This week, we are asking our readers the question: What would you like to see us blog about? Do you enjoy book reviews? Want to see where we write? Are you interested in craft? In research? Are there topics you’d love to see that we never seem to write about? Comment here to let us know.

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
