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.

Christmas is coming...

A Christmas Celebration

Christmas is coming, so this means there is lots to do - presents to buy, nativity plays and various church services to attend, beds to make up, travel arrangements to be made, food to order - the list goes on!

Cathie, Sophie and I can help you get in the right frame of mind!

Our Christmas Celebration is a collection of short stories reflecting all the various aspects of Christmas, which of course means different things to different people.

What about you - will you be going to St Paul's Cathedral, like the characters in one of our stories? Or seeing a local nativity play? Or trying to get used to the presence of a new family member or a partner's relations and feeling a bit awkward about it? Or trying to choose a perfect present? Or going on holiday? Or maybe feeling sad because Christmas isn't always a great time for everyone? What about people who tend to get left out, are lonely, isolated, or positively antisocial? How do they cope with watching other people have the time of their lives? Our stories will suit your mood, whatever form it takes!

We've also included a few quizzes and puzzles, some easy, some not so easy, but all the answers are in the book.

We feel Christmas is a time to think positively and look to the future, even if you can't wait for the holiday season itself to be over, for the shops to be open again, and to meet the challenges of a brand new year.

The book is available as a digital download or an attractive paperback - stocking filler? https://www.amazon.co.uk/Christmas-Celebration-Stories-Quizzes-Puzzles-ebook/dp/B013ZZN6IE/ref=sr_1_10?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1473678800&sr=1-10
