Next week at Maine Crime Writers there will be posts by Charlene D’Avanzo (Monday), Kaitlyn Dunnett/Kathy Lynn Emerson (Tuesday), Matt Cost (Thursday) and Susan Vaughan (Friday). On Wednesday we’ll post the second in our series of interviews with MCW regulars, this time with Susan Vaughan
In the news department, here’s what’s happening with some of us who blog regularly at Maine Crime Writers:
From Kathy Lynn Emerson: Two bits of e-book reprint news from me.
First, I was able to have the e-book of the 2008 version of How to Write Killer Historical Mysteries taken down on Kindle (this was the overpriced one I for which I would no longer receive royalties because the original publisher has gone out of business). However, Amazon promptly blocked the 2022 edition AGAIN, probably because there’s a free bootleg version of the 2008 e-book floating around somewhere in cyberspace. For the moment, I’m giving up on having a Kindle edition. My self-published 2022 e-book edition is readily available from all other e-book sellers at $4.99. If you already have the 2008 edition, there isn’t enough that’s different in this one to make purchasing it worthwhile.
Second, in happier news, Volume Two of The Face Down Collection is now available in e-book only for $9.99. This one contains books four through seven of the Face Down novels plus three short stories connected to the series. I’m proofreading the third and final volume right now, aiming for February or early March publication.
