CONGRATS TO MY WINNER: Brenda Buschmann
You have been emailed – please reply to the email to collect your prize.
(I just realized I never chose a winner for this giveaway when I was pulling a winner for Savage Saints. Sorry I’m so late!)
Little Company girls are dangerous creatures—but the women they become are downright deadly.
Adam Boucher is an elite member of a global shadow government called the Company. He and his friends, McKay and Donovan, have been raising Indie Anna Accorsi to be a Company assassin since she was ten. She was trained, and fed, and educated, and loved.
But it wasn’t enough.
These little girls are bred for killing and no amount of normal life will ever make them normal.
And now, at age twenty-four, Indie is spinning out of control.
She loses time.
She has no remorse.
She is wild.
And if they want to save her, they need to do it now.
Because if they don’t, she just might kill them next.
I KNOW YOU’VE BEEN WAITING A LONG TIME for this series to continue–and I appreciate your patience VERY MUCH! Almost no one bothered me about how long this series took. It was very nice. But it’s done now. The final two books have actually been done since last fall but the audiobooks were in production and that takes a while because of scheduling.
This is a COMPANY STORY. And if you’re new to me that means it has roots in other books. You can read it without the other books and it’s all fine. Most of these characters don’t show up in those other books and if you need to know any of the crossover story lines, it’s explained. You won’t get all the details, of course, but I make sure you get what you need to know.
I’m going to tell you right now–GORGEOUS MISERY IS A CLIFFHANGER. So if you hate those you can wait two months for the last book to come out. I don’t care what people think about cliffhangers, and I get accused of writing them all the time (even though I don’t), but if you want to see what a REAL cliffhanger is, here you go. Exhibit. Fucking. A.
Ever since I started writing people in this business have always been trying to tell me how to write, what to write, blah, blah, blah. They always want to give me advice on how to make my books “more popular”. But I’m not really interested in being “more popular”. If I was, I’d write rom com and call it good. I’d write simple plots, or no plot, with stock characters and set the whole thing in a coffee shop ala “Friends”.
But then I’d be writing books I’d never read. And I made a promise to myself way back in 2012. If I was going to write romance then I was going to make sure that the final product would be something I would read. And I don’t read rom coms. They’re just not ‘my thing’. And I don’t care for simple plots with stock characters. I like this kind of twisted shit with dark undertones. I like characters who live on the edge of society (or even better, outside of society) because I live on the edge of society. My entire life has been decades of watching the masses do their thing from the cover of trees and I like it that way. I don’t want to be popular. I never want to be famous. And I don’t get FOMO.
I have lived my life ‘my way’ and I write books about characters who do the same.
So even though my stories aren’t meant for the ‘masses’ the way some stories are, that’s just fine with me.
And after ten years, and coming up on almost 100 books, why should I care who reads them? I don’t. It’s all about what you like, right? Not everyone likes my stories but if they were meant for everyone to read, they wouldn’t be special.
I have the BEST fans in the entire fucking world.
I write for me and I write for them.
And THIS SERIES is 100% what I’m about as an author.

DON’T FORGET TO ENTER THE GIVEAWAY!
I was going to do a really big giveaway with lots of paperbacks but I have no clue when these paperbacks will show up. Shipping is a fucked-up mess right now. So I’m just going to put up a gift card for this giveaway and then I’ll do something big and special once the last book releases in March.
TO ENTER TO WIN A $50 GIFT CARD LEAVE A COMMENT BELOW AND ANSWER THIS QUESTION:
What are your plans for spring? Got any? Looking forward to anything this year?
I will choose one winner on February 15, 2022.
Winner will be notified via the email they use to leave the comment.
I actually have a shit-ton of things coming up for spring and summer and almost none of them are about books. 🙂 I’m finally settling in to this piece of land I bought almost five years ago. They always say when you buy a big piece of land you should live on it for a while before you make changes so you can get to know it better. I’m going to pretend that’s why I’ve waited so long. lol
But this is the year I get my shit together. I have chicks coming in March so I will be building and painting my coop for them soon. I’m exited to raise chickens again and they are all egg layers, so I won’t ever have to buy eggs again.
I have dairy goats coming sometime this spring–the breeder is going to pick them out for me, so I’m not sure which goat I will get or when they will be born. But I’m getting ready for them by building a new fence that will go up in March and I ordered a custom goat shed that will be delivered around the same time.
And I have bees coming in May. I have always wanted to raise bees so I decided, why not just jump in to this farm life feet first and get them now. I already have the hive and I’ll be painting that soon. I am not allergic to bees and I am not afraid of bees, but I really enjoy them. This property has thousands of bees that buzz around all summer. I can’t even name the number of different kinds. But I want to harvest my own honey, so I need my own bees.
Also, I will have a section of the ranch devoted to raised-bed gardening. I will only have five of them because to be honest, I’m not very good at gardening. But I’m gonna give it a try this year so I can have a constant source of tomatoes and cucumbers all summer. Maybe pumpkins too. I’d have to plant those in the field outside my new fence, and we have a LOT of deer. So maybe I’ll just do a couple this year to make sure the deer don’t destroy them.
It sounds like a lot but really, all this stuff will fit on about an acre. And I have almost forty of them, so it’s only a teeny, tiny part of my property.
But I will also be writing. I’m hard at work on Savage Saints right now. It’s been up for pre-order since last year and will release on time on April 26, 2022. But the audiobook won’t be out until maybe August? I’ll keep you posted on that.
So that’s my spring. It’s going to be very busy but I’m excited that I finally have time to turn this land into what I envisioned when I bought it.
Welp, that’s what I’m up to. I hope you guys are all hanging in there. I know this year is already starting to look like a shit show, but I still think it’s going to get better.
THANKS FOR STOPPING BY!
Hopefully I can see my Grandkids more this Spring. I am also looking forward to getting away for a few days. We canceled our last trip because of Covid. I’m getting sick of this already, I think we all want our life back.
Hopefully we have a nice spring and I can get out and clean out shrubs that need to come out, get the trees trimmed, and lay some extra decking around the pool. I have big plans…I just to finally get them at least started!
Thank you for the chance!
I am planning to babysit my beautiful 17 month old granddaughter more this Spring. Wasn’t able to last year because I was in chemotherapy and recovery. Am now in remission and am feeling stronger every day. Hope to be able to garden a bit as well. Spring is gorgeous in Georgia and I hope to go on many day trips with my handsome hubby of 41 years and my psychotic but sweet Pomeranian.
I am patiently wait to see my youngest son, in his debut in the play CLUE. He is a senior in high-school. Waiting for all the beautiful spring blooms.
I am having hip replacement and I am hoping for a swift recovery so I can hit the beach in July!! Thanks for the chance
I love the covers!
Love your books especially the suspense and twist of them ànd the chemistry between the characters. This spring I’m hoping to enjoy my daughter’s final semester of high school though she will only be taking college courses at the local community college cause she did dual enrollment her jr and senior yrs of highschool. So proud of her she will start college as a sophomore and hopefully we can take the spring and celebrate her accomplishments and her 18th bday in May
Wow – Sexy covers! Excited for the new release. My spring plans are to get in my garden. It has been a rough winter out there.
Forgot my email
(RITA – I can see your email privately when you comment, no need to leave it here. So I deleted it for your privacy!) TY!
This is another busy year – we rescheduled our Spring Break beach trip for the summer, we will probably go up to Flagstaff for a few days instead, (the oldest is going to NAU in the fall). I’m finishing my Masters (should be done in October). Lots of changes for the fall- one going off to college, one going to middle school and this will be 2nd degree that I’ll finish during Covid.
Wow..have so much going on!! My youngest (of 5) graduates high school, so we will see where and what she wants to do with her life, and of course spend time with my grandkids(6!!!) And I am lucky enough that one of them is living with me at least for another year!! We have a couple of trips planned so looking forward to them!
No plans for Spring. One day at a time for me. Glad the latest book is out. Can’t wait to read it!
Love the covers! I hope to go on a small trip!
SO excited for this. This Spring is busy because my baby graduates 8th grade plus her dance and trip. I am also still growing a baby lemon tree. It hasn’t died yet but still no lemons lol. I know it take around 2 years to grow any. So hoping it continues to grow.
Looking forward to my trip this summer. Have the first three books on audio and just love them. Can’t wait for preorder on LOVELY DARKNESS.
Keep my kids busy. Lol. I have 6 children, but two are grown and out of the house. The younger 4 keep me on my toes. We will probably go to many beach trips, river boating, and trampoline parks.
