Coming up this week: Barb Ross (Monday), John Clark (Tuesday), Kate Flora (Wednesday), Gerry Boyle (Thursday), Kaitlyn Dunnett (Friday), and on Saturday, special guest Laurie Meunier Graves from the A Good Eater blog. Laurie was a founder and editor of Wolf Moon Journal.
Here’s what’s new this week from the bloggers at MCW:
Barb Ross: My new book Clammed Up (coming out September 3rd) got a four and a half star review from Romantic Times Book Reviews. Four and a half stars is the most they give, and the designation puts me in the same category and on the same page (literally) as the latest books from Sue Grafton, Lee Child and HPR. I’ll take it!
☆☆☆☆½ “This first installment in a new series is a real treat….The story flows effortlessly, and the setting is a character on its own as Maine and its inhabitants give readers a taste of East Coast life.”
Speaking of book reviews, stay tuned for more of those from John Clark.
From Kate Flora comes news that the first Joe Burgess novel, Playing God, is now available in paperback (ISBN 978-0-9895767-0-3) with a great new cover.
Kate will also be teaching the day-long workshop “Crime Fiction 101” at Rockland Public Library on Saturday, August 24. Limited to 15 participants, registration closes this Friday, August 9. For more info: www.mainewriters.org/events/category/workshops/
Lea Wait: And Kate and I will be speaking about our mysteries and mystery writing at the Bailey-Orrs Island Yacht Club on Orrs Island at 7 p.m. on Thursday, August 8. Plus, this morning, August 4, I’ll be interviewed on Harry Rinker’s national syndicated antiques and collectibles call-in radio show, “Whatcha Got,” about Shadows on a Cape Cod Wedding and collecting antique prints.
