Today we take a break from Blog Treasures to celebrate all things James Rollins.
Veterinarian, spelunker, world adventurer and master suspense writer, James asks mind-bending questions and answers them with a thrill ride no roller-coaster can match. Tuesday, June 21 marks the launch of James newest offering of his best selling Sigma Force Nine series, The Devil Colony.
“From New York Times bestselling author James Rollins comes a novel of boundless imagination and meticulous research, a book that dares to answer a frightening question at the heart of America: Could the founding of the United States be based on a fundamental lie? The shocking truth lies hidden within the ruins of an impossibility, a lost colony of the Americas vanished in time and cursed into oblivion. A place known only as The Devil Colony“. -Harper Collins Publishing.
Hope that caught your attention because I know it grabbed mine. James is the author of over 20 novels and one of the founders of International Thriller Writers Inc., of which he served as Co-President in 2009. He has traveled the world, mentoring, speaking and researching the hidden secrets of society.
James novels are a jet-fueled mix of hidden legacies, technology and clandestine religious activities wrapped together in a whirlwind of suspense and intrigue that will rock your senses and blow your mind.
I hope you’ll join us for the electrifying release of The Devil Colony on Tuesday, June 21 at #DevilColony on Twitter. Post devil-related pictures of yourself to win amazing prizes including a Special Mystery Prize for best picture! Special guests, agents and many others will be stopping in throughout the day.

Good stuff Gene. Looking forward to the bash!
Partying with James Rollins, fun, friends and virtual champagne…nothing better!
History holds so many secrets that can be turned into a story. Bravo James Rollins for making the early America settlements relevant again. Looking forward to reading this, best book trailer I have seen thus far. Thanks for all the links to this engaging author.
I’m looking forward to it Gene. I also see you have a new picture here and on Twitter. You have that writerly look to you.
Thanks Kerry 🙂 Getting all spiffy for the party!
Wow, Gene!! Love the list (and am feeling quite honored to be on it)…I appreciate the link love. Now, I’ve got to go click all these (and use this for Monday’s mashup where I’m listing all the blogs holding festivities). I’m off to party on playground!! I’ll see you on #myWANA and #DevilColony and I’ve bookmarked your site to come back to. 🙂
At Jenny: Happy to have you on the list. The chocolate crackles sound incredible. Thinking of making those for the party to “fuel up”, devilish 🙂 Feel free to use or borrow any link on the post. It’s all about James.
At Tiffany: If I could find the suit that Tim Curry wore in the movie “Legend” I’d be walking around the yard freaking the neighbor dogs out and having a grand time! Will have to pull the movie out now and give it a watch.
At Leanne: I’ll add you in above as well. Thanks for sharing the James Rollins love 🙂
Thank you so much for the linkage & kind words. This is a great post! I can’t wait for our big event this Tuesday – are you gonna dress up? I watched the movie, Devil, last night to get into the mood.
And here’s my hat thrown into the ring: Swooning, Devil Author, Twitter Parties, and James Rollins: http://ironicmom.com/2011/06/18/james-rollins/
Can’t wait for Tuesday!
Thanks for including me, Gene. And such a lovely idea to make this party soup! 🙂 Now then… I gotta make the rounds. I’d really like to see how excited everybody is about this party. Oh and yes, I guess I slipped up about the SECRET Devil’s Retreat Spa. Ah well…
Great to have you with us, Lyn. Well, you may have slipped a bit about the Devil’s secret retreat but I doubt the paparazzi will be able to get close enough for the “tell all” shots, so I think you’re safe. For now anyway, after all, the Devil’s memory is long 🙂
