Lady Wynwood #7 early release Kickstarter

I worked on my first Kickstarter and it got approved! It’s for the Special Edition Hardcover of Lady Wynwood’s Spies, volume 1: Archer and the release of Lady Wynwood’s Spies, volume 7: Spinster. I contacted my graphic designer about the Special Edition Hardcover of vol. 1: Archer—it’s going to be SO beautiful! The Kickstarter focuses on the Special Edition Hardcover, but it’ll also include vol. 7: Spinster so that it’ll sort of be like a launch day for vol. 7, too. A third special thing that’ll be in the Kickstarter is Special Edition Paperbacks of all the books in the series. They won’t be available in stores, just in the Kickstarter (and later, from my website, and also in my Patreon book box tiers if I decide to do them). The Kickstarter is not live yet, but you can follow it to be alerted when it has launched. (You may need to create a free Kickstarter account.) Follow Camy’s Kickstarter

Spinning! And not just my wheels...

Captain's Log, Stardate 02.25.2010 Hey gang! I'm over at Faithchicks talking about spinning! And before you roll your eyes at me, I really do have a point. :) Camy here! I just recently got into spinning yarn. Yup! As in, sheep wool into yarn. With a drop spindle. I’m going waaaaaaaaay old school! Click here to read the rest of the post!

Interview and excerpt - A VALENTINE’S WISH by Betsy St. Amant

Captain's Log, Stardate 02.22.2010 A Valentine’s Wish by Betsy St. Amant Unless youth pastor Andy Stewart finds a suitable wife fast, he'll lose his job. Yet the woman of his dreams is his best friend. And Lori Perkins is still smarting over a failed engagement, so he can't just declare his love. His plan: he'll be her secret admirer and woo her anonymously with flowers and chocolates. And then, when romance is on her mind, Andy will confess his Valentine's wish—to spend his life with her. There's just one little problem. Lori seems to think her secret admirer is someone else! Excerpt of chapter one: Unemployed. Single. And out of brownie mix. Lori Perkins tapped her nails against the open pantry door. Canned vegetables and peanut butter crackers were nowhere near sufficient for this kind of low. She rested her forehead against the frame and blew a strand of dark hair out of her eyes. It really wasn't her fault—well, maybe two of the three probl

Excerpt - Beneath A Southern Sky by Deborah Raney

Stop spamming me!

Captain's Log, Stardate 02.18.2010 No, I do not want to meet a Russian girl, nor do I want to be electric in bed. I am probably already taking more prescription meds than is good for me, so your “cheep Rx” does not appeal. I don’t even know what a “pilules” is and I doubt it has to do with me since I think I’m missing a vital body part for that to work. My name is not “Mr. camys_loft” and really, that could be insulting in some countries. I know exactly what I have ordered and I don’t appreciate you telling me about a bogus order notification that will probably only download a virus onto my computer. You are probably ruining the brand-new computers of poor little old ladies. Shame on you. You are a dummy if you think that if I get a message with a subject line of “hello” and the recipient is someone whose email address I don’t recognize, that I will blithely open your message. Even though my last name is “Tang,” if I get a message with Chinese characters in the subjec

Excerpt - FATAL BURN by Roxanne Rustand

Fatal Burn by Roxanne Rustand Someone's after Kris Donaldson, and they don't just want her hurt—they want her ruined. First, an arsonist tries to destroy her cabin, and evidence points to Kris. Then an injured deputy is found at her place…with ballistics proof that he was shot with her rifle. Even Trace Randall, the arson investigator who's helped her before, seems to doubt her now. She has to prove her innocence, but how? Her reputation, her life—and her chance for happiness with Trace—are all on the line. Excerpt of chapter one: Kris Donaldson gripped the unfamiliar set of keys and stared down the winding lane leading to Wind Hill Ranch. It held at least a foot of snow, though far less than the heavy snowpack out in the open areas. Dusk had crawled over the rugged Montana landscape during the long drive from Battle Creek, but she'd been caught up in her disturbing memories and hadn't noticed the fading light. And now, with more snow falling and narrow,


Captain's Log, Stardate 02.10.2010 Hey guys, So yeah, I've been offline lately. Been busy. Teaching an online class on synopsis writing and working on a new proposal. And no, I can't tell you yet. But every so often I'm on Twitter and Facebook , so be sure to check out my Twitter feed (it's also on the right sidebar) or find me on Facebook. Lately, all I've been tweeting is my shock at finding so many gray hairs all of a sudden...and I don't even have children as my excuse for having so many. Then again, Captain Caffeine says I'm the reason he has so many gray hairs, but I know he's just kidding because he had tons of gray hair when I first met him. Or at least, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
