For some books, the sure-fire way to jumpstart or re-ignite sales is with a movie tie-in. But with Agatha Christie’s classic whodunnit “Murder on the Orient Express,” no help is necessarily needed. According to its paperback publisher, William Morrow, “it’s the most widely read detective novel of all time.” In fact, Christie has sold more than two billion total books—only surpassed by the Bible and Shakespeare. Still, the star-studded movie—starring Kenneth Branagh! Johnny Depp! Judi Dench!
It sounds like the plot of a Lifetime movie—except it’s true. Jen realizes the man of her dreams (and father of her child) is an actual nightmare—a charming psychopath. A compulsive study of romance, deception and resilience. A down-at-the-heels love-torn sheriff battles racial conflict in small-town East Texas. The murders of a black lawyer and a white woman reveal the festering underbelly of a community. Brooding, timely, gripping. A twisty thriller that keeps you guessing whodunit.
An awesome family trip has less to do with draining your bank account, more to do with forethought and flexibility. While putting together our Orlando Adults Time Out Contest with the experts at Visit Orlando, I discovered how to tap into the unexpected (the stuff of special memories) and even conjure up a little romance. Before committing to a hotel, consider what you do—and don't—need. In other words, avoid paying for amenities you're not going to actually enjoy.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
