SAVAGE SAINTS IS LIVE!
Now in Kindle Unlimited!
SCROLL ALL THE WAY DOWN FOR THE GIVEAWAY AND NEWS!
A wood, a buck, a nymph, and stone.
A way into a satyr’s home.
A door appears, the nymph walks through,
And now their lives begin anew.
Pell learns to love pants.
Pie learns to love magic.
And Tomas learns to love a woman.
Pie and Pell are like two peas in a pod. Meant for each other, madly in love, and living their best lives as Mr. and Mrs. Monster of Saint Mark’s.
Pie is dreading her new job working for the tall, dark, and sleek Modern Minotaur. And the irony that just a few weeks ago she was demanding that Pell allow her to get a job to support the sanctuary, isn’t lost. It’s like the gods are playing with her on purpose.
Pell is still his grumpy self but he’s got a new job as well—babysitting a bag of magic rings that seem to have a mind of their own. No matter where he hides them, they will not stay put. Add in a doorway he can suddenly see and a new power he forgot he had, and well… things are getting interesting.
Tomas is a brand-new man. Literally. His new freedoms are just the beginning of his adventure into modern humanity. Not only can he leave the sanctuary, drive a truck, and spend time with the people in Granite Springs—he also learns how to cheat the rules.
Everything has changed for the better. But when Pie discovers the secrets of magic, Pell uncovers the real purpose of the rings, and Tomas falls in love with a Townie… things change again.
Only this time, they’re the ones with all the power.
Savage Saints is a fun, romantic romp through an ancient curse. It is book two in the Monsters of Saint Mark’s series and must be read in order. Written by New York Times bestselling author, JA Huss, under her pen name, KC Cross.
AUDIOBOOK UPDATE – This audiobook will be released in late summer. Maybe August, but I don’t have a date yet. Narrators are scheduled to start recording in May/June.
“The most fun you’ll have in a book this year!”
“Monster romance is now a thing!”
When Pie stumbles into a monster’s 2000-year-old curse she has no idea that her life is about to get a bazillion times better. Damaged Gods is a fun, romantic romp through the world of ancient gods and hot monsters where fangs, and horns, and hooves are all part of “the ultimate package”.
Now… if only her new monster would put on some PANTS!
Pie just wants to be ordinary. But she’s homeless and the talking imaginary bird who lives in her pocket makes “fitting in” nearly impossible. So when she stumbles into a job opportunity as a caretaker of a place called Saint Mark’s Sanctuary, she figures, why not. It’s better than overstaying her welcome on an old friend’s couch.
What comes next is a grumpy monster who won’t wear pants, a friendly hot dude who lives in the dungeon, and a 2000-year-old curse that she is now in charge of breaking. And somewhere along the way Pie realizes that being extraordinary is… maybe… her thing.
Damaged Gods is book one in the brand new Monsters of Saint Mark’s paranormal romance series and is filled with laugh-out-loud magical moments and a rule book that suspiciously sounds like a manual for an “adult” fun club.
THIS AUDIOBOOK IS UH-MAZING!
If you love audio and romance then you are in for a TREAT!
Perfectly narrated by Jason Clarke and Hathaway Lee!
You will NOT stop listening!
BOOK 3 IS NOW ON PRE-ORDER
THIS BOOK WILL BE IN KINDLE UNLIMITED ON RELEASE DAY – DECEMBER 6, 2022
I just did a pretty long update in last week’s newsletter but I wanted to make sure some of the info in there for put up on the website.
First, the first phase of my huge website update is complete. It doesn’t look much different yet—but that’s because I haven’t had time to make new graphics for the redesign. But that’s coming. The biggest updates were all done on the backend. I got a brand new private server so the site is much faster now. Plus, it’s got tech-y bells and whistles that you probably don’t care about.
A couple notable new things though – ONE – I have a dedicated Audiobook page. This lists all my audiobooks under each author name and each one has a sample you can listen to! You can also sort the books by series.
JA Huss Audio can be found HERE
KC Cross Audio can be found HERE
Some of the KC Cross books are JA Huss but I put them over there because they are Sci-Fi or Paranormal Romance.
There are also some series links in the TOP MENU now. If you hover on Desktop or open the menu on phone or tablet you can see the series. I will be doing a lot more in the future, this is just to get started.
I’m also working on the new Shrikebikes.com – which will be a new PRIVATE forum to hang out on. Shrike Bikes at Facebook will not go away, but you never know when a tech billionaire might want to shut you up. So it’s best to plan ahead. I anticipate that the forum will go live some time in May. It’s really just a matter of me fucking around with the software and setting up forums. I’ve never used this particular forum software before, so there’s a little bit of a learning curve. I would also like to get a custom theme for it, but that might come later.
In book news – obviously Savage Saints is out today. And it’s already in Kindle Unlimited. So if you were waiting for that, you can grab it at the link above. Very sorry that my publisher and I could not get the audiobook out in time for the ebook and paperback release, but scheduling is scheduling. It will be out in late summer. Maybe August, but I don’t have a firm date yet.
Damaged Gods is still on sale but that sale will be over on Monday, May 2. So if you want to grab it for 99 cents so you can have it forever instead of borrowing it from KU, now is your chance. There is a link above.
Book Three, ROYAL BEASTS, is on pre-order everywhere. This book will release on December 6, 2022. When Damaged Gods released I had a lot of complaints about waiting 9 months between books. Which is not reasonable. 9 months isn’t that long. Especially when this is a side project for me. My main genre is dark, contemporary romance. So I need to write those books too.
If you’re wondering why this third book will be 8 months out it’s because I literally just finished Savage Saints about 3 weeks ago because I wrote 3 other books between Damaged Gods and Savage Saints. (Vic Vaughn is Vicious, Gorgeous Misery, and Lovely Darkness).
And I have spent every day since finishing Savage Saints writing my summer dark romance release. I will have a cover reveal and pre-order up for that soon. I am anticipating a late July release – The audiobook narrators are already on the schedule, so there should be no problem releasing the audio with the ebook and paperback for this one.
Then, the very moment I am done writing that (which is in about 2 weeks) I have to start MY VAMPIRE BOOK! That will release in October and those narrators are also on the schedule. So plan on a simultaneous ebook/audio release for that too.
So I will not even be able to start Royal Beasts until late June. Then it has to go to the audiobook publisher in September and audio production just takes a while. So, the soonest we can have it ready is December 6th.
I think that’s all I have for news. Except for my farm. I have SO much going on at the farm and I will be posting lots of updates on all that stuff coming soon. (I’m getting BEES this weekend!) 🙂 And you guys, my frickin’ hive is so damn cute, I just can’t. I painted it up all custom and I will have a picture of it this weekend. I’m going to be putting it outside on Friday.
I also have horse news coming—Annie is settling in nicely and I will start training her to the Endurance saddle I bought in a few weeks. I’m still waiting on my fucking fence. I have a little shed coming tomorrow that I will use for a milking barn and tack and feed room and the goats will all be here on May 10th!
So there will be lots of fun things coming this summer!
I think that’s all I have for now. I hope you enjoy Savage Saints. I’m really, really, really happy with this series/story. I love it so much and I’m so glad I took a chance and started writing it. I see many, many books in this world coming.
DON’T FORGET TO ENTER THE GIVEAWAY! Usually I do a $50 giveaway but this time I’m doing $100. Inflation man, it’s fucking stupid. $50 does not go far anymore. Sad.
Anyway, thank you and enjoy the MONSTERS!!
THIS IS A SOCIAL MEDIA FREE GIVEAWAY!
Enter to win by leaving a comment below – you can say anything you want. But I would love to get a tiny update on what you’re up to these days!
What I’m up to these days? Very busy wild food foraging. Dandelion greens are tender and sweet this time of year, the unopened buds are fantastic in omelets and casseroles, or as Mock capers.
I so look forward to your books.❤
Can’t wait to put my garden in!!!! Awesome weather is here!!!!!
I’m trying to keep up with all the things in my life and dealing with getting old. I’m struggling with the regression of the rights I fought so hard for in the 70s. It feels like everything is out of control. 🤷
Looking forward for the rain to stop here in Vancouver so I can plant some flowers
I’ve been super busy with my new position at work. We also just came back from a Las Vegas vacation.
I finally enjoying some nice weather here in WV.
I have been loving this warm weather I am out gardening and planting my huge veggie garden too
I’ve just been working! Doing tons of chores today. I will also be starting my seeds inside today and getting my outside gardens ready! So excited. I love seeing your farm animals! TYFTC.
So…What I’m up to these days? I’m trying to get my college degree this year and in a few days I’m going to another city ( bc we don’t have a specialist here) to see a doctor about a surgery I might’ve to do. Let’s just say I’m a bubble of anxiety and books are my getaway hahahaha. That said, I don’t like negative thoughts so I’m really hoping for the best and the saying “everything happens for a reason” has been my mantra. Btw, books really have the power to make me feel better so thank you and other authors for writing something that has the power to make someone’s day…AND I’m rambling and this is getting longer so I’m gonna say bye and thank you for asking.
Today I did my first beef Wellington! It was good but I spent all day doing it! So next time I’ll find someone to do it lol! Thanks for the oportunity
Hey Julie, when I was in Florida we stopped at Barnes and Nobles and I found out they don’t sell your book. We were disappointed as we wanted something to read at the beach.
Thank You for all your giveaways. You are an amazing writer and person!!
This is so exciting! Thank you for sharing! We just recently moved from AZ to FL so it’s been quite a change! Still trying to settle in & get my bearings on a new place. But happy to report my books made it here safe & sound! It’s great to hear from you!
Going to try and wait for the audible to be released! Going back to school so I won’t have as much time on my hands.
Preparing for summer and having both kids home while still working from home. Should be interesting. Also gearing up for Book Bonanza 2022! Can’t wait!
Finished up your “Company” books. Loved them. I am currently out of work – in the “donut hole” of being too young to retire and too old to hire. I keep applying and waiting to see if I get an interview. Cleaning up the gardens and getting ready to plant at the moment.
This series is amazing! Not much going on in my neck of the woods. Getting out and about again, spending time with friends. Taking in a signing or two. Planning future trips (including Banff Alberta Canada which I’m super excited for). Congrats on your release
I am loving Savage Saints. I’m also completing the Creeping Beautiful series this week.
I have loved everything of yours that I have read so far. Some more than others, but you never disappoint.
I’m looking forward to a road trip this summer to visit family back in OK and TX. I will be listening/reading all the time.
I’m so excited! Royal Beasts releases on my birthday! Thank you for working so hard. I certainly enjoy the fruits of your labors!
Happy release day, Julie!! I am loving this series! All of your updates about books and the farm are so exciting! Things are heating up here in Vegas, which means the scorching temps will be here very soon. That means more time spent inside reading 🙂
I’m taking long walks, I love spring! Thank you for the chance!
Enjoy the warmer weather and trying get my yard cleaned up. Enjoy your
Today is my birthday! ! I love all your books and I can’t wait to start this series “Monsters of Saint Marks”. I always wait till you finish the series before I start them, but I may start this one right away 🙂
Happy birthday 🎉
The goats are adorable! I am working on converting a room in my house to home library room. Exciting project!
YAY 🤗 Happy Birthday, Lucille 🥳🎉
I hope you enjoy your special day 💙
You had me at vampires. I hope there’s a bossy grump in the mix.
When there is an apocalypse, we bitches, must protect Julie at all costs.
Awesome! I thought the next book to this series was coming out in November. This is a wonderful surprise. I’m looking forward to reading it. 😊 What I’m up to these days is being in the “now” because the past and future doesn’t exist. I’m working on self-realization. What is real and what is not real and that time doesn’t exist either. Deep shit like that. 😂
Can’t wait to start reading “Salvage Saints”. Love your books!
So happy summer is here. Just wait it would warm up fast and no wind, so I can spend time outside walking and working in my yard. 😊
I am so happy that it is spring. Love seeing the flowers come up.
My front yard is filled with tullips!
Happy release day! I am coming out of a funk – the last six months have been rough – and looking forward to sunny days and good books to read on my roof deck.
Just finished The company, looking forward to Monster series, and can’t WAIT for the VAMPIRES !!! Keep them coming Julie!!
Hey girl!! Loving the book! We just got a new roof on the house, looking forward to some warmer weather in New York! My son is graduating from college in 24 days. My other son is graduating high school at the end of June!! Crazy!! Time flies! Sending much love to you and your beautiful animals on the farm💜
We just had my sons 4th birthday yesterday. So after all the stress of party planning, I’m taking a couple of days to just read and relax. (Not that I need an excuse lol)
After finishing the Creeping Beautiful series I have been lost trying to find something interesting to listen to. I listened to Lovely Darkness 4 times then finally started another series that is entertaining enough. I have also tried to get out in my new community and find new friends. I recently moved from New Jersey to Connecticut and it has been challenging to find friends. I joined a women’s group that is fabulous and am looking for a book club. I haven’t found one yet but I haven’t given up yet. Until next time BITCHES!!!
Love any and all giveaways for your books! Always appreciate the possibility. Happen to be up to my neck in doctor appts, mostly for my mom, but was lucky enough to recently have laser surgery on my eyes (due to cataracts, but I’ll take the silver lining) as I used to be practically blind, and now my eyes are closing in on 20/20. It’s bizarre, since I’ve spent my entire life unable to see without contacts or glasses & now I can wake up in the middle of the night and see the clock and wherever I’m heading. Sounds silly, but there you go. Looking forward to a reunion I can’t actually attend but bc of zoom, will be able to see vicariously and talk to friends I haven’t seen in a while in a large group. And that’s likely much more than you were looking for when you asked for an update!! Thank you again!!
Wow, that’s amazing Pamela. I’m so happy for you. Sorry about your mom though.