Spring. I have so many plans. I just need the snow to go away. I need sunshine on this frozen tundra. First of all, I raise cows (well my family does) so Spring means calving and babies and making sure everyone is healthy and taken care of. We plan to do a raised flower cutting bed in front of our house just because and have a raised garden bed because I like fresh veggies. And I hope we finish up our basement so I don’t feel like I live in a two bedroom apartment with 2 dogs and 3 cats.
I need to start cleaning out closets and all the hidey-holes where stuff has been shoved for years! It won’t be long (a few more years) before the hubby retires and then we’re out of here, bitches! LOL We want to move somewhere green with some land so we can garden and plant flowers and enjoy retirement.
I don’t really have any plans. Maybe working on my yard though.
Nothing too major! I have a girls trip I need to plan with my ride or die bestie & sister this spring! My littles bday over spring break, she turning six & we are planning her 1st bday party with friends from school. Other than that just the usual stuff!
Thank you for writing amazing stories that you love to write & we all love to read!
My plan is get my horse into shape, so far we are able to do 3hrs trail rides 2x a week and 1hr in the area 2x a week and one big turn out. My goal is to be able to ride 5 to 6 hrs on trail 3x week and do area workouts 3x week. Maybe enter into an online endurance ride. It’s where we do what we can a day and it is all tallied up at the end to see who had the most distance.
That sounds fun Sheryl! Maybe next year I will get a horse. 🙂
This spring my goal is to get a new roof and siding on my house and garage. I’m a bit scared as I’ve never done a home project this large. I’m also looking forward to finally (fingers crossed) seeing a musical that I was supposed to see in May 2020. This is the second rescheduling so I really hopes it goes this time.
I’m happy to say I actually have a spring plan – I’m joining my family in San Diego for a week at the beach where we grew up. Just the thought of having a coffee while walking with my sister is putting a smile on my face. 😉
We have plans to finally landscape the front of our house!! Our 4 yo daughter and I both LOVE crystals and other rocks so on one side, we out voted daddy (he wanted to plant arborvitae) and are going to lay river rock. I also plan to get her into rock tumbling this year so we will be adding those to the rock bed also. The other side we are going to level out with pavers for a patio.
I really hope you will be adding a section to the newsletter with pictures and other progress updates with your farm/ranch!!
I will be starting a new job after my boss retires. Been here 32 years. Big changes but a work from home job I am looking forward to.
I don’t have any plans because of this pandemic. I just want to stay safe. But I love the covers!
I have both my boys graduating this spring! Ben from college and Sam from High School. It is going to be a season of celebrations, comings and goings and maybe a little bit of road tripping. We are finally getting a new roof on our house and maybe I can convince Adam to do the siding too. LOL
That is exactly what I am doing. I’ve already started my plans for my garden. I have one area to start with. I want to grow tomatoes and watermelons. That’s where I’m starting. I have been able to have some more time to do this. I have 2 test, then a major surgery after these test. I can’t wait to get it all behind me.
Hi Julie! My plans for the spring is to get my flower beds in order, plant some new flowers. Also to get some painting done to my living room. While I’m still able, I’m hoping to get to the Outer Banks this year and to walk along the shoreline, collect some shells and just watch the ocean, to feel that ocean breeze once again!
I don’t have any spring plans because I am a teacher and we don’t have that luxury 🤣. I am looking forward to my first ever cruise. It is coming up in a few short weeks. I cannot wait. I get to knock off my number 1 bucket list thing to do. I am getting to swim with the dolphins! I can not freaking wait!
Gardening! I can’t wait to get out in the dirt. I’ve lost some weight and have been trying to strengthen up to dig holes lol.
I am getting back to making this Spring, I have been without a workshop for 18 months, so it will be good to get back making Jewellery.
I don’t have spring plans, but I will tell you that my $50 GC (should I win) would be used to purchase your audiobooks!!! I live listening to them, and I would listen to them over and over!
Hi Julie!!! No plans for spring yet but reading!! Can’t wait to see how this series ends with Lovely Darkness!! Your mind is amazing and I am so glad I found your books. Everyone I have read is a ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️+ read!!!l Thank your for sharing your talent with us❤️
I cannot wait until spring. We just got some snow over the weekend. I live in Northwest Ohio & snow has been pretty scarce. But we have been having cold weather & I am over it! I cannot wait until spring to work in my flower gardens & enjoy the beautiful Lake Erie. That is my happy place. Thank you for this chance.
hopefully going a cruise Feb 18, 10 day southern on Princess. I’m in Canada so the logistics of getting there and on the ship is what I’m thinking about. Can’t think past that. Working from home office til March 1, that is the latest date, and it’s been a flipping cold January, nine days of -20C, the whole of last year we only have five days total. Anyways, one day at a time.
My plans for spring is to thrive. Last year was one of the worst years of my fucking life. I seriously wanted to end it. But things are starting to look up now. We’re going to be okay. I trust that we’re going to be okay. I plan to get back on my feet, overcome my anxiety, kickass at what I do, grow a garden, and explore new areas.
I really don’t have anything to look forward to this Spring. I’m not being a pessimist but nothing is planned. I just really hope that my family and myself have a good year.
I am hoping to redo my kitchen this spring but we will have to see how things are going with supply shortages.
I wish i had bug plans like you but in my business i do nothing but work and dream about the summer when life gets back ti nornal
I LOVE that you don’t write ‘popular’ books (even though they do end up being popular anyway!). That style of writing is just so boring and predictable to me. I need my mind to be busy trying to figure shit out. I rarely manage it with your stories because you unexpectedly twist things. Especially at the last minute! It’s everything I can hope for as a reader.
I haven’t really listened to any new books in a while. I keep bingeing yours over and over again lol
Your plans for Spring are so interesting. I love seeing your photos and hearing about your real life. (I’d 100% live away from society too if I could!).
I’m disabled and have really been struggling for quite some time. I have a PA now. She started a couple of weeks ago. She’s helping me to sort my house out because I crave organisation but majorly suck at keeping it. She’s helped me to get rid of loads of stuff that I’ve been hanging on to for no reason. I just need support to go through with it lol
I’m going to try to redecorate later in the year. I very rarely leave the house so I want to try to make it into a home. I’ve lived here for 12 years and it’s beyond time to settle in lol
I’ve also rediscovered my love of horses. I was obsessed with them growing up but life happened. My parents couldn’t afford it anymore and my disability got in the way. My daughter (is 10 on Sunday!) started riding last year and being around horses again has been absolutely magical. I almost feel like that feeling had been stolen from me but it’s back now. I love being with them. I actually went riding with her on Sunday. It’s not something I will be able to do very often but I loved every minute of it.
I’m autistic and had no idea until last year. My whole life makes sense now and it feels amazing to finally know why I am the way I am. I’m going to put myself first this year. I’m 37 in June and I’m sick of trying to be someone I’m not. I know it sounds cheesy af but I want to find the real me and who I might have been had I not been forced to mask. It’s been hard learning how to drop it but I’m not going to pretend I’m ‘normal’ anymore. My friend said I did a bad job at it anyway and that’s super true lol. I’ve been seeing a therapist and I’m trying to heal. I see a lot of change in my future and for the first time I feel hopeful about it.
I’d like to volunteer somewhere with horses when I feel like I am in a better place. My PA is with me for 4 hours a week so can take me out whenever I feel able to. You’ve inspired me to try new things. I’m looking forward to what you have in store for us this year 💗
I didn’t mean to write an essay but here we are 😅
Abbey – 100% always be who you are. 🙂 TY and I love horses too. I hope to get one soonish once things settle down.
I’m working on it 💗 I hope you do get a horse one day ☺️ It was always my dream but now it’s my daughter’s. I’m living vicariously through her 🥰
Either in March or April my husband and I are going to visit a dear friend of his in Lexington,KY. This gentleman started a place to study decomposing bodies known as Th Body Farm. I’m hoping that I will get a tour of this facility. On the way going and coming back I’m hoping to
stop at a lot of antique shops and flea markets. I’m very excited for this trip.
Thanks for the chance. Just downloaded book 1. Can’t wait to start it.
For my job, we have several spring events planned. Two of them are online, so we din’t have to worry about certain things! One is in person, but it’s in May so hopefully we will be able to hold it. Thanks for the chance!
Don’t have any plans for spring. Looking forward to warmer weather.
No specific plans yet but going on a mountain trip with the family in March. Thanks for the chance.
Thanks for the update, Julie! I haven’t started the Creeping Beautiful series yet, but definitely will once all the books are out. What a phenomenal cast of narrators!
