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 running another giveaway at Goodreads, starting on Sept. 10 and running through the 25th. This one is for an advance reading copy of my December book. X MARKS THE SCOT. Liss finds a “treasure map” in back of a painting she buys at auction and can’t resist following up on the clues. Naturally, this leads her into trouble, and another murder to solve. The story takes place primarily in Moosetookalook, but there’s a side trip to Canada that includes a visit to the Gaelic College and to the Highland games in Antigonish.

This Sunday, from 2-6 p.m., Maine Crime Writers Vaughn Hardacker, Maureen Milliken, John Clark and Kate Flora will be at the BikeMaine event at Manson Park in Pittsfield. It looks like it will be a fun event, so if you’re planning to be there, stop by and say hello. http://ride.bikemaine.org/
From Bruce Robert Coffin: Join Bruce at Mast Landing Brewery in Westbrook, Maine on Wednesday evening from 4 – 9 as he officially kicks off the launch of his latest novel Beneath the Depths. Longfellow Books will be on hand selling copies of both Detective Byron Mystery novels. Members of the Maine Public Safety Pipe and Drum Corps will provide some great music and of course Mast Landing will be pouring their awesome selection of beer. A reminder that ten percent of book and beers sales will be donated to Westbrook’s My Place Teen Center.
