Guest Post & Review ~ Losing Francesca by J.A. Huss {Giveaway}

Welcome to my tour stop for

Losing Francesca by J.A. Huss

Please follow the remaining stops, tour schedule can be found by clicking on the event banner above

I'm so excited to be part of a J.A. Huss tour! J.A. Huss grabbed my attention when Tragic, a Rook & Ronin novel was released, and yes I absolutely LOVED Tragic's cover. So I definitely wasn't going to pass this opportunity to sample this Authors work. I've heard so many fantastic things about Tragic. Anyway, without further ado, I'd like to welcome J.A. Huss today as she gives us an insight of a day in her life. 

About The Author

J.A. Huss

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.

A Day in the Life of J.A. Huss

Well, a day in the life of me is pretty boring. I am a full time writer, so much of my day is spent in front of a computer. I don’t really wake up at a certain time, so that’s kinda nice. But once I get up I check all my various emails. I have three – a personal one, a blog/author one, and another one that I use mainly for my editor. After that it’s off to social networking sites. I check in with my friends on Facebook, try and come up with something fun to post for one of my FB pages, and then head on over to Twitter. Most of my morning is just boring stuff like that. I might make some promo graphics and I always check sales to see how things are going. But mostly I just screw around and do a whole lot of procrastinating. 

Then I hop on the treadmill for 30 minutes. Since I sit so much, I have to do this or I’d go crazy. Plus, almost all my plot ideas come to me when I’m on the treadmill, so it’s productive. After that I have to go out to the barn and feed my animals because I live on a small farm. I have donkeys, chickens, and ducks. 

By this time it’s afternoon and I tend to start feeling guilty about not doing any writing, so I’ll usually sit down and get in a few thousand words. If I’m on a deadline I will write well into the night. After writing it’s time for blogging stuff so I’ll read, write up reviews, and schedule posts for the book blogs. 

If I’m nearing a publishing deadline I might make covers or a book trailer or edit the book that’s next up on the schedule. At the very, very end of writing, just before the book goes to the editor for the first time, I spend days just reading the book, over and over, trying to catch all the mistakes and polish it up. I think it’s my personal goal to one day send a book to my editor, RJ, and have her send it back saying – “It’s perfect!” That will probably never happen. 

But that’s pretty much it for the daily grind stuff. I rarely watch TV, but I’m a Spotify addict and listen to my playlists on repeat pretty much 24/7. Most of my evenings I spend reading and on the weekends I like to hit the movies or shopping.

About The Book

Losing Francesca

by J.A. Huss

Published: July 1, 2013
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance

Buy It Now: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Kobo 


Francesca Sabatini came to America to take in the sights, celebrate her high school graduation, and have fun wasting time before college starts in the fall.

That’s not what happens.

Fresh off the plane and barely on American soil more than a handful of minutes, Francesca’s face is recognized by TSA scanners to be a match for a child who was kidnapped twelve years ago.

Brody Mason remembers the day Fiona Sullivan went missing during a family vacation in Italy and it’s haunted him his whole life. So when Francesca shows up at the Sullivan farm down the road, he’s compelled to figure out if this girl really is his long lost friend.

But Francesca knows she’s not Fiona Sullivan. She knows exactly who she is. At least she thinks she knows – until Brody Mason relentlessly pursues her and she begins to have feelings for him. Maybe being Fiona isn’t so bad?

Reality becomes blurred, secrets are revealed, and life will never be the same when the final questions are answered: Is she Francesca or Fiona? And where does she really belong?

Great post! I loved being a part of the tour and reading this book! It was so fabulous and I loved Tragic too. Her office is so cute and very clean. :-)
