Detroit native, Sylvia Hubbard, a single mother of three, has worked tirelessly to promote and encourage emerging writers in Michigan. She independently published her first romance novel in 2000 and has continued to write in that genre, sometimes venturing into other sub-genres. Always urban and contemporary styled, her writing is enjoyed all over the world. She has published 8 paperbacks and over 30 e-books.
The same year she published, Ms Hubbard also created Motown Writers Network to fill the lack of education and networking for Michigan authors online and offline. By 2004, she was frustrated that all the literary conferences had moved too far away from the city and co-created The Essence of Motown Literary Jam Conference held only in the City of Detroit annually.
In addition to romance writing, Hubbard has been featured at various conferences and workshops all over the United States and Canada, where she has taught authors how to sell their books on the Internet. She also published Internet Marketing for Writers & Businesses as a resource for those unable to attend her workshops. In the upcoming year, she will be featured in several anthologies and plans to publish additional e-books.

The cover along with the quote on the front was pretty intriguing. It read sometimes fighting back is not worth the fight, especially when love is involved. Sounds good right?! Well, let me tell you a little about it. In the beginning of the story we are introduced to Lauren, Jezica, and Stefanie. The 3 women have been “friends” since high school. And I use the word ‘friend’ loosely, as its more of a parasitic relationship where both Lauren and Jezica benefit from Stefanie’s intelligence and money while Stefanie gets nothing in return. Stefanie is just about fed up with Lauren and Jezica when she decides to step outside of her character and do something that is totally unexpected. Just as it is getting to the good part, the story ended! I went back to see if maybe I only downloaded a teaser or maybe there was a part 2. I had not. The blurb made no mention of this being a teaser or a series. So, I emailed the author. Ms Hubbard was prompt in responding to my email. She informed me that the remainder of this story will be available in February. I will definitely keep my eye out for the rest of this e-book as the beginning reeled me in!
To be continued…
