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.
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: firstname.lastname@example.org