My spring is still a bit up in the air. We have a couple of weekend getaways planned that hopefully won’t be derailed by Covid. We are also planning on replacing our back deck and hopefully doing some upgrades to our backyard. Funds depending… Take care!
My plans for the spring is doing some zoo experiences with my kids. My 6 year old daughter loves Sloths so I found a zoo that she can hold and feed one. I also found a kangaroo experience that my 8 year old son wants to do. And there is penguin one at an aquarium that I want to do but my daughter isn’t old enough so that might be a stay with grandma. Lol
I plan to expand my farm this spring and show our cows which gives me plenty of book time while we travel and on the farm!
My husband and I are taking a getaway trip by ourselves for the first time since our honeymoon, 16 years ago!
Thank you first off for this series. I love how you write snd wouldn’t change a single thing. This spring I am looking forward to watching my new granddaughter change as she grows and hopefully take care of noncovid patients again as an icu nurse. Good luck with your chick’s, goats and bees!
This Spring I am going to Mexico for the first time for a family friends wedding!! It is at an all inclusive resort and I can’t wait!! Thank you for this opportunity you are an amazing author!
My Spring plans are to get out with my camera more often and take lots of wildlife shots 🙂
Me too! I bought myself a camera last fall and I hope to use it more this summer.
We started a THC edibles Company 2 years ago and it has been a struggle. Covid delayed us the 1st year. This year it’s been a lot of unexpected expenses. It’s difficult to be the little guy but, we are positive we’ll be successful. My plan this spring is to be busy, successful and to listen to JA Huss and KC Cross on Audible. Ok John McClain too 😉
It’s tough just starting out. But keep going! 🙂
Since our boys won’t get a spring break this year. The college doesn’t want more Covid exposure so we planned a camping trip when school ends.
I plan to get back on my daily hike on a nearby river trail. It’s just too dark now after work and I hate the gym. My hubby and I find it to be wonderfully peaceful. Kept us sane during the worst of the past couple years.
Other than spring break on the gulf, no real plans. Happy book birthday!!! <3
We really upped our garden last year – and intent to continue that process this spring. We even have a “winter” garden going on – good stuff!
i dont have any current plans yet
I have always wanted a nice grass yard. A place that feels really good on the bare toes ya know? I’m working on getting the equipment and learning what I need to know. Makes me wish I paid more attention to chemistry in school. Lol! Like you also want to get the chicken coop up. Raised beds for vegetables– hoping even to can/freeze. Live a simpler (but not easier) life.
Gorgeous covers!!! I have no plans for Spring but I’m looking forward to family vacation in the summer. Not sure where to as of yet but it will be a road trip 😀
We have a trip planned to say at a casino resort for a week. Hopefully it works out.
My niece is getting married this Spring so I’m looking forward to that and the warmer weather.
Hey Julie love everything you create… Your awesome.
Anyways this spring my youngest daughter will turn 2 and I’ll turn 35.. and we will be announcing that we will be adding baby #9 in September!!! Hope you have a blessed year and I can’t wait to see what wonderful books your send our way!!
#9!!! You must call them Nine. Kidding. lol. Your family looks and sounds amazing. Congrats!!!!
Thanks, we have 5 boys and 3 girls..so reading is like my getaway..
This spring I am redoing my main garden by making it larger and using it for different vegetables. My fence and side gardens are getting upgrades also. I hope to be working on the gazebo I was promised 5 years ago when I took down the pool. The kids no longer lived at home and the grandkids were not using it any more. I have lots of little things to do, but we have started the seed to see what will grow from lasts years pickings. Hope your spring if fulled with outside fun.
I am looking forward to moving. We are downsizing and can’t wait to be in a smaller home.
Work… bills always have to be paid. Gggrrr life
Going with my Son and his family camping and CanAming – My grandaughter is just over a year so this season will be an absolute blast – G’ma is a bit of a trouble maker lol
We are taking a family trip to the mountains I can’t wait
I’m looking forward to tending to my gardens and enjoying the outdoors.
Hii.. our plans are to spruce up our home and after years of being the same were going decorate our home is bright comforting colors. I can’t wait I love the fresh feeling of new. Thank you.
Oh my gosh Julie you sound like spring is crazy busy for you. Spring will be tame for me but hoping for a trip to NYC in May. Then vacation somewhere out west in June.
It amazes me that people criticize what you write. I’m in love with you but even if I wasn’t I would just move on. You keep doing you because you rock!
This spring I’m looking forward to getting settled on our new land and hopefully building a deck and getting a pool, because Texas summers are no joke! I’m also excited to start our garden, we like tomato and cucumbers here too 😊
This spring I plan on having big yard sale. I just had my last baby and have tons of baby stuff I need to get sort. I also have random items I usually donate, however since COVID it’s been difficult to find places that accept donations.
This spring I’m looking forward to being outside taking lots of walks down the lake and getting all my yard work done.
Being outside and starting a garden!
I have a lot of work to do in my gardens this spring. I want to make another raised bed along my patio which means I have to build a stone wall around it so it matches the rest! And I have to rearrange some of my plants and shrubs. I recommend planting the pumpkins close to the house to discourage the deer. (and to plant extra so you have some left for yourself!) We’re also hoping to take a drive to North Carolina in May…still have to do a little planning!
Yes!! We are going to start moving walls and extending the house! I am so excited. We bought our rental and now it is (almost) time to make it ours!
My plans for the spring involve getting my five 4’x12’ raised garden beds back in order and planted and replacing a nearby wood retaining wall with stepping stones. I got Covid last March and the effects lingered through the summer, so my yard kinda went to shit and I’ve got to clean that up now that my energy has finally returned. On the up side, I started reading more over the summer and discovered all your amazing books, so yay for that. Other plans involve a few outings with my Girl Scout troop. I’m particularly excited about a trip to an indoor water park.
Hey Julie! I am looking for a new job! This one is like a ticking time bomb and not sure when the whole thing will implode. I love your plans! My daughter wants a sustainable farm. I don’t know where she plans to look for land. I would love to check out Colorado. I am looking forward to your farming updates!
I have no plans for Spring. I would like to just get through the rest of Winter unscathed. Two of my kids will be graduating from high school in June, one a year early, so we will be prepping for that and getting them both into college and getting that sorted. As far as my yard goes, I’ll just do the maintenance and fertilizing for what I already have planted.
I am looking forward to spring because I want to make more boxes for my box garden. Nothing better than fresh vegetables. I am also hopefully looking forward to a world where Covid is eliminated so that people can reconnect with people and family again.
I have no big plans for spring. Just looking forward to the warmer weather and getting outside.
I have business studies on my plate right now but I’ll do some trips as well. Aruba in the end of February and new project work all spring along. I also look forward to my winter garlic growing – if at all!
For the first time in 2 years, we have lots of travel planned. Driving to NOLA and San Antonio in April. Doing a river cruise in May on the Danube, starting in Budapest, through spots in Germany and ending in Prague!! Retired and that’s where all our savings are going…. other than books!! Thanks for the talent!
I have no set plans for spring although I really, really, really need to have a garage sale and I need to do some major spring cleaning. I’m hoping to get some more motivation to make this stuff happen and more.
Congrats on the new release and thank you so much for the wonderful opportunity!
I’m looking forward to spending more time outdoors with my son. I feel like it’s been ages since we were able to go to the park without getting frost bite 😁
I have some ancestral property in Virginia that needs some attention, so my plan is to go there and survey what needs to be done to make it easier to get to and what to put on it to make it a quiet vacation place.
I am looking forward to warmer weather this spring! I live up north and it is just So..Dang…Cold lately! I am ready for warmth.
First off…. Beautiful f**king cover!!!!! I’m so glad these are in kindle unlimited! Can’t wait to start reading!!! Last year I started a sanctuary for both bee’s and butterflies with a kinds of plants and small water stations on my porch! I got even hummingbird’s coming so this year I’m getting more plants and I even got a shit load of milk weed seeds from the Live Monarch Foundation so I have lots of monarchs!!! Can’t wait! 💞💋
Congrats! No plans for now. Looking for a job currently so I’ll see and of course looking forward to all book releases.
I had a heart attack 3 days after Christmas, so I am all about getting myself in a different lifestyle. After a super cold Winter in Iowa I am just looking forward to Spring. Warmer weather, sitting outside enjoying the peace and quiet of living in the country. Visiting with family. Just enjoying life in general. No big plans.
