Next week at Maine Crime Writers there will be re-posts by MCW alumni Monday and Tuesday, and then posts by Kate Flora (Thursday), and Kaitlyn Dunnett/Kathy Lynn Emerson (Friday). 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:
Maureen Milliken will be at a live author talk at Springvale Public Library 6 p.m. next Thursday (Sept. 2). Cold Hard News, her first Bernie O’Dea novel, is one of the Maine Humanities Council library mysteries by Maine authors series, and the library patrons are having her in for a chat about it, as well as Maine mystery writing in general. She’ll also join Maine writer (and fellow Holy Cross alumn) Irene Drago at 6 p.m. Sept. 14 at Topsham Public Library, under the big tent, in an event postponed from May.
Kaitlyn Dunnett: The winner of an autographed copy of my The Mystery of the Missing Bagpipes (w/a Kathy Lynn Emerson) is Heather Elizabeth.

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
