Next week at Maine Crime Writers there will be posts by Charlene D’Avanzo (Monday), Darcy Scott (Tuesday), Maureen Milliken (Thursday), and Vaughn Hardacker (Friday).
In the news department, here’s what’s happening with some of us who blog regularly at Maine Crime Writers:
from Kathy Lynn Emerson: Last week I showed you the cover for my next adult mystery, The Finder of Lost Things. Today I’m revealing the first of a series of covers to go on reprints of some of my earliest books—mysteries for children ages 8-12. First up is my very first published fiction, The Mystery of Hilliard’s Castle, originally published by Down East Books back in 1985. The new edition doesn’t change the story (it’s set in Maine in 1982) but I did revise a few clunky sentences and commission a new cover. Here’s the book description: Kerry Odell and her younger brother Lyle are not enthusiastic about spending the next six months in rural western Maine. It seems like a pretty dismal place, especially in March, and means entering a new school in mid-year. The house their mother has rented, with its locked tower, has all the makings of a haunted “castle” with mysterious comings and goings, odd noises in the night, and a landlord who seems to have it in for them. Reading level 4.9.
It’s currently available as an e-book—click here for links:https://books2read.com/u/4jWJND
A paperback (print on demand) edition is in the works and should be available in about a month
