    Fun to read your posts. After all, if you don’t promote you, who else will join the parade? Before following you, we only suspected what was stirring the publishing pot. I’m so old I still think in paper terms πŸ™‚ Technical journals still think in terms of page fees, after all. Anyway, I take Roger Ebert’s suggestions when I go to the movies. Why shouldn’t I take yours and vote for your books? πŸ™‚ Good luck.

    I’d like now to vote for the books that I picked, but I can’t even find my bracket tonight. So really, I’m just here to encourage you to lobby while bracketing is still live next year. I’d pick books in my bracket if I thought there was enough support to move them forward. πŸ˜€

    Ooh…got a vested interest in the competition as well. Couldn’t help you with Mexican Heat, but I see Rough, Raw, and Ready moved on (I picked it in my bracket to move on too)

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).
