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.

The Golden Chain

It's always exciting to see a new cover, and I must say I'm delighted with this one for my forthcoming paperback The Golden Chain, which will be published on 1 May 2011. By then, the snow will have all gone and it will be summer, hurrah!

This novel is the sequel to The Silver Locket and continues the story of a Dorset family into the Depression of the 1930s.


  1. That's a fantastic cover, Margaret. I'm so pleased for you! I'm already looking forward to reading it.
    Couldn't resist turning the The Silver Locket outwards in Waterstones earlier today.The spine is lovely but the front is spectacular!

  2. Whoever is doing your covers is brilliant! First the Silver Locket, now this one - both just gorgeous!

  3. The man who does my covers is called Steve, and he clearly knows a thing or two about pleasing authors and readers!

  4. Hi,

    Lovely covers! "The Silver Locket" implied Edwardian Era novel.

    And, The Golden Chain image is definitely giving off vibes of the Charleston! ;)

    Now I want to ask: what inspired you to write in these periods and why based on a Dorset family?


  5. Hi Francine

    I've always been interested in that period of history,a time when we seemed to move from the past into the modern era. Dorset - I love that county, it's so beautiful, and when I'm there stories seem to come pouring into my head. I'm not quite sure why. There's an interview with Lucie Wheeler on this link which elaborates a little more! http://luciewheeler.blogspot.com/2010/09/interview-with-margaret-james.html
