My first GIVEAWAY: Gods Behaving Badly by Marie Phillips



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 this book look like fun? Enter to win a copy of "Gods Behaving Badly" by leaving a comment here (with an email address so I can contact you if you win). For an additional two entries, either blog about this giveaway and link it back here OR if you don't have a blog then you can email three friends about the giveaway and cc me.

For every 10 entries, another copy of the book will be given away (for up to 5 copies in total)! The giveaway will end on November 10 at 11:59 pm eastern time.

Please note: To enter, you must have either a US or Canada mailing address, and P.O. Boxes are not allowed. Winners will be drawn randomly from randomizer.org.

BIG THANKS to Valerie from Hachette Book Group for making this amazing giveaway possible!!

GOOD LUCK!
