Weekend Update: September 22-23, 2018

Next week at Maine Crime Writers, there will posts by Jen Blood (Monday), Barb Ross (Tuesday), Kate Flora (Wednesday), Susan Vaughan (Thursday), and Dorothy Cannell (Friday).

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

from Kaitlyn Dunnett: The winners of ARCs of Overkilt, the 12th Liss MacCrimmon mystery are Elizabeth Ann from TX, Candace from TN, Lily from MI, Karlene from GA, Linda from TX, Susan from CO, Nicole from NY, Cara from KY and one more who hasn’t yet responded to my email. If you entered and your name is Amy A. please check your email, including your spam filter. If I don’t hear from you by Monday, I’ll have to draw another name. Thanks to all who entered. Look for more giveaways to be announced here and on Facebook in the future. For those wondering, I no longer use Goodreads for giveaways because Goodreads (and their parent company, Amazon) now charges a hefty fee for listings that used to be free.

Lea Wait: Lea is excited to be making her first school visit of the 2018-2019 school year at the Warsaw Middle School in Pittsfield, Maine, on Thursday, September 27. What does a school visit entail? They’re all different, but at this one she’ll speak to all 325 fifth through seventh grade students at  a school assembly, and then talk with four separate  groups of sixth and seventh graders who’ve read her FINEST KIND, and finally, meet with seventh grade teachers to discuss incorporating writing and history into their classrooms.

As the month is coming to an end, we remind you that our September prizes are a signed first edition of Richard Russo’s Empire Falls and the audio CD of a Louise Penny book. All you have to do to be eligible to win is post a comment on one of our blogs.
