Weekend Update: September 27-28, 2014

fallsbooks1Next week at Maine Crime Writers there will be posts by Susan Vaughan (Monday), Dorothy Cannell (Tuesday), John Clark (Wednesday), Sarah Graves (Thursday), and Kate Flora (Friday).

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

Ho Ho Homicide-Kaitlyn Dunnettfrom Kaitlyn Dunnett: The first review is out for Ho-Ho-Homicide (publication date October 28) and it’s a nice one from Publisher’s Weekly, calling the book the “enjoyable eighth” in the series and Liss MacCrimmon “engaging” and “level-headed.” The best line? That I “skillfully” use “misdirection to keep the reader guessing to the end.”  I can live with that!


from Barb Ross: I’m thrilled that Kensington has renewed my contract and will be publishing books 4, 5 & 6 in the Maine Clambake Mystery series. I’m working on Book 4 right now and can’t wait to find out what happens.

from Kate Flora: An interesting interview about cadaver dogs, and how dog lore can help writers with their plots at:

Kate will be at the Newport Cultural Center Saturday morning at 11:00 to talk about her new true crime, Death Dealer.

    Why is Gerry Boyle, author of the Brandon Blake novels, not in your group?
