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.

Exeter Novel Prize 2017

It's autumn, the evenings are getting dark and cold, so what better opportunity could there be to write (or at least to start) that novel that's been buzzing round your head like a mad bee?

The Exeter Novel Prize is an international award which has paved the way to commercial publication for many of its winners and shortlisters and longlisters. Our first and second overall winners - Su Bristow and Clare Harvey - are now doing really well and we are sure they both have long and distinguished literary careers ahead of them.

There are plenty of cash prizes, including the first prize of £500 generously sponsored by Exeter Writers.

So - how about it? You have a few months in which to write, polish and submit those first 10,000 words!
