    “Slightly” frightening? I aim for terrifying at a bare minimum. So sorry you were sick (I felt a bit dizzy and queasy yesterday, but attributed to a scary cab ride). You forgot to mention how awesome you were on our panel. I am still letting the “it’s the book, not the format” idea reverberate in my mind. ‘Cause you know, I buy the book, not the format. And that’s really something to remember.

    Same city, next year?

    Glad you’re home safe, Angie.

    Rest up. We’ll still be here when you get back up to speed.

    Feel better soon! Kudos to your hubby for coddling you. My man would probably toss me a roll of toilet paper for nose blowing and a bottle of water and then hide for a few days so he wouldn’t catch it LOL

    Good info on all the links but can I just say WOW I was quite blown away that Smartbitches had 😯 16 MILLION 😯 hits in January.

    I liked the comments about the Kindle’s back falling off and how useless the wireless feature is outside of the USA. All Sony has to do now is become affordable to people like me and I’ll snap one of their readers up in a heartbeat!

    I’m going to try my darndest!

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