Same with my eyes! I was 20/800 and 20/1300 (yes!) before I had LASIK. I did that when my kids were very young because I realized if something happened to my glasses I would be utterly helpless. I felt the same thing — amazes that I could see the alarm clock when I wake up in the middle of the night. The quick onset of nearsighted was kind of a surprise – never had it before because I was so myopic I later had cataract surgery in my early 50s. Had the second eye done a few years ago, and just had the first lens revised – they had put in the wrong diopter the first time! I had Posterior Capsular Opacity (CPO) both times too. Easily fixed, but it sucks when your vision starts to blur. Anyhow, just wanted to welcome you to the club! Best of luck with everything! Barbara
Planning my son’s 16th birthday party and also listening to Gorgeous Misery!
I am doing fine and trying to get my gardens spring ready which means a lot of raking. In between raking and family duties I am ready to start the Junco series.
I love your updates, they’re always so full of information, not random crap just to fill up space. And also, girl, you take your time writing! I don’t know how you have time to “farm” with all these books flying around your head/into your computer. You must type a million words per minute. We will wait for the goodness. And if some people have a problem with that, they can suck it.
I stayed up til after midnight hoping to download savage saints but had to finally admit defeat but it was the first thing I did when I woke up!!! Love this fucking series so damn much!!!! I can’t wait to read your new vampire series too!!!! So friggin excited to see what you do for the world of vampires!!!!! I’ve read vampire romances since I was a teen and I seriously can’t get enough of them! Congrats on your new release💋💋💕
I am currently on countdown for my first cruise! 17 more days!!! Thank you for your generosity. Happy release day!!!!!
Yay! 🎉 Happy release day! Can’t wait to read this! 🎉
Well. Most of my days, I’m dealing with the pain and sickness caused by my chronic conditions, but I’m trying not to let them deter me. I’m still working a trilogy that spins off into the first book series i plan to publish at some point, mainly for myself. I still have plans for a kids’ book series and some design stuff. But atm, I’m mainly focused on healing and getting to a healthier state of body, mind, heart and soul, to continue making progress on my goals. I’m always so glad to see your personal and professional updates. I love watching people achieve all they strive for. Keep up the great work and congrats again on what I’m positive is another smash success! 😘💕
Happy Release Day! 🖤
Preparing for a getaway soon. Going to the Great Smokey Mountains National Park in Tennessee in May. Love it!
Hi. We just moved and now we are renovating the new place.
We have been remodeling the kitchen. It has been a fun project but also so stressful lol. If is almost all back together now. Thank goodness. Other than that, my daughter is about to graduate!
What am I up to? Well today it is work 👎. But over the weekend spent the days with my best friend power washing her patio and filling in the gaps with polymeric sand. Our next job is to mulch the front and backyard in prep for a summer in our (blow up) pool and watching movies on our screen in her yard by the fire.
I am going to save your new book for vacation May 13 if I can resist it that long. I am not sure I will be able to but I am going to try!
Thank you Julie for being you! ❤️
I’m just recovering from being diagnosed with pulmonary embolisms in both lungs! I’m on a blood thinner now for 6 months and after 2 weeks I’m feeling well. I’m 8back to my little retirement job merchandising magazines today.
Meanwhile, I’ve been listening to true crime podcasts and re-listening to Gorgeous Misery. I’m very anxious for the audio of the new book in August.
Happy Release day!!! I have been working my way thru your audiobooks!! I am on the Mr Series now , I started with Rook and Ronin . I love them as much as I loved reading the books the first time!! I’m catching things I missed before!!!
Thank you for the chance 💚💜
Happy Release Day! Looking forward to reading this!!
I’m so happy to get this book. I just finished Damaged Gods last week. The delay between books isn’t unreasonable with ALL the projects you do. Even if you didn’t do so much these projects are your babies and you need to be happy and fulfilled with the finished product. We are starting some home improvement projects. Updating the outside of the house and then maybe a bathroom and bedroom face-lift.
I’m going to be living vicariously through you with all your animals. I would be in heaven at your place!!! Thanks so much for all you do!!!
I just love to hear about you farming adventures. I went to gym yesterday and started my adventure with Ronin and Rook
Hi, congratulations happy release day. What im up to is being a mum to 3 teens which is like being a referee LOL. Thanks so much
Hi! I’m so excited! I just had surgery on my knee last week and I have been waiting to read this. Thank you. Lots of exciting stuff in the works! Congratulations!
So excited for this! It’s been on my TBR list! <3
I am planting new palms trees to replace ones that were damaged in Central Florida frost. I love hearing about your farm.I wonder where you find the time to do all you do.
Hi. I’m busy with work and getting ready to watch my daughter get her university degree in a few weeks. I love that you are sharing your ranch life with us. You are awesome and brave. Bees are so important but they make me nervous. Killer bees in AZ don’t help with the anxiety.
I can’t wait to start reading book 2, you’re just an amazing writer. I absolutely love hearing about your farm and seeing your pictures. I had my own mini farm but have had to down size it as my kids keep me to busy to spend enough time with the animals . I now just have 3 goats left that are so spoiled you could mistake them for pet dogs haha. Congratulations on your release.
Just finished listening to the whole Creeping Beautiful series, and just WOW!!! Blew me away. I will be traveling to Denver this weekend to attend my daughter’s bachelorette weekend and help her pick out her wedding outfit! Will be so glad to be back to the area I love best after moving to the South to care for elderly parents 5 years ago!
I love J A Huss and her creative mind. She keeps you in the edge on everything and when you think something is going to happen one way, she totally blows your mind and goes a total different direction!
Went from 3 inches of snow to 80 degrees here in Michigan all in one week. Anticipating more snow today. A perfect time to start your new book. Hope there are more Company books in the future, too.
Happy release day! I can’t wait to listen to this book! I unfortunately just can’t find the time to sit and read anymore so I will be anxiously awaiting the audio version 😁 And let’s see, I’ve been working. Work has been extremely busy so I have been working lots of overtime recently. Also trying to fit in more hours for teaching yoga and meditation for brain health. Slowly been working on projects at home, did set up 3 more raised beds over the weekend, those will be for all of our berry bushes (raspberries mostly! So good.) We are also getting bees in May but got everything set up over the weekend so we are ready. Our chickens are in full on egg production mode now! Super exciting 😁 Love all your giveaways, thanks for the opportunity and thank you so much for writing such amazing books!
Congratulations on all your new stuff. Live all your books, recently found Audible and I’m currently listening to Bossy Brothers Joey. Jonny is next then Alonso, can’t wait for that one ❤️❤️❤️
Happy release day 💗💗💗
I’m really looking forward to shrikebikes.com!
I hate Facebook (Even though I use it everyday lmao). I haven’t been in Facebook jail up to now but it’s so dumb. Being able to talk freely will be much better ☺️
I’m just taking each day, one at a time. I never know how I will wake up each morning due to chronic illness so it’s hard to make plans. I’m waiting on appointments so will hopefully see someone soon.
I’m 37 in June and I keep waiting to feel like an adult but it’s not happened yet. Currently attempting to parent a 10yo going through early puberty so we’re kinda screwed lol. We’ve been arguing less since I changed my parenting approach but she’s still my mini-me and we both have a quick temper 😅
I’m terrified of bees/insects but I’m really excited to see their hive and can’t wait to see more of your animals. Life would be totally miserable without animals and I’m so grateful to have three cats 🥰
I can’t wait to hear more about Annie. I’m obsessed with horses and miss riding so much. I’m living vicariously watching my daughter ride every week and I have a trek booked for my birthday. I can’t do it very often so it’s extra special when I can 🥰
I’m really looking forward to all of the new books on the way! I always wait for the audiobooks. They’re worth every minute 💗
Also, I’m impatient af but I wouldn’t dream of bitching about 9 months in an author’s group (or any group!). I’ve been waiting YEARS for a book. Years. Just wtf lady. Hopefully she will choose her words more carefully from now on.
I’m just rambling now. I get carried away lol. Thank you for everything you do for us. You are very appreciated. Fuck the haters 🥰
Congratulations on the release! I’m loving this world and savage Saints was a top read for me!
Hi Julie! Hope all is well with you and yours. I am getting ready to attend my baby cousin’s wedding this weekend. He is 28, but still the baby. He has been waiting 2 years for the world to open up again so he and his beautiful bride can have their special day and share with their families. So happy I get to be there to celebrate with them.
Congratulations on the release! Spring has barley shown her face in Upstate New York and I am dying to get out in the yard and start planting my flowers! I can’t wait to start the book!
I just want to say The Damaged Gods series is so cool, I love sci-fi and fantasy and yours is the greatest. Next week I head to Florida for the week. Hopefully we will have some good weather. I love to walk the beach. There is a huge flea market in Daytona, I hope it’s still open we haven’t been there since Covid. Hope you enjoy your farm it sounds full. Love your updates.
Looking forward to reading all of our newest stuff now that I am able to start reading again! It was a rough 2 years after a car accident caused so much head pain that I could only manage a couple of pages before it hurt too much to read any further! I managed only 2 books total in 2020 and 8 last year. After starting to work with a personal trainer who specializes in physical therapy this past December, I have made some major improvements and I think I will easily double (maybe even triple) last years count!
I have been working 3 jobs sadly my 4th one shut down. but I get through the days listening to books. depending on the length I listen to 1 to 2 a day!
Reading as much as possible to escape the reality of bills lol can’t wait to read this one!
I’m currently listening to the Harem Station series, and I’m blown away by your imagination!!! Keep it up! Every time I finish one of your books, I’m on to another immediately!
I don’t get up to much seeing as I’m all disabled and shit, so I’m very much looking forward to reading and listening to all of your future projects. I love your farm and can’t wait to see the arrival of your new animals and bees! Lots of videos and photos would be lovely, thanks.
Are you getting a milking cow or are you milking the goats? I love that you’re creating a site apart from Facebook and the loony censorship. I’ve been searching for a job and nobody wants me. I get money on the occasional cake orders here and there. I was a stay at home mother for about 16 years and don’t have much to show for it, other than 4 awesome kids. Anyway, I have Covid-19 a second time. Woo-hoo! NOT! I’ll get through it though.
Hi…im here just trying to get more health having a bit of medical issues. Also just trying to get over a breakup. So your books have been helpful to get lost in another world. Thank you. Keep them coming please
I am crafting as always, well…trying. My creativity seems to have taken a hiatus. I’m also getting a little work done on my apartment. New toilet and flooring in the bathroom and new kitchen flooring. It has had carpet from even before I moved in, and I’ve been here 18 years. Yuck! I picked out a large black & white check. I love the 50’s retro, and the kitchen already has an old 40’s-50’s stove. I got to go to the first auction of the season this weekend, and “won” some things. I love auctions, especially when I get a good deal. Then to and alpaca shearing party. This was quite fascinating. Three guys from Colorado travel around in a minivan with their equipment and go to farm to farm. They jump out, set up, fetch the alpaca one at a time, shear them and bundle the wool/pelt in a bag, clip and grind their teeth, trim their hoofs and they are done with an animal in like 3-5 minutes. When they are done they scrub their equipment and load up just as fast and are gone. It was amazing to see. And I’ve seen sheep shearing before since I had them as a kid, but this was so fun to watch.
I wish we could post pictures. My 4yo has been begging me to help plant flowers. So, we went outside and really looked at the ground and we came up with some areas where we could put flowers. When I went to do a little research I found out that the major city next to us was putting in a wildflower area for monarch butterflies I went looking for the seed because there were a few that flew through here last summer. So we’ve been preparing the ground and spreading seed!! I love activities that I can do like this with my daughter that is educational.
I can’t wait to see more pictures of your farm!!
I’m packing to move. We’ll to move my stuff to storage. My wicked step mother has thrown me out of the house I’ve been renting from her, for no releasing other than shes a b*tch. I’m turning 50 and homeless because I can’t find a place. So that’s the major in my life.
I’ve been chaotically busy these days 😊😊 I’m currently rearranging furniture at home, because of course when you move into a new home you don’t get it right the first time. My oldest two daughters are in a musical this upcoming week and so running around for rehearsals has been time consuming (thank you audiobooks!!). Our chickens are giving us lots of eggs and the dogs just love keeping an eye on them.
I am SO EXCITED about the vampire book. I’ve been wanting to find a way to start my 19-year-old daughter on your books. She’s a voracious reader, but particularly loves vampire books (Twilight, gobbled my Sookie books, hasn’t read BDB yet). OMG, I am SO STOKED!! I was going to have her read Junco because I thought that’s what she would enjoy most of yours, but now I’ll just be patient. Wheeeeee! <3
I’m doing better, so thanks for asking. I’m recovering from an upper right
lobectomy of my right lung. I had cancer. I am not a smoker either, so second
hand smoke is real. My whole family smokes. Great giveaway!
HAPPY BOOK BIRTHDAY, Lovely! Oh gosh, these days…ah, stressful! My daughter graduates high school this year so, we’re trying to get everything planned out and paid for. It’s giving me anxiety and impeding my ability to read, lol!!!! BUT, the book is amazing thus far!!! 🙂
Looking forward to summer vacation, school will be out in nine days. I know the kids are ready and so is the staff.. Well be trying to catch up on my reading than.
Currently my status is trying to make lemonade out of the lemons just thrown at me while trying to keep my sanity as I homeschool my Autistic teenage boy. I am in dire need of an escape…in the form of a book and what better book than one of your amazing books?! What an incredible giveaway!! Thank you so very much for the chance!!
I have been a huge fan since I read the Social Media series back in 2016! I love getting lost in your stories and during Covid, I found reading to be wonderful for my mental health. Thank you for all the genres you write which are amazing!
Taking life day by day. I absolutely loved Savage Saints with Tomas a true standout character. Who knew monsters could be witty and sexy? Congrats and happy release day.
