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.

Woman's Weekly Romantic Fiction Award

It's turning out to be a good week for my friends in terms of getting into the national magazines, and it's only Wednesday! Plenty of short stories to choose from, and the current edition of Woman's Weekly features the shortlist of 3 best romantic novels written since 1960, which are EVERY WOMAN FOR HERSELF by Trisha Ashley, A WOMAN OF SUBSTANCE by Barbara Taylor Bradford and Linda Gillard's STARGAZING.

Actually, to be honest, BTB isn't my friend. I have never met BTB. But Linda and Trisha - woo hoo, way to go, ladies!


  1. Thanks, Margaret! It was such an honour to even be on the long-list with some of my idols - Georgette Heyer, Mary Stewart and Dorothy Dunnett. And now the short-list! Pinch me someone...

  2. Ooh, don't want to pinch you, it would hurt. Many, many congratulations!
