Excerpt

"Hera," said Zeus, "you've done quite an admirable job causing deceit to flourish in women's hearts. At our next council banquet a century from now we will joyously celebrate our ultimate victory over those mortal overachievers down on earth," Zeus emphasized. "My will shall be vindicated!" the King-god thundered.

"Daddy, when are we gonna' eat?" Athena rudely interrupted. "I'm getting tired of dumb nectar and ambrosia all the time. I wanna' have some custard, hot dogs, French fries, pizza and enchiladas for a change."

"My impetuous daughter," Zeus answered, "you're beginning to be corrupted by those despicable mortals down on earth. Your enunciations are grotesque!"

"Sorry Daddy, but I just want to chow down before I chill out!"

The rest of the divine Olympian Council cringed in their thrones at Athena's defiance to her almighty father's authority.

"My dear daughter, " Zeus chided, "please do not embarrass me in front of my extended family. And for your information, we shall feast heartily after this meeting. And it's gonna' be nectar and ambrosia instead of pizza and hamburgers, and the music is gonna' be flutes and harps instead of Guns n' Roses and the Beach Boys, ya' dig baby!" Zeus bellowed in mock imitation of his offspring's lingo. From: "Olympus Lives"

Professional Reviews
Pieces of Eight 5 Star Rating
Pieces of Eight (along with its sister book Pieces of Eight, Part II) has received a 5 Star Rating from ebookpalace.com

Pieces of Eight
Pieces of Eight is a collection of eight remarkably imaginative novellas having a variety of plots and themes. One of my favorite stories is "Winslow Junction". This tale is about a family's nightmare. Their little boy, Casey has a unique power, and he loves trains.....maybe a little too much! The stories in Pieces of Eight are based in different parts of the world, giving the reader a taste of different places and the people that live in them. Jay Dubya is a multi-published author in several different genres. I thoroughly enjoyed reading Mr. Dubya's book and am looking forward to reading Pieces of Eight, Part II. Look for this talented author's work by visiting his publisher today. Highly Recommended.
