Weekend Update: October 17-18, 2015

fallsbooks1Next week at Maine Crime Writers there will be posts by Kate Flora (Monday), Kathy Lynn Emerson/Kaitlyn Dunnett (Tuesday), Vaughn Hardacker (Wednesday), Dorothy Cannell (Thursday) and Jen Blood (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/Kaitlyn Dunnett: The three winners of advance reading copies of The Scottie Barked at Midnight (in stores in hardcover on October 27) are Lil Guckstern, Monica, and Karen Whalen. Congrats to all and a big thank you to everyone who shared dog and cat stories in their comments.

From Kate Flora: I was browsing and discovered that Death Dealer, my Agatha and Anthony-nominated true crime, is on sale at Amazon at an amazing price. (less than $4.00!) Who knows how long this will last, but if you’re looking for a gift for a true crime lover or a dog lover, you should grab this deal: http://www.amazon.com/Death-Dealer-Cadaver-Brought-Justice/dp/0882824767/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1444942864&sr=8-1&keywords=Death+Dealer+Kate+Flora

Is anyone out there planning to do NaNoWriMo? If so, let us know so we can all cheer you on.

And as you know, we love to do an annual Halloween feature, so stay tuned. This year, John Clark is compiling it, and collecting stories from Maine librarians. It’s bound to be fascinating!

Here’s a composite photo of Kate with her fellow Beat, Slay, Love authors. A formidable crew:
