Blog Tour: Medusa the Mean Character Interview & Giveaway

Today I’m welcoming Medusa to my blog as part of the Blog Tour for Joan Holub & Susanne William’s newest release:  Medusa the Mean.

Character Interview:

Hi Kathy,

Medusa, here. Thanks for interviewing me on your blog to celebrate the release of Goddess Girls 8: Medusa the Mean. Finally, those two authors gave me my own book. What took them so long?


Skittles or M&Ms?

Ambrosia-flavored M&Ms. If only ambrosia would turn me into an immortal like almost everyone else at Mount Olympus Academy!


What is something people would be surprised to know about you?

Maybe that I named my snakes. I’ve got a dozen of them instead of hair, thanks to that brainy goddessgirl Athena’s magical spell. They’re vegetarians. Also, my family’s pretty weird—my mom’s a sea monster and my dad’s a sea hog. My sisters are immortal. Lucky them.

What is your favorite quote?

Don’t mess with my snakes. You can quote me.

What is your guilty pleasure?

Stealth-stalking my supercrush. If he ever finds out, I’ll die though.

If you had 24 hours alone how would you spend it?

Studying, unfortunately. I’m a mortal and I have a hard time keeping up with immortals at MOA. If you tell anyone that, I’ll sic my snakes on you.

Thanks for the questions, Kathy!

Medusa the Mean

Medusa is the ultimate mean girl in this series that blends modern drama with ancient myths.
Well researched and true to the original myths, each volume in the Goddess Girls series addresses contemporary issues, like friendships and relationships, from a classically accurate—and entertaining—perspective.
In Medusa the Mean, Medusa is sick and tired of being the only mortal at Mount Olympus Academy. Not only is she surrounded by beautiful, powerful, immortal classmates, but she also has snakes for hair and a reputation for being mean. Immortality, she thinks, will solve everything. So when she finds out about a necklace that promises just that, she’s sure it will help her get the two things she covets most: to be as popular as the four Goddess Girls and to have her supercrush, Poseidon, finally notice her. But when the necklace brings about popularity in the totally wrong way, things go from bad to worse. Can Medusa overcome her “meanie” status and prove that there’s more to her that meets the eye?
