    Good Lord above. Are really going to deteoriate into text words? Of course I just linked to the NYT article about Amazon that Katie(babs) put up on Kristie’s blog and found two errors in it. The NYT for crying out loud.

    Huh. The times I want to correct grammar/spelling/punctuation errors on letters that come home from school, or on educational posters in children’s play centres.

    Add to that a publisher’s website that has, on one of its pages, the heading AUTHOR’S. Yes, well might you ask, “Author’s what?”

    It really scares me when society thinks adults talk like teens. I work with a lady who is in her 50’s and she sends out office emails using “U” and “R” and just about every shortcut out there. I want to scream at them to write English instead of this garbage. :penguin:

    The Dallas Independent School District has signs up that ask:
    “Got a degree? We want you!” Drives me crazy.

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).
