    I read the first few pages of ‘The girl she used to be’ via amazon and and it looks like a must read. Thanks for the review.

    I’m a fan of James Rollins, so I’ll second that rec. He even made the novelization of the new Indiana Jones movie decent. (Not excellent, he’s not a miracle worker and he had to follow the script.) I actually think that any of the group from Sigma could announce that Indiana Jones was their grandfather and it would make perfect sense.

    Also recommending Jack du Brul. His Phillip Mercer series is very Clive Cussler-like. Mercer is very much like Dirk Pitt as a geologist would be. Du Brul has been co-writing the last few entries in Cussler’s Oregon Files series.

    For that same kind of action/adventure story, only way over the top, you might try Matthew Reilly. His books read like over the top action movies. The other people I know that read them do it the same way I do. While snickering and saying ‘yeah, that’d work. Not!’ But they’re fun.

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).
