Next week at Maine Crime Writers, there will be posts by John Clark (Monday), Brenda Buchanan (Tuesday) , Jessie Crockett (Wednesday), Kaitlyn Dunnett/Kathy Lynn Emerson (Thursday), and Maureen Milliken (Friday).
In the news department, here’s what’s happening with some of us who blog regularly at Maine Crime Writers:
from Kaitlyn Dunnett/Kathy Lynn Emerson: I’ve finally put up a new “tour” schedule for upcoming events. You can find it at http://www.kaitlyndunnett.com/tour.htm First up is an event only a month away, the Kensington Cozy Author-Palooza in Portland, ME on April 10. Co-sponsored by my publisher, Kensington, and Print: A Bookstore, it features twelve cozy authors including four of the Maine Crime Writers: Jessie Crockett (as Jessica Ellicott), Barb Ross, Lea Wait, and me.
from Barb Ross: Speaking of Kensington, they’ve partnered with B&N on a Buy 3 Get 1 Free sale, March 6 to April 8. The sale includes titles by Lea Wait, me, and 28 other fabulous authors. Since B&Ns are a little thin on the ground in Maine, I will tell you that though the graphic below says the sale is in store only, barnesandnoble.com begs to differ. Here’s a link to the online sale. https://www2.barnesandnoble.com/b/select-mystery-novels-buy-3-get-the-4th-free/_/N-2q0o
from Bruce Robert Coffin: Join me this coming Wednesday, March 14th, from 7 – 8:30 pm, at Porter Memorial Library in Machias, where I’ll be discussing my latest novel, Beneath the Depths. For more information contact the library at 207-255-3933.
New MCW blogger: Brendan Rielly posted his farewell post on Tuesday, and today we’re pleased to announce Sandra Neily will be taking his slot. Sandra is an outdoorswoman who has lived in Maine her entire life. She’s published two books in her Patton Conover series, Deadly Trespass and Deadly Turn, both of which take readers deep into the woods and waters of our beautiful state, where natural and human-made intrigue abounds. Watch for her posts starting in April.
