    I just started reading a print book I recently purchased from another epublisher. It is rife with typos, consistent lack of commas where commas absolutely should be, and mistakes that would make you wince, like using “vein” when the word should have been “vain”. I haven’t seen those kinds of errors in books I’ve purchased from Samhain and certain other publishers.

    Quality is reflected in the product. I’d think that readers who purchase Samhain’s products take it for granted that your hiring process is done with care. I’m sure both the authors submitting and the readers appreciate the hell out of that. :cheer:

    You did, however, send a chill up my spine with the phrase “mental math” and your obvious affection for spreadsheets. :shudder:

    oh, and Happy Halloween!

    I don’t know about affection, but such a necessary evil. I’m at the point where I need a spreadsheet to track all of my spreadsheets 😉

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).