First off I love this cover its so beautiful!!!! I’m so glad this is in kindle unlimited! Can’t wait to start reading this series! Last year I started a sanctuary for both bee’s and butterflies with all kinds of flowers and little water stations around and on my porch! I even saw hummingbirds!!! This year I’m getting more and will even do banister planters too. Also I got a shit load of milk weed from the Live Monarch Foundation, so hopefully I’ll have some more beautiful monarch butterflies!! Take care💞💋
Hopefully go on a vacation.
I am going to do more than one 5K this year.
And I’m shooting to read 200 books this year and listen to 100. What a year it will be.
This spring, I hope to catch up on a buttload of sht that didn’t get done this past holiday season–mostly because at one time or another, my entire friend group had the dreaded C-19, even though most of them were vaccinated. Yuck. Crappy year.
I plan to go on a trip somewhere with my kids. Not sure where yet. We’re still thinking haha.
Sometime this spring before the kids get out of school my husband and I will go on a road trip. I refuse to get on a plane right now. But with audiobooks we have enjoyed some pretty good times the last couple of years. Happy Release Day! I love your twisted dark plots and HEAs!
No big plans, I’m looking forward to the flowers blooming and getting healthier so I can go on some hikes. I love the freshness of Spring!
Happy Release Week! Congratulations! Thanks for the amazing chance!
Hey Julie! I’m glad you are writing the way you want! I just happened up on Rook N Ronin a few years ago looking for new authors that didn’t write the predictable romance stuff although I’ve been an avid reader of them since Sweet Valley High in middle school 😂. I was hooked from the get-go and love love the twisted turns and dark character plots! So…good for you! It keeps us excited for what comes next!! Can’t wait to read Gorgeous Misery!
So I plan to get some fishing in when it warms up around March!! Us Southerners cannot handle cold weather long so it’s off to the river we go ASAP! 😘
I’m looking forward to just being at home during my vacation lol. Spending time with family is always a plus.
No plans yet because my kids (freshman in high school and freshman in college) school and sport schedules don’t overlap making it more of a challenge but we always make it work.
I love your plans! I’ve always fantasized about living on a large piece of land away from the world…. but still able to get deliveries and drive to town when I want. I don’t have any specific plans myself; I’m always in a continual “spring cleaning” phase mostly because I don’t really work on it. I need to get rid of some stuff (okay, a lot) but it’s difficult to tear myself away from books/reading! This has been my favorite series of yours and I am eager to see where you took the characters/story. And the covers!! Gorgeous indeed. Congrats on finishing the series!!
I don’t have nearly as many plans as you do, Julie! I hope to get organized and look for a job in the sewing industry, which is what my education focused on. I also want to do more training of my dogs. Finally, I wish to get back to sewing and quilting, which I’ve fallen. Out of doing over the past several years. I wish you tons of happiness (and energy) as you build your farm!
Take my kiddos for hikes. Love the great outdoors. So great to just relax and read outside too 😉
Get my CRPS under control so I can have more freedome to do stuff without assistance
I hate winter….. It gets me depressed. I want to get exercising again and get rid of my muffin top I created over the holidays!!!!
I plan on walking the trails with my grandson. We both love it.
I rescued a stray cat just a few days after Thanksgiving- and it turns out she’s pregnant, so I’m looking forward to a litter of kittens soon. I plan to keep one kitten, my neighbor and her caretaker want one each also.
I am planning on putting in new carpet in my house along with another bathroom. I am looking forward to planting a garden and new flowers.
I don’t really have any plans for spring. I do hope everything is a little more back to normal so I can sight see and visit more places freely.
hello!..i’m looking forward to spring…i plan on spending lots of quality outdoors time and also watching my grandaughter when her mom has to go back to work….
No actual plans for the Spring. I love the idea of a sizeable garden, but I kill everything! I can’t wait for you to share your farm adventures.
Hoping to plan a getaway with my mom to the beach in March during spring break.
I am looking forward to spring, garden clearing more land, fencing in area for goats! We are going to buy a new tractor this year! I can’t wait!
I honestly don’t have any spring plans ,I am looking forward to the slightly warmer weather and there being more greenery,flowers will start to bloom and trees will get leaves and blossoms on them.Then there is Easter and going on Easter egg hunts with my Nieces and Nephews and of course eating lots of choclate eggs.Also the clocks go forward so lighter nights,it will stay light until 9p.m I also think that everyones mood get a little better to as we say goodbye to Winter It feels like a new beginning.
Thankyou so much for the Chance.
Congratulations on your new book. xxxxxxxxxxx
I can’t wait for this series to be complete! I think I’ll wait for the final book to come out and then read them. When I read the 1st two I didn’t realize that the entire series wasn’t completed so I’ve been anxious to finish it up but a major cliffhanger will kill me!!
Spring is all about my son’s baseball. We just finished my daughter’s soccer season so she is starting track and my son is doing travel baseball and rec soccer. So many balls, but not the ones attached to sexy men! 😆
Man, I typed a really long comment but it apparently disappeared into the ether. I’ll just say my spring plans revolve around my kid’s sports: Baseball, soccer, and track!
Well, it’s posted now! Lol. So you can delete this one.
I’m looking forward to road trips!! We always pick out new places in our state we haven’t been to yet to go and explore. I love the beaches and the forests!
i dont have any plans honestly maybe buy a couch read more soem crafts
One final trip away with son who is a senior in high school this year 🙁
No plans for spring yet.
I am looking forward to releasing my debut novella and starting a new one. Plus, heading up to Sedona, AZ to see the read rocks 🙂
My sister is getting married in the fall and I’m her maid of honor, so we’re going to be really busy with wedding preparations.
Well do to covid over the past 2 years we missed out on a lot of concerts so I’m excited to be going to Shinedown here in Febuary right before me and hubby’s 23rd anniversary!!!
I really don’t have any big plans for the spring. February 12th I turn 56 and April 3rd my husband turns 71. The winter months are so hard on my pain so we’re just looking forward to warmer weather. Until then I plan on reading as much as I can. I’m doing a little rereading of one of my favorite series and am thinking about rereading another series. I’m anxiously waiting for the final book in the Creeping Beautiful series before I start to read any of the series. I prefer to wait so I can binge read a series all at once.
I’m so glad you stay true to writing your books your way. Obviously it works! I am truly amazed by your talent when I’m reading your books and enjoying a phenomenal story that connects with your other characters /books/ series. Please keep them coming!
Julie, I fucking love you!! I love that you say what you think and write what you want (and you are masterful at it) and give no fucks what others think. Sometimes the things you write in newsletters and EOBS make me think I have a clone in CO! Lol. I actually grew up in Colorado Springs…but we certainly didn’t have a ranch with all that property. God bless you for your Spring focus on sustainability and for raising bees! After we moved from Colorado to Illinois we lived on a big farm (my parents still do) and grew so much of our own food and had all the animals and livestock and all that farm stuff. It was fantastic! I hope you enjoy it! And congrats on the new book and audio releases! Love all your stuff soooo much!!
As for my Spring…I’m just hoping Florida (where I live now) gets over being so damn stupid about the COVID a thing so we don’t have another record setting outbreak here. Then maybe I can just enjoy Spring in Florida. It’s the best time of year here by far and I have missed it. Other than that, just planning some small home repair/upgrade/remodel projects.
Thanks for the chance!💕💕💕
I’m looking forward to going outside without my weight in coats lol
I have no plans, but am thinking I am in need of a vacation. A real vacation. My last vacation I went to visit family where I ended up taking care of people, cooking, cleaning and working the entire time. Getting back home was finally having time to rest. That last vacation made me think as soon as COVID leaves us, I want to plan a real vacation where I can take a great book and just relax. Hopefully this will be the year that happens.
I don’t have any special plans for spring.
My plans are to read more books and spend time with my family.
I don’t have any plans for spring but I am hoping that I can go somewhere…don’t know where or when but we’ve been without a vacation for so long now, trying to do our part to prevent the spread of the virus that I would be thrilled to go just about anywhere.
As we are heading out of our really hot Summer here and into Autumn, I am looking forward to the cooler weather and going camping with friends. We have beautiful National parks to explore and I love any excuse to enjoy fun times with good friends 😊
Well in May we have a camping trip planned and later we may take our grandsons on a trip to Branson Missouri depending on the Covina situation but can’t wait for some FUN!!
No plans for spring, just got a promotion at work so it’s time to hunker down!
I am hoping this Spring will bring better news than this winter and my husband and I can once again get out and do some fun things. Like going to a movie or having dinner in a restaurant.
