Weekend Update: February 27-28, 2021

Next week at Maine Crime Writers there will be posts by Kaitlyn Dunnett/Kathy Lynn Emerson (Monday), Kate Flora (Tuesday), Brenda Buchanan (Thursday) and Maggie Robinson (Friday).

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

Kaitlyn Dunnett: The large print edition of the third “Deadly Edits” mystery, A Fatal Fiction, featuring retired school teacher turned free lance editor Mikki Lincoln, is now available from Thorndike Press. The cover is a little different from the regular hardcover, which is also available as an e-book. There will not be a paperback reprint, so if the prices on the hardcovers are too steep for your budget, please consider asking your library to buy a copy or borrow one through inter-library loan. The next entry in the series, Murder, She Edited, will be published as a hardcover and in e-book format at the end of July.

Books from Maureen Milliken and Vaughn Hardacker, as well as a bunch of other writers from around New England, are some of what’s available at the Harrisville Children’s Center annual online auction, which is ongoing until March 21. The auction raises money for the center in western New Hampshire, which provides support services and daycare for children, and has everything from baked goods to stays in New England inns — 464 items, including nearly 100 books. Worth checking out. Visit hccauction.org to check it out.
