If you`re an avid reader/fan of The HUSH Series then you remember it was in Book #4 `round Chapter 16-17 (it`s still early so my mind is sketchy) when DiamonD was perusing Boys Town in search of Baby Ho Hustlers who she figured possessed knowledge of Felix & Geena`s whereabouts. But it was when DiamonD was crossing the parking lot of a gas station when she was confronted by Cher, a dyke with a taper fade for a haircut and a persistence that was trying DiamonD`s patience, when out of nowhere Shane Diamond and Alec Pedraza walked into Cher and DiamonD’s conversation had DiamonD and Shane became “Shane & DiamonD“ – it was both hustler-and-ho-love-at-first-sight.
But in spite of their relationship – which eventually flourished into a marriage in Book #6 – having been both tumultuous and unarguably sexually addicting, had they managed to maintain their sanity and their marriage and remain “Shane & DiamonD“. . .but all that is about to change.
So now here`s a hint for all you DiamonD addictives: Do you recall when Shane and DiamonD were in the throes of divorce? [head nods]. And do you remember what DiamonD did with those divorce papers after she and Shane reconciled? [head nods, some head scratching, forehead scrunching] Let me remind you: she taped them back together then handed them back to Stella, The Lawyer to destroy. Well, my fellow DiamonD`ers, those taped-up/supposedly now “destroyed“ divorce papers are about to find their way back into The DiamonD once more. Only they`re not going to fall into the hands of DiamonD but of Shane`s. And you all know what that means considering Shane`s temper right? It means, all-DiamonD-hell is about to break loose.
So, having stated that with a monkey wrench in hand and a bitch`wicked grin because that`s how my mind works, Shane may not need the forces of DiamonD or the backing of Lucado’s Empirian`s to take The DiamonD as originally planned.
So now the question here remains: could this bit of fictionality be a twist-of-fate, revenge, greed? Or could this be where it all ends between Shane & DiamonD forever? Whatever the outcome, it`s going to be one hell of a ride as Ho vs. Pimp vs. Hustler clash in a game of position and power in the epic conclusion of The DiamonD: EMPIRE, Part II.
Though I`d like to fend that both DiamonD & her EMPIREare on a fictional vacay from EMPIRE, Part II, it`s actually I, their Author, who`s on a “vacay“ – which is code for “break“.
So, yup. Guilty. I am on a DiamonD Break.
[Oh, damn! I hear hearts breaking, nostrils flaring, manicured nails readying to attack]
But honestly, there is no need to fret or try to wring my neck through this post as it is only temporary. In fact, my pen (or PC) is still hard at work but on a different project: a new novel unrelated to The HUSH Series which you can view HERE.
At present, I am trying to obtain Representation – which is also code for “Agent“ – but, and like many, many Agents have stipulated via their sites & rejections “is a very subjective business“. But regardless, I remain optimistic!