My plans are getting my foot better and keep working on staying healthy and fit❤
Hoping to do another yard sale when the weather warms up a bit. The last one I did wasn’t overly successful, but it was fun. I have a few neighbors who want to join in this time, so that would be great. Also wishing for the whole pandemic thing to be declared “OVER”!
From one I don’t care if I’m popular gal to another, thank you for writing the way you do. It’s exactly WHY I’m a fan.
Now to the assignment. Late this spring I’ll be graduating my youngest from homeschool. I’ve been a homeschool mom for 21 years, so this will leave me free to do something I’ve always wanted to do and that’s to write a book. I don’t know what the hell I’m doing, but I’m going to give it my best shot. The name I use here is already a pen name, so it’s hopefully a name you’ll see on a book later in 2022 or in 2023. I have gotten advice from author friends on a good editor and such, so now it just needs to be done.
Almost 25 years ago, I made a choice as a vocalist doing contract work in musicals in my home city to instead cancel all my contracts, move a couple hundred miles away, and live my dream of being a wife and mother, a much stronger desire than “being famous” or even “well known” in my own city. In that same vein, I’m not having any big ideas about writing. I’m not doing this for anyone out there. I think it’s awesome if someone likes it. We could sure use some extra income. But I’m also planning to become a chair yoga instructor and that’s where I plan to get extra income. Anything from books would be a bonus.
That sounds amazing. And I was a homeschool mom too! It was a lot of work but also a lot of fun and i got so many memories – esp with my youngest who never went to “real” school. Even he looks back on it with fond memories.
This spring will be a couple of college tours for my 16 year old daughter. It’s exciting & a little overwhelming to think she’ll be headed off on her own in a little over a year! And for my son, he’s all about sports & riding his dirt bike. Looking forward to planning a family vacay for summer as well. Take care & thank you for sharing with us!
I can’t wait to read Gorgeous Misery and the others! I love the covers, too! I don’t really make plans because it never works out, but I hope to at least get my stairs and porch fixed the way I want it and maybe some landscaping around it, this spring! As for the year, I mostly just take the days as they come! Have a spectacular day!
I look forward to being with family and friends again after this latest Covid outbreak
Looking forward to our family trip to Poland! Hopefully we can actually go this year, it was cancelled in the past due to covid. My husband and I also want to make our own honey to continue our Mead seltzer production and this year is the year for bees, so hopefully it works out! I also would like to start teaching yoga/meditation for brain health classes with the certifications I have obtained. This will take a little more time and effort to start but shooting for spring time. Cheers to some good times and memories coming in 2022 🍻
I haven’t really got any plans for spring except try to go on more walks, try to eat a more healthier diet and try to be more organised. Most exciting thing I have to look forward to is the book signing I am going to in May! Fingers crossed it goes ahead!
I’m just hoping that i can get out more and kick this heightened anxiety in the keester, cause I am beyond over it. Also just working on my novels and ideas for my possible online design business venture..
Love your books. I tell everyone I talk to about my favorite author JA Huss. If another author asks for recommendations your the only one I tell them to read and give ideas where to start and why, but throw in some of your stand alone books too. Spring is going to be a big one for me this year. I promised myself I would get out of the house more and make my place look pretty. I have never been a gardener. Oh I’ve planted a couple Dogwood trees and some Hosta plants by myself and I didn’t kill them.😉 There is absolutely no plants of any kind at my new place. Well one big tree close to the front side, but that’s all and it needs lower branches trimmed. I’m gonna get out there and put some of my Pinterest ideas for a succulent garden in and plant a flowering tree (I love those) in the middle. I love perennials because they’re beautiful and always come back the next Spring so those are a definite and I’ll be planting a few flowers. I’ve had good luck with a few kinds like Day Lillies and my daughter has some really hardy roses that grow no matter what, so think I might try them. I m gonna try to grow tomatoes in a pot and see how I do. If I get half of that done, I’ll be happy.😜
Hoping I can do a house makeover, also some weekends on the beach 😊
After many well thought out business ventures that Have never seen the light of day, I am finally going to take the plunge and start a business. I get to finally do what I love and start crafting fun little fridge magnets to sell. I’m excited to see if I can turn a profit with my creativity.
Im looking forward to warm temps,, and in april or may my sister and i wre goingto walt disney world !its a trip of a lifetime!)
No major plans, except to enjoy the hopefully, none freezing weather! 😀
No big plans, probably going to lots of movies.
We are remodeling our entire house room by room. This is year 2 we have been living through this remodel!! I am praying we are finished by this spring/summer! It has been a real test of our patience living in such chaos for so long. Each room has turned out so great. So totally worth it, but has been very challenging! Also going to Hilton Head and Savannah for the first time . That should be fun!
Camping or rather glamping starts in May for us in Canuck country. Not planning any real vacation time for it just yet but definitely doing some long weekend camping 3 to 5 day weekends scattered throughout spring and summer. We have a nice trailer and an outdoor kitchen setup that is wonderful.
I hope all goes well with the chickens, eggs, goats, goat milking lol, bee hives and gardening on your farm.
(If I win I Hope the gift card is internationally available. I have prime on Amazon.ca but I have Amazon.com account too)
This spring I plan to gather up enough courage to finally record some demos for audiobook narration and actually submit them.
I looking forward to spending time with my grandson when he has spring break from school.
My plans are to finally get some time off from work and visit friends.
I am looking forward to slightly warmer weather and attending my son’s wedding to his college sweetheart.
Ah, yes. spring. Seems so far away lol. Plans are to be out and about more and to simply enjoy the better weather. Winter hater over here. Thanks!
Hmmm…. I have decided that this Spring will kick off my full in Oregon immersion. I have lived here since 95 and have never done all there is to do. So, I will explore to my heart’s content. I also will try my hand at planter farming, which is scary but I really want to try!
I’m going to get out and walk more this spring, I’m missing the sun so much this winter 🥶❄️
We are going to watch my son graduate from the Navy in the spring. Super excited!
I don’t have any plans for spring. Love the cover! 😀
I am praying that I will be able to see my family this Spring as I have not seen them since 2017. I have had 11 surgeries since June of 2018 up to now. I was unable to go to my Mother’s funeral in 2019 because I was in nursing rehab due to 4 broken bones in my ankle and 2 in my left foot. I was unable to go to my niece’s funeral because of COVID. My husband and I both have preexisting conditions that we have to be concerned about. So please let me make it this spring or at least sometime this year!
Mini vacation with our grandsons. Enjoying the outdoors!
We are looking forward to spring we are looking forward to
We are looking forward to putting our new vegetable garden and flower beds and warmer temps and i can use my new swing chair and read!
My plans are to work on my new house that I will be closing on in a month. I am so excited to make it my own!
My plans, now that we are TRUE Empty Nesters, is organizing the bedrooms that were just vacated, eventho both still have lots of items that still need to be moved. Also to empty boxes and shred very old paperwork that is no longer needed. I’m looking forward to travelling in June and July for our grandchildren’s birthdays.
I am going to redo my front and back plant beds with a rainbow of perennial flowers and go back to NY to visit family after a year in my recent move to Florida
Sadly my spring will kind of suck as i am going to have surgry to remove growths on . my ovaries and uterus. so my spring wil be focused on recovering and getting well. Thank god for good books to keep me company
I’m going to Puerto Rico to visit my grandsons. I am counting the days. They move away from in May and I was devastated but thanks to technology I get to visit with them on FaceTime. Not as good as a real life hug but they look so very happy that it’s all I could ever wish for them. After 18 inches of snow last night I might just decide to stay 😂
My Spring plans are to renovate my daughters bedroom. She’s 15 and wants a more “grown-up” look. Excited to see what we can do. Thank you for the giveaway chance!
Sounds like a lot of work. Hope you enjoy it and are successful with the veggies. I’m hoping to finally take a pandemic vacation.
No plans for spring but hoping to travel sometime this year, maybe the summer! Excited to read your new book!
I’m one of a small group of people who produce the 4th of July activities in our city. We are all volunteers and the City doesn’t pay for any of: the morning playground games, the amazing parade, the live Concert Band performance, and the 25 minute long fireworks show with choreographed sound track. I’ve been involved for over 25 years and am the program editor (for 10 years!) We are celebrating our centennial as an organization, so everything will be bigger and better than years past. We haven’t been live since 2019, though we did produce a expansive program in 2020, and a smaller one in 2021. So, my plans are to work on the program and continue my trustee obligations. Wish me/us luck!!
Unfortunately I don’t have any plans for spring. We are still slammed at the hospital so I’ll probably be working!
