    Nope, didn’t get the entry email, which makes me wonder if I mistyped my email address. Everyone else got their confirmation. I have a tendency to forget part of my email address sometimes. Senior moments are becoming senior hours *eye roll*. Harumph.

    I think I’ll test it again, knowing only one entry counts.

    OK, well it recognized that I already filled out the form, so I did use the correct email address. Your form just didn’t like me 🙁

    I’ll just wait and see if maybe the server is slow sending the email out. I feel so unloved.

    Lori, I got your entry and it looks like your email is correct. The form is set up not to allow an exact duplicate entry, but if you change any detail in any part of the form, it will let you enter it again if you want to try again, just to see.

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
