The police urgently need information only Treva can provide and call on Rinaldi for help.

Formerly a Hollywood screenwriter, Dennis Palumbo is now a licensed psychotherapist in private practice. He is the author of a mystery collection, From Crime to Crime. His short fiction has appeared in Ellery Queen’s Mystery magazine, The Strand, and elsewhere. Dennis Palumbo is also the author of Mirror Image.

"Intricate plotting and mind-boggling twists make Dennis Palumbo's
Fever Dream a memorable mystery. The character of psychologist and trauma expert Daniel Rinaldi gives great heart to this story and elevates it to novelistic heights."

--John Lescroart, New York Times best-selling author of Damage

“Lovers of noir will enjoy Dan Rinaldi's fast-paced adventures. Rinaldi, an empathic therapist, is on call to the Pittsburgh police. He needs every ounce of his Golden Glove skills to survive the violent world of Pennsylvania politics.”

--Sara Paretsky, Mystery Writers of America Grand Master, author of the V.I. Warshawski novels

"Fever Dream is another well-wrought puzzle for the likable Dr. Dan Rinaldi to unravel. Fans will be delighted."

--Thomas Perry, Edgar award-winning author of The Butcher’s Boy

“Dr. Daniel Rinaldi is back in a new non-stop thriller that finds the humane, quick-witted Pittsburgh psychologist (and former pugilist) searching for a link between a failed bank robbery, several brutal murders, a homicidal soldier of fortune, a small town ex-sheriff and a gubernatorial election. A fast, gripping read that offers that rare combination of dimensional characters and propulsive action.”

--Dick Lochte, award-winning mystery critic and author of Sleeping Dog

"Palumbo again delivers more great characters, a page-turning mystery and sizzling suspense. If you liked Mirror Image, you'll love Fever Dream."


---Bobby Moresco, Oscar-winning writer/producer of Crash and Million Dollar Baby

About Blaine, Gerald:

Gerald Blaine had the privilege of serving three U.S. presidents as a Special Agent of the Secret Service on the White House detail. For the first time in his book, The Kennedy Detail: JFK’s Secret Service Agents Break Their Silence, the true story of the events leading up to and following the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, from the perspective of the Secret Service agents who were there is revealed.

In The Kennedy Detail, Blaine – one of the thirty-four men in Kennedy’s detail – sets history straight on what really happened that afternoon, as well as in the months leading up to and following the assassination. His account includes contributions from most of the Secret Service agents who were on the Kennedy Detail, and draws upon their daily reports, expense accounts, personal notes, and verbal first-hand accounts. A close-knit brotherhood of agents who collectively suppressed the trauma of that day, the sharing of this story has helped heal their wounds of failure and guilt.

Clint Hill, the agent who jumped on the back of the car after the shooting and pushed Jackie down into the back seat, has not contributed to any books on the assassination, until now. As Hill writes in the Foreword, “I don’t talk to anybody about that day…It is only because of my complete faith and trust that Jerry Blaine would tell our story with dignity and unwavering honesty that I agreed to be involved.”

While The Kennedy Detail adds another volume to one of the most prolifically discussed aspects of our country’s history – between the conspiracy theories and countless revisionist histories – it is the only authoritative account of the events of that day from the men, like Clint Hill, who were there to guard the president’s life. With access to information from this privy vantage point, Blaine is able to disclose a variety of behind-the-scenes stories related to the assassination.

As Blaine writes, “Every man on the Kennedy Detail would re-live those six seconds in Dallas a million times over. For the rest of their lives, they would be defined by the assassination of JFK, questioned and blamed for failing to achieve the impossible.”

After serving for five years with the Secret Service, Blaine resigned following the assassination and later became the Director of Security for the IBM Corporation, and worked there for 27 years. He was then employed by ARCO International oil company and as the Director of Security and Foreign affairs. He has traveled to every country in the world and is very familiar with the issues of the Middle East, former Soviet Union, China, Africa, Asia, terrorism, and international trade and global issues.

