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.

Book of the Month - August 2011

My book of the month for August is Sophie Duffy's lovely debut novel The Generation Game, which is one of those families-and-relationships stories that hook the reader from the very first page. Seasoned with plenty of wry, delicious humour, and full of wonderfully-realised characters who stay in the reader's mind, this is a summer must-read.

Sophie's own journey on the rocky road to publication has been a fascinating one, revealing that determination and persistence can pay off. Originally turned down by publishers because they didn't know where to put The Generation Game in their lists, Sophie entered her novel for national awards and won two of them, the second being the Luke Bitmead Bursary sponsored by Luke's family and Legend Press, which has now published Sophie's novel.
