Welcome to Roseanne A. Brown, author of A Song of Wraiths and Ruin, who will be our newest author in the Rick Riordan Presents imprint! 

Here’s a sneak peak of her upcoming middle-grade book SERWA BOATENG’S GUIDE TO VAMPIRE HUNTING: A 12-year-old is uprooted from her vampire hunting life after her childhood home is viciously attacked by shapeshifting vampires that mask themselves as harmless fireflies, and is sent to the care of an aunt in Maryland for her own protection and forced to attend a “normal” school for the first time, but finds that vampire hunting and seventh grade don’t quite mix; now, it’s up to her to make warriors out of her classmates before they all become vampire food. Her two books in this series will be out in 2022 and 2023. Rick Riordan Presents is so honored to have her as part of our imprint family!

Next week, Rick will announce details for The Tower of Nero virtual book tour. Stay tuned! The last book in The Trials of Apollo, the last series set in Percy Jackson’s world, will be published October 6.
