Loaded Questions Giveaway: Five Copies of Gods Behaving Badly










The original deadline for signing up for this contest was May 28th,
however, in order to make time for even more giveaways in the
very near future, the deadline has been changed to May 1st.

Stay tuned for details! Sign up today!



Marie Phillips' first novel finds a number of the famed Greek Gods and Goddesses living in modern day London, all packed in a dilapidated house that no one takes the time to upkeep. Far from the powerful beings they once were these gods find that their powers are wanning, the monotony of holding down mortal jobs taxing. In Gods Behaving Badly we find Apollo working as a television psychic, his aunt Aphrodite passes her days working as phone-sex worker and Artemis a dog walker all while Zeus ages slowly in the attic under the watchful eye of the dangerous Hera.

Gods Behaving Badly picks up steam as Aphrodite and her son Eros hatch a plan to make Apollo fall in love with a mousy cleaning lady who continually dodges his attempts at wooing her.

I read this book before it was released and really enjoyed it, Phillips does a great job of keeping the story moving while offering the reader a very new view of otherwise ancient Greek mythological characters.

Not just to throw my name in the hat but also (1) to try to practice what I preach (comment on the blogs I read) and (2) to ask you the name of the two fonts you use in your post titles. Not a loaded question, but a question none the less.
