Weekend Update: June 16-17, 2018

Next week at Maine Crime Writers, there will posts by Maureen Milliken (Monday) Kaitlyn Dunnett/Kathy Lynn Emerson (Tuesday), Joe Souza (Wednesday), Vaughn Hardacker (Thursday), and Kate Flora (Friday).

In the news department, here’s what’s happening with some of us who blog regularly at Maine Crime Writers:

Jessie Crockett will be leaving the blog next month, though we still hope she’ll return to share news of future books.

William Andrews will be joining us.

A reminder about our contest:

This one should be a lot of fun, and we hope to see entries from many of you.IMG_1393 The subject: Where Would You Put the Body?

The contest: Send us a photograph of the place you’d put a body, along with a description of why you chose that spot.

Where do you send it? To writingaboutcrime@gmail.com

What will you win? This nifty Poe tote bag and a bunch of books and other goodies.

What’s the deadline? Thursday, June 28th. Grab your camera and send us those pics.

This week at the Maine Literary Awards, Dick Cass won the award for Crime Fiction. He was joined by an entire MCW short list including Kate Flora, Sandra Neily, and Vaughn Hardacker, along with other MCW writers who came to cheer them on. (Missing from these photos is Brenda Buchanan, who arrived just after the group photo was taken.)
