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.

Freebie again - this time on Amazon

My latest novel The Wedding Diary is free on Amazon Kindle right now - lots of good reviews, so why not give it a go? It's a funny, frothy romantic comedy, so probably just the ticket for this time of year.

Think hot chocolate, a cosy fire to keep you warm, and lots of love from me to you!

Making some money...

The latest chapter of The Creative Writing Student's Handbook is about making money from your writing. It's on this link and it's free to read until the end of November. Short stories for magazines, writing competitions, non-fiction articles - these could all help pay for Christmas.


See the Creative Writing Matters website for more suggestions about making money from your writing. Your life story - if it's interesting and you're willing to spend time promoting it, why not get it up there on Kindle, Smashwords and other ebook platforms?

Freebie-deebie-do and hurrah hurrah hurrah!

I am so thrilled to learn that my very own publisher Choc Lit has won the coveted title of Publisher of the Year at the Festival of Romance 2013 tonight.

Beloved by all its authors, Choc Lit shows other publishers how it should be done by asking real readers what they think of all submissions and by involving its authors in the publishing process.

A fabulous result, Choc Lit, and may many more successes follow.

My own latest Choc Lit title The Wedding Diary is free on iTunes for a few days, so anyone with an iPad who would like to try a piece of Choc Lit can do so for nothing now! See what you think and let me know? Here's the link to your freebie - https://itunes.apple.com/gb/book/the-wedding-diary/id631166093
