Weekend Update: February 7-8, 2015

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

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

From Kaitlyn Dunnett: Although it won’t be in stores until October 27, the cover for the next Liss MacCrimmon mystery, The Scottie Barked at Midnight, is already up at Amazon and Goodreads, so I expect it’s okay to share it here. There are actually two Scottish terriers in the story, Dandy and Dondi, two-thirds of an act called Deidre’s Dancing Doggies.


The novel takes place at the taping of a fictional televised competition called Variety LIve! and, of course, there’s a murder. Look for more details designed to tantalize in the coming months.


Love that cover, Kaitlyn!  Lea Wait, here. Saturday February 7 I’ll be at the KIDABALOO Festival at 58 Fore Street in Portland, Maine, talking about and signing copies of my UNCERTAIN GLORY from 11:30-12:30. If you have kids and you’re within an hour of Portland, check this festival out — TV stars from the Disney channel will be there, lots of sports and games to play, food vendors, martial arts,  laser tag … this event has it all for anyone weary of staying home. The event is from 10 am until 3 p.m.  And Wednesday I’ll be visiting Kensington (NH) Elementary School via Skype.


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

    I’m about halfway through Twisted Threads. I wonder how many people outside of New England will wonder what Moxie is…I love it.

  2. I loved Ho-Ho-Homocide so much, I read it twice!

    I just finished Sarah Graves “Winter at the Door”. Fortunately, or unfortunately, I’m down here in Albany, NY in the middle of our two day snow storm. I say fortunately because I couldn’t put it down. I love the home repair books (I have them all, starting with Dead Cat Bounce) and the new series is wonderful. I’m looking forward to the next book. My only regret is that I finished the book and it’s still snowing!
