Weekend Update: May 17-18, 2014

fallsbooks1Next week at Maine Crime Writers there will be posts by Susan Vaughan (Tuesday), Jim Hayman (Wednesday), Barb Ross (Thursday), and Al Lamanda (Friday), with a special guest blog on Monday from Jenny Milchman, who just won the Mary Higgins Clark award for Cover of Snow.

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

murder at mullings coverDorothy Cannell’s Murder at Mullings, first in a new series, is now available in both print and ebook formats. It has lots to appeal to both mystery fans and those who love an English country house setting. Missing Downton Abbey? Florence Norris is housekeeper at Mullings, where “nothing ever happens” . . .  until someone is murdered. There’s an “ornamental hermit” in the story, too. Dorothy gives Margaret Maron’s husband Joe credit for his inclusion.

Monday night, May 19, at 6:30, Lea Wait will be speaking about “Editing: Good Writing is Re-Writing” at the Conway Public Library in Conway, New Hampshire. Her talk will be open to the public, refreshments will be served, and copies of her books will be available for purchase and signing. Lea will also be speaking on Wednesday, May 21; this time to a book group at the Cascade Brook School in Farmington, Maine, about her Uncertain Glory.
