12 Days of Giveaways – Day 1


The winner of THE DIRTY ONES Prize is: Shelly Peterson

Please check your PMs on Facebook!



I hope you all had a very happy Thanksgiving. And if you’re not in the US, I hope you had a lovely 4th Thursday in November. I haven’t been up to much. My fucking stove broke like two weeks ago and even though I ordered one (with an air fryer!!) it won’t be delivered until December 18th. So that’s fun. lol We got Black Eyed Pea takeout for Thanksgiving! Whatever. Nothing can stress me out this year. I’m over all of it. I just go with the flow now.

I bought a new microwave too. I tend to use things even if they kinda break because where I live, change is a hassle. This microwave has had a broken handle for like two and a half years. It was time. But getting new appliances when you’re on liquid propane gas isn’t as straight forward as it is when you just have regular natural gas. Home Depot and Lowe’s won’t install it. At least here in CO, you have to call someone special because they have to put in different valves or some shit. And I live in the middle of nowhere, so not a lot of options when it comes to installation people. Everything is harder out here. Even though Black Forest, Colorado is only like 25 minutes down the highway, they won’t come here. Same for the Castle Rock people who are 25 minutes up the highway. So I usually have to call someone who is in one of the small-small towns in the area – those guys don’t mind driving. But they are very busy all the time. So unless it’s an emergency, you have to wait and wait and wait for them to fit you in. Anyway. That’s my kitchen appliance update. haha.

I stopped writing the book I’m on to do some marketing. I feel like it’s impossible to do both. Because when I’m writing, I write 6000 words a day. The reward center in my brain likes to see word count go up and this is what keeps me motivated. The problem is, when I’m done–even though it’s only like noon–I don’t want to think about marketing and business stuff. lol So I’m usually doing nothing but writing or nothing but business and marketing stuff. And I HAVE to do marketing and business stuff right now because I have 125 orders to get in the mail (This Thursday! About 80% of the signed-book orders will be in the mail!) Plus I have to get my Christmas cards out. AND I wanted to do a 12 DAYS OF GIVEAWAYS this year. 

It’s been a shitty year in a lot of ways. I really can’t complain because aside from the untimely demise of my stove, no major tragedies have befallen me. But it’s been stressful. So I figured if ever there was a year begging for a 12 Days of Giveaways, it’s 2020.


OK, that’s enough about my rural writer problems… lol.

I have a bunch of things to fill you in on today so I figured I’d write a blog post and do a newsletter instead of just posting it up in the fan group.

First of all the really big news – the last HAREM STATION book, UNCROSSED, now has a cover reveal date and a release date.


The first book was a free novella called STAR CROSSED.

The cover reveal will happen on December 10th and the release day will happen on January 26th. The audiobook will be released with the ebook and the narrators  are Shane East and Christian Fox. I’m so fucking excited to listen to this one. I don’t have the files yet but hopefully I will get them soon and I’ll post some teasers for you guys.

This book took a while. The last Harem Station book released in October of 2019. So it’s been OVER A YEAR. Um.. Sorry about that. This is the seventh and last book in the series so I had a lot of story to wrap up. It’s on the longer side, so if you like long books, bonus for you. And this little side project was super fun and the KC Cross pen name is far from over. I will be releasing an erotic PARANORMAL ROMANCE later in the year. Maybe more than one. We’ll see how things shake out.

So here are all the important details for UNCROSSED.

The blurb is below and if you’re a book blogger or bookstagrammer, please consider signing up for the



and the


BOTH are being hosted by XPRESSO TOURS.

Princess Corla was supposed to be my soulmate.

But we were star crossed.
Two ships passing in the dark. Meant to be together, but never able to be together.
At least that’s what I thought.
But it turns out—my life is a lie, evil forces are out to get us, Harem Station is spinning chaos, and the soulmate bond won’t protect us.
Sounds pretty bad, right?
But here’s the best part.
I can change it.
I can change all of it.
If I can just find a way to get myself uncrossed.

