First, a big thank you to everyone who came to a tour event for The Sword of Summer. In eight sold-out nights, we saw over 10,000 fans and I signed over 10,000 books. As of today, the first Magnus Chase book is enjoying its third week at #1 on the New York Times middle grade bestseller list! It also debuted at #1 on USA Today.
If you missed the news about my upcoming projects, here is the lowdown:
On April 5, the Kane Chronicles/Percy Jackson crossover short stories will be released in one printed volume as you fans have requested: Demigods & Magicians. Previously these were only available in e-editions and in the backs of various paperback releases. The stories include The Son of Sobek, The Staff of Serapis, and The Crown of Ptolemy. Also in this book will be your first sneak peek at the project below: The Trials of Apollo!
On May 3, I will release The Hidden Oracle, the first in the new five-book series The Trials of Apollo set in the world of Camp Half-Blood and Camp Jupiter. What’s it about? Well, here is my description:
The second volume in Magnus Chase’s adventures, The Hammer of Thor, will be out October 4, 2016. It’s going to be a busy year of writing for me. Fortunately, I absolutely love my job and I am having a blast with both series! Hope you guys enjoy them. Stay tuned for more details.
