Another sneak peek of a page from the upcoming Olympians Book 4, Hades. The Lord of the Dead is giving his bride-to-be a tour of what will be her kingdom. They're wandering through the Fields of Asphodel, where the anonymous shades dwell, when Persephone encounters the Fates (in their aspect as the Furies). They deliver a warning unto her" Whoever eats the food of the dead must remain in the Land of the Dead."

Come by the Brooklyn Lyceum and check out the King Con! It's a great comic show with tons of great guests! Just check out that poster! Heck, even I'm on it!
I'll be manning the Drawbridge table from 11 to 1 on Saturday, and from 3 to 5 on Sunday. I'll even be taking commissions, so if you want an O'Connor original, LIKE THE TYPE YOU OCCASIONALLY SEE ON THIS VERY PAGE, stop on by!

I just received this lovely piece of fan mail from Jazmin, and, since she asked, I'm sharing it with all of you. I reproduced the original coloring because, well, green is one of my two favorite colors. Unfortunately, the letter had some very nice emoticons that I am unable to reproduce here.
OK LIKE I'VE SAID THIS BEFORE UR BOOKS ARE ONE OF A KIND. I'VE READ THE BOOKS OF ZEUS AND ATHENA A HUNDRED TIMES OVER. SO LIKE MANY OTHER PPL IVE BEEN ANXIOUSLY WAITING FOR HERA (WHICH BY THE WAY COULD BE MY FAV.BOOK) TO BE RELEASED IN THE FALL. NOW I REALIZE THAT IT COULD HAVE ALREADY BEEN RELEASE BUT THIS I JUST IN CASE. U DONT HAVE TO REPLY BACK JUST POST IT POST IT ON UR BLOG. BY THE WAY DID I MENTION THAT OLYMPIANS RULE 8D.
P.S. THANX FOR TAKING TIME OUT OF UR DAY 2 READ THIS XD
Well, I never get tired of hearing that people like my books!
As it stands right now, Hera: The Goddess and her Glory does not come out until July of next year, which is, I know, a very long time off. We're trying to move it up to April, but no promises yet. The good news is that after Hera, we will be speeding up the releases. Book 4, Hades: The Wealthy One should be out soon after that, followed closely by Books 5 and 6, on Poseidon and Aphrodite.