Blaine is an experienced speaker and has appeared before audiences of thousands. He has addressed the International Association of chiefs of Police, International Security Managers association, and various other security associations. In his capacity as an Industry Marketing Consultant for IBM, he spoke to many customer executive groups from the law enforcement, Intelligence and judicial community. He retired in 2003 and now lives in Colorado with his wife of more than fifty years.

WRITING TREATMENTS THAT SELL FEATURED ON DR. MARILYN HORWITZ’ WEBSITE (NYU TISCH CENTER)



AEI client Marilyn Horowitz featured the book on her amazing blogsite—please visit it and get to know her and her great methods for finding the heart in your story.

Excerpt: One of my favorite seminars to teach is "Writing the Treatment" because this rarely taught skill is invaluable for the creation of new material, to analyze and improve current scripts and a compelling way of getting your ideas read. Many times, the treatment can be more difficult than writing the script, so it's important to learn a foolproof method for writing a strong treatment every time.

If you feel you're at a point where a treatment will be helpful, I recommend picking up a copy of Ken Atchity's Writing Treatments That Sell: How to Create and Market Your Story Ideas to the Motion Picture and TV Industry.

Hysteria Trailer: Maggie Gyllenhaal Discovers the Vibrator

By Kyle Buchanan

NEW YORK MAGAZINE (Vulture)

August 16, 2011

If you'd like to see old British ladies digitally stimulated into orgasm but you share a computer with someone who checks your browser history, you're in luck! We have that for you today, in the respectable guise of the trailer for Hysteria, a period sex comedy starring Maggie Gyllenhaal. (Yes, we did say "period sex comedy starring Maggie Gyllenhaal"!) She stars alongside Hugh Dancy and Rupert Everett, who play inventors struggling to come up with the perfect vibrator to use on their female patients, all of whom have been deemed "hysterical" (as this movie would like to be, no doubt). You are intrigued? Then press play on this trailer, but beware of the slight NSFW bits that come when these orgasming old biddies pop out a surprised "Oh!" like a hard candy just fell out of their open purse.

'Hysteria' Trailer: Hugh Dancy, Maggie Gyllenhaal Star in Sex Drama (Video)

Even vibrators have an origin story.

Hysteria, a romantic comedy directed by Tanya Wexler about Victorian doctor Joseph Mortimer, stars Hugh Dancy as the medically gifted and Maggie Gyllenhaal as a young woman who catches his eye.

"Pleasure has nothing to do with it, I promise," Dancy promises Gyllenhaal at one point in the trailer before viewers see the events leading up to the invention of the vibrator.

Jonathan Pryce, Rupert Everett and Felicity Jones co-star in the upcoming film, which will make its debut at the Toronto International Film Festival this September, written by Stephen Dyer, Jonah Lisa Dyer and Howard Gensler.

‘Hysteria’ Trailer: Maggie Gyllenhaal and the Invention of the Vibrator

By Russ Fischer

SLASHFILM

August 16th, 2011

This is quite possibly the most absurd thing I’ve seen today, but also fairly cute and just a bit charming. The trailer for Hysteria shows the work of Jonathan Pryce, Hugh Dancy, Rupert Everett and Maggie Gyllenhaal in a period sex comedy about the invention of the vibrator. Or, to borrow a line from the trailer, “we are NOT going to take a dangerous electrical device and press it against a lady’s most gentle areas.” Actually, yes. You are. Many, many times. See the trailer, erm, below.

This is theoretically not safe for work, if you work in a place where the idea of watching the orgasm scene from When Harry Met Sally wouldn’t go over so well.

"Must be difficult pleasuring half the women in the city." Despite that rather dainty photo, this flick is about the origins of the vibrator. It actually looks pretty good, too. Another new trailer for a recently announced TIFF film - Tanya Wexler's Hysteria, starring Hugh Dancy and Maggie Gyllenhaal, a cheeky romantic comedy set in Victorian London about the invention of the world's first vibrator. Also stars Jonathan Pryce, Rupert Everett, Gemma Jones and Felicity Jones, who is barely in the trailer at all. This actually looks fun, I think that's the best way to describe it. Just fire up the trailer below, you'll see exactly what I mean. Enjoy!

