What’s up with Camy (November newsletter excerpt)

The following is a mashup from my November Camy Tang newsletter and Camille Elliot newsletter which both went out this past Wednesday, but I thought it might be nice to post it on my blog, too.

My health this past month has been like a particularly gruesome car wreck. I’ve had IBS flareups and also sinus headaches, sometimes both at once. I had really thought I had finally started to get control over my IBS and the foods that I need to avoid, but I made a few mistakes (didn’t read ingredients lists closely enough). The sinus headaches have been a little more frequent because of the change in weather here in California and the increased rain showers.

I’m finally feeling better and continuing work on volume 4 of my Christian Regency Romantic Suspense epic serial novel, Lady Wynwood’s Spies. I started trying to train myself to write via dictation because once I get used to it, it’s supposed to be significantly faster, and it will help ease the workload on my hands and wrists.

I also realized that volume 4 ends on a cliffhanger, so I might delay releasing the book until I have written volume 5, so that I can release both books within a few weeks of each other. Unfortunately, that means I won’t be releasing volume 4 within the next few months. I had really hoped to release volume 4 in December this year, but because of my health issues and because it ends on a cliffhanger, it probably won’t be released until spring 2022. Sorry about that!

On weekends I’m also outlining the next series I’ll be writing, which will be a Christian Contemporary Romantic Suspense series set in Hawaii. The Warubozu Spa Chronicles will be more like my Protection for Hire series, with both comedy and romantic suspense, and the story won’t be taking itself all that seriously.

The novella that is in the Save the Date anthology, The Wedding Kimono, is a prequel to the Warubozu Spa Chronicles. The version in Save the Date is the shorter (25,000 word) version which will not be published anywhere else, so if you like short and sweet, be sure to get a copy of Save the Date. The longer version, which is about 35,000 words, will be released as a separate ebook sometime next year. I’ll be sure to let you know when it’s available.

For those of you who like polls, next year I’ll be posting polls to ask for suggestions about the characters and plot of the Warubozu Spa Chronicles books. If I use your suggestion, I’ll include your name in the Acknowledgements section of the book!
