Sex Weed - Chapter Thirty-Six

OMG!!!! OMG!!!!! OMG!!!!!

I've had a very interesting morning and was able to start a new chapter. Yes. You're getting two chapters in one day. The post was very long for Chapter 35 and I see when I post full chapters you guys are more content.

This part was ... I can't even explain. You know there's always a calm before the storm, but what popped out was really really interesting. Let me know what you think....

Now commenting to Carmel:

Carmel: I'd love to know where you think the story is going. That's interesting because I have no idea where it's going, LOL. I can give you another choice of two other books. Just email me offloop and let me know with an address and by the time the story is over with, I'll email the book to you for corrections in word and then once I upload the book again, I'll send you a paper copy of this one.

enjoy ....

Sex Weed - Chapter 35

Monday is a busy day as always. I think next time I post a story, I'm going to have it as Tuesday, Thursday and Friday because it's not so stressful.

Hi Lola D. Long time no hear from and thanks for letting me know you're around and catching up on everything.

Somethings not right. You ever have that feeling that things are not what they seem and you should follow you gut feelings but things seem to be going good and you don't. Well, I got that after I posted this chapter. I knew something wasn't right and Melissa is just ignoring her gut.

Another notification has been sent out for new readers and if you're just joining us, you can click on the Sex Weed book to download from Chapter one to thirty one or just click on this:

As we draw to a close I need the following from you:

  • Once you're done with Sex Weed, please post your review of the story in my guestbook on mywebsite at:
  • Pass the word to everyone to download the book
I also am looking for a general grammatical and continuity checker for this story so if you would like to volunteer, please let me know and I'll reward you with a paperback copy of SexWeed, Mistaken Identity and Sex, Lies & Family.

I'm going to try to type up another chapter today, but these dog gone people on the telephone are really making it difficult. I'm going to have to just listen to my Brian McNight and immerse myself into getting calm.

as usual, enjoy....

After reading this part you're going to ask me why does she still have to go save Penelope?

Why can't she just ignore this?

Reed wouldn't dare come after her knowing she's with Dyson.

Why doesn't she let Dyson know her fears?

To answer all this would take and tell too much of the story. Keep reading and I hope to get all these answers for you.

Sex Weed - Chapter 34.4

Okay, people, this is the last post and I hope you enjoy it. There is a lot to read because this is a lot of explaining.

You know I'm not big on thick paragraphs, but she had a lot to say.

Melissa has had a total breakdown.

Time is winding down and you guys know we're reaching the chapter 40 mark.

If you are new to this bit, I should let you know. I am a 40 chapter girl. even if I write the book off the top of myhead, I've hardly ever gone past 40 chapters. Right now we're at 81K words and that's a lot, but I think this one will be about a good 100K.

That's a full length novel this time. I wasn't trying to write so much. I really was trying to hit this and quit this, but it's turning out really great. (yes, I'm patting myself on the back.)

I forgot to charge my mp3 player last night so it's going on dead and i'm getting depressed cause I needs my music in order to type so i can't do chapter 35 at all. I'm not hearing Brian McNight and unless someone wants to fly him out and let him sing by my cubicle that's the only way I can get through that one.

Well, just let me know if I got it all out and it all made sense. I do suggest you read the entire chapter again just to make sure you got everything

have a great weekend and let's pray i get my car back out the shop this weekend.

praying praying praying!

.... and yes, Dyson is still an ass after all this.

The evolution of romance in the book

I just posted at author, Donna Hill's Behind the Book blog about my evolution of romance with Dyson and Melissa.

Just thought you'd like to stop in and read it. (I quoted one of your comments which I adored to ever lasting death.)

Thanks a lot for all your input yesterday!

You know Carmel, I really think you're going to die the way you type. I can almost hear your voice screaming at me ordering me to finish.

Unfortunately, my boss said I had to keep working and I couldn't stop to finish up writing, LOL.

you're funny.

Just for you Carmel. I posted one more....

Okay, I'll see you all Friday and if you have any more questions that i need to answer (other than who's Daniel's parentage) hit me in the comments and I'll get to them. I don't know if I'll chat or not and I won't know until tomorrow. Might, might not.

