    Wow. Just… wow. I’ve never been prouder to be an erotic romance author.

    Thank you.

    Great speech on paper. Bet it kicked ass out loud. I hope none of the businessmen (that I understand were present) sprayed food/drink around with the unexpectedness of the content. Lol!

    Awesome speech Angela:
    I check Samhain’s web-site for books daily. So glad they & you are brave enough to publish so many diverse authors & genres.

    Angela, I’ve heard so much about electronic publishing over the past year or so. I’m not ready for that stage yet. But I’ll keep it in mind for the future. It’s true. It’s popular and high in demand. Thanks for sharing.

    This is so interesting. It’s good to research this kinds of things. Although I don’t write in those genres, I keep the info in mind for future reference. Good blog. FI, Miss Snark was an evil editor on her blog, before it ended in 2007.

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).
