Meet the Immortal Cyberpunk, the Real DESTROYING ANGEL, Free Until October 21st

Free Kindle Download of DESTROYING ANGEL
My novel Destroying Angel just went on the Free Kindle list for the next 4 days. Check it out.

A VERY old hacker named BJ meets a computer genius who calls herself Black Madonna and who speaks only in palindromes—sentences that read the same backward as they do forward. Black Madonna has created an A. I. (Artificial Intelligence) entity called Black Dragon, and BJ must protect the enigmatic Jonathan and the nucleus of savant women unleashed by Jonathan's special gift from the diabolical Father Love, who is trying to control Black Madonna and her Black Dragon. Over a six-day period, BJ learns that he's been groomed lo these many years to become…The Destroying Angel.

Science fiction author Jerry Pournelle calls Destroying Angel a "tour de force." The late Frank Herbert (author of Dune) convinced ME to run for Congress in 1978. Luckily I lost, because I then went into guerrilla warfare advertising. My one-man ad agency took Larry Ellison and Oracle from $15 million to over $1 billion in sales. I also also did the pre-IPO assault on Siebel for Marc Benioff's Salesforce.com. Destroying Angel is guerrilla warfare of another sort.

At the end of the first day, it was in the top-100 Kindle Free Books and ranked #2 in Crime.

#MyDinnerWithTrump: Download DADDY'S LITTLE FELONS free until October 15th

I just started the free promotion for the Kindle version of Daddy's Little Felons this morning, and as of 3:21 PM Mountain time today, almost 2,000 people have downloaded it. Again, I ask, "Why not turn cyber security into an income generator for the U.S. Government by invoking Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution and create an army of licensed, bonded CYBER PRIV ATEERS to clean up the webverse?" Wether or not this idea ever catches on, initial reviews of Daddy's Little Felons average five stars. So worst case, it's an entertaining romp. 

Click here to go to the free Kindle download link at Amazon. 

As the day progressed, Daddy's Little Felons moved to #40 in the overall Free Kindle Store, and ranked #1 in Crime and #2 in Thrillers, with over 3,000 people downloading it. Here are the stats:

Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #40 Free in Kindle Store (See Top 100 Free in Kindle Store)
#2 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Literature & Fiction > Action & Adventure > Mystery, Thriller & Suspense > Thriller

At the close of the promotion on Saturday, October 15th, over 5,600 people took advantage of the free promotion. Which means that since there are hyperlinks to this blog throughout the book, many  new readers will find out about Cyber Privateering and The Morgan Doctrine. Welcome, one and all.

#MyDinnerWithTrump: London Lets Private Sector Chase Cybercriminal's Assets!

Interesting story in today's UK Register (read it here). At least it's ONE STEP in the right direction. Because of a "lower standard of proof" in civil courts, City of London Police are piloting a program where they "share the loot" with private parties who go after cybercrooks' assets. Yep, this recognizes the reality  that governments have limited bandwidth. But we're still waiting for full privatization of cyber security and full adoption of the Privateer Code (read it here).

#MyDinnerWithTrump: "U.S. Wrestles With How to FIght Back Against Cyberattacks"

Sunday's New York Times story (read it here) gives Mr. Trump another reason to consider a unique approach to countering cyberattacks with cyber privateers. Why on earth are the Russians concentrating on the Democrats, though? You'd think they'd want Hillary in office, so they could blackmail her over the state department emails.

#MyDinnerWithTrump: Yo Bibi, It's Really Up To You To Release Hillary's Emails

When Mr. Trump took my suggestion to coax Hillary's emails out of a world leader, Putin may have seemed opportune to him. But IMHO, it really needs to come from a friend and an ally of the U.S. Which leaves only you, as illustrated by the media firestorm over his invitation to the Russians.

Think about it. But don't think too long.
