Suzanne Williams and Joan Holub launch series

Suzanne wrote to let us know that the first two books in the GODDESS GIRLS series she wrote with Joan Holub are out. 

They're celebrating the release with five days of interviews, guest blogs, and book giveaways, April 4 – April 8. Drop by to help them celebrate, join the fun, meet some of our favorite bloggers, and maybe win a book along the way.

About the books: Join the class at Mount Olympus Academy with Goddess Girls, a new series that puts a modern spin on classic Greek myths. They're published by Aladdin Paperbacks.

Here's the whole series:

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!
Hiding her feelings works fine for Persephone until she meets a guy she can be herself with—Hades, the bad-boy of the Underworld.
Sure Aphrodite is beautiful, but it’s not always easy being the goddessgirl of love.
She may be the goddess of the hunt, but that doesn’t mean Artemis always feels brave.

Here's the five-day Goddess Girls tour lineup:
April 4:  Bookmuncher (Interview and book giveaway)
April 5: Readertotz, Suzanne’s Place, Joan Holub Author of Books for Children (Expanded interview with the Goddess Girl team at Aladdin: editor Emily Lawrence, book designer Karin Paprocki, and cover artist Glen Hanson. Have you ever wondered why an editor decides to acquire a series? Here’s one editor’s take.)
April 6:  Cynsations  (Guest blog and book giveaway. Learn how they came to write the series,  challenges they faced, and how they solved them.)
April 7:  Little Willow (Interview and book giveaway. They reveal more about our collaboration and inspirations, and their favorite books of all time.)
April 8:  Zoe’s Book Reviews  (Q&A and book giveaway.)

Thanks for posting the info about Joan's and my blog tour, Martha! This is the first time Joan and I have ever done a virtual tour. We're hoping lots of fellow SCBWI Washington folks will stop by. If you do, be sure to leave us a comment or question. Hope to "see" you on the tour!
