Weekend Update: June 24-25, 2023

Next week at Maine Crime Writers there will be posts by Kait Carson (Monday) and Maureen Milliken (Thursday), and a group post on Friday.

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

From Kathy Lynn Emerson: Remember those non-fiction books I was contemplating self-publishing in print-on-demand trade paperback editions? I couldn’t resist seeing if it was possible and the result is that you can now pre-order paperback copies of my Agatha-award winning How to Write Killer Historical Mysteries, 2022 edition. The release date is June 30. Links to Amazon and Barnes & Noble are below but any bookseller or library should be able to order a copy through their usual channels.

Barnes & Noble



Kate Flora: Excited to have a story in this collection:

Beach Reads Day has arrived!

Matt Cost, John Clark, Kate Flora and Maureen Milliken are at the Maine Crime Writers Beach Reads Day at the Belgrade Village Green Craft fair, 9 a.m.-2 p.m. Sunday, June 25, in Belgrade Lakes. The event is in support of the Friends of Belgrade Public Library. Come on over and say hi, check out our books, and enjoy a great craft fair and a  beautiful part of Maine! The Village Green is at the intersection of Main Street (Route 27) and West Road in Belgrade, about 15 miles north of Augusta. Just head north and you can’t miss it!


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.
