Do You Have A Devilish Soundtrack For Your Launch Party?

I’m loading the iPod for Tuesday’s Worldwide Book Launch Party over on #DevilColony. We’re starting to hang the streamers here on The Devil-ish Playground and the buzz is building.  Yesterday, we discussed the all-important SNACKS.

    Great list, Jenny! Wow. Thanks for putting it together.

    Personally, I’ll be dancing to The Devil Went Down to Georgia. It’s the music of my people. What a fun event!


    • Jenny Hansen says:

      LOL…the music of “your people” – that is soooo funny. I guess mine are more the “Running with the Devil” sort.

      Thanks for the morning laugh!


  2. Catherine Johnson says:

    What about Bat out of Hell and does Poison count? Great list!


  3. K.B. Owen says:

    Hi, Jenny! Great list, and thanks for the shout-out! Since I already started a series last week of religious detectives for Masters of Mystery Monday (starting with Father Dowling), it seems only fitting that I continue it tomorrow, in honor of Devil Colony: Sister Fidelma.

    Gotta keep you little devils in check, lol. I’ll be linking back to all of you, so the mystery fans can get in on the James Rollins book launch party, too!



    • Jenny Hansen says:

      Oooooh, yes-yes-yes! The mystery crowd definitely needs to be represented at the party! And of course you get the shout-out…that Terry Gibbs song is a classic. 🙂

    I’ll be singing along with The Devil Went Down to Georgia, too. The rest of my songs aren’t so much about the devil as in and around him. If you know what I mean. Some favs are Living Dead Girl by Rob Zombie and Don’t Fear the Reaper by The Blue Oyster Cult.
