Steven Sears “Non-User-Friendly Guide for Aspiring TV Writers; Experience and Advice from the Trenches”
DESCRIPTION: “Steven L. Sears has had a successful career in film and television encompassing over thirty years of involvement at all levels. From his beginnings as a staff writer on the hit NBC show THE A-TEAM, to Co-Executive Producer on the hit series XENA-WARRIOR PRINCESS for MCA/Universal, creator and Executive Producer of SHEENA for Sony/TriStar Television, and many pilot and development deals with the major studios and production companies, he has amassed a huge amount of experience and knowledge about the inner workings of the entertainment industry. In THE NON-USER-FRIENDLY GUIDE FOR ASPIRING TELEVISION WRITERS, he shares that experience and gives advice for those considering a career in television writing. Instead of the traditional academic and sterile approach, Steven answers questions from a personal, first person perspective. The questions have been culled from the real world, people seeking out his advice and looking for the experience that most books don’t have. Some of what he writes about are hard and difficult facts to accept about the business. Other times it’s his opinion based on his vast experience. But all of it is unsweetened and direct. Even if you don’t like his answers, he will certainly make you think hard about your approach and choices when pursuing a career in an extremely difficult Industry. As a result, you will be better prepared to achieve the success that he has had. His style is accessible, personable and relaxed. ‘It’s like having lunch with Steven and asking him questions about the business. Without having to watch him eat.’ ” http://www.amazon.com/Non-User-Friendly-Guide-Aspiring-Writers-Experience/dp/1614752362/ref=sr_1_1?

Broken Pieces by Rachel Thompson; An award-winning book about relationships, a study of women, and a book with heart. Vastly different in tone from her previous essay collections A Walk In The Snark and The Mancode: Exposed, Broken Pieces is a collection of pieces inspired by life: love, loss, abuse, trust, grief, and ultimately, love again. While still non-fiction, best-selling Broken Pieces is not humor at all. In Thompson’s most intensive work to date, she opens her soul and invites the reader in for a visit. Thompson goes into those long-buried rooms we lock up deep inside and shares a bit of her soul. Broken Pieces is vulnerable, raw honesty, and no-holds barred. http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/broken-pieces-rachel-thompson/1116914255?ean=9781620151600&isbn=2940148396390

Ida Mae is desperate to escape with her freedom intact, but knows she’ll have to get past her psychiatrist first. The only question is, can she?
