Write Reference Books for the Parenteral Drug Association

An opportunity exists to write reference books for the Parenteral Drug Association (US). The list of topics is provided below and is just a starting list and ideas are welcome. The writing is paid on a royalty only basis, which is 10% for single authors. However it is possible to be the editor of a book and in collaboration produce a book on a topic using chapters from a number of authors (the royalty arrangement for this type of book is different).
 
The text must contain some current regulatory material from a European/global perspective (the point is to produce more texts written from a European angle). If you have a particular topic that is not on the list please let me know. For any book I need a two to three paragraph proposal, a tentative table of contents and estimated page count to present to the Technical Advisory Book Board at the PDA. .
