TIER AND JUNCO: A Long and Torturous Love Story

TIER AND JUNCO: A Long and Torturous Love Story

Happy Valentine’s Day If you haven’t read CLUTCH yet – it’s a beautiful beginning to a long and torturous love story between Tier and Junco…you can find it here. The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,And sorry I could not travel bothAnd be one traveler, long I stoodAnd looked down one as far as I couldTo where it bent in the undergrowth;Then took the other, as just as fair,And having perhaps the better claim,Because it was grassy and wanted wear;Though as for that the passing thereHad worn them really about the same,And both that morning equally layIn leaves no step had trodden black.Oh, I kept the first for another day!Yet knowing how way leads on to way,I doubted if I should ever come back.I shall be telling this with a sighSomewhere ages and ages hence:Two roads diverged in a wood, and I-I took… Read more »

The Sexy Dudes of BadAssJunco

The Sexy Dudes of BadAssJunco

JUNCO SAYS: There’s been a lot of talk around the blogosphere from the guys about who is my favorite dude, and instead of letting them fight it out in public, I’m gonna set the record straight. First let me introduce them to ya, so ya all know who’s who: Front and center we have Tier. Tier is a main character in CLUTCH, the first book in my series I Am Just Junco. I’m not so sure about his motives, but I certainly like to look at him. He’s tall, like a foot taller than me, with dark black hair that curls just the slightest bit as it falls over his blazing green eyes. And they do blaze, that’s for real. The glow in them is like a warm Sunday afternoon on the prairie. (Sorry, I get a little swoony just mentioning him.) Then there’s the wings. Magnificent charcoal-gray wings that… Read more »

How We Hate the Insta-Love, Smart-Ass, Cliché Romance

How We Hate the Insta-Love, Smart-Ass, Cliché Romance

Did it start with Twilight? Or was that just the first time we noticed it on such a big scale? I’ve seen a lot of hate over the insta-love in the reviews of other authors. I can relate to the frustrated reviewers because it’s hard to respect the insta-love some characters seem to have for one another these days. Ditto for pointless smart-ass dialog. My book series, I Am Just Junco, is not a romance, but there is a romantic sub-plot between the two main characters (Junco and Tier). When I set out to develop their relationship I only had three hard and fast rules: No insta-love No smart-ass comments unless the other character deserved it No pointless arguing just for the sake of cute one-liners In fact I went out of my way to make Tier careful – believe me when I tell you Junco deserves a little extra… Read more »

{Blog Tour} Guest Post & Giveaway: I Am Just Junco Series by J.A. Huss

{Blog Tour} Guest Post & Giveaway: I Am Just Junco Series by J.A. Huss

{Blog Tour} Guest Post & Giveaway: I Am Just Junco Series by J.A. Huss My Favorite High-Tech Gadgets in Clutch Part of the fun of reading science fiction is learning about new tech items that the author dreamed up. Sometimes they go overboard and everything in the everyday world of the characters is something new and cool. I hate that. It makes things feel fake and I like the tech in SF novels to be unobtrusive, only bringing it out when you need it. My favorite author, Richard K. Morgan, did this in a big way in Altered Carbon with the sentient hotel called The Hendrix. A sentient hotel! It played a small role in the overall story, but it was significant for the ending. I loved The Hendrix because it had badass weapons system built into its lobby and saved Kovacs butt in one particular scene. Plus, it was… Read more »

New Adult Books by J.A. Huss

 I Am Just Junco Series CLUTCH – In 2152 the avian race is on Earth looking for something stolen from them decades ago – their genetics.  At the center of the search lies the Rural Republic; a small backwards farming country with high hopes of military domination and a penchant for illegal bioengineering. 19 year old Junco Coot is the daughter of the Rural Republic’s ranking commander. She’s the most foul-mouthed, wildly unpredictable and ruthless sniper the Rural Republic has ever trained.  But when her father’s death sparks a trip into forbidden places, she triggers events that will change everything she knows to be true. As an elite avian military officer, Tier’s mission is to destroy the bioengineering projects, kill Commander Coot’s daughter, and return home immediately. There’s just one problem. Junco isn’t who she claims to be. With no one to trust, not even herself, Junco must confront the… Read more »
