    I understand the situation, but what does the submissions closing mean for us few authors now without an editor? Have we just been shut out too? Hope things work out soon. I like working with Samhain.:cry:

    Oh I can’t wait to hear about the changes!!

    Excellent points, Angie. It’s my own personal policy to not submit my writing to the e-publishers I work with. Seems too much like a conflict of interest in my mind.

    And I will agree that editing does certainly take away from writing. Fortunately, I’ve discovered I love editing, and I’ve been lucky enough to work with some amazing writers. :boobie: Though I do plan to do some writing and editing my own work over the holidays.

    Good luck with the hiring process!!!

    Are editors paid actual money or a percent of sales of things they edit that become published?

    Well, royalties are actual money. Or at least that’s what my paycheck tells me every month πŸ˜‰

    But yes, there is some flat fee payment as well, in addition to royalties.

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
