Weekend Update: October 25-26, 2014

fallsbooks1Next week at Maine Crime Writers there will be posts by Dorothy Cannell on Monday and John Clark on Tuesday with a special guest post on Wednesday and our annual Halloween blogs on Thursday and Friday.

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

Kaitlyn Dunnett: The winner of an autographed copy of Ho-Ho-Homicide, chosen in a random drawing from those who commented on Monday’s post, is Nikki Andrews, who shared a great story about a “Christmas tree sampler.” Want another chance at a free book? I’m visiting Dru’s Book Musings on Monday and Wicked Cozy Authors on Tuesday. The direct link to “A Day in the Life on a Christmas Tree Farm” as written by Liss MacCrimmon for Dru’s Book Musings is http://wp.me/p3nHH-5yt but it won’t be live until October 27th.

Lea Wait: Busy weekend coming up NEXT week! On November 1 from 10-4 I’ll be one of the many authors at the Albany Children’s Book Festival — it’s at Albany Academies, just off New Scotland Road, in Albany, New York. And the next day, Sunday, November 2, I’ll be a guest on the live variety radio show (what fun! yes, a few places still do those! The Cold River Radio Show has been called the north country version of Garrison Keillor) in New Hampshire. That’s seven p.m. Sunday night in Intervale, NH. If you’d like to be part of the live audience (there’ll be a book and CD signing afterward) you can get tickets at White Birch Books in North Conway.

Kate Flora: This week, I’ll be at the Edythe Dyer Library in Hampden on Wednesday at 6:00 p.m., and in South Portland on Thursday at 7:00. I’m also very excited to be on Maine Calling this coming Thursday at noon for a special Halloween discussion of Stephen King’s book, Carrie.

A Taste of MurderBarb Ross: Kensington has packaged Clammed Up, the first book in my Maine Clambake Mystery series, with the first book in Joanne Fluke’s Hannah Swenson Mystery series and the first book in Lee Hollis’s Hayley Powell Food and Cocktails Mystery series set in Bar Harbor, Maine. The ebook, A Taste of Murder, interestingly called a “boxed set,” goes on sale on Monday, but you can pre-order it here.


An invitation to readers of this blog: Do you have news relating to Maine, Crime, or Writing? We’d love to hear from you. Just comment below to share. Don’t forget that comments are entered for a chance to win our wonderful basket of books and the very special moose and lobster cookie cutters.


And a reminder: If your library, school, or organization is looking for a speaker, we are often available to talk about the writing process, research, where we get our ideas, and other mysteries of the business. Contact Kate Flora: mailto: kateflora@gmail.com
