Weekend Update: July 9-10, 2022

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

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

From Kathy/Kaitlyn: I’ve been doing some updating of my page here at MCW and of my webpages. For the latest, take a look at https://mainecrimewriters.com/kaitlyn-dunnettkathy-lynn-emerson/ or just click on my name in the sidebar. You can find more news and miscellaneous information about my books at http://www.kathylynnemerson.com and http://www.kaitlyndunnett.com

If you’re reading this early enough, come find some of us, and many other wonderful Maine authors, at Books in Boothbay, at the Railway Museum starting at 9:00 a.m. It’s a great way to support authors and gather books for your vacation reading or for gifts.

At last! The results of our “Where Would You Put the Body” contest. Always an impossible task to choose the winners. The minds of the photographers who enter this contest are truly evil indeed.

The winner? Bruce Harris for this:

First runner up? Doris Ray, who put the body in the chimney of Beech Hill Cottage.

 And second runner up? Well, many of our entrants understood that with lobster bait in short supply, it’s a perfect place to put a body. The judges think this one wins for artistic merit. 

Thanks, everyone to entered. We wish we could award prizes to all of you for your creativity. Judging this year was difficult yet a lot of fun.

Winners, please send your snail mail addresses to writingaboutcrime@gmail.com.

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.
