Weekend Update: June11-12, 2022

Next week at Maine Crime Writers there will be posts by Joe Souza (Monday), Susan Vaughan (Tuesday), Kaitlyn Dunnett/Kathy Lynn Emerson (Thursday), and William Andrews (Friday).

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

Look how many of us, past and present, will be in one place today!

From Kathy Lynn Emerson:

The Diana Spaulding 1888 Mysteries is out! This collection of all four novels and the three short stories in my series featuring a nineteenth-century scandal sheet reporter as the amateur sleuth, is now available as an e-book for the bargain price of $9.99. Included are Deadlier than the Pen, Fatal as a Fallen Woman, No Mortal Reason, and Lethal Legend. Here’s a buy link for most outlets. https://books2read.com/u/3y1M1n It’s available in Nook, Kobo, iBook, and Kindle formats.

Along with 20+ other Maine authors, Maggie Robinson will be outdoors under a tent at the Chesterville Town Office from 10-2 today (Saturday) for a library fundraiser. There will be an auction, luncheon, and lots of books for sale! They’re raising money for a bookmobile. There are rumors of chocolate.

Kate Flora would love your feedback on two proposed covers for the next Thea Kozak mystery. Here are the two the publisher has sent me. Do they work? Draw you in? What would you change?

And one final reminder: Our Body Contest closes on Thursday. Do we have your photo yet?

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, along with the very popular “Making a Mystery” with audience participation, and Casting Call: How We Staff Our Mysteries. We also do programs on Zoom. Contact Kate Flora

    I like the one on the left (more red) as it stands out more to me.

    IMHO, Kate, the cover on the right with the stroller looks more appropriately dark & mysterious.
