Giveaway: Aphrodite: Goddess of Love by George O'Connor

If you've ever read this blog, you know that I love George O'Connor's take on the Greek myths. (I also love him for turning me onto one of my favorite books, The Marriage of Cadmus and Harmony.) When his new releases come out, I imagine I'm just like one of those people who wait in line for the newest release of World of Warcraft or Grand Theft Auto.

I missed the actual date that Aphrodite dropped, but this Saturday I bravely trekked into the freezing- and I mean freezing- weather to pick up my copy at Barnes and Noble...only they didn't have it. I called Newbury Comics; they didn't have it. When I got home I checked the Brookline Booksmith site- they didn't have it either. Argh! In desperation, I placed an order from Amazon.


So imagine my consternation when I discovered yesterday that Brookline Booksmith did indeed have it. I am loathe to part with any more cash than I need to, but as I held the copy in my hands, I thought there could be worse things than having two copies of George's work. And then it hit me: I was going to give one away!

Below you'll find your standard Rafflecopter giveaway. I'm asking for three things: 1) sign up for my newsletter (you know you wanted to anyway), 2) Like George's Facebook page and 3) Follow him on Twitter. That's it. If you want to tweet about or otherwise share it, awesome, but I'm not going to make you.

In case it wasn't already clear, this is entirely my idea- George had nothing to do with it. In fact, I imagine he's sitting in his Brooklyn apartment, cringing in embarrassment over the whole thing. But that's what fans are for ;-)

I'm running this until Friday, January 10th, midnight, and as soon as I can on Friday I'll announce the lucky winner.
