    Congrats Angie.

    What will the genre of the imprint be? I presume romance, but will it be erotic?

  2. Angie June 4, 2007 at 7:46 AM #

    Mostly romance, erotic and non-erotic, though the potential for genres with romantic elements is there if we think they’ll do exceptionally well.

    Thanks for letting me share. I read your recent entry and have to say that it fits your “evil editor” persona. I hadn’t realized you guys weren’t accepting submissions right now. How very cruel of you on the heels of such an exciting announcement.

    Jane, there was a reason we closed submissions when we did. We knew that both RWA recognition and the Kensington deal would come close together, during the busy summer season when we’re all trying to enjoy the weather, travel, and also attend conferences. And we needed time to breathe and concentrate on the books we have contracted.

    Of course, this means we’ll pay for it when submissions reopen, I’m sure 🙂

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).
