The question on everybody’s lips:

What am I writing now?

Another non-crime book.  (I write crime, general and historical fiction, and non-fiction too.)  At present I’m working on the fourth (and final?) draft of a story about forbidden love in the Victorian church – After She Drowned

Will it be ready for Christmas?

I hope so.

So perhaps the best thing you can do for now is: read one of my others!

Kindle downloads of all my books can be had direct from Amazon: Russell James page

Some books that don’t appear to be by Russell James (but are):

Vic Romances cover jpeg  Great-Grandmother’s Secrets:

5 of my great-grandmother’s wonderful Victorian Romances have been gathered together in one book from Prospero – in ebook and printed form, ludicrously cheap and every story illustrated with original engravings. Take a look.

One way or another, all my books are available from Amazon. They’re astonishingly cheap (or should that be just plain ‘astonishing’?)  Why not try one?  For example (another “Oh, is that by Russell James too?” book):

Stories I Can’t Tell    CLICK TO GRAB IT!

(an illustrated confessional “by” Maggie King, “with” Russell James)
Something different – very different! – written with the “very close co-operation” of the fabulous Maggie King. It invites you – and you alone – to sit with Maggie as she shows you the contents of her trunk of theatrical souvenirs. What secrets will you find?

On the eve of World War Two Maggie King has been waiting for me – Russell James – to join her and ghost-write a celebrity memoir. But I’m not there yet; there’s only you and Maggie, just the two of you, in front of a cozy roaring fire. Maggie’s theatrical trunk, you’ll find, is packed with programmes, handbills, letters and photos, both from her own career and that of her parents – Albert and Annie King (‘the Royal Family’), middle-ranking performers in Music Hall and Variety. While you sit with her she recalls the ups and downs of her rackety life, including hits and flops, romance and tragedy, the men who mattered and the man who caused the scandal that blighted her career.
Full details are on the Maggie King book page – “Stories I Can’t Tell”


Then there’s this – another book into which Russell James has thrust his heavy hand, and this time: a crime book!

Read all about it on the DOCTOR KRISTAL page – here

Exit 39
My most autobiographical novel to date – hence under my name!  Though you might not think it’s autobiographical, since it is an up-to-the-minute tragicomedy narrated into an iPhone by one Crosby Ravensworth, a 35-year-old executive too busy to scatter his father’s ashes or to sort out the dysfunctional family he has left behind, or even to decide which of the four women in his life he should connect to. But with any luck, he’ll find that even the darkest clouds have silver linings and this could be the beginning of a new life. Click EXIT 39
