Weekend Update: August 29-30, 2020

Next week at Maine Crime Writers, there will be a group blog on Monday, and posts by Kaitlyn Dunnett/Kathy Lynn Emerson (Tuesday), Vaughn Hardacker (Wednesday) Kate Flora (Thursday), and Brenda Buchanan (Friday).


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

Sandra Neily’s second novel, Deadly Turn came out in early July to strong early reviews.  Her middle-aged narrator (hiding from a failed life in her family’s run-down camp) accompanied by her wayward Lab, are hired to collect dead bats and birds at wind power sites. She stumbles over the body part of an unknown man whose death implicates  both her and her dog. Once again, Patton is offered only outlaw solutions to fight for a disappearing world as she tries to clear her name.

Here’s how Sandra explains her stories: “I am creating a series of murder mysteries about the murder of the natural world … stories that are compelling, intimate field trips into a world at risk of disappearing.”
