    I’m always afraid I’ll end up standing in the corner with no one to talk to for two hours.

    First, I can’t imagine that ever happening to you. And second, that’s where the cocktail part of cocktail party comes in. Keep them coming. :celebrate:

    Whaaaa! Tease! I am not allowed to have my Adam fix until I meet deadlines. 🙁

    I hate having to have self-control when that little “Start reading Bone Crossed (Mercy Thompson, Book 4) on your Kindle in under a minute” thing is taunting me.

    That is exactly why I don’t like cocktail parties. I have gone to a few and, because I’m a pretty bad introvert, I always end up in the corner or at one end of the room watching everyone else and wishing I could leave.

    I’m always afraid I’ll end up standing in the corner with no one to talk to for two hours. Very scary stuff.

    You are so personable and have so much aplomb in person, I can’t imagine this would happen.

    I haven’t gotten my copy yet. *sob*

    I am the same at cocktail parties and the truth is I HAVE been in the corner w/no one to talk too.

    I’ve often said that if hell is customized for each person mine would be one of 2 things–stuck in traffic on the 405 in LA with no radio & no air conditioning or a cocktail party that never ends. I’m such an introvert that it’s really difficult for me to strike up conversations with strangers. I’ve definitely been that odd woman in the corner hovering with no one to talk to and praying for enough time to pass that I can just go home. Alcohol doesn’t really help because I just get really paranoid that I’ll say something totally stupid.

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).
