The perfect semester for Violet Perch starts with an awesome roomie and a freshman crush intent on becoming a sophomore reality. Yay! With everything going right, it only makes sense for the Yellowstone caldera to erupt for the first time in 630,000 years. 

Violet struggles to maintain her new perfect normal as devastation in the west combines with the volcano’s ash to muck up the works all over North America. Her deny-deny-deny strategy does the trick…until college closes. 

Hitching a ride home to Indiana with her hopeful boyfriend softens the blow of saying good bye to her roomie, Mia, even if it does mean Boone will be exposed to her family in apocalyptic prepper mode. When his parents warn him to stay away from their ash-pelted Nebraska ranch, Violet buys more precious time with the all-American guy she’s admired from afar for a year. 

Having Hotness within arm’s reach definitely makes a global disaster more palatable. But a man with Boone’s sense of responsibility won’t stay away from his family for long, which will leave Violet where? Exiled at home with her parents, separated from Boone and Mia, lonely and single forever. Though forever might not be a long time if the eruption continues.

Eruption is book one in a series. While no major characters are left hanging from their fingernails on the last page, there’s definitely more to come.

About J…


J. Hughey knows what a girl wants. Independence. One or two no-matter-what-happens friends. A smokin’ hot romance. A basic understanding of geological concepts. Huh? Okay, maybe not every girl is into geology, but J. Hughey is, and in the Yellowblown series she combines her passion for a timeless love story with her interest in geeky stuff to help Violet Perch get a life, despite an ongoing global catastrophe.


A unique bite from Eruption

Boone explains his history with a girl who got a little catty when she sees him and Violet on their first date:

“We dated at the end of sophomore year, a few weeks into junior.” After a full minute of silence, he pushed open the door of the busy restaurant. “Is that a deal-breaker or something?”

    Sounds like a great book. I can just see a teenager blaming someone because the world is going to end before she gets to go to the prom. 🙂

      It’s funny you say this. The first editor who looked at Eruption had some great points, and one of them was that Violet wasn’t likable early enough in the book. She said she was narcissistic, and I was like, well, duh, she’s a nineteen year old girl. I’m not saying the editor was wrong, but that self-centered, tunnel vision was the beginning of the arc for Violet. I just needed a faster climb so that the reader didn’t completely give up her.

    I sent a tweet to everybody who showed up in the comments because of their twitter activity, but to the whole group, thank you so much! I’ve had my head down down down trying to polish this manuscript, and it is so nice to finally look up to see the sunshine of all your support!
