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

On June 13 at Bangor Public Library, the Maine Writers and Publishers Alliance gave out its annual awards for literary excellence. All three finalists in the crime fiction category, won by Barbara Ross for Stowed Away, were Maine Crime Writers: Bruce Robert Coffin (for Beyond the Truth), Barbara Ross, and Lea Wait, writing as Cornelia Kidd (for Death and a Pot of Chowder). Congratulations to all three.
