    I bought LEVIATHAN in hard cover, because it is a physically beautiful book. Gorgeous endpapers, good illustrations. Also, I knew I’d need to loan it to my sons, and their friends. It was worth it; I can’t wait for the sequel.

    I haven’t read the Patricia Wrede, but I’m going to. And I’m completely jealous that you have IRON DUKE already, because I wanted it in my hands the minute I finished “Here There Be Monsters.”

    You already have The Iron Duke!
    I’m so jealous. I can’t wait to read it.

    I’m so jealous that you have Iron Duke. I’ve been waiting FOREVER for that book.

    I really liked Leviathan (I bought it in hardcover) and I can’t wait for the sequel. It is a really beautiful book. I could sit there and stare at the artwork for hours.

    I’m definitely putting Patricia Wrede on my list of authors to check out. That cover is gorgeous too.

    Yes, I heartily recommend “Leviathan” as well. The artwork is gorgeous (http://www.keiththompsonart.com/pages/grandmap.html) and the main characters are engaging. I can’t wait for the next one, “Behemoth”, to be out! I’m not a diehard fan of steampunk either but I love “Leviathan”.

    I recently read Soulless and Changeless by Gail Carriger and enjoyed both of them (can’t wait for the third, in fact). I’ll have to see about getting Iron Duke. Thanks for the recommendation.

    I have Iron Duke envy.

    I added A Matter of Magic to my wishlist. Jane’s Coming Soon page killed my book budget til January. *cries at the unfairness of a budget for books*

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).
