Weekend Update: January 23-24, 2021

Next week at Maine Crime Writers there will be posts by Maureen Milliken (Monday), Dick Cass (Tuesday), Darcy Scott (Thursday) and Sandra Neily (Friday).

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

A reminder to our writer friends that submissions for the Maine Literary Awards close on Feb. 1st. Get the details here: https://www.mainewriters.org/mla-submission-guidelines

Kate Flora is looking for a few volunteers to be beta readers for a new mystery, Not What You Think. To volunteer, contact her at: writingaboutcrime@gmail.com

Dick Cass: As fans of my Elder Darrow mystery series know, I designate a charity each year to receive a contribution per sale. This year’s charity is themayflyproject.com, which uses fly fishing to mentor and support foster kids. I look forward to helping them thrive.

Sandra Neily: The chance to win a half day birding tour with Downeast Nature Tours ends on Sunday the 24th at midnight (est).  Owner and superb guide Michael Good fact checked all the bird and bat material for my mystery Deadly Turn.  He’s so amazing. Just email me with a subject line of “Birding Please.” sdougn@gmail.com

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
