Neil Patrick has a new trick up his sleeve. Harris, currently starring in Netflix's adaptation of Daniel Handler's A Series of Unfortunate Events, is known for doing, well, a bit of everything in the entertainment industry — He sings, he acts, he performs magic, he's a producer. And now he has a new title to add to his extensive resume: children's book author. In November, Harris will debut his first novel for young readers, The Magic Misfits.
After the breakout success of the author's novel-turned-blockbuster-movie The Martian, Weir is returning to space with a new book Artemis. The novel follows Jazz Bashara, space smuggler who has grown up on Artemis, the first city on the moon. When Jazz get's a heist job from one of Artemis' wealthiest citizens, she thinks she's hit the jackpot.
Erika L. Sánchez is completely over the idea that female characters shouldn't be angry. "I think that's a bunch of crap. I don't see why girls aren't allowed to be mad. We have so much to be mad about," Sánchez says. An early draft of her book I Am Not Your Perfect Daughter, our November MashReads pick, was rejected by agents who thought Sánchez's main character was too angry. I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter follows Julia Reyes, a 15-year-old Mexican American girl growing up in Chicago.
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".
