    I love it. Had to borrow it 😉

    Do we really say “No” that often? I thought for sure she was going to say “In a minute” or “Wait until I finish this”.

    Oh. man, out of the mouths of babes. Too cute!

    So, ARE “the green things” your favorites?

    But can you ‘splain this one- ““Uhh…the place where it has…what’s that place? What’s your favorite drink? Your favorite place is to go…to…Australia! I mean trips.” What drink is she associating with Australia?

    What a cute interview with Brianna.
    I’m so sorry to hear about Josh, it’s horrible and no warning. I hope he will get another job soon.

    What a cute little survey. My favorite was:
    15. What makes you proud of your mom?
    “That she loves me”

    How adorable is that?

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
