    I’ll be in the US in two weeks time and will be checking out some of the titles you mentioned at my local B&N. I so can’t wait. Will be hitting Borders too to check out the Samhain titles as well.

    I had never heard the term Mary Sue. Interesting piece of trivia. I always love walking away from a blog having learned something.

    I agree with your take on The Taste of Night and Hunting The Demon.

    Curiously enough, I think Sebastian’s a better book for Anne Bishop readers to start with.

    I totally agree on HTD! I liked it better than Surviving Demon Island (and I loved SDI!) Stephanie and I were discussing why, exactly, we liked HTD better…and one thing we both came up with was that it starts in the hero’s POV…and any book that begins in the male voice will automatically draw me in faster than most others starting in a female POV.

    On top of that, I think it was easier to get into HTD because the world had already been built, so for me, it was very easy to get into.

    Jaci did a fabulous job!

    PS. So glad the book worked for you!

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).
