Joey Diamonds is on the verge of being a “Made” man, with ice cold blue eyes that pierce through the hearts of women…and men. After being disowned by his mafia family, losing the love of his life, and realizing the world at large is his enemy, Joey throws extreme caution to the wind on his journey of self-debauchery in the name of fame and fortune. “The Purple Don” is the story of how self-destruction is never simply an internal state, and everyone around can be destroyed in the process. While Joey Diamonds takes over New York, Miami, and Hollywood-aligning with various mobs and nefarious gangs-we learn how the truly ruthless are never out to play checkers. It’s always a game of chess.
SLMN is a writing duo made up of two unique talents. In one life he has fought injustice wherever he has seen it, spending several years in developing nations helping those who couldn’t for whatever reason help themselves. He worked on projects to bring fresh water to areas without it, to provide sex and health education and secure vital aid in war torn regions. He has served on peace keeping forces, campaigned against the deployment of landmines and in the last decade devoted his life to ecological issues, most notably combating the illegal trade in endangered species. He has witnessed atrocities no man should ever see, and glimpsed the secret inner workings of the world run by the rich and powerful making him enemies of some of the most dangerous men in the world. Never once has he walked away from a fight. In another life SLMN has produced a number of movies and is both a New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author.
”He said a lot of nothing. I messaged him and said I was since he wanted people who wanted to know to dm him. I said please tell me you are not MAGA. He said:
“I am conservative like a lot of people have wrote in the tweets - and my role on the morning show was to provide a different point of view than other folks on the show. Not sure what being “MAGA” is. I dont post any politics, dont attend rallies and i go out of my way to help anybody I can - and will continue to.”
All that to say yes.
He claims he doesn’t post about politics but was hired for his conservative views??? I very rarely heard them ask him shit on that show back when I had satellite radio and commuted to nyc from Li
Anyway if you’re not MAGA you just say no.
(Also you know what the hell MAGA means! Lol) so I was like you know what MAGA means. Do you support homeboy?
“Not a lot of things he says but some policies, yes.”
BEAT HIM UP
I said “such as??? Immigration? I’m so curious.”
“Not sure how the nuances of text come across - we can speak on the phone (or in person whenever that is possible).”
”Frighteningly realistic...With fast-paced action....a fun and exciting read with a wide appeal perfect for fans of complex series heroes like Jack Reacher and Joe Ledger, with a dash of Dan Brown sensibility.
”Does fiction get much darker ... Deliberate and creepy, this taps into genuine human traits like fear, greed, and stupidity.
”Any readers who have been fans of Dan Brown's conspiracies will enjoy.
