    I don’t think writers ever get tired of reading interviews with editors. Every little insight helps us with the process of writing, editing, submitting, and dealing with rejections.

    I enjoyed this interview and I think Samhain has decidedly earned every bit of its success. I also think the Best Line contest idea is especially interesting, in that the writers are being given a clever glimpse into how editors read and judge manuscripts.

    As surely by which lines the editors reject as well as which lines they approve for the next round, writers can surmise as much about the editors as the editors are surmising about the writers. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I think a lot of writers are also playing along with the contest, picking out which lines they’d choose to move on to the next round–to see how their choices stack up against the editors’ choices. It will be fascinating to follow the elimination process over the next few weeks. Very neat idea.

    I agree. I’m playing along, wondering if my fav picks will make it to the next round of the Best Line Contest!

    Big thanks to Angie for taking time out to visit and do an interview!


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).
