Percy Jackson’s Greek Gods — release date!

A quick update on Percy Jackson’s Greek Gods, my collection of original Greek myths told from Percy Jackson’s point of view. The US release date has been set for Tuesday, August 19, the day after Percy’s birthday! Book releases are always slated for Tuesdays, for sales and marketing reasons I do not pretend to understand, so that’s the closest date we could make it. No word on release dates in other countries yet. I don’t usually get that information, but if I do, I will let you know.

Anyway, what a great way to celebrate Percy’s birthday! Mark your calendars. Plan your blue cake and ice cream celebrations, and get ready for over four hundred pages of Percy telling you all the stories about the major gods in his own sarcastic and irreverent way. The book is filled with full-color illustrations by John Rocco, and the ones I’ve seen so far are AMAZING.

As if you needed another reason to look forward to summer, right?