Happy release day!!! I love this series so much! It might be my favorite?? It’s right up there with Junco and Tragic/Manic/Panic. I don’t want to bring it down with what I’ve been up to, because none of it is cheerful news, so I’ll just say I’m so happy for these books and I’m excited about the new ones, especially vampires!!!!
What am I up to? Started Savage Saints and hoping to finish tomorrow. Also, shopping for dresses for a few weddings I have coming up and having 2 girls, I get to shop for them too. Yay
My problem is this. Any audiobook of yours I have listened to so far I’ve loved and just like with people in life I love more than others. Saying that, this is my problem, you have so many books I have yet to listen to or read as some of the ones I’ve Loved more, I keep going back to, to listen again. I must learn control. Looking forward to this new series. Happy Release!
Happy release day indeed. I can’t wait to hear about your experience with the bees, we are thinking of getting some as well…
Congrats on the new release. Just finish Savage Saints and thoroughly enjoyed it.. I have also been reading a lot. Spring is my favorite time so have been spending time in the yard refreshing my flowers. Take time for the small things in life…be well.
Congratulations on the new release, these books sound amazing and I will need to read them. I have been trying to get as much reading as possible in between work and family life but I am trucking along. Thank you for this chance.
WOW, 3 books in the damaged Gods series! Very awesome! I can’t wait for the audios to come out.
I’m so excited. Loved the first one. Have downloaded number two and put number three on my wishlist!!
What am I up to you ask? Reading, working, crafting, and surviving!
Congratulations on your new release! My family and I are looking forward to warmer days and spending more time outside.
Just went remote and changed positions at work. Trying to transition is proving difficult since everything takes time to get IT to fix. Loving listening to audiobooks while working and waiting!
I am very busy these days! Working 2 jobs. One is at a family care clinic & I’m also a tech in our local ER. I live in Florida but in the beginning of June my sons and I are moving/driving to WA state!
Happy release! All I’m doing is making my Summer house maintenance to do list. Fun!
Wow do you ever have a lot going on, Julie!!! I love the farm updates and pics and how much fun you’re having with it. As for my life, I’ve phoned about 60!contractors thus far (and heard back from like 8 of them. Grrrrr.) I need to have helical piers installed in one retaining wall and to replace other retaining walls. Read big bucks. This absolutely sucks because I’m disabled and POOR and my car is on its last leg. Pray that it will last another year or two for me so that I can pay off the walls and save up again. Sigh. At least my dog still lives me! Lol.
Congrats on your new release! I have been working and getting ready to move 🥰
Just working and listening to I am Just Junco. This girl!!!
Waiting for it to dry up and warm up so we can start planting this year’s crop. Enjoying the hell out of our new granddaughter and reading.
One of my twin sons is graduating from college next month! The twin in CoSprings will graduate in December! Headed back to Chicago at the end of next month to prep my childhood home for phase 2 of a renovation! Happy things are returning to new normal.
Congrats on the release! sounds amazing. Wanted to wish Lucille a Happy Birthday!
My sister and 10-month-old nephew came to visit during Easter. I missed them a lot so it was a great surprise.
Happy Release Day, Julie!!! I’ve got my copy & can’t wait to start reading SAVAGE SAINTS !!!
As for me, I’m just doing my usual: editing and proofreading, hoping one day I’ll get to work with you!!!!
My sister and 10-month-old nephew visited during Easter. It was a great surprise.
Excited for your latest AND the promised vampire book, one of my fave genres. Your farm sounds amazing! Have a great spring 🐝 🐴 🐐 💐
Congratulations on Savage Saints! I’m doing the same old , usual stuff. I am considering some gardening. I’ve attempted a few times and I had a thumb of death, I’m hoping to change that. Happy Release Week!
Congrats on your new book! I am loving these monster romances. I haven’t been up to too much, unfortunately. I have a chronic illness that sidelines me a lot; it is something most doctors do not know about and a struggle to find treatment, with only 1 FDA approved medication in the US, and that one a dangerous one that I can’t take. Anyway, when I do feel well we have tried to go over and help my elderly mom with her gardening since she loves it but can’t really do it much any longer. Last week we ventured out and got some cookies from a new cookie place in town and that was nice (what small pleasures! LOL) As the weather improves hoping to get out and visit people more, when we can be outside with them since myself and my husband (who has a blood cancer) cannot change getting COVID. Luckily we have successfully avoided it all this time, knock on wood! Have a great spring and hope your release is awesome!
I loved reading your update. I can’t believe you can write so many books in one year! Your mind blows me away and I’m so glad you share it!
Hi Julie 💕💕
CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR NEW RELEASE 🤗🥳🎉🍾🥂
I’m so very excited for you and all of the AMAZING books you’ve got coming our way 😍 I DEFINITELY can’t wait for those vampires 🖤
Keep doing the phenomenal job you’re doing, and don’t let anyone bitch at you for the timeframe in between each book!! You’re doing the best that you can and you’re doing great 💙
I wish I could tell you that I’m getting ready for Spring, and doing some relaxing and exciting things, but I’ve been pretty tired. I’ve got chronic medical issues I’m trying to deal with, my mom is disabled, and we’re trying to care for my terminally ill stepdad.
Its been tough, but books are my escape. I usually try to read while he’s resting and your books have really helped me ♥️ Your amazing characters and beautiful stories are exactly the medicine that truly helps!!
I love hearing about your farm and animals ♥️ Maybe you’ll show us some pics in your newsletters 🤞🏻I’ve really GOT to see your bee 🐝 hive 😊
Thank you so much, Julie 💜 I hope I didn’t ramble too much!! Thank you so much for the amazing opportunity in your very generous giveaway ♥️ I hope you’re having a wonderful week 🥰
~Rhonda B 💙🦋
Oh my God, Julie. How will you have time to write with all the new animals and bees, etc??? Lol! It sounds like your summer is going to be busy.
My life is way less hectic. I just have to deal with staff relations, which is stressful enough when you have a couple people who don’t get along and one instigator.😤😠 And home repairs… they never seem to end. Getting a new roof and putting in solar panels. So that will be interesting.
Thanks for all your hard work and entertaining us so thoroughly!
I am dying to listen to your audiobooks!
Julie! I’m in the middle of moving and decided it would be a great to start listening to the Company books for the 3rd time. Pop my AirPods in and got myself packed in a couple days!! Best part was I didn’t have to listen to my hubby and kids bitch about the move! Zoned out and packed up! Highly recommend this method for moving! 😉 Love from the Albuquerque!
I have come to the conclusion you have learned to sleep with your eyes open and still functioning. This feat could make you rich if you cared to share your secrets. You do amaze. You ask what I am doing. I am harvesting pieces of broken vintage jewellery I find in lots at auction. In early fall I will start making Christmas trees with them. Takes lots of jewels and jewellery but taking those pieces and solving the puzzle of how they will connect and cover the tree is its own kind of madness but I love it. Be well lady, we need you in our lives.
Julia, first I have to say, I absolutely love your writing. I just can’t seem to get enough.
Now after my little gush, an update on me. I live with my daughter, son-in-law and 6 year old grandson. Added to the menagerie is Tater, a 16 year old pug; a beta fish named Garla; 2 bunnies named Max and Willow; 7 layer hens whose names I can’t keep up with because my grandson keeps changing their names. Add to that, 18 meat birds, thankfully they don’t get names because I would get too attached to them. And we just got 2 new bee hives, as we lost our hives last year.
My daughter has a greenhouse and she’s been busy growing and selling her veggie starts here locally. You would think we live on a farm, but no, such is the life of the Urban homestead.
Thank you for the chance and I’ll get back to reading,
I just came back from another doctor’s appointment. I’m still stuck in London but I could be at a worst city and this city is pretty slick so there is that. Anyhow, downloaded Savage Saints, ordered some room service and voila!
My goal is to finish reading/listening to all your books by the end of April (maybe beginning of May? I’m almost over). You are keeping pretty busy, love your energy. Can’t wait when I’m well enough to keep up.
Take care and happy release day!
Congratulations on your new release and on your new website! It seems it’s a very exciting time for you with a lot of good things happening.
My husband and I are trying to take time for ourselves to go and do. We’re not sure what it is that we’re “going to go and do,” but as age starts to slow us down we’re determined to try to live what life we can. It’s difficult as I have spent the last 22 years dealing with surgeries, procedures, pain, and fatigue all related to injuries to my spine. Luckily, I have a wonderful supportive, husband and family who are my support system.
As for my personal reading goal for this year I’m trying to focus on reading books by a handful of authors who I love but haven’t been able to read everything they’ve written. In 2022 I’m trying to give priority to books by my favorite authors. This doesn’t mean I won’t read something by a new to me author, but when I consciously pick a book it’ll be from one of my favorites. I’m sure those impulse reads will still find their way into my heart and my currently reading list.
Take care! God bless!
Congratulations on all that you have done!! Your a wonderful woman to do what you do!! I’m just working 3 jobs and trying to keep up with the inflation!! Lol 😎😎😎❤❤❤
I have been trying to get a lot of stuff done around the house and get all my appointments over before school ends in a month. Once summer break starts there doesn’t seem to be any time left to do anything I had planned! Love the updates about your farm & can’t wait to see your bees and their hive!
Well it has been crazy here as well, though not as much as what you have happening. After 20 years we tore out our above ground pool, that was buried 2 feet in-ground, and are currently waiting for that hole to be filled in since we can’t do that ourselves. I am also, right now, waiting for a Pest Control person to show up and treat for carpenter ants, which I’m told can be as destructive as termites, WTH! Lived here 30 years, so I guess stuff is bound to happen!
Julie, I have enjoyed all of your books. I think I have read/listened to all but the junco series . I enjoy hearing about your history, having been raised in Colorado, and so many things are familiar., and your farm and animal acquisitions I listen while I work, while I crochet, cook, drive and pretty much all the time. Keep it up I look forward to any new things you post..
Spring has finally arrived and I’m spending all my free time in the garden and reading of course.
I’ve been spending lots of time outdoors enjoying the spring weather!
We just took the camper out for the first (of many) camping weekends last weekend. I didn’t sleep real well b/c of all the sounds the camper makes and trying to listen for the four-legged kid to make any noises that she had to go out. Hubs just left for his work rotation in AK today and will be back just in time for our niece’s high school graduation and his sister’s retirement from teaching after 25 yrs. June will be busy for sure.
Thanx for the chance. Looking forward to getting the 2nd Monsters book.
Love your covers!!!😍😍♥️ Life is always crazy, I have 2 small children so always on the go!! I am also a nurse at an OBGYN office and it’s short staffed most days. I tried to talk my husband into letting me just start home and be a book blogger 😉😅 one day, that will happen!! I am ready for warm weather and sunshine! Hope you are well!♥️
Working. Working and thinking what’s going on with my life.
I love you 🙂
Getting ready for high school graduation
Enjoying daily walks with your audible books, keeps my neighbors wondering why that crazy lady is laughing to herself! Working my way through all your wonderful books. Currently on pretty nightmare.
This is the year I’m focusing on myself. I’m working on my mental health, trying to lose weight. I’m also getting to know my biological dad’s family better. We’re planning a few visits.
Happy spring and wishing it would rain not far from you in Westminster. I am reading the Anarchy series now and Savage Saints will be next. I sometimes think “what happens if I run out of Julie books?” But lucky for all if us they just keep coming!
I have been good, just trying to teach my 15 year old how to drive, which is extremely terrifying. Congrats on the new release! Thank you for the giveaway chance!
We just had a blizzard, so trying to get through all the snow, LOL! I’m retired so looking forward to warmer weather and being outdoors, camping and fishing.
Oh, listening to “Angry Gods” right now on audible. Love it!
“Damaged Gods” a great audible!
I’m just anxious for some warm weather so we can enjoy the new deck we had put on late last fall. In VT, our springs vary year to year, but our winters are always long. I also have several sewing projects that I’ve been working on. I do quilting and other crafty type projects when I’m not working or reading, which, let’s face it takes up a lot of my time! I love to read!
I’m setting up my new Kindle, and making a list of books I want.
Congratulations on your New Release ❤️
We just celebrated Easter this weekend.
So many cooking and eating delicious dishes, visits from family and close friends.
I enjoyed to have house full of people and opportunity to visit some family, some neighbors too.
Thank you for this awesomness ❤️
Happy Release Day! Very excited for the next installment. I’ve been binge reading/listening to everything again. I went back to Tragic and started over so I could visit all my old friends again. It’s takes a hot minute to get through the entire Huss catalog. I’m currently about 11 hours away from finishing the Junco audio. I had forgotten how frickin epic that story is! I can’t wait for whatever comes next!
Relaxing after tax season overtime has ended at work and deep cleaning/disinfecting the house after our 13-year old twins got a stomach bug that is circulating at their school. Now I have time to catch up on reading 🙂
Happy release day! Coming to the end of the school year, so there’s that!
I cannot wait to get started on these. Currently listening to Junco and tomorrow is another giant step in my treatment. I have my last radiation therapy. I love that you write these wonderful complex worlds. Going back and listening to and reading them again I still find things I missed the first time around. Looking forward to the vampire series. Take care.
I am retired and reading. Thank you
I am waiting to move to closer to my daughter.
I am getting ready for a get away to the beach.
Looking forward to my yearly visit to my dads!!!!!
I’m just getting over a stomach virus. Just started reading the Anarchy series and loving it. Can’t wait to read all your books.
I haven’t started this series yet, but they are in my library. I am finishing up Creeping Beautiful before I start Damaged Gods! Love you Julie!
I’m really excited to read book 2 , loved the first one!
I love your writing. I would one day love to have a farm like you. I have always been an animal lover. I am just starting Creeping Beautiful. I’m a little late to the party. Thank you for sharing your talent.
Waiting till the series is complete to binge. What have I been up to? Well, with spring comes new birds and right now is migration time so I’m out photographing and trying to build my bird life list. Getting harder the longer I do this but I did manage to add 4 in the last week.
