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.

Strictly fun - 2

So we got in.

We had a wonderful evening. It started with the recording of some links for future shows, and this was totally fabulous because I had a chance to listen to one of my absolute heroes performing live. We were told that if we revealed who it was we would be hunted down and executed, so I can't tell you. But he was just amazing, and I was so glad I'd had the chance to see and hear him perform. Then there was the dancing and that was fabulous, too. The judges were mean to Victoria. She wasn't as bad as they said.

We weren't permitted to take photographs during the show, but I nipped around with my camera when I was allowed and here's me with my new cuddly friend -

and DD2 with Bruno, her new cuddly friend. We didn't catch Craig on his way out. We think he was avoiding us!

We had such a great time we're going to apply for tickets for the next series. Apparently, a million people applied this time around. So we're going to have to be very, very, very lucky to go again. We'll make sure we arrive early next time.


  1. Wow, Margaret. That's fantastic. So glad you got in! Cx

  2. Did you make the screen when the camera panned the audience, Margaret? How very exciting x

  3. I don't know if we were on telly. I'll have to check it out on iplayer later today. DD2 looked lovely so it would be nice if she got her own shot!

  4. Lucky you! Glad you had such a good time. Love going out with my DD.
