Rick Riordan gives House of Hades Update!

Rick Riordan has announced that he’ll be skipping his usual winter solstice Q & A session on Twitter because he’s deeply entrenched in writing House of Hades, the final book in The Heroes of Olympus series.

I know it’s hard to wait for the next book, but it really does take me a full year to write. It’s not done yet and I promise I’m not keeping any finished manuscripts locked up on my computer just to be mean! You really don’t want me to rush it. That would make the quality suffer, and I think you’d rather have a *good* book than a fast book. I can promise House of Hades will be out on time, October 2013, exactly one year after Mark of Athena. It will not be late, but there is absolutely NO chance it will be earlier. I will do my utmost to make it worth the wait!

Rick also discussed the success of both Heroes of Olympus and The Kane Chronicles in recent weeks, especially The Mark of Athena and The Serpent’s Shadow being included on Barnes and Noble’s Best Books of 2012 list!

Congratulations on a great year, Rick! Can’t wait to see what 2013 brings!

There’s also some not-so-Rick-related competition, like the last of the Artemis Fowl series and the latest Diary of a Wimpy Kid tale. Which will you choose?

Anyone with a Goodreads account can vote in the Awards. You can sign up via Facebook, Twitter, or email if you don’t use Goodreads already.
