    I’m a total nobody and I like it the way it is. I remember it and I don’t remember my own age.

    I love it, but I’m immature and have no concept of appropriate professional presentation (or so I’ve been told, and my sore-thumb RWA photo would seem to support that allegation), so that may not be a good thing. I think it makes you memorable and relatable in a sea of “I went to school here and worked here and here and here before this that and the other.”

    And it totally goes with the RED picture. Just sayin’.

    I like yours, it has personality. Makes you seem approachable.

    :bouncebed: Perhaps, for those who are more traditional, you could add the authors you edit. You could give your authors some publicity and prove that you do serious work in between the harem and the castle. Written in the whimsical, casual style of the first two paragraphs. :chair:

    I know I’ve read that bio somewhere so it must be posted on your profile page. I love it, but I’m not a writer or in the publishing world, so I don’t need to know more. I have no idea what someone at a conference or convention would expect to see.

    Jackie: I could do that. But…I just spent 15 minutes trying to write that paragraph and threw up my hands in frustration. Clearly there’s a reason I’m not an author. *sigh*

    I like it short and fun, but I do think you should update it by mentioning your baby. Something like, “Having now procreated a brand new human being, my super powers have increased exponentially.” :blue:

    I like it.

    And you know what they say–if it ain’t broke…

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