Uncrossed is the last book in the Harem Station Series and features a man chasing his star-crossed soulmate through time, a bazillion enemies at the gate, an entire station in chaos, and an explosive ending that proves, once and for all, that love WINS in the end.



BOOTY HUNTER WILL BE FREE SOONISH. 🙂 I just did the price-matching yesterday, so hopefully it will go free on Amazon soon. But it’s FREE at Apple, KOBO, and NOOK RIGHT NOW!



(^^^Should be free very soon)




Audio isn’t free, but you can find it on Apple and Audible.

Narration by Teddy Hamilton and Savannah Peachwood.

Twenty years before Serpint brought Queen Corla home to Harem Station she met Crux for the very first time. They were destined to be soul mates but could never be together. All they had was just one night.

Thanks to all of you who entered the big Bossy Luke Giveaway and helped me share the cover reveal and pre-order news!

I don’t really remember the first year I did the 12 Days of Giveaways. I know I skipped a year or two in there, but I think I started them in 2013 maybe? And I often host other authors for this. Most of the time I do. I’ve never done one by myself like this I don’t think. But this year I got started so late and I just wasn’t organized enough to get other authors involved. So all the giveaways are mine. And they are all in that pic up top! This year they are all a combination of signed books, and self-care, and gift cards, and fun goodies!

The first day of giveaways is for THE DIRTY ONES. And this book IS FREE ON AMAZON TODAY! I just put it in Kindle Unlimited too, so if you find this blog post late and miss the free days, you can always pick it up free in KU.

    1. Another hello from Massachusetts! Hope you can enjoy your new appliances when you get them. Hoping you have a wonderful holiday season & that 2021 is better than 2020.

    2. I’ve had the Dirty Ones on Kindle for far too long. Now that I’ve heard the voice for audiobook, I now must read and listen at the same time! 😉

    3. Julia,
      You were the first “dark” romance author I ever read and you quickly became my favorite. Still to this day, I compare other authors to you. Reading your books is my vacation/zen/happy place all rolled into one!!

    4. Thanks for the chance, I haven’t had a chance to read one of your books yet..if I win I will have it my face lol. I have way too many books

  1. Hi! Just so you know, the handle on my fridge was broken for like eight months before I fixed it, so I can truly appreciate your appliance dilemmas. Be well!

  2. Hey, Julie!! Sending you and your family lots of wishes for a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! And I’m dying to know how you like that new stove with the air fryer, the hubby and I were looking at it too, but we just got a new stove 2 years ago, so it will be a while. Love you!

  3. Hi there Julie. I hope your having a great day. It was ~30 degrees last night, but we get NO snow which is sad! I wish we’d get at least a light dusting. But Oh well.

  4. Hey Julie. I just wanted to wish you a merry Christmas and a happy new year. And I can’t wait for all your new series coming next year, because your a talented author. Today we just got snow, where I live. Hopefully it’s like this when it’s actually Christmas.

  5. Wishing you and your family a magical holiday season and New Year! Thank you for all your hard work.. I appreciate it more than you know🥰

  6. Hello!! I’m falling in love with Booty Hunter, again!! I read it the first time and am listening to it now… it’s so freaking good!!

  7. Hope you have a great holiday season, I am doing my best too as well. Your books help keep out the noise of reality, a perfect way to escape when I need to.

  8. Your books have made a dark 2020 brighter … congratulations on a big year of books and I hope you have a new stove by Christmas…. PS air fryers rock 💕

  9. Hi Julie! I can’t wait for Uncrossed! We got a new stove and microwave last year – nothing fancy but they match and all 4 burners work! Love all of your giveaways- thanks for the chance!

  10. Hi Julie! You seriously need a secretary. I volunteer. 😉 Only catch is I have to move in with you in Colorado. 😀 I can’t cook which is good since you have no stove but I can microwave with the best of them lol

  11. Hey Girl! I know your pain when you have broken appliances but I am like you .. not letting it get me down … nope not today Satan !!

  12. Wishing you and yours a very Happy Holiday season. Thank you for being such an amazing author that I am able to escape reality from time to time.

