Goddess Girls dedication contest: Your name in our book!

Joan Holub and I are so excited about our new chapter book series, Goddess Girls,* and want to dedicate it to you--our readers! That's ages 8 to 12 and librarians, teachers, and book bloggers!

The series begins in Spring 2010 from Aladdin Paperbacks with:
Athena The Brain
Persephone the Phony.

*To find out more about the series, click on the series title link above and scroll down to "Books in Progress."

Here's how to enter:

Take the quiz below. Send an email to me at sw at suzanne-williams dot com or to joanholub at aol dot com and tell us which goddessgirl (or two) you’re most like. Don't forget to include your name (first and last). If you're chosen, you’ll be notified via email that your name will be in one of our Goddess Girl books! And you’ll receive a free copy of the book after it’s published. Names will be randomly chosen by September 15th. Good luck!!!

~ Joan Holub and Suzanne Williams

Which Goddessgirl are You?

Your favorite color is:
a. Yellow when I’m happy, black when I’m not.
b. Dark pink, light pink, hot pink, bright pink. PINK!
c. Whatever. As long as it’s not red.
d. Yegods! Why should it matter what color I wear?

Your general outlook on life is:
a. Sunny, but sometimes your mood turns dark, and that’s okay with you.
b. Viewed through the prism of romance. You love to play matchmaker with your friends!
c. Life’s a contest, and you like to compete. You’re very athletic and you also like board games.
d. Intellectual. There’s just so much to learn, and you sop up knowledge like a sponge.

When it comes to boys:
a. You go for the guy who is different and off-beat, and maybe a bit mysterious.
b. Anyone cute catches your eye; you’re an equal-opportunity flirter.
c. Yuck! Who gives a rip about boys?
d. Sure, you notice them, but you’re much too busy with schoolwork and after school activities to concern yourself with boys.

What some people don’t know about you is that deep down:
a. You “dance to a different drummer,” not always liking the same things your friends like.
b. You sometimes worry that other people—especially boys— like you more for your looks than for your other many good qualities.
c. You don’t really dislike boys as much as you claim to.
d. You worry that you’re not as smart as others think you are.

Given an hour or two of free time, you’d rather spend it:
a. Wandering around in a lovely garden or park.
b. Experimenting with make-up and hairstyles.
c. Playing with a pet or doing anything active.
d. Reading a book.

Add up the number of A’s, B’s, C’s, and D’s. If you have more A’s, you’re most like Persephone, B’s, you’re most like Aphrodite, C’s, you’re most like Artemis, D’s, you’re most like Athena. Or you might be a half-and-half mix of two goddessgirls!

(Note: If you're chosen, we may ask you to have your parents send us an email that it's okay to include your name.)

I turned out to be most like Athena as did you according to your interview, Suzanne. Not a huge surprise to me... about either of us... though I think there's a bit of Artemis, just behind that tree over there.... Will go ahead and email this to you as well, to enter the contest... ;) Hope the Blog Tour went smashingly! That means very well indeed... ! All best wishes... Love ALL of your books. And will think about the promotion issue in case my brain has its own idea...?

I'm not surprised we're both Athena, either! Joan and I wanted to share this fun quiz, but please note that it's from a contest we ran last July. The dedications are already in the books! If you'll leave a comment at today it will be entered in today's giveaway contest. Zoe's will be hosting the tour on April 8th.
