    The ad is good but the graphics leave me wondering. “Won’t Talk Back” is going to turn some people off. It indicates that the man is a wimp and is afraid to speak his mind. Now some women I know would like that but I sure wouldn’t. I want a man who isn’t afraid to argue but can compromise when necessary.

    It’s not appearing in Safari. (Yes, I’m sad and use Safari. :pengydie: )

    😎 Overall I think it turned out very cool. I agree with Bev Stephans about the “Won’t talk back”, however.

    It might be your embed code. I found a great one that works cross platform that was recently created and a lot less gunk to work with. Lemme know if you want it. 🙂

    Sure, Dee, I’ll try the new code if you want to send it to me!

    Looks good. I’ll take a man who doesn’t talk back. I like ’em w/ less talk and more action anyway 😉

    It looks great on my computer, too. I’m fine with a man who doesn’t talk back! Lead me to him. :neenerghost:

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).
