Calling all DFW Demigods!

Happy New Year, everyone! I’m excited to announce my first public event of 2008. I will be appearing at Barnes & Noble in Plano, TX, 801 W. 15th Street, Suite E, on Monday, January 28 at 7PM.

I frequently get asked when my next Dallas/Fort Worth area signing will be, and for some reason, I just don’t get to do very many. It’s strange for such a huge metropolitan area, but in ten years I think I’ve done maybe half a dozen public events in the DFW metroplex. When the Plano Barnes and Noble found out I was scheduled to do a school visit on Tuesday, 1/29, they invited me to do an evening event the night before, and I was delighted to accept.

This will be the first public DFW event I’ve done in a long time, and I’m not sure when I’ll get to come back, so if you live in the area, please come by! I will do a sneak peak reading from the fourth Percy Jackson book, The Battle of the Labyrinth. (The book will still not be available until May 6, but you’ll get to hear a little bit in advance!) I’m looking forward to Q&A with the audience and a Greek mythology quiz game/Camp Half-Blood T-shirt giveaway. It should be a lot of fun.

My next public events probably won’t be until May, when Battle of the Labyrinth is released. I don’t have a full schedule yet, but as soon as I know where I’ll be going, I’ll post it on my web calendar here.

Have a safe and happy New Year, and I hope to see you Dallas-area demigods on Jan. 28! For more information, you can contact the store at (972) 881-7526.
