    As a teenager I announced that someone should make a musical using ABBA songs. Sadly, I haven’t got to see the movie OR the musical. Thanks for reminding me that I should.

    Have fun, be safe and wow ’em!

    I love ABBA music (and take some flack because of it). The movie was pretty good, great visual eye candy. I’d love to take in the show some day!

    I love and miss the city, having gone to school there. And now I really think I need to see Mamma Mia (the movie, at least.)

    I love Mamma Mia. I’ve seen it live and have the movie, but nothing beats live theater.

    My daughter is a Batman fanatic. Any chance you could share your Batman story? (We’re both Mamma Mia fans and do in-car singalongs with it all the time).

    Hope you keep having fun!

    I love going to things by myself. I don’t get much of a chance, but two times I recall are when I saw Brokeback Mountain and House of Flying Daggers. Awesome times, both of them.

    See you soon!

    Did you get your luggage?????

    (Yeah, I’m a worry wart mom, that’s what got me–sorry)

    Is it still Louise Pitre doing the lead role in Mamma Mia? I saw her in Toronto when it started here (before NY stole her and she won the Tony, LOL), and she was fabulous. I’d love to see it again.

    I haven’t seen the movie yet, but I can’t imagine it would come close to the experience of seeing it live and singing along with the crowd.

    Glad you made it to NYC safely 🙂

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).
