Here’s the lineup for next week at Maine Crime Writers: Barb Ross (Monday), John Clark (Tuesday), Kate Flora (Wednesday), Gerry Boyle (Thursday), and Susan Vaughan (Friday). On Saturday we’ll have a group post, probably on the topic “What Writers are Reading This Summer.”
And in news from our regular contributors:
From Kate Flora:Redemption, winner of the 2013 Maine Literary Award for Crime fiction, is now available as an e-book and a trade paperback. Those waiting for the e-book can find it at their favorite reseller by searching for ISBN 9781614174592. Readers preferring a “real” book can search for ISBN 978-0-9895767-0-3. The publisher is Sennebec Hill Press.
From Kaitlyn Dunnett: We finally (probably) have a title for the opus due on September 1st. The 8th Liss MacCrimmon mystery, to be published near the end of 2014, has been “the Christmas tree farm book” (or Liss #8; or Kathy/Kaitlyn’s 50th book) while I was writing it, but now (big sigh of relief) both editor and agent seem to agree that they like Auld Lang Crime for a title . . . so long as the sales department thinks that it is Christmassy enough. If they don’t, it’s likely to end up with the rather boring title, The Christmas Tree Farm Murders even though that lacks a Scottish reference. Stay tuned.
From Barb Ross: Kaitlyn–I love Auld Lang Crime! I hope they go with it. The schedule of panels for Bouchercon 2013 are up here. For some reason, we’re not supposed to tweet or blog about until Tuesday–even though the schedule is public. So let’s just say, there are some familiar names on it! Hope to see some Maine Crime Writers fans there.
An invitation to our readers: Do you have news relating to Maine, Crime, or Writing? We’d love to hear from you in the “comments” section.
