Weekend Update: June 7-8, 2014

fallsbooks1Next week at Maine Crime Writers there will be posts by John Clark (Monday), Sarah Graves (Tuesday), Kate Flora (Wednesday), and Vicki Doudera (Friday), with a guest blog from Maureen Milliken on Thursday.

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

Al, Barb, and Kate at the Maine Literary AwardsMCW regulars Barb Ross and Al Lamanda, as well as our alum, Paul Doiron, were this year’s nominees for the Maine Literary Awards. Al took home the blue balloon for Sunrise. Congratulations to all of our stellar writers! As Barb noted, getting nominated for an Agatha and the Maine Literary Award for Crime Fiction for her paperback original, Clammed Up, was very exciting. Al is a previous Edgar nominee.

Since Al and Kate share a publisher, their publisher, Waterville’s own Five Star/Cengage, made a big poster for their Facebook website:
