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

More Like Falling in Love

Captain's Log, Stardate 12.21.2010 I’ve “fallen in love” with this song! I love the lyrics of the chorus, it totally describes what was like to fall in love with Jesus and give my heart to him. "More Like Falling in Love" By: Jason Gray and Jason Ingram From the album, Everything Sad is Coming Untrue Give me rules I will break them Give me lines I will cross them I need more than a truth to believe I need a truth that lives, moves, and breathes To sweep me off my feet It ought to be More like falling in love Than something to believe in More like losing my heart Than giving my allegiance Caught up, called out Come take a look at me now It's like I'm falling, oh It's like I'm falling in love Give me words I'll misuse them Obligations I'll misplace them 'Cause all religion ever made of me Was just a sinner with a stone tied to my feet It never set me free It's gotta be More like falling in love Than someth

Honolulu Marathon!

Captain's Log, Stardate 12.13.2010 I finished my very first marathon! And a huge thank you to everyone who prayed for me! I really felt those prayers! (See below.) My chip time was 7 hours, 13 minutes. (Chip time is the electronically tracked time using a chip I got that attached to my shoe. Every time I passed a special strip on the road, the sensor picked up my chip, which was registered to my race number and identification, and that’s how my time was posted on my Facebook wall—the company who does the whole chip thing has a program that posted my time on my Facebook whenever I passed a chip sensor strip. For some reason, when I passed the 10K mark, it didn’t post on my wall, but it posted at 13.1 miles and on.) We got to the starting line at 4:30 a.m. and the gun went off at 5 a.m., but I was so far in back that it took me about 10 minutes just to cross the start line. When I crossed the start line, my timing chip on my shoe recorded my start time, so my actual race time w

Captain's Log, Stardate 12.03.2010 Yes, one of these days I'll have enough time to get back into blogging again (probably after my first marathon on December 12th!) but until then, I'm working hard on my Street Team stuff.

Yay! I won NaNoWriMo

Captain's Log, Stardate 12.01.2010 I came in at 50,080 words as of around 8:30 pm on November 30th! I was working on my next manuscript for Zondervan, which is about a girl who is ex-Japanese mafia—she’s niece to the San Francisco yakuza boss and she goes to jail for a crime she didn’t commit. She finds Jesus in jail and now she’s out of prison, trying to walk the straight and narrow (and somehow find a job) with her uncle wanting her to work for him again and everybody else distrusting her because of her past. Cool, huh? It’ll be out next year in October. I don’t have a title yet, but I’ll post here when I do! Anyone else did NaNoWriMo? How'd you do? Tell me about your story!
