If you have visited my blog lately, you probably know about that huge promotion that my novel, Forged by Greed was participating in on December 21st. There were 99 authors, offering their ebooks at 99 cents for just that one day. My friend and fellow YA author, Jillian Dodd masterminded and led this amazing event.
Toward the end of the day, ten of us were in the top 100 in the Kindle store. Amazon had assisted in the 24-hour price drop and also promoted our group through the Kindle Daily Deal. Rankings for most of our books went super high. Forged by Greed was listed in the Top 100 in several categories, ending the day with the overall Kindle store ranking of #997! Many of us sold hundreds of books, reached new readers, and made their novels permanently visible on Amazon website.
Jillian’s marketing skills and expertise are undeniable. But let’s not forget that she also is a talented writer. In 2011 Jillian has published her first book, That Boy, quickly followed by the sequel, That Wedding. Both books were (and still are) very popular, reaching thousands of happy readers. This year Jillian has released a brand new series, The Keatyn Chronicles. Readers have gone wild for Keatyn and her complicated life, never mind her even more complex love life. Keatyn may look as if she has it all in life, but she is actually far from happy. Keatyn embarks on life’s journey to understand herself, her sexuality, to figure out where she fits in, and how she deals with being separated from all she holds dear.
This short synopsis of book one, Stalk Me, provides a great summary:
Book two of The Keatyn Chronicles, Kiss Me was published shortly after the book one. Here’s the blurb:
