Did you love the last story you read, but hate that you could not get back to it with ease?  We eliminated that problem with a set of handy little bread crumbs. Navigating back and forth from previously viewed member pages and writings will be as simple as clicking on the bread crumb.

The Seven Sins

by Lindsay 6/16/2008 9:42:00 PM

Jon Land is the author of 27 books, fifteen of which have been national bestsellers.  There are currently over seven million copies of his books in print.  His newest book THE SEVEN SINS: THE TYRANT ASCENDING, has just been released to rave reviews.  


The Seven Sins is the loosely based on the real life character of real estate mogul, Fabrizio Boccardi.  Boccardi was the mold for Land's new series featuring the character of Michael Tiranno.  Tiranno is a complex character and by no means a typical hero.  He is greedy and thirsty for power, yet his passion and drive trump all his negative qualties.  In this story Tiranno despite all his flaws embarks on the quest to save Las Vegas.


The Seven Sins is an ultimate thriller; the stakes are high, the characters interesting and the pacing is intense.  It crosses a global span, the clock is ticking and the fate of Las Vegas lies in the hand of Tiranno.


Five of Land's previous novels have been re-released with the debut of The Seven Sins:  The Last Prophecy, Blood Diamonds, Keepers of the Gate, The Blue Widows, and A Walk In The Darkness are all available at book stores and online.  


We are honored to have Jon Land as a guest judge for WritingRoom's Author Launch Contest and as part of the WritingRoom community.
