less sensitive to the real differences. And they finally chose "Sushi for One?" as the title and gave the child a name. I wish we didn't have to wait so long.

I love your new picture too.

Interview with Tamara Leigh

Captain's Log, Stardate 03.13.2006 Multi-published Tamara Leigh has shifted from Medieval romances to chick-lit! Her newest book is STEALING ADDA published by NavPress. It had been a long time since New York Times best-selling author -- and historical romance writer extraordinaire -- Adda Sinclaire had experienced more than a fictional dose of romance, but when publisher Nick Farnsworth walks into her life, everything changes. Life for Adda ironically reads more like a country song than a bodice-bursting, breathless affair. For starters, she has no actual romance in her life. That might have something to do with the fact that her husband -- correction-EX husband -- ran off with Stick Woman, whom everyone knew would never be more than a mid-list author anyway. To add insult to injury (and another verse to the country song), he not only took their dog but gave it to her. If this isn't enough, Adda's come down with a horrible case of writer's block and finds h


Source: via Camy on Pinterest In-N-Out, one of my fav burger joints, makes an appearance in the first chapter of A Dangerous Stage . It's a chain on the West Coast and Hawaii, I'm not sure how far east they have restaurants. They don't freeze any of their food, it's all fresh, including the buns and the french fries. When you order, you can see them use this french fry hand-crank machine to make their fries, it's pretty cool. The specific restaurant in A Dangerous Stage doesn't exist at that location, but there's a couple of them near me and I go there way too often than is good for me, but it's oh-so-yummy!

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

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 introduc

Dear Lord, Thank you for being so merciful and forgiving to us no matter what we’ve done or where we’ve been. Thank you for loving us so much, even when we find it hard to love ourselves.

Grace Livingston Hill romances free to read online

I wanted to update my old post on Grace Livingston Hill romances because now there are tons more options for you to be able to read her books for free online! I’m a huge Grace Livingston Hill fan. Granted, not all her books resonate with me, but there are a few that I absolutely love, like The Enchanted Barn and Crimson Roses . And the best part is that she wrote over 100 books and I haven’t yet read them all! When I have time, I like to dive into a new GLH novel. I like the fact that most of them are romances, and I especially appreciate that they all have strong Christian themes. Occasionally the Christian content is a little heavy-handed for my taste, but it’s so interesting to see what the Christian faith was like in the early part of the 20th century. These books are often Cinderella-type stories or A Little Princess (Frances Hodgson Burnett) type stories, which I love. And the best part is that they’re all set in the early 1900s, so the time period is absolutely fasci
