Blog tour and giveaways celebrating Goddess Girls #7: Artemis the Loyal!

Goddess Girls #7: Artemis the Loyal will be in stores on December 6th.
Follow our blog tour and you may just win a giveaway! (See below to enter to win.)

 About the book:
It's time for the annual Olympic Games, and the four goddessgirls are not happy--especially Artemis. Even though she's better at sports than most of the godboys, she can't compete because rules say the Games are boys-only. No fair!

Led by Artemis, Athena, Persphone and Aphrodite, the ladies of Mount Olympus hatch a plan to get Zeus to open up the games to everyone. Will they succeed--or end up watching from the sidelines again?

Series scoop:
Join the class at Mount Olympus Academy with Goddess Girls, a new series that puts a modern spin on classic Greek myths! Aladdin paperbacks, ages 8 ~ 12.

Athena the Brain Finding out she’s a goddess and being sent to Mount Olympus brings Athena new friends, a weird dad, and the meanest girl in mythology—Medusa!
Persephone the Phony Hiding her feelings works fine for Persephone until she meets a guy she can be herself with—Hades, the bad-boy of the Underworld.
Aphrodite the Beauty Sure Aphrodite is beautiful, but it’s not always easy being the goddessgirl of love.
Artemis the Brave She may be the goddess of the hunt, but that doesn’t mean Artemis always feels brave.
Athena the Wise
Zeus says Heracles has to do twelve tasks or he'll get kicked out of MOA! Although she's not sure it's wise, Athena agrees to help out.

Aphrodite the Diva Isis claims she's the goddess of love? Ha! But to keep the title all to herself, Aphrodite has to find the perfect match for Pygmalion, the most annoying boy ever.
NEW! Artemis the Loyal  It’s time for the annual Olympic Games, and Artemis and her friends are not happy. It’s boys only.  Not fair! (Dec.6, 2011)
Medusa the Mean  When Medusa discovers an ad for a necklace that promises immortality, this looks like her best shot at becoming popular and having her supercrush, Poseidon, finally notice her. Can this "meanie" get what she wants and also prove that there's more to her that meets the eye? (Apr. 2012)

Four more books to follow: Super Special #1: The Girl Games (Jul. 2012) and Books 9 - 11.
