    You can do it. Trust me on this.

    I managed to pack away most of my life into two suitcases last year, and I’m going to pack about half of it again back into a suitcase when I go home in the summer.

    Layer up, and those vacuum seal bags? They are amazing.

    You are the queen of travel! And just wear all black, all the time. I do, and I can fit everything into one suitcase.

    See you in SF! Maybe for more than a brief chat?

    I live in Melbourne ๐Ÿ™‚ I may not be able to afford attending the conference, but do keep us updated on whether you’ll be organising a group to go out for coffee or something.

    Enjoy Australia, and have a lovely day! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m with May – you can do it! I’ll be at Nationals and hope to see you there. Are you going to the Diva dinner?

    Wow you’re a jetsetter. I don’t like the new luggage restrictions either. Luckily enough I’m driving to SF but next year…ugh.

    But I have faith. I’m with everyone else – you can do it! ;;)

    I bought my airline tickets to the Lori Foster get together last night! I’ve planned to go since January, I just kept putting off buying the ticket.

    As for packing…I am the queen of over-packing. I was okay with one checked bag when I went to Costa Rica in 2003, though. And I was known on that trip as the person who had everything!

    I look forward to seeing you at Lori Foster’s event in June!

    I’m heading to NZ in a month. August will be cold, so remember to pack warm!

    I have so many hair supplies that I MUST check one back and carry on a small bag. There is no effen way that the small amt of allowable carry on liquids could tame the savage beast that is my hair.

    For big business conferences, I UPS my evening ensembles and other crap to the hotel. That way I don’t have to lug it through the airport. It will await me at the desk and a nice bellman will cart it up to my room. I then write off the UPS cost on my taxes.

    May: Ha! You have clearly never seen me pack. I’m the “what if I want to wear something different” queen.

    Megan: Yes, please. Let’s plan a time to get together for drinks/coffee/gossip when it gets closer and we both know our schedules.

    Tez: I will definitly do that. We haven’t thought that far ahead yet, but it’s a great idea, if there’s time in our schedules.

    MG: Yes, I will be at the Diva dinner. I’ll be the one looking overwhelmed and lost ๐Ÿ˜›

    Karen: see you in SF! I drove to RT and it was so nice not having to worry about luggage restrictions.

    Michelle: It’s my first LF event so I’m excited about it. I love the smaller conferences because I feel like I get to seem people for longer periods of time.

    Anne: I bought my “conference” clothes for NZ and Australia this winter. Most conferences happen in the summer so I was glad to be able to buy some cooler weather clothes.

    Annmarie: Soul sisters. I think we’re soul sisters. I’ll be you travel with as many shoes as I do.

    Anni! Squeee! Really? Oh yay! I’m so excited ๐Ÿ˜€ I haven’t seen you in AGES!

    Angie, Angie, Angie, when I packed for Prague last month, I packed for two weeks even though I was just going to be there for one. You can fit everything into one bag. One good trick is to bring tops and bottoms when you can and mix and match them.

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).