  13. Makes this year just a little bit better – thanks for your kindness! Reading the book already.
    Btw, 2020 has been my Huss year….reading all that is Huss. Maybe about 20 of your books.
    Love your style, discovering all the intersections between books, & the art. Never stop writing!

  14. Hi! I don’t know what to say , lol
    Thank you for all the cool giveaways. Hope you have a Merry Christmas and blessed holidays

  15. Looking forward to reading this book! You are awesome and I love your writing style. You are definitely true to self. Have a very Merry Christmas!

  16. Hi Julie! It’s no secret to anyone who knows me that I Fucking Love You!!! I look forward to checking FB and Insta everyday to see what’s up in your world. Your honesty and transparency with your readers is refreshing and appreciated. Reading your books kept me sane during the quarantine when I had 4 teenagers stuck in the house with me. Thank you for being you. 💜💜💜

  17. Hey Julie! Happy Holidays to you and your family! Appliance shopping sucks! The clips that held the glass in the door on our old stove broke and it was 1/2 the cost of a new stove to replace so my husband used “Duck Dynasty” duct tape to hold it in. Yes! Duck Dynasty!! The stove worked fine for another five years!!! Anyway thanks for all of your great books. They are a blessing for that escape from reality!

  18. Dirty Ones is my favorite read of yours! Thank you for writing this amazing book. Happy Holidays to you and your family!

  19. Hi from Oregon, thank you for this opportunity. While I have been on your newsletter for a few months this is my first December and I am looking forward to the fun.

  20. Hope everything turns out well for your kitchen. Happy holidays to you and your family. Thank you for being a wonderful and generous person!!!

  21. Hey Julie! I’m really hoping I signed up for the Christmas card list. I can’t remember shit anyone. SMH. Fucking brain is failing me bad….

  22. Hi! Thanks for the chance and for for generosity. Happy holidays to all and wishing you a safe and prosperous 2021.

  23. Wow! You are totally awesome for this, this year has taken so many tolls on everyone. You are a bright light in the darkness.

  24. Happy Holidays Julie! Thank you for your generosity. I love your books and really enjoy the audio versions. Listening during my commute to work makes the time go by quickly. Although I’m sure other drivers around me are often concerned when I am laughing hysterically while driving!

  25. I am a huge fan of your writing and nothing makes me happier than when you bring out a new book. Please keep wring these sexy, sexy stories. I am thrilled every time you tell us a new one’s on it’s way. Yeah!!! Thanks!

  26. Hi Julie! Thanks for the opportunity to win some amazing swag! Let us know how the oven/air fryer combo is when it’s finally installed. We live in a small home (intentionally) and have not jumped on the air fryer bandwagon, since we’d have to store it when not in use. The idea of a combo is intriguing… wishing you & yours a peaceful holiday season.

  27. I sympathize with your missing oven, a few years ago my dad caught mine in fire over Thanksgiving weekend, twice! Luckily my brother in law lived next door so we could borrow their oven. Wishing you and your family a Merry Christmas.

  28. Hi! 😀 Ahhh, the holiday season is here! Hopefully it will help cheer everyone up and not cause anymore anxiety! Thanks for being a part of that cheer with these giveaways!

    1. Thank you for the chance! ❤️ Reading has been my escape this year. I have found so many new amazing authors and reading friends. Xoxo

  29. Yay!! My first time participating in 12 days giveaway..so excited! You are on of my all time favorite authors…can’t go wrong with anything you write! ❤️❤️❤️

  30. I love your writing and you are a great inspiration to me. I hope you enjoy your new oven when it gets there. I lived in CO for 12 years, the first two were on Magnolia mountain outside of Nederland. I live the the last six years of that time north of you by Chatsfield Reservoir. Ten years later, I still miss that part of the country. I hope you love it as much as I did. If you ever have time to talk to an aspiring writer, I would love to hear your advice. Happy Holidays!

  31. Hello from AZ. Ironically, I had my oven go out too. I waited 2 weeks and it was damaged (make sure you inspect it when they deliver it – make them open the box before you sign anything – lesson learned, I was almost stuck with it. The replacement is supposed to be here tomorrow. I hope you get yours soon!

