Latest project: Writers of Wrongs

A number of writer-friends and I recently launched a blog that provides news, notes and book excerpts related to crime-history projects. We are calling the blog, The Writers of Wrongs. So far, posts have been provided by Christian Cipollini (author of Lucky Luciano: Mysterious Tales of a Gangland Legend; Murder Inc.: Mysteries of the Mob's Most Deadly Hit Squad; Diary of a Motor City Hit Man), Patrick Downey (author of Hollywood on the Spot; Gangster City; Legs Diamond: Gangster; Bad Seeds in the Big Apple) and, of course, me. We expect to have contributions from additional crime-history authors in the very near future.

With big name publishers apparently disinterested in solid histories that dispute the tired oft-published myths of the past and with smaller publishers offering little to nothing in the way of book promotion services, this blog serves the interests of authors and readers. All crime-history authors are welcome to submit news releases to the blog, and an online form is provided for that purpose. A core group of member authors will post regularly about their work and discoveries. Links to author and book websites will guide visitors interested in additional information on a topic or a writer.

We hope that you will take a look at the new blog and visit from time to time to see what is new and interesting in the crime-history genre.
