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 - October 2011

On this unseasonably hot but very welcome Saturday in October, I have great pleasure in presenting my October Book of the Month, which is Star Struck by Jane Lovering. It's about 30 degrees in my back garden - which is lovely, the strawberries are in flower again, poor confused babies - so it's particularly appropriate that I should be telling you about a book set in the Nevada desert.

Jane is a rising star in the world of romantic comedy with a welcome sharp edge to it. She writes about characters who are damaged in some way, but who want to get on with life and love anyway, so the reader always wants them to triumph over their difficulties.

In Star Struck, Skye Threppel is slowly and painfully recovering from a devastating road accident. At the instigation of her best friend's brother she finds herself going to a convention for fans of a science fiction television series, hoping to meet her hero. She does meet him, but she also meets equally damaged screen writer Jack Whitaker, and he's running away from something, too. So - will Jack and Skye be good for each other, or will they be very, very bad?

This lovely book invites us to find out.