  32. Love your books !! I feel for ya regarding kitchen appliances. My new frig will be delivered this Thursday. The big plus, they will take the old one away, for a fee.

  33. Greetings from Pennsylvania!!!! This had been a tough year for most but your books have helped to ease the pain!!! keep on writing!!!! and we will keep on reading! Happy Holidays! Karen S.

  34. Hi Julie! I pray you get your stove on time so you can have fun with it for the holidays. I am excited to see what you have in store for us in 2021. I am still catching up with all your releases this past year!💖 Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy Healthy New Year!

  35. Hi! Here is a fun fact about me. I NEVER read for fun. EVER. However, back in February I made a commitment to myself to start reading. I have to say you are one of my favorite authors. For the new year I plan to continue with my reading adventures. I have went from not reading to not putting them down.

  36. Hi Julie! Happy Holiday Season to you and thank you for being so good to your fans. And post more pictures of the donkeys, lol!

  37. Hi Julie. I hope you have an wonderful Holiday Season. I also hope you get your stove (with an air fryer, very cool) and microwave installed by Christmas. Thank you for all that you do. ❤️💚

  38. Wishing you a Merry Christmas & Happy New Year! I officially use ear pods at work so I can talk hands free ~ while listening to your books! 🥰😉

  39. Happy holidays!! I have never wanted a year to be over as much as I do this one. I’m thankful for great authors like you to escape the reality of 2029. Thank you!

  40. Hi! I’m always super excited to get your newsletter! It shouldn’t be a surprise since you have crazy awesome giveaways and stuff!

  41. Hello! I just wanted to say hi and thanks for the chance at this wonderful giveaway! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and I hope you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

  42. Happy Dec 1! Getting geared up for a more sedate Christmas this year. Hope yours is wonderful regardless of how it shapes up.

  43. Paranormal isn’t my thing but because you will write it, I will get it to see how I like it. I mean who knows? I didn’t like sci fi but loved the Harem Station so I’m thinking I’ll probably be good with the paranormal.

  44. Well ‘ Hello and a good 1st day of December to you. This is totally awesome! of you to do and put on for us, woot woot!!

  45. Love that you’re doing the 12 Days Giveaway this year! Good luck with the new appliance delivery and installation. Hope it all goes smoothly and you have a stress-free and enjoyable holiday season! Thanks so much for the chance!🎅🏼🎄⛄️🎁

  46. Your 12 Days of Giveaways is so awesome! Love this and thank you, very generous! Wishing everyone a wonderful holiday season.

  47. Love your giveaways! Usually I buy myself a few of your books but it’s been a rough year! I didn’t even sign up for a card. I love the new Rook and Ronin audiobook and of course I had to read Ford, Spencer, The Company, MMITD and then Wasted Lust. I noticed that you have it as a 321 spinoff. I think it’s more of a Company spinoff. I didn’t have to read 321 again to get the story but if people didn’t read the same books I did, I don’t think they would love it as much. Just my opinion. I’m listening to Rock next because the EOBS is awesome in it! Happy holidays, stay safe and I will send you a card since I wasn’t on Facebook for awhile and missed my chance.

  48. I’ve been enjoying your reads and have been stalking you everywhere for the past 5 years and you never disappoint. I really love your Audibles as well. This year has been especially difficult for us all and you just made this holiday season very special for your diehard fans. Thank you for your generosity and may you and your family enjoy this special time of the year. Please don’t put my name in the giveaway I’d like someone else to have that chance. Good luck everyone 💞📚🎧💞
    Happy Holidays to all🎉🎄🎉

  49. Happy holidays Julie! I loved the new Rook and Ronin audiobook! Of course I had to listen to Ford, Spencer, The Company, MMITD and Wasted Lust. I personally think it’s a spinoff of those books more than 321. I didn’t reread that but it’s just my opinion. I usually buy myself some of your books but it’s been a rough year. I missed the card sign up so maybe I’ll send you one this year ❤

  50. Having wonderful people such as you Julie connecting with us has helped us navigate this horrendous year by staying strong,holding loved ones close and having the wonderous world of your mind blowing atoruea.Thankyou so much.xx

