Weekend Update: October 31-November 1, 2015

fallsbooks1Next week at Maine Crime Writers there will be posts by Lea Wait (Monday), Barb Ross (Tuesday), John Clark (Wednesday), Kate Flora (Thursday) and Kaitlyn Dunnett/Kathy Lynn Emerson (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 next Kathy Emerson, Murder in the Merchant’s Hall, will be out December 1 but if you’d like a chance to win an early copy, I’m doing a giveaway at Goodreads until November 9. Here’s the link: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/26265846-murder-in-the-merchant-s-hall

Meanwhile, this very weekend, (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. Great place to get a head start on your Christmas shopping!

Lea Wait: My UNCERTAIN GLORY has just been published in paperback, in case anyone has been awaiting that day! And I just found out that my FINEST KIND will also be out in paperback about November 13.  Just in time for holiday giving! (Those are both historical novels set in 19th century Maine.)

Brenda Buchanan has been out and about, talking about Cover Story, the second book in her Joe Gale Mystery Series. Last weekend she was over at the Local Buzz in Cape Elizabeth and at Walker Memorial Library in Westbrook. Next Thursday, November 5th, she will be on Peaks Island, reading and visiting at the library from 6 – 7 p.m.
