#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.

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…
