Weekend Update: May 30-31, 2015


Next week at Maine Crime Writers there will be posts by special guest Mary Lawrence (Monday), Kate Flora (Tuesday), Brenda Buchanan (Wednesday), Al Lamanda (Thursday) and Susan Vaughan (Friday).

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

MusseledOutAudiblefrom Barb Ross: For all you audiophiles (audiobookphiles?), I’m pleased to announce that Musseled Out, the third Maine Clambake Mystery, will be released as an audiobook by Audible this Tuesday, June 2nd. You can find it here.


If you are reading this on Saturday, why not hop on over the Hartland Library today from 1-3 to celebrate John Clark‘s retirement and meet the new Hartland Librarian?

From John Clark: Great and fun interview I did this week  http://www.bookologymagazine.com/middle-kingdom/middle-kingdom-hartland-maine/

from Kate Flora: Excited, honored, and very grateful to have received the 2015 Maine Literary Award for Crime Fiction for my fourth Joe Burgess police procedural, And Grant You Peace. Thanks, Brenda Buchanan, for the photograph. And yes, winners get big blue balloons.









Finally, if you are a crime writer, aspiring crime writer, or fan of crime writing, Saturday is the day registration opens for The New England Crime Bake, our annual mystery conference featuring New England authors. The Bake is held in Dedham, Massachusetts the weekend of November 6, 7 & 8, and this year’s guest of honor is Elizabeth George. Register here: http://crimebake.org

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.

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
