Weekend Update: March 7-8, 2015

fallsbooks1Next week at Maine Crime Writers there will be posts by Barb Ross (Monday), Jen Blood (Tuesday), Kate Flora (Wednesday), Susan Vaughan (Thursday), and John Clark (Friday).

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

Lea Wait: Loving that Daylight Savings Time has arrived … even if the snow is still here. I’m making two appearances this week — Tuesday, March 10, I’ll be speaking at the Freeport Community Library (Freeport, Maine) at 6:30 …. an event originally scheduled for January, but which was snowed out. And Wednesday, March 11, I’ll be speaking at the Lincoln Home in Newcastle, Maine, at 3 in the afternoon.  Copies of my books will be available at both events, and both events are open to the public.

bundle2Barb Ross: Kensington has made the bundle containing the first book in my Maine Clambake Mystery series, Clammed Up, the first book in Joanne Fluke’s series, Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder, and the first book in Lee Hollis’ series, Death of a Kitchen Diva, available for $2.99 for the three books. Joanne Fluke is Kensington’s most successful cozy author. Lee Hollis is actually a brother-sister team. He is a TV and movie writer and she is the food columnist for the local paper in Bar Harbor. Their mysteries take place in Maine.

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
