Weekend Update: November 5-6, 2016

fallsbooks1Next week at Maine Crime Writers, there will be posts by Lea Wait (Monday) Susan Vaughan (Tuesday), Brendan Rielly (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:

from Kaitlyn Dunnett: As Kathy Lynn Emerson, I have a short story, “Lady Appleton and the Creature of the Night.” in the December Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine, which will be in stores November 11. This is something of a departure for me. It’s historical, and as accurate as I could make it in all respects . . . except that there’s this supernatural creature in the woods near Leigh Abbey. I’ve played with this idea for a long time and I think I finally managed the right blend of reality and fantasy. I’ll be curious to see what readers think.

Bruce Robert Coffin: will be reading from his novel, Among the Shadows, at Books in the ‘Brook, Saturday, November 5th from 4 – 5 PM. Also appearing is award winning novelist Shonna Milliken Humphrey. The event will be held at Continuum for Creativity, 863 Main Street, Westbrook. Copies of both author’s books will be available for purchase.

Lea Wait will be speaking with the “Memoir Café” at Rockland Senior College on Wednesday, November 9. The class as been using Lea’s Living and Writing on the Coast of Maine as a text.

Lea Wait and Barbara Ross will be speaking and signing at Sherman’s Maine Coast Bookshop and Cafe in Damariscotta, Maine on Saturday from 1:00 to 3:00.

Maine crime and mystery writers read from their work at Bull Feeney’s in Portland, Sunday, 3:00 to 5:00.



And many of us will be heading to Dedham, Massachusetts, Friday the 11th through Sunday the 13th to speak at and participate in the New England Crime Bake, a conference run jointly by Sisters in Crime of New England and Mystery Writers of America – New England branch. Barbara Ross, Kate Flora, Lea Wait, Jen Blood, Bruce Coffin, Jim Hayman, Maureen Milliken, … and many other authors and fans. Should be a great weekend!
