Almost finished with edits!

Captain’s Log, Supplemental

I’m actually in the final stretch of finishing my first round of revisions on book 2 in the Sushi Series, which I think is going to be called Only Uni. I’ll finish in a few hours and get this emailed to my macro editor by the end of the day.

(Hear that Rachelle? End of the day. Before midnight, so it’ll arrive before it turns into April 21st, which is on time, right? Right? ☺)

As I was doing revisions, some parts still made me laugh. I think that’s a good thing, especially since I’ve gone through this manuscript a few times by now. Hopefully my readers (you guys!) will get my humor and laugh, too.

And if you don’t laugh, I think I’m going to cry. A part of me wants people not to tell me if they don’t like my book. Isn’t that kind of pathetic?

However, I don’t think I’m alone. I can’t imagine any writer really wanting to know if someone thinks their book sucks Lemonheads.

Maybe it’s part of the step into real Writerhood, and I just don’t want to grow up.


I think I’m going to submit this into the Writer … Interrupted Carnival and see what other writers think.

Come visit the Carnival on Monday, April 23rd!


  1. I bet even Karen Kingsbury dislikes hearing that someone hated one of her books!

    Glad your revisions are almost done!

  2. Us? Not getting your humor? Not laughing with you? Not liking your book?



    : )

    And yep, 11:59 pm is making your deadline!!! Congrats, girl!!

  3. Hey Camy ~ just listened to your interview on Zondervan's website, thanks to Donna!!! Was great to hear you talk about the books. And, I loved it so remember that ;-)

  4. Camy, just so you can stop sweating it... your revisions are awesome.

    Have a great day!

  5. Hey, Rachelle says your great so don't sweat it! :)

    I know what you mean Camy. I've dreamed of my book coming out for months now and the closer I get, the more nervous I am.

    I can't wait for your book. I have truly been looking forward to your book's release for a long time. I feel since we were contracted around the same time, I've sort of been on this journey with you!

    Many blessings!

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 .

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