Might move the chat to my website because it's easier to handle.

Sex Weed - Chapter 33

I've been trying to get through the Harry Potter book. DO NOT SPOIL IT FOR ME!!!

I'm on the part where they are at the Malfoy house and I almost stood up on the bus today and screamed, "SOMEONE'S GOTTA HELP HARRY POTTER!!!" Yes, I know I would have been looked at strange, but I get a kick out of being a reader so much and I miss that when I write.

True, I feel my characters and as I write action scenes I'm in there with them sweating and panting and fighting, but I never get that thrill that readers get as they journey along with my characters, because even though I'm writing one scene I'm still trying to figure out how the hell am I going to get them out all this muck I've put them in.

Anyhoo, someone asked offline: When do you write Sylvia? I checked your website and saw you do a lot of stuff. A lot! Plus you're a mother with three little ones. I have one girl and going to school right now plus working full time and I'm a faithful reader of yours and I'm amazed at the stuff I read everyday from you. So when do you write?

Answer: All the durn time. Even as I sit here posting this blog, in the back of my mind I'm trying to figure out how to help Melissa try to save Penelope and how to get Reed off her ass. And if I do try to kill Reed will it be Melissa killing him or someoen else? Should I employ the Heart family? Lethal would really boggle the hell out of Melissa about now, or should Dyson handle Reed. I think in then end Reed and Dyson are going to have a face off and if I should jeopardize Melissa's life so much that she could lose the baby she's carrying. But it''ll serve her right for what she's got to do... oh i'm telling to much.

Okay let me shut up before i just lay it out right now. You'd like that wouldn't ya!

I write all the time!

This is going good - well if I must say so myself.

Okay, I might post another one but I've been trying to crack that durn Harry Potter book and I'm just on page 200 and it's bothering me that I can't read faster. And i thought my words were too durn big.

Sex Weed - Chapter 31.2

As is my wont, I totally changed the story (well just this part.) Something else happened and then I festered over the weekend just lulling this in my head and I said, you know what, I want Dana to get some more and I wanted to really throw Melissa in a loop.


I did bring Tyrone in the fray

And if you didn't read Mistaken Identity, please quit emailing me offline asking me about Dana, Jerome and Tyrone. You gotta read the story to understand all that's happening.(you know who you are)

And in response to the other email note, LOL, yeah I'm nasty if that's the case. (I won't even tell you what they said, but you get the gist - winking one eye).

Migraines are back as usual, but hey that's like the same song with different lyrics and it all ends the same way.

Happy Monday and enjoy...

Sex Weed - Readers Questions/Comments Answered

Africa: Why was there cocaine in Rachel s body. Could Reed have had anything to do with that
Sylvia: Could be. What do you think? Thanks for seeing that.

Carmel Beauty: I think that reed killed rachel. but who was his sister didn't know about that and he slept with reed mom

Sylvia: This was said a few chapters ago about the dirty things that he had done when he was speaking with Melissa.

2Anonymous readers, Suprina, Deja & Tori: In earlier chapter you indicate that P. and M. switched places when Reed snuck in the window to have a little fun in bed in the past. Then I believe you indicated that Dyson also snuck into the room a couple of times (I think?). I was wondering who really is Daniel's mother and who is really the father. I'm thinking if Dyson snuck in then he could be the father. Which women is really married to Reed - P. or M.? Can you also give more of a back story maybe from Reed's and P./M's perspective about when they actually got married. I am assuming P. has been living as Reed's 'wife' all this time.

Sylvia: Gotta break this one down because some of this I'll answer, some I won't - just because I don't want to reveal the story at all. Yes, I'm keeping the secret of who is daniel's father and mother for a little longer. Gotta keep you guessing, but its a whooper. Figured that one out when I was doing some research. Now I will give you a story spoileer, because maybe I need to go back and give you that clue, Melissa really is (or was) married to Reed, which is why Lorenzo was able to facilitate the divorce. You're about to get the back story when Grae corners Melissa in a couple of chapters. And yes, P has been living as Reed's wife all this time.

