Weekend Update: September 6-7, 2014

fallsbooks1Next week at Maine Crime Writers there will be posts by Vaughn Hardacker (Monday), Vicki Doudera (Tuesday), Lea Wait (Wednesday), James Hayman (Thursday), and Barbara Ross (Friday).

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

Lea Wait:  This week I’m celebrating the publication of the 7th book in my Shadows Antique Print mystery series. Available now in ebook and print forms, online and in bookstores, Shadows on a Maine Christmas takes Maggie Summer to Maine to celebrate the holiday with her beau, Will !cid_487CF410-53E3-4F9A-B4E9-3E3180900689Brewer, and his aged Aunt Nettie. It’s time: they need to make major decisions about the future of their relationship. But in the meantime, blackmail and murder get in the way of a totally Merry Christmas. Mysterious Women called it “beautifully written; Suspense Magazine said “Keeps the reader guessing until the very last page.” and Publisher’s Weekly commented, “loving descriptions of the Maine winter and the area’s strong sense of community.”

On Wednesday evening, September 10, at 7 p.m. I’ll be speaking about Shadows on a Maine Christmas at the Wiscasset Library on High Street in Wiscasset, Maine. Saturday, September 13, I’ll be stopping at Twice Told Tales,/Moonstone Mystery Bookstore in Flemington, New Jersey to sign books there. Anyone near Flemington who’d like me to sign a book for them, call Marilyn Thiele at 908-788-9094 and she’ll reserve one for you. And later on September 13 my husband, Bob Thomas, and I will be at the Blank Canvas Gallery, 19 West Bridge Street in New Hope, PA, for the opening of an exhibit of his paintings, from 5 until 8 p.m. Would love to see readers and art lovers there!

Kate Flora: Belatedly chiming in here from the Writers’ Police Academy down in Greensboro, North Carolina, to share this link to a book trailer for my next Joe Burgess mystery, And Grant You Peace, created by the Amazing Tiffany Schofield at Five Star: http://youtu.be/BpKpQvJMoCY
 I’d love to hear what you think. The book will be out in October.
