HUSH and its Series have come a long way, and never had I thought my books would be worth anything – according to all the negative reviews the series has garnished over the last five years – until I recently learned that The HUSH Series is currently being sold for over $1,100.
Q: So, should I now consider this a bragging right?
A: Hell yeah!
But seriously. . .who would pay a $1,000 for a book? Not me. . .unless it`s rare and a collectible and I knew I`d make back the money further down the road. I mean, would Jackie Collin’s first ever print book The World is Full of Married Men with original jacket of Author – to which I own, btw – qualify?
So, HUSH fans if you`re interested in buying a print copy of The HUSH Series and don`t care to pay a grand but rather $50 with an Autograph, then you`re more than welcome to contact me @ AboutHUSH@outlook.com.
So, yes! I may not be Amazon but your Reviews on the books you purchase via HUSH`s eBook Store are just as important because it gives me insight on what you the Reader/and or you, HUSH`s #1 Fan, think about the books – good or bad.
And Good or Bad, I want to read them as they inspire me to either improve the story line or push forward into something bigger and better.
So, when you get the chance – and if it`s not too much trouble – come back and leave a Review which you can do HERE!
Thank You! And now back to your regularly scheduled reading!
As a huge fan of Roseanne, I was gravely disappointed. I was expecting the re-boot to have shed some light on what has happened over the years, not start off as if the show was in its 2nd or 3rd season. I mean, there were some issues that I felt were addressed to soon when it should have been a gradual progress thus leaving the audience – a.k.a me – wishing to see more instead of debating whether I should tune in next week or the week after that.
I felt the brother’s David & Mark’s absence not a great move considering that they made Roseanne entertaining and thought provoking.
I didn’t like that the creator(s) made Dan & Roseanne look like a couple of pill-popping-geriatric-co-dependents. And c’mon! They`re not that fucking old!
Now Becky wanting to be a surrogate mother. . .seriously? And what was with Sarah Chalke`s character wanting to eat Becky’s placenta? Is that really what the audience wants to hear? And another thing, what happened to her pregnancy with Mark? Also, how did Mark supposedly die? God, I hope the creator(s) put a spin on that one. . .Say like an Eddie & The Cruisers type of twist. But that is probably wishful thinking!
So, what became of Jackie`s baby boy Andy? And where did Jerry Garcia Conner end up other than on some boat? I`m sure there will be some answers.
Now onto Darlene and her two kids. . .What`s with the amazon looking daughter and non-gender disclosed son? That just got under my skin. I mean, I can understand a bit of slapstick comedy but seriously, putting a 9 year-old boy in a skirt (or was it a kilt?) or in wardrobe that no 9 year-old realistic kid would be caught dead in? There has to be some boundaries. And I understand that as parents we want to encourage our kids to freely express themselves but how far should that freedom of expression go? I honestly don’t know about the LGBT community, but I’m sure they even have boundaries for their kids and their adoptive kids – to me it was just a slap in the face.
Now as far as Darlene is concerned. . .I do like her. But damn! She needs to get out of all that darkness and be a little upbeat especially as a parent. But unfortunately, Darlene as a parent just doesn’t suit her or Becky. I thought Jackie being a parent was obnoxious but Darlene and Becky both take the cake. But back to Darlene. . .her son is named “Mark“ so I will assume that she did end up with Mark (Becky`s Mark; read bottom asterisk). Also, there was reference made about Darlene`s “partner“ with Darlene denying that she is gay. Now there`s a bit of drama. I could very well hear Gary Marshall`s famous words: At last! Drama! which is, btw, taken from the movie Soapdish with Robert Downey Jr.
As for DJ, he should have gotten a little more exposure, remained single and dated. He`s another that just doesn’t fit the “parent“ criteria. I mean, the last I saw of DJ he was quite dark in his sense of humor and he had a sort of bad boy image going on which I [personally] thought suited him well.
So, what happened to The Lanford Lunch Box? *(or was that also fictitious?)
What happened to Roseanne & Jackie`s quirky mother, Bev?
What happened to Fred. . .Jackie`s ex-hubby and Andy`s father? *(or was that fictitious, too?)
*Honestly, I still get confused over Roseanne’s last episode, and for those who had never seen the last episode. . .spoiler alert: The Conner’s never won the lottery. Becky was actually dating David and not Mark. Darlene was actually dating Mark and not David – fucking confusing, I know! Jackie turned out to be a lesbian. Bev was actually a heterosexual feminist. Dan never had the affair with his mother`s nurse he instead ended up dying from a heart attack. Leon & his husband weren`t actually a couple as they had just met in Roseanne`s “real life“. And Nancy, I forgot if she was real or not? And lastly, Roseanne did write a book about her family.
All in all, I just felt like the back-to-back episodes were all over the place – kind of like the way one of my unhappy readers said about HUSHED – and I can only hope that they find some order before the show faces getting canned.
Author`s note: This review was just my opinion in about a few million, so I don`t expect for anyone to agree or like. And just like my Reviewers, I am entitled to my opinion, right? Fucking right. I am!
It`s 2018. . .and now it`s time to update the bulletin of the Good, the Bad & the Ugly from some of those Wonderful & Ghastly reviews HUSH and it`s counterparts tend to receive periodically. So without further ado. . .Offensive masks on, please!
from The DiamonD:
from HUSH: Missing Pieces
however this is just a good take without any of the impact of the previous instalments . So sadly disappointing.
