Weekend Update: April 22-23, 2017

Next week at Maine Crime Writers, there will be posts by special guest Joe Souza (Monday), Jen Blood (Tuesday), Jessie Crockett (Wednesday), Barb Ross (Thursday), and Maureen Milliken (Friday).

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

On Thursday night, three Maine Crime Writers were at the McArthur Library in Biddeford, helping to celebrate Sisters in Crime’s 30th Anniversary. Lea Wait, Maureen Milliken, and Kate Flora spoke about process, and our series, and other mysteries of the genre to a large audience of mystery fans. Then everyone got to enjoy the most amazing cupcakes.

On Saturday, many of the Maine Crime Writers will be at Maine Crime Wave, an all-day mystery event in Portland.

Next weekend, MCW will be well represented at Malice Domestic in Bethesda, MD, where three of the Maine Crime Writers regulars (Jessie Crockett, Kate Flora, and Barb Ross) are among the finalists for the Agatha award in three separate categories.

On Wednesday the 26th at 6:30, Kate Flora will be at the Raymond Village Library to talk about her latest Joe Burgess mystery, Led Astray, and the intersection of fiction writing and the world of nonfiction. She hopes some of you will be there to join the discussion.

And, having long neglected you, we are again offering a bag of books to one of the clever readers who follows our blog. Maybe it will be you? How will we know? Because you’ve left us a comment.
