The agency emerged in 1994 in a small office in our New York City apartment high up on the 29th floor with a view looking over Central Park. All was in place: an empty file drawer waiting for contracts, business cards printed and ready to be given out, connections made with editors at the New York University Summer Publishing Program, and my great mentor agent, Sheree Bykofsky, who show

DSM Agency is currently not taking on new projects. After 20 years in business, with 90 clients, about 600 deals made (over 100 domestic, 450 translations, 50 subsidiary rights), and 20 interns, I have decided to concentrate on the business we currently have and take a break from adding new clients. The industry is changing rapidly and I need time to rethink the literary agency business model.

All the best,
Doris

Terrific advice from author and leadership expert Chris Widener! Check out his books The Art of Influence: Persuading Others Begins With You, and The Angel Inside.

Treat others right. Expect others to treat you well. If they don't or won't, you don't need them dragging you down. Jim Rohn and I taught in our book, Twelve Pillars, that you should limit your association with people who aren't in a mutually beneficial relationship with you! Surround yourself with GREAT people!

Hi I shared your page on mine Marla Miller: Hooking Readers
Dear Madam/Sir: We are two nurses, friends and colleagues for decades, who have pooled our experiences to remind us of the time when HIV was an incurable, deathly disease. We are eyewitnesses to a health crisis that is unparalleled in this century. Our experiences are a compelling reminder of why we cannot go backwards to a time when there were no treatments and no hope for people with HIV infection. In 2017, it has been proposed that the United States government will decrease investment in health care, and will not be supporting the states financially to keep providing health insurance in the form of Medicaid or Affordable Care Act insurance, to people who cannot afford medical insurance or who have limited income. The net result of this will be hundreds of thousands of people without access to the only thing that keeps them from getting sick: antiretroviral therapy. In addition, money for research is likely to be decreased, causing a slowdown or a halt to finding continuing treatments, or even a cure, for HIV. We want to remind people what it was like to live during that time, and the huge impact it had on us as humans, as nurses, and as members of the NYC community of people. We want people to see that going back to the dark days of HIV is not a viable option. We will tell these stories of “being on the inside” of the AIDS crisis through our personal recollections, recollections of our colleagues, and through the words of many of the patients and families we had the honor of taking care of through quoted cards and letters. We have told our personal and professional stories, the chilling details of what it was like to be a nurse caring for people with AIDS in the 1970’s, 1980’s and 1990’s. The devastation and heartache done to a generation of lively productive incredible people from all walks of life. We have told our stories and provided a bit of historical and medical context for the reader. This is not an academic treatise about HIV policy. It is a book of real memoirs, the tearful moments, heart-wrenching sadness, the laughter, the raw details of what it was like to be nurses in New York City during the AIDS crisis. We have given a voice to some of our patients and their families, voices that were not heard at that time. We will tell the story of being on the inside, of taking care of people living and dying of HIV in the days before any effective HIV therapy. We will tell the story of a generation of people who did not get to live to tell it themselves. We believe our book will have massive appeal to many audiences including health care providers, those affected or touched by HIV, those interested in history, as well as most New Yorkers. This book is an eyewitness account to the AIDS epidemic in New York City, we are a part of history. We are writing to you hoping that because of your leadership position in editing, publishing and/or the LGBTQ community, you might be the right person to talk to get our collection of stories published. We look forward to your response. Ellen Matzer, RN, BSN, CCRN Clinical Educator, NYU-Winthrop Hospital Valery Hughes, FNP-BC, MS Research Nurse Practitioner Weill-Cornell Medicine
