Favorite things writers say about about their jobs as writers – top ten style

Favorite things writers say about about their jobs as writers – top ten style

1. Working in your bathrobe and slippers.
2. The commute
3. Making your own hours
4. Eavesdropping on people in restaurants
5. Making your characters say things you, as a polite person, would never say
6. Reading your POV character’s mind
7. Making your characters do crazy things
8. Making nasty people from real life into fictional villains, then killing them.
9. Writing a happy ending
10. Having fans appreciate your work
11. Getting your next contract

Okay, technically, that’s 11 things, but I love my job too much to choose only 10.
I especially LOVE my latest book. I had two great friends go in on it with me to make it even bigger and better.

Ashlyn Chase
Dalton Diaz
Bonus story from USA Today Bestselling Author Terry Spear
Two Gods are in big trouble with Zeus. Gods will be gods and when these two taunt the wrong Goddess for their own entertainment, she erupts, literally, creating a whole new Hawaiian island. But Zeus is not amused and must teach them a lesson they won't forget. Who knew their punishment would lead to finding the loves of their lives?

Great Zeus! (Dalton Diaz)
Epimetheus knows he screwed up. Well, he knows it since Zeus pointed it out with a lightning bolt or two. He’s willing to take his punishment like a Titan, but all bets are off when his beloved dead wife Pandora shows up. Pandy has no memory of him. Epimetheus has no powers, and no forethought. What could possibly go wrong?

Oh My God (Ashlyn Chase) Rewritten and expanded version of 2009 CAPA and Eppie Award nominee, same title
The Greek God of wine, women, and party, falls off a balcony during Mardi Gras in New Orleans. Now he has amnesia. All he knows is that they call him 'Big D', and he drinks too much and ought to give up alcohol for Lent.
Mandy and Brenda flashed Dionysus right before he fell. They're nice enough to take him to an AA meeting, and then back to their homes until he recovers his memory. Fortunately, they're not too nice to be naughty.

Bonus Story: Goddess in Training (Terry Spear) Previously published 2010 Indie, same title
In a game of the gods, librarian Lisandra, who has never been loved, is chosen to be the goddess of fertility. The demi-god of pleasure, Assarian is ordered by Zeus to train her in the hallowed halls of Mount Olympus to prove to his wife, Hera, goddess of marriage, mortals and immortals alike only need be physically satisfied to find fulfillment, to which Hera disagrees—all creatures must have love to be whole.
