In the news department, here’s what’s happening with some of us who blog regularly at Maine Crime Writers:
Barb: Hi. There’s another great review of Best New England Crime Stories: Red Dawn up on George Smith’s Maine blog, with shout-outs to several Maine Crime Writers, including Kate Flora, Dorothy Cannell and Bruce Coffin. http://www.georgesmithmaine.com/articles/book-reviews/march/2016/red-dawn-delivers-great-new-england-crime-stories.
Meanwhile, after a long winter, who will I get to see at the Maine Crime Wave?
Kathy: Speaking of Maine Crime Wave. There is also “Two Minutes in the Slammer” the night before. Want to see how people react to a short reading from your work-in-progress? Here’s your chance. There are still slots open on the schedule. I did this last year and not only was it great fun, it gave me the opportunity to get a glimpse of what other folks were writing. At least two of those talented people have signed book contracts since then.
