Weekend Update: July 2-3, 2016


Next week at Maine Crime Writers there will be posts by Kaitlyn Dunnett/Kathy Lynn Emerson (Monday), Lea Wait (Tuesday), Bruce Coffin (Wednesday), Maureen Milliken (Thursday), and Barb Ross (Friday).

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

from Kaitlyn Dunnett: The ebook of The Scottie Barked at Midnight is on sale for $2.99 from Kindle and iBooks (and probably others). Since the paperback won’t be out until the fall, this is a real bargain compared to the cost of the hardcover.

WINNERS: The winners of the drawing for Advance Reading Copies of Kilt at the Highland Games are David Plimpton and Marilyn Lugner. Congrats to you both.

On Monday, July 4th, Maureen Milliken, Kate Flora, and Vaughn Hardacker will be sharing a table at the Belgrade Lakes Fourth of July extravaganza, 10 a.m.-2 p.m., 78 Main St. (right next to the gyro stand!), in Belgrade Lakes village. Be sure to visit us at the Meet the Maine Crime Writers tent!

From Barbara Ross: Next Saturday, July 9th from 9:00 to 1:00 come see Barbara Ross, Lea Wait, Kate Flora, Jessie Crockett Estevao, Maureen Milliken, Brenda Buchanan, Bruce Coffin, Paul Doiron, and a host of other New England mystery authors, as well as children’s authors and authors of every kind, at Books in Boothbay at the Railway Village in Boothbay.


And also part of Books in Boothbay, our own Jen Blood has teamed up with Sisters in Crime to stage a murder scene. You can read about it on Jen’s June 15th post: http://mainecrimewriters.com/jens-posts/murder-at-the-old-railway-chapel

Good news about Maine Crime Writers alum, Sarah Graves: Sarah’s DEATH BY CHOCOLATE CHERRY CHEESECAKE is the start of a “Death by Chocolate” series to be published by Kensington, but in it she returns to Eastport, Maine, picking up where she left off with A BAT IN A BELFRY and writing about the same characters as in her earlier series. Now the emphasis isn’t on home repair, but rather on a new venture, a waterfront chocolate shop, The Chocolate Moose, and the mystery of who killed the local health inspector.

Finally, thanks to the graphics skills of Barbara Ross, Maine Crime Writers have (or is that has?) a gorgeous new poster for our events. Which we unveil here for the very first time:
