    Thanks so much for # 12.

    As a lurker and closet writer, I have wrestled forever with the thought that I could not be original enough to interest others. Seeing you statement in words was a shot in the arm. 😀

    I’m glad I could help, Noelle. After coming up with these 12 things, it got me thinking. I am going to work on an article concerning the 12 Things I’ve Learned. I felt these could be addressed more fully. Look for it in The Samhellion at Samhain Publishing in the (hopefully) not to distant future.

    Hi 🙂
    Thanks for sharing.
    I love how #5 and #7 are opposites of the same thing. 🙂
    Congratulations on being what I aspire to become – a professional published author.
    THE FURY looks good. Loved the trailer. It’s on my ToBeRead list!
    …Plus it’s a Book One so if I like it (don’t see why I wouldn’t) I have a NEW Series to read!
    Love from Canada

    Rob, I won’t lie and say being a writer is easy, but it’s very rewarding. Knowing that I’ve created something that gives other people as much pleasure to read as it did me to write (while maybe not in the same way) makes me feel ecstatic. As to research, well sometimes it is fun and sometimes boring depending on the subject…..but always necessary….LOL Good luck and keep at it.
    Thanks for putting The Fury on your TBR list. I hope you enjoy it. The Time Walkers are close to my heart.

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).
