Weekend Update: August 8-9, 2015

fallsbooks1Next week at Maine Crime Writers there will be posts by Kate Flora (Monday), Kaitlyn Dunnett/Kathy Lynn Emerson (Tuesday), Brenda Buchanan (Wednesday), Jen Blood (Thursday) and Jayne Hitchcock (Friday).

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

from Kathy Lynn Emerson: The October issue of Alfred Hitchcock’s Mystery Magazine goes on sale on Tuesday, August 11. Why is this news? Because it includes the second “Old Mother Malyn” short story, “The Cunning Woman,” set in Elizabethan England. The first of Malyn’s adventures, related by her granddaughter and apprentice, Joan, was “The Blessing Witch,” a finalist for last year’s Agatha Award for best mystery short story. My fingers are crossed that readers like this one as well.

from Barb Ross: Barbara Ross’s multi-state, I-forgot-to-do-a-tour-when-Musseled-Out-came-out Book Tour continues.

  • Tuesday, August 11, at 7:00 pm I’ll be appearing with Edith Maxwell and Liz Mugavero at Porter Square Books in Cambridge, MA
  • Thursday, August 13, at 7:00 pm, I’ll be at the Vose Library , in Union, ME.

That’s the end of the tour until after my knee surgery in September.

In other news, I received the happy news that Boiled Over, the second Maine Clambake Mystery, is being reprinted. Thank you Maine booksellers (three of whom discovered it was out of stock and let me and Kensington know).


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.

    Hi Crimewriters,
    I would like you to put out a mention for Cynthia Thayer’s six week workshop in Ellsworth (9/19 -10/?) It will cover the whole writing spectrum of short story and novel. She had planned to conduct it last spring but fell severely ill. I feel it would be a morale boost to have a full twelve person attendence to fulfill a complete recovery. Thanks!
