Weekend Update: August 19-20, 2017

Next week at Maine Crime Writers, there will be posts by Dorothy Cannell (Monday), Joe Souza (Tuesday), Vaughan Hardacker (Wednesday), Jen Blood (Thursday), and Lea Wait (Friday).

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

Barb: On Tuesday, August 22, at 7:00 pm, I’ll be at the Bacon Free Library in Natick, Massachusetts for a Sisters in Crime panel. Hallie Ephron, Hank Phillippi Ryan, Sheila Connolly, and I will construct a mystery, thriller or suspense novel on the fly from audience suggestions. It’s a lot of fun. Would love to see you there.

Lea: (And Jen Blood and Maureen Milliken) will be at the 11th Annual Designing Women  Craft Show (all women venders, to benefit the Sexual Assault Crisis and Support Center in Winthrop) Saturday, August 26, at Longfellow’s Greenhouses, Puddledock Road, in Manchester,Maine. Hours:  9:30 until 4, rain or shine.

Kate: On Sunday, August 27th, I’ll be at the Palermo, Maine Library at 2:00 p.m.

From time to time, we offer books and other prizes to our readers. The winner of the July prize, a copy of The Maine Mulch Murder, goes to C. T. Collier. We’ll be contacting you for an address.

The winner of a copy of Death Warmed Over is Elaine Roberson. Again, we’ll be contacting you, Elaine.

And in case you were busy yesterday seizing the rapidly dwindling days of August, there’s another book offer in the Friday post, Crime Writers in Shorts.



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.
