Jillian Dodd

An Extraordinary Woman

Don’t you just love surprises?

Well, a certain Jillian Dodd has no idea that 99 authors are going to blog about her today or that reader bloggers have jumped on board too to help us thank her for what she has done for us.

Jillian Dodd is a best selling author of fabulous young adult fiction. Her writing is pure entertainment, which has found thousands of fans… but more about that it a minute.

I’ve “traveled” in the same reader and author circles as Jillian for a while, and just started to really get to know her over the last couple of months. She’s 100{43d0d1614ecc8ec385b3ea9940a88627e26eaf9be88a0641399e0be0c80ef276} genuine and sweet. Why does this matter?

On the 21st of December 99 authors (myself included) were part of a promotional activity to sell 99 EBooks for 99 cents. Jillian had come up with a marketing plan while chatting to other writers about the best way to bring their books to the attention of the reading public.

Like a General she assembled the troops, issuing clear step-by-step instructions on what we had to do, how and when we had to do it . Let me explain to you that in the world of self-publishing where everyone is their own agent, essentially, organizing something like this was completely selfless and just amazing. She wanted to create buzz for  A GROUP of indie authors and help ALL of us succeed. This wasn’t just about her books. It was about BOOKS.

At the end of the 21st December, ten of us were in the top 100 in the Kindle store. By this time Amazon had leapt aboard to assist in the 24hr price drop and helped us with the Kindle Daily Deal and the majority of us found our rankings soar. Many of us sold hundreds of books. Many were in the top five of their specific category genres. Readers were ecstatic, authors were excited and Jillian stayed up with virtually no sleep for forty-eight hours to make sure the whole thing went smoothly and to keep a beady eye on the numbers.

And let me tell you it was a thing of beauty! Many of us “liked” each other’s author pages and became friends on Facebook. When you’re an Indie author, you can NEVER have too many friends in the same boat.

But back to her books!

Did you guys ever watch Gossip Girl? Or Beverly Hills 90210 in the early days?

Well, if you enjoyed those, you’re going to love the steamy Keatyn Chronicles. Readers have gone wild for Keatyn and her complicated life, never mind her even more complex love life.

Jillian’s ability to write such a fabulously drawn character has readers coming back for more again and again. Keatyn may look as if she has it all, but she hasn’t and she has the smarts to know it too. This is no timid little doormat. This is a girl who’s on life’s journey to understand herself, her sexuality, to figure out where she fits in to a complex world and how she deals with being separated from all she holds dear.

Reviews state that the secondary characters are incredibly well written, especially the guys. The men are so drool worthy, fans of Keatyn are busy on social networking sites posting photos of who they think should play them in a film or television series. And right there is the magic. I wouldn’t be surprised to see a television series in the books’ future.

Check out Jillian’s fabulous books and show her some LOVE. Personally, I’m going to start my Jillian Dodd reading TODAY!
