    As long as you weren’t a drunk cougar (hey Paula!) I’m sure you were awesome. People always appreciate honesty if they honestly want to improve.

    Hey Angela! Didn’t even need a google alert – I popped right over here to check out your post-event comments to say what an absolute pleasure it was to meet you and get the opportunity to learn about e-publishing in general, and Samhain (and Siren, through Diana) in particular. You truly are an inspiring and enlightening spokesperson for the industry, and you may count me in as convert impressed by the business model, the potential, the professionalism and the caliber of people running the e-publishing industry. Nice work!

    I had the “easy” part during the cold reads – reading (except for the one that tripped me up with all the Italian and, um, my own personal hunger like no other). You didn’t make anyone cry; both you and Diana were honest without being brutal. That’s an art that Simon could learn! Regardless of how “published” anyone in the room might have been, we all had a master class in the art of “where to start the book” and every one can benefit from that.

    Thanks for giving up your weekend to the STARS of Florida, Angela! I bet Brianna’s really stoked to get Mommy home.

    Love the new bio, btw.


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).
