Want to know some Notable Quotables about the Union of Kate and Henry. Well, Sit Here and Read gives us some information ...
“Till Death Do Us Part” takes on a whole new meaning when you’re immortal. Get to the know the emotional rollercoaster that is Kate and Henry’s marriage with these “Notable Quotables.” From Kate, teenager-turned-immortal, married to the Ruler of the Underworld, Henry: “I wasn’t an idiot. I knew part of Henry would always be in love with Persephone. After all, he’d lost the will to continue after she’d given up her immortality to die and spend eternity with a mortal, and he wouldn’t have felt that way if his entire existence hadn’t revolved around her. But I could give him the one thing she never had—requited love.” From James, Kate’s best friend; more commonly known as Hermes: “If you really are happy and you two love each other equally, then great,” said James. “Good luck to you both. But if you don’t—if you wake up one day and realize you’re forcing yourself to love him because you think it’s the right thing to do, not because he makes you happier than you’ve ever been—then I want to make sure you know you have a choice. And if you ever want to leave, all you have to do is say the word, and I’ll go with you.”For more, CLICK HERE.
Lets learn a little bit about Persephone over at Once Upon a Twilight...
To say Persephone is a complicated character in Goddess Interrupted is a bit of an understatement. Here is a peek “behind the curtain” as Aimeé shares with readers her favorite rendering of Persephone: “One of my favorite Persephone images is one done by "blackeri" on deviant art - http://blackeri.deviantart.com/art/Persephone-36462190. I love her innocence, and the detail in the picture is incredible. The poem that goes along with it as well is very fitting.”

Burlington Examiner talked to Aimee Carter. You can read an excerpt of the interview below, but for the entire thing, CLICK HERE.
Could you give us the one sentence pitch of your book?When the King of the Titans is released by a vengeful goddess, the newly-immortal Kate Winters must track down Persephone and find a way to save not only her family, but the entire world.
Since you have a fantasy novel coming out, the next question I obviously have to ask is: If you were a fantastical creature, which would you be?A phoenix, no doubt about it. Fire? Awesome. Long lifespan? Even better. General awesomeness? Bring it on.
Do you have a favorite fantasy read?Harry Potter. Is that cliché? Probably, but it’s the truth. Harry Potter changed my life in more ways than one, and it helped me get through my mother’s death. I’m also a huge fan of David and Leigh Eddings’ Belgariad and Mallorean series.

We couldn’t help but listen to Kelly Clarkson’s “What doesn’t Kill You, Makes You Stronger” while reading this great review of ‘Goddess Interrupted’ over on iheartyabooks:
Goddess Interrupted was totally awesome. Well Done, Aimee Carter. WELL DONE! Aimee Carter turned her pen into a mighty sword and wrote a fantastic sequel novel for the Goddess Test series. Carter definitely stirred up my emotions. I wanted to crawl into this novel and knock the Hades out of Henry (I couldn't resist) I thought Aimee Carter had me steaming hot in the Goddess Test with Henry, but this time she had me boiling hot with him, and the cliffhanger ending is driving me crazy. Oh I wish I didn't have to wait another year. But believe me, I will be anxiously awaiting The Goddess Inheritance. I say again, Well Done, Aimee Carter!
I got to hand it to Henry. He lives up to his character as the Greek god Hades of the underworld, and he definitely gives Kate plenty of hell. I love when an author’s writing can make me feel all emotions when reading a story, and Aimee Carter has set mine on fire. I highly recommend Goddess Interrupted as one hell of a fantastic novel.
