Graduation, The Next Generation
posted on Sunday 19th of May 2013
A little Riordan family fun for you: Yesterday, our older son Haley graduated from high school, which was quite a milestone. As you may know, Haley was the reason I wrote the Percy Jackson books, since they began as bedtime stories for him when he was in first grade and was struggling with reading. Now he's doing great, and in fact just finished editing the manuscript for his first novel!Graduation day made me think of my own high school graduati...
Book Expo America
posted on Monday 13th of May 2013
This will be the first time in a few years I've been able to attend BEA, Book Expo America, the main convention for the publishing industry at the Javits Center in Manhattan. Last year I was invited, but the show was held on June 5, which is my wife's and my mutual birthday and our anniversary, so that wasn't possible!Anyway, I've seen some buzz about what I'll be doing at BEA, some of it true, some of it not true, so I thought I'd let you know w...
A Mother's Day Post Revisited
posted on Sunday 12th of May 2013
For many years, I would be on book tour in early May, so I always missed Mother's Day. I am very grateful that this year, I get to be home with my wife and kids! We'll also be going to breakfast with my mom. Because of this, I won't be spending a lot of time writing a new blog post, but I did look back in the archives for this one, written when I was traveling on tour back in 2007 for The Titan's Curse. (So don't get excited about the tour ...
Get Out Your Juju Knives!
posted on Sunday 28th of April 2013
I spent the weekend with a great book: Akata Witch by Nnedi Okorafor. As you can guess, I’m a sucker for all kinds of mythology, and this middle grade/YA fantasy is steeped in the myth and magic of Nigeria. Our main character is Sunny, a twelve-year-old girl born in the U.S. but recently moved to her parents’ homeland of Nigeria. Sunny stands out in more ways than one – she’s albino, she’s a prodigy at soccer, and she’s teased at scho...
Reading Myths and the Myths of Reading
posted on Saturday 20th of April 2013
I had a wonderful time giving the first keynote address for the International Reading Association today in San Antonio. If you're curious, below is the text of my speech: Reading Myths and the Myths of ReadingIntro:The first time I spoke at an IRA convention was right here in San Antonio in 2005. The Lightning Thief had just come out and there were 15 people in the room. You guys have multiplied! It’s an honor to be back, and it’s amazing to ...

The past two weeks I've had the luxury of visiting with fans on Twitter as my manuscript for The House of Hades has been with my editor. Now I've got to head back to 'full-time writing' land, but if you missed our exchanges on Twitter, I'm copying a transcript below. I had a great time answering these questions!RT: @bloggernot hurry up writing, Rick! / (Yoda voice) "There is no 'hurry up.' Only 'get it right.'" Write faster = write worse. RT: ...
