Next week at Maine Crime Writers, there will be posts by Katherine Hall Page (Monday), John Clark (Tuesday), Kate Flora (Wednesday), special guest William Andrews (Thursday), and Kaitlyn Dunnett/Kathy Lynn Emerson (Friday).
In the news department, here’s what’s happening with some of us who blog regularly at Maine Crime Writers:
from Kaitlyn Dunnett: X Marks the Scot hits stores on Tuesday, November 28 in both hardcover and ebook formats. This is the eleventh Liss MacCrimmon Mystery, although they don’t have to be read in order. In this one, Liss, who owns a Scottish-themed gift shop in the fictional village of Moosetookalook, Maine buys a painting at an estate auction and discovers what appears to be a treasure map hidden in the backing. Being Liss, how can she not try to find where X is located? Her treasure hunt takes her to Nova Scotia, to the Scottish games at Antigonish, and home again. This time her partner in sleuthing is her now-retired aunt, Margaret MacCrimmon Boyd, so of course Margaret’s two adorable Scotties, Dandy and Dondi, make several appearances, as do Liss’s cats, Lumpkin and Glenora.
Also, from November 26-December 10, the third Liss MacCrimmon mystery, A Wee Christmas Homicide, will be on sale in Nook format for $1.99.
