    Angie, I’m laughing here in Texas – you have no clue how much I worried whether or not you’d like the Pink books. Thank you so much for taking the time to read them, and I’m really, really glad you enjoyed the reads.

    As for Pink 3 – it’s titled Run For The Money and will be out next April.

    Thanks also for mentioning the Wet Noodle Posse. That’s me they’re talking about. After we all finaled in the GH in 03, I sort of hit the wall – as close to giving up as I’d ever been. I had this idea for the Pink book, and they all encouraged me to go for it. But the entire time I was writing, I kept posting to our list and whining that it was a piece of shit, that no editor would buy it, yada yada. It was so different from anything I’d ever written before. They threatened to round up a posse and come beat the hell outta me with wet noodles. When it did sell, they all loved saying We Told You So. Great group of friends, and I’m so lucky. We wanted to do a website that wasn’t just to promote books – and that whole Be Good To Yourself, Or Else thing was based on how much we all doubt ourselves. Not just writers – women in general.

    Congratulations on the decision to start a critique service. I wish you all success!

    Also, too cool about Jaci. I don’t know her personally, but I’ve seen her name a lot, and I’m pumped for her.

    I’ll be back, because I’m dying to hear what you think about the Porn Star book. I’ve seen it at Barnes & Noble, picked it up, almost bought it, but remembered my towering tbr stacks and put it back.

    Thank you again, Angie!

    Take care-
    Stef

    Dropped by because Stef told the Posse you had mentioned us. Thanks!

    Great looking blog — did you do the home-page illustration yourself? Faboo.

    I had to watch the vids of Brianna walking. Too cute. Love her little squeaky sounds. And I have to admit, that Hi-5 theme song is darn catchy. I found myself bouncing up and down a little.

About Me


Angela James

There is nothing worse than writing a bio. And writing one for your blog sidebar? Blech. Maybe you landed here via Google, followed me from Twitter (does that make you a stalker?) or maybe we met at a conference or you clicked a link from a comment I made at a blog you visited. Hopefully whatever I said didn't make you so mad you came looking for a picture to throw darts at (yep, that's me up above, in my favorite cowboy hat) but instead drove you to find out more about the amazingly witty and intelligent person behind the amazingly witty and intelligent comment.

However you found me, who you found is Angela James, executive editor of Carina Press, Harlequin's new digital-first press. I'm passionate about digital publishing, my mission is to drag people to the digital dark side, one reader (and author) at a time. I'm also Brianna's mommy. At my blog you'll get an odd mix of personal and professional posts about parenting, publishing, books, cooking, sewing and life in general. Come back often, comment frequently and go green—buy ebooks!

Please note that this is my personal blog and my opinions are neither that of Harlequin, nor representative of their opinions.

 

Find Me Here

First, I blog once or twice a week at theCarina Press blog, talking about the job, the authors, the books and other things Carina Press. And, of course, you can always find me on Twitter. Or Facebook, if you prefer (mostly the same content, one feeds the other). I also run the Carina Press Twitter and Facebook accounts. Social media, it's where it's at (well, it's where I'm at, anyway).
