    Ack! You really DO know how to start a Monday! Here’s hoping the birthday goodness starts rolling in soon!

    I really hope the rest of your week is better! I can’t wait to see who made it!! I’m rooting for a friend or two of mine 😉

    Wishing you a happy birthday!

    I’d much rather get a rejection letter on a Monday than a Friday, because Friday letters can cast a pall over the entire weekend. So, in a bizarre way, I’m thinking that by rejecting them today, you did them a favor.

    Wishing you and your hubby an amazing year! Happy Birthday!

    :cheer: Happy Birthday to you! Don’t let anything interfere with your birthday week, and make it special :o)

    and please, tell me it wasn’t my new editor who quit…whimper

    It was an editor that only had three authors, so you’re safe 🙂

    So sorry you’ve had such a horrible Monday. Enjoy your birthday week though.

    :cheer: Happy Birthday to you and your hubby. I saw the video you made for the dragon anthology, very cool. Sounds like a great book. :popcorn:

    Good grief! I hope your week only gets better! Happy Birthday!!! I can’t wait for that dragon anthology to come out! I’m somewhat of a dragonaholic.

    OMG! I can’t believe hubby didn’t kill your for hurting his Cobra. What a rotten day.

    I hope things start looking up and you have a great birthday!

    At least your birthday week can only get better from here!

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).

Follow me on Twitter
