December 14, 2012 by Sylvia Hubbard

I’m currently on forty hours of no sleep and I am feeling the effects of what a hangover would feel like.

I have stayed up and typed ten thousand words in 36 hours and I am yearning my bed like a hungry baby to the bottle.

As always, I hope I have done justice to you as my loyal devoted readers and I’m going to make this available at this price until someone can kindly just come in and edit it.

Sigh…

Too tired to even do anything or think about anything now.

I’m hoping I did get everything down, including making those changes about Ray Senior’s death and changing Lannie’s age to six.

If you’re just joining us, I have completed NaNoWriMo.org.

I did win the NaNoWriMo at 51K words… see below

My fingers hurt and my back is killing me.

I think the only thing was that I didn’t put in the dedication the detail list of readers that helped.

And that was just since Chapter 40. If I missed you, I’m so so sorry.

Now without further ado, I’d like to give you guys the opportunity to download the finished over 100K story. I did read each and everyone if your comments and I tried to respond and keep track of each one.

If you guys could put personal comments here, but add reviews to the downloaded site, I’d so much appreciate the gesture. This will only be a Smashwords story until I get it professionally professionally edited, so enjoy!

  2. MrsDBo419 says:

    Is that my name? (Blushing) S/N: I love the way you write,the way you make me fall in love with the characters and that you always make me want to read more.You did a very good job with this story. Thank you so much, as a loyal reader, and I can say WE really do appreciate all that you do. Okay like S. Dunn gotta download and finish reading the rest of the story. Okbye

    • awww, gurl, I just write what I wanna read and I enjoy taking others on the ride with me. thank you guys all for your support! Y’all really make me wanna cry.

      Or I could be just drunk sleep and feeling like i have a hangover

      i’ll wake up and start finishing up The Mysterious Mr. Black. Going back to the Black family again.

  3. Brande says:

    I loved it!! So proud of the work you do. Keep it up!

  4. cyp316 says:

    I was to thank you for the acknowledgment. I am excited about the first draft. When I accidently stumbled across Stones Revenge I was hook on your writ ng style. Keep the books coming.

  5. Someone just emailed me offline a little bit angry because they couldn’t access any chapters after 9 and said they had been reading since late November. I think i made her angry because I let her know i’d taken all chapters posted down and replaced with a link to the paid version.

    I do have to make a little money for my time and effort but she made it seem as if I was being unreasonable and said I should at least give her the story up until chapter 44 like everyone else.

    sigh…

    Sometimes writers out of all the creatives realize you can’t make anyone happy.

    I’ve often done that on my latter blogspot where I posted live stories. After we’re done I’ve taken the stories completely down, but I saved the comments.

    Fans who read the book can actually still view the comments, they just can’t read the story for free anymore.

    thanks for all your support though. even if I did do something wrong slightly, but highly justiiable.

    • i meant everyone not anyone! LOL

    • S Dunn says:

      Sylvia you worked your ass off! This is a talent & your livelihood. The book is NOT costly. You have no reason at all to feel bad about it. There are books with less twist turns & passion that sell for more. You really are doing your readers a service by offering you work for such a discounted price. Once you get excellent editors you can sell for way more & your loyal fans will be there to purchase it BECAUSE YOU ARE JUST THAT GOOD! The person that harassed you knows your good too she’ll come around & cough up the two bucks for a good read. I Have no problem paying Because I know it will be well worth the read. I absolutely LOVED THE ENDING !!! Way to go YOU ROCK SYLVIA HUBBARD!

