BOOK BLITZ - I Am Just Junco Omnibus by J.A. Huss

I Am Just Junco Omnibus by J.A. Huss 
(I Am Just Junco Books 1-3) 
Publication date: November 4th 2013
Genres: Dystopia, New Adult, Science Fiction

Clutch~Fledge~Flight (1,152 pages) – the first three books in the epic science fiction fantasy saga that spans five full length novels and one novella.  The final book, RETURN, will be released on December 2, 2013.  

Nineteen year old Rural Republic sniper, Junco Coot, has been lied to. Not once or twice, but pretty much everyone she ever trusted is totally full of sh*t. And now her father is dead, she’s on the run, and everyone wants a piece of her—including one winged alien warrior named Tier.

But the truth always catches up and Junco has to choose who she should trust. The people who have lied and trained her to kill since she was a small child? Or the warriors who want to steal her away and use her as the catalyst in a plot to fight the final battle in an ancient war?

It’s a choice that will change her fate forever. And once it’s made—there’s no turning back. Life becomes nothing but brutal killing in the name of vengeance. But everything requires sacrifice—everything has a price. And Junco is about to find out what it means to dedicate herself to saving someone else.  

Junco is not young adult. She has a foul mouth and violent tendencies.



Omnibus Trailer:

Top Ten Reasons Why Junco Kicks Ass:


Character profile:
Junco Abigail Coot
Born: September 3, 2133

Physical Description:
OK, I’m short. But don’t underestimate me because that never stopped me from kicking someone’s ass.  Most of the time my hair is auburn brown, my eyes are hazel and my body has a little more muscle than most girls should.  But don’t count on me staying this way forever…I have secrets…secrets that have giant consequences!

Actress who could play you in a movie:
Cameron Phillips - the reprogrammed Terminator from Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. She’s awesome.

Job:  Professional soldier, assassin, and Seventh Sibling.

Favorite gun: Ohhh, that’s a hard one. It’s a draw between the TZi .357 and the RM Elite sniper rifle.

Favorite MMA move: Shit, how does one choose? I guess it would be the tornado kick. They never see that coming, plus I got all that acrobatic stuff behind me, so I really catch some air when I make contact.  TMI?  Sorry!

Favorite Sibling:  LOL...that question is so unfair, but it definitely isn’t Irin. She’s a total bitch.

Favorite member of the 039: Nooooo…I can’t do that to them.  They are all my favorites! 

Favorite vaca spot: Well, it’s not a vaca spot, but I do love when Lucan takes me to see the stars.  It’s beyond Heaven.

Favorite food: Blueberry pancakes

Age: In Clutch, Fledge, and Flight I am 19 (it was a pretty big year for me)…Range takes place when I’m 22.

Birthday: September 3, 2133

Zodiac Sign: Virgo

Favorite Color: Yellow

Favorite Song: Road to Paradise by Tat

Words to live by: Do the job you’re trained for, and if you’re not trained for the job at hand, shut up and stay the fuck out of the way.

Perfect Saturday Night: At home with Tier, or shooting with Gideon, or watching horror screens with Ashur, or letting Selia treat me like a Barbie head, or playing cards with Braun, or…well you get the picture.  I enjoy all of them!

Three words that best describe me:
Feisty, powerful, relentless.

What did you want to be when you grew up:
A mother.  :)

Day or night: DAY!  Although I do enjoy a good stargaze, I could go a million years and never see another nightdog and die happy.

Character profile:
Raubtier, Aves 039-1
Junco asked me (Ashur) to introduce Tier’s interview since I happen to know him best.  I thought I’d spice things up a bit and add my take on his questions…enjoy!

Physical Description:
6’1, 185 lbs. black hair, green eyes. I think this is a stupid question, let’s move on. No one cares what I look like, only how well I fight. (ASHUR: Next)

Actor who could play you in a movie:
Next… (ASHUR: Next)

Job:  Second in Command to Lucan, Captain of the 039. (ASHUR: So he thinks…)

Favorite gun: Whatever’s available when I need it.  (ASHUR: Tier only uses guns if they’re handy, otherwise he’s all about slashing throats.)

Favorite MMA move: The flying knee, that throws them off every time. It’s like, splat, there goes your jaw.  Bye… (ASHUR: Yeah, I agree.  That shit hurts.)

Favorite Team Member:  Ashur.   (ASHUR: Awwwww…he loves me.)

Favorite vaca spot: Next… (ASHUR: Secretly, Tier loves Disney World)

Favorite food: I’ll eat anything, who cares? Food is food.  Although Junco is an excellent cook and I enjoy her human meals. (ASHUR: Junco makes an awesome pineapple upside-down cake)

Age: In Clutch I’m 24. In Fledge and Flight I’m 25…Range takes place when I’m 27.

Birthday: I have no idea when my birthday was – sometime in the Clutch year of 2127 maybe.  The only day that counts is your morphday. Mine is March 9, 2139 and since the 039 were all sent back from Earth at the same time, we all morphed together. So all the members of the 039 share the same morphday. (ASHUR: We have a raging fucking party every year.  Invitation only.)

Zodiac Sign: Aquarius

Favorite Color: Black

Favorite Song: Everything by Metallica (ASHUR: Dude, do you remember that time we saw Ozzy and Metallica, and Van Halen and Metallica, and all those other times we saw Metallica?  If you do, let me know – because they’re a little fuzzy in my memory for some reason….)

Words to live by: Trust me. (ASHUR: pffft.)

Perfect Saturday Night: At home with Junco.  (ASHUR: That’s mine too!  We’re so much alike!)

Three words that best describe me: Short-tempered, driven, and serious. (ASHUR: Well, I’d say asshole, asshole, and asshole.  Is three all we get?)

