#WIP #LiveStory coming January 2014. Subscribe for updates, share, retweet and enjoy… #Betrayed #CityBoysSeries #amreading

I’ve been off the horse for a long while.

A very long while and I know you guys have been clamouring for a live story.

This one’s a little different delivery though.

Instead of delivery it straight on the site, I’m going to deliver it in pieces.

Now you can wait for each piece ot be delivered or read as each one is published.

Here’s the first piece:

Betrayed

A City Boys Series

by Sylva Hubbard

Jordyn finds out her past isn’t the truth and that she’s been living a lie. Doing the only thing that will keep her sanity, she leaves her family and strikes out on her own, trying to live an honest life.

Yet, when her family seeks revenge and she is joined in the fight to get it, she finds, sometimes one has to leave the past where it should stay – buried.

As more and more secrets come to light, Jordyn is sucked back into her old world, where getting everything means losing everything.

Note From Author:

This book is a live book. Meaning, it’s written and released. Editing is a dry run and mostly you’re getting the story itself. Each release will be .99 cents and will contain at least 10,000 words, except the first part which is free. That’s just to get you hooked.

The Cytee Boys is a family of men who work on the bad side of the law, but only for the money and is a preliminary book for King’s Paradise and Stealing Innocence III: Lethal Heart. There will also be a character named Bishop James who will be introduced in my first teen book coming out way later than anything else but that’s another story.

I will tell you now, no Nevada is not getting with Kansas Cytee because I know that’s going to be asked.

Any discussion questions can be asked at my blog, https://sylviahubbard.com/blog. There will be post for each part. Answer your questions about the story on any post with the name of the book please. That helps me and also helps other readers who might be asking the same question.

Each “Book” consist of a different sibling story, but each part to the books will consist of several chapter of that book.

The key to understand the orders of each book, will be watching for each “part.” I might get lazy and write B1-P3, which means book one, part three. As always I’ll be open for content and I hope to open up 2014 as a year where I’ll get a lot more writing done.

2013 was a rough year for me and I want to thank all my Sneaker Readers for their support for all my literary endeavors. You guys were promoting me even when I was too mentally exhausted to promote myself.

I really appreciate and love the fact that you did this for me.

betrayed

And now the question is asked, when is the next book coming out.

I’m going to produce a part every week. (Unless life gets in the way and we should be done by February or March.)

Like I said, the first part is free. The ones after that will be .99 cents. I’ll make them thick enough to make it worth your dollar.

Thank you in advance for your support.

You can subscribe to this post below after making a comment or you can make sure you are subscribed to this website because a post will be released about the book.

Oh, btw, can you tell me if you like the cover? It’s only a temp cover so I didn’t want to just… well, just tell me what you think. (biting my lip in nervousness.)

 

 

2 amazing reader reviews for #Lovelikethis #amreading

I’ve been overly overjoyed with the success of downloads on Love Like This.

Now even though it’s free, I still find it fascinating how people have taken this book and just shared it all over the world.

Love Like This was a playful novel for me, but if this is what gets readers to read, then you bet your sweet butt, i think I’m going to jump on the psuedo -family relations romance boat like a mofo.

(That last statement was kinda confusing even to me, but i just left it there and maybe it’ll make sense in a couple of year.)

A lot of people don’t ask me about Red. I guess because he’s kind of … well, scary, but he’s trying to be a better person.

So if you haven’t checked out this book, I invite you in the world of Red Heart and let me know what you think.

“Are you Sylvia Hubbard?” An Author’s experience of meeting a real reading fan. #SneakReaders

Today I met a fan.

Not a book reader, or someone who knows the founder of Motown Writers Network.

She was an actual fan.

Her name’s Ravena

(I’m gonna use her name in my next new book. I like that one.)

She was awesome! She was the type of person that had experienced my books and not just read them.

It was delightful and I just had to share.

(Kill me now for not taking a selfie, which has been my behind the brain reminder.)

If I see Ravena again, I will, but I wanted to say to all the fans of my books, I wish I could just chew the fat with you in person… each and everyone of you.

It was really delightful and I just wanted to share.

Reading-is-life-reading-31313014-640-436

So if you’re out and about and you see me, demand we take a selfie!

Thank you ! And thank you Ravena and all my fans!

Men You Love To Hate Part II: Where Do I Start? #ReaderQuestion #amreading #SneakReader

Hello and welcome back to The Literary World of Sylvia Hubbard.

I receive questions all day long and if you’ve sent me some, I’m sorry I haven’t “tackled” yours yet. I read them, it’s just hard to really sit down and formulate how to answer them without giving away a good story that’s in the works.

Dear Sylvia

First off, I love your books. I started reading your books about six years ago when I was pregnant with my third child and I fell in love from the first page. Once I was done, I went to the next and the next. I wanted them all and I couldn’t read fast enough.

Now that I’ve read them all, I see you’ve weaved characters through your books that appears in other books and I want to go back and read them in some type of order.

Other than the Heart Family chart, I’m trying to read by family and I need you to help me. Where do I start?

 

Good Question:

My answer… I don’t know.

My brain works like a movie player that’s constantly running stories that tie in with all the characters’ lives. As you see Armando’s sometimes getting back from his “long vacation” or he’s about t leave on a long vacation, or he suddenly up and disappeared in the middle of the book and sent in his partner to finish up his business.

So I really couldn’t answer your question to what order to read the books UNLESS the book specifically states Book One or Series One (As in the case of Dark Façade or The Black Family Series.) Now the But if you’re reading a book and you come across

I’ve put together some of the men in my books to give you an idea where everyone goes.

The Black Family Series

 

Ethan                    James

Xavier                   Axel                       Phelix

 

The Bellini Family (Stone lineage, included)

  • Chart coming soon

 

The Heart Family

 

The Lott Brothers

  • Tyrone & Jerome

 

Upcoming Series

The City Boys (Series coming soon w/some introduced in Mistaken Identity III & Stealing Innocence III: The Ravishment)

  • Kansas
  • Austin
  • Lincoln & Trenton (twins)
  • Phoenix (sister)
  • Jackson

 

A new chart for the Heart Family is coming soon but again I can’t post until right before Stealing Innocence III due to the fact I have some highly intelligent readers and they’ll figure out the plot before I write the book.

Now I know I’m missing the boys from Mistaken Identity III also, but I’ll get to that when I finish up that book.

If you guys have more to add, please feel free to correct me in the comments or add what you feel is necessary.

Check out the bookstore for the books you don’t have. Collect them all because you never know what you’re missing.
