The Math adds up to one thing: a publishable manuscript. Finally, a book that brings your dream novel a step closer! Get started today!
FROM THE AUTHOR In 1999, I started working with fiction authors on revising their novels. In order to come to a Novel Revision Retreat, they needed a complete draft of a novel and we spent an intensive weekend revising. The results? Many published novels, including HATTIE BIG SKY by Kirby Larson, winner of the Newbery Honor award.
Now, I am turning to beginning writers and bringing order to the writing process. If you start well, you have a better chance of writing a publishable manuscript--and needing fewer revisions. START YOUR NOVEL is a natural extension of my teaching of fiction and will get you past the terror of the blank page. My passion is to help readers realize their dream. I believe in YOUR story, and this book can help make it a reality.
The premise of this volume is that business regulations are expected to grow in the near future as a consequence of the emergence of a "(world) risk society". Risks related to terrorism, climate change, and financial crises, for example, will penetrate all conditions of life. Increasingly, the decisions and actions of some bring about risks for many in this era of globalization. Controlling these risks implies managing the world through high-quality regulation, with a particular emphasis on businesses and financial institutions. Central to this approach is the argument that a major, if not the primary, aim of regulation is to internalize externalities, or in a broader context, to repair market failure. Such repair can only be accomplished when the costs are smaller than the welfare gains. Featuring contributions from researchers and policy analysts from the fields of economics, management, law, sociology, political science, and environmental policy, this book focuses on three major topics: social risks and business regulation; preconditions for better business regulation; and, theoretical issues related to better business regulation. Collectively, the authors demonstrate that the easier it is for regulated businesses to comply at the lowest costs possible - without jeopardizing the related public goals - the greater the degree of compliance. When successful, the net result is a balance of individual and collective net benefits, and by further implication, sustainable business practice and economic growth.
