I'm offering 50 free ebook copies of my novel, We the Enemy, to Daily Kos readers in return for feedback.
Why Daily Kos? Because it's my philosophical community, the natural thought-home for me and my book--I read the diaries here a half-dozen times a day. And because it's a novel of ideas as well as a thriller. It's speculative, issue-driven fiction written by a progressive-independent. It may even be a good read, too. You decide.
One advance reader said, "Enjoy the ride. It's worth taking." A woman who read an advance copy said, "I wish the world you've created existed."
Revolving-door courts spit felons back onto streets uncaught, unreformed, unpunished. Madmen and madchildren kill us with terrifying firepower.
In We the Enemy, the very nature of criminal justice and self defense is changing in the Pacific Northwest--criminals compelled to tell the truth in court, guns converted to nonlethal weapons.
But there’s fierce opposition, and the president, in danger of losing reelection, aims to win votes by taking down the man behind it all, Noah Stone. His weapon is Jake Black, an ex Secret Service agent.
Now a cold-blooded gun for hire, Jake lives an emotionless existence after his wife and little girl were killed. A fog of numbness in his mind smothers everything--especially the grief he cannot bear. Scoring a million dollars for taking care of what he sees as a con man is no problem.
But the closer he gets to his target, the more he’s drawn to Stone. When a treacherous attack threatens to destroy the good Stone seems to be doing, Jake is the one man who can keep Stone’s mission alive, and he faces the question of his life--who is the real enemy, Noah Stone or Jake Black?

Please email me with three bits of information and I'll send a coupon code that lets you "purchase" an ebook for $0.00. Most formats are offered, including Kindle and Nook. Send your name, your agreement to provide feedback (think of a reader review like on Amazon), and that you learned about the book on Daily Kos.
Personal note: It was a tragic coincidence that I began the process of creating and uploading ebook versions of We the Enemy the weekend of the Tucson tragedy. You see, the main theme of the novel is community (and how to come together instead of fracturing into smaller and smaller hostile bits), and a secondary theme has to do with gun control.
I appreciate your help.
