#1 The Law of Attraction started out as a legal thriller! It’s true! Although I’m a big fan of Romantic Comedy, and comedy and romance in general, my first love through the years has always been mysteries and thrillers. So, when I started writing, that’s what I figured I would write. When I drew on the memories of my own experiences as a public defender, though, I kept remembering all the jokes we used to crack to stay sane in the trenches. I also remembered how adrenaline, the heat of “battle” and high pressure situations could lead to all kinds of urges. ;) Before I knew it, The Law of Attraction was a sexy Romantic Comedy.
#2 I always work in “tributes.” The mentions of I Love Lucy, The Honeymooners, Agatha Christie, Scooby Doo, Nancy Drew, Anais Nin and Henry Miller … they aren’t coincidental. They are just the most obvious examples of my nod to the writers and actors of the past who I have really loved. There are also more subtle tributes worked in throughout my books. Have you recognized them?
#3 I love ALL of my characters, and they feel like real friends to me, but Adam is my favorite, and Lily is the character most closely based on me; although she’s NOT me. ;)
#4) Some advisors told me my characters were “too Jewish” for middle America, and I should not stress cultural identification. I told them that I had often wished that someone would write a book with “my stuff” in it, (Hanukkah, the Chuppah at a wedding etc.), and this was my chance to write one. Being Jewish is part of who I am, and it’s a part that I love, so I made it a part of some of my characters too. My books don’t have any religious message or content. It’s Jewishness that’s portrayed in them, versus Judaism, and I’m happy to say that it seems that those advisors were wrong. If anything, I get comments and questions from people who liked reading about something different for them.
#5) Bruno was originally a Basset Hound. I pictured the most unlikely guard dog I could think of, and that’s what came to mind. But then, when I thought about it more, I imagined a dog with the heart of a guard dog, but maybe not the size to go with it. I like that Bruno doesn’t realize that he’s not a killer. He doesn’t let the size of his teeth dictate the size of his spirit.
First and foremost, if you have not heard yet, I have decided to respond to input from readers who have said they like books written with alternating Point of View best. (Books written from the perspective of BOTH the male and female main characters, rather than just one or the other.) I took a look at Winning Appeal, and agreed that it could only get even better by adding in Mark’s POV. To do that, though, I need to (briefly) delay the release until November. I hope that you won’t mind too much. It will be worth it!
Secondly, I am very busily working on a few projects. Because I need to go to my Writing Cave for a while, I need to make sure that I don’t spend too much time on social media. I just love interacting with readers so much that it distracts me from writing! So, to make sure everyone can stay up-to-date with Lawyers in Love news, my PA will be posting regularly on my author page, as well as Tweeting. You can also sign up for my newsletter on my website. I’ll be putting it out 2x per month, and I’ll include exclusive teasers and excerpts, along with news about what’s coming up – sales, releases, author appearances etc.
Unfortunately, one thing I won’t be discussing quite as much in the future, is projects that I’m working on. I need to wait a little longer to share some of that exciting news going forward, but that will make it a wonderful surprise! I promise that I’ll let you know what’s in the works as soon as I can.
So – look to my Facebook author page for updates: https://www.facebook.com/NMSilber And to sign up for my newsletter, or if you need to contact me about anything, check out my website: http://www.nmsilber.com/home.html
Finally, as always, thank you so much for your continued support. I appreciate it and all of you! Mwah!

I am a contributor to a Romantic Comedy anthology being released today (8/18) called LOL Volume 1. I am also a contributor to a Romantic Comedy Halloween anthology coming out 10/21. My fourth Lawyers in Love novel, Winning Appeal, will be released in November. Originally, I had planned to release in September, but I decided to listen to fan requests that I try alternating POV. So, for the first time, readers will be able to get…

Mark helped me into the back of the car as the driver, Louis, held the door for us. Louis was my usual driver when I went to these things. He worked for my father’s office and was trained in security.
It was a short ride, and we were approaching the museum within minutes. I reached into my clutch bag and pulled out a mint, offering Mark one, and popping another into my mouth. After all, there was nothing more embarrassing than getting caught with bad breath. Remember that I said that, by the way.
“So, still up for the limo sex?” Mark joked.
I laughed in surprise, and accidentally sucked the mint into my throat, getting it lodged there. I started choking and making a gurgling sound, and Louis, who was also trained in CPR, immediately crossed three lanes of traffic, and illegally parked on a median in the middle of the Ben Franklin Parkway.
Mark was already attempting to apply the Heimlich Maneuver on me, but Louis was having none of it. It was his job to save the senator’s daughter from the killer Altoid, and no one would stop him. He dove out of the driver’s seat, flew around to the back, and hauled me out of car. Then he proceeded to stand behind me and squeeze my ribs so hard, that my feet left the ground.
Mark was out of the car in an instant. Unfortunately, the instant, in question, was the one where the mint became dislodged and flew out of my mouth, hitting him square in the eye like a torpedo. He cried out in pain and covered his face, staggering forward. Have I mentioned we were in the middle of the Ben Franklin Parkway? Horns blasted, and Louis, who was also trained to take a bullet if necessary, threw himself into traffic, grabbed Mark and tossed him onto the median, covering him with his own body.
All of this happened within seconds, but luckily, we were close enough to the museum that the waiting photographers, who had zoom lenses, were able to capture all of it for posterity. And the tabloids. And my brother.
Mark and I were in amazingly good shape considering that I had nearly choked, and probably had a few cracked ribs, and he had been thrown to the pavement and blinded in one eye. In an effort to reclaim some semblance of dignity, we got back into the car, and Louis proceeded to drive us to the museum as if nothing had happened. I was going to have to speak to my father about giving Louis a raise.
We arrived at the museum and entered the line of cars. A few minutes later, Mark was helping me out, with his good hand, and we were being escorted off to area where journalists and photographers were waiting.
“Ms. Pierce, are you injured? … Ms. Pierce, what was going on out there? … Ms. Pierce, is your driver a member of the Secret Service? …” And then …
“Who is this handsome man escorting you, Beth?” That one stopped me in my tracks. I turned and saw a female reporter, with a spray tan in a shade of Oompa Loompa orange, and hair the color of a brass doorknob, giving Mark a flirtatious look. Fucking tabloid journalist.
“This Mark Patterson, a friend and colleague,” I muttered and smiled weakly.
“So Mark, are you and Beth an item?” asked someone off to our left. I glanced over and saw it was a guy with black hair, slicked down with more oil than in Venezuela, and wearing more bling than in the Tower of London. He had a camera and a smarmy smile. Fucking paparazzo.
“Like she said, we’re friends and colleagues. I couldn’t let such a lovely lady attend a party alone. Nobody would pay attention to the celebrities,” Mark said suavely and the journalists all gave appreciative chuckles.
Wow. This man had just been wounded by missile, plucked from traffic and crushed beneath a six foot five inch, two hundred and eighty pound chauffer. He had abrasions on his palms and his eye was starting to swell. Yet there he was, cracking jokes, grace under pressure. Fucking amazing.