Will be posting soon!

took you a couple of hours back to resolve some confusion.

helping you get some understanding of what's going on and then going on from Dyson's perspective.

After this post, please post all questions that confuse you so I can go through and find out if I've answered them and then make sure that I rear the story to give you the answers you need.

I might have missed something which is why this feedback is so important.

Tomorrow is the chat and I might schedule it for earlier in the morning depending on what i'm dong. (11am would be good for me)

Sex Weed - Chapter 28.2

I usually don't post on Tuesday's but I liked that 400 mark and I had a bunch of newbies join the yahoogroup too.


If you need to catch up, you can go to:

It goes up to Chapter 21 and then you can catch the rest on the blog.

I'll be updating that as well. Since it is on Yahoo and everyone and their momma can't download it at one time, please be patient.

Otherwise you can go to the and take a book til its ready to download.


Reader Question: Do you incorporate other people from other stories in your free stories to make us buy the books? If so, I don't think that's fair cause then i'm curious and it's difficult for me to buy all the books you mention. I just started reading sex weed and as I go through the notes and things I see you have characters from three different books. how am i supposed to get to them?

Author response: uh duh, yeah! Plus, that's what makes it all so fun for me and of course you as the reader as you go into secondary stories that underline some of the characters. plus, i'm a lazy writer and coming up with new characters that i know you'll love wouldbe a waste of time when I already have characters that you love and they can do the job of enhancing the present stories.

I'd love to give each and every one of the stories floating around in my head away for free and trust me, there are a million of them out there and I think I'm going to live a long time because it's going to take me a hundred years to write all of them. LOL. But I do have to make a living. I've got three mouths to feed, a car to get, a house that I would love to live in (so I can put a lock on my bedroom door and have a room just for a DVD collection) and a foot massager that's calling my name.

So yes, i do need you to buy books because it does help with the operational costs of doing the live ones for free.

In order for me to give away stories, my readers either donate, tell a friend (and don't forget it's tuesday so do your duty) and/or buy a book. These are all methods to help me become a better writer and support my writing endeavor.

Sex Weed - Chapter 28

readers questions why bring grae in?

if you know the twins (jerome and tyrone) then you understand they have a close circle of friends. Grae was coming up anyway becasue her husband zeke is good friends with the twins from college.

I involved her as well in the past too because I didn't feel like more characters coming in that you guys couldn't get familiar with right away.

it just so happens her book is going national in august. that's all, but she's a part of the twin story.

you'd have meet her sooner or later

Yes, I was supposed to post this Friday. I didn't mean to leave you in a cliffhanger and I'd gladly buy the wig you need if you've ripped all your hair out.

This part stressed me out really bad because I had to do the Reed thing. I really really hate him.

That's why this post is so long, plus when i read it this morning, I decided to add some more to get some things out the way to get closer to where I want to be.

Monday mornings are the usual busiest and I still have twenty things to do as usual.

On the personal side, I'm still carless, but my sister - the beautiful one (that what she calls herself when I introduce her to people) - found me this great mechanic and he's so cute. He can work on my car ANYDAY! even if it ain't broke.

Gawd, I need to find a permanent beau! LOL

I'm just glad he fixed the durn door, (I was doing the ghetto get in the passenger side thing) but now he needs to fix the fuel pump and find out why it's leaking oil. I'll get back to him about the heater coil and getting the fender fixed from the idiot hitting me.

Oh yeah, I do like the new Grae a lot too. She's cool and she cares a lot.

Why hasn't anyone asked about Dyson's first wife?

I just realized I posted the titles wrong for the last two post. It should have been 26.2 and 26.3 (I've since corrected that.)

Reader's Offline Questions:
Did Reed Kill Penelope? I was reading and I know now reed's got the divorce papers, but what happened? come on sylvia, you're ruining my day! Just tell me now so I can stop tearing out my hair!

Author's Response:
You'll know by chapter 28.

Reader's Offline Question:
Like the yahoo site........but isn't Sin's Iniquity 'IR' just saying?

Author's Response:
It is. I don't think I've changed the covers on that site yet and I need to. It's supposed to be SEx Weed cover anyhoo. I'll put it on my things to do for this weekend. Thank you.

