We are pleased to have Christy Award winning author Jill Williamson back with us again. Jill is the author of the Blood of Kings series published by Marcher Lord Press. I held my breath when I asked her back, fearing she wouldn’t have forgiven the one less than stellar review published here. But perhaps the amazing interview and the second much more praise worthy review overturned any hard feelings.
What I find great about Jill’s books, is that they are the type that are either lauded with accolades or shunned completely. There seems to be no middle ground. I indeed find this awesome, because the dichotomy fuels interest and sales. People who are loyal do all the marketing for her. The ones who don’t like the books, only cause people to wonder why the drastic difference… and that too is a type of marketing that sends people out to buy the books and find out for themselves.
Either way, Jill’s the winner, right?
Jill’s a character first writer. For those of you who love character first books, you will absolutely love her’s. I recommend you get them for the YA fantasy fan in your family.
But it’s not just about the writing. Ask anyone connected with her publisher, and they’ll tell you she’s a marketing genius. She also travels the country speaking to young people. And she has an amazing story of faith, and how her love and passion for God helped to shape her writing career.
It’s that story that she shares with us today… the story of how she came to publication. And when you finish reading her story, don’t forget to check out her links, follow her where appropriate, and buy all her books!
Now, here’s Jill Williamson in her own words.
