Weekend Update: October 24-25, 2015

fallsbooks1Next week at Maine Crime Writers there will be posts by Jessie Crockett (Monday), Maureen Milliken (Tuesday), and Bruce Coffin (Wednesday), with a guest post on Thursday and a special Halloween guest post on 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: The Scottie Barked at Midnight will be in stores and available as an ebook on Tuesday, October 27 and I’ll be guest blogging at Jungle Red and Dru’s Book Musings next week.

On Saturday, October 31 from 10-5 and Sunday, November 1 from 10-3, Lea Wait and I will have a booth at the REM Craft Fair being held at 30 Elm Plaza (Champion’s Fitness Center) in Waterville, Maine. There will be about sixty dealers but we’ll be the only writers. Sounds lke a perfect place to start your Christmas shopping!

From Barb Ross: Finally, post knee replacement, I am sprung, at least for a little bit. On Saturday I’ll be signing and selling books at the Sisters in Crime New England Booth (#32) at the Boston Book Festival. On Monday, October 26, from 12:30 to 2:30, I’ll be signing and giving away books in the Sisters in Crime New England booth at the New England Library Association Annual Conference in Manchester, NH.

From Lea Wait: Looking forward to spending next weekend with Kathy in Waterville! And just a note that my Uncertain Glory has just been released in paperback … in time for classroom copies and Christmas gifts!  (Uncertain Glory is my book about a boy who published the town’s newspaper in Wiscasset, Maine in the mid-19th century, and is set during the first two weeks of the Civil War, April, 1861. Great for anyone who loves Maine … or is fascinated by the Civil War.

And more from Kaitlyn Dunnett: I’ve just received word that The Scottie Barked at Midnight is a Woman’s World Book Club pick. It’s featured in the December 7th issue, in stores in early November.
