New Release: The Goddess Gets Her Guy by Ashlyn Chase + giveaway

A spin-off of a spin-off of a spin-off… My head is spinning!
Ashlyn Chase

You know you’ve created a successful world when your editor asks for more books set in that world: 

My Phoenix Brothers series is a spin-off of book 2 in the Boston Dragons series
Oh! And the Boston Dragons series is a spin-off of book 2 in the Flirting with Fangs series
And, oh yeah, the Flirting with Fangs series is a spin-off of book 2 in the Strange Neighbors series!
Always book 2. Weird coincidence? Or numbers? 

Knowing that publishers are keeping track of things like sales, I can pretty much guess it has to do with numbers. I’m not a math person or a business person. I’m a creative person—not that those things are mutually exclusive! More and more authors are becoming business savvy. I’m late to that party, and I’m not sure I want to attend.
Let’s just say my priorities are still with the stories. A lot of writers are getting obsessed with the business and short-cutting important steps like writing the next book, rewriting, editing, re-editing, proofreading, well—you get my drift. Making the best book possible is the author’s job…in my opinion.
Working closely with a professional editor is part of that job. Now, authors seem to be taking on a slew of new jobs. Publisher, Cover artist, Marketer, Publicist… It makes my head—that was already spinning—spin harder!
Well…I’m finally wrapping up the series (or is it serieses? Nobody knows) with a stand-alone novel releasing Nov 26th. 
 The Goddess Gets Her Guy
Many characters from the previous books make an appearance, so fans who have been following should enjoy a visit with old friends. But if you haven’t read any of my books before, don’t let that stop you.

I love to read a complete story even if it’s part of a series. I want to be able to accidentally read book 3 and then say, ‘Oh! I guess that was part of a trilogy,’ still feeling like I enjoyed a whole romance from beginning to happily ever after. Sometimes I’m curious enough to go back and check out the earlier stories if not too much is given away.

Yes, everyone wants a series…which is great! If the author loves the world they created, and readers can’t get enough of it, publishers will certainly do what they can to keep it going. Everybody’s happy. I can’t see myself running out of stories to tell. Maybe that’s why book two gets the spin-off. By then, I’m already creating new characters to fall in love with who readers want to see more of. I’m guilty of having secondary characters who sometimes steal the show. But all good things must come to an end… That's where The Goddess Gets Her Guy comes in. It's wrapping up the whole paranormal Boston world in a nice tidy bow.

If you haven’t already, I hope you’ll begin reading any of my books in any order. See? That’s my publicist coming out. Or is it my inner marketer? I can’t keep all these hats straight!

I use universal links! You can find all my books at all online stores that carry them with one click! Just type:

Or if you’re looking for a specific book, do this: add the name of the title, and voila! 

Or, if you want to start with the book that inspired the final series, you could read My Wild Irish Dragon. (Book 2 of course) where you’ll meet the legendary firefighting family…the Fierros! And that’s not the only legend they’re famous for!

What happens when the goddess meets Mr. Right...but she absolutely can't tell him who she really is?

After leaving his job as a cardiac surgeon, Dr. Aaron Samuels needs a new purpose in his life. Wanting to help his patients even if he can't operate, he heads to the Puerto Rican rainforest to find a cure for heart disease. He never imagined he'd meet a beautiful, mysterious woman, especially not one talking to a frog in the middle of the jungle...

Gaia—a.k.a. Mother Nature—has had it with paranormals breaking her number one rule: Never reveal your supernatural powers to humans, not even your mate. Fed up, she transports to the rainforest, happy to converse with amphibians who don't talk back. But Dr. Samuels is a much better conversationalist, and Gaia can't wait to help him mend all those broken hearts he told her about.

When her attempts to help only complicate things between them, Gaia begins to wonder what would happen if she opened her heart and was honest with Aaron...and herself. Maybe her number one rule has been wrong all along...

  1. Try to stop all natural disasters.

    1. I'm glad you picked up on the subtle environmental challenges of Mother Nature, Betul!

  2. I haven't tried this series yet!

  3. I would get off my butt and try to get humanity to stop destroying the world. I'd put thoughts into the heads of CEO's of companies that are polluting the Earth to wake up and do the right thing.. Then I'd stretch my muscles and show them I'm here by swirling that great island of plastic in the Pacific and dump it right in the middle of the desert outside Tuscon Arizona with a clear warning that if it's not cleaned up I'd start to really get tough.

  4. I would even out the weather for the whole globe. Still have basically what we have now but not so extreme or major changes from what it typically is.

  5. No more extreme weather! Only pleasant days, sunny, rainy and snowy. Thank you

  6. Blow out the fires in Australia and save the Koala Bears. Love ya Ash :)!

  7. I'd correct weather patterns to help prevent droughts, floods, and powerful storms.

  8. I would try to even out the natural weather patters so that they are still appropriate for an area but not as extreme.
