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

It's that time of year again! All the hundreds of entries have been safely received, and also lots of requests for reports on these submissions.

This means the CreativeWritingMatters team of Sophie Duffy, Cathie Hartigan and myself will be reading day and night in order to find those sparkling literary diamonds we know will be there!

This year, we've received entries from everywhere in the world - from countries large and small, countries where the official language is English and countries where it's not, but where it is clearly well taught in schools and universities.

Who will be our winner this year? We don't know yet!

Who has won in the past? Last year, our winner was Rebecca Kelly.

Good luck to all the entrants this time! We're looking forward to finding out what you have sent us for our reading pleasure.
