    I mentioned this over at DA, but how will this affect the anthologies currently accepting submissions that have no specification for genre, like the psychic powers anthology?

    I ask because I have a story I’m working on to submit. It’s not strictly a romance, but the later books in the series are. :-\

    I’ll answer here and then there as well, but really “romantic elements” is the key. As long as there’s romance (and slightly more than a token romance, lol) then it’s fine for us.

    Damn. The particular story I was hoping to submit to the psychic powers antho is urban fantasy, but no romance (it’s a prequel to the rest of the series, and the lead hero of the series doesn’t come in at this point of time in her life). Ah well. *sigh*

    (And if you ask why I don’t just submit the book with the hero, it’s because it was previously published and I know you guys don’t take reprints. :P)

    Wow. It amazes me how fast you guys react to the ever-changing publishing world. That’s going to speak leaps and bounds to your longevity. With NY “swallowing up the competition” by signing more and more e-book authors, building up the company makes a lot of sense if you want to survive in this business.

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).
