And I can personally second this as a Texan guys. It's basically a country.
Q: RT: "why does it take so long to write a book?"

I am sobbing like what does this person think that there will be full on smut as they are in Tartarus or

A: Heroes is more challenging & keeps me interested b/c the many POVs.
Q: RT: @percableth is there going to be an epilogue at the end of HoO?

RR: True: I'm writing a new book of the original Greek myths in Percy Jackson's point of view. I'm having tons of fun with it. No pub date yet. But it's not a new series, and it's not about Percy. He's the narrator. It doesn't tell you anything about Percy's future either way. Ever read a collection of the original myths? Imagine that, but the way Percy would tell them. Tentative title: Percy Jackson's Greek Gods