Reader's Offline Question & comment:
Wasn't Grae in another book? her name sounds familiar and i remember reading that name from somewhere, but i haven't been able to buy all your books, which i hope to do soon. I got my friend to buy Stealing Innocence and then borrowed it from her because i couldn't afford it. i know that's wrong and i would love to support you so much sylvia cause you have so much talent. my friend wants to get stealing Innocence 2 and I've been telling her how she should. Maybe I'll help her go half on it.

Author's Response:
The fact that you got your friend to buy the book was pretty neat and even though I do need the money and I shouldn't openingly encourage book sharing, hell I can't complain. I give stories away for free so I'm hurting myself more than you are by sharing right? Anyhoo, Grae is in the newly titled Secrets, Lies & Family Ties (formerly titled Sweet Reunion). She's Ezekiel's girl and another book Jerome and Tyrone are in.

BTW: I do check the chat (which is up all the time) so if you have questions you want to post there, you can as well. I'll answer them in the chat option of this way as well.

I'll talk more later

To Chat or Not to Chat - That is a question

Tomorrow is usually chat day for us, but I would like to know if you really really want it.

I'd like to schedule it for 1pm when I know I can do it well and be a great mood.

So if you're interested reply and even if you're not, reply. Invite some friends give me some hard questions (nothing mathematical) and let's just have fun.

I'll be also asking you about Sweet Reunion and anything you have to ask me about that.

As i get ready for the world release, I'm nervous about reactions to everything and I want to hear from you what you thought of the story if you're a new reader.

So.... I hope to see you on the blog and remember is on the right hand side of the the page after the Amazon wishlist - hint hint.

Sex Weed - Chapter 26.2

Answering Readers questions and comments:

Who's the bad person?
That's a matter of opionion

The story is dragging... I'm getting bored (two different people but I put them together)

So's my life and I'm trying to get it out as fast as possible. I'm sorry about the dragging and boredom but good lawd I can't be a die hard movie every day. LOL. I'm going through some things off line - illness, kids (a daughter hitting puberty and a boy who thinks being mean to his sisters is fun), no car, my printer broken, one client whose book is about to be published and another client who can't understand conversational dialogue, plus a friend who just found underwear in her husband's pants. (Reality is so much stranger than fiction). There's always dragging points in the book and you know this is off the top of my head and I just need to get back on the path of getting to story out. This is just the hard part of labor - the painfully boring part - and I'll be getting to the good part soon. I'm just setting you up for massive heart attacks.

Any more questions?

I'm offing someone and then preparing for a love scene. It's really difficult.

P.S. I really don't like Reed. He's insanely evil and very difficult to get out. I actually get goosebumps when I have to write Reed in a scene. Is that crazy?

Still carless and so much to do.

Raise your hand if you saw Transformers and that crazy preview before it which i thought was called "Bad Robot." (but found out later it was the production company.

Went to the NAACP conference and got a ton of promotional items. The kids thought they were in Disney world without the rides. LOL. My baby girl called me today at work and asked if we could go back and get some more promotional mirrors that they were giving away free. (She picked up like twenty off a table and I didn't find out about it until we got home and I emptied out her backpack. Lawd da'help!)

Sex Weed - Chapter 24

Reader Question:

Hi Sylvia, love sex weed. this is the first time i ever tried to read a blog like this and I can say i'm so upset that I hadn't got the opportunity to read more live stories from you. as i was going back from old storys i'm envious of the comments made cause it really look like the people reading it were having a good time. I started sex weed late (referred by a friend) but I was wondering when I tried to go back and read something that the posting had disappeared. What happened? and as I'm reading sometimes you say chapter and sometime you say part. Also, since you'll be going on hiatus after sex weed which books would you recommend that i read? I've already read stealing innocence 1&2 and I just purchased sweet reunion and I'm going back to get mistaken identity.

Author response:
thank you for enjoying sex weed. after a while i do erase the posts so when i get to the end, i don't have that much work to do, although blogger's made it easier to erase. about the post and chapters, I'm confused! They are supposed to be chapters. Now if I had a book to recommend I would say Stone's Revenge.

happy monday!!!
