Next week at Maine Crime Writers, there will be posts by Vaughn Hardacker (Monday), Bruce Coffin (Tuesday), Charlene D’Avanzo (Thursday) and John Clark (Friday).
In the news department, here’s what’s happening with some of us who blog regularly at Maine Crime Writers:
August 27 marks the release of the mass-market paperback edition of Kaitlyn Dunnett’s Overkilt,#12 in the Liss MacCrimmon Mystery Series. It’s already available in hardcover and e-book formats. Always interesting to me are the small changes the publisher makes in the cover from one edition to another. The basic scene is the same for this one, but my name and the title are highlighted with a stripe of green that wasn’t there on the hardcover version.
Maureen Milliken and Sandy Neilly will be at the Desinging Women Craft Show from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. The weather is always awesome, and the show is a juried one with lots of great items, Hello Good Pie, the excellent and popular Belgrade bakery will also be selling sweet stuff. Come on and say hi to Maureen and Sandy (Sandy may not be able to make it, full disclosure).
The $2 admission goes to the Sexual Assault Support and Crisis Center in Winthrop, which serves victims of assault in Kennebec and Somerset counties, so it’s for a good cause, too. The show happens rain or shine, but it’s always a beautiful day! Longfellow’s is on Puddledock Road in Manchester, just west of Augusta and easy to find off exit 109 of Interstate 95.
