Save the Date - Camy's Patreon Launch

My Patreon will launch in 1 week! I took all the results of the poll and I have hopefully created fun and appealing tiers. About my Patreon: I'm trying something new for the next 6-7 months. If it works, I'll continue, but if I end up not liking it, I'll stop it in September or October. I will be starting a monthly subscription membership on a new Patreon account. I will be posting the chapters of my current book ( Lady Wynwood’s Spies, volume 7 ) so you can read ahead of when the ebook will be edited and published. My current plan is to post 1-2 chapters weekly. One reason I’m switching things up is that I want to get closer to my readers and build a tighter, more intimate community with you. You can comment on each chapter of my book, give a reaction, ask a question, or even correct mistakes. My books will become a dialogue with you. If you subscribe to my Patreon, you'll be charged monthly and have access to all the benefits for the tier you subscribe to. The

“All I’ve Ever Wanted” by Margaret Becker

I was writing to music and this song came up on my song mix. I have always loved it but I haven’t heard it in a while, and the lyrics impacted me strongly when I was listening to it again. This has been my prayer, that I would be so in love with Jesus that I want to give all of myself to Him. This is my prayer for you, too. “All I’ve Ever Wanted” by Margaret Becker From where I lay I can see the sun Rising through the trees Before I face this morning rush I get down on my knees I lift my eyes and thank You for This life you've granted me I pray that every day I live Your heart will be pleased I pray for hands that hold You Higher than anything else And a heart that loves You More than life itself This is all I've ever wanted This is all I want to be All I've ever wanted Is to love You faithfully From where I stand I can see the dreams That you have fulfilled Such kindness I did not deserve But You gave it still What do I have that You did not give

Review: The Tempestuous Petticoat

The Tempestuous Petticoat by Mary Ann Gibbs My rating: 5 of 5 stars I absolutely loved this book. I've liked most of Mary Ann Gibbs' historical novels, and this was no exception. The setting is interesting--Georgian England, set in the year 1794 at the tail end of the Terror. The heroine is strong, mature, independent without being pig-headed. I find I like these types of calm, controlled, strong women. The hero is masculine and an alpha-male without being overbearing, the perfect foil for her. The conflict between the heroine and her family was interesting and made me root for her even more. The last few chapters of the book are also amusing and romantic and I absolutely loved it. I can't say enough good things about this story. It just really resonated with me. View all my reviews

Review: The American Cousin

The American Cousin by Dawn Lindsey My rating: 5 of 5 stars Likeable characters, good plot. Some redundancy in writing, dialogue a little long-winded at parts, but overall, the books is entertaining and engaging. Darker issue of war horrors, good read. View all my reviews

Review: Once Touched, Never Forgotten

Once Touched, Never Forgotten by Natasha Tate My rating: 5 of 5 stars Really liked this book. Heroine is strong and mature, hero is alpha male but there are things he thinks and says that give him vulnerability without making him weak. There were a couple moments in the dialogue that were a little illogical but most of the time the conversation was refreshing, heated, and insightful. Sex scenes are very hot and on the more graphic end of most Presents I've read (just FYI in case that bothers you). Overall, highly enjoyable story. View all my reviews

New low prices on Nook Color and Tablet

In case you were looking for Christmas gift ideas ... I got my dad a Nook Color earlier this year for his birthday, and he loves it. He can check his email, play his video poker games (he downloaded a Nook app) and buy and read his science fiction ebooks. Dad used to read tons of science fiction--his favorite author is Alan Dean Foster. Mom said he hadn't been reading much before he got the Nook Color and now he's reading as much as he used to when he was younger. He said he's been pretty happy to get to download Alan Dean Foster's backlist books that he hadn't read yet. I got him the Nook Color because I guessed it would be easy to use even for my 70-something year old father, and it definitely is. Exciting new update from NOOK® at Barnes & Noble. Check out our lowest-ever pricing on our award-winning NOOK Tablet and NOOK Color devices in time for the holidays. NOOK Tablet, originally $179 is now available for only $159. NOOK Color, originally $149 is

Review: The Talisman

The Talisman by Dawn Lindsey My rating: 3 of 5 stars The story premise was great, and the conflict between the heroine and her family was terrific. However something about the dialogue between the hero and heroine in certain scenes didn't quite grab me--it was a little repetitive and lacked conflict and tension. Overall, an entertaining book.

Protection for Hire and Sushi series ebooks only $6.99 each!

Okay, so I’m not the most observant person, but I also don’t often go on Amazon to look at my books. I admit that I had a freakish addiction curiosity when I was first published, but then I got busy writing more books and now I only check Amazon occasionally rather than once an hour. So I didn’t notice until yesterday that the ebook versions of Protection for Hire and all my Sushi series books from Zondervan are now only $6.99! And not just on Kindle, but on Nook, iTunes, and Kobo, too! The last time I had looked, they were all still $9.99 or so. ( A Dangerous Stage is $8.99, which is still cheaper than the print copy price, $9.99. ) So if you didn’t have a copy of my Zondervan backlist and want one, $7 isn’t a bad price to pay for each of them, right?