Love the covers! Congrats on new release! I don’t have any plans for Spring yet but I will probably read more books and spend time with my husband and 5 year old daughter.
Just want it to not be dark when I get out of work
I do have some plans for spring! I’m hoping to travel to Paris for a celebration! Hopefully Covid will not put a stop to my travel plans. When I get back, I will be going to my nephew’s wedding!
I have no plans for spring just the usual to get it ready for summer
Love the cover! I haven’t thought that far ahead so no plans
I don’t have real plans for Spring as we are trying to save for a house. I also have a crazy workload for school. It’s weird being in college at 37 with a bunch of teenagers but everyone has been great so far! Books are my escape when I need a break from the choas, ha ha. Hopefully summer will be better, and I can take a great vacation to the beach!
No plans really. Maybe get some reading and writing and journaling done. 🙂
My plans for spring are very boring. I plan on working and helping keep my son on the A honor roll. By making sure he has everything he needs to succeed in life.
This spring my husband and I will celebrate our 16th anniversary. ❤️ Our oldest will graduate high school. For the summer I’m looking forward to quality time with family.
I just plan to enjoy the warmer weather and the flowers blooming.
Spring plans are to help my middle child pick which college she will attend next fall. This means more visits to campuses and lots of discussions.
I’m looking forward to seeing my daughter perform with her theater group.
I am looking forward to the warmth and sunshine……and planting all my flowers and herbs.
Oh and if the pandemic decides to ever slow down maybe hope a plane and be able to cross a border to see family and my nephew and what will be my new niece who is born this spring.
My plans are to at some point to have a week with just me and my daughter. Just a girls week. Since she loves horses I’m going to take her to my friends farm to ride. That and just enjoying life and getting more JA Huss books
I have no special plans
Just working and hoping to get my old barn cleaned out so it can come down.
Going on a vacation to Hawaii! I can’t to finally travel again! Thanks for the chance!!
I plan on redoing my bathroom cabinet. Also would like to take my Granddaughter up to Mackinac Island this year
My plan is to read read read. I love reading and spending time with my kids. We are planning a trip halfway across the country to visit grandparents this summer so we probably won’t do much this spring. I hate that it’s been 2 years since I’ve seen my family due to Covid and we are going to fix that this summer.
I’m really looking forward to reading the entire Creeping Beautiful series. I’ve waited because I’ve been reading others; and true cliffhangers aren’t my jam.
I’m planning to help care for my new grandson who was born last night ❤️. I also really enjoy gardening and spring is my favorite time of year. Anytime the weather will permit, I love to be outside. One of my favorite things to do is sit in my porch swing, read a good book and let it take me away. 😍😜😢😧🤯🥰
Thank you for writing this series! As soon as I read Creeping Beautiful, I was sucked in and I definitely don’t want to get out! I plan on starting Gorgeous Misery on Kindle and listening to the audiobook very soon.
This spring, I’ll be getting ready to move my elderly grandma in to live with me. She just turned 82 and she needs someone to be her caretaker because she can no longer be independent and live on her own. So that will be a lot of work! Other than that, I’m trying to live a more healthy life, so hopefully I’ll be continuing with that on the middle of all the craziness soon coming my way.
Btw… February 15 is such a great day. It’s my mom’s birthday!
My plans for spring is to finally finish school!
My plans for Spring and things I’m looking forward to are one in the same and they are: vacation at the Lake, Spending time helping Mom & Dad, Having More time for myself doing what I love to do like reading writing for fun, reviewing books and enjoying the sunshine.
Get out of self imposed quarantine because COVID is under control. You think that will happen, that it will get under control by then?
I’m looking forward to warmer weather in spring so I can start my planting my garden. I also can’t wait to start mountain biking again!
I’ve been procrastinating for about a year now due to health issues and moving between countries. So I’m relaunching my hospitality software in April and I will be traveling to Mexico, Dominican Republic and Spain to meet with clients (the last country is just an excuse go back and hang out with my friends, visit the grave of someone who was like a father and passed away recently and sorting stuff that I have in storage. I will also be eagerly awaiting for book Four (4) of the Creeping Series (priorities)
Can’t wait for spring! Will be working out in the yard and soaking up the sun.
Besides relaxing whenever I can, I also plan to clean out and declutter my house.
I work full time (more than full time, probably), although we’ve been on maximum telework since March 2020. So the spring will be more work. And my daughter, who’ll be 20 in August, is taking (another) leave of absence from college and will be home. She was able to get temporary grades for Fall 2021 (rather than F’s) and was given until May 1 to complete the work. I’m always worried about whether she has the right mental health team, has been diagnosed correctly, or if she’s on the right meds. I am so frustrated with her because she is more than able to do the work. Over the holidays I got to the point of “sink or swim” with her because we’ve done everything we can. My outlet for frustration is audiobooks, especially yours! I know you work very hard, but you also have the gift of imagination. This spring I need to learn to take care of myself more.
This may sound weird but I’m looking forward to getting hernia surgery. I need a hip replacement but the hip surgeon says I need the hernias done first. So I’m looking forward to that because I NEED MY HIP REPLACED PRONTO!!! Like I said….weird. Lol
Other than those surgeries, I’m looking forward to spring sooo much because along with spring comes warmer weather!
Thank you for this opportunity. I love to read and/or listen to books!!
Well compared to many of you my Spring looks downright boring. We’ve had Covid go though our family this past week so I’ll be using Spring to catch my kids up on all their school work. I’ve also got some Spring cleaning to do and my husband will be having surgery so I’ll be busy taking care of him afterwards. Thank you for this opportunity. Reading romance is my favorite hobby.
For spring i hope to finish my education semester with A’s and looking forward to travel! …anywhere😉
My plans for Spring is to go and meet with my friend again. It involves a plane, too many km, a change of country, and another language… But it so worth it to be reunited!
I’m looking forward to seeing my grandsons that I haven’t seen in 2 years.
Spring.. hopefully heading back to Montana and going back to work. Our production got pushed so fingers crossed. I’ve spent the past few months remodeling and deep cleaning my house so I’m ready for an actual work break.
I am excited for the Spring! I do not like winter and with my autoimmune disease, I find it hard to move. I am currently working on healthier me and losing weight. Spring means I can start moving and help my weight loss (other than diet). I am also looking forward to visiting a very dear friend. It may be bittersweet because it may be the last visit we have. But Spring is my favorite because winter ends!
This spring I plan to go on my first vacation with my boyfriend. We have been together two years and I vacation bi annually with my college best friend but he always misses me so much. I am still thinking of what we can do in Miami so suggestions are appreciated but I can’t wait. I am also changing careers this spring and I am hopeful I will have options that take me towards my dream job of being an event planner. Wish me luck!
Enjoy the nice weather, clean out my closets, and celebrate some family b-days!
Already have my copy on audible. Planning on vacation with my daughter & lots of reading!!!!
I’m looking forward to a girls trip. Not sure where or when – we can’t decide – but it is definitely happening!
My plans for Spring is a vacation to Northern Michigan .
Me too! I’m going in July, though to visit family.
For spring? I’m hoping to have some of my life settled!! .im going to be a first time grandmother….to twins!!!!!!! I’m so excited.
My little grand babies are due end of August.
Love the cover! No special plans for spring; just to enjoy the season and whatever it brings, really.
I’m looking forward to lots of trips to the theater, as well as my new custom couch arriving.
No set Spring plans yet. Start getting organized for the kiddo to move away for College. I’m so not ready for this.
My plans for Spring are to visit my family hack home. I’ve been living in NC for almost a year and I can’t wait to see everyone back home in Puerto Rico. Thanks so much for the chance!
I want to visit my mother. She is 85 and in the hospital and I want to see her while I can.
I am hoping to get out and plant in the spring! I can’t wait to plant some spring beds and get some seeds started! I love when it starts getting green again!! Thanks for the great giveaway and the covers and blurbs look Awesome!
Greetings Julie! Like so many others, I absolutely love your writing and style; I hope whatever creative muses you have never fail to keep you inspired! Your books are my guilty pleasure. Spring, for me, is when I vow to deep clean my house and try to not put it off for summer or fall … sometimes it works. Wishing you all the best and I hope you receive half the good feelz from your fans as you provide. If so, you’ll be in better shape than even you can imagine! xox – Karen
I am just going to try and stay healthy.
I plan on spring cleaning for sure my house really needs it! Also, spending time outside with the kids since we’ve been stuck in the house due to Covid and snow. I’m hoping to plant some flowers in the front of my house near the porch & I think the kids would enjoy helping. Plus, of course reading but I never stop reading so thats a giveaway. I honestly can’t wait for spring I hate the snow & cold weather!
