Weekend Update: November 18-19, 2023

Next week at Maine Crime Writers there will be posts by Kate Flora (Monday), Sandra Neily (Tuesday), Dick Cass (Wednesday) and Matt Cost (Friday). Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

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

 Body Contest Results? Are, alas, delayed, but will post next week.

Kate Flora is thrilled that book 8 in her Joe Burgess police procedural series will debut in December.

John Clark has had several good things happen recently. One of his short stories was selected by the Principal Foundation for Money Chronicles: A Story initiative. Read on for more details here: https://short-edition.com/en/contest/principal-2023/finalists

In late October, one of his stories was featured on Mysteryrat’s Maze podcast. https://mysteryratsmaze.podbean.com/e/when-a-prank-goes-bad-by-john-r-clark/

His latest anthology Dark Maine is out and available at Amazon, or from the author

On a note unrelated to crime (we hope) don’t miss Gardens Aglow, the seasonal light display at the Coastal Maine Botanical Garden.

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.
