Weekend Update: October 10-11, 2020

Next week at Maine Crime Writers there will be posts by Maggie Robinson (Monday), Sandra Neily (Tuesday), Guest Claire Ackroyd (Wednesday), Kaitlyn Dunnett/Kathy Lynn Emerson (Thursday), and Kate Flora (Friday).

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

If you’re missing author events, here’s an event featuring Maine Crime Writers from the Curtis Library:

Here is the link for our final event, Tuesday October 20, Joseph Souza, author of Pray for the Girl; The Neighbor and his latest thriller, The Perfect Daughter.  Feel free to share the link.


Don’t forget our Body contests, details here:

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.

Kate Flora is excited to finally get a cover, and a pub date, October 27th, for the next Thea Kozak mystery, Death Comes Knocking.

Here are the ISBNs:
