    I’ve already read it, too! (neener, neener) and it was FANTASTIC! Jaci hooks you on the first page and never lets go. In fact, after we traded ARCs last summer, I emailed her when I was only a few chapters into the book and could hardly contain my gushing. She writes great action, strong, believable characters, and steamy sex. And the story concept? Oh, man. I loved the feeling of LOST meets SURVIVOR . . . with demons. :sasmokin:

    You made me cry, Angie. Two days in a row, dammit.

    No, seriously, thank you for this. For everything over the past year and a half. There’s a reason you’re in the dedication of the book. I couldn’t have ‘survived’ Demon island without you.

    I can’t wait for this! I have a horrible feeling that I’m going to have to wait though 🙁 Stupid bookstores in Canada…I wouldn’t be surprised if they don’t have them in for the 26th.

    Well I was a bit scared when I read that first para, I was thinking there was no way Angie can do this. Cause the reality is SDI :fire: is :kickass: . Honestly a really good read and I expect soon to be coming to movie theatres near you (no I’m not spreading rumours just speculating).

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).
