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.

Five pretty twinklers...

It's always great to get a good review and so I was delighted to receive this one from Long and Short Reviews, a prestigious US website.


I'm now entitled to display the coveted LASR magic button which comes in Wedding Diary blue. It's so pretty and I am so thrilled!

The bad stuff...

There's plenty to be said for being a self-employed writer, even though most of us don't tend to earn a lot of money. Many of us earn some money, we are our own bosses, we can go to work in our pyjamas and we don't have to join the rat race on the daily commute.

But there are drawbacks, and in this chapter of the online free guide to creative writing, creative writing teachers Cathie Hartigan and I suggest what can drag us down and what we can do about it. Here's the link: http://www.creativewritingmatters.co.uk/the-creative-writing-students-handbook.html

Anybody got any more comments/suggestions? Facebook, Twitter, the Creative Writing Matters website or this blog would love to hear from you.
