Weekend Update: August 11-12, 2018

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

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

From Kaitlyn Dunnett, a question: do any of you reading this blog read your e-books on Kobo? I ask because there’s a promotion coming up for Kilt Dead in that format (more details here when it actually begins) and I’m curious. Most of the people I talk to who read e-books regularly seem to choose either Kindle books or iBooks. Any Kobo fans out there? What is it you like about the format? Thanks in advance for any input.

Congratulations to Lea Wait. For Freedom Alone went up on Kindle August 8 and by August 10 it was the #1 new release in Children’s European Historical Fiction. The tale is set in Scotland and a great read for all ages. Here’s the link: https://www.amazon.com/Freedom-Alone-Lea-Wait-ebook/dp/B07GBGV7Z7/ref=sr_1_3?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1534014436&sr=1-3&keywords=For+Freedom+Alone

 

A huge thank you to librarian Heidi Dow of the Guilford Library for hosting a Maine Author Day, a fun event in a beautiful library. She even gave us lunch. Here are so photos from the event:

    I read on Kobo sometimes. someone gave me a Kobo reader a few years ago, and I have their app loaded on my computer, too. There isn’t anything particular i like, or dislike, about it. The reader is small enough to slip into my pocket, which is an advantage when i’m our and about. Their website is a nightmare to navigate and their customer service is non-existent.
