    It’s good to see you posting. Do it more often:-).

    We’re going to be at Disneyworld in late July, too. The oldest’s birthday is July 30, and she insists on visiting the Magic Kingdom that day. I have been so far out of the romance writing world for so long that I didn’t realize RWA was down there at the same time. Dang… I actually could have attended for once (although exactly what I’d do with the kids, I really don’t know!).

    The one year we went to Orlando, over a July 4th weekend, my brother-in-law refused to go because of the heat. But it was in the low to mid-70s all week, and up here in PA at the same time, it was high 90s! LOL

    Hope it works out that way for your vacation! πŸ™‚

    We went to Disney in August and survived it. Just be prepared to put up your hair and sweat buckets. Hope you all have a great time!

    I’d just like to say I’m feeling kinda silly after reading your blog yesterday. I had added this as a blog to follow (through Google Reader’s blog suggestions) because I liked the name, and I’m always interested in what editors might have to say, but I didn’t actually go into the archives until yesterday when I abruptly realized “Angie” might well equal Angela James of Carina. Awesome blog, awesome new e-press!

    Oh, Ellen, that’s too bad! Will you be there the date of the big signing? You could at least attend that and reconnect with some of your author friends!

    Natalie, I’ll hold out hope!

    H-gal, I’d forgotten you went last summer. I’ll bring plenty of ponytail holders and watter bottles.

    Elizabeth, I guess you never actually visited the blog, just read it on Google Reader and missed my bio, lol. That IS funny. Who did you think you were following?

    A woman named Angie who was a darned good editor. I really liked your blog name. πŸ™‚ Not one of my brighter moments, I admit, especially given I wanna submit to Carina.

    Glad to see you back! I thought about bringing my 4 yo to Disney World during RWA, but the trip logistics didn’t work out for us. Boohoo. He’s been asking to go ever since this winter when a few of his daycare friends went, so my destination is super top-secret. Luckily, he doesn’t go online yet.

    Oh Brianna will have such a fun surprise! You are a Nice Mommy for sure! I am taking my hubby to Epcot and staying at a Disney hotel for his birthday the weekend before the conference. But we are only staying for a long weekend. I didn’t realize RWA dates were so close, but I’d only be able to go to the booksigning. I won’t be there for that day. It looks like an amazing list of authors!

    Have 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).
