Latest in Christian Fiction

Even if you’re not a sushi lover, Camy Tang’s new book, Sushi for One?, is a chick-lit promising a tasty kick of wasabi-laced romance and humor.
Check out Sushi for One?

Lex Sakai’s family, big, nosy, and marriage-minded, is ruled by a crafty grandmother. When her cousin Mariko gets married, Lex will become the OLDEST SINGLE COUSIN in the clan, a loathed position by all single female family members.

Lex has not dated for years. Grandma homes in on this fact and demands, bribes, and threatens Lex to bring a boyfriend (not just a date) to her cousin’s wedding. Lex does not want to date ... not since that terrible incident a few years back ... but, Grandma doesn't give her that choice.

Lex's options are slim because she has used her Bible study class on Ephesians to compile a huge list of traits for the PERFECT man (and the more she dates, the more she adds to the list).

The one man she keeps running into (and is completely attracted to) doesn’t seem to have a single quality on her list. It’s only when the always-in-control Lex loses control and lets God take over that all the pieces of this hilarious romance finally fall into place.

Camy, tell us a little about your writing journey!
I’ve always loved writing, but my attitude wasn’t the greatest. I was more interested in my name on a book cover than in giving God glory. So, God asked me to lay down my writing.

At first I thought He was nuts, but once I realized He was serious about it, I fought Him long and hard over it. Eventually, I did it—laid down my writing, stopped cold turkey. Set my manuscript away (all 500+ pages of my epic fantasy novel that was going to take the world by STORM!).

I went into biology research—probably as far from fiction writing as I could go—and made up stories in my head, but never wrote anything down. Then, I got laid off from work and out of the blue, God gave me the green light to start writing again.

I completed five novels before I sold number five. The first two were VERY BAD. The next three were definitely much better. :) Now, my debut novel, Sushi for One (manuscript #5), is releasing this month! I’m totally excited. My husband is so proud of me—holding that book in his hands affirmed to him that this really is what God wants me to do.
