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.

Literary fiction...

What is a literary novel?

I've just looked up a definition of literary fiction on Wikipedia, and quite honestly I'm no wiser, except that it would appear genre and popular fiction can't be literary. But where do genre and popular end, and where does literary begin? Also, do these distinctions apply to writing for children?

I suppose people who call themselves literary novelists must know what they mean by literary fiction?

I just wish one of them would explain to me.