After 2 years of dodging it, the “Rona” finally got me. So I’m in bed, watching TV, reading when my headache isn’t too bad, but mostly sleeping. Can’t wait to feel better and enjoy the spring weather!
Not so patiently waiting for warmer weather here in Kansas. I babysit the grandkids and can’t wait for us to be able to be outside. After they leave I look really forward to reading and a ball game on TV. Thanks for the chance?
Been working my ass off since my secretary retired in December but I have a new replacement who’s position got upgraded and she is a badass!! I’m so freaking happy to have a partner in crime so I can get some shit done! I’ve not been reading as much because of all the chaos but now I’m so happy to have a new book to read by KC and getting into the spring activities we enjoy! Good to hear you are too! Love ya Julie!!
I’m helping my sister get back on her feet. I let her kids come live with me back in September so she could go to treatment. She’s out and doing great and I’m proud of her. She’s almost got enough saved up to get a car. She’s been working two jobs.
Wow! I so love the covers,to your beautiful books, happy release day so so excuted for you im new to your books im so excited to read them!
Thank you so much for this amazing giveaway!
Happy Release Day!! I’ve listened/read all of your books so far and loved them all. Looking forward to all the new stuff you talked about above, some exciting things happening. What’s up over here in Florida! Work is crazy busy as always, but looking forward to a weeks vacation with family visiting from Jersey and then getting ready to have rotator cuff surgery in June/July. I’ve gotten a bunch of your audiobooks recently that i only read so i will be recovering listening to your books. Actually really excited to listen to Rook and Ronin series and the company through the Creeping Beautiful series all on audio since i read most of them. I’m sure i will get more out of it the second time around. Best of luck and looking forward to more pictures of the farm animals!!
I am so excited to start reading Savage Saints!
Happy Release Day!!! 🎉
Ive been catching up on everything! Finally got myself a vehicle, gave my daughter my old one. Putting up a new fence, price of lumber is insane. But overall we are patching up our home. It needs a lot of love 🖤
Congratulations on your big release day! I really do you think you just keep getting better and better!
What have I been up to? Working, spending time with the family. Been doing some journaling trying to get into the whole self-care thing. I’m getting older and have realized it’s time I take care of me. We’ll see how it goes. I’ve got a lot to learn but I’ve got a good support team, so yeah, I can do it! My life doesn’t sound as fun or adventurous as some comments posted but it’s nice to see such a great group of people up to some fun stuff.
I’m in Virginia watching my granddaughter since my daughter had to return to work…i live in New York and i’ve basically have moved in until the school year ends….she’s a first grade teacher…so i’m in baby heaven..so short a time that they’re babies…am loving it!
What am I doing these days? Well, I’m a 45yr old mom of 3 (27, 24, and 16) and memaw of 2 boys (7 and 2). Since I’ve retired from life as a “pole artisan”, years ago (14yrs of dancing), I completed college with an Elementary Ed degree and I homeschool my teenage daughter. I also help to take care of my grandsons when needed. I’m not always busy but when I am I swear that all that shit happens on the same damn day! Ugh! I know life sounds “pretty easy” for me, since I stay home, but holy guacamole!!!!, sometimes I’d LOVE to go back to work, but then I remember that I hate everyone so it’s best to stay home! Lol I hope everything is going well with your donkeys and your horse! I would love to see pics with you riding sometime. Xoxo
HAPPY RELEASE DAY🤗🤗🤗
I’m currently re-listening to the entire company series as I try to finish out the school year without completely loosing my shit. Thankfully these children are saved from that fate by me getting an hour or two a night to escape into the amazing world you created. Thank you so much for sharing your absolute brilliance with us ❤️
These days, just with and getting ready for my graduation tomorrow with my Associate degree in health science is been a long time coming. There were times I wanted to quit or give up but I kept going and with my graduation I also made the dean’s list again so I’m so proud of myself.
Right now just trying to help my son figure out what his next step is… senior in high school 🙁 Sadly he didn’t get his first choice of college so now trying to figure out which plan b
Just reading and I’ve finally decided to get back on track health wise last week. Did some meal prepping this weekend a pain in the a$$, but it makes up not having to do much after work. Im really looking forward to your Vampire book!
So you say you want a tiny update to what we are up to! OK so had a good weekend got a new tattoo so excited its a death moth! My hubby’s boss offered to sale his Harley to him and carry the loan so we are getting a new Harley which will be mine! So we can take our 1st Harley we got & give her some much need love. We got her back in 1999 so she is almost a classic lol!
So, I read Savage Saints. Soooooo good btw. Im up to about 125 books for the year. Obviously I have no life. My daughter broke her wrist & missed her college volleyball spring season. She wasn’t too upset. Im ready for summer to be here. And December is a really looong time to wait. But my TBR is still growing. So, unfortunately I’ll make due. Happy farm-lifing. 💋
Happy Spring! Excited to be wrapping up my BS in the next week. Then I will be off to wrap up my MS by the end of the year.
What have I been up to lately? Celebrating 1 year cancer free! It’s truly been an emotional roller coaster these last couple of years. I finally get to take a deep breath, allow myself to relax and get back to the fun stuff. Thank you, for all of your books! I’ve read most of them this past year. You’ve kept me preoccupied through the crazy!
Congratulations on another book release 🥳📚🎉🎊
Congratulations on the new release!
I have to tell you that my eyes just can’t move fast enough to read and I have so many of your books to catch up on. So far I have not been disappointed with any of the ones I have read, When I start reading I can’t put the kindle down and just have to go till I finish the book then I go choose another. I love series, the characters almost become temporary family, Thank you, you have given me so many hours of entertainment and I can loose myself from all the cares and worries of everyday life 🙂
Just working, reading, and going to the movies.
Cant wait to read your new book!!
Liked the description of your series and looking forward to reading all of it.
Your book covers are on fire! So colorful and I really like them.
The cover looks AMAZING!! I’ve been great, currently 37 weeks pregnant, patiently waiting for baby girl to make her arrival
I don’t understand how you do it. Anyone who’s complaining about ‘waiting’ sucks.
The grounds thawed and even though it’s another month+ till last frost it’s time to start veggies and plant the peas kale etc outside. Wild times over here. Doing something wholesome like gardening while listening to your books is so much fun.
I love the covers as well. I am currently leaving to plan a funeral for my brother
I love this series!!! I’m so excited about the next book in December!! Thank you for being you!
I have been planning my garden for spring, digging up old stuff and just waiting on warmer weather. Love your books!
Julie your the best you have helped me in so many ways, just know, since I found you /your books and audio books it has helped me cope with life things I’m going thriugh it helps me escape
Thank you, thank you
Congratulations on your release of Savage Saints, which I can’t wait to read! Thanks for sharing it with me! I’m just trying to hole everything together, my daughter is finally out of the hospital, but she has to be on a low sodium diet. Do you know that everything has sodium in it and that is hard to find low sodium items in the grocery store…it’s driving me about crazy! Good think I have my books to escape in! Have a wonderful day!
Taking more photos for book covers, attending 2 book shows as a vendor (this is very scary and exciting for me), organizing Author Day for the Tennessee State/Wilson County Fair, AND I’m going to be a grandmother again!! I read Damaged Gods after seeing an ad on Facebook, and loved it! I’ve been waiting patiently for book two! So excited to start reading it. Congratulations on the release!
Congratulations on the new release! Can’t wait to start on this one, I have loved the series so far, as all of your others books that I have read! I have no big plans for the summer, but will be glad when it’s finally here! Weather here in WV has been crazy, snow on Monday, then 80 degrees the following Friday! Now we are back to freeze warnings, two days after I planted flowers!
I can’t wait to get my hands on this. My go to book is Damaged Gods, Pie, Pell, and Tomas make me laugh. I listen to them at work and while getting my garden planted.
The site looks lovely as also and thanks for chance. Been doing work mostly.
Congrats on release!!! I’m currently about to move so I’ve been doing some packing
I love hearing all about your farm/ranch adventures! I’ve been working on the stone wall surrounding my new raised vegetable bed. .We leave for vacation on Saturday. I plan to read Savage Saints next week!
Happy Release! It’s Spring here on the Eastern Coast of North Carolina and the weather has been wonderful so far. Everything is green again! I’ve been cleaning up the yard, weeding, and trimming the azaleas now that they’ve bloomed. In between taking care of the yard and my two Bernese Mountain dogs, I do lots of reading…mostly ARCs and then filling in with stories that catch my attention, usually dark, erotic, romantic, suspense stories. I read some rom-coms too so I get a break from some of the dark stuff. I’ve read a few PNR books and I’m enjoying that too. I really like reading all kinds of stories! When I’m not gardening or reading, I’m usually trying to clean stuff out and scale down. There just seems to be no end to all the stuff one accumulates over the years! I enjoy seeing all the pictures of your animals and your home…it sure looks like a beautiful place to live!
Huge Congraulations on your fabulous new release.
I am not really up to anything exciting,just trying to get through each day the best way I can without having a panic attack.
I have been helping to take care of my Nieces and Nephews while my siblings work,its been hard lately I am struggling at the moment,with my mental and physical health.But I am doing my best to try and lift myself out of it,so far I am unsuccessful but I will keep trying.
Reading and listening to audiobooks have been such a Lifeline to me.
Congrats once again and take care J.A Huss. Xx xx
I have read and/or listened to so many of your books and still have so many left to read. I don’t know how anyone can say you write too slow. lol Keep up the good work, your mind is amazing!!
I love your books! Thank you for keeping me sane.
The weather is starting to get warm and we are getting ready for a garage sale.
Happy release day to you!
Very busy clearing garden from a bunch of cut trees
Congratulations on your new release. Nothing new with me.
🎉Congratulations on your new release!
Congratulations on your new release!
Same old, same old here for me: basically working, studying and reading.
Congratulations on the release! I have been working a ton, however, I am in the middle of deciding if I want to make a career change! I’m just tired of the day to day and want to be my own boss. That first leap though is no joke! I am sick trying to decide if my family will survive on 1 income for now! So to keep the stress at bay for right now I have been reading like crazy!
Congrats on the new book! I am excited to read it over the summer.
Congratulations and gratitude to you on the new release! You are truly inspiring! I’m thoroughly enjoying Savage Saints and I’m looking forward to the audio version, hoping you’ll keep the narration team from Damaged Gods, especially Hathaway Lee.
Love this story. So very excited for more. Finished reading last night and Holy shit balls. Amazing wonderful kick ass. Thank you for sharing this one of kind story.
Congrats on this release! 😀
What have I been doing lately… fixing a water leak outside near some plants, planning to put in a couple of trees, made a hummingbird feeder… 😀
All the best!
Working my tail off like never before doing the occupational therapy thing with the littles, most with autism. Having just changed offices was from Hades but half my work is off-site. Which means–half my office is now in my car. Dragging all that stuff in a tiny 1990 Buick Reatta (look it up) is jaw dropping crazy, because the SUV is in the shop for another 2 weeks at least! All this while trying to get healthy.
Thanks, Julie, for being you! Are you going to sell goat cheese? Love that stuff.
I was just over on Amazon looking at the all the pretty book covers when I saw there was a new book out! I don’t know how I’m going to wait until the audio book (which are always the best part of the JA Huss experience).
I am just behind on life thanks to migraines and teenagers. How behind? I just read the email talking about this giveaway. We just had 2 go to prom last weekend. We thought we were prepared, but middle child woke up with a sty. He said he was going to prom, so he said he would just wear an eye patch. Well the eye patch we had is conical and didn’t sit well under his glasses, so after checking local stores for flatter ones and finding nothing, I had to make him one. I am not a sewing savant and I had just a few hours, but thanks to google for tips, I did it and he hugged me as they were leaving. My 18 year old hugged me of his own volition! This weekend my 17 year old daughter has her first ‘date’ with a boy who she exchanged numbers with at prom. I’m not sure how I feel about it yet. I will be having lots of cookies and wishing for margaritas while I try to get through it. Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mom’s out there, no matter what species their kids are.
Thanks for the chance. Just been working and taking care for the fam.
The goats are so cute! What kind of dog do you have?
Thanks so much for chance, I am moving well looking for a place to live. If you know anything about upper East Tennessee it’s gotten ridiculous to try and find one, so that’s where we are right now lol. Hope all is well your way!
Hi Julie! Not much going on here, just hanging with my kitties & training the new one to not tear up the house.
Hope this spring is perfect enough that everyone has extra time to read😁😁😁😁
Life has been crazy! I’m so thankful for family support because it makes that much easier to get through all the rough patches. I can’t wait for the weather to warm up (and stay that way…we had snow in may!) so I can go paddle boarding! I live on the water in the summertime 😎
Hi! I’ve just started a new world from home job and I’m really enjoying it!
That should say work from home.
My oldest son just graduated from high school last weekend on Mother’s Day, so I have been pretty busy with preparing for that. Now, we will spend the summer getting him ready to move on campus for college. Luckily, he is going to our local university (and my alma mater), so he won’t be far away. That helps my nerves a lot. lol
My younger son just turned 15 the end of February, so we are working on learning to drive. It is especially scary with him, because he is my wild child.
So my wonderful hubby got me a new Harley (or should I say it’s new to me) it’s a 2015 street glide special. It’s silver with lots of Willy G skulls on it! We went riding yesterday I did pretty good but it’s about 300lbs more then my 1999 soft tail was so it will take a little bit to get comfortable on it!!!
Love hearing about & seeing all your beautiful animals! Annie is gorgeous!! And I cannot wait for your vampire book 😍 one of my fave genres. JA Huss & vampires sounds like a literary match made in heaven 🙌🏼 Or should I say hell 😜 have a wonderful summer!
