Weekend Update: December 5-6, 2015

fallsbooks1Next week at Maine Crime Writers there will be posts by Brenda Buchanan (Monday), Chris Holm (Tuesday), Vaughn Hardacker (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: I was all set to tell you that both Kilt Dead and Scone Cold Dead, the second in the Liss MacCrimmon series, were on sale in December, Kilt Dead everywhere, and Scone Cold Dead only at Amazon. I even had a link to the Scone Cold Dead Kindle page. Then I checked again a couple of days later and, lo and behold, Scone Cold Dead was no longer priced at $1.89 but was back up to its usual $4.61. BUT Scotched, #5 in the series, had dropped to $2.20. What??? It’s Christmas season. Let’s confuse the shoppers! So, dear readers, the best I can do is tell you that Kilt Dead, together with the other Kensington titles by Maine Crime Writers and our sisters at Wicked Cozy Authors (see below) is on sale at all ebook outlets all month long. Any other sales are Kindle specials of some sort and don’t appear to last more than a day or two. On the bright side, if you go to look for Scotched and it has gone back up in price, there may be another of the titles in the series on sale. You can find out by going to my author page at Kindle. Here’s the link: Kindle Author Page



Lea Wait: Saturday, December 5, from 9 until 2,  I’ll be selling and signing my books at the Holiday Fair at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Brunswick, Maine, on 1 Middle Street. Come to meet crafters .. buy holidays greens or books .. and enjoy home-baked goodies at the cafe. Shop local!

    I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy your website and each of your postings. My wife and I have been coming to Maine for a couple of weeks during the last 2-3 summers, and we love it up there. I’m trying to set one of my short stories there, too!! So when I’m down here in Texas, reading your website is like getting a taste of Maine (but without the snow!!!).

    Happy Holidays to you all!!
