SCROLL DOWN FOR THE $150 GIVEAWAY!
First of all – Happy New Year to all of you! I know I’m almost a month late in my whole Happy New Year thing, but hey, that’s pretty much how I roll unless it comes to book release dates! I hope your 2017 was good. Mine was pretty exciting actually. But I’m not gonna spend a whole lot of time on the past when so many things are coming in the future.
For starters – I released the entire Turning Series in 2017. Taking Turns, Turning Back, and His Turn. Which was a whole lot of sexy to write in one year, and that was only the beginning. In between those books I also completed the Anarchy Series. I started this story line back in December 2015 with Anarchy Found, so finishing it off with Anarchy Missing and Anarchy Chained was a long time coming. After that I released the long-awaited FIVE book! Yes, little baby Five from Rook & Ronin Series! He’s also one of the Misters, so I capped my year off with a Mister Happily Ever After called, aptly, Mr & Mrs.
(Click the picture to go buy one you missed on Amazon!)
Those were all my regular books, but I also released Mr. Mysterious, Mr. Match, Taking, Turns, Turning Back, His Turn, Anarchy Missing, and Anarchy Chained on AUDIOBOOK. (Five will be releasing on Audio on January 30th, if you’re wondering about that. And Mr & Mrs. will follow shortly after.)
In addition to that I RE-named the Dirty, Dark, and Deadly Series to THE COMPANY and RE-released it to celebrate the audiobook for the Sasha, James, and Harper story line (which released in October). It also got a new cover and the ebooks for DDD were taken down. You can still get the paperbacks, BTW. Just not the ebooks.
I hit the USA Today Bestseller’s list an additional five times with all three Turning books, a sale I did on Rook & Ronin (Surprise to me!), and Five. So… pretty fuckin’ cool year for bestseller stuff. The total number of times I’ve been a USA Today Bestseller is now EIGHTEEN!
In addition to that I acquired a new writing partner – TV actor and writer, Johnathan McClain – who is also called Tad Branson in the audiobook world (because he’s a sexy-voice narrator), and that’s how we came to meet. He first narrated the Mr. Romantic audio, then Wasted Lust, then my publisher gave him The Company. After he did The Company he approached me about possibly turning it into a TV series, so we wrote a pilot. We did that pretty quick over the summer and pretty soon were were pitching it to people he knew over at MGM. Well, MGM signed on to be our producing partners in December, so right now we’re in the process of closing that deal and moving forward to find a buyer.
In between all that script-writing and TV Pilot Pitching, Johnathan and I also became book writing partners. We have a website called Huss/McClain and you should check it out when you have time.
I also bought a ranch, renovated the house, and built a barn for my annoying donkeys. So pretty fuckin’ crazy year for me!
This is where all the fun stuff starts (as if all that other stuff wasn’t fun, right?) 😉
I just released my first book of the year, Total Exposure, this week. This is the first of four books about Jordan’s Game (a spin-off of The Turning Series) and all the books are standalone. So you can jump in at any time. (Links below for books one and two).
From NYT Bestselling Author, JA Huss, comes a new sexy standalone in the Jordan's Game series. Evangeline's life is dark and lonely. She'll do anything to change that. Anything. Even play a game with a stranger she's never met. What starts out as "therapy" soon turns into a passionate anonymous love affair. Her blindfold is like a security blanket and his touch is what lights a fire inside her. More info →
Right now I’m in the process of changing the covers and updating files for ALL the Rook & Ronin books because the FIVE-YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF TRAGIC is coming up in May and they all needed a fresh makeover. This includes Tragic, Manic, Panic, Slack, Ford, Bomb, Guns, Spencer, Meet Me In The Dark, Wasted Lust, and Happily Ever After. Look for more information and the cover reveals around the first of February. Each of these books will have a brand new End Of Book Shit.
I also finished writing TWO BOOKS with Johnathan. We’re writing a four-book series called Original Sin. It’s set in Vegas and it’s sexy, and suspenseful, and funny because Mr. McClain is a super-funny writer (everyone says so) and I’m thrilled about this whole new adventure. The first one is called Sin With Me and will release on March 6th. (Pre-order linked below)
Two accomplished writers come together to create unforgettable sexy romance. JA Huss is the New York Times bestselling author of 321 and has been on the USA Today bestsellers list eighteen times. Johnathan McClain is a veteran actor and writer whose work, either performed or written, is probably airing on at least one of the channels on your television right now. More info →
The second one is also finished, but we haven’t released the title or cover yet, so you’ll have to stay tuned to check that out. And we’re working on book three right now. In fact, as soon as I finish this blog post, I gotta get busy writing words! These books are all full length and will release three weeks apart so you’ll get the whole shebang in just three months. We wanted to make a debut splash in this new venture, so yeah, we are. 😉 Four full-length books in three months! AND, for the first time ever, I will release an audiobook with the ebook and paperback. 🙂 Fuckin’ Johnathan keeps me on top of shit. So if you’re an audio fan, good news for you!
We will have an ARC sign-up for Sin With Me very soon. Like in the next two weeks, so if you’re a reviewer and would like to get an advance copy of our first book together, make sure you follow us on one of our social sites or blogs to get that info.
WE WILL HAVE A SIGNED BOOK ORDER FORM up around the same time. So if you’d like to get a copy of Sin With Me signed by BOTH of us, just another reason to follow!
After that, book two of Jordan’s Game Series will release. This one is called The Pleasure of Panic (Pre-order up and links above and cover reveal giveaway here – there’s still time to enter, so click over there). That will release on April 10th.
By that time Johnathan and I will be wrapping up the Original Sin Series and getting ready to release our second series over the summer. We have seven books planned for 2018, in addition to my four, so I have eleven books total scheduled for this year. Something for everyone, I assure you!
In between all that I have a trip scheduled to LA in about two weeks to see Johnathan, meet our MGM producing partners, and do my first ever photoshoot for our author pictures. Super exciting for me. After that I’m in London for a week to sign books at the RARE 18 London’s Calling Author Event, so if you’re across the pond, I hope to see you there. In April I will be at the Boston TalkBooks Event to sign, in July I will be at Colleen Hoover & The Bookworm Box’s Event, Book Bonanza, to sign in Denver, in August I will be in San Francisco (with Johnathan) for the Golden Gate Author Event to sign, and in September Johnathan and I will be at the Romancing the Coast Author Event in Surfer’s Paradise Australia to meet all the fans Down Under.
So pretty exciting year. And that’s just the stuff I can talk about. I have a pretty big announcement coming in a couple weeks, but I can’t share yet. It’s cool and might involve a trip to New York in June. Whew, as if I needed another trip! I have a feeling I will be writing a lot on the road this year.
I will have an “ALL BOOKS ORDER FORM” up in July or August. So if you want your pick of any of my books signed you will find it over the summer.
I’ll leave you with a donkey pic (because everyone loves a donkey) and another Happy New Year. I hope you have a great 2018 and I hope you stick around (or come see me at a signing!) to check out all the cool shit that’s happening.
Until then… Thanks for stopping by and I’ll see you in the next book.