Congrats on your new release! Love the pictures of all the animals. 🙂
Thanks for the chance! 😀
I’m somewhat out of sorts, my husband is determined to find funding for his company, Quansor Corporation- we hope to move somewhere that will give his water monitor a start up. The waiting is what bothers me.
I’ve been extremely busy with nursing school and my school is no fucking joke. They require a 90% on everything (exams, assignments, papers etc) so I have no life but I’m grateful for audiobooks because I have a 45 minute drive to and from school so I’m relistening to the R&R, Company, Misters, Bossy, Creeping Beautiful world 🥰
I became an aunt again!
Love the pictures!!! Must be sooooo beautiful out at your house!!! Thank you for your amazing, sexy, suspenseful and ohhhhh so tantalizing books!! You have ruined me for any other erotic, romance…. Or Suspense writers!! Non can compare!!! Extremely excited for the new Vampire series!!!! I definitely need to get bitten 😉😏
Hey! Happy to read that you got your goats! In my little corner of the world, we are having a major shake-up where I work. .my boss is stepping down from her position as store manager…and just going to be a cashier! She has been with the company for 37 years, so it will be quite an adjustment. I am currently looming for a different job. It has just been too crazy for me to keep up, anymore. The one I am trying for will be a huge pay cut, but if I don’t have all the headaches lime I have now, I am taking ig.
I am helping my youngest daughter get ready for a banquet. Helping my eldest daughter choose which station and shifts to pick up for careflight. We just finished a soccer tournament with my youngest daughter’s soccer team that remained undefeated!! Great weekend
I love the goats. Their ears are adorable! Well after 3 years of wearing a mask I finally got Covid. I took the PaxLovid and it really did make it go away quicker. Now my life is back on track. I can’t wait to plant my spring flowers but we can’t plant here until after Memorial day. Sometimes it’s very hard to wait. I’m very glad the farm has come together. It’s been a joy watching.
It’s finally warmed up here in Florida enough to start using the pool so we’ve been enjoying that as much as possible as well as doing some much needed yard work. Still plenty more to do.
Hi! My reading time has seriously been diminished since I starting working from home two years ago, so I am looking forward to Memorial Day weekend when I can finally catch up on all of the JA Huss goodness that has been published. I also found someone at work who is a fellow Shriker and it makes me very happy.
Love your books! And I love goats! Raised Nigerian Dwarf dairy goats for years. Best of my life. Miss them every day! Enjoy them!
More time to read with retirement around the corner.
Congratulations on your new release. I’ve not had a lot time for reading for the last little bit I’m trying to get everything packed up to move and also clean up some too.
Congratulations on the book, the farm and arrival of spring! We are getting ready to celebrate both my sons graduating. It’s exciting and stressful!
Hi Julie, I’m happy to see your goats are home. I loved the video of Annie looking for the donkeys. It was so cute. And It’s so nice of you to share a part of your life with us. You are the only Author I have ever messaged, I like your no BS and say it like it is with no regard to what people think. We need more people like you in this world, it’s hard to find. I’m patiently waiting for savage saints to come out on audible,and for any future books.
Im a 63 year old grandmother(Nani) that finally has time to read or, as I prefer, to listen to my favorite Author. I’m enjoying helping my daughter with my grandsons. They are 16 and 13 and are so much joy to my life.
Loved the update and as a long time reader, I love how all of your books are twistedly different in all kinds of ways! But I will be team #FuckingFord forever. 💜
Congratulations on your new book! I’m just ready for birthday vacation next week to go see my family!
I have been busy with planning for the end of the school year, juggling how much time we have left with what needs to be taught still. Focusing on curriculum expectations and getting units prepped and ready for my grade 1/2 class, ensuring they get the essential concepts taught necessary for next year!
Love ur books sledge and claw was my first book certainly not my last Congratulations on all ur wonderful books I am finishing up ARC of Storm by A M Rose hope u have a great summer
Congratulations On Your New Release And Thank You For The Chance! 🎉🧁💖
Life Is Really Busy At The Minute I’m Coming To The End Of My Undergraduate Degree, So I’m Trying To Get Everything In Order.
Working on getting my garden around at our new house!
Preparing the vegetable garden, and filling the pots with flowers. The hibiscus which did no winter well in the house this year (probably lost two of the four), are now outside. Leaves are finally out. As is the sun. Yay!
I love your website! Going to Miami next weekend for a week! Long overdue vacation! 🥰 Enjoy ☺️
Lately we have been doing house upkeep. Cleaning-staining a fence (in 90 degree heat yuck), cleaning up flowerbeds and planting new plants. Getting ready to redo our deck with hopefully a screen in porch addition as well redo our kitchen. Big projects. We are taking time for ourselves as well. Several date nights and days. Also a lot of kayaking in our future as well as a trip to Alaska in September. Big summer lol
I’ve been sleeping a lot. After 2 years of avoiding it, I finally got Covid. Hopefully, I can read more this week!
Cleaning the house- never ending- having people over this afternoon to watch NBA.
Just trying to get through this life of mine one day (hour/minute/second) at a time. Looking forward to the new book as my own personal naughty mind getaway.
hopefully we are over our warm, cold weather in Ohio. it’s warm now, i have a sinus attack trying to get in yard get everything ready for summer. Loved your update and the pics.
Medical issues have been getting me down, but I sure as hell won’t give up. Cut back to part time at the regular job, and focusing on more pyrography (woodburning).
Hey Julie, I’m about halfway through Savage Saints and can’t wait to see what happens next. Spring has been a busy time both at home and work. My husband’s garden is progressing nicely with some crazy large jalapeños already and they are always the talk of everyone because we pick between 200-300 off 6 plants several times. They get hotter during the summer and continue to produce until the cold weather comes in. We’re also ripping carpets out of our bedrooms and refinishing the natural hardwood floors. Really excited to see the end results. We’ve had some pretty windy and pleasant days as well into the second week of May when it’s usually hot and humid so kinda different for us. But, this week is gonna be hot in the south. Fishing time is also getting worked in as time permits. Congratulations on all your farming endeavors!
Just got back from a work conference in Vegas. It was great to travel again 🛫
Busy finishing up the school year teaching Kindergartners and watching my 2 oldest graduate from college!
Work has been overwhelming of late. I’m hoping our new hire, starting in a couple weeks, will work out and relieve some stress. Truthfully we need at least one more employee to really take some stress off me. Thanks for the chance at the giveaway and for all your wonderful work that helps me escape.
I’ve been enjoyed using the Monsters of St Mark’s series, I’m on the 2nd book and as usual,I can’t put it down. Thank you for writing such amazing stories!
Well, my computer died so I had to pony up some big bucks and get a new one. Might as well get a new printer too, eh? lol I’m doing a lot of spring cleaning and have bought several totes and need more.
Love these darker reads. 🙂 As for myself, not up to much these days. Got a couple weddings this summer to look forward to (one being a nephews.)
I love your books!!! As for what I’m up to these days..just spending as much time as I can with my 5 year old grandson and 7 months old granddaughter 😀
so excited about this ! ive been a fan since turning points. and i have to say your goats are adorable.
You have so much news! I’m exhausted just reading about everything you have going on. Here in the desert the temps are shooting up and as you said, the winds have been crazy for WEEKS! Not just days here and there, but weeks! And the winds mess with my allergies something fierce so I’ve been a recluse for the past few weeks. Luckily they’ve calmed down and I got outside and cleaned up yards and got plants watered and all that good stuff. We’re starting to hit the 90’s here so it won’t be long till triple digits temps are here for the summer. I’m loving seeing all the pictures of the animals and those chickens are SO cute!
It’s a Sunday today. That means DnD with my two sons and husband. Today I turn into a badass fighter dwarf named Nala, who is currently in a pickle. She’s nose-to-nose with a very large red dragon, her sword is stuck in the floor, she was just hit with a wave of weariness… And she’s looking like lunch!
Reading, reading, reading!
Thank you for the chance! We are just trying to recover and counting down the days until summer break.
I love seeing the farm updates and am excited for all the upcoming books! I’m still not sure how you find time to ever sleep, lol! My days are busy with tutoring kids with dyslexia and keeping my 16yo on track with his homework. My husband and I are getting in a few concerts and sporting events, and we’re planning an actual vacation for summer. I thrive on adventures and new experiences, so I’m very happy to resume more of the things I love.
Love your books…. Have the next already on my reading calendar.
We have our garden well on its way. Tax day is planting day in my area. We added an orchard this year; apples, peaches, pears, blueberries & figs.
We have goats; Kikos for us. (Meat)
Are contemplating chickens.
Am avidly reading about your experiences.
I just started the Misters series, just finished Mr. Perfect! Loved it! I have only read the Bossy series so enjoying catching up!
I am on my 36th book since I found you in February and I just love you to death! I love your mind, your stories, and most of all- your EOBS! 😘
I’ve been getting my 18 yr old ready for graduation. 😭😭😭😭
The goats are adorable! I love the floppy ears.
My hubby left for 2 months for work so I’m crazy with work, kids, home, projects, and binging on books! Trying to stay busy so I’m not so lonely!
I’ve been super busy putting in my garden at our new house. When I take a break, I love sitting down with one of your books! Thank you so much!
I’m a huge fan of yours. I just had my upper right lung removed. I had cancer and I’m not a smoker. I grew up in a home of smokers, so 2nd. hand smoke damage is real. I’m just trying to recovery.
I’ve been preparing for my Frenchie puppy, Penny. Born 4.18 22. We bring her home the 2nd week of June.
Congrats on the new release!!
Hi Julie. Your news is always so much fun, between the book updates and the animal stuff it’s a great read, and I love, love the pics and videos of the animals. What an entertaining menagerie! I’m beginning to believe that your days must be more than 24 hours long to do all that you do.
What have I been up to? The last few weeks I’ve been making lots of travel plans. Everything is very expensive but after two years of waiting I say fuck it, we’re going. We just planned our four trips for this year, San Diego, up north in my beautiful state of Michigan for the cherry festival, then to Italy, and lastly to Vegas for the LoveNVegas book signing. Any chance you’re going to be there? I’ve met you at least twice and I’d love to meet you again.
You have a lot to read with all of these comments so I’ll end it here. Enjoy all your new additions to the farm family. Thank you for everything you do for your readers. I appreciate you staying in touch with us and I appreciate everything you write for us! Take care of you too. ❤️❤️❤️
Your updates to the farm look amazing, as well as practical. Can’t wait for all the goodies you’re working on now.
First off Thank you for not using social media. I am not real good with all that stuff. I am retired and my husband still works so I spend half my day reading and love your books. Thank you for this chance.
I’ve started a new job whew difficult when over 60. Stayed Per- Diem at old one to help the nurses out. Crazy drama. Love your farm. With all the animals you could have a petting zoo. Thank you for the chance.
I’ve been busy moving since my father passed away and I was taking care of him. But my life is slowly getting better.
I’m intrigued by the vampire book! 😆 I’m a big Junco fan and I’ve been sitting on the last book for too long. I should read it already, but I haven’t been reading much all year. Maybe it’ll break this slump, I dunno. Thanks for this giveaway! 🙂
Love the goats!! So cute!! Doing lots of spring cleaning so catching up on some audiobooks of yours I hadn’t listened to yet!
Getting ready for my only child to graduate High school and feeling so overwhelmed with all the things that I need to get accomplished.
Julie, Julie, Julie…. You have so many words in your amazing mind, and thus write outstanding stories in record time, I just know if we had a chance to speak with each other, I would never keep up. (But I’d love it) Doing…here in England there are houses called terrace house where the”garden”is a 3ft wide, 25ft long strip of ground. We live in such a house. We have managed to transform it into a beautiful picture of summer flowers. So time is spent cleaning out the old and planting the new.
Congratulations on your release of Savage Saints! I have been busy with Doctor’s visit for my daughter, granddaughter and mother… my daughter was recently hospitalized with kidney failure and very low blood count, turns out she has vasculitis and congestive heart failure but her last kidney doctor says she doing fantastic and now we just have to get her blood pressure under control…we had to wait until her the doctors knew what kidney meds she would be on before they could decide what heart meds to put her on…that appointment isn’t until July, though!
I just spent the day at the zoo with my 9 month old grandson and his parents. Had lots of fun. I love your books.
I don’t know how you do it, Julie. Planting and all the other things you do must be restorative, but I don’t know how you do it all! Not fangirling here. I’m a semi-disgruntled attorney and can barely keep up with a family and small house, if that (the undercoat on my German Shepherd and sorry state of my shrubbery say otherwise). Your books are a gift that keep me going.
Happy New Release!
I’m trying to get my garden ready and getting plants for the spring. Enjoying the warmer days.
We just moved and my brother is remodeling the place.
Did I enter this? I don’t know. I can’t remember anything. My short term memory is not good.
What am I up to? Doctor visits. Trying to pay bills. Trying to just keep on keeping on. Thanks for the chance 🙂
Working… lots of working.
I’m loving the pictures of the animals. Getting ready for the summer.
Looking forward to less stress and some family time.
Wow!! I can’t wait to show my daughter the pictures of all the animals!! She’s going to love them!
We are starting to see a ton of sprouts of all the wildflower seeds that we spread. We go out almost every day to see how much they are growing. She loves it, and can’t wait until we start seeing monarchs. We’re already seeing cabbage whites. She was dancing with one yesterday, it was so cute. We have also decided that we are going to bring in any monarch eggs that we find and raise them indoors so they have a better chance of survival because we do have parasitic wasps around here.
I’ll be sure to send you pictures!!!
I’ve been buying books like a mad woman, and I just got to experience Thunder Down Under last night! Sexy definitely came to mind!
Currently preparing for my first granddaughter!
