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

 A reminder about our Body Contest. Please share with your friends:

Yes, friends, it’s back: Our “Where Would You Put the Body?” contest

It’s Maine Crime Writers “Where Would You Put the Body?” contest – late summer/early fall edition. How do you enter? Send a photograph of your chosen spot to: WritingAboutCrime@gmail.com with “Where Would You Put the Body?” in the subject line. There will be prizes for First, Second, and Third place–books of course and other Maine goodies. You may enter no more than three photographs, each one entered separately. They must be of Maine places and you must identify the place in your submission. Photos must be the submitter’s original work. Contest will run through the middle of October.

Sandra Neily’s up at Moosehead Lake sharing a presentation with her good friend, Ron Joseph. “On August 8th at 4 PM in Greenville, Maine the Shaw Public Library will host two locally themed authors who—with laughter as well as some drama— bring the north woods and its wildlife to life. Ron Joseph’s memoir as a wildlife biologist and author Sandra Neily’s mysteries share a love of and concern for Maine’s woods, waters, and wildlife. (Books are for sale and the authors will hold a give-away raffle for free copies!”

Check out Sandra’s Ron Joseph interview for more background.
