Next week at Maine Crime Writers there will be posts by Bruce Coffin (Monday), Vaughn Hardacker (Tuesday), Dorothy Cannell (Wednesday), John Clark (Thursday), and Kate Flora (Friday).
In the news department, here’s what’s happening with some of us who blog regularly at Maine Crime Writers:
Lea Wait: Excited that Dangling By a Thread, the fourth in my Mainely Needlepooint series, will ship early this week! Every town has its eccentrics (maybe especially in Maine) and in Haven Harbor Jesse, who lives alone on an isolated island, is called The Solitary. But Jesse has a reason to be there … and when his world is threatened, he has the Mainely Needlepointers for friends.
And Wednesday evening, October 26, Lea, Kate Flora, and Barbara Ross will be speaking at “Death and Desserts” at the South Berwick Public Library in Maine. Talk, books to hear about and purchase … and desserts. How could an evening be any better! Hope to see you there.
Then, Saturday and Sunday, October 29 and 30, Kathy Lynn Emerson/Kaitlyn Dunnett/Kate Emerson and Lea Wait will be at the REM (Revitalizing the Energy) Craft Fair at Champion’s Fitness Club, 30 Elm Plaza (exit 130 off I-95) in Waterville, Maine, along with dozens of Christmas crafters. What a place to shop for Christmas and support local artisans! Hours: Saturday from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.; Sunday, 10 a.m. until 3 p.m.
Kate Flora: Recently, the wonderful Dale T. Phillips did a long and interesting interview with me on his blog. If you’re curious, you can check it out here, and perhaps learn some of my deep, dark secrets: http://daletphillips.blogspot.com/2016/10/interview-with-kate-flora.html
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
Kate Flora–loved your interview! Thanks for the addition to my writer’s vocabulary: cooker. And for bringing back great reading memories of Mary Stewart, Phillyis Whitney, and Victoria Holt. Can’t believe one person could have so many works in progress as you do. When do you find time to pick blueberries?
