    Sounds like you’ve been reading my mind. This kept me awake last night, but for personal reasons, not political. I, too, really appreciate the people in my life who can say, “I’m sorry,” without adding a “but . . .” Unfortunately, those people are few and far between.Hope you have a great day.Jill

    Saying “I’m sorry” without excuses is something I’ve been trying to teach my child. Admitting that, even though you may disagree, someone else can be right or have a valid point (or concern) is something I’ve been trying to teach my husband and child. The kid learns faster.

    I actually like that you don’t Twitter about editing. It helps remind me that published authors, editors, and the folks running publishing companies aren’t gods or goddesses to be afraid of but, rather, real flesh and blood people. Humans, just like me.

    I had to learn the no excuse apology dealing with irate customers.  It’s hard.  But it is the best sort of apology.  Sadly, in my personal life, I know lots of people that can’t even say the word sorry.  You and Josh give me happy smiles.  I love that y’all are so considerate of each other.

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).
