Since today is National Author’s Day, we thought we’d take some time to pay tribute to a very special author.
He gave us Percy Jackson
Not to point out the obvious…but we gotta point out the obvious. Also he could’ve stopped there, but instead we got Sadie and Carter, Magnus, Lester, Meg, JASON…
He’s given us Rick Riordan Presents
And here’s a quote from Rick about it: “For me this is a way to give back for my success. I’ve been very lucky in my career. I want to use my platform to help other writers get a wider audience.” Awwwwww!
His author feedback is as funny as his books are
Roshani Chokshi pointed this out on Instagram. We’ll just leave it with you below.
He’s a master of the autograph
Kwame Mbalia joked in an interview for Riordan-themed podcast The Half-Blood Report about how he tried to signature-race Rick. It was no contest, apparently.
He’s hard at work on The Tower of Nero
The Trials of Apollo wraps up next year, and we know Rick will exceed all our expectations for it. As soon as we get our hands on any info we can share, we will gladly post here!