Five Star Book Nook Book Club


FIVE STAR BOOKS CHEAPER BY THE DOZEN

CHANDLER, AZ (August 3, 2011) – Families that read together save together when they join Five Star Publication's recently launched Book Nook Book Club. There is no fee to join, and participants receive a 25 percent discount on books purchased online when they agree to buy 12 in one year's time.

"Our ultimate goal is to encourage literacy and a love for reading," says Linda Radke, president of Five Star Publications, Inc. "By offering a family book club discount, we believe it will encourage more family reading time, which will in turn get more children reading. Studies show when kids see their parents reading, they are more likely to become good readers themselves."

Many of the books available through Five Star Publications are international, national and local award-winners. The genres available cover the gamut from cookbooks to children's books, mystery to financial guides, Westerns to science fiction and everything in-between.

To participate in the Five Star Book Nook Book Club and receive a 25 percent discount on books, visit http://www.fivestarpublications.com/booknook.php click on Bookstore and just start shopping. The 25 percent discount will automatically and immediately be deducted from the price of each book – it is not a rebate. There are only two simple things to remember. The first is to always shop from the same email address to ensure the books purchased are counted toward thegoal of 12 in one year. The second is to always purchase the books by first logging on to http://www.fivestarpublications.com/booknook.php then selecting Bookstore rather than going through the regular Five Star Publications website. In addition to receiving the generous discount, Book Nook Book Club participants also get email alerts notifying them when the newest Five Star titles are released and highlighting monthly featured author Q&A columns.

"Although we are targeting family reading with this promotion, we will also extend this discount to book clubs should they decide to make a Five Star their selection of the month," adds Radke.

To learn more about Five Star Publications, Inc., which is celebrating its 25th year of doing business in Chandler, Ariz., and its other award-winning books, visit www.FiveStarPublications.com, email info@FiveStarPublications.com, or call 480-940-8182.

“14 Days with Alzheimer’s” Story Merchant Client Lisa Cerasoli’s Documentary Is Taking Festivals by Storm


14 DAYS with Alzheimer's is a humorous, heartbreaking, intimate and inspirational
account of what it truly means to be a family caregiver and a person with Alzheimer's disease.

This documentary leaves little to the imagination.
And it's about time this illness is defined by not only the hardship it brings to its victims and into the lives of surrounding family members, but by its surprisingly touching and comedic moments, as well.

This film is proof that
while Alzheimer's might be otherwise known as The Memory Thief, it's incapable of stealing love.




Honorable Mention at Los Angeles Reel Film Festival

Official Selection: LAD Matters Film Festival, Boulder (theatrical viewing, and on a director's panel + talkback, and Alzheimer’s Society workshop).

Official Selection: Independents' Film Festival, Tampa (will air A&E in December!)

AEI Client Royce Buckingham Interview : Carsten Kuhr with German fantasy magazine

Interview mit Royce Buckingham

„Wenn ich eine Zeitmaschine besitzen würde, würde ich mich selbst besuchen und mir als Trost und Aufmunterung ein Eis spendieren.“

Phantastik-Couch.de: Lassen Sie uns zu Beginn mit einer kurzen Vorstellung anfangen. Was gibt es kurz zusammengefasst über Royce Buckingham zu sagen?

Royce Buckingham: Hallo erst einmal. Ich lebe zusammen mit meiner Frau Cara und unseren beiden Jungs, dem zehnjährigen Apsen und dem sechsjährigen Aiden in Bellingham, Washington nahe der kanadischen Grenze; also nicht dem Washington, das als unsere Hauptstadt den Präsidenten beherbergt. Zu unserer Familie zählt auch noch ein wirklich großer schwarzer Hund, dem wir nach einem lustigen Charakter aus einem Kinderbuch um das Phantom Tollbooth den Namen Milo gegeben haben. Während ich tagsüber als Staatsanwalt dafür Sorge trage, dass die bösen Buben hinter schwedische Gardinen wandern, widme ich die Nächte und das Wochenende dem Schreiben.

Phantastik-Couch.de: Wie kamen Sie dazu, Worte zu phantastischen Geschichten auf die Seiten zu bannen?
