Weekend Update: November 2-3, 2019

Next week at Maine Crime Writers, there will be posts by Kaitlyn Dunnett/Kathy Lynn Emerson (Monday), Kate Flora (Tuesday), John Clark (Thursday) and Darcy Scott (Friday).

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

Lea Wait wrote one last book in the Mainely Needlepoint series and it will be published at the end of November. We’ll be featuring posts about Thread and Buried throughout the month. See the review posted yesterday for details on a drawing to give away an advance reading copy provided by her publisher, Kensington Books.

In case you missed this earlier, here are the winners in our “Where Would You Put The Body” contest.

The “Where Would You Put the Body?” contest has winners! We have prizes for First, Second, and Third place—books of course and other Maine goodies. It was great fun to see where entrants wanted to park Evil Aunt Alice (or whomever.) Here are the three winning entries along with the folks who submitted them. We’ll contact each to arrange prize delivery.

win one

1st place Katherine Page. Gut the engine, keep the flowers going and in most rural areas you’d never have anyone give it a second thought until you died and some poor relative had to deal with the junker.

win two

2nd place Janet Murch. Think about it. If you hid a body in one of these tanks right after everything has been spread and add quick lime, by the time it gets used again, there won’t be much left to discover.

win three

3rd Place Bruce Harris Room 9, York Harbor Inn, York, ME. Gotta love hiding a corpse in a room that everyone forgot.
