Weekend Update: September 9-10, 2023

Next week at Maine Crime Writers there will be a posts by John Clark (Monday), Maggie Robinson (Tuesday), Kaitlyn Dunnett/Kathy Lynn Emerson (Thursday), and Kate Flora (Friday).

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

from Kaitkyn Dunnett/Kathy Lynn Emerson: I have another omnibus edition out, this one consisting of three romance novels previously published by Bantam’s Loveswept line in the late 1990s.

The Waycross Springs Trilogy features three stories set in Waycross Springs, Maine, a location that also appears in some of the Liss MacCrimmon mysteries and in The Valentine Veilleiux Mysteries. For more information, please go to http://www.kathylynnemerson.com/romance.htm Several familiar faces from Liss MacCrimmon’s world also turn up in these novels. Although it is available at all the usual online bookstores, here’s the Amazon link for convenience:


Our friends at the Topsham Library have asked us to share information about their annual writing competition. Check it out here:

Don’t forget our body contest. Time is running out and entries are rolling in. Will we have one from you?

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.

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.
