Weekend Update: July 29-30, 2017

Next week at Maine Crime Writers, there will be posts by Barb Ross (Monday), Kate Flora (Tuesday), Kaitlyn Dunnett/Kathy Lynn Emerson (Wednesday), Bruce Coffin (Thursday), and Brenda Buchanan (Friday).

In the news department, here’s what’s happening with some of us who blog regularly at Maine Crime Writers:

Several MCW writers and alums will be in Camden for the MWPA summer party at Tess Gerritsen’s house, including Kate Flora, Maureen Milliken, Dick Cass and Bruce Coffin, along with James Hayman and Chris Holm. You shouldn’t miss it, but in case we don’t see you there, we’ll share pictures.

This week, Jen Blood shared photos of her new house and pictures of some of the mystery plants in her new garden. People had so much fun trying to identify them all. If you want to get in on the action, check out her post from this past Thursday.

Meanwhile, a reminder that this month’s gift is a copy of John Clark and Kate Flora’s mother’s book, The Maine Mulch Murder. You know you’d like to have this in your library, so keep those comments coming.

Last Saturday, Dorothy Cannell, Lea Wait, Kathy Lynn Emerson, and Kate Flora were at the Beyond the Sea Book Festival in Lincolnville, along with our frequent MCW guest, Katherine Hall Page. Here are a few pictures from that event:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kate Flora is thrilled to share this review of her latest Joe Burgess, Led Astray, from George Smith of the Bangor Daily News: http://georgesmithmaine.com/articles/book-reviews/july/2017/another-suspenseful

An invitation to readers of this blog: Do you have news relating to Maine, Crime, or Writing? We’d love to hear from you. Just comment below to share.

And a reminder: If your library, school, or organization is looking for a speaker, we are often available to talk about the writing process, research, where we get our ideas, and other mysteries of the business. Contact Kate Flora