    • Stephanie says:

      I BELIEVE THAT YOU ARE TOO TALENTED TO WORRY ABOUT SOMEONE GETTING ANGRY AT YOU. IF THE PERSON HAD BEEN READING SINCE LATE NOVEMBER, THEN THEY WOULD HAVE BEEN CAUGHT UP WITH THE CHAPTERS LIKE THE REST OF US. I STARTED AT THE BEGINNING AND WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED THAT I HAD TO PAY TO GET TO THE ENDING. FRANKLY, I THINK YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN ASKING FOR MORE THAN YOU DID. THIS NOVEL WAS ABSOLUTELY WORTH MORE THAN THAT. DON’T WORRY, YOUR LOYAL FANS KNOW WHAT YOU’VE BEEN THROUGH AND HOW YOU PUSHED TO FINISH THIS STORY. TAKE A BOW MS. HUBBARD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YOU’VE DONE IT.
      YOUR LOYAL FAN,
      STEPHANIE

  6. waiting with baited breath for reviews of the rest of the book…

  8. Stephanie says:

    WELL WHAT CAN I SAY, YOU ALREADY KNOW THAT I AM A LOYAL FAN, BUT I REALLY WANT TO COMMEND YOU ON A JOB WELL DONE. YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT. YOUR GIFT OF WRITING IS SOMETHING THAT EVERYONE SHOULD GET A CHANCE TO EXPERIENCE. I, LIKE S. DUNN, WILL CONTINUE TO READ ALL THAT YOU PUBLISH AND PRINT. YOUR NOVELS ARE THE FIRST EROTICA NOVELS I HAVE EVER READ, AND I WAS HOOKED FROM THE FIRST TO THE LAST ONE. BELIEVE ME WHEN I SAY THE LAST, BECAUSE I HAVE PURCHASED EVERYTHING YOU HAVE OUT THERE. KEEP UP YOUR GOD GIVEN TALENT MS. HUBBARD AND KEEP US READING. GET SOME REST, AND REBOOT FOR THE NEXT AVENTURE. I AM READY. NOW I’M OFF TO GET MY COPY AND FINISH THE STORY.

    YOUR LOYAL FAN,
    STEPHANIE

  10. Stephanie says:

    MS. HUBBARD,
    I GOT MY COPY AND TRIED TO WAIT BEFORE I FINISH READING IT BECAUSE I WAS READING ANOTHER BOOK, BUT I COULDN’T. I HEARD THE BOOK CALLING MY NAME. AND, NO I WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED. I, FOR ONE, THOROUGHLY ENJOYED IT. THROUGH OUT THIS NOVEL, YOU PULLED OUT REAL EMOTIONS FROM THE READERS, AND THAT IS A GOOD THING. AS I KEEP SAYNG, YOU ARE A TALENTED AND GIFTED AUTHOR. YOUR WORKS ARE GOING TO GO FAR. GET PLENTY OF REST BECAUSE I AM PATIENTLY AWAITING FOR THE NEXT NOVEL(KING’S PARADISE) TO APPEAR ON THE SEEN. THANKS FOR MENTIONING MY NAME IN THE DEDICATION. I AM FOREVER A FAN.

    STEPHANIE

  11. S Dunn says:

    I LOVED LOVED LOVED the end. I can’t believe Sterling went all the way with oral pleasure & didn’t get sick. I won’t spoil it for others who didn’t read it yet , but I was NOT disappointed. Your tireless efforts paid off. I’ve passed the word with friends& family & they will be tuning in Way To Go Gurl!!! I can’t wait for King’s Paradise. I’ve been waiting since I read Mysterious Mr Black. Im not sure how much longer I can wait. THAT WILL SELL LIKE HOT CAKES… (Hint $4-$5 easy)…;-)

  16. sylvia says:

    I finally got my hands on the book and read it to the end. I loved it to the very end. It was a great read. Seriously someone was upset with you because they couldn’t get the book for free anymore. Don’t even sweat it, your hard work should be rewarded and it’s not you are being unreasonable. Anyway happy holidays and a very creative, full of good publishing deals new year

  17. Melvennia says:

    Okay, i have just finished the book and my question is – When will the next one be out? I loved the book and can’t wait to see how Blair comes out in theis. I think she deserves some happiness, even if she has to create her own.
