You’re probably going to laugh at me…

So many of you know—and if you don’t know, then go read the blurb about it—that Sushi for One? is about Lex Sakai, who’s a volleyball player.

Well, my husband and I played volleyball for years. In fact, I’d still be playing if I hadn’t torn my ACL twice. (Yeah, I learned my lesson, finally.)

Captain Caffeine is still playing co-ed volleyball in the Nikkei Volleyball League (Lex’s league in the book!) and needed a new ball. Well, guess what he suggested we do?





Now is this marketing or what?! My Marketing Director will be proud.

Any ideas you guys can think of that I should do to market this book without being a used car salesman about it?

  1. LOL! I LOVE the volleyball marketing, Camy! That's great!

  2. I love the volleyball!

    And I think you should market your book in any way you can or any way you want to. I don't think you'll be coming across as a used car salesman because you're not pushing, your marketing, just letting the folks know that it's out there on the shelves. (Well, gonna be out there.)

  3. Very cute! I agree with Delia...market it however and wherever you want to. You could use other people's blogs...that is big now...even readers are advertising/marketing for authors now on their blogs (myself included). I don't think it comes across as a used car salesman at all...it is marketing.

  4. I got the idea from watching "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby".

    NASCAR ain't got nothin' on us!!! :-)

  5. Huh. I guess those mindless-stupid-movies-that-I-can't-stand have some use after all.

  6. Too cool! Hey, how about making up t-shirts with some catchy phrase on it to make people ask you about it and then give them one of the bookmarks or something like that...or...what about setting up a table somewhere like in a mall or something and have some sushi samples with your bookmarks, chop sticks, post cards, posters or whatever you have all around you as advertisements, and maybe have a drawing for an autographed book or something?

  7. LOL! I love it!

    I can just see my hubby when I'm published. He'll probably go out and buy cowboy hats or something and hand them out with my books. LOL! Now that's an idea for me. Where's my pen and paper?

  8. Camy, what a great idea!

    My fledging marketing mind is spinning now since my series is about baseball players. I'd love to hear more about how you're marketing or how much you're marketing to women who love sports. We're a fast-growing market, for sure.

  9. I love the volleyball, too! That was a great idea!

  10. Foret the tee shirt. Give away one of those GORGEEEEOUS Asian outfits, like you wear--like the red, the black, or the blue ones I've seen pics of you in.

    I think it says 1. Female 2. Asian and 3. Stylish flair, which are elements of Asian Chick Lit, no?

    Of course, you'd have to find a place that makes it in a wide selection of sizes, so your FAT readers, like moi, could win, too. :D

    Or a delivery of a meal of sushi enough for ONE.

Year of the Dog serial novel, chapter 5

I’m posting a Humorous Christian Romantic Suspense serial novel here on my blog! Year of the Dog is a (second) prequel to my Warubozu Spa Chronicles series. Year of the Dog serial novel by Camy Tang Marisol Mutou, a professional dog trainer, is having a bad year. While renovating her new dog kenneling and training facility, she needs to move in with her disapproving family, who have always made her feel inadequate—according to them, a job requiring her to be covered in dog hair and slobber is an embarrassment to the family. She convinces her ex-boyfriend to take her dog for a few months … but discovers that his brother is the irate security expert whose car she accidentally rear-ended a few weeks earlier. Ashwin Keitou has enough problems. His aunt has just shown up on his doorstep, expecting to move in with him, and he can’t say no because he owes her everything—after his mother walked out on them, Aunt Nell took in Ashwin and his brother and raised them in a loving Christ

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
