A Rattlesnake Lawyer-Luna Cruz Thriller

With Original Music By TREVOR MCSHANE


Jonathan Miller, a Superstar in writing mystery and legal thrillers has created another Masterpiece in his sixth novel, "CONFLICT CONTRACT." Once again, the reader becomes addicted to this entertaining story in a New Mexico setting that only Miller can create with flavor, detailed with perfection. The author's voice is genuine, his stories are convincing, and he has the ability to capture the reader's interest within the first two pages. Jonathan Miller's expertise as a practicing attorney in criminal law adds drama to the story as he tells it with light humor and intense suspense at the same time. His unique writing style is captivating, clever, and impressive. I highly recommend this novel to all mystery and thriller lovers, who enjoy a combination of chills and thrills, blended with humor, and packed with action. Was the daughter of Luna Cruz kidnapped, and where was she taken to? How significant is the phone call from a mystery woman that Dan received, and what is his next move? What decision does Dan make, and is time on his side? Miller's wit, crisp dialogue, and companion CD of music for this novel adds spice to the story as twists-and-turns in the plot makes the reader crave for more. Dan Shepard and Luna Cruz join together in another legal thriller that Miller wrote with mounting evidence in a gripping tale with perfect geography that not only makes the characters hard to forget, but also the enchanting story. This novel is a top notch legal thriller, written with quality and perfection that only Jonathan Miller can Master in the world of mystery. Who is Alejandro, and what did he ask Dan to do? Who was known as Judge Looney Toons, and why did some inmates resent her? Who was Jen waving to, and why was she pacing back-and-forth outside? Why did Jen request to check on Denise, and what upset Jen's mother? Who destroyed Nurse Song's home? How old is Jen's daughter, and is she autistic, or retarded? Where did Dan get a speeding ticket, and where was he going? Who was Tyrone Johnson, and whose suit was he wearing? Who did Dan pay his last respects to at the Japanese Gardens? Who is Benally, and did he plead to armed robbery, attempted murder, or kidnapping? Who is Anastasia, and was she charged with a new felony? Who is Nastia, and did she work at the Ends Zone? Was romance in the air as two lovebirds reunite, who were they? Jump into this action packed roller-coaster ride through the dark side of the law as you witness scary events and creepy suspense throughout this addicting thriller. "CONFLICT CONTRACT" will keep you guessing to the end as in ALONG CAME A SPIDER and is as cleverly entertaining as THE GREEN MILE, with Tom Hanks.

First born as a human in Egypt, known as Maya and reincarnated forty-six times, Valantinus Ragvaldsson makes Anthony Hopkins look like an angel in THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS. What happened on August tenth, when Valantinus only had moments left to find a host for his spirit, and who was Louisa? Where were the screams of a baby heard from, and who was the mother of the infant? Who was the twin of Valantinus gazing at, and was he also a blood drinker? Although Valantinus lived without moral consciousness, was he aware that he was deceiving himself? Since Valantinus was the Governor, who was supposed to obey his orders? Who was Daniel, and why did he inherit the Viscount's title? Who was Antoine, and what did Valantinus want to do to him? Why did Marie despise Giselle? What message did Dagi send to Maya? Who was Lisette, and where did Valantinus take her? How old was Daniel, when he developed fangs, and night vision? Who was the Grim Reaper, and what was his intentions? I highly recommend this novel to all those who enjoy reading compelling vampire stories, describing the behavior, motivation, and physiology of mythical beasts. Ziana de Bethune delivers an incredible, horrifying tale of a predator that sends chills up your spine. The story is a page turner as the characters come to life in a historical setting as we continue to read about blood drinkers, and the dynamics of their society. It's quite obvious that the author spent years in researching an entire myth about the origins and reasons for being in the vampire world as she created a Masterpiece that's different, and refreshing. "VALANTINUS: Blood Brothers" defines the line between good and evil, is interesting, and leaves the reader craving for more. Valantinus is a unique, creepy character who is impossible to forget as the author continues to explain why these creatures behave as they do, and how they breed, and survive. The story is mesmerizing, painted with betrayal, vengeance, and terrifying suspense that's fit for the movie screen. The pages are covered with psychological demons with twisted personalities, and one demented incarnation of evil, leaving you on the edge of your seat. The plot is electrifying as Ziana de Bethune fills the pages with horrific details and morbid curiosity through dark, frightening, complicated lives of blood drinkers. This novel is not only bloody, evil and weirdly erotic, but in the world of vampires, it's a Knockout!

