This week I learned that pre-orders have been exceptionally strong for The Demigod Files, a Percy Jackson auxiliary book which will be published on February 10. For those who are curious, the book will include three short stories: "The Bronze Dragon," "The Stolen Chariot," and the new fifty-page story "The Sword of Hades," (which will be published as a separate title in the UK). The Demigod Files also includes a map of camp, a look inside Annabeth's camp chest, and portraits of many of the main characters. You'll also get interviews with the characters. What is Grover's favorite song for the reed pipes? What does Annabeth really think of Percy? What magic weapon would Percy want if he had to trade for Riptide? All these questions and more will be answered. Plus the book will include a sneak peek at Percy Jackson 5: The Last Olympian, which will be published in May. I hope you enjoy it when it comes out!
