If you know anyone who might be interested in this devotional book in Japanese, please do point them to the Japanese section of my website.

This book is a compilation of devotional readings that cover the entire book of Matthew. I was honored to have so many authors contribute to the book, some of them with more than one devotional reading.


Who I Want to Be


A devotional journey through the book of Matthew



For women struggling with all aspects of their lives, 31 authors have written heartfelt devotional readings through the Biblical book of Matthew. We pray that from this devotional book, you will realize that Jesus loves you deeply. You are not alone. There is no place you have gone that is too far away from God, and He can help you to be the person who you want to be.

What's up with Camy


We are sheltering at home here in California, although since I work from home this hasn't affected my writing that much. We have been trusting in God to take care of us and we have been praying for the nation and the world in the midst of all these troubles.

Writing-wise, the past couple years have been very difficult for me. I've struggled with some personal issues and several bad cases of writer's block. However, God is good and I've been able to get almost completely back on track since September last year.

In June, I'll be releasing a print version of my two romantic suspense novellas, Necessary Proof & Unshakeable Pursuit, which have only been available on ebook up until now. Both books will be available in one volume, and this new print version features a fantastic new cover design. Necessary Proof ebook is currently FREE on iBooks, Nook, and Kobo, and you can download a free copy from my website, too.

The Japanese translation of my contemporary romance novel Sushi for One is almost completed! However it's been rough for my translator since I use so much slang in the book. I apologize profusely to her every time I see her. It will be sent to my Japanese proofreader soon, and my graphic designer is working on a new cover design. I hope to release it later this year.

I'm currently working on a Regency romantic adventure series as Camille Elliot. If the editing goes smoothly, volume 1 will release this summer, so if you'd like to know when it will be available, be sure to sign up for my Camille Elliot newsletter.

The 3rd book in my Protection for Hire series is on hold at the moment because I couldn't think up a plot that really excited me. However, I have been working on a new contemporary romance series set in Hawaii! I hope to be able to work on both my Regency romances and my contemporary romances, but I am working on my books as I feel God leading me. He strongly pointed me toward my Regency series, so that's what I'm focusing on right now, but it hasn't stopped me from plotting my contemporary series.

Happy reading and stay safe!

Camy

キャミーの近況



いつも自宅で仕事をしている私にとってはあまり変化がないのですが、カリフォルニアでは「ステイホーム」の指示が出ています。困難な状況の中にあっても、神様が守ってくださっていることを信じて、この国や世界のために祈っています。

執筆という点で、この2年ほどはとても困難な時でした。個人的な問題もありましたが、作家としての壁(「ライターズ・ブロック」と言います)にぶち当たり、筆が止まってしまいました。ですが、神様は良いお方で、去年の9月以降、ほぼ完全に復帰することができました。

6月には、これまでイーブックのみだったロマンティックサスペンス小説「Necessary Proof」「Unshakeable Pursuit」の印刷版が発売になります。この2冊はそれぞれ1巻にまとめられていて、印刷版の新しい表紙デザインがとても素敵です。「Necessary Proof」のイーブックは現在無料で、iBooks、Nook、Koboで読んでいただくことができます。私のホームページからも無料でダウンロード可能です。

現代ロマンス小説「ひとり寿司」の日本語訳がほぼ完成しました!ですが、スラングを使いすぎたようで、翻訳者はかなり困ったようです。彼女に会うたびに、申し訳なく思います。もうすぐ日本語の校正者が作業に入る予定で、グラフィックデザイナーが新しい表紙のデザインを作成中です。今年の後半には出版できることを願っています。

カミール・エリオットの名前で、摂政時代を舞台にしたロマンティックアドベンチャーシリーズを執筆中です。編集が順調に進めば、この夏に第1巻が出版されます。興味をお持ちの方は、カミール・エリオットのニュースレターをぜひご購読ください。

「Protection for Hire」シリーズの第3作は、あまりいい構想が浮かんでこないので、中断しています。でも、ハワイを舞台にした新しい現代ロマンスシリーズを考えています!摂政時代ロマンスと現代ロマンスの両方を進められるといいのですが、神様に導かれるまま作業を進めるようにしていて、今は摂政時代シリーズの方に強く導かれているので、そちらの方に専念しています。でも、現代シリーズの構想は引き続き考えています。

