Blog Tour : Clutch & Giveaway

Clutch: I Am Just Junco Dot Com
Book One
In 2152 the avian race is on Earth looking for something stolen from them decades ago – their genetics.  At the center of the search lies the Rural Republic; a small backwards farming country with high hopes of military domination and a penchant for illegal bioengineering.
19 year old Junco Coot is the daughter of the Rural Republic’s ranking commander. She’s the most foul-mouthed, wildly unpredictable and ruthless sniper the Rural Republic has ever trained.  But when her father’s death sparks a trip into forbidden places, she triggers events that will change everything she knows to be true.
As an elite avian military officer, Tier’s mission is to destroy the bioengineering projects, kill Commander Coot’s daughter, and return home immediately. There’s just one problem. Junco isn’t who she claims to be.
With no one to trust, not even herself, Junco must confront the secrets of her past and accept her place in the future, or risk losing herself completely.
Review: Let me start by saying this is the first Science Fiction Novel I have read.  Wow, this book blew me away. Junco is a strong female character that kicks butt and takes names. With a plot that holds you as the story continues you never know what is going to happen next.  The pulse pounding action gets you from the first few pages and flows seamlessly through out the whole book. I could not wait to see what happens next to Junco and how she would  prevail.  The language is quite rough (not for kids under 17)  but it seems natural in this book. The world that is described in this book is very creative and captivating.  I was rooting for Junco to overcome any obstacle in her way and make the right choice in her life. I was sitting on the edge of my seat as I read the last chapters and cheering out loud ( My husband thinks I am nuts ) but I could not contain my excitement as all the pieces fall into place, but leave you wanting more. Before this book I was not a science fiction fan, but now I see that I made a rash decision and will keep my eyes open to all the books in the series now.

About The Author          

J. A. Huss never took a creative writing class in her life. Some would say it shows. Others might cut her some slack. She did however, get educated and graduated from Colorado State University with a B.S. in Equine Science. She had grand dreams of getting a Ph.D. but while she loves science, she hated academia and settled for a M.S. in Forensic Toxicology from the University of Florida.


She went on to write science curriculum for homeschoolers and now runs a successful home business that creates and offers online science unit studies. When she’s not writing science curriculum or fiction, she works as a farm inspector, traveling the Eastern Plains of Colorado in variety of environmentally friendly vehicles that never have four-wheel drive, so when she gets stuck in the mud in said vehicles, she has to beg for assistance from anyone who will help her. She is not bitter about that at all.


She’s always packing heat and she is owned by two donkeys, five dogs, more chickens and ducks than she can count, and of course, the real filthy animals, her kids. The I Am Just Junco series was born after falling in love with the ugliest part of Colorado and the Rural Republic is based on the area of the state she currently resides in, minus the mutants, of course.
