Next week at Maine Crime Writers, there will be posts by Brenda Buchanan (Monday), Dick Cass (Tuesday), Lea Wait (Wednesday), Barb Ross (Thursday), and Vaughn Hardacker (Friday).
In the news department, here’s what’s happening with some of us who blog regularly at Maine Crime Writers:
from Kaitlyn Dunnett: reviews are starting to come in for X Marks the Scot (in stores November 28). Kirkus Review says “Plenty of small-town atmosphere and deliciously dubious suspects lift this entry above the series average.” Publisher’s Weekly calls it “well-paced” and praises “the surprising denouement.” Suspense Magazine, where this is the first time a Liss MacCrimmon novel has been reviewed, says “you never know what’s coming next in this new Liss MacCrimmon Scottish Mystery. Best advice? Sit back and enjoy the ride.” This is #11 in the series. I’m just finishing up #12, which is due on my editor’s desk on December first.
Join Bruce Robert Coffin, Kate Flora, and M. K. Graff at Longfellow Books in Portland on Wednesday night, November 8 from 7 pm to 9 pm. Each of the mystery authors will be signing copies of their latest books and taking part in an author panel moderated by Brendan Rielly (author of An Unbeaten Man, winner of the 2016 Maine Literary Award for Crime Fiction).