みなさんの楽しい読書と健康な生活を祈りつつ

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

Grace Livingston Hill romances free to read online

I wanted to update my old post on Grace Livingston Hill romances because now there are tons more options for you to be able to read her books for free online! I’m a huge Grace Livingston Hill fan. Granted, not all her books resonate with me, but there are a few that I absolutely love, like The Enchanted Barn and Crimson Roses . And the best part is that she wrote over 100 books and I haven’t yet read them all! When I have time, I like to dive into a new GLH novel. I like the fact that most of them are romances, and I especially appreciate that they all have strong Christian themes. Occasionally the Christian content is a little heavy-handed for my taste, but it’s so interesting to see what the Christian faith was like in the early part of the 20th century. These books are often Cinderella-type stories or A Little Princess (Frances Hodgson Burnett) type stories, which I love. And the best part is that they’re all set in the early 1900s, so the time period is absolutely fasci

Year of the Dog serial novel, chapter 22

I’m posting a Humorous Christian Romantic Suspense serial novel here on my blog! Year of the Dog is a (second) prequel to my Warubozu Spa Chronicles series. Year of the Dog serial novel by Camy Tang Mari Mutou, a professional dog trainer, is having a bad year. While renovating her new dog kenneling and training facility, she needs to move in with her disapproving family, who have always made her feel inadequate—according to them, a job requiring her to be covered in dog hair and slobber is an embarrassment to the family. She convinces her ex-boyfriend to take her dog for a few months … but discovers that his brother is the irate security expert whose car she accidentally rear-ended a few weeks earlier. Ashwin Keitou has enough problems. His aunt has just shown up on his doorstep, expecting to move in with him, and he can’t say no because he owes her everything—after his mother walked out on them, Auntie Nell took in Ashwin and his brother and raised them in a loving Chri

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

Cover Reveals!

Here are the covers to my next books! Spinster will be the 7th volume in my Lady Wynwood’s Spies series. I don’t yet have a release date because I’m still writing it and it’s taking a bit longer than I had anticipated, but within the next few months, I’m pretty sure. This is the cover for Lissa and the Spy, a novella I’m writing that will be in Once Upon a Courtship , a multi-author box set releasing in October this year. You can preorder Once Upon a Courtship now for only 99 cents! And then click here for how you can get additional free Christian romance ebooks! When the box set is unpublished in January 2025, I’ll release Lissa and the Spy as a separate ebook. I’m thinking that I might make it only available to my newsletter subscribers, and if that’s the case, be sure to subscribe to my newsletter so you can download it for free. But that wouldn’t be until spring of next year. In the meantime, preorder Once Upon a Courtship!

Christian Humorous Romantic Suspense: Year of the Dog (Warubozu Spa Chronicles series, Prequel novel) (Currently being posted monthly on my blog as a serial novel) Marisol Mutou, a professional dog trainer, finally has a chance to buy a facility for her business, but her world is upended when she must move in with her disapproving family, who have always made her feel inadequate. When she stumbles upon a three-year-old missing persons case, security expert Ashwin Keitou, whose car she accidentally rear-ended a few weeks earlier, is tasked with protecting her. However, danger begins to circle around them from people who want the past to remain there. Can they shed light on the secrets moving in the shadows?

Cleo’s Drawstring Purse knitting pattern w/ @KnitPicks CotLin

Kari Trumbo is one of the twelve authors who participated with me in the Christian Contemporary Romance anthology, Save the Date . Kari’s novella in the anthology is titled January Hope . In celebration, I wrote a knitting pattern for the lace drawstring purse used by Kari’s heroine, Cleo. (In case you missed it, here are the links for my interview with Kari part 1 and part 2 . Tomorrow I’ll post an excerpt of one of Kari’s other books, Better Than First .) This is a pretty and practical little bag used by the heroine Cleo in Kari Trumbo’s novella, January Hope . Knit in a cotton/linen blend yarn, it’s just large enough for a cell phone and a small wallet. In the book, Cleo’s bag was a coral shade, but the bag I knit here is a chocolate brown color. The lace pattern is the Double Rose Leaf stitch pattern originally published on page 195 in The Lady's Assistant, volume 2 by Mrs. Jane Gaugain, published in 1847.
