Vancouver goes Olympian

It must be the day for Vancouver! Three different people contacted me today with news about what Kidsbooks Vancouver is doing to promote my May 7 appearance. I got the picture above early this morning, before I'd had my coffee, and I wasn't sure what I was looking at. First I thought it was a bookshelf display. Then realized it wasn't a bookshelf. It was the entire front of the store. Holy Hera's Cow! Thanks to Kidsbooks for the fantastic display. If you're interested in attending the event, you can contact the store for details, or check my website calendar.

In other news, Haley and I successfully completed our secret research mission today. Once at our destination, we rented a car from Hertz and were joking about how many times their GPS system has gotten us lost. We decided instead of Hertz Neverlost, it should be labeled "It Hertz, Don't It?" You can use that slogan for free, Hertz. No consultant's fee necessary.

Also today, percyjacksonbooks.com was updated. The countdown timer was corrected. (Only 18 days until The Last Olympian!) A new video section was added, and this week's sneak peek is now available. Most exciting, Disney-Hyperion has added a forum section where fans can leave comments, questions, etc. Feel free to check in out. Just be sure to use only your first name if you post.
