MindField, Book 8 of DS Kane's Amazon Bestselling Spies Lie series just released!

Just released MindField, Book 8 of DS Kane's Amazon Bestselling Spies Lie series, in paper and Kindle formats: 

Did you know that the CIA owned a Venture Capital firm? What's the worst that could happen?

The eighth book in the gripping technothriller series, Spies Lie, perfect for fans who love Robert Ludlum, Lee Child, and Barry Eisler.

When Stanford University sophomore and budding computer hacker Ann Sashakovich meets senior Glen Sarkov, the CEO of a budding new startup, she is smitten. Glen is young, bright, and going places, and his innovative tech startup is seeking money to get them off the ground. But when Glen and his team find a venture capitalist willing to give them money, the offer turns out too good to be true. Worse, it seems the strings attached to the funding are tangled in a conspiracy deadlier than they can imagine…

Meanwhile, the world's intelligence services have all been looking for a less-obvious way to fund weapons development, reaching out to entrepreneurs to help them create new tech. When they find tech capable of being weaponized, they have the creators murdered before taking control of the company for their own use. Now the lives of hundreds of the world’s brightest entrepreneurs hang in the balance, and Glen Sarkov is next on the list to die. Can Ann, Cassandra Sashakovich, and Jon Sommers figure out who at the CIA is ordering these killings, or will the CIA's contract assassins wipe them off the Earth?

I raised over $15,000 in scholarship money.

Last night, I fulfilled that last part of my agreement. Fourteen people were guests at the catered dinner. Here are some photos of the event...