For spring I just want to thaw out! It’s been a cold winter and I fucking hate winter! In June I’m looking forward to a visit from 1 of my oldest and closest friends and his wife. Then in July I’m looking forward to BB! Can’t wait to FINALLY go!!!
Gorgeous covers 😍. My plans for spring are getting back to my outdoor walking routine! Can’t wait for nice weather again.
Nothing set in stone but it’ll include a weekend getaway or two, spring cleaning, gardening and just enjoying the spring weather!
Good luck on the never needing to buy eggs again. 🤣🤣🤣 My chickens don’t lay at all during the worst of winter and I have been raising chickens for 5 years now.
My plan for this spring is to go see my first grandbaby who is due in April and get my 18 yr old son ready for his graduation.
My plans for springtime is starting a new job next month, doing some spring cleaning and donating whatever I don’t need, and definitely doing some grilling out!
Going RVing during spring break
My plans for springtime is to watch the flowers bloom and enjoy the sun. 🙂
I plan on working on some projects around the house this Spring.
My plans include spending time with my family, attending Writers on the River in July and hopefully Wanderlust in Sept. Thanks for the chance!
So far it’s a staycation for us unless the hubby decides he wants to go somewhere.
my plans for spring is to get my veggie and flower beds ready for planting
I’m planning on going on a cruise! Hopefully!
Putting up a greenhouse and planting our own veggies. Prices are getting ridiculous.
No plans for spring yet. I would love to be able to visit family. Thank you for the chance!
This spring I’m going to have a tea party! I used to have one every year for my friends and family, but haven’t been able to do it for a few years now. Looking forward to getting out my china and making all sorts of yummy little treats. We’ll have it on the patio with lots of flowers. It makes me smile thinking about it.😁
I am already looking forward to spring. Too much snow here for my taste. I’m hoping to do some more home renovations. I’m a do-it-yourself-er and even do my own demolition! ( lol My hubby still can’t get over the fact I took out a wall by myself ) This coming year I want to tackle the bathroom and turn it into something awesome!
I’m planning on attending my daughter’s wedding in Spring.
This spring I have a trip to Mexico planned with some girlfriends. Fingers crossed it actually happens!!
Finally going to go to Disneyland this spring, taking my kids too. Live a bit over an hour away and have never gone LOL I’m not fond of crowds :-/
I don’t have any specific plans for spring.
i plan to get the ground ready for planting and going to some baseball games!!!!! thanks for the chance
I’ll just be glad when spring gets here! This winter has been a nightmare. I can’t wait to be able to go outside without putting on 3 layers of clothes to keep warm. And, I can’t wait to plant my yearly sunflowers.
Hopefully Spring will Bring a new beginning for me with a new life and companion, I lost my husband suddenly from a heart attack, several months back and my life has been lonely. But God has blessed me in so many ways and i am and will forever be grateful. God is always with me, and has helped me every step of the way.
We’re remodeling our kitchen so I will be hoping to not go over budget and praying that we can survive not having a kitchen for 6-8 weeks!!
My oldest daughter is graduating from high school this June so we have a lot going on with that. We will be heading to Disney with the school in April too! Thanks for the awesome chance!
I haven’t really thought about Spring but there are a lot of things I would like to do to my yard.
I’m so ready for Spring. I’m meeting friends at Lori Foster’s RAGT early June and maybe heading to the beach with family in July. I’m ready for the sunshine turning the clocks ahead. I hate it when it gets dark at 5 or 6:00.
Finally taking a trip with my husband to California that has been postponed since April 2020!
Continue to read and listen to more audiobooks and can’t wait to listen to the last one of this series…enjoy the sun, more road trips and maybe take trip out of US.
I’m looking forward to the warm weather! (I hate the cold, but somehow live in the north?) I’m also ready for more book releases! Thank you for the chance 🙂
No specific plans for me. I am disabled, so options are limited with Covid being worse than ever. I have autoimmune illnesses, which make it difficult to g
I’m looking forward to having my home project finished, at least ll the importante stuff.
Want COVID surge to be over so I can go wherever I want this Spring. Want to go Up North to the International Wolf Center and the North American Bear Cnter.
Nothing definitely planned for Spring yet but maybe going to visit family in Missouri! Just hoping for a great 2022 with as least stress as possible 😅
My plans for Spring is to go on nature walks in the warm air. Right now it’s too cold to be outside.
I have plans to be a camp host with my mother in law at Milford lake state park this spring and summer. Me and my other half and our two children also. My 14 yr old son Shane has scoliosis surgery in April but other than that we will be out there living in the camper. We are so excited and can’t wait. Thank you so much for the chance at your giveaway!😊
Celebrate my birthday in March
Spring – Looking forward to taking long walks without freezing. Also mowing the lawn rather than shoveling this white cold wet stuff.
My plans are to get our new puppy house broken and keep my sanity and my kids fed, clothed and acting like good human beings. The usual for me. Lol
I don’t have any specific spring plans, oddly enough! However, one of my goals is to get back into sewing and quilting, which has fallen by the wayside over the past several years. I have numerous quilts to work on and would really like to do so. I also have some landscaping work that I need to pay some attention to before the summer and it’s heat arrives.
Visiting my daughter and her husband in SoCal. Thanks for the chance.
Looking forward to visiting my high school foreign exchange friend. She’s been visiting me for the last 30 years, so I guess maybe it’s my turn to finally visit her in Norway.
My niece is getting married, so I’m excited for that.
Awesome cover, can’t wait to read your new book also. My plans for Spring are to start my seeds & get them in the garden. This is always a relaxing hobby. With all this COVID our family had & my brother passing from it, we are ready to finally get together & see each other; it’s been a long 2 years… Hopefully, a VACATION too!!!!
Get outside and do some yard work go for walks at the local park. Play with my granddaughters. Thanks for the chance.
Hoping to enjoy a couple of getaways. Don’t know where yet, but dying to travel. Even if it is a weekend in Seattle. Maybe Disneyland!
Gorgeous covers! Looking forward to planting seeds for flowers and veggies this spring.
We have a fairly significant remodeling project to finish over the next 3- 4 months. Didn’t think we would be doing any traveling until the fall, but I just happened to be talking to a cousin Friday and found out about a trip her & another cousin are making. It is an all inclusive 14 day motorcoach tour of England, Scotland and Ireland. We’re trying to get on the waiting list for this and would leave on June 1st; flying into London and out of Dublin. Gotta give it a shot! PS- Very envious your 40 acre homestead
I am taking my daughter to Florida and to Disney while we are there for the first time! She doesn’t know yet, I’m going to surprise her with a box of goodies when it gets closer. She just turned 5 in December and is going to be so excited!
No particular plans. I’d like to regain some semblance of a normal life, but that’s not really up to me. I’m doing my damnedest to get healthier this year, and at least that I can control… mostly.
It’s been nearly a year since my Mom’s unexpected passing, she lived with my family for the last 15 years. We all just closed her bedroom door because it was hard to see it. My twin sis and I, along with my two daughters have set a date to clear it out finally. I can hear my Mom yelling that it’s way past time so we’re gonna do it. I’m also gonna get my first tattoo on the one year anniversary to honor her.
I want to try planting some different veggies in my garden this year.
I am going to get another tattoo for my late husband. I’m going to have his fingerprint and mine placed as a heart over my heart. I want a piece of him to always be with me.
This spring I’ll be shopping for some new house essentials since I’ll be moving in the fall!
We are planning a trip Togo camping with our Daughter and our Bonus Son and grandsons we will be in 2 cabins but we are looking to have a lot of fun fun fun!!
I plan to try growing a wider variety of vegetables in my garden this year.
Hope to see grandkids, start to downsize, and find a smaller place to live.
Damn…that’s a lot! I feel like a slacker now. Crafting as much as I can to hopefully no be as behind as I was this last Christmas. Otherwise no real plans for spring.
This Spring my new half sister that I found on ancestry.com will be coming back to visit me in Atlanta from Florida. We found each other last May after my late mother passed away. We have met face to face 2 times and connected right away, family also love her. She and I are so much alike so I look forward to getting to know her even better.

I have been living with my parents because I have been in a wheelchair and they have a ramp but pretty soon, I’m going to move back to my own house with my boyfriend. I will be so happy to have the privacy and sexy time that we both deserve. Thanks for the chance!!
I made a 2022 bucket list of new things to try and new places to go. I’ve already marked off 2. Axe throwing (which I loved) and taking my kids to San Diego zoo.
