Saturday November 19, 2016 2:00 PM We are pleased to welcome author Kaitlin Bevis to sign her latest book in the Daughters of Zeus series, Aphrodite. It’s not easy being perfect. But Aphrodite is determined to prove that she’s more than a pretty face. When she’s asked to investigate strange events occurring on cruise ships, she’s all over it. Little does she guess how much this mission is going to cost her.

B-Fest Appearence

I’m going to be at B-Fest tonight at 7:30 in the Athens Store. If you’re in the area, come on over and check it out.

Event description below:


Friday at 7:30 PM B-A DAUGHTER OF ZEUS: Meet local author Kaitlin Bevis and get introduced to Persephone, star of her teen fantasy series. Persephone is just an average Athens teenager– goes to Athens Academy, plans to attend UGA when she graduates, hangs out with her friends in Five Points– until she discovers that she is actually the REAL Persephone, a Greek goddess inescapably entwined with Hades, god of the Underworld. If you loved Percy Jackson and are ready for a teen version of life with the gods, this is the series for you. Perfect for fans of The Goddess Test Series by Aimee Carter. All four books of the series will be available for sale and signing by the author. Wear your toga!
