My Nosy Nine chat with J.A. Huss + Contest!

 I am so so over the moon to have J.A. Huss visiting The Book Tart again. It’s been too long since she camped out on my couch and I luvs her to the muchness so I can’t let her stay away so long again. She became one of my fav authors when I fell in love with her Junco science fiction series… but I was a little nervous about trying her new adult book Tragic. I shouldn’t have doubted *head/desk* now I’m addicted to another series. Gahhhh! Click HERE for my review.

Enjoy our silly and have handful of jelly beans.

The Queen of Tarts

Me: Julie Julie Julie! Yay! Come on in hon. I’m so happy to grab you for a short chat on my short couch… Love seats are cozy. 😉 And we are closer to the snacks. I think you need some sugar… And I always have room for sweets. *grabs a handful of m&ms* chocolate is good for you. *nods* What’s your fav snack?


Julie: OMG, I haven’t been here in SOOOOO long!  I LOVE what you’ve done to the place! Favorite snack?  Must one choose?  That must be a new rule… hmmm, well, I’m off the Milk Duds, lost a crown over that one, and I’m on to gumballs. I’m considering a gumball machine in my office, actually.  🙂


Me: A gumball machine? I approve! I have a jelly bean machine. Makes mouths happy. Wait. That’s Twizzlers isn’t it. Now I want licorice.

😉 Oh! jelly bean machineand darlin’ I have lotsa crowns… I’ll share. 😀

So I’ve told you before…but it bears repeating. You are amazing! (and crazy! 😛 ) Three stories out already in 2013 and two more coming in the next few months…. I adore you to the muchness! I don’t know how you do it but  I am so happy that I get lotsa your stories. Cause I’m rather addicted.


Julie: Well, I do put a little addictive magic in my words, so it might be a chemical reaction in the brain that can’t be helped. But anywho, thanks a bunch!


Me: *bops sneaky author with pillow* you! I knew it! 😀

What can you tell me about your new books and where you got your Hermione time turner necklace. 😀 Oh! and what you’re working on now? *bites head off green Sour Patch kid* yum! And how well do you do with run on questions?


Julie: Did you see that Hermione is selling those time turner necklaces on EBay?  I swear!  I got two, which explains the whole multi-book publishing thing.  Well, this book is called TRAGIC, and it is a bit tragic, but really it’s a falling in love story between two very different people.  It has sweet moments, but lots of naughty moments too!  😉  We like the naughty ones best.  (I adore sentences that run on without commas, they’re my favorites!) I just finished two more books, a stand-alone sweet romance and the sequel to TRAGIC, which will release on August 1.


Manic by J.A. Huss Me: I am so excited about Manic!

I’m not going to keep you too long cause I want you to write more. *whispers* Junco- Junco  But I am always curious or rather… nosy. So darlin’ Here’s my…  *drumroll*


Julie: (And just FYI, I started Junco yesterday. Lucan killed someone very important. It was so much fun!)


Me: *Snoopy Dance!* woohoo! Yay! and Meep! Lucan? You are such a tease. 😀 I love it…

2. Are you a good cook? Yes! I’m a good baker, too!

oohh! I want cupcakes!


3. Have you ever been canoeing/kayaking? Yes, at summer camp when I was twelve.


4. How long could you go without talking? Talking to other real people?  Or talking to myself and/or fictional characters?  😛  A long time, I’m a social recluse.

lol Twitter totally counts 😀


5. What’s your favorite TV jingle? “Ohhhhhhhhhhhh, I wish I was an Oscar Meyer Weiner, then everyone would be in love with me….”


6. What do you have on your fridge door? Nothing, it’s stainless steel and you can’t use magnets.  But, on the side, which is not stainless, I have a picture of my daughter riding a donkey/zebra in Mexico when she was like three.  She has on a giant sombrero that says “Batman”.

rotflol Batman! that’s awesomsauce 🙂


7. Who was the last person to send you a text message?? My ex. I asked him for $1000 and he said yes and then we chatted about my book.


8. Do you sing to yourself? Yes!  Always!

Yay! Me too

Me: Thanks for humoring my silliness hon. I am ecstatic that you have a few book birthdays coming up too cause that means more playdates on my virtual couch! *Kermit flail*

Rook Walsh is TRAGIC Because life so far – just sucks. Some girls get parents. Rook got the foster care system. Some girls get Prince Charming. Rook got an abusive frog. Some girls get lucky… Rook got a second chance. And she took it. Because when fate throws you a bone – you grab it with both hands and run. Antoine Chaput knows the minute he spies Rook in his photography studio that she’s got The Look. The dark and desperate look he must have to land the exclusive TRAGIC media contract. Rook is paired up with top model, Ronin, and he’s everything her abusive ex-boyfriend wasn’t. Patient, gentle, happy, attentive, and sexy! He knows exactly what to do to make Rook blush for Antoine’s portfolio. Rook’s luck changes in an instant and suddenly she’s the darling of the modeling world. It’s a dream job to go with a dream guy and all she has to do is look pretty and follow directions. But there’s always a price to pay – and Rook is about to get the bill. TRAGIC is a new adult contemporary romance.

J. A. Huss likes to write new adult books that make you think and keep you guessing. Her favorite genre to read is space opera, but since practically no one reads those books, she writes new adult science fiction, paranormal romance, contemporary romance, urban fantasy, and books about Junco (who refuses to be saddled with a label).

She has an undergraduate degree in horses, (yes, really–Thank you, Colorado State University) and a master’s degree in forensic toxicology from the University of Florida. She used to have a job driving around Colorado doing pretty much nothing but shooting the breeze with farmers, but now she just writes, runs the New Adult Addiction and Clean Teen Reads Book Blogs, and runs an online science classroom for homeschoolers.

  1. Tragic sounds like a fascinating book. Loved the interview. Thanks for sharing. Yes, I do believe in second chances.

  2. I have always believed in second chances. Life would be tragic without them because we all make mistakes and wish to correct them.
