Next week at Maine Crime Writers there will be posts by Brenda Buchanan (Monday), John Clark (Tuesday), Kate Flora (Wednesday), Kathy Lynn Emerson/Kaitlyn Dunnett (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:
From Kaitlyn Dunnett: So, I was minding my own business, checking Facebook, and what should pop up but Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show holding up my mystery novel, Ho-Ho-Homicide, the eighth entry in the Liss MacCrimmon series. This is great! Free publicity! It would have been even better if he wasn’t doing it because he was sharing the next segment of his “Do Not Read” list. You can see the video at https://www.facebook.com/Kaitlyn-Dunnett-1490240871270635/timeline/ by scrolling down to the link. I’ll be blogging this coming Thursday about what it was like to suddenly find my book in the spotlight.
Saturday, August 27 — Maureen Milliken, Jen Blood and Lea Wait will be joining an impressive group of women crafters and several authors of children’s books at the Designing Women show at Longfellows Greenhouses, 81 Puddleduck Road, in Manchester Maine. The show is from 9:30 until 4:00, and the show supports the Sexual Assault Crisis and Support Center in Winthrop, Maine. Great place to buy crafts and books for yourself- or for Christmas gifts!
Also on Saturday, August 27th, Kate Flora and Roger Guay will be signing copies of A Good Man with a Dog at Sherman’s in Camden from 1-3. And on Thursday, September 1st, we will be at Maine Coast Book Shop in Damariscotta at 11:00.
In case you missed it, Kate Flora, Lea Wait, and Dorothy Cannell were at the Carmel Library last week for a Death and Desserts event. We are still recovering from the amazing chocolate overload, but Maine Crime Writers are very happy to be invited to any library, whether they serve chocolate or not, so let us hear from you!!
And remember, we’re closing in on the end of our August give-away (which actually extends through Labor Day–maybe we should call it the “End of Summer” give-away?) and we know that you really want to own one of those fabulous Nancy Drew tote bags full of books and Maine goodies. Just remember to leave a comment on any one of our blogs, and you’ll be eligible.
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
