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.
