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:
from Kaitlyn Dunnett: You still have time to enter the contest for the giveaway of advance reading copies of the twelfth Liss MacCrimmon mystery, Overkilt (in stores October 30). If you haven’t already entered, simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line Giveaway. The drawing will be held September 20th. In this one, Moosetookalook’s luxury hotel, The Spruces, owned by Liss’s father-in-law, is targeted by protestors because they claim his special Thanksgiving couples promotion violates family values. The boycott quickly spreads to include Moosetookalook Scottish Emporium and other businesses in town, causing hard feelings all around. Liss tries to make a joke of it, calling the reaction “overkilt”. . . until someone takes things a bit too far and her nearest and dearest suddenly become suspects in a murder investigation.
Bruce Robert Coffin and Kate Flora will be at the South Portland Public Library on Thursday, September 20th at 6:30pm. Also appearing will be retired Portland Police Department Assistant Chief Joseph Loughlin, co-author of two novels with Kate. It promises to be an interesting night of crime and mystery author talk.
