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.

Out and about...

Most writers spend a lot of their time alone in their studies with their imaginations, but sometimes we get out and about. I have two out-and-about events coming up and would be delighted to meet anyone who'd like to meet me.


A date for your diary!

Friday 6th July 2012

Linda Mitchelmore and I will be at The Bookshelf in Saltash, Cornwall:

We will be signing books and talking to customers. Do come in and have a glass of wine with us!

A second date for your diary!

This and lots of other West Country literary events are on the Cyprus Well website at http://www.cypruswell.com/calendar-news.php - it's well worth a look.


  1. I'd have loved to attend -Used to live near Exeter until we moved to Cumbria 4 years ago. I'm meeting more writers from the South West since I moved away, than I know here. Best Regards to you.

  2. Thank you, Suzy! I'm going to Penrith in the middle of July, and am taking wellies as sort of reverse psychology, if that's what I mean. Anyway, I'm hoping that if I take my wellies the sun will shine!
