    Well I, for one, am shocked. I cannot believe this. :sigh: I could have overlooked almost anything, but not the removal of italics and not by you *gasp*. :giggle:

    It is awesome to admit one sometimes messes up, and so freeing. But it is also nervewracking enough to make one insane.

    *hugs* You are a grand editor. 🙂

    *gasp* Now I feel completely disillusioned. And jaded. 😉

    You fixed the mistake. Let bygones be bygones.

    I like to mess up on purpose so that the people who read behind me have something to do. lol. Really, that’s why I do it. :giggle:

    If you weren’t such an honest person, you could have just said, “I did it to test everyone and see if it got caught. Good job!”

    So depressing to find out you’re not perfect. I’m not sure I can go on with my day….

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).
