New cover for #EmperorsAddiction & other updates for #HeartOfDetroit #sneakreaders


I’ve listened to your voices sense and changed the cover. Yes, it’s not as pretty, but…  It’s darker, but this is an intermittent book between the bigger books (King’s Paradise & Stealing Innocence III:Lethal Heart)

Plus, it better represents the female character shade. Yes, you were right. I’m not afraid to admit I was wrong and thank you so much for the correction.

This book is more for the readers than for anything. The ones that have been following the Heart family and need to know…

What happens next?

It’s only available for pre-order through Smashwords and Barnes and Nobles. I haven’t seen it distributed anywhere else yet.

(If you see it in your eBook store, please put the link in the comments.)

I just uploaded the cover so give it a chance to cycle through to all channels.

I honestly know a lot of readers won’t grasp Emperor’s Addiction until they’ve at least read SOME of the Heart of Detroit Series, which is why I’ve connected this book to them.

So if you try not to get confused here’s the scenario:

Emperor’s Addiction will be broken up into two books. The second will be called Emperor’s Heart.

Emperor’s Addiction and Emperor’s Heart will be a part of the Heart of Detroit Series. A line of books that consist of some of The Heart of Detroit Cousins:

Currently the line has: 

Diamonds in The Rough
Silent Lynx
Cabin Fever

  1. Ooh this really nice. Job well done. Lol. I love the new cover. I think it’s kind of what we were thinking and looking for. Atleast i was. 🙂 It’s sexy and mysterious. I’m excited to start this serious I know it’s going to be great. Take ur time, keep up the great reads and be blessed Mrs Hubbard. 🙂

  2. Hi Ms. Sylvia,

    Now, that is the Ms. Sylvia I know. Just looking at the cover makes me want to jump right in and start reading. I love, love, love what you did to the new cover. Just looking at it, I can imagine all kinds of things. After reading the synopsis, I know I want to read it. I read a little of it when you had it on your site, and I was hooked than. I love your novels and can’t wait for this journey to continue. Congrats to you Ms. Sylvia, your silver lining is here.

  3. I Love this cover. MUCH BETTER then the previous draft. These colors blend better & the yellow pops off the page. (Red would be a bit more seductive in the words or the the picture). This picture really represents an addiction for many & is alluring. I love it. Just bring that addiction out a bit more highlighting that picture in some way if possible. Look at it makes me want to read. I know the story behind it will be even better.

    1. A lining in silver with the black & red writing may work too. If you’re done this will work. Its more to what I’ve envisioned instead of that green & yellow.

      1. Oh My it gets even steamier. I LOVE HOW YOU THINK GURL. My mouth is watering for MORE. Oct. 2nd can’t come fast enough. Great job with the sample. YOU ARE MY ADDICTION Ms. Hubbard. Love ya girl. ♥
