Carina Press, Harlequin Ltd
November 2009 — Present
Angela James, Editorial Director of Carina Press, Harlequin's digital-first fiction imprint, is both an avid reader of digital books and a veteran of and advocate for the digital publishing industry. She has enjoyed over a decade of experience in her field, including successfully launching, building and serving as editorial lead for two digital-first presses, Samhain Publishing and, since 2009, Harlequin's Carina Press.
She has edited bestselling authors such as Shannon Stacey, Jaci Burton, Lauren Dane, Ilona Andrews, Lilith Saintcrow, Shelly Laurenston and more. She was profiled in Fast Company magazine as a digital pioneer in the romance publishing industry and is the creator of the popular self-editing online workshop for authors, Before You Hit Send. In 2013, Angela was named New York Romance Writers of America's Golden Apple Editor of the Year.
Angela is still acquiring and is currently on the hunt for a shifter-focused paranormal romance series she can grow, dark, edgy, sexy contemporary romance—the more limits pushed the better—, an erotic science fiction romance series (set in space. With aliens.) and romantic suspense that features anti-heroes and anti-heroines (who get their happily ever after, of course!)
