    Oh the drama!

    Freakin’ hysterical.

    You know you have to save these notes. They’re so precious.

    Too cute! My daughter is 9 years old now and drafts contracts for us to sign…the last one involved her cleaning her room for a month and getting a hamster. Save those notes! 🙂

    I like how yelling has a visual aspect akin to barf. Hee hee I also like her consciousness in recycling both sides of the paper.

    That is awesome. I sense a legal career for her in the future.

    Ha! This reminds me of one day when my older sister and I made fun of my very sensitive little sister. She was about 7. After we made fun of her, she went upstairs to our room. A few minutes later we heard something loudly bouncing down the steps. It turned out to be the head of her favorite doll, and inside she had stuffed a note that read “You hurt my feelings.” Way to get the point across! We still tease her about it.

    Awww, the poor artistic kid. Why’d yah have to yell at her? Creativity like that must be celebrated!! ‘I don’t know’ is code for ‘Iz concentrating. There is genius at work in my brain.’ Lol.. Greatest part is the flashlight action, illuminating the note. Love her!

    That’s pretty impressive spelling for a six-year-old. You have taught her well! 🙂

    I love this age. So emotional. Everything is big and dramatic. I love how she has the two of you yelling as if fire is coming out of you. Tell her sometimes I feel the same way when people yell at me.

    That is one of the sweetest things. Ever.

    Hi Angela

    Having an almost 6 yr old grandson, and knowing his great literacy levels, I am most impressed at “mscketow”. I think that would have pulled him up!

    Hee hee! B. Is clearly awesome. Reminds me of the signs Zoe has posted on her bedroom door: No Babies Allowed.

    I love this! I have a 5yo daughter and was able to read the mosquito sign LOL! This is all so true with the drama and the notes. I was recently left a note after I yelled to “stop the nonsense” (of, you know, being a 5yo!). It said “Mommy Imo sure for ol dis nos” (I am sorry for all this nonsense. I am scrapbooking it! These little notes are precious!

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).
