Hatchette Book Group Giveaway - CONTEST CLOSED

WINNER TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON!

Thanks to Hatchette Books, we will be hosting a book giveaway of Gods Behaving Badly By Marie Phillips. Here's a synopsis of the book:


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?





We will be giving away five (5) copies of the book.

To enter the contest:

1. Leave a comment here along with your email address (I must have a way to contact the winners!

2. You must be a resident of the US or Canada.

3. Books cannot be mailed to PO Boxes.

4. The contest will end Friday, November 14th at midnight.

5 winners will be chosen at random from those who comment and meet the requirements above! Good luck!
