Goddess Girls 7: Artemis the Loyal ~ Lunar Love blog hop!


Welcome to my giveaway in the Lunar Love blog hop!

Two first prize winners will be chosen to receive:
An autographed copy of
our tween/MG book about the Greek goddessgirl of the moon!
 The Goddess Girls series, which I co-author with Suzanne Williams
takes place at Mount Olympus Academy, 
and puts a modern spin on classic Greek myths.
Aladdin paperbacks 
ages 8 ~ 12. 


About Artemis the Loyal:
It's time for the annual Olympic Games, and the 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! Can the goddessgirls hatch a plan to get Zeus to open up the games to everyone? Or will they end up watching from the sidelines again?

“…a clever take on Greek deities…” ~ Booklist
"Readers familiar with Greek myths should get a kick out of this plucky restaging."  ~Publisher's Weekly
 “…an enchanting mythological world with middle-school woes compounded by life as a deity…” ~ School Library Journal

TO ENTER:
Please follow this blog.
OPTIONAL ADDITIONAL ENTRY:
LIKE my new picture book, Zero the Hero, on Facebook.
 Thank you!


1st prize: Two winners will win an autographed Artemis the Loyal.
2nd prize: Two winners will win autographed bookmarks featuring all 9 Goddess Girls books!  
Winners names will be announced in the comments section of this post and I will also contact winners by email if an email addy is in the comment. Winners have 10 days to contact me with a mailing address or prize is forfeited. USA & CAN only.

Series scoop:
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  Medusa wants to be more like her two sisters and the other kids at Mount Olympus Academy -- immortal. Is that too much to ask?  (Apr. 2012)
The Girl Games (Goddess Girls Super Special) The first-ever standalone superspecial in the Goddess Girls series—let the games begin! The Goddess Girls get their chance to host the Girl Games! Told in alternating points of view, this superspecial is packed with Olympic spirit! July 2012
