Weekend Update: August 7-8, 2021

Next week at Maine Crime Writers there will be posts by Brenda Buchanan (Monday), Maggie Robinson (Tuesday), Joe Souza (Thursday), and on Friday we’ll have a repost from one of our alums. Some Wednesdays from now on will be “Win a Book Wednesday” with giveaways, drawings, and announcements of winners. Be sure to stop by at mid-week to see what’s new.

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

winners of an audiobook download of Kaitlyn Dunnett’s MURDER, SHE EDITED: J. Bettany2013, Shelley Burbank, Marilyn Lunger, Ronna DeLoe, and Mary Lou Hofmann. I’ve sent emails with the download codes to all five at the email addresses used to comment. Please contact me at kaitlyndunnett@gmail.com if you did not receive this email

We’re sharing this from Print Bookstore. A chance for you to help a Maine library:

From Print Bookstore

As many of you might have heard on July 25th the Dr. Levesque Elementary School in Frenchville ME was destroyed in a fire. The school’s librarian, Tracie Boucher, has asked for help in rebuilding their collection and has highlighted the Chickadee, Maine Student Book Award, and North Star YA Award book lists as top priorities in working to replace the 8,000+ books that have been lost.
Community members can see which books are still needed and purchase them on behalf of the school by clicking on the link below.

For those of you who love music, here’s a summer playlist from the Portland Press Herald:

It’s called Summer in Maine 2021 and it lives on Spotify, where username is simply Aimsel Ponti. https://open.spotify.com/playlist/2M3cDbXbs7CnJ7sWBUpiWa?si=7de865fa9f384d23&nd=1

And a question for our regular readers: What would you like to see us blog about? Writing? Maine? Where we get our ideas? What our writing space looks like? We would love to hear from you.
