#Win Losing Faith by Adam Mitzner

From the acclaimed author Publishers Weekly called "a gifted writer" comes this nail-biting legal thriller in the bestselling tradition of John Grisham and Scott Turow.
Aaron Littmann, the chairman of one of the country's most prestigious law firms, has just been contacted by a high-profile defense attorney, whose client is Nikolai Garkov, a Russian businessman arraigned on terrorism charges for pulling the financial strings behind recent treasonous acts. The attorney informs Aaron that Garkov is looking to switch representation and will pay one hundred thousand dollars just to take the meeting. But Aaron doesn't have any choice, as Garkov is ready to go public with the damning evidence that Aaron and the judge in the high-profile case -- Faith Nichols -- had a torrid affair during another recent case. Filled with suspense, twists, and turns, Losing Faith will captivate legal thriller fans everywhere.

Why I Write Courtroom Dramas
by Adam Mitzner,
Author of Losing Faith
The obvious answer is that I write courtroom dramas because I follow the first rule of writing: write what you know. I've been practicing law for 25 years, and as a result, I know about the courtroom. I like to think that I know about other things too, but there's something about the crucible of the courtroom that makes it irresistible fodder for fiction.
So, putting aside that the courtroom is something I know, here's a list of the real reasons why I write courtroom dramas.
  1. I like to write about good and evil, and the ramifications of the choices people make. Bad choices often lead to a courtroom.
  2. There's no other area in life where people literally sit in judgment of each other. Of course, we figuratively do that every day, but there's something about it being so stark in a courtroom that cannot help but create drama. Also, courtroom stories permit the reader to think like a juror, almost as if the reader has a vote in the outcome.
  3. The stakes are truly as high as they get -- life and death, or at least freedom is at risk -- and I'm fascinated by the lengths to which people will go when pushed to the extreme.
  4. We all have some understanding of how trials operate from television or the movies, but real life is different. In my books I strive to be completely accurate.
  5. There is almost nothing I can imagine that is more terrifying than being an innocent person unjustly accused. And I would put being a guilty person justly accused as number two on the list of things that would terrify me.
  6. The courtroom, like life, is imperfect. The innocent don't always go free and the guilty aren't always punished.

Why Upping Your PR Skills Can Help You as a Blogger

When it comes to running a blog, there are a lot of things you need to think about to be a success. Some of them are obvious, like coming up with quality content and marketing yourself well on social media, and yet they can be forgotten by a lot of bloggers. You may have great content but if you don't have good ways of boosting your blog's image, or dealing with the people who engage with you, then you'll be talking into a void. Here is why having good communication and PR skills, and even studying to improve them using something like an online master of communication management degree from the University of Southern California, is so vital for blog owners.
