Amazing evening at Book Soup

I'm still basking in the warm glow of all the people who came out to support #TheAgeOfOlympus at Book Soup in West Hollywood this Thursday. I got to read from the book and talk about the characters and answer a barrage of really smart questions, including "What exactly is written on the mysterious Minoan stone" from my executive at Sony Pictures!
