Beautiful Creatures author Kami Garcia will release her next novel, The Lovely Reckless, this fall, and when she does, readers will meet 17-year-old Frankie Devereux, who’s been living her life recklessly since the death of her boyfriend. But when a mistake forces her to transfer to a dangerous public school, she meets the intoxicating Marco Leone — who has a secret that could threaten everything.
Amy Lukavics’s debut YA horror novel, Daughters Unto Devils, was released earlier this fall, so it’s about time to initiate her into the club. And who better to conduct this initiation than YA superstar (and Lukavics’s pal) Veronica Roth, author of the Divergent series? Below, Roth and Lukavics chat about Stephen King, writing violent scenes, and reading with the lights on. They also share plenty of recommendations for the reluctant horror fan: There really is something in the genre for everyone.
Carrie Brownstein — Sleater-Kinney member, Portlandia star, and author of the forthcoming memoir Hunger Makes Me A Modern Girl — has assembled a group so star-studded for her book tour, it rivals Taylor Swift’s tour. From musicians (Questlove), to comedians (Amy Poehler and Aidy Bryant), to cultural critics (Jessica Hopper), to authors (Where’d You Go Bernadette‘s Maria Semple), Brownstein seems to have chosen folks from every pop cultural sphere she’s involved in.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
