Demigods Invade BookPeople!

Holy Zeus! I wish I had pictures to show you of last night’s crowd at BookPeople for the Percy launch party. The entire store was a sea of young readers, many of them in fabulous costumes. I met all the Olympians, Thalia, Annabeth, Percy, the Chimera, Grover, Medusa, and many more as they worked their way through the signing line. At the end of the night, I felt like I’d just gone three rounds of capture the flag against the entire Hunters of Artemis. The staff was amazing, and thank you, thank you to everyone for being so kind and patience as you waited. We had about 1600 people come through the doors, so I’m told.

Early morning now, and I’m heading off the Houston. I’ll keep you posted from the road!
