Author's Notes

#DarkFacade Book Four will soon be available @NookBN and iBooks #ReaderQuestion #amreading



It was brought to my attention book four of Dark Facade was not available on Nook.

The reader said:

I luuuuuvvvvv The Dark Facade Series. I picked it up and couldn’t put it down. I was hiding in the bathroom at my job with my nook reading as fast as I could so I wouldn’t get in trouble and then I realized Book four is missing. While I see it on Amazon (booo) and Smashwords, I can find it anywhere else and I’d love to add it to my collection.

She wrote me this last month.

I got another email just last week from another reader pretty much asking the same thing. (She didn’t mention she took her reading device to the bathroom, although I hope that reader sends me a selfie because I really would like to see that one.)

I don’t know why I didn’t upload to Smashwords the re-edited copy of Dark Facade Book Four and actually until I received that first email, I hadn’t realized I didn’t do it.

Although it could have been during the time I was getting the emails about the “bad scene” in book two.

Yeah, if you read the book you know what I mean, but no spoilers. And I was getting a lot of flack over it.



I do hope to make Dark Facade a paperback by the end of the year.

Sigh… so much to do, so little time.

Make sure you follow me on Twitter or Facebook  to see when the books are going to be ready. Or if you find it before me, Please do me a favor and tag me on twitter or comment below.

Thanks !

If you are new to the livestory concept, then I guess I will explain what Author Notes are.

author’s notes in a livestory of The Literary World of Sylvia Hubbard are usually dreded updates from the author where I tell you bad news.

Such as it is with this one.

The planned release of the book for Friday has been moved to Sunday.

It was fricking cold!

Not just outside, but in my house.

It all started at the beginning of the week when two pipes burst and then the temps dropped to -40 in Detroit.

I was huddled next to the electric heater trying to type up the story occassionally stopping to warm up the tips of my fingers which had started to freeze.

I pressed through a first draft and now I’m going over it.


DTE can’t come fix the blower on the furnance until Monday.

Until then it’s huddle against the electric heater as I slowly work through giving Jackson a purpose.

Also, through the middle of the first part, I changed the male characters name from Austin to Jackson.

So if you guys see any Austins in the story, PLEASE LET ME KNOW.

And sometimes my brain thought Melissa and Megan were the same thing. So if you see a mix up, PLEASE LET ME KNOW.

I appreciate your support.

The book is actually selling better than my other books this month.

Which is crazy, but hey, I ain’t complaining.

If you didn’t know, The second book is due to be release on Jan 15th.

If you were a pre-reader (and there were over a hundred pre-readers) you should have put you review somewhere online.

I’m sad to say, over 92% of the pre-readers didn’t do what they were suppose to do. Well, according to Amazon with on SEVEN reviews.

That sucks because the point of being a pre-reader was to help generate press about the book.

I’m going to send a note to all to all the pre-readers to remind them about doing a review.

If you’ve done one. THANK YOU!

If it’s at another place like Goodreads or B&N or even Apple, please leave a link in the comments below so I may link to it or even go read it.

I want to thank you guys for all your pushing and throwing to other readers.

I’ve picked up fans in 2013, which I can never say thank you enough.

But I can get you to fight over something…

A paperback copy of His Substitute Wife… My Sister.

In Two days, I’ll be holding a real live copy in my hand and after I review it and authograph it personally, I’m going to give it away to the a reader.

A reader who has done a review.

So hit me up on the socials with a link, leave a comment with a link to show me you’ve done your review and put it out there for the world to see.

I’ll be picking names next Friday, (After the 15th) so get out there, read the book and do the review!

Now to say this isn’t a gift, I should share, I haven’t sent out an authograph copy of anything in YEARS!

I can’t wait to see the fighting.

Onward I go back to typing! Staying warm, drinking the ginger, honey, garlic tea. Got my blankets (although I feel I need more) and getting the gloves out to keep the tips of my fingers warm.


Author’s Note: I just realized I’ve released 5Books in 4 Months #SylLit #SneakReaders



Girl_writes_3I’m saying that to myself because that’s a lot of work.

I was going through the books on Smashwords to see what I released in 2012.

In 2012, I released 5 books

We should also include the The Heart of Detroit Compilation as well.

But as a surmised 2013 and it only being February, I realized Since November, I’ve released FIVE BOOKS

If I go by my usual quota for the year (five books) for 2013, I only have three more books to really produce, but I have a feeling, this will be a monumental year.

If I’m looking at my brain right, I think I should finish five more books this year.

I just gotta sit my butt down and do them.


I love when my #sneakreaders boast about how many of my books they’ve gotten.

I’m trying to make the transition from to Smashwords for all my electronic work, except my exclusives on Kindle which are

Currently, I have over 24 books available on my Smashwords site. Have you collected them all?

I’m going to make another book exclusive on Amazon. I was thinking the Little Bit of Sin Series (which I’m breaking up into three books) or Eve’s Deception.

what do u think of cover? thx @23_exchange

Still trying to decide.

As I write this post, I’m leaning towards Eve’s Deception. The series seem to be enjoyed by too many readers with too many different devices.

Oh BTW, I want to thank the B&N readers who’ve left comments on Dark Facade (and of course all the other books).

I know I don’t give you guys enough shout outs but I do thank you.

I can’t see my reviews in the iTunes stores, but if anyone can shoot them too me, please do.

Also, if you do post a review ANYWHERE please tag me my page on FB or Twitter (@sylviahubbard1). I’d appreciate that.

Okay, off the finish book Three of Dark Facade. It’s getting juicy and SPOILER ALERT: This might go into a fourth quarter.

If you’re looking for ConSensual, I’ve taken it down for paperback publishing. I’ll keep you information about that endeavor. I submitted it to an anthology and I will be adding a new part to it very soon. (That’s my 2014 endeavor because y’all ain’t getting no eighth book out of me this year… I don’t think.)

Your comments and reviews inspire me to write more and your book purchases and telling others about me give me the time to write more.

My last two blog posts have gotten like the most comments I think I’ve ever seen. And I love the way the readers engage with each other.

A recent comment about my writing really made me cheese hard:

I am well aware of the emotional roller coaster Sylvia sends you on. I have been hooked on her writing ever since stumbling upon her first book in 2010. She has now single handedly become my favorite author. Why, you say??? Because she has no boundaries. She doesn’t mind exploring the darker side of sensuality and even love. Her books aren’t all rose petals and heart candy. She will give you that but often times through a knife or gun in there too, LOL. Ok, I’m going back to work Mrskt20

I’m still trying to figure out if it’s a compliment or not but I love what she had to say!
