Weekend Update: October 11-12, 2014

fallsbooks1Next week at Maine Crime Writers there will be posts by Susan Vaughan (Monday), John Clark (Tuesday), Jayne Hitchcock (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:

sconelargeKaitlyn Dunnett: Turns out the $1.99 special on Scone Cold Dead (2nd book in the Liss MacCrimmon series) that I mentioned last weekend will last until October 21st AND it’s at B&N for Nook as well as at Amazon for Kindle. This is one of those things, like titles and cover art, over which the author has no control, although I’m certainly in favor of lowering ebook prices. No one tells me much ahead of time, either, so I’m just passing on information as I get it. It does appear, though, that Kilt Dead, the first book in the series, has also dropped in price to $1.99. If you already have these two books, tell your cozy-reading friends. The prices will go back up before you know it.

Barb Ross: Next Saturday, October 18, 2014, from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm, I’ll be featured at the Author Luncheon at South Freeport Congregational Church, 98 South Freeport Road
South Freeport ME 04078. I’d love to see you there. The cost is $15 per person. Reserve a ticket in advance by calling 207-865-4012; no tickets will be sold at the door.

Kate Flora: This coming Tuesday, I’ll be speaking about my new books at the Curtis Library in

At the Wilmington, MA library with my two new babies

At the Wilmington, MA library with my two new babies

Brunswick at 7:00 pm. The Curtis mystery series is always a treat to attend and I’m looking forward to sharing my two new books with readers who’ve been hearing about them for a long time. As some of you know, I worked on Death Dealer for five years.

As special treat is that the publisher arranged to send me copies of my new Joe Burgess, And Grant You Peace, in advance of the publication date, so I’d have them for Tuesday. Hope I’ll see some of you there.

Kaitlyn Dunnett (again): There’s a review and giveaway of Vampires, Bones and Treacle Scones (Liss’s Halloween book, now in paperback) at King’s River Life. The drawing is October 18. Click here for more information.