Been busy making stained glass, working, reading and getting ready for BB22! See you there!!!
hi what am i up to ? moving furniture around and Spring cleaning
You sure are one busy & productive lady! I just planted some chives, thyme & Spanish onions. For me that’s huge bc I hate gardening. But as you said money doesn’t go far now. Might as well grow some things. It’s unseasonably warm here in Canada so we’re getting the pool ready for the season. The biggest news our son is graduating high school in June. Getting ready for grad & preparing for his move to college. I am not ready for it but he sure is. Thanks
We’re planting, gardening, mowing tha lawn, taking care of the outside objects, still going to work and reading no matter what! Thank you, Julie.
Thanks for your time and energy of doing all this! It’s spring, so I’m out in the flower garden and veggie garden. Love buying plants!
Today I’m in Disney World. It’s hot and raining but I’m still on vacation so woo hoo!
we have been getting my daughter college application done and figuring out what college to accept. She finally decided on UCONN and now we are planning her high school graduation before getting her ready for college
Just trying my best to bring up my youngest. The oldest has long since flown the coop and getting way too old to start again buy hey that’s what happens when you horny and nearly 50!
Love your animals. I miss my horses. My 2 mares died of old age 4 years ago. My young gelding injured his hoof and had to be put down during COVID.
I’m trying to get my swimming pool ready for swimming. Finally it’s clean It’s heated and Ohio has been hot this week mid 80’s. Hope to swim this week. Looking forward to reading around the pool.
I love your books! I just accepted a new job!
I’ve just been spring cleaning, reading, and homeschooling my boys. Not much of anything really. Thank you for the chance! I love your books and this is an awesome opportunity!
Excited to learn more about the monsters! And the pics of your hooved creatures are lovely. I’m recovering from an ulcer, meh. But there are beautiful trees putting out flowers and leaves outside my window.
Great book – best covers hands down.!
Planning my annual B-Day trip to Vegas in June, looking forward to the break.
Love your books, God Bless
I had ankle surgery so I can’t do much for a couple months. So I’ve been spending my time watching sports and reading.
Getting more out and about lately and loving it!!
Love hearing all the updates about your farm! Excited to see pics of the bee hive! I’ll be celebrating my one year work anniversary in event planning. Also, the hubs and I just decided we want to plan a vacation in July visiting the Denver/Ft. Collins area. Thanks for allowing us a peek into your very busy life. Between your farm and writing, I’m wondering when you sleep!
Love your books! Also the audios are are a great choice for your listening pleasure😊
What lovely covers! Now that things have slowed down a twork, I will have more time to read.
I loved the animal pictures in your newsletter. Now that summer’s on its way in, I do lots of reading on my porch
I am a bit under the weather at the moment but loved your pics of your animals, especially the cute goats, they really cheered me up. I can’t wait to read these books.
As a retired woman, I have spent most of my days reading and reviewing ARCs for the last 6 years. Slowing down a bit, but I have a book with me at all times and still love it.
Hello from a neighbor to your south! I live in New Mexico and we are finally catching a break from our horrid winds!
Thanks for the giveaway! I am reading the series Milleniun, at the moment. I´m on the 4th book.
Lately I’m just living the mommy life. Work keeps me busy. End of the school year means summer is coming. Yay!
Happy release day. I have book one and I keep meaning to get around to reading it. I’ll have to move it up my TBR.
Spring is finally here and I am spending way too much money on plants and flowers for the yard.
I love reading your books can’t wait to get started on savage saints. Unfortunately work is crazy and I don’t have a lot of free time. I will get to it sooner than later though.
The snow has (almost) melted. So gardening is a mad dash. We’re a month behind. And…wouldn’t you know–mosquitoes are already out. Mother Nature isn’t giving us a break at all this year.
I have 4 banks of raised garden beds – 24’x4′ each so I have been planting my veggies and flowers in them.
We unexpectedly bought a 4 month Husky-lab mix! She is such a sweetie and with our lives so busy, we never thought of getting another dog yet, But she’s ours and she fits in with our crazy. Everything happens for a reason, and she was just meant to be ours!
Can’t wait to dive into Monsters of Saint Mark’s series! Fantastically gorgeous covers!
Working, at home and at work and should be working harder than I am at home.
Today is sunny and about 86 degrees. Hot . We put awaythebirdfeeders and the pigeons , chipmunks, and squirrels are picking up any seed in the grass. Our neighborhood bunny is visiting us fairly regularly. He now has a crop of dandelions to feast on. My Furball , Coco is seeking cool spots in the house( tiger striped tabby). Do not know why our shelter kitty was named this ,as he is male.
Just moved into a new place, been reading to temporarily escape from the stress of it all aha. Thanks for the chance! 🙂
After this Covid mess died down, I feel like bring on the bbq parties again! We’ve been to 2 already and another coming up on Memorial Day and then I host one the third week in June. Life is really good.
Well, I’m busy in the gardens!! Thanks for the chance!
I’ve been busy watching my grandsons when needed and playing in the yard with my gardens. There’s nothing like getting dirty and sweaty doing something that you love. The finished results are worth all the work.
Hi from Alabama! I’m expecting a grandbaby this coming October and I’m super excited about it!
I’ve been really busy attempting to train my 7 month old puppy. It’s very slow going. I’m also preparing for a visit from my daughter, son-in-law and my granddaughter.
My husband farms and we just started planting season. Looking forward to him being done!
My life is busy getting a large garden in and taking care of our honey bees. We will be heading out your way in September. My niece lives in Breckenridge and is getting married in Salida. We are taking a few days to explore the area with the family then will take a slow return home through Custer State Park, Mount Rushmore and the Badlands.
End of the school year coming soon! It’s been another tough one, so the break will be welcome.
Love hearing about your animals and your farm. We live on a small farm and only have 2 large dogs so far. Been wanting to get chicken and goats to help with the brush. Love your books.
Thank you. Since it has been unseasonably warm, we have been working in the yard, in the garden, and sprucing up the deck….although the deck itself is composite, the railings and trim are cedar so we have to make sure everything is in good shape.
what am i doing ? thinking about dinner… steak and ? potatoes or noodles… tomorrow is vacumn day… yeah !!!
I’m waiting so I can listen to both books at once. Currently I’m listening to Jesse, Bossy Brothers.
This year didn’t start well for my hubby and I, lots of health issues. But, we’re still here!!! So, I’m grateful!
Have fun with your goats!!💞💞🐎
Hello!!! Congratulations on your new release. Not too much going on with me. Kids are almost done with school for the year and then hopefully, we will have a great summer.
Thank you for sharing the pics of your cute animals! I am excited for you to have finally gotten your goats 🙂 I am trying to do some spring cleaning but it is slow going. I have no idea how we accumulated so much STUFF. Our landlord wants to sell and we are a little stressed about either being made to move or having our rent raised outside our price range but I am trying not to worry until we know for sure. Reading helps distract me, as always! Thanks for the great sales on a couple of your boxsets – I snapped those right up and told my friends too.
Just getting ready for my oldest grandson’s graduation.
You won’t be hearing me complaining about your release schedule. I can barely keep up with doing my work notes let alone writing a whole novel every month or 2. And I prefer your QUALITY of writing over other authors who are more prolific but do things that annoy me or are too predictable. Go Julie!
We just celebrated my granddaughter’s birthdays, they are getting so big. My youngest is about to graduate high school. We are really celebrating him with a huge cookout. The pool has been great, the weather has been hot here in Mississippi!
Love your books. Always look forward to new ones.
I started a new job and I am actively trying to remind myself how to code so in the evenings I read and let my mind wander down the twists and turns of someone else words. (I read about a book a day). Love the animal pics and I’m glad the horse and donkeys get along.
My only child will be 15 in 2 weeks and starting high school. How in the world does time go by so fast? I may be freaking out a little.
Just read your newsletter! I love hearing about you farm! Taking care of all those guys takes an awful lot of time, so glad you still manage time to keep writing these amazing books! Thanks for the great giveaway!!!
Thanks so much for the chance. Just working hard and trying to stay sane these days, oh, and trying to keep cool, the weather in FL in sizzling!!
I’m learning magic!
I’ve loved pretty much everything of yours that I’ve read – your work excites me, keeps me intrigued and brings me joy!
Can’t wait to start this set if books, I want the whole series so I can read straight through! Just found out I have AFib so I have to have a series of test. Want to go and see family this summer but I don’t know if that will happen. Would also like to go on vacation but that may not happen either as my husband as well as myself have health issues. Love the farm animals ad would love to have the acreage you have! Enjoy your summer.
Hi! Thanks for this wonderful opportunity! I’ve just been hanging out with my grand daughter getting ready for summer and working.
I’m looking forward to summer. I love the long days, the sunshine, and the scent of flowers in the air. I’m also looking forward to the exciting books you have coming out later in the year and hearing all about your animals!
COngrats on another incredible read being released! Absolutely love yourds!
I’m planning a family get together, first time in almost three years we’ll all be together. Lots of cooking to do this week!
Doing some late spring cleaning & making some plans for some fun events 😊
The family and I took a mini vacation to Disneyland and Universal to celebrate the hubby turn 50, son turning 21 and my birthday. We also celebrated our 22 year wedding anniversary and getting ready for my middle to graduate high school. Needless, to say these past few weeks have been very busy!
Congratulations on the new release!!
I live in the Northeast so we from winter straight into summer! Love your animal updates
I’m a new reader & am loving your writing style. I am also enjoying your farm adventures. Sounds like a good life. I love in independence,mo. so definitely a city girl.
Looking forward to the Savage Saints audiobook! ❤️
What a great series. I have been busy watching my grandbaby and reading.
Can’t wait for the final book to release! By the way, the goats are simply adorable!
Isn’t spring awesome! Less awesome are spring allergies. Looking forward to reduced levels of pollen
I am currently trying to keep my four-legged kid from breaking out of her yard and going to visit the other neighborhood dogs. She is a 14 mo old German Shorthair Pointer and not fixed yet…only because I am now told that the current recommendation is to wait until age 2yrs old before doing that to allow for bone development and to lessen the chances of some kinds of canine cancers. We’ve already gone through one heat cycle…and I think the next on is going to be happening her shortly. Ugh!
Love seeing your newsletters in the email-box. I have not started Savage Saints yet…but look forward to getting to do that here soon before the June obligations press down on us. Take Care!
Love the goat pics! Thanks for sharing. =)
I’m working on my health and fitness goals. I was taking care of my nieces for about 7 months for my sister and they’ve just went back with her recently. Hoping for lots of beach days this summer 🙂
I love your books.Thanks for the giveaway. Keep the books coming
It’s tht time of year! I have a granddaughter graduating from high school. Another finishing her first year of nursing school and learning that adulting is not fun. My oldest grandson is a farmer/cattleman. He lives near an Amish community and is learning quite a bit from them. He still likes to jump out of planes thanks to Uncle Sam. My other grandchild are still in school with one week left. YAAAYY…. no more playing the yellow bus for me. Congrats on your upcomming releases. I have one little question…when your store opens this fall will there be any chance that you would be selling book plates? Thanks for the chance!
I’m just working and trying to keep up with my almost 4 year old. She’s so full of energy even when she’s not feeling well.
Ohhhhh just finished building an amazing wooden bookshelf!!! Getting ready to start coaching my daughters cheer team♥️ Other than that just work, taking care of the house kids and hubs and living the good life!♥️
Less than I should be.
Just spending time with the kids and my boyfriend, working, and dealing with the fun spring allergies. My 5 year old daughter has been begging me to get her ears pierced, so I took her yesterday for that. 😁
I recently bought a new sewing machine to replace my old, worn out Kenmore, and just finished my first baby quilt in 18 years for the little boy my niece is expecting next month. I’d forgotten how satisfying it is sewing little pieces of cotton together into pretty patterns.
congrats with your up coming release..
Your goats are adorable.. when I was a kid growing up we had a Nubian Goat.. we named him Billy Jack..
Your Farm looks great.
Hubby and I are going to a Cardinals baseball game this month. Hopefully, they’ll win! We’re talking about going back to Mystic Lake casino in Minnesota at some point. I love playing bingo! That’s about all the traveling we’ve decided on. Other than that I’m looking forward to the pool opening later this month!
What I’m up to these day…..Well the weather in Northern Michigan has been really spring like this last week. I planted my flower pots today, spent some much needed time outside in the sunshine. I love the pictures of the goats, they are so cute. Laverne and Shirley was one of my favorite shows growing up and I think the goats are named appropriately.
We live in New England and the Temp was 91 on May 14. So we had to set up one of the A/C. Stay Cool . 🙂
Very busy these days. I am working full time and going to college too so it’s hectic. Thanks for the chance
I am on vacation in NY visiting family. I moved to Florida in February of 2021. It is wonderful to see family friends. I am looking forward to your future books
Congratulations on your new book! We are busy in the garden. A lot to do after all the storms this spring.
I am heading into contract negotiations with the United Steelworkers & Cleveland Cliffs (I’m on the Union side). I will need lots of books to keep me occupied between meetings.
I just re-listened to all of the audiobooks related to The company including all the spin off series. The creeping beautiful series prompted me to go back. revisiting Ford, Sasha, & all the Misters. It was so fun going back to that world & those characters. Thank you. Now I am in a reading slump because I’m comparing stories & characters to yours. I love & remember your characters. Thanks for always making your stories audiobooks. I’m disabled so audiobooks are easier for me. They are my Jam.
Busy catching up on work after a trip to Vegas. The weather here in WA State is rainy (go figure) so already scouting out where to head next in search of sunshine.
Congrats on the new books and goats!
Busy getting things caught up at work before I take some time off. Going to be reorganizing my home, picking some blackberries, clearing my mind, and enjoying my downtime!
Congrats on the new books! Can’t wait to read them while I’m floating in my pool this summer!
I’ve been busy helping with my daughter’s theater performances. She’s works with a neurodiverse theater group that employs adults on the autism spectrum, and they’ve been performing in different places throughout the state.
