We have completed the sale of my Dads literary estate and are looking forward to seeing his works republished by Wildside Press.

I think there will be a lot of younger readers that will enjoy seeing some of his hard to find works in circulation once more.

My First Book

MY FIRST BOOK: GIANTS OF THE GENRE

My advice for beginning writers looking at getting their first novel published: hang tough, it’s one hell of a ride.

An author’s first book is like a first kiss – something you’ll never forgot as long as you live. After having nearly twenty books published, my first book still has a special place in my heart. It was Giants of the Genre published in 2003 by Wildside Press.

The story doesn’t really start here; it starts about a decade…

Forum changes

Posted by John Betancourt on April 5, 2012 at 10:53pm 0 Comments

Wildside Press has hosted a forum for mystery movie discussions for 15+ years. I had hoped to move most of the discussions here, but the integration is not going as smoothly as I had hoped. For the time being, I have added a link to both the new forums and the old forums under the "Forums" tab for convenience.

One of my guiltier pleasures is the new show Sleepy Hollow. This apparently takes place in a universe wherein Washington Irving never wrote "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow", since when Ichabod Crane,…Continue

"I note that the series was apparently renewed ... I saw a promo for the second season last night. It returns to Fox on Sept. 22, 2014 with (according to Wikipedia) 18 more episodes. Seems like an unusually short season! -- John"

Megapack suggestion

I think that the stories about Ephraim Tutt by Arthur C. Train would be a great addition.Ephraim Tutt was an old Yankee Lawyer who practiced law in New York City. He was the creation of Arthur Cheney Train (6 September 1875 – 22 December 1945), also called Arthur Chesney Train, who was an American lawyer and legal thriller writer, particularly known for his novels of courtroom intrigue and the creation of the fictional lawyer Mr Ephraim Tutt. Mr. Tutt was believed to be a real person due to the…See More

"I'll have to research his work. I'm not widely read in the crime field, so it will take some digging -- but I'll see what I can come up with. Anything published by a US author after 1923 is potentially still in the public domain.…"
