Happy Fourth of July to all our US readers!
In the news department, here’s what’s happening with some of us who blog regularly at Maine Crime Writers:
From Kaitlyn Dunnett: I’m having a drawing for an ARC (Advance Reading Copy) of Ho-Ho-Homicide, the next Liss MacCrimmon Scottish-American Heritage mystery. To find out how to enter, scroll down and read yesterday’s post from me. I don’t actually have my ARCs yet, but they’ll be arriving soon. The publication date for the hardcover edition is October 28, so the winner will get to read the book months ahead of everyone else.
From Barb Ross: The audiobook of Clammed Up has been released by Audible. It joins the already-released audiobook of Boiled Over. To see it on Audible, click here.
Also, my Maine hometown paper, the Boothbay Register (an old-fashioned broadsheet–and I mean the old, broad, broadsheet size) did a great story on Boiled Over and me. See it here.
From Lea Wait: Saturday afternoon, June 28, at 3:30, I’ll be talking about my Shadows of a Down East Summer at the Mainely Murders Bookstore, Maine’s only mystery bookstore, on 1 Bourne Street in Kennebunk. If you’re in the area … stop in! I plan to bring a few Winslow Homer wood engravings as “show and tell” items, since Homer is a character in the sections of my book set in 1890 Prouts Neck, Maine.
From Kate Flora: One of Maine’s most fabulous summer events is Books in Boothbay on Saturday, July 12th, a book fair at the Boothbay Railway Museum featuring Maine authors of all stripes and genres. Many of us will be there, and we hope that you will be, too! We’ll have a basket of books and Maine goodies to give away, and nothing is more fun than being in a room where the creativity simmers in the summer air.