What did you want to be when you grew up: A good guy. (ASHUR: Good guy?  You don’t even come close, brother. Sorry.)

Day or night: Night. The best part of my day is sleeping next to Junco. (ASHUR: Rub it in.)

Hello dear readers!  It’s Lucan’s turn to have his character profile and Junco has asked me (Sera, your favorite artificial intelligence) to introduce him, begged, really. (I mean, she was all up in my face pleading with me – it was almost pathetic!)

Being the loving and caring being that I am, of course I agreed. :::insert devilish grin here::: So without further ado, hold on tight kiddies, we’re taking the corners at full speed!

Character profile:
Lucan (Sera)

Physical Description:
LUCAN: This is difficult…I cannot say any more. I have several forms, none of which look anything like the other.

SERA: I’m a stunning 5’9 redhead, natural, of course. My skin is smooth and fair, and my fashion sense is unmatched on habitat or planet.

JUNCO: Oh for fuck’s sake Sera, this is not your profile. Butt the hell out!

SERA: I’m ignoring Junco.  Everyone, please join me.

Actor who could play you in a movie:
LUCAN: Leonardo DeCaprio

SERA: Evan Rachel Wood – she’s perfect and did you see her as Sophie-Ann in True Blood!!! And that little brat she played in Mildred Pierce! I loved her, so nasty, and self-absorbed!  She’s perfect!

JUNCO:  Hmmm…surprisingly, both of you hit that nail on the head.

LUCAN: President of the Avian.

SERA: Unemployed at the moment, but I have big plans for Earth.

LUCAN: I fired her ass thousands of years ago.

SERA: You wish, I quit because I could not stand you for one more second.

JUNCO: Am I gonna have to pull this car over?

Favorite AI:
LUCAN: Obviously NOT the one who abandoned me two thousand years ago.  So, Amelia, of course.

SERA: I thought you said you fired me? 

JUNCO: She’s got you there, Lucan.

Favorite Junco moment:
LUCAN: The first time she told me off…which was about five minutes after we met. :)

SERA:  Oh, this is a spoiler!  I cannot tell!

JUNCO: Good girl, Sera.  You know how I hate spoilers.

LUCAN: Kiss ass.

Favorite 039 Team Member
LUCAN: They are all equally important to me, but obviously Raubtier is who I count on the most to deliver what I require.

SERA: Hmmmm…I love Isten the most, I think.  He’s so hot and typically up for just about anything.

JUCNO: Oh, please. Spare me the details.  Lalalala….lalalala….I can’t hear you.  I really don’t need that image in my head.

Favorite vaca spot:
LUCAN: Australia, especially The Kimberly. Crocodiles and Cuckoos, how can you top that?

SERA: Earth!  I love Earth.  I can do so many things with…errrr…I mean ON Earth!  It’s spectacular!

JUNCO:  :::sigh::: I’m gonna regret this.

Favorite food:
LUCAN: Cheeseburgers. Junco got me hooked on these, especially In-and-Out Burger.  The wait in the drive-through is exceptionally long most of the time. But yet, it’s worth it when you take that first bite of burger.  Mmmmm…burgers are the best thing about Earth.  Besides the Kimberly, of course.

SERA:  I do not eat. 

JUNCO: Hey, if you don’t eat and you’re not hooked up to a reactor, then where do you get power?

SERA: I could tell you, but I’d have to kill you.

TIER: She steals her power from-

SERA: Raubtier, you will regret spilling that secret.  I’m warning you.

JUNCO: Oh shit, not another one?  I have no interest.  Zero.  Move on, please.

LUCAN: I have no idea.  Many hundreds of years past seven thousand.

SERA: Twenty-nine.

LUCAN: Every day is a birthday for me.  I’ve been morphed hundreds of times, each time I came out I was reborn.

SERA: What he said.

Zodiac Sign:
LUCAN: All of them.

SERA: :::Yawn:::

Favorite Color:

SERA:  Oh, me too!  You know why he likes red, don’t you, Junco?


SERA: Because of my dress.

LUCAN: Sera, the only thing larger than your ego is your propensity for lies.  I love red because it’s my true eye color.

Favorite Song:
LUCAN: I prefer classical avian music and rarely listen to anything else.

SERA: My Humps, Black-Eyed Peas.  LOVE that song.

JUNCO: That song is old.  You’re dating yourself now, Sera.

SERA: At least my favorite song isn’t opera.  Loser.

Words to live by:
LUCAN: To the victor belong the spoils.

SERA: Oh, yes.  I like that one.  I also like all’s fair in love, war, and life.

JUNCO: That’s not how it goes, all’s not fair in life.

SERA: Junco, whose interview is this anyway?

JUNCO: Lucan’s!

Perfect Saturday Night:
LUCAN: Watching tennis or golf.

JUNCO: :::snort::: This is true, too!  He’s so boring.

SERA: I party every weekend.  You ever been to that club downtown, Junco?  You know that one in the church?

JUNCO: That’s a BDSM club, Sera, so no.  I’ve not been there.

SERA:  Oh, well Isten and I go all the time.

JUNCO and LUCAN: Lalalala….lalalala….We can’t hear you

JUNCO: OK - this interview is over. 

Thanks for stopping by Dear Readers!  Until next time!


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. When I was little I played a lot of make believe. I was Isis, Wonder Woman, Bat Girl, Storm, and Jean Grey. Now I'm all grown up and have to leave childish things behind. It's not that I don't play make believe anymore. Now when I do, I am just Junco. It's who Isis, Wonder Woman, and all the rest pretend to be when they play make believe. <3


We love hearing what you guys have to say so why not leave us a comment :) Thanks for stopping by!
