In the news department, here’s what’s happening with some of us who blog regularly at Maine Crime Writers:
from Kaitlyn Dunnett: I’m doing another Goodreads giveaway, this time for ten copies of the fourth book in the Liss MacCrimmon series, The Corpse Wore Tartan. You can enter by clicking here: https://www.goodreads.com/giveaway/show/242038-the-corpse-wore-tartan and signing up for the drawing. The giveaway runs from July 5 until July 19. The Corpse Wore Tartan strands my regular cast of characters and the members of the Scottish Heritage Appreciation Society at a luxury hotel during a blizzard. And then, of course, there’s a murder . . .
Today, Saturday, July 8, you’ll find Barbara Ross, Lea Wait, Dorothy Cannell, Kate Flora, Paul Doiron, Richard Cass, Bruce Coffin, Jen Blood, Jim Hayman, and many other authors of fiction, nonfiction and books for children, at Books in Boothbay, a wonderful summer book festival at the Boothbay Railway Museum on route 27 in Boothbay, Maine, from 9a.m. until 1 p.m.
Monday, July 10, Kate Flora will be speaking at the Witherle Library in Castine at 7:00 p.m.
Tuesday, July 11, Lea Wait will be speaking with children attending the Young Authors Camp at the University in Maine at Orono sponsored by the Maine Writing Project, and leading a teachers’ workshop about exciting their students about writing.
