Weekend Update: March 22-23, 2014

fallsbooks1Next week at Maine Crime Writers we’ll be featuring posts from Susan Vaughan (Monday) Vicki Doudera (Tuesday), Lea Wait (Wednesday), and Jim Hayman (Thursday), and on Friday there will be a guest post by Noelle Carle. 

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

Kaitlyn Dunnett: This isn’t writing news, but it relates to Gerry’s post two days ago. We had fourteen inches of new snow dumped on us here in the western Maine mountains for the first day of spring. Here’s what our wood supply looks like at the moment.

And here are some of those turkeys Gerry mentioned, taking a stroll across our back yard before the latest snowfall.


Spring in central Maine. Ain’t it grand?

Lea Wait: It is! And more snow scheduled for tomorrow … one appearance note:  Gerry Boyle and Jim Hayman and I will be speaking at the library in York, Maine, on Tuesday night, March 25, at 7 p.m. This is a panel that was postponed from February because of (guess what?!) — snow! I seem to be spending more on time on scheduling appearances than writing/editing right now, so stay tuned for other events in April, May … and beyond!

Barbara Ross: As of this writing (9:23 pm on Friday) Clammed Up is $1.99 on Kindle. So if you have avoided my previous entreaties, act now! P.S. As an added incentive and to link to the above, story takes place in June. It is warm and the flowers are blooming.

Kate Flora: We’re putting together a special blog week to celebration National Library Week, and if you’d like to be a guest blogger, please get in touch with me.

And if you’re sitting on the fence, jump off and join us at the Maine Crime Wave on April 19th at USM, and on Friday evening at the Holiday Inn, where MCWriters and attendees will be gathering in the bar.

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. Contact Kate Flora: kateflora@gmail.com
