The James Gang


December James Gang

Each month, I interview authors or publishing insiders who have some form of "James" in their names or in their books. My December James Gang interviewee is contemporary women's fiction author, Mandy K. James!

1. Let’s get the most important question asked first: Why James?

It is my real name. I took the name James when I married my husband, not sure about the background -- sorry!

2. What fiction genre(s) and/or sub-genre(s) do you write?

Contemporary Women's Fiction.

3. Tell us about your latest release.

Righteous Exposure cover

I have an ebook -- Righteous Exposure (written under A. K. James) -- out at the moment:

A Stitch in Time Cover

My latest will be published in April of next year. It is called A Stitch in Time (written under Amanda James):

A Stitch in Time blurb:

A stitch in time saves nine...or does it?

Sarah Yates is a thirty-something history teacher, divorced, disillusioned and desperate to have more excitement in her life. Making all her dreams come true seems about as likely as climbing Everest in stilettos.

Then one evening the door bell rings, and the handsome and mysterious John Needler brings more excitement than Sarah could ever have imagined. John wants Sarah to go back in time...

Sarah is whisked from the Sheffield Blitz to the suffragette movement in London to the Old American West, trying to make sure people find their happy endings. The only question is, will she ever be able to find hers?

4. Is there a core story and/or a theme(s) in your books?

I always have a love story, and I always have moral problems to make the reader question the actions of the characters. I like to think of the author and reader having a dialogue.

5. Do you have a favorite hero and/or heroine in your books and why?

The current one is always the favourite. But I love them all.

6. What do you enjoy most about being an author?

The joy of being able to create whole new worlds, lives, characters and sometimes larger-than-life situations out of my head. I love making up stories, and I love it when people tell me they like them, too.

7. Do you have any awards, reviews or kudos you’d like to tell us about?

I have 21 excellent reviews on Amazon for Righteous Exposure: 18 five-star and 3 four-star.

8. How do you promote your books and your author brand?

I belong to Twitter and Facebook, and by word-of-mouth. My publishers help, too: and

9. What is your next project?

My work-in-progress is called Exactly Like You and is about twins who were separated at birth. They are very different, and sparks fly when they get together again.

10. Do you have a bit of wisdom you’d like to impart or a favorite quote?

Yes. Never give up and never forget your dreams. I borrowed the bit about dreams from the man who carved the Crazy Horse Memorial in the Black Hills. If you have never been, do try and go. It is truly inspirational.


Thank you, Mandy! My January James Gang interviewee will be debut author, Dakota James!
