Weekend Update: February 4-5, 2023

Next week at Maine Crime Writers there will be posts by Brenda Buchanan (Monday), Jule Selbo (Tuesday), Joe Souza (Thursday), and John Clark (Friday).

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

Matt Cost has had the second book in the Clay Wolfe Trap series, Mind Trap, be released on audiobook through Audible. This follows last month’s release of Wolfe Trap. The second book in his Mainely Mystery series, Mainely Fear, will release on audible February 15th. Cost also did an interview with Big Blend Radio that will air on April 12th, the release date of his his debut Brooklyn 8 Ballo mystery, Velma Gone Awry. He has also had a request, and written, an article for Writer’s Digest on how an author decides who lives and who dies in their novels, To Kill or to Let Live.

Kate Flora: An important question for our readers. In the past few years, spring has brought our “Where Would You Put The Body” contest. Although the photos submitted have been great, and greatly entertaining, we’ve hoped for more entrants. So we are asking you: Should we run the contest again this year?

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.
