Weekend Update: February 27-28, 2016

fallsbooks1Next week at Maine Crime Writers there will be a special Leap Day post on Monday and posts by Lea Wait (Tuesday), Barb Ross (Wednesday), Bruce Coffin (Thursday), and Maureen Milliken (Friday).

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

Kate Flora: Gosh, it looks like not much is happening at Maine Crime Writers this coming week. Does this mean we’re all at our desks, bent over our works in progress? Maybe next week we’ll give you a sneak preview of some of those works. The way MCW writers are turning out books, soon we will have filled a bookcase. Oh…silly comment, single-handedly Kathy Lynn Emerson/Kate Emerson/Kaitlyn Dunnett has already done that!

Barbara Ross celebrated the publication of her newest Maine Clambake mystery, Fogged In, which is debuting to rave reviews.

Dick Cass will be along on Monday to tell you about his debut book, Solo Act.

And if you like fun links, in yesterday’s post, Jessie Crockett shared a link to a social security name website, where you can look up names from every era and see how common they were. But you’ll have to skip over to Jessie’s post for that.

Got a cool website you’d like to share with us? We always like links to things Maine, writing, food, and just plain fun.

And just to prove how much crime (writing!) can be, here are some fun pics from Death and Desserts events:

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
