Weekend Update: March 25-26, 2023

Next week at Maine Crime Writers there will be posts by Matt Cost (Monday), Charlene D’Avanzo (Tuesday), a guest post (Thursday), and a group post (Friday).

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

Matt Cost had his third Clay Wolfe/Trap book, Mouse Trap, come out on audio. It can be ordered HERE. The final publisher edits for his fifth Mainely Mystery novel, Mainely Wicked, have been completed and the book will be out in August. He has quite a few events planned for April for the release of Velma Gone Awry; A Brooklyn 8 Ballo mystery, which also be available for audio on street date. Stay tuned for presentation, podcast, article, interview, and review dates.

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.

    Hi MCW,
    Congrats to Matt and all of the other authors. As a transplant to Maine, I wanted to share my exciting news of the day.

    One of my fellow Glens Falls Writing Group members, Syrl Kazlo, was just notified by Fresh Pick that her cozy mystery, ‘A Wedding Gone To the Dogs’ was selected as today’s Fresh Pick.

    Complete surprise for her. Book is #3 in her Samantha Davies series..
    She is excited and I am thrilled.

    It gives me hope for my random scribblings,

    Love the info on the blog posts. I often share with my NY group.

    I will be speaking at the University of Maine at Farmington about my debut, FINAL DRAFT: An Olivia Lively Mystery (book 1). The event will be held at The Landing in the Student Center, 4 p.m. Would love to say hi to anyone there! This is a big deal for me because I attended UMF in the mid-to-late 80s with aspirations of being a writer but getting an English teaching degree in the meantime. I can’t believe I’m going back to read from my book 37 years later. Crazy how fast the time went.
