Weekend Update: March 1-2, 2014

fallsbooks1Next week at Maine Crime Writers we’ll be featuring posts from John Clark (Monday) Kate Flora (Tuesday), Gerry Boyle (Wednesday), Kaitlyn Dunnett (Thursday), and Vicki Doudera (Friday). 

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


Don’t forget about the upcoming Maine Crime Wave. The link below takes you to the information page. Check it out. Participating from Maine Crime Writers blog, current and alums, are Gerry Boyle, Paul Doiron, Kaitlyn Dunnett, Kate Flora, and Julia Spencer-Fleming.


Lea Wait:  Excited that my Uncertain Glory, to be published April 4, got a wonderful Kirkus review …”Wait … captures the infrequently depicted Northern homefront effects of the Civil War … Joe’s homespun voice captures the full flavor of a smart and determined kid with his eyes firmly on the future, richly evoking time and place.” Hurrah!  Taking a few deep breaths after completed Twisted Threads, my first needlepoint mystery, and editing Pizza To Die For … a middle grade contemporary mystery. Definitely not bored!

Kaitlyn Dunnett: Just got my first look at the cover for my October book, Ho-Ho-Homicide. It will probably be tweaked a little before publication. They usually insert quotes and such, but this will give you the idea. My editor sent it with the comment “feel free to share” so I figure that means I can post it here. Enjoy!
