I've set up this blog so that all my friends, relations and colleagues in the world of writing can keep up to speed with what I'm doing - from now on, I'll never have to say sorry for not keeping in touch.

Or anyway, that's the plan.

So do please link up with me on Facebook and Twitter - https://www.facebook.com/margaret.james.5268 and https://twitter.com/majanovelist

You can find my novels as digital downloads on Apple iTunes, Kobo, Kindle and Nook, and most are available as print paperbacks, too.

Harry Bowling Prize for New Writing

Harry was a hugely successful author of Cockney sagas, and after his death his publisher and agent decided to set up a literary prize in his memory. It's quite hard to find novel-writing competitions. There are zillions of short story competitions out there, but very few for aspiring novelists.

If you're an aspiring novelist, it might be worth checking out the Harry Bowling website at www.harrybowlingprize.net. The longlist for the 2010 prize is published today, but there will be a new competition in 2012, so you have plenty of time to get that novel started.
