Weekend Update: January 28-29, 2017

Next week at Maine Crime Writers, there will be posts by Dorothy Cannell (Monday) Kaitlyn Dunnett/Kathy Lynn Emerson (Tuesday), Kate Flora (Wednesday), Bruce Coffin (Thursday) and Brenda Buchanan (Friday).

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

Big News From Malice Domestic: Three Maine Crime Writers are among the finalists for the Agatha Award. Nominees are:

Fogged Inn by Barbara Ross for Best Contemporary Novel

Whispers Beyond the Veil by Jessica Estevao (aka Jessie Crockett) for Best Historical Novel

A Good Man with a Dog: A Game Warden’s 25 Years in the Maine Woods by Roger Guay with Kate Clark Flora for Best Nonfiction

Obviously there’s some great writing coming out of the state of Maine. Malice Domestic is a convention in Bethesda, MD for folks who love reading (and writing) traditional mysteries. This year it takes place from April 28-30. For more details go to Malice Domestic

Bruce Robert Coffin will be speaking at the Scarborough Historical Society, 649 Route 1, Scarborough, Maine on February 1st at 7:00 pm.

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
