    Oh. Why did you have to make me cry this rainy Sunday? *Blinking madly*

    I just can’t imagine, the worst nightmare. I am so sad to hear of this. My heart aches for his parents. No one should have to bury their child.

    Thank you for posting this. We’ve raised over $2100 to send to him to help with his expenses.

    I think I may be a bit confused…I thought this was yours. Regardless, I hope all is okay with DJ’s family.

    Just to be clear, I don’t know them, I don’t want anyone to think it’s me or someone I know, but a fellow a blogger. And my worst nightmare, like I said. The loss of a child is something we can all understand the tragedy of 🙁

    I don’t have to know them to be sad. Did you wtch the cereal Wednesday clip? What an adorable little guy.

    There but for the grace of God … No one is ever ready to burry a child.

    My heart stopped when I read that. It’s every parents nightmare. There are no words to express how utterly tragic and senseless something like this is. My deepest sympathies go to the family. Right now I need to go take a look at my three sleeping angels and count my blessings.

    heaven yes. It’s got to be every parents worst nightmare.

    God be with them.

    So tragic! I keep re-reading this hoping I’d misread! Bless their heart! There are no words for such a heartbreak. Glad this wasn’t your actual post Angela.

    How very tragic and sad. I just can’t fathom that kind of loss.

    OMG That is just so awful! I just wanna scoop my little boy up and not let him more than a foot away from me for the rest of his life!

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).
