    ROFL–I kid you not, I got this one two weeks ago at work…

    I never get cool spam like that. The spam hitting me is usually about what I can do to get a bigger penis or how I can start a business with some ex-ambasssador in Zimbabwe.

    And my internal editor is obviously in overdrive. I read that first sentence and thought “Hmmm, you have an action sequence that’s out of order. It should be ‘I’m read to eat my dog and kill myself.'” :chair: I think I need a break from revisions.

    Ah, poor Angie. I guess we can’t all get lucky enough to win the UK National Lottery several times a day and $10,000 Gift Certificates from Target, WalMart, and Best Buy.

    I get very little spam on my email, and I am very happy for it to stay that way! The things that people send. I have to admit, that one was kind of funny though. πŸ™‚

    :dumbass: Me thinks he needs to eat the dog before killing himself.

    I’ve got to turn off my spam filter!

    I totally get that message all the time. That is so funny. Have you ever noticed that some spam is like an excerpt from a book but badly written? It is hillarious like some harlequin romance without proper English. LOL

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).
