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

Doctor Geoffrey Whelan was in Japan when the tsunami hit, killing his cousin and grandmother.

Now that they are working together again in a clinic in Sonoma, she fights her attraction towards him because his confident, forceful personality reminds her too much of her abusive ex-boyfriend, who called himself a Christian. She has been steering clear of her handsome coworker—until Asian hit men

Cry Out to Jesus

For those of you who might be having a hard time this Christmas, here’s one of my favorite songs. It was actually the theme song to my book, Treacherous Intent , because of the trauma the hero was going through after he came back from Afghanistan. "Cry Out To Jesus" by Third Day To everyone who's lost someone they love Long before it was their time You feel like the days you had were not enough when you said goodbye And to all of the people with burdens and pains Keeping you back from your life You believe that there's nothing and there is no one Who can make it right There is hope for the helpless Rest for the weary Love for the broken heart There is grace and forgiveness Mercy and healing He'll meet you wherever you are Cry out to Jesus, Cry out to Jesus For the marriage that's struggling just to hang on They lost all of their faith in love They've done all they can to make it right again Still it's not enough For the on

Prelude for a Lord - names part 5 Lucy

This is continuing my series explaining how I came up with the weird (and not so weird) names of my characters in Prelude for a Lord . Alethea’s half-sister, Lucy Purcell Actually … there’s no special meaning for Lucy’s surname. It sounded like a last name for a country woman seduced by Alethea’s father, and it wasn’t the name of any real-life peers. Alethea’s father, the 7th Earl of Trittonstone, had an affair with a local woman, Hannah Purcell, a seamstress, just before he married Alethea’s mother. Hannah had Alethea’s half-sister, Lucy, only a few months before Alethea was born. Most of the village tried to shun Hannah, but she was the finest seamstress in the county, and the less affluent women grudgingly went to her. When Lucy’s mother eventually married a sailor, John Dawson (who died in the war), her reputation and her daughter’s was restored somewhat. Lucy is close to Alethea, mostly because as a child, Alethea pursued the relationship once she realized who Lucy was.
