fallsbooks1Next week at Maine Crime Writers there will be posts by Kaitlyn Dunnett/Kathy Lynn Emerson (Monday), Jen Blood (Tuesday), Kate Flora (Wednesday), John Clark (Thursday), and Jessie Crockett (Friday).

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

2016 MAINE CRIME WAVE
Join Maine crime writers, publishing professionals, members of law enforcement and the judiciary, and the Attorney General of the State of Maine at the Portland Public Library on Saturday, April 9 for theme-specific craft sessions, manuscript workshops, one-on-one manuscript critiques, and fascinating panels on the law, writing about police procedure, and how debut mystery authors made their journeys.

Book sales, book signings, and networking throughout the day!

And we’re already gearing up for 2016 events, so keep checking here. Also, if you’re looking for a program for your book group, library, school, or other organization, we’re always delighted to work with you to create a fun event. If you’ve got readers, or aspiring writers, we’ve got writers who love to talk about their craft. How about Death and Desserts? Soup and Suspense?

New writer joining us: At the end of February, MCW will be welcoming debut crime author (though not a man new to writing) Richard Cass to the blog group.

And if you missed his blog this week, Bruce Coffin just struck a deal for three police procedurals.

Kate Flora is gearing up for the April release of Roger Guay’s memoir: A Good Man with a Dog: a Retired Game Warden’s 25 Years in the Maine Woods. 

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.

And a reminder: If your library, school, or organization is looking for a speaker, we are often available to talk about the writing process, research, where we get our ideas, and other mysteries of the business. Contact Kate Flora: mailto: kateflora@gmail.com
