Patricia Kiyono’s guest author at Four Foxes, One Hound made a switch from writing spicy romances to Inspirational Romance. It’s quite a change, and Sylvia Hubbard of Literary World of Sylvia Hubbard explains how she managed it:
Sylvia Hubbard tells us how she got started in fiction (thanks Mom!) and explains that, when she got the bug, she didn’t stop writing and eventually started using her skills to earn a living. She’s now been a bestselling author for 20+ years. Sylvia writes Suspense Romance and explains the rules and boundaries of this hybrid genre. The trick is to weave the key elements of each in a way that keeps the reader on the edge of their seat. “I make people fall in love and I kill somebody.” She sets her stories in her hometown of Detroit and she describes the city as a character in her books. It’s one of America’s top murder cities, perfect for her suspenseful stories! Sylvia talks me through her Black Family series. “Crazy needs love too.” The men in her books all have hidden facets. For example, one has multiple personality disorder, another has food issues. But everyone wants and deserves love. Hubbard delves into why these men are the way they are, they all have complex backstories. “Love is really complicated… it’s easy to get to the door, but opening the door and walking through is harder…” Not only does Sylvia Hubbard write fiction, she also writes non-fiction and blogs. She explains how she manages to write so prolifically and says she’s “a pantster with a drip of plotter.” She’s always on the lookout for interesting people and flaws and likens her process to the movie Glass. Then she makes sure she goes through the 3Rs. “When you make plans, God laughs. Sometimes the life you plan is not the life you need.” We discuss how you don’t have to have everything worked out before you start writing, you can iron out the wrinkles later. “You can’t give yourself an excuse to fail.” We discuss how she manages her time and keeps her sense of fun! She says she wakes up with the attitude that she cannot fail. Sylvia emphasises how important it is to tell your loved ones that writing means a lot to you. If they want you to be happy, they need to let you write. Everything can be done in 10 minutes. You’ve just got to figure out how to do it in that time. We delve into how Sylvia started the Motown Writers Network and, because she was sharing such valuable information, the network grew quickly and people couldn’t get enough. Sylvia’s top advice is to not give up, no matter how hard it is. That’s where success lives.
Take a Look at the Motown Writer’s Group Here!
Find out how Sylvia Hubbard leveraged Kinde Vella to sell more books through Kindle Direct Publishing. While most authors aren’t sure if the Kindle Vella program is right for their needs, Sylvia found a better use for it – marketing. While the guidelines state you can’t share links or take people off the platform, there are no rules that limit how you use this serial story format. Discover what Sylvia has done to date, how to she approaches an episode release, and what she sees happening in 2022 with this new platform.
Here’s how to get to this prolific writer’s stunning stuff! And look for the second video with Sylvia coming in a day or two where she talks about founding the Motown Writers Group!! I’m joining up today and I hope you all do too! This woman is a huge community resource for Vella writers and she’s as giving a person as was ever put on this earth!!!
Sylvia Hubbard had two top faved serials on Kindle Vella. She also has years of experience gathering readers, learning exactly who they are and where they will be, and promoting to them who she is and what she can offer. She’s not just crafting serials for Kindle Vella and making ebooks for Amazon, she’s creating a universe in her fiction, and a passionate world of readers. She has a lot to teach about finding readers on Vella, and with your books, so take out a pen and paper, and prepare to learn from a master.

I spoke at the Mount Clemens conference first week of Feb 2010, and I found this blog post about my workshop. I was quite surprise:
| At-Wysher – A different kind of writers’ conference
Another speaker, urban romance writer Sylvia Hubbard, had a lot to share about marketing one’s book online and e-publishing. A single mom, she was a dynamo of enthusiastic information about blog-tours, sites that sell e-books, …

Using Blogs, eBooks, and Online Social Networking to get THE WORD Out
One of the most interesting panels I came across during the 2010 Allied Media Conference in Detroit was called “Electronic Books: Creating Your Own and Preparing for a Paperless Society.” This discussion was put together by Detroit author Sylvia Hubbard of the Motown Writers Network and the AA Electronic Literary Network.
I hadn’t intended to go to her session but was strongly encouraged to do so. I’m so glad I did. Hubbard’s described the low barrier to entry into the e-book world and the fact that you can actually make money if you can attract a decent following. A lot of people might think that e-books are limited to established authors with book deals in place and publishers looking to expand into new markets. It was eye-opening to discover this isn’t the case — just like with music, you can do amazing things yourself.
