Weekend Update: June 20-21, 2015

fallsbooks1Next week at Maine Crime Writers there will be posts by Maureen Milliken (Monday), Kate Flora (Tuesday), John Clark (Wednesday), special guest Sarah Wisseman (Thursday) and Vicki Doudera (Friday).

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

From Kaitlyn Dunnett/Kathy Lynn Emerson: I’m off to the Historical Novel Society North American Conference in Denver on Thursday. Imagine it! Everyone who will be there is really into historical fiction. That’s a rare treat. So is the workshop I’ve signed up for, a three hour class in fighting with sword and dagger. Expect to see a post on that subject, hopefully with pictures, when I blog in July.

Kate Flora and Barb Ross joined Brenda Buchanan in Brunswick on Friday for a mystery discussion. Fascinating talk about choosing and shaping characters, why Maine as a location, and the challenges of being alone.

Last Sunday, Kate Flora, Lea Wait, and Dorothy Cannell were guests of the library in Liberty, where the librarian and library volunteers put on a spectacular “Death and Desserts” event. If you’ve never seen one of these, here are some snapshots, including a chalk outline of Dorothy’s grandson, Jack, which seems to have been run over by a car.
