fallsbooks1Next week at Maine Crime Writers there will be posts by Lea Wait (Tuesday), Barb Ross (Wednesday), John Clark (Thursday) and Maureen Milliken (Friday),with a special guest post from Russ Warnberg on Monday.

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: Next weekend I will be one of the Wilton authors participating in this year’s Wilton Blueberry Festival. The theme is “Reading and Writing” and I’ll be reading from my books, answering questions about writing, and signing books at the Wilton Free Public Library from 2-3 PM on Friday, August 7. I will have both current and backlist titles available for purchase.

And on Sunday, August 2, Lea Wait, Maureen Milliken and Vaughn Hardacker will be at the Maine Crime Writers booth at Belgrade’s juried Lakeside Artisan Show, 1 Center Drive, in Belgrade, from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. Their books will be available for purchase and signing — of course! Crafts and books – what could be more fun! (Christmas gifts, anyone?)

from Barb Ross: On Monday, August 3, at 7:00 pm I’ll be at the Witherle Memorial Library in Castine, Maine, speaking as a part of their Maine Writers Series.

And in case you’ve resisted us until now, in August, Vampires, Bones and Treacle Scones, (Liss MacCrimmon Mystery Book 7) by Kaitlyn Dunnett, Twisted Threads, (Mainely Needlepoint Mystery Book 1) by Lea Wait, and Clammed Up, (Maine Clambake Mystery Book 1) by Barbara Ross will be on sale for $1.99 in various ebook formats all month.
