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