    Sounds like a nice night. I was in bed a little earlier, but the fireworks at midnight woke me up. The neighbor across the water from us puts on a professional show every year.

    Happy New Year to you as well, Angela! [and smiling over Brianna’s reaction 😀 Kids are so honest, aren’t they?]

    Sounds a lot like my night, although I was sending e-mails until about 11:50 then watched the ball with my hubby as the kids slept on the living room floor, having begged to be allowed to stay up.
    BTW talking of the e-mails reminds me, Angie could you inform your authors that there is a site called 4shared.com that is allowing pirated copies of both print and e-books to be downloaded by the thousands. I have notified about 30 authors myself, but there are many more. I’m not even sure how many. The group that some friends and I started is trying to stop these sites, but most of the time the complaint has to come from the copyright holder or an authorized representative, otherwise they don’t listen.

    That sounds like fun!

    My baby sitters were always family and SO not cool. Lucky Brianna.

    I was in bed by 9ish.

    Happy New Year! I ended up staying in too because we had a blizzard… It was fun!

    I’m with you on the Dick Clark thing. Like I need another reminder that we’re all getting older…

    Happy New Year! I had a rather laid back evening myself spent with my parents and grandparents.

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).
