Weekend Update: September 17-18, 2016


One of our own Maine Crime Writers is bringing home the top prize from New Orleans Bouchercon. Congratulations Chris!


Next week at Maine Crime Writers there will be posts by Jessie Crockett (Monday), Lea Wait (Tuesday), Maureen Milliken (Wednesday), Jen Blood (Thursday), and Bruce Coffin (Friday).

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

Co-authors ROGER GUAY & KATE FLORA present “A Good Man with a Dog: a Retired Game Warden’s 25 Years in the Maine Woods”
Freeport Community Library
Monday, Sep. 19, 6:30 pm
Join us in welcoming Kate Flora and Roger Guay, co-authors of the April 2016 publication A Good Man with a Dog: a Retired Game Warden’s 25 Years in the Maine Woods. This memior chronicles Guay’s career as a Maine game warden and certified K9 handler.

Keeping a watchful eye over the acres of wilderness that span the state, Guay spent years catching poachers, rescuing lost hikers and hunters, and even dealing with grizzlier tasks in the aftermath of violent crime. The book also looks at Guay’s years of work with dogs and the establishment K9 units throughout the game warden service.

From Kaitlyn Dunnett: Just showing off. This is the first time I’ve had an audiobook for any of my Liss MacCrimmon mysteries, and it’s on CD for those who (like me) can’t figure out how to download stuff.


I’ll be bringing copies to the New Gloucester Public Library where Lea Wait, Jen Blood and I will be speaking TODAY (September 17) at 1PM.


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
