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.

The Exeter Story Prize - the Great Read gets under way...

The Exeter Story Prize has fast become one of the major short story competitions in the UK, attracting entries from all over the world and offering great cash prizes as well as trophies to the winners.

The prize incorporates the Trisha Ashley Award for a humorous story, so as the Big Read of the 2017 entries begins we're hoping to have our ribs tickled by a good few of the entries.

You can find details of past competitions and learn more about Creative Writing Matters here: http://www.creativewritingmatters.co.uk/.

Past winners of our competition prizes include Su Bristow, Simon Kettlewell, Richard Buxton and Clare Harvey, whose fabulous novels you can find on Amazon and elsewhere. We know we're going to discover lots of fresh new talent this month and next. So we're very excited!

Finally - if you'd like to find out what kinds of stories have delighted the judges in the past, check out our selection in this anthology of stories from the 2016 competitions. https://www.amazon.co.uk/2016-Exeter-Story-Prize-Collection-ebook/dp/B01M2CX5J2/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1494092308&sr=1-1&keywords=exeter+story+prize