**Welcome Back Author/Attorney JONATHAN MILLER**

Author of:     "CONFLICT CONTRACT"

Subtitle:         "A Rattlesnake Lawyer Novel"

Genre:              Legal Thriller

**Welcome Author ZIANA DE BETHUNE** Author of: "VALANTINUS: Blood Brothers"

Genre:    Science Fiction/Fantasy/Vampire


Ziana de Bethune 'officially' began her writing career in 1992, with the release of "PERSISTENCE PAYS." Unofficially, she was biten by the writing bug at twelve years old, when her teacher gave the class an assignment to write a 'Remembrance Day' poem. At the time, she thought, 'Are you crazy?' I'm no poet.
'Give me a break!' But, she did as she was told and once she began writing, the pen itself seemed to take over. The end result was a poem that was forty-nine lines long, and impressed her teacher so much, that she suggested it be entered in a provincial contest. Her folks packed up and moved the family out of the province, before the results of her entry arrived, but that didn't matter. She hasn't stopped writing since. A painfully shy girl coming from what some would call 'the wrong side of the tracks.' Writing and other forms of art provided her with an outlet to express herself. A little known fact is that Ziana lost most of her hearing from inner-ear infections at age nine, and had to learn lip reading and body language to hide her handicap. She spent most of her early years in self-imposed isolation, never feeling as if she would 'fit in.' But, her stubborn, ambitious streak eventually won over. Her background and her handicap became challenges to be met, rather than obstacles to overcome. 

Ziana has gone through many career changes, from a jeweler's apprentice to professional modeling, to dance instructor to accountant and has even held down a few assembly-line jobs, always searching for her 'niche.' Like love itself sometimes is, it was right under her nose the whole time, writing. As 1990 opened a new decade, she wrote a full-length novel, which was later accepted by a publisher in the USA, and launched her career in 1992. Never one to follow the rules, she writes in many genres, using different pen names. 

Writing set her on the path to speaking at conferences, and workshops. The evolution of her career, and so many years of working hard to learn the craft on her own and from professional mentors, eventually led her to a place where she was qualified to become a judge for national and international writer's contests. She has written fiction, non-fiction, biographies, and how-to articles. Several years ago, she wtote a full-length ebook entitled "WRITE YOUR BOOK: A No-Nonsense Guide To Writing Fiction" and gave it away free to anyone who clicked on the link to her website. Several thousand copies were distributed, and some were used in classrooms. Some said it was the most comprehensive learning tool that they had ever found, touching on topics, and offering suggestions that no-one else addressed. Her suggestion to anyone who wants to write is this: "Don't let anyone convince you that you can't." If the desire within you is strong enough, time, trial-and-error, experimentation and exposure to others in the craft will provide you with the tools you need to make it."

With an incredible imagination, research and experience, Nikolaus Baker penned GODS CHAIN, which made his writing dream come true as he created a Masterpiece. "GODS CHAIN" is a series of fiction books that are linked to each other, containing stories of fact, and fiction. It is a search for discovery to find out where the three Reliquiae are, fabled to be the links to God. The author's secret passion for writing a book became reality with "GODS CHAIN" and the first of the series being 'Genesis' and 'The First degree.' Nikolaus Baker was born in a place filled with history, including the enigmatic Freemasons villages and towns to the summary killing times of the Covenanters, where religious tensions in Scotland mixed with manipulation of human life, and the author incorporates this background knowledge into his writing with expertise. I highly recommend this novel to mystery lovers, who enjoy historical stories, packed with action, and adventure. The author had a craving to create a novel, where the reader would have the burning desire to step into the same shoes of a character, while contemplating survival, and his craving was fulfilled as he succeeded with perfection. What bizarre events take place in a hidden, complex world? What does Cardinal Giovanni Dalla Gassa plan to do? Where there is conspiracy, will truth be discovered? Where there is despair, will hope be found? Where there is racism, can equality be found? Is it through our weakness, where we become stronger? Follow Nikolaus Baker through this fast-paced adventure, with fascinating twists-and-turns as the pieces to the puzzle are beginning to fit one-by-one. Where there is hatred, will friendship be found? Where there is power, can there be compromise? "GODS CHAIN GENESIS: The First Degree" is as impressive as THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST, with Mel Gibson.
