This page is to help you understand when there’s a live story in progress.
Back in 2006, Sylvia was prompted to write her first erotic novel, Mistaken Identity as a writer’s prompt in a yahoo group.
The short story soon turned into a wonderful sensual novelette that readers couldn’t get enough of.
She had to move it to the blog, because the owner of the group said there was too many posts on one subject. That’s when she opened this blog to gather the readers who openly commented as the story progressed.
When the story was through, the readers demanded more and more!
Live Stories posted to the blog were: Mistaken Identity, Baby Doll, BOOM! BOOM! BOOM!, Red Heart, Dark Facade, Deceptive Nights, Teach Me To Love, Tanner’s Devil, Secrets, Lies & Family Ties Sin’s Iniquity, Sex Weed, His Substitute Wife…My Sister, Sexstasy.
(all of these can now be found either in paperback or eBook at the author’s website).
NEW READERS PLEASE READ: Sylvia Hubbard produces these romance suspense/ sensual noir stories mostly from the top of her head. She tries to post at least three times a week, but there is a warning that she can’t be bought for the ending (unless you’re a big publisher and just want the story) and do not call her phone in the middle of the night begging for the rest of the story. There is interaction throughout the story between the writer and readers (meaning she’ll answer any misunderstandings in the story), but no threats to tie her to the computer have worked. (She’s been doing this for the past two years almost and only have had to take out two restraining orders, LOL.)
One of her readers and an author, Suprina Frazier, helped her explained the benefits of live blogging:
1. You get feedback about who hates what character and why. That’s gotta be helpful when deciding to do spin-off books.
2. You get a glimpse into which storylines are going to be the most popular. Are more people pheening for interracial stories? May/December romances? Knowing the answers to those questions had help with decision-making about new books. (Remember how one of your (tall?) readers pleasantly complained about your heroines always being so short? lol. I loved that honestly. It definitely made me add a few inches and even some extra pounds to my own heroines to better represent real people.)
3. Finally, you get to see how your readers interact with one another. This gives you clues as to which of your other books they might like and just haven’t read yet.
We hope to see you on the blog! And welcome.

I just finished reading “Protected: The Mysterious Mr. Black”. Part 1-10. The story has gotten better as it progressed. I don’t like the horrible things that has happened to Jen, but I enjoy reading the story. Jen should press charges against Jesse. Jesse and the others should go to jail or be killed off. I’m looking forward to the next installment.
Well thanks Edan. and I will take your “suggestions” into consideration. LOL.
I’m feeling a little Heart or should I say… King Heart should handle this matter.

Are you going to finish A Little Bit of Sin? I am just dying to know the ending between Colin and Syn. Please Please Please finish the story….
Syn is finished. Waiting for a publisher
Thanks for finishing it Sylvia. Can’t wait to buy it when it is published. Unfortunately where I live Wal-Mart doesn’t carry any of your books that are published. ( I live the 4th largest city in the U.S.) So, I’ll either have to get them via e-book or buy them online. Also, still waiting for you to send me the code to buy Cabin Fever. The one that was in facebook didn’t work. And the passwords to Double Playing and Maniac Neighbor. You see, I can’t stop reading your stories. I emailed on of your stories to my cousin, maybe getting another fan in the near future. 🙂
When will the hero be a regular guy who works and isn’t a millionaire or in the rich and famous catergory?
there is a work in progress called Strangers To Love throughout the site, Jill
Dear Sylvia we met back in 09 at the Literary Jam. Thank you for all your efforts. I’ve recently relocated from the D to Battle Creek. I see an immediate need for a writers organization here. I imagine I’m the best writer in BC given my experience and newly made connections at the Literary Jam. I’ve recently completed a novel about a black reporter in China sucked into a plot to overthrow the Chinese government during the Olympics o 08. Hope to employ your services as an editor and consultant. Also have short stories coming. Thanks again.
Keep up the good work, Sylvia.
