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 Brenda Buchanan (Friday).
In the news department, here’s what’s happening with some of us who blog regularly at Maine Crime Writers:
It’s book festival season in Maine! This weekend many of us will be at Books in Boothbay and next Saturday, July 21, is the Beyond the Sea Book Festival in Lincolnville Beach, Maine, when Dorothy Cannell, Dick Cass, Kaitlyn Dunnett/Kathy Lynn Emerson, Barb Ross, and Lea Wait/Cornelia Kidd will be signing books and chatting with readers, as will many other Maine writers. For more details, click here.
If you can’t make it to Lincolnville Beach July 21, try the Belgrade Lakes Region, where Maureen Milliken will join other local authors in the Day’s Store 60th Birthday Party
The day, which celebrates 60 years of the current owners’ family owning the store, also includes Gifford’s Ice Cream, a dunk take, cool things to buy, food (of course!), music and much more. Authors, including Friend of Maine Crime Writers Kate Cone, with her guide to craft breweries, will be there from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and the events continue until 9 p.m. The store is on beautiful Long Pond in Belgrades Lakes, and if you’ve never been there and are looking for an idyllic Maine summer destination, give it try.

Hi, this is Chuck, a loyal but sporadic reader from Texas! I love all your posts, and especially this time of year when Maine is so much cooler than we are! And in fact, to remedy the heat, we are headed to Maine this week for 8 or 9 days, and we’ll be staying not far from Lincolnville … so we’ll hope to see some of you at the Book Festival on the 21st!
