Next week at Maine Crime Writers, there will be posts by Vaughn Hardacker (Monday), John Clark (Tuesday) Barb Ross (Wednesday) Kaitlyn Dunnett/Kathy Lynn Emerson (Thursday), and Susan Vaughan (Friday).
In the news department, here’s what’s happening with some of us who blog regularly at Maine Crime Writers:
More “deal” news from Kaitlyn Dunnett: From May 8-13, as a special Mother’s Day offer, the most recent Liss MacCrimmon mystery, Overkilt, will be on sale in ebook format at Kobo for just $2.99. This seems appropriate since Liss’s mother plays a major role in the story. Some readers have suggested Vi MacCrimmon would make a good victim, but having her as Liss’s reluctantly accepted sleuthing partner is much more fun!
Don’t forget Maine Crime Wave! It takes place in Portland, Maine on May 31-June 1 and the deadline to register is May 20. All the information you need is here: http://mainewriters.org/maine-crime-wave/
Who will be there? Panelists include current Maine Crime Writers Brenda Buchanan, Richard Cass, Bruce Robert Coffin, Kaitlyn Dunnett, Kate Flora, Vaughn C. Hardacker, Barbara Ross, and Lea Wait and MCW alums Gerry Boyle, Jessie Crockett (as Jessie Ellicott), James Hayman, Chris Holm, and Julia Spencer-Fleming, plus frequent MCW guest Katherine Hall Page. Also presenting are Maine writers Tess Gerritsen and Gayle Lynds, bestselling author Lisa Gardner, and superstar agent Meg Ruley.
