Weekend Update: January 21-22, 2023

Next week at Maine Crime Writers there will be posts by Matt Cost (Monday), Kate Flora (Tuesday), Charlene D’Avanzo (Thursday), and special guest Kristen Seavey (Friday).

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


Encircle Publications of Farmington, Maine will release Vaughn Hardacker’s seventh thriller, RIPPED OFF, on Wednesday, January 25, 2023. It is can be purchased or ordered via all of the major book vendors.

 Matt Cost was part of a panel on predicting the future on Technology Revolution Radio with Bonnie Graham. His prediction was that audiobooks will start being released by chapter, much like a Netflix series or Sunday Night Radio in the 1950’s. Wolfe Trap was recently released on audiobook. Mind Trap, Velma Gone Awry, and Mainely Fear are soon to follow. Check it out here: https://www.voiceamerica.com/episode/140906/technology-revolution-2023-crystal-ball-predictions-special-5

Matt Cost will be on Big Blend Radio next Thursday at 2 p.m. talking about his upcoming release, Velma Gone Awry, which is a a 1923 historical PI mystery set in Brooklyn, NY. Check out what he has to say here: https://www.blogtalkradio.com/big-blend-radio
