Welcome!

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.

Flash, flash, flash!


The big literary news this summer seems to be flash fiction. It's suddenly the thing to be writing, and - what's more - there are lots of competitions out there, inviting us to send in our short, short, short stories and win money!

Exeter-based writer and teacher of creative writing Cathie Hartigan is running a flash fiction competition with prizes. You can find details on her website at www.creativewritingmatters.co.uk, so do enter!

At Romantic Friday Writers http://fridaynightwriters.blogspot.com we have themed weekly challenges for romance writers: max 400 word count. Published and unpublished authors participate. It really is a fun thing to do, and members post snippets from published novels or that of WIPs.

  1. Hi,

    FF is a great exercise in honing one's work: cutting to the bone in tight writing! :)
