Why not take this chance to follow the progress on my latest novel, week by week, in my Writer’s Diary. Each week’s entry takes less than a minute to read – so do take a look.


This is a blog about books and writing in which, I hope, the emphasis isn’t too much on me but instead is on books and writing generally. You’ll see a roll of pages which, if you’re reading this on your PC, will be on the right and, if you’re reading on a tablet, phone or other device could be anywhere.  You’ll know where to find it on your screen!

Given we’re talking about books, I do like to recommend a book of the month which you can flick to with ‘just one click’ (to quote a well-known company).

My own latest News and Chat is in the And to Begin section, while older pieces are filed under JottingsWriters may like to look at some musings on the writers’ life (mainly but not exclusively Crime Writers) collated as We Writers or at the How To Write A Damn Good Novel section, while pretty well anyone interested in books (and if you’re not, why are you here?) might take a peek at some attractive Ephemera of the Book Trade, a selection of Victorian Writers & Poets, some examples of Victorian Ways or the Have You Met? section, introducing some curious literary characters. And don’t forget Life, the World and Everything. Why not flick over and take a look?

But why am I telling you this, when with one simple click you can see any of these sections for yourself?

CWA Members BadgeIn summary then, this is a blog for writers and readers, for people who love books. (Though if you do want to know a little more about me or about any of my 20 or so books, check my website at Russell James ).

Most of my books, including those in Kindle versions, can be found at Amazon, by clicking here: Amazon

For those determined to be different, NOOK downloads:   Nook

Whatever else you do, please check back in to BOOKS MATTER from time to time. You never know what you’ll find.
