In the news department, here’s what’s happening with some of us who blog regularly at Maine Crime Writers:
Kate Flora: I’m taking a break from writing and editing the week after Christmas to read the new books I’m getting (I hope!). Meanwhile, this popped up on the MWPA Facebook page this week, and it is too wonderful not to share: http://pages.towson.edu/lieb/bestchristmascard.html Writers will appreciate this; readers will get a glimpse into what we go through when we submit what we think is a finished manuscript.
In other news, the winner of our newsletter giveaway is Carole Price, and those books will be heading out to California soon. But don’t despair, because there WILL be other giveaways. We love our readers.
And here’s another chance for you to get involved: For our New Year’s post, we’re putting up pictures that are especially Maine. If you have one you’d like us to include, send it to me: firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