I am really enjoying this time of the year. I’m working in the yard and starting my flower and herb garden.
I am looking forward to time to relax. With Easter coming late and Mother’s day week coming early this year, It was exhausting being a florist. I had jury duty the day after Mother’s Day which I was impaneled for (Jury Duty is No joke and was seriously daunting). So now, I am grateful to relax and sleep again! Congrats on your newest release!
Yeah I don’t know how you do it, Julie. Trying to decide which story to focus on when you’re writing… it’s challenging, man. I’m working on three stories right now and every day I wake up not knowing which creative thread will pull stronger. The way you pump these masterful stories out is really inspiring for an aspiring novelist like me. Love it all. <3
Congrats on the new books! We’ve been enjoying the start of spring and golf leagues here in Michigan. We recently found out that our daughter and her boyfriend are expecting a baby, the due date is November 9th. So baby shopping has begun lol.
Let’s see.. I just got back from a 3 day craft fair. Got to see my granddaughters receive their scout awards. The best part of all those days we’re spending time with my grandkids my daughter and son n law.. Congrats on your new book..
Recently I’ve been up to getting all of my finals completed for college!
Congratulations on your new book. I am getting ready to work in our flower beds and veggie garden.
congratulations on your new book.
I am having health issues at the moment so I can’t really report anything good.
The weather is only just started to get better in the UK. So that is one good thing at least.
Take Care and best wishes Julie.
I just finished watching the entire Seinfeld series again and now I’m starting on Stranger Things again so I can be fresh and ready for the new season coming at the end of the month.
Up to? Not much. Just medical tests and doing some med protocols and trying to ignore Spring allergies, aahaha.
We just finished planting our garden but the chickens escaped and started eating at the little sprouts!
Missing my son who entered the USCG training a couple of weeks ago. But it’s what he wanted to do and I am excited for his future! Thanks for the opportunity!
I live in central Wyoming and the wind has been insane! I’m so over it. I watch walls of dust and tumble weeds go down the street in front of my office. Gotta love high desert. LoL Thank you for hours of entertainment and enjoyment. It definitely makes the wind a little easier to take.
I love this can’t wait anylonher
Looking for a getaway this summer to some place nice and cool.
Hope you have a great summer.
My family and I are in Sevierville, TN on vacation! Fun times. So beautiful!
No update with me. Currently waiting for things to work them see out
Thanks for an easy one!
Trying to find a new job right now. The one I have isn’t as great as it used to be. Looking forward to the new book.
Working and currently reading the Harem Station collection. Thank you for the opportunity for the giveaways.
Can’t wait to hear more about the book you just finished. Into Her is one of my favorites!!
Getting the yard ready as it is spring….
The weather finally cooperated here so we could start planting corn and soybeans. Working in the icu and blessedly the covid numbers are staying down in my icu. Enjoying our granddaughter who is 4 months and just starting to laugh! ReReading and relistening to all things JA Huss
Thank you for the opportunity, I’ve had a busy week with 3 graduations, love the names of your baby goats I’m a fan and Laverne and Shirley, good luck everyone, Dana Zamora
It’s been crazy windy here in New Jersey as well. I have lived here for most of my life and it’s never been this windy. I’m really enjoying all of the animal content you have been sharing lately! Keep it up!
We are packing up to move from Sacramento, CA to Madison, WI. We just sold our house here in CA and put in an offer on one in WI – fingers crossed we get it!
I 100% love that the goats are named after the L&S universe! Makes my 70s baby heart so happy!
Love all your books, I’ve just about read them all..
I love your goats! I’m so jealous. I wish we had enough room for them. Looking forward to your vampire book!
I’m gonna miss you at BB2022.
Just diagnosed with breast cancer.Had a lumpectomy. Unexpectedly turned out to be cancer in other breast also. Positive thoughts! Thanks!
been on a leave of absence since August to take care of my mom….it’s crazy.
Wow! What an incredible giveaway!! Nowadays, I’m homeschooling my Autistic teenager while trying to keep my sanity and holding my breath every time he asks me to help him with a math problem…one of these days his math is going to surpass MY math, lol!!
Thanks for the chance to enter! In northern WI we seem to have moved straight from winter to summer. We’ve had bad weather this year, high winds, temps in the -20s (real temp not windchill), etc. so I’m ridiculously happy about the heat.
Moved from MD to MI this week, definitely cut into my reading time! Let the unpacking begin! Ugh!
CONGRATULATIONS ON THE NEW RELEASE!!!🎊🎉🎊🎉 CAN’T WAIT TO ADD IT TO MY GROWING LIBRARY… WHAT HAVE I BEEN UP TO?!?! WELL I JUST GRADUATED COLLEGE WITH MY ASSOCIATES DEGREE IN HEALTH SCIENCES AND AM NOW A REGISTERED MEDICAL ASSISTANT, NEXT I START CLASSES FOR MY BACHELOR’S BUT MY NEXT STEP UNTIL I GET TO ST JUDE’S RESEARCH HOSPITAL DREAM…
Congratulations on finishing another book!
We are also getting crazy winds, and the temps have gone wild too. It will be hot for a couple days, and then drop 10 or 15 degrees, before getting hot again. It killed all my seedlings.
I’m looking forward to these books
Love hearing about your farm and all the animals!
An excellent update! Loving your farm! ❤ We’re working. LOTS. The heat has hit Texas, which makes this our busy time of year. But vacation will be coming soon for me. So ready to ride! 🏍
Congratulations on your new release! I had hip replacement surgery at the end of April. I am still home from work making a slow recovery. Thanks for the chance and for writing amazing stories! Happy Reading
We are preparing for my son graduation in 2 weeks from high school. Hes the youngest of my 4 kids so its exciting but sad. Hopefully have a small family vacation soon since we haven’t had one in years.
Congratulations on the release Julie!
I’m still in London, still on Medevac. Today I’m having an EBUS / Bronchoscopy. It will not be fun. I’m listening to the Ruling Class to tide me over today. Swing hugs to the goats Shirley, Laverne, Carmine, and Squiggy
Despite living across the world (Estonia), we have quite similar weather. It has been a looooong and cold spring, unlike any I remember from before and the winds have been crazy cold and strong. At least there is more time to be inside and spend on reading. LOVE your writing style!
I guess the thing I’m most excited about coming up is starting a small garden this year. I wanted to do it last summer but ended up traveling too much to take care of a garden. I planned on planting last weekend, but we had snow??? in May, hoping this weekend is warm enough to start the planting process.
This month is busy; I work for my college alma mater. We had a dinner theater event last week, graduation this weekend, & 2 Board meetings. Then I’m free for June! Woot!
Thanks for the chance!
Thank you so much for the chance to win!
Waiting for it to stop raining long enough to plant this year’s vegetable garden. Otherwise I don’t mind the rain.
Trying to get my apartment clean and organized
Julie congratulations on the new release I have read most of your books and love them all hope you are having fun with all of your animals on your farm gonna be a hot summer here in Oklahoma
So excited for all of your new stories. I’m a school bus driver, so we are counting down the days until summer break… only 8 more! Then my 3 kiddos and I will get to enjoy lots of quality time together.
I’ve just had emergency surgery so I hope any of this makes sense.I absolutely love the monster world you’ve built! At first I was on the fence about it, but by the end of damaged gods you had me convinced that these are the type of books I need. I don’t know how you do that, lady. I hope there are many more books to come.I’m still a bit loopy but not about loving your books… all of them #1s in my opinion. I plan on binge reading a lot of your books to help with healing, because you need stuff that makes you happy in order to do that, don’t ya think?
Just started Damaged Gods, so I’m looking forward to bingeing the series. Biggest thing for me currently is a new dog. My mom moved from a house out in the country to an apartment (I spent a couple months helping her pack up), and rather than my 80+ year old mother try to walk her 78 lb dog, not to mention live with him in an apartment, he came to live with me. Major dog lover here, so no hardship, and he’s a real sweetheart, but there’s certainly been an adjustment period, especially as the only time he was usually on leash was going to the vet. So we’ve been working on getting him from Tigger on a leash to something resembling a well mannered dog, lol. Lots of walking and lots of ball playing, especially now that the weather has settled into spring (I live in Minnesota, so I’m familiar with the possibility of snow in May).
hi thank you so much. this month has been hard i guess for alot of people too and the only thing keeping my mind sane is reading. thank you so much for all your words and kindness your amazing. be strong guys.
Congrats on the new book and I can’t wait for it to come out. I love all your books. I’m just working, going to the gym and spending time with my hubby & daughter. I miss my parents as they moved to TN 3 years ago so it’s not the same without them. I just take day by day.
I am enjoying the spring weather+ thanks for chance
I’m starting to transplant all my seedlings into flower pots I grow all my own flowers from seeds I harvest from previous year summer flowers. Saves me hundred of dollars every year on flower. Getting the vegtable garden going and just enjoying spring after a long cold winter. Congrats on your new book!
Spring- so many new babies. I live in a valley that has tons of cattle! So lots of calves. I lost a chicken- my little chihuahua brought me the carcass with the wings almost totally intact. She was pretty proud of herself😂 my husband wanted to get some chicks and I said no way!! He’s gone for work and I am not home enough to take care of them. Thought about turkey chicks. Have you had turkeys?
Here I am at 70 years old and deciding to totally change my life.. We retired 22 years ago to the West Indies.. now my husband passed and I am ready to get up and move to Europe – I want to visit all the places that I have dreamed of and settle probably in France.
Congrats on your newest release, it was a fun read! And, I LOVE them dang goats, so cute! 🙂
I am having a hard time right now with the loss of my brother.
We are currently deep into spring cleaning. Inside and outside the house.
Congrats on the new release! Always love the farm updates. We are nearing the end of the kitchen remodel and my youngest child said, “I’m tired of eating food out” which are words I never thought I’d hear from them. Looking forward to home cooked meals hopefully in the next two weeks.
Julie, love the pics of your animals on your farm, looks very peaceful. My husband and I bought a townhouse and we are updating and remodeling. New floors, paint, some plumbing upgrades, new appliances, repair the gas fireplace and building some built ins. Possibly some between the studs shelving, to be determined. We move in at the end of July. 🥰
Really enjoyed your newsletter. Your new goats are so cute!
Hi there, first I need to tell you that I love your books (all genres). Can’t wait for the audio on the 2nd Savage Saints. I have 3 boys, my twins decided to play a little hooky from school this a.m. so I’m stewing just a little. Love your animals! Thanks for giving me an outlet from life’s little trials and pains in the rear!
Just got a promotion at work!!!
I LOVE all your audiobooks! I own all of them, please keep them coming!
My place of work is going back to 100% from 50% so I’m getting used to not working remotely anymore. It sure cuts into my reading time. I can’t wait for your new book coming out in July and your vampire book. I would read your grocery list and find it amazing!
Raising 2 toddlers and trying to start a sublimation crafting business. Going crazy in the process. Hoping and praying I can make this business work I desperately need the extra money
I’m taking a week of vacation time for our fist glamping trip of the spring and summer. Loving it so far. We are trying out a new garden at my inlaws new acreage too.
Congratulations on your new release beautiful!!!! I haven’t been up to much, just babysitting and reading when I can. Had a lot of migraines lately so haven’t been able to read that much.
Thanks for the chance 💛 ❤️
Love all your books! When I’m not reading them, I spend my time making gnomes.
Nothing crazy going on in Sunny FL, but hurricane season just started so….. Can’t wait until your next book is out. Until then I revel in rereading what I have.
Thank you for the chance! The goats are so adorbs! Looking forward to reading your latest releases-on my TBR list.
Also getting ready for summer vacay to Hawaii and then in the fall, we’ll be settling our oldest off to Western WA U dorm.
I raked and cleaned up my flower beds yesterday. Today I will plant the peas.
I haven’t had much time to read lately. Busy with work. But I can’t wait for a little holiday in the summer to catch up.
What am I up to? Trying to plan and get everything ready for different trips this, 1 which is this month. 2 are book related and the other 2 are music related and super excited about all of them.
I love your farm! I miss having animals and being able to ride a horse down the street to the grocery store. I’m from a small town and it’s not unheard of to see someone on horseback at your local Sonic drive-in.
I am about to meal prep a weeks worth of food for me and my kids. Makes life so much easier to have food ready and not have to worry about it later.
I am getting things ready for the end of school. Next Friday is my son’s last day and I cannot wait. We love doing school at home, but I’m ready for a break.
I am finishing my Spring cleaning and planning my garden.
Really enjoying warmer temps. and shorts weather! Thanks!
I’m just trying to survive the last two weeks of school with three kids in three different buildings! Our schedule is crazy!
I Love discovering more of your books. Each one i read pulls me in and I have never been disappointed.
Hey What have I been up too, well just trying not to go insane with my sons lol. My oldest is coming home from the Air Force and I can’t wait too have him home.
Put up a pool for grand babies riding golf cart around with kids just relaxing, work, reading and listening
Just went on a girls trip to FL which was so much fun! Now we are gearing up for summer! Only 7 days of school left here in VA! So ready for summer!
Thank you for the chance!
Looking forward to all the new books you have in the works
It has been a bit hot here for this time of year so I am just staying in and doing some spring cleaning. So nice to get things straightened up feeling accomplished.
I am looking forward to Fathers Day when we are getting the whole family together to celebrate my husband’s 65th birthday. And he has no idea that this is happening.
I have a new grandbaby so that’s what’s keeping me busy these days : ) So much fun since my oldest grandchild receives her drivers license this year.
I’m really excited about all the upcoming books but I’m living for your farm updates now! I’m obsessed with animals and they make me smile on even the worst days. Thank you for sharing them 🥰
Hello! Thank you for the chance. I love hearing about your life and all the animals! I just switched jobs into a new field for me. A little scary but I’m liking it so far. My youngest daughter is expecting a little one in October. My first grandbaby. ❤️
Excited for the book news, but I’m really excited to hear more about the goats and how they are doing. Exciting times for you for sure.