I made flight reservations last week for Southern California in March. I haven’t been there since before Covid hit, so excited to get back down and enjoy some beach time.
I’m looking forward to spending time with my grandson outdoors! He loves playing in the park in the Spring.
Need to organize all my cupboards and sort out what I can let go or keep. Been putting it off for ages with all types of excuses.
I am looking forward to spring so I can paint and finish my library/office. I don’t like painting when it’s cold. Also looking to do some major spring cleaning.
Hey… thanks so much. For spring I’m hoping we get go out a bit more and visit my pops we’ve missed him so much and with his health declining I’m hoping we can all go out on a few trips to the park and a ride to the beach for the day just making memories and stopping time. Have a great spring too.
I am looking forward to planting all kinds of flowers and watching them bloom as the spring turns to summer.
Love all of your books! I’ve been sick at home because of my heart and I’ve been catching up on some of your books. I love creeping beautiful and can’t wait to read the whole series. I will definitely use the GC to buy more books. You are a great author and I love how a lot of the books/series relate to each other. You have a gift!
I don’t know about plan for sprung, but here in Jamaica it’s mostly summer to me, but for this year, finding a good job is at the top of my to do list, making friends with someone amazing and I would love to do some dancing classes and baking classes. Also would love to fall in love.
I’m hoping this spring things with Covid will settle down and we could travel south. Our winter has been super cold, some days with -30 wind chill factor. So I’m craving the warmth, sun and surf somewhere down south. We usually go to SC but I’m thinking we might want to try FL this year. It sounds like you’ve got a super busy spring and are settling into your house/farm nicely!
I like to think I’m ,well, a little crafty Soo, I plan on doing some decor crafts & things for spring. Last year I made a bird house condo out of an empty cereal box, paint, limbs from the yard and moss, McGyver style. Hee,hee Not sure yet about this year. Any ideas?
My plans for the spring are waiting for Lovely Darkness then reading and rereading the previous books so I can enjoy the whole Creeping Beautiful series. Also reading the second book in the Monsters of St. Mark series. What could be better than enjoying these books.
Spring is my favorite season and I’m looking forward to the warmer weather and longer days. Spring is prime beach weather here in FL, and I love getting up early and walking on the beach before I settle in for a long morning/early afternoon with a book. I’m also going to TX to visit my sister and her family for Easter so I’m really excited for that.
Looking forward to the cold weather and snow being gone. Seems like a long winter with all the Covid restrictions here in Canada. Once the snow is gone will get our garden beds ready for planting and clean up the yard. Hope to travel to Alberta late in the spring. Thanks you for your generous giveaway.
I’m not really sure what we’re planning for Spring. We just enjoy each other’s company.
Spring means getting ready to go into the wilderness where I spend six months out of every year. Just me and the dog so spring means I can take my jacket off on my daily hikes when I put on my headphones and listen to more JA Huss. I’m a recent convert to this author but so far I’ve been through Into Her, Three Two One, Rook and Ronin, The Company, started Original Sin but set it aside for later and now I’m into the Anarchy series. Cannot get enough.
I plan to catch up on all books on all my favorite authors. This is my time. I’ve been taking care of my hubby who every year since 2016 has had major health issues from cancer to heart surgery, stem cell transplant, stomach surgery to colon section removal. I’ve been working on my first book over this time. Coming up with ideas, plot points and what I invision but have had virtually no time to write. So I’m hoping to get some time to do it and read read read!
Even though I don’t really have any huge plans for the spring, I’m still anxiously waiting for the warmer weather and the plants to bloom. The winter months are hard on my pain and I hardly get out because by the time my husband gets off work it’s dark and colder and I’m ready to cuddle up in bed with my electric blanket! With spring life comes not only to plants but also to me. I’ll be able to crawl out from the electric blanket and live a little life. It may be a little boring. Bingo is the highlight of the week, but it’s life. Looking forward to that life.
I’ve been in the medical field forever and now I’m officially a nurse! Plan on passing my state board’s in spring and then starting a new job with my new official role! Also have plans for lots of reading!
I’m looking forward to my sister visiting with my nieces and nephews
Thanks for the chance!
There’s a lot of stuff I have planned…
1) getting my garden up the way I want
2) get healthy for my surgery, I’m getting a hysterectomy. Woohoo no more periods!!!
3) perfecting my crafting, sewing, candle making, resin, oils, etc.
My body really took a hit when I got covid (recently). I had the mild one too. But sheesh, breathing is so unbearably hard. I had asthma and another lung condition, also I’m a diabetic.
Once the ground thaws (at this rate, maybe June?? It’s been dreadfully cold here) I’m planning my veggie garden and hope to get some digging in soon.
Hoping to do some rockhounding and a bit of “rock swapping”. I need some dirt therapy!
I hope we can go back to Hilton Head. This year is our 27 th anniversary. We are celebrating our 4 th grandchild born in November and our 5 th due in July!!!
I’ve got a few concerts and weddings coming up! And Apollycon in July that I’m super excited for!
Can’t wait to be able just to go outside and enjoy the weather . Would love to go visit my grandkids more , Plan to work on painting and small wood projects. Spend a lot of time reading outside.
Had you asked me last week, the highlight of my Spring would have been a trip to a national showcase with my sons soccer team. But just this past weekend, he has decided to not continue on with the team after this month, so right now my plans for the whole year are up in the air. Pretty much our entire lives revolved around this team, so this will be a huge change for us to sort out over the next few months. But it does give me WAY more time to read!
My plans for spring is to get out on the golf course and swing my new clubs!
My husband and I are writing our third book in two years, thank you COVID for giving us the time and opportunity to write them! Nothing fun like your books, but we’re still looking forward to reaching people like you do 🙂
I don’t have any plans for Spring, but I am excited for my daughters Summer wedding.
I wanted to share that we are hoping that we can get to see my brother and my dad again this Spring. They live in Kentucky, and we are in Virginia, so we do not get to actually see each other often. I am really excited for it, thank you very much for the awesome chance!
My plans for spring are to restart my garden.
Our plans are to get our raised beds ready to be planted. We live in northern Nevada and have to be careful for late frost. But in the next week or two we will start seeds indoors. Fruit trees will need to be pruned and trimmed. I have a lot of different types of roses and I want to propagate. Living in the desert can challenging. We are not allowed to raise animals in our HOA, so I want to raise enough vegetables to freeze and can. Still waiting for the berry bushes to produce enough for jam.
You sound very busy! Good luck 💜
No plans for spring. Taking it one day at a time and spring seems a long ways away, especially with talk of snow this week.
This spring I am homeschooling my three littles for the first year so we are going to plant a vegetable garden in our back yard and teach them how. I would also like to put some sunflowers and neoprene foliage into my flower bed as well.
No plans as of right now. I have some painting that needs to be done that I have been putting off.
My husband and I are excited for Spring Training in AZ. We plan to catch a few games while we visit family.
Hopefully take a small trip up to the Maine area and just generally getting outside more in the fresh air.
I hope to be do some home reno on our first house with my dad! Making memories! Have a great year!
I’m looking forward to your new releases and spring. I will be listening to audiobooks, pulling many weeds, and waiting for the garden to bloom.
I plan to do mini updates to my house. Carpet needs to go. Time for tile & wood flooring! Walls need some fresh paint & new base boards. I’m really looking forward to this. It will be a whole new look.
I’m hoping to apply for Counselling and Therapy course. I want to help people live a happy life
Hi!!!! Thank you for this wonderful opportunity! This spring I would love to do some house renovations, celebrate my daughter and i’s birthdays with family, ENJOY SUNSHINE and warmer weather!!! I miss reading on my porch on warmer nights ❤️

Summer here in Australia, Just laying on the beach with a great JA Huss book or two
Home maintenance’ painting and replacing the molding around the interior doors in our home. Hopefully my hubby and I don’t yell at each other too much during this project 😉
Thanks for the chance to win! This spring I’ll be taking one vacation a month! Hopefully everything works out for each one (Covid can suck it) but it’s looking like a busy few months for me! Otherwise I’ll be working at the hospital or home with my boys. I’ve introduced my best friend to your books and we absolutely LOVE the worlds you’ve created with your writing! Excited to keep reading them.
Paris baby! I’m celebrating the big 40 and (fingers crossed) will be able to travel there this Spring. I was an Art major and it’s always been my dream to visit the Lourve. I’m so excited!
I’m hoping that my sister in Law get well From Cancer and that we get some rain in California .