Just to mention there were spelling mistakes throughout including the wrong spelling if compliment/complement!!
from The DiamonD: BLOOD
This second book makes a for an easier read. The author must have gotten spell check and decided to leave the readers to use our imagination instead of drowning us in unnecessary details.
The premise of the story is great. Too bad it wasn’t written by a decent author. ***Save yourself a few hours you won’t get back..imagine the worst that could happen to children in the hands of pedophiles…now you know the story.***
Now about the story I did not care for the fact that 2 gay for pay guys go from hustlers to ruthless gang members in a blink of an eye just not very believable Or that it appears Jane will become another statistic living the life she tried so hard to get out of!
I know it`s been awhile since I posted the Good, the Bad and the Ugly of a Review. So with that said the following review comes courtesy of Goodreads. Though the review is fairly new, there were some key points that I felt needed to be addressed which follow the review.
Just finished this long awaited book. The entire series has been incredible and this is a decent continuation of the series. BUT, the plots within plots are starting to get a bit too complicated. DiamonD/Jain doesn’t even show up until half of the book is done! And the idea that a supposed major crime syndicate Boss would just wander off without any protection and end up in Vegas where half of the underworld there already knows her and starts pulling tricks to “get by” is just a little far fetched, IMO. And know it turns out that she has had two kids when none of the other books talk about this at all is just a bit over the top. Anyway, despite the flaws and complications, the series is still very good. Just don’t try jumping into the middle of this series or you will likely be completely lost! I await the release of The DiamonD: Hollywood. Hope it comes out soon. (less)
The delay in bringing Jane aka “DiamonD“ into the story was in part of continuing from where the story left off in HUSH: Missing Pieces.
Readers need to keep in mind that Jane is naïve – she`s barely nineteen – so there`s still a bit of recklessness residing within her. So, with that in mind, she still needs to make mistakes in order to understand them. If I gave Jane a brain to think and breathe like an experienced or semi-experienced adult rather than the young adult or teen that she is, I think that would be a bit, if not, completely “far-fetched“. In many ways, Jane is maturing but it`s a slow and painful and annoying process so I do apologize; but she is getting there. Just MO.
When Jane arrives in Vegas she`s completely under the radar as The DiamonD hadn`t exactly made their presence known [in Vegas] as of yet. The only reason it may appear that other Vegas bosses know of Jane`s existence is because of her brief encounter with another boss she met in The DiamonD who was posing the question of her existence there oratorically. Jane however does leave Vegas before others are made aware of her.
Jane isn`t exactly a Boss yet, as she still considers herself a Partner. But she does consider herself a “Pimp“.
From HUSH thru The DiamonD: BLOOD Jane has been trying to escape/leave the Life as she doesn`t want to have anything to do with it. She only became a part of it to rescue her sister and hurt her father for the deception. Other than that, she couldn`t have cared less. But because she is the daughter of a crime boss her independence is very uncertain, almost – if not – inevitable. But the question still remains and will pose: Will Jane ever be free?
Yes, Jane has two kids (or does she?). Now there`s a fucking twist! HaHa! Need to wait on that one.
Thank you, James, for your much appreciated review!

Dear Readers & Fans of HUSH:
So, how do I put this delicately. . .Hmm?
I screwed up!
As many of you know, The DiamonD: BLOOD is set for release tomorrow 8/25/2017, and unfortunately the manuscript/book that is set to release will be “unPublished” due to a last minute revision error that forced me to miss the time frame allowed for manuscript revisions, content updates and everything else book related.
For those who pre`Ordered The DiamonD: BLOOD, my apologies for the inconvenience.
Other than that, I do hope you enjoy The DiamonD: BLOOD. I will be posting additional information regarding the Series/Saga as time progresses so please feel free to check back at your convenience.

As another Saga ends, so begins Another …
And this time it isn’t for the pursuit of justice served with a dish of revenge but for war. . .over blood.
Wholly betrayed by the deception of her step-sister Bree and deceived by the recent discovery of her father’s past, Jane – now DiamonD – persuasively walks away from her life in an attempt to start a whole new one; leaving behind her would-be estranged husband and The DiamonD to finish seizing control of her father’s L.A. business.
But things instead start to go awry for DiamonD when she ends up in Las Vegas and involuntarily falls back into a life of prostitution thus bringing about a whole new wave of problems beginning with a pregnancy, a boyish Hustler from her past, and a multi-million dollar contract on her head.
Wishing to not get those of her DiamonD family involved, particularly her husband and their recently born son, DiamonD avoids Hollywood and instead heads to Canada until she discovers she’s been followed thus forcing her with no choice but to head back to Hollywood.
But the second DiamonD arrives the real war with family begins, beginning with a domino effect of reunions and lies and ending with Bree abducting DiamonD’s dark secret, Lola Jayne – revenge for DiamonD disowning her – that will ultimately leave DiamonD swearing a vow of vengeance and these words resonating in Bree’s ears: “Now it’s WAR, bitch!”
I find it amusing when I get mistaken for a “perve“.
If you`re going to take the time to insult me, can you at least take the time to spell “perv“ right?
