    You are not alone in wondering about those meetings. Many folks say they can only get their reading and editing done at home.

    YOU suggested a meeting?

    Resistance is futile…

    And this is one of the many reasons I don’t miss office work. Mind, working for a food service chain is physically exhausting and the pay is risible, but hey, no meetings for me! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Between meetings, phonecalls, voicemail and emails it’s a wonder I get any work done. Which might explain my 12-13hr days at the office. ๐Ÿ™

    Long version: schools are very meeting-heavy, too. We have mandated department meetings every two weeks. When I was department chair, I also got to attend the pre-meeting (to plan the meeting) and then the post-meeting (to reflect on the meeting). This doesn’t even count the added all-staff meetings or sub-committee meetings.

    Short version: I feel your pain.

    You are so lucky you get to work from home. I wish I had a job where I could stay in my PJ all day if I wanted to. Instead I work in the vary demanding food industry (HATE IT). Youโ€™re a lucky lady. ๐Ÿ™‚

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).
