In the news department, here’s what’s happening with some of us who blog regularly at Maine Crime Writers:
from Kathy Lynn Emerson/Kaitlyn Dunnett: I mentioned last time that the short story nominees for this year’s Agatha award have launched a blog tour. In addition to a group post here in April (date forthcoming) here is the schedule:
March 6 at Wicked Cozy Authors
March 17 at Writers Who Kill
April 20 at The Stiletto Gang
And the links to read all five stories can be found at the Malice Domestic website. Just click on “Awards” and scroll down to the short story category.
I’m also a guest blogger this week to promote the new mystery novel. I talk about a day in the life of Rosamond Jaffrey, the sleuth in Murder in the Queen’s Wardrobe at Dru’s Book Musings on March 3. Come by and comment and be entered in a drawing for a hardcover copy of the book.
from Lea Wait: This weekend I’ll be pushing the keys to send Thread and Gone, the third in my Mainely Needlework series, to my editor. And Friday, March 6, I’ll be visiting students at the Juniper Place School in Alna, Maine, who’ve read my book Finest Kind.
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: firstname.lastname@example.org
