Author has written 7 stories for Percy Jackson and the Olympians.
Currently in college, so updating is sporadic at best and nonexistent at worst.

Yes, I make grammatical mistakes! Everyone does! But sometimes, if it seems too obvious, I may be doing it on purpose! Percy's not the brightest guy, remember? So please try to overlook some of the obvious ones! Thanks!
PSON's Guide to a Great Story:
1 - Lots of cliffhangers (especially the first chapter): cliffys get your readers wanting more, and thus they will come back to read the next chapter.
2 - Some sort of romance (i.e. Percabeth): readers seem to like romance, especially the girls. Adding a little romance will help your story become successful.
3 - Great grammar and spelling: readers can be turned away by bad grammar. Make sure to proofread your story before publishing. A few errors are okay, but more than ten per chapter will discourage readers.
4 - Great storyline: a good plot is key to any good story. Unique, never before seen storylines are always good, although hard to come up with. If you need help, read some of the stories with lots of reviews on Fanfiction. Steal some of their ideas, since they obviously know what they're doing.
5 - Consistent updates: Updating your story every week will keep your readers from being agitated. Also, letting your readers know when you're updating next (i.e. next Tuesday the 17th) will also let them know when you'll come out with new chapters and they'll know when to look for them.
6 - Challenges and other trivia based questions: Normally put in the Author's Note at the end of the chapter, these challenges are always fun for the readers to look up and it gets them wanting to review your story when they know an answer. Several authors (including myself) use this to get the readers involved in their stories.
7 - Long chapters: Longer chapters will get readers instantly interested in your story. A good number to shoot for is 2,000 to 3,000 words per chapter and that's the minimum. Chapters with 5,000 to 6,000 words are always filled with information and are normally highly reviewed chapters.
8 - A good summary: The summary is the first step to get readers to read your story. Having a bad summary can instantly deter readers from clicking on your title. An intriguing, eye-catching summary is key to enveloping a higher variety of readers.
Thanks for reading PSON's Guide to a Great Story. You do those eight things and your story is sure to be a hit.
--The last paragraph in The Princess and the Peasant reads, "The right decisions are not always the easy decisions. I can tell you first hand that is a true statement. But like my father used to say, if life was full of easy decisions, everyone would win."
How would Percy know one of his father's sayings? He died when Percy was one-and-a-half. I find it interesting that none of my readers caught onto that. If you don't believe me, check it out for yourself.--
--In Chapter Six of The Big Three, the parents' business is named Sound Limiter Spy, US. If you rearrange the letters of this anagram, you get Olympus Industries.--
--Also in Chapter Six of The Big Three, the room where Abby, Percy, Thalia and Nico meet their parents is on the 102nd floor. This is in reference to the Empire State building, which has 102 floors.--
--In Chapter Two of The Ten, Percy said he got distracted by a story on the Internet called The Princess and the Peasant. This is in reference to one of my very first stories by the same name.--
--In Chapter Four of The Ten, Thalia and Percy are discussing the next destination and their research and Percy said he was researching Queen Victoria. In his explanation Percy says that it has been three centuries since Queen Victoria's lifetime. However, this would mean that the story took place in the 2100s, as Queen Victoria was born in 1819.
This may be an error overlooked by the author or just a ploy to keep the story going. No one is sure whether it was intentional or on purpose.--
