Next week at Maine Crime Writers there will be posts by Kaitlyn Dunnett/Kathy Lynn Emerson (Monday), Kate Flora (Tuesday), Maureen Milliken (Thursday), and Sandra Neily (Friday).
In the news department, here’s what’s happening with some of us who blog regularly at Maine Crime Writers:
Kate Flora: Every Christmas for the past several years, I’ve written a Christmas story for my/our readers. This year, I thought I was going to skip it, but having reread the other four, I was reminded of how much I like writing short stories, and of how nice it is to have a good story with a happy ending at this season. So here, for December 2022, is a link to this year’s story, The Rescue. kateclarkflora.com/the-rescue/
If you enjoy this one, and haven’t read the stories from past years, you can find them all at: www.kateclarkflora.com
A reminder that our December 30th post will give updates on what to expect in the way of books and stories from MCW writers.
For those who like writing advice, no one is better placed to advise on writing twisty suspense than Jeffery Deaver. Here’s a great blog post with some of his advice:
And finally, belatedly, the winner of a copy of The Maine Mulch Murder is: Kay Garrett. Send your snail mail address and I can mail you a copy.
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.
