In the news department, here’s what’s happening with some of us who blog regularly at Maine Crime Writers:
Sad news to report on one of our earliest regular contributors to Maine Crime Writers. Jim Hayman, author of a highly successful mystery series passed away earlier this month. You can read his obituary at https://www.pressherald.com/2023/08/13/obituaryjames-henry-harry-hayman-2/ and find his posts in the sidebar under “Jim’s Posts.” Our deepest condolences to his family.
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.