Your goats are sooooo adorable!!! I love that you have that fabulous farm for them and your donkeys and horse, and dog of course!! I’m recovering from CMC joint surgery,(no cartiladge in my right thumb joint) and loving being at home and not at work, with my 2 boxers, Gracie Lou Freebush and Daisy May Dukes and my adopted terrier mix, Summertime. Life is good and am looking forward to your new releases this summer to continue my reading of your amazing stories!! Love you Julie, you ROCK!
Hello from Fort Worth! I’m sweating as I write. We hit 99 this past weekend and our lovely energy provider asked that we all ration our power usage to avoid rolling blackouts. It’s only May!!! Maybe you should write a new sci-fi series set on a planet with with extreme weather, we could all relate. But wait, that wouldn’t be sci-fi 😂
Mostly just staying around the house waiting for the warmer weather. Thanks for the giveaway.
Just trying to survive single parenthood and clinging to sanity one book from my tbr at a time 🙂
Not up to a whole lot. Reading + crafting. We’ve started working in the yard. Got all the small statues out, got the fountain going, + did some weeding. Still need to get out the patio set.
I’m not up to much these days. Trying to get the house cleaned cleaned out! 5 of my 6 kids are getting out of school in the next week. Ones graduating high school and one is graduating kindergarten. Hope all is well with you and the family!
Busy as ever kiddos keep me that way, softball, track, motocross
I have been busy on my farm. The planting season is fast approaching.
Very busy with course evaluations at work. I’d rather read books that essays. And I had to watch Finland-USA in ice hockey world championships and sorry to say but Finland beat you fair and square 4-1!
Thank you so much for the giveaway! I have been super busy with my cleft kiddo and her surgeries and doctor’s appointments lately. I have also been working hard in college, on my way to a bachelor’s degree in graphic design. I’ve also been making handbound notebooks with handmade covers recently!
Hi Julie and fellow book friends! I’m here in Buffalo, NY spreading love and compassion to you and all my neighbors. Spread love and not hate. I wish you all the best day 💗
Congrats on your new release. I visited my sister in Switzerland this weekend.
These days I am looking forward to the end of the school year!! Not that I get to be off of work, lol, but it’s nice to not have a break from early wake-ups, homework, and early bedtimes
For some reason, I thought I already did this. But just in case…. I’m spending the week home with Covid and am not a fan.
I love all the animals, life will certainly never be boring. See ya! xx
So excited to hear about your farm life. I started living the farm life 33 years ago when I married a country guy. We’ve had a variety of animals and livestock throughout the years including the mini varieties as well. They are all such a joy to have in your life. I really loved the kid goats and the way they jump around and act silly.
I think it’s cool you shared the pics in your email of your farm. I have started a small garden with lots of herbs, some different kinds of tomatoes and peppers. I live in Arizona so it’s hard to keep a garden. Thank you for the giveaway opportunity!
Hello from New York
I have been working!! I did just get back from a vacation though; I went to Texas and had a great time!
Trying to get some of my to do list done around the house and some gardening.
Love your books! Looking forward to spending more time outside reading with the nicer weather.
You’re one of my top 5 favorite authors and I can’t wait to read this series!💜
I’ve been busy cleaning my flowerbeds and looking forward to plant shopping day on Fri.
My daughter used time in Gunnison, so I get the shorter planting season for you.
Love your books & animals. I’ve been busy here in Indiana, putting in flowers & garden. Also taking in grandson’s baseball games. Life is short we need to enjoy it all while we are here.
Your goats are precious – I’m jealous! BigDaddy has laid down a hard NO on goat possession, and I’ve had to stubbornly agree with him. Doesn’t stop me from loving yours though!
Congratulations on your SAVAGE SAINTS release! My husband and I have been taking the boat out on the lake.
It is so relaxing and peaceful.
I can’t wait to read more of this series! Love it so far!
As for me, I am currently getting stuff together so that i can redecorate my room. It’s been a long time since I’ve made plans to do anything like that, I used to paint murals but since I don’t have the energy for that stuff anymore, I’ve decided to put together a succulent display wall, along with some other pieces that need hanging, as well as a bit of mural decal. It’s going to add a big more colour into the room and a bit more nature and life and I’m very excited about the prospect! It’ll be a nice spring project, but I’m not going to rush it and wear myself out in the process. My goal this year was to learn to accept my new normal, and a slower pace of life. So I’m trying my best not to overdo it with projects and things like that. 💕
Hi Good Morning- good luck everyone
I am stuck in terrible sleep limbo because of my youngest children and honestly the only thing keeping me from losing my mind is falling into books.
I’m dealing with car issues. It’s so much fun getting a 2nd opinion because your first mechanic can’t figure out the issue. Your cover artist is on fire! I love your covers.
Hi Julie! I hope you’re doing well! Great to hear from you! We are settling in our new house in FL. Moved from AZ earlier last month & it’s been an adjustment! But a good one!
Hi Julie. It’s been so long since I’ve opened this email, much less read a newsletter. This one was very informative and the animals are cute as hell. Thanks for sharing your worlds, both book and home, with us.
I work 10 hour days and I love listening to your books. I just finished Junco and really wish there were more in that series. I look forward to your upcoming Vampire series. Have great day!
As always, read and now into the audio books, every one I’ve listen to has made me realise how much I missed when reading them. Currently listening to Creeping Beautiful after finishing the Bossy Brothers. All just AMAZING books ❤️❤️❤️
I’m a freelancer and I’ve been training for a new client and I landed the gig!
Happy Release Day! I am not up to too much currently just getting everything ready to start my garden.
Enjoying a quiet summer working in a library.
Life is busy, busy, busy! Back to normal life after these past 2 years of having to deal with the global pandemic! I was looking for a side job since the price of living and inflation have gone way up and unfortunately after I thought I had found the one (which was offered to me) the job fell though! I am so disappointed 🙁 Well, I will just have to keep looking… like the saying goes “when one doors closes another one opens”!!!! Wishing you all lots of Health and Luck 🙂
I CAN’T wait for your vampire book. I have lived all your books so far but vampires are my faves!!!
Thanks for this chance at your awesome giveaway ! I love your books
Hi Julie!!! I am still working hard but loving every minute of it since I get to edit and proofread for several amazing authors (not including you YET, but hopefully one day, ha ha)!!!! Congratulations on the goats, the fence and on finishing more books for us to enjoy!!!! I can’t wait!!!
Finally enjoying spring weather in KC Missouri. It seems like we have been skipping spring and fall lately. Just last week we had 90+ for most of week
THOSE GOATS ARE PRECIOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Just had my oldest graduate from high school, and the baby graduates next year……I can NOT be this old! 🙂 haha! Just trying to soak up every second with them! <3 <3
Oh my goodness, the goats!! 😍😍😍 What have I been up to lately? Wedding hair, schooling, child rearing, husband wrangling, etc. 😂
I’m busy trying to potty train my new puppy, Braxton and getting ready to grow some flowers and veggies 🌼🌺🌽🫑
This is amazing! Thanks so much for the chance. Currently getting back into a reading spree 😂
The book cover is eerie with the grain of the wood in the butterfly carving. It makes the reader think the story will be dark.
I absolutely love all the videos you’ve posted on your farm animals…especially then one where Annie was looking for the donkeys!
One of my twin boys is graduating from college this weekend! I’m going to be a blubbering mother at the ceremony!
I live in Florida and it is Hot, The humidity is Brutal!! You think I would be use to it since I lived here all my life, but I’m not. Even the beach water is hot. I enjoy reading all your books:)
I have been doing a lot of Ancestry dot com stuff lately. hope your having great weather where you live.
My new puppy is keeping me very busy! She is so energetic and has me walking (running) her twice a day. She gets into everything and keeps me on my toes but I love her to pieces.
I’m been busy, busy, busy like a bee! It is great to get back to normalcy after this past 2 years of the craziest times we have had in a long while. I have been actively looking for a side job since the cost of living has gone through the roof and my current job is just not enough anymore. After plenty of searching, I was offered a job that seemed perfect for me. Unfortunately the whole thing fell through at the end. Suddenly they had all this demands that were not stated from the beginning (very unprofessional in my opinion) and I was left only with disappointment. Well, as the saying goes “when one door closes another one opens” and hopefully another job will come my way very soon. Wishing you all lots of Heath, Success and lots Luck 🙂
I am so excited for this next installment. We have been cleaning, organizing, and painting rooms in our house and our garage. Finding long lost treasures tucked away in boxes and a lot junk causing us to scratch our heads wondering why we kept so many things. We are trying to create a gathering spot for our 14-year old twins to hang out as they prepare for high school in the fall. My husband restored a 1970’s drum kit for the twins to play around on along with their various other instruments they have taught themselves how to play during covid19 lockdown such as an acoustic guitar, electric bass, electric guitar, ukulele, and electric keyboard.
My new half sister that I found on ancestry.com came to visit us here in Atlanta from Florida last weekend. We found her this time last year after our mom passed away. She is 3 years older than me but it is more like we are twins because we are so much alike. This visit many more people in the family got to meet her and her husband and fall in love with them. Finding her is such a blessing for all of us after all of the turmoil of the last few years. She is flying back for Father’s day. Can’t wait to see her.

Ok, so this is the first I’ve heard of these! I’ve moved them to the top of my TBR!
Currently listening to a RH PNR that includes demons & angels <3
Great! looking forward to it!
I love your work!
Thank you so much for the chance
Just returned last night from a very relaxing cruise to the Caribbean where I had plenty of time to lay back on the Veranda and read my books. Hubby enjoys the Casino and I enjoy the Veranda. The worst part is getting home and having to take care of us again . I so admire your writing and all the talent and time it takes to to publish a book that gives me such joy.. Thank you forever!!!!!!!
Thanks also for the chance.
My son just had spinal surgery. They infused lower back and put 2 bars in with pins from L3 up. He has scoliosis and now he is 2 inches taller since he is strieght. Dealing with pain still but is getting better each day 😊. So I’ve been busy taking care of him. We waited 2 years because of covid quarantine and getting all shots. Caught covid twice in between shots. Crazy. Thank you so much for letting me enter your giveaway Happy summer 😀. I can’t wait to finish planting my flowers in my flower beds. Finally got good weather here in central kansas.
Sick Heart was my initiation into your books. I listened to it on audible. When I was done, I sat in silence for a long time. I read a lot and listen to a new book every couple of days as it helps me clear my mind from work and everyday life. At 49, i can say I am well read. Through my silence I admitted that this book became my favorite of all time and I will get a copy in print so I can read it over again. It changed my reading habits from that moment on and started venturing into more of your books and other types that were not my typical style before Sick Heart. Thank you for opening me up and hitting every emotion in your words.
It’s crazy busy here – my oldest finished high school yesterday – graduation is next Thursday and her party is next Saturday. The youngest finishes 6th grade next week, promotion ceremony on Wednesday for her. I’ve also had to spend a lot of time with my mom who lives alone and has health/memory issues – taking her to doctor appointments, filling up her medicine boxes weekly and then dealing with all the emotions – she’s had a lot of undiagnosed/untreated mental health issues and wasn’t much of a parental figure for most of my life (and basically I’m the daughter she doesn’t like) but the only one local so she’s stuck with me. I’m supposed to be studying for my last two classes for my Masters program – but I’m going to have to put that off until August when I get the oldest settled at college and the youngest in middle school. Not much time for reading – pretty much only reading your new releases. Hopefully life settles down again soon. Oh, and we got a new puppy – she’s 5 months old, 40 lbs (she’s gaining 3 lbs a week right now) super smart. The old dog seems to really enjoy her – but puppies are busy! The rescue thinks she’s a lab/pit mix – her paws are huge! It’ll be fun to see how she turns out!
I’m spending a lot of time with my family. I have 5 brothers & sisters,10 nieces & nephews,a grandniece,a grandnephew and lots of in-laws that live within 30 minutes(except for 1 brother) so we spend holidays together,have lots of birthday parties and go to tennis & volleyball matches & basketball games for the youngest kids. Every week,my sister & I get together with our best friends,who are also sisters,to have lunch,dinner,shop,take a ride to the beach or the mountains-it kept us all sane over the past couple of years! I’ve also been reading a lot-Thanks for all your great books!
🙂 I love you. And the fence. And the snow. 🙂
I’m working 2 jobs so I am tired.
I don’t care about the $100, so don’t pick me (unless I can win an autographed book!). I just wanted to share how excited I am about the new release! Though I’m torn because the audio in this series is awesome… do I wait for the audio? I don’t have the patience!! I really REALLY get lost in this series 💕
Wanting some time to sleep – that would be great!
Thank you for all your brilliant books!
I’m reading when I can and walking when the weather cooperates.
I’m starting a new project at work, and will now be working late nights for a different reason.
I lost my Siberian husky of 10yrs in Feb: Valentines Day. I’m having to reinvent my summer self now. She & I hardly spent a moment apart in all that time. She even loved to swim so even that pastime I spent doing w/her.
I surely love to read. Vampires are my fave. I’m hoping to be feeling the outdoors again alone with a nice book in hand whether on kindle or a paperback. Getting to know just my own company in nature all over again.
Thanks for the chance. 🙂
I am just working alot lately! I have missed reading due to working so much but I have been listening to some audio books. Just started Sick Heart yesterday!!! Loved the book when I read it and I always love your audio books too and Sick Heart has not disappointed either, i am about a third of the way thru and loving it just as much listening as i did reading! Can’t wait for your new release:)
amazing, summer is coming i am happy
I’m working a lot and working on finding a new place closer to work (long commutes are killer). Also been making progress on training my kitty she can lay or sit on me, she is former feral, so she is iffy on if that is allowed or not.
