    I hear ya, I’ve spent my entire life being Lori Roach (so not how you spell my name). You wouldn’t think a name that seems so simple would be so darn hard to spell.

    I always tell the bf that I’m really only marrying him for his last name…cuz anything’s gotta be better than a bug no one likes. hee.

    Dear Editor: should be “.. just Sasha and I…”
    Pronouns take different forms, depending on whether they’re subjects in the clause (as here) or objects (“hit me”). Standard American editors also put the first person pronoun last in a series.

    I appreciate your correcting my blog post, but really, it’s a blog post and I’m not going to worry about proper English when I’m chatting casually about my life. Please stop.

    Ok, I’ll stop. Let sentence structure and grammar will be a fair warning to readers about how well you edit. Bye Bye.

    This comment box doesn’t delete very well. Above, I deleted a sentence that started with “Let.” Please note the correction and cap the “S.” Best regards and cheerio.

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).
