"Good stuff, Michael.  I'm in a similar boat, or was.  I'm a prosecutor handling pretty big cases, murder, robbery etc.  In fact, one of my cases was on 48 Hours last October, and I suspect the air time helped me get a book…"

"I am up to five fulls out there and 1 partial.  Hopefully one of the agents like it enough to offer representation. "
