Notes
-  What's Brad Meltzer's advice to budding writers? "Don't let anyone tell you no. I got 24 rejection letters on my first novel. It's still sitting on my shelf, published by Kinko's. I had 24 people tell me to give it up, that I couldn't write. But the day I got my 23rd and 24th rejection, I said to myself, 'If they don't like this novel, I'll write another, and if they don't like that one, I'll write another.' Why? Because I fell in love with writing. A week later, I started the book that became 'The Tenth Justice,'" which was an instant New York Times best-seller. Since then, Meltzer has had nothing but success. His new thriller is "The Fifth Assassin."
