    I’ve been reading the free ebooks Tor has been sending out weekly. I finished Old Man’s War by John Scalzi and loved it. Now I’m in the middle of reading Spin by Robert Charles Wilson and am loving it as well. These TOR freebies are working because I’ve already gone out and purchased a couple other titles by Scalzi, and I imagine I’ll be doing the same with Robert Charles Wilson as well. I would never have picked up either of these books or authors before–this is not a genre I normally read (sci-fi w/minimal to no romantic subplot and told only from the male POV), and I’ll admit I don’t read a lot of male authors–however I now recognize what I’ve been missing and will be spending more time searching out books like this in the future. Since you like character driven books, I think you’d really enjoy Old Man’s War, and probably Spin as well.

    Grimspace’s cover and blurb are awesome and I think I’m going to go for it (adding to my Amazon cart now). I’m setting aside my aversion to first present tense because damn, this book sounds great!

    I read Strangers In Death and Grimspace as well. Loved them both. Ann Aguirre totally rocks! I don’t enjoy many first person stories, but hers I absolutely adored.

    You bought Fire Study? Sigh, I suppose I’ll have to break down and buy it too… I AM the one who blogged about it after all, but then I have to re-read, at least the second one for sure. It’s not a hardship at all because the books rock, the only problem is time… I don’t have enough of it!

    Glad you’re feeling better, Angela.

    I’ve got to pick up Grimspace and Driven. (I put those together because I think they’re the same imprint, though maybe I’m wrong about that.)

    Last week I whipped through Ally Blue’s Untamed Heart, a total pageturner, highly recommended. Yesterday I read Patricia McKillip’s The Book of Atrix Wolfe which is heavy-duty fantasy with very understated romance. Change of pace for me with its world-building and magic, and I really liked it.

    So glad to hear you’re having fun reading Magic Lost, Trouble Found! You’ll have to let me know what you think when you finish.

    Take care!

    Yay! I’m so happy you liked Grimspace. Thanks for all the kind words.

    Jorrie, it’s not the same imprint as Driven. I write for Ace; Eve Kenin writes for Shomi, but I could not be more thrilled to be put in her company. I gave Driven an A+++.

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).
