    I’m not good with computer but trying to put it on the side of my blog too so that a person sees it and clicks and comes here. Not sure if it will work tho, LOL.

    I understand that “treasure hunts” aren’t supposed to be easy, but after spending 10-20 minutes on a site, looking through each page, then resorting to using Firefox’s “view info” in order to view all the media on each page, and still not finding a Kindle graphics, it’s too frustrating to continue. I was able to finally find a Kindle graphics at some author’s site, only by viewing their image directory, certainly not on their site.

    I can only guess that one of the reasons for this contest is to gain exposure for Sanhain’s authors, which would hopefully drum up more business. But, instead of being thankful towards Sanhain, I’m frustrated and ticked enough that I certainly don’t want to send any money Sanhain’s way. And of course I’m also frustrated at author sites that won’t frigging work in Firefox too.

    I’m pleased that some have managed to find all the Kindle graphics, and they’ll be eligible to win a great prize. I hope the others aren’t so annoyed that they won’t refuse to visit Sanhain any time soon out of pure frustration and anger. Not me.

    I started with the first author on the Kindle contest #1 list, Alexis Fleming, and looked everywhere on her site and could not find the kindle graphic, what’s up? Am I doing something wrong or perhaps it was taken off? Anyone else find it today Fri. 12/5?

    @dew As I said on Dear Author, I’m sorry you feel that way and maybe you’ll find the daily contests more to your liking, or a contest at a later date.

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).
