It’s Jillian Dodd Day!!!

Posted December 31, 2012 by Holly in Uncategorized / 1 Comment


Jillian has no idea that 99 authors are going to blog about her today or that we bloggers have jumped on board to help them thank her

Jillian Dodd is a best selling author of fabulous young adult fiction. Her writing is pure entertainment, which has found thousands of fans… myself being one of them! I first read That Boy in June when Amazon suggested it to me and I fell in LOVE with Jillian’s writing; she has a way of letting you into her heroine’s head and makes sure you have a great reading experience while you’re there

On December 21st 99 authors were part of a promotional activity to sell 99 
e-books 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 and we all responded in a good and timely manner.
At the end of the day, ten authors were in the top 100 in the Kindle store. By this time Amazon had gotten on board to assist in the 24hr price drop and helped  with the Kindle Daily Deal and the majority of authors found our rankings soar. Many of them 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 watchful eye on the numbers.
And let me tell you it was a thing of beauty!

I was hooked on Jillian after this book

You know, being friends with two cute boys does have its benefits. 

There’s Danny. Danny is a golden boy in every way. He has dreamy blue eyes and blonde hair that always looks perfect, even when it’s windblown or been stuck under a football helmet. He’s the boy every girl crushes on. The boy I get into trouble with, the boy I fight with, the hot quarterback no girl can resist, not even me. Being with Danny is like being on an adventure. He has a bright, contagious smile and abs to die for. He’s pretty much irresistible.

Equally crush worthy is Phillip. Adorable, sweet Phillip, who I have known since birth.  Phillip has dark hair, a perfect smile, brown eyes, and the sexiest voice I have ever heard. He’s the boy I talk to every night before I go to sleep. The boy who rescues me, the boy who can read my mind, the boy who is always there for me, the boy who tries to keep me out of trouble, the boy who irritatingly keeps getting hotter, and whose strong arms always seem to find their way around me.  And when he gives me that grin, I can never say no.

One boy will give me my very first kiss.
One boy will teach me to make out.
One boy will take me to prom.
And finally, one boy will ask me to marry him.
They will both be my best friends.
But only one of them will be the boy I fall in love with.
Only one of them is That Boy.

So naturally I HAD to read That Wedding!

That Wedding, book two of the That Boy Series.
The gorgeous engagement ring on my finger mimics my happiness.
I feel so sparkly, glittery, and full of promise, because I absolutely know he’s that boy.
The boy I want to marry. My prince. My happily ever after.
But then our pastor starts asking lots of questions.
His parents say I haven’t dealt with my past. 
I have horrible wedding disaster dreams.
I can’t find the perfect dress.
I have to manipulate him to get my way.
An old boyfriend asks me to run away with him.
My best friend says I’m going to ruin everything.
And forever starts to sound like a really long time.
Which totally freaks me out and makes me question everything I know.
Should best friends get married? 
Will my past affect our relationship?
Are my horrible dreams a warning?
Will I ever find a dress?
Could his sexiness be clouding my judgment?
Am I going to ruin everything?
Or is it just a case of cold feet?
And then I have to decide. Am I willing to give up on true love forever, or am I going to listen to my heart and marry him?

And I can’t wait for the third installment; That Baby!!!

 I also can’t wait to meet the fabulous Jillian at the Boston Author Event in March!

After those two books I knew I’d read anything Jillian wrote.
I loved Stalk Me, Jillian’s new series; Keatyn learns the hard way not everything in life follows a script…and we meet Cush *sigh*

Gossip Girl meets Hollywood in this steamy new series by That Boy author, Jillian Dodd.
Keatyn has everything she ever dreamed. Her life is following the script she wrote for the perfect high school experience. She’s popular, goes to the best parties, dates the hottest guy, and sits at the most-coveted lunch table. 

She’s just not sure she wants it anymore.

Because, really, things aren’t all that perfect.
Her best friend is threatening to tell everyone her perfect relationship is a scam. 
Her perfect boyfriend gets drunk at every party they go to. 
It’s exhausting always trying to look and act perfect.
And, deep down, she isn’t sure if she has any true friends. 

To add to the drama, her movie star mom has a creepy stalker. 
A hot, older man flirts with her and tells her they should make a movie together.
And she’s crushing on an adorable surfer. Dating him would mean committing social suicide.

So she writes a new script. One where all the pieces of her life will come together in perfect harmony. 
But little does she know, there’s someone who will do anything to make sure that doesn’t happen.

Book two of The Keatyn Chronicles is Kiss Me. Since it’s release on November 26th, it has received 157 five star reviews.

I’ve always written scripts for my perfect life.
But no way could I have ever scripted this.

My life is so far from perfect, it’s not even funny.

All because of a stalker.

I’m at a boarding school, where I have to lie about who I am.

I can’t see my family.

I’m tutoring a hottie god that tortures me with his smile.

The most popular girl already hates me.

But there’s this boy.

This hot, sweet, sexy boy.

So I’m going to stop trying to script my life and just live it.

Because who knows how long I have left.

  1. Thanks so much for participating in this and all your past support for my books. Indie authors would never make it if it weren’t for all the great book bloggers spreading the word about their books 🙂
