Please note that there will be no signing line. Rick will not be personalizing books. You will receive one signed copy of The Blood of Olympus at the event.
Instead, Rick will be giving an hour-long presentation and q&a. According to Rick, "I'll tell you all about how and why I wrote the books. I'll show you behind-the-scenes cover art that was never used. I'll make stupid jokes. I'll give you a sneak peek at my upcoming Norse series. And of course I'll answer your questions, as many as we have time for. It's always a blast!"
If you can not attend the event but would like a signed copy of The Blood of Olympus, please give us a call on October 10th. We will probably have additional signed copies for sale but want to make sure that we have sufficient quantities for everyone in attendance.
