Next week at Maine Crime Writers, there will be posts by Jessie Crockett (Monday) Vaughn Hardacker (Tuesday), Maureen Milliken (Wednesday), and John Clark (Thursday), and on Friday we will have a group post to update our Works in Progress.
In the news department, here’s what’s happening with some of us who blog regularly at Maine Crime Writers:
From Kaitlyn Dunnett/Kathy Lynn Emerson: For anyone on Goodreads, I’m giving away five signed copies of the hardcover edition of Murder in a Cornish Alehouse (U.S. publication date April 1). Follow the link below to enter the drawing, which ends on Monday. This is the third book in the Mistress Jaffrey series and takes Rosamond and Rob to Cornwall, Lundy Island, and Ireland in 1584. There are pirates, smugglers, spies, a treason plot (real but all-but-forgotten by history, my favorite kind) and, of course, murder.
The Maine Crime Wave this year will honor Tess Gerritsen with its inaugural CrimeMaster Award. Fellow New York Times-bestselling author Gayle Lynds will introduce Gerritsen at the ceremony Friday, April 21 at 5:30 p.m. at USM’s Glickman Library in Portland. On Saturday morning, Tess will be joined by her renowned New York literary agent Meg Ruley of the Jane Rotrosen Agency for a discussion about the process of developing from debut author to New York Times bestseller. If you’ve been on the fence about the Maine Crime Wave, the time to jump in is now. Click on this link for more information.
