    Sounds really good!

    Ok, you taunted your readers here about STRAY. I’m going to taunt too. (Rachel’s gonna kill me. hehe)

    I read STRAY over a year ago. In its pre-agented/pre-published stages and was blown away. Being Rachel’s buddy, I’ve also read her second book in the series, ROGUE. heh heh heh Its even better.

    She’s finishing the 3rd book, which is way cool. And my lips are sealed on what’s she’s got up her sleeve for other ideas. 🙂

    I’m glad you liked STRAY and you’ll LOVE ROGUE.

    Oooh, that was mean. I like it 😉 But c’mon, I wasn’t really taunting. Look how many people hadn’t heard of the book but are going to put it on their TBB lists because of my review. That was pure promotional goodness and surely it deserves a reward *sniff*

    It was a good review! She’s so excited and she’s probably floating in her recliner as she finishes WC3 right now.

    And as a reward, I’ll tell you this, ROGUE will come out 6 months after STRAY. So you wan’t have to wait tooooo long. (at least I think it’s still 6 months…)

    Awww, you guys are making me blush. 😉

    Angie, it was a fantastic review (my agent said they don’t get any better!) and I am thrilled with it, and by how much your kind comments spread the word.

    Dana, in fact, I am sitting in my recliner finishing up the third installment! About the future release dates, they aren’t set in stone yet, but I’ve been told that both Rogue and the third (still waiting on approval for the title) will come out in ’08. 😉

    waves at Rachel

    Well, dammit, Rachel, we need dates. That way I can start whining about how far away it is. And while I’m glad to be one of your first reviews, I don’t think I’ll be the last damn good one, so you probably ought to get used to it 🙂

    I love it when you find a book that just won’t let go! The only bad thing is the lack of sleep 😉

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).
