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.

I heard last week that one of my creative writing students has been shortlisted for the Luke Bitmead Award, which is sponsored by Legent Press. So I am feeling very smug and am hoping my student wins. I'll let the whole world know if this happens!

It's so lovely when a student does well. It makes me feel I am a good teacher.

So still wearing big grin...


  1. I'm sure you're an excellent teacher. Good luck to your student and congratulations to him/her for being shortlisted.

  2. Thank you, Debs - if student wins I shall be VERY delighted and will ask if I can go public!

  3. Hi Margaret.

    I was awarded a blog award recently and was asked to pass on to other blogs I enjoy to read and yours was one of the blogs I chose. To accept and read about the award, click on this post http://luciewheeler.blogspot.com/2011/11/liebster-blog-award.html

    Hope you are well x
