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.

Turning Japanese

Last Saturday, I did a booksigning in Abergavenny Waterstone's with Christina Courtenay, which was fun. We handed out chocolates and lollies to shoppers (we're not married to dentists) and they stopped to admire our gorgeous kimonos, which we wore to promote Christina's novel The Scarlet Kimono.

We were so glad we did wrap up warm! The door was open all afternoon, an Arctic wind was blowing through the streets of Abergavenny, and we'd have frozen to death in ordinary clothes.

Most shoppers assumed we were sales assistants and we got asked lots of questions about where they could find jigsaws and perfumes. In a bookshop? Oh, well...

Thanks to lovely Kathryn Eastman for taking the photograph of us.

  1. Yes, it can be very chilly - especially if you're near the door. Perhaps Christina's kimonos could become the new book-signing uniform? Well done both of you.
