I'm still giving away lots of prizes to celebrate the release of Formula for Danger! Ongoing contests are:
Three free books for every batch of bookmarks you give away
A drawing for 12 winners of a cabernet sauvignon grape goat's milk soap + a free book
A drawing for a Christmas wall hanging made by my mom

And here's another giveaway for you guys:

Those of you who have read Formula for Danger remember Stephanie, the heroine's lab assistant, right? Stephanie has a fuzzy light blue scarf mentioned in the book (page 92).

Well, I have knitted Stephanie's scarf and now I'm offering it in a drawing for my Street Team members!

In addition to the scarf, you also get to pick a free book from my Street Team book list!

This is a light, luscious scarf in a diagonal lace pattern with garter stitch borders. The yarn is Patons Divine in a pretty Halo Blue color, a light blue that reminds me of paintings of angels. :)

If you are allergic to wool and/or mohair, please be aware that the yarn is 76.5% Acrylic - 10.5% Wool - 10.5% Mohair - 2.5% Polyester.

Care: Hand wash (just swish it in a sink with some shampoo--you can even take it in the shower with you if you're feeling extra lazy) and either lay flat to dry or hang to dry. Do not wash in the washing machine or dryer.

How to enter:

Either email me or Facebook me or leave a comment on this blog post about a person or place or event you left a Formula for Danger bookmark! Easy peasy!

Every Formula for Danger bookmark you give away and tell me about is one entry into the drawing for the scarf and free book!

Formula for Danger bookmarks: Some giveaways will require you to give away my Formula for Danger bookmark, so if you haven't given away your first 80 and don't have Formula for Danger bookmarks, either give away your bookmarks quick or email me and I can send you a few (although not as many as I would if you gave away your first 80 bookmarks).

I left a Formula for Danger bookmark in the dollar slot of a snack machine on my college's campus. You know how hungry college kids get, so I am sure it was discovered and rescued in no time haha! Also, I left FfD bookmark--along with the others--in front of some romance novels at a regular book store. I will send pics!

Ooh, I LOVE the stitch pattern there . . . that's with yarn overs?

I finally figured it out where to leave the bookmarks --libraries (and maybe bookstores). I saw a photo on Mrs. Tang's FB fan page that someone slipped their bookmarks in a library display covertly, but so far, I've gone to two different libraries that have Mrs. Tang's books and when I talked to the librarians, they were fine with me leaving bookmarks there . . . As long as it wasn't trying to "sell anything" like a business card, and since they had to do with books . . . =) One librarian said she had to check with the branch manager, but other than that, they've been cool with it! I usually say something like, "This is going to sound weird, but I noticed you have some of Camy Tang's books in your collection . . . " and ask if I can leave them some bookmarks to display . . . 'cause online there's a contest to see who can give out the most bookmarks, etc. Hope that helps you all --go Street Team! =)
If I remembered about these contests, I would have probably kept the "FfD" bookmarks to hand out individually (and some of the Sushi Series) . . . does giving one to the librarian and leaving some at the library count (total of two entries)?


P.S. - That's my address I put when I post on public blogs . . . I don't remember if I signed up for the Street Team with it though . . . I hope that's okay. =)

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

Daniel 9:9

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. Even if we have rejected you, you still reach out to us and want us to come to you for love and comfort and forgiveness. Thank you for your magnificent grace. Amen 主よ、 私たちが何をしようと、どこにいようと、私たちを憐れみ、赦してくださりありがとうございます。私たちが自分自身を愛することが難しいときでさえ、私たちをこんなにも愛してくださってありがとうございます。たとえ私たちがあなたを拒んだとしても、あなたは私たちに手を差し伸べ、愛と慰めと赦しを求めてあなたのもとに来ることを望んでくださいます。あなたの素晴らしい恵みに感謝します。 アーメン

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

Michael’s Scarf knitting pattern

Michael’s Gray and Brown Scarf I had just written a scene in Lady Wynwood’s Spies, volume 5: Prisoner where my character Michael gives the heroine a very significant scarf. When looking for a stitch pattern, I found the one used in “#31 Comfort either for a Lady or Gentleman” in The Lady's Assistant , volume 2 , published in 1842 by Mrs. Jane Gaugain, pages 125-126 (click on the link to view and/or download the free PDF of the digitally scanned book). When I did test swatches, it turned out to be a pretty eyelet pattern that looks like branches or vines winding upward. I tried the pattern as a parallelogram scarf and discovered that the pattern has a changeable orientation, looking vertical or diagonal depending on how you looked at it. So I decided to use this pattern, knitted as a parallelogram, as Michael’s scarf. I decided to use a smaller needle and add a slip stitch in the pattern to make the eyelets a bit more close and less lacy. When paired with a brown an
