I thought the premise for this new novel by Marie Phillips looked so fun that I just had to get in on the giveaway! So courtesy of Hachette Books, we are offering up to 5 (yes, 5!) copies of Gods Behaving Badly. Have a look at the premise:
Being a Greek god is not all it once was. Yes, the twelve gods of Olympus are alive and well in the twenty-first century, but they are crammed together in a London townhouse-and none too happy about it. And they've had to get day jobs: Artemis as a dog-walker, Apollo as a TV psychic, Aphrodite as a phone sex operator, Dionysus as a DJ. Even more disturbingly, their powers are waning, and even turning mortals into trees-a favorite pastime of Apollo's-is sapping their vital reserves of strength.
Soon, what begins as a minor squabble between Aphrodite and Apollo escalates into an epic battle of wills. Two perplexed humans, Alice and Neil, who are caught in the crossfire, must fear not only for their own lives, but for the survival of humankind. Nothing less than a true act of heroism is needed-but can these two decidedly ordinary people replicate the feats of the mythical heroes and save the world?
Doesn't that sound like a fun read? There's a few different ways to win. So here's what we'll do...
- For every ten entries received, we'll throw in another copy of the book to win. (So if 20 people enter, there will be two copies given away, etc, etc...you get the picture).
- If you blog about it or email a friend about the contest, just comment with your link or cc your email to me and I'll throw your name in again.
- For the super creative folks out there, tell me in 150 words less who your favorite Greek God is and why, email it to me and I'll throw in your name an additional three more times.
The contest will remain open to all comers until November 10th at 11:59 Pacific Time at which time winners will be randomly drawn and announced. Don't forget to leave a way to contact you!
Unfortunately, because the books are coming from the publisher, this contest is limited to U.S. and Canadian mailing addresses only and no P.O. Boxes. But don't despair because I promise to make it up to my international friends soon!
