by Barb, who is finally back home in Portland
Last night, Kensington Publishing and Print: A Bookstore combined to host a Cozy Mystery mini-con in Portland, with support from Thorndike Press, the Maine-based publisher of large print books. Maine Crime Writers Kaitlyn Dunnett, Jessica Ellicott and I were there. A host of Portland-area Maine Crime Writers, including Brenda Buchanan, Bruce Coffin, Dick Cass, and Joe Souza, as well as alum Chris Holm and his wife mystery reviewer Katrina Niidas Holm came out to support us. Gayle Lynds, unable to attend, even sent best wishes and bought some signed books.
The party was at the Rising Tide Brewery. They were very welcoming and accommodating, and the beer was great!
Here’s a glimpse of the action.
Thanks to all who came out! For those who missed it, hope these photos give you a sense of the event.
