PAYA Giveaway, Week 2: Sirenz - Winner Announced

Update: And the winner is...Seleste deLaney! Congratulations! I'll be in touch via e-mail.

Thanks again to everyone who entered. Stay tuned, in the next couple of days I'll be giving away a signed copy of Leah Clifford's A Touch Mortal.

I was in the car this morning when the Bananarama song Venus came on. You know, that song from the 80's:

Goddess on the mountain top
Burning like a silver flame
The summit of beauty and love
And Venus was her name

She's got it
Yeah, baby, she's got it
I'm your Venus, I'm your fire
At your desire

1) Yes, I'm old. Shut up 2) Yes, I grooved around in the car to this 3) I always thought that last line was "Trojan fire."

The song, besides being a catchy '80s tune, got me thinking about Sirenz, my next PAYA giveaway. And not only do you get a signed copy of this tasteful tiffany blue-hued work of fiction, but there will be swag, oh yes, for authors Charlotte Bennardo and Natalie Zaman have some of the best swag around.

Book Summary:

Bickering frenemies Meg and Shar are doing some serious damage at a midnight sample sale when the fashionistas find themselves arguing over a pair of shoes-with fatal consequences. One innocent bystander later, the girls are suddenly at the mercy of Hades, Lord of the Underworld himself. To make them atone for what they've done, Hades forces the teens to become special-assignment Sirens, luring to the Underworld an individual whose unholy contract is up.

Finding that delicate balance between their fashion addiction and their new part-time job in the eternal hellfire biz turns out to be harder than Meg and Shar expected, especially when an entire pantheon of Greek deities decides to get involved. Then there's the matter of the fine print in their own contracts...

  1. Oh, I keep seeing this book. I'd love to win a copy :D

    My favorite Greek goddess is Nike--the goddess of victory.

    Thanks for the giveaway :D

  2. I actually haven't seen this book before, but it sounds like a fun one.

    My favorite (right now) is probably Eros, but honestly that's just because I'm writing him and he makes me laugh :P

    Thanks for another great giveaway.

    GFC: Seleste

  3. 1. I am responding...does this count? This sounds like a cute fun read so I demand that I win :P

    2. Hermes! I don't know why I think its cause he travels really really fast and I like teleporation hehe I also love me some Hades cause he's so misunderstood and Persephone cause she gets Hades haha.

    4. I follow you everywhere o.o everywhere


  4. This is so awesome!

    The goddess of the hunt, Athena, is my favorite because of a little show called Kamichama Karin.

  5. After reading a teaser of the first few opening chapters I've been dying to get my hands on this book.

    I'd say my favorite goddess would be Persephone, probably because I like pomegranates.
