    That’s the kind of luck I have when I travel. And in life in general.

    Maybe if two cursed travelers travel together, good things happen. Two negatives equal a positive. Maybe?

    Ok, probably not.

    Ummm, yeah, I think I’ll pass on traveling with you… but glad you made it home safe 😉

    I take back last night’s last tweet: You would have been better off sitting in CVG.

    No freakin’ way!! How can all of that happen to one person?!

    I’m sorry it happened to you but I still can’t stop laughing 😀

    Really, you do need to compare travel disasters with Carly Phillips. It would be highly amusing.

    I’m afraid to travel with you.

    yep still laughing – i organise travel for an engineering consulting firm and i can get staff from Australia to Afghanistan with less adventure than you in the good old USA.

    Though i must say with our staff working in many countries ending in ‘stan (Afghanistan, Pakistan, Kazikstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan etc) i don’t really want them to have adventures

    Glad you made it home safe

    One simple post reminds me of all the reasons I don’t like travel. Hope your bad travel karma is over now and your trip to RWA will be a breeze.

    Wow, my sympathies! Nice to know someone has worse luck than me though, lol.

    Of course 9 out of 10 flights I get pulled out of the line and patted down in front of the other passengers (and trust me, because this happens with such regularity I follow all the luggage regulations to a “t” but it still doesn’t help). Apparently I’m quite scary looking.

    My biggest issue for air travel are the medical devices I have implanted. They always set off the detectors so I always get a pat down. I started dressing in gym shorts, beach tees and sandals when ever I fly. One day, I gave my wife all of my stuff, including my wallet, and went over for a pat down. They asked me for my ID and I told them my wife had it. I pointed to her (she had already passed through the detectors and but the entrance to the boarding area. The security guard walked over to her and pointed me out. She had an evil grin on her face and I could read her lips as she told the guy “I’ve never seen that guy before in my life.” The guard motioned to his partner to bring me over. He wasn’t real gentle about it either! When we got there, my wife told them she was only joking.

    I actually stopped flying shortly thereafter. Now I take either drive or take the train everywhere I go. When we moved form Connecticut to Texas, we came by train. It’s a lot of fun!

    You and Marc apparently are having the same travel mojo right now.
    In future if you have a late arrival like that again, call me, it takes me 5 mins to get to the airport, you can crash here.

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).
