Weekend Update: December 18-19, 2021

Next week at Maine Crime Writers there will be posts by Charlene D’Avanzo (Monday), Joe Souza (Tuesday), and Kaitlyn Dunnett/Kathy Lynn Emerson (Thursday). We’ll be taking Friday off for Christmas but John Clark will be posting a new Christmas story.

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

from Kathy Lynn Emerson: The first collection of Face Down novels and stories in now available as an 834 page e-book. Here’s the link to buy The Face Down Collection, Volume One from Amazon. It’s also available for Nook and iBooks and through Kobo and other distributors. It contains the first three novels featuring Susanna, Lady Appleton, sixteenth century gentlewoman and sleuth, an expert on poisonous herbs, and five short stories connected to the novels. At $9.99, this is a significant savings over buying the novels separately. Volumes Two and Three will follow next year to finish collecting all the novels and short stories except the three Mistress Jaffrey novels written as a spin-off series and still in print.

Kate Flora: A few Christmases ago, I decided my treat to our loyal MCW readers would be to write a holiday story. As I embark on this year’s story, here’s a link to my first holiday story: https://kateclarkflora.com/a-christmas-story/

Stay tuned to our Win a Book Wednesdays. Starting in mid-January, we’ll be having some great giveaways to our readers. Also more interviews with our stellar team of writers.
