Miscellaneous Monday: Cover shoots, Fan re-reads, and Interview



JA Huss

Series: 321 Spinoff

Published on June 24, 2015

Sasha Cherlin died the night she let Nick Tate walk out on her for a life of crime. Her very essence was destroyed when they broke their promise to one another.
Nick Tate made his choice with her future in mind. He loved Sasha enough to know that leaving her behind was the only way to keep her safe.
Special Agent Jax Barlow understands the bond of love and he plans to use it to get justice. Nick and Sasha will do anything to rewrite their past. He’s counting on that to bring them down.
Wasted Lust is a 321 spin-off, full-length, romantic suspense filled with lies, secrets, and the power of redemption by the New York Times bestselling author, JA Huss.
Last week’s Friday Night Freebie
I feel like I have no blogging time so I’m starting two new things. Well, one is a restart. I used to do the Friday Night Freebie over at my book blog, New Adult Addiction, every week without fail. The Friday Night Freebie almost always features a signed book by well-known authors in the new adult and contemporary romance genres. It was a lot of fun but I got really busy last fall and so I just let it go. Last Friday I brought it back (it’s over now, so don’t go try to enter). And I have enough signed books in my possession to keep it going for several months.
Last week I featured a signed copy from the brand new bestseller from CD Reiss, Shuttergirl. This week I’m gonna feature Silver bastard by Joanna Wylde. She was signing at the Hard Rock Tulsa Author Event with me, and so I picked up a book for the FNF. Love, love, love her covers! So if you want to win a signed copy of this book (and some swag), look for the Friday Night Freebie post on my Facebook Author page, New Adult Addition Blog, or my fan group, Shrike Bikes.
This week’s Friday Night Freebie!


OFF-TOPIC TANGENT: Some of my Street Tamers are doing a re-read of the entire Rook & Ronin and Dirty, Dark, and Deadly series’ leading up to the Wasted Lust (Sasha book) release. You can join them and get in on the action here in Shrike Bikes.
The other thing I’m going to try and do every week is a little post about my upcoming week. I don’t get on this blog much and I’d like to change that. New Adult Addiction is a book blog, so I don’t post a lot of personal stuff over there. So I’d like to start posting more personal things here. I usually put stuff up on Facebook, but those posts are so transient, it’s not a good way to catalog things. Blogs are much easier to keep track of, and each post has a link.
And all this shit together will be lumped under the label Miscellaneous Monday (with an identifying title added in).
So this week my number one priority is to finish Wasted Lust (the Sasha book and 321 spin-off) and send it to my editor next Sunday night. The cover reveal is happening on June 10th and the book releases on June 24th.
Tomorrow – May 26, I’m doing an interview with The Self-publishing Podcast peeps about marketing, reviews, and street teams.
The last thing I’m doing this week is having my first custom photoshoot for the Wasted Lust cover. It’s going to feature my trainer, James, from my gym. I cannot wait to boss him around! So that happens Friday. (I will take pictures!)
The book release is only a few short weeks away and my assistant Jana and I will be sending out an ARC sign-up list. We are looking for folks who loved reading 321, the Dirty, Dark, and Deadly series, and Meet Me In The Dark to review the Sasha book, so if that sounds like you and you would like to get an advanced release copy in exchange for an honest review ON RELEASE DAY, please sign up for my newsletter and keep a lookout in your inbox for the sign-up form.
I’ll end the first Happy Miscellaneous Monday with a small teaser for Wasted Lust…


I. Am. A success.
“I moved on,” I tell Agent Jax. But I know it’s a lie. And he knows it’s a lie. Because even though I’m the toughest girl you will ever meet—one picture of one man can take me back to the moment I realized I lost.
I lost everything.
And no amount of money. Not new mothers and fathers, not new friends and schools, or college degrees, or even the simple satisfaction that comes from my grad school research, can make up for it. None of that can fix the fact that I lost.
My father is dead. Mother dead. Grandparents dead. Home gone. And Nick—the one thing I held onto after they took my childhood away on Christmas Eve—left me behind.
I want my past back.
And just a glimmer of the future I was promised and denied, just one more conversation with Nick, would be worth it for me.

About JA Huss

JA Huss never wanted to be a writer and she still dreams of that elusive career as an astronaut. She originally went to school to become an equine veterinarian but soon figured out they keep horrible hours and decided to go to grad school instead. That Ph.D wasn’t all it was cracked up to be (and she really sucked at the whole scientist thing), so she dropped out and got a M.S. in forensic toxicology just to get the whole thing over with as soon as possible.

After graduation she got a job with the state of Colorado as their one and only hog farm inspector and spent her days wandering the Eastern Plains shooting the shit with farmers. After a few years of that, she got bored. And since she was a homeschool mom and actually does love science, she decided to write science textbooks and make online classes for other homeschool moms. She wrote more than two hundred of those workbooks and was the number one publisher at the online homeschool store many times, but eventually she covered every science topic she could think of and ran out of shit to say.

So in 2012 she decided to write fiction instead. That year she released her first three books and started a career that would make her a New York Times bestseller and land her on the USA Today Bestseller’s List eighteen times in the next three years. Her books have sold millions of copies all over the world, the audio version of her semi-autobiographical book, Eighteen, was nominated for an Audie award in 2016, and her audiobook Mr. Perfect was nominated for a Voice Arts Award in 2017. Johnathan McClain is her first (and only) writing partner and even though they are worlds apart in just about every way imaginable, it works.

She lives on a ranch in Central Colorado with her family.
