Weekend Update: September 12-13, 2020

Next week at Maine Crime Writers there will be posts by Kaitlyn Dunnett/Kathy Lynn Emerson (Monday), Kate Flora (Tuesday), Susan Vaughan (Thursday), and William Andrews (Friday).

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

It’s Maine Crime Writers “Where Would You Put the Body?” contest – late summer/early fall edition. How do you enter? Send a photograph of your chosen spot to: WritingAboutCrime@gmail.com with “Where Would You Put the Body?” in the subject line. There will be prizes for First, Second, and Third place–books of course and other Maine goodies. You may enter no more than three photographs, each one entered separately. They must be of Maine places and you must identify the place in your submission. Photos must be the submitter’s original work. Contest will run through the middle of October.

Here’s a nice review of Dick Cass’s upcoming book: https://www.netgalley.com/book/200913/review/714740?fbclid=IwAR3lVRpCorKMEoKkIPnrc6LhyO3xdv6j-OdZbBCB31ijpdCdJtHZA0VP38Y


What do you wonder about the writing process when you are reading a mystery? Is it how characters are created? Is it how a writer plots the story? Is it how writers do their research? Is it what the writer’s background is or what lead them to become a writer? Here at MCW, we welcome your questions, comments, and suggestions.

An invitation to readers of this blog: Do you have news relating to Maine, Crime, or Writing? We’d love to hear from you. Just comment below to share.

And a reminder: If your library, school, or organization is looking for a speaker, we are often available to talk about the writing process, research, where we get our ideas, and other mysteries of the business. We also do programs on Zoom. Contact Kate Flora