  51. Hello from Boise, Idaho! I just finished the Tragic audiobook and I am BLOW MY BANGS BACK in LOVE with the story!! I already started Manic and am so excited to see how the Sturgess campaign turns out!! I’m LOVING this series!!
    Thanks so much for the chance to win! It would be even better then scoring the mega pack of Charmin at Costco and only needing to go twice in one week to get it!!😂🧻🤣💕😉

  52. Hi I’m glad your kitchen will get done even though you have had to wait hope it all goes as planned for you. I love reading I read everyday I love Rh books and read a lot of them in any gene. Lockdown and this year has been absolutely poop kids are bored and specially if you have a disabled child has been hard to keep them busy I had to do a sensory room under the stairs cupboard for mine to cope with all the change that has been happening but apart from every day life and making changes to keep us safe and others I’m lucky to have what we have. I love your books and I am so grateful for authors like your self for writing books to keep us entertained the whole shitty year so Thankyou form the bottom of my heart for keeping me sane x x x x

  62. Thank you for hosting a giveaway with great prizes! It really is nice to have a ray of sunshine among all this dread the world is cast in! Thanks again! ♥️🙏🤞♥️

  63. Hi! I am currently rereading the Rook and Ronin series. I’m on “The Company”. Even though I’ve read it before, I still find myself surprised at the twists and turns and wondering what will happen next. I love it! Thank you for sharing your wonderful words with us! Happy Holidays!

  64. The Dirty Ones was the very 1st book I read by you…loved it. So I went in search of more books & fell down the JA Huss rabbit hole! 46 books later & I have loved every minute of them! Thank you for writing such amazing worlds for us to enjoy!

  65. Hi! Stopping by to say hello and to wish you a merry Christmas and a happy new year. May All your wishes come true. God Bless you, and thanks for this wonderful contest!

  66. This book was AWESOME! I’ve listen to it 2 times in a row. I was not expecting this plot and omg it was perfect! Thank you again for writing this amazing book and for the 12 days giveaway. Wishing you the best holidays!

  67. Hi 💜 thank you for the chance. I totally understand the dramas of living outside the borders of where companies will travel. We are 20 minutes from the border of our capital but they won’t deliver as it’s too far but will travel to the other side of Canberra which can take 45 minutes or more depending on traffic it gives me the giggles everytime.

  68. Hello Julie, Happy Holidays! May peace and good appliances be your portion these holidays. ♡ Much love from SA♡♡♡♡

  69. Merry Christmas to you and your family and this is absolutely fantastic and very generous and thank you for the chance.

  70. Hey Miss Julie! Hope you’re doing great and all. Honestly, I know this comment of mine is just another meagre one in this sea of compliments, still, whatever. I just want you to know that your mind is a beautiful place, one where I’ll gladly shack up any day, despite all the fuckery goin’ on 😉😉. Your stories just keep getting better and better and I love them and I love you😘. Stay happy and stay safe!

  71. Thank you so much for the chances to get some fabulous gifts, this is so appreciated. Thank you also for writing such wonderful books. Happy Holidays!!

  72. My New Years wish is for covid to be gone and we can go back to living like we were. It was one crazy year.. Thank you for the chance. Happy Holidays!!

  73. Happy Holidays to you!! Absolutely LOVE all of your books. I am always counting down doe the next new release! You are brilliant. ❤️❄️🎁🎄

  74. Wow I’m loving this whole site.. such exciting fun.. Happy Holidays to you and than you for the chance to win all this amazing stuff 🤓🤓

  75. Hi Julie! This is technically my first correspondence with you! Thank you for writing these badass books! I love them ALL! Merry Christmas to you and yours! 🎄❤

  76. The time I’ve spent reading your books makes me think of the day I wished to live a long but boring life instead of a short and exciting life. I think of me as one of your female leads and dream of being that exciting and engaging. I have my own wonderful man, but a girl can dream of more. That is why we all love your books. You let us live a life of more.

Leave a comment! I love them!
