However you do it, how you write your initial query is the key to success. This is what gets your e-mail query opened and read. Then, this initial impression shapes the way your project is considered. SELL YOUR BOOK, SCRIPT OR COLUMN will help you write a powerful query letter, drawing on my experience of over four years of writing queries for over 900 clients, as well as writing my own successful queries leading to sales of over a dozen books and options on a dozen scripts and TV projects. The book includes articles on writing good query letters, guidelines to write your own letter, and samples of letters I have written that led to high responses and resulted in deals in different industries. The first section provides general tips on pitching your material, writing a good query, and formatting it for an e-mail query, which is different from sending a postal query. It includes articles about whether to directly contact the publishers, editors, producers, and production companies or seek an agent to represent you. The next sections feature guidelines for writing a query for books, articles, columns, and screenplays. The basic principles are the same from industry to industry. The last section includes some sample letters, organized by industry. You'll find this information invaluable in knowing how to best make that all important connection. Then, when you are ready to make those connections, you can send out your own query letter or use a query service, such as PublishersAndAgents or ScreenplayWritersConnection to help.

Can a person repress memories of childhood sexual abuse and suddenly "recover" those memories 10, 15, or 20 years later? YOU THE JURY offers a balanced approach in which you will hear arguments on both sides of the question in a representative case argued by opposing attorneys. It's a fast-paced legal drama that takes place both inside and outside the courtroom, when the plaintiff, 27-year old Roberta Claire, decides to file a lawsuit charging sexual abuse by the defendant, her 66-year old stepfather, Lloyd Adams. Although the alleged incidents occurred more that fifteen year ago, Roberta is convinced they actually happened, while Lloyd insists he is innocent and that Roberta's psychologist planted the awful memories in his step-daughter's mind. When the case goes to trial, you'll be invited to participate in the decision-making process as a voting member of the jury. So are the memories of abuse real and do you find for the plaintiff? Or do you reject the theory of recovered memories as "junk science" and find for defendant? You decide. "This book is unique among the many books about 'recovered memories' because it presents both sides of the issue. Readers will get to 'see' what really happens in a trial-and the reader is a juror. Which witnesses should be believed is up to the reader. It is a realistic challenge."-Robert Koscielney, Member/Board of Directors, False Memory Syndrome Foundation "You the Jury is a riveting and fascinating book and shows the human element of the destruction and devastation of family members. It shows professional therapists with their conflicting opinions on this controversial issue. Written in fiction-like form, You the Jury is magnetic in holding your attention to an issue and tragedy that is all too endemic in our society."-Claire R. Reeves, President/Founder, Mothers Against Sexual Abuse, MASA

Nurses are already nurse managers. They must manage patient caseloads and care plans as well as supervise aides, technicians, and other care providers. But moving from this type of organic management to a defined nurse manager role is not a natural progression. Nurse managers must command a vast, diverse, and robust skill set, and those skills must first be defined, explained, and operationalized for success. In an environment that offers new managers little support, where do they turn? The Nurse Manager’s Survival Guide (4th Ed.) provides an overview of a nurse manager’s major roles and responsibilities—all the fundamentals needed for success in one easy-to-use, consolidated, practical reference. From tips on building the right team to budgeting basics, time-management tools, and advice on taking care of one’s self (and their team), author Tina Marrelli supplies the resources nurse managers need to excel in day-to-day operations.
