BookExpo America is slowly revealing the mystery guests that are set to appear at various panels taking place over breakfast with some of the industry’s biggest authors. Today, Rick Riordan was announced as one of those guests!

BEA announced the author’s appearance this morning. See the tweet below:

It’s exciting that we’ll be getting some information about House of Hades, the fourth book in the Heroes of Olympus series, as we haven’t heard a whole lot about it yet. Riordan took to Twitter as well, sharing his excitement about the reveal and reminding everyone that May 31 is just the date of the Expo, not the release day of the book.

The book isn’t due out until October 8 of the this year, so we’ve still go a ways to go!

Riordan’s appearance will be at the Children’s Book & Author Breakfast on Friday, May 31. The event will take place between 8-9:30 AM in the Special Events Hall. Three additional authors will also be in attendance, though they have yet to be revealed.

The description of the breakfasts is as follows:

Start your morning at BEA with freewheeling, stimulating panel discussions as top authors discuss their work, the industry, and whatever else comes to mind over breakfast.

It’s a great chance to get up close and personal with some of your favorite authors and learn more about their books, the world of publishing, and any other burning questions you might have for them. And maybe, just maybe, whatever tidbits Riordan decides to reveal about House of Hades will be able to tide us over until October.

What are you hoping Riordan will discuss at the panel?

    First off, I wish Percy Jackson had it’s own fandom section on this site :)

    Second, I just want to know if House of Hades will focus on all 7 (now 8) demigods, and NOT leave me to wonder what is happening with Percabeth in the depths of Tartarus. The title implies a focus on those left on the Argo II, as that is the location of the mortal doors. If this book is going to be like Son of Neptune (where we thought there would be a percabeth reunion and there wasn’t and we had to wait an ENTIRE YEAR), I’m probably going to throw my book across the room (then quickly retrieve it and re-read the entire thing)

      Percy Jackson DOES have its own section here on the site! You can scroll down to the bottom and find it in the list of fandoms to see the articles under that heading. We added it a while ago when we added the other new categories. :)

      I don’t think Riordan will be leaving us hanging about Percy and Annabeth for the whole entire book. That would be so disheartening. He already knows what that cliffhanger did to us to begin with!

      That is EXACTLY how I felt when I finished The Mark of Athena!! Well….. I didn’t actually throw it; I only mentaly threw it. I HATED the ending, but I LOVED it sooo much!!!!

    just out of curiosity when you are finished with this series are you going to continue bringing the different regions of gods together or are you going to move on to another set of gods like the Vikings and incorporate them in with the Egyptians, Romans and Greeks?

      Riordan talks a little bit about what he plans on doing next in this article we posted back in October: http://www.hypable.com/2012/10/15/the-mark-of-athena-book-tour-recap/. He’s going to be doing Norse gods next and MAY do a crossover novel, but he said he hasn’t really thought about the logistics of that yet. Hope that helps! :)

  • beabe

    I hope he discuses the House of Hades, and whether or not he will make a new Kane series.
