Celebrate World Teacher’s Day

What can you do?

First, thank a teacher who made a difference in your life. Whether you’re still in school or you haven’t set foot in a classroom in years, World Teachers’ Day is the perfect time for all of us to tell our teachers that their work paid off.

Second, consider donating to a nonprofit organization that supports educators, such as Teachers Without Borders or Teach for America.

Ryan’s Letters With a 4.9 Star Average Rating During Blog Tour

My blog tour for my new release, Ryan’s Letters, is not quite over yet, but the reviews have been pretty humbling so far, averaging 4.9/5 stars.  Here is a brief synopsis of some of the amazing reviews:

“Jax Jillian wrote with heart.  This book is a must read and even a reread.  The first book, Larkin’s Letters, tore my heart out.  This book builds your spirit.” — A Biblioromance

“On the heels of Larkin’s Letters, Ryan’s Letters is yet another deeply moving and well-written masterpiece by Jax Jillian.” — DJ Sakata, Books and Bindings

Ryan’s Letters is just as amazing as Larkin’s Letters was. It is just as eloquently written and just as beautifully tragic.  READ THESE BOOKS, its all I can say, you won’t be sorry!” – Drue Hoffman, DRC Promotions

“Jillian writes a beautiful, well-written, very moving story.  I highly encourage you to read this series. You will not be disappointed.” — Words Turn Me On

“Another wonderfully written emotional experience from author Jax Jillian” – Laura Roth, Laura’s Interests Book Blog (Top 150 Reviewers from Goodreads)

“Jax Jillian once again gripped my heart and squeezed.  I said this after Larkin’s Letters, if you don’t cry when reading this book, then you have no humanity…no heart…no love…no compassion for life.  I loved this one just as much as Larkin’s Letters.” — Lynn Barrett, Sassy Southern Book Affair

“This is an amazing book, so well thought out and written!” — Stormy Nights Reviewing

My dearest Larkin.

Help me.

I’m drowning.

It has been almost eight months since the love of his life, Larkin, passed, and Ryan Boone has tried to make good on his promise to her to keep living. The letters she left behind had helped him tremendously, but all of a sudden, he felt like he was drowning and only she could save him. The only way he could think to reach out to her was to write her letters, just like she did to him. He never thought that she would actually get them; after all, she was gone. But when he sees her sitting on their private dune reading his letter, his grief would never be the same.

A Love Letter to My Loyal Readers

My Dear Larkin’s Letters Fans,

As I sit on my bed sipping glorious hot coffee with a shot of French vanilla and enjoying the sound of the crickets echoing of off my window, I think of you.  I want to thank you for loving Larkin’s Letters so much.  It means everything to me – an unknown aspiring author who started writing just to cure my pathetic boredom and create an escape from the harshness of real life.  Some of you, I know by name — the few who have reached out to me personally to compliment my book and my writing.  Some of you, I have formed a friendship with – albeit a friendship created over the ever so impersonal spectrum that is social media.  Even though we have never met, I still consider you a friend.  You know who you are!  Maybe we will meet some day.  Although, I feel like we have already.

I never thought Larkin’s Letters would be so loved.  Even though it is not even close to making any Best Sellers list, the small audience it has reached has given it such wonderful reviews.  It is quite humbling.  I am just thrilled that I even had the chance to have it published so that it could reach an audience.  I can only dream that it continues to reach an even broader audience.

When I completed Larkin’s Letters, I never thought I would write a sequel.  Ryan’s Letters was not even a thought in my mind.  It’s words were never a whisper from my lips until I saw how loved Larkin’s Letters was.  And after reading it and re-reading it and re-reading it, the idea of the sequel slowly crept into my mind.  Not so much for myself or the readers who loved it, but more for Ryan, my main character.   As a writer, you become so attached to your characters; so vested in them.   They become your imaginary friends and you really want the best for them.  With that said, I knew that I needed to help him grieve.  I knew that his story was not quite over.  I felt like I needed to give him some closure.  And I truly feel that I was able to.  Two years later, but better late than never, right?

And with that, I present to you Ryan’s Letters.  It is finally available to the public tomorrow (9/29).  As a new writer, there is a little nervousness that it won’t be as good, and that it will be a disappointment to those who are expecting it to be as good as the first.  I hope you love it as much as you loved Larkin’s Letters.  I hope you love it as much as I love you!

Happy reading!

As Ryan Boone struggles to come to grips with not being able to keep a promise he made to his dying wife, Larkin’s Letters propels readers into the mind of Ryan as he struggles with frequent visits from her ghost and a series of letters she left behind.

Ryan has worked hard to become one of Hollywood’s most sought-after actors, but no matter how famous he became, he always remained loyal to his childhood best friend, Larkin James. When Larkin is diagnosed with leukemia, Ryan sacrifices his career to be by her side and in turn realizes how much he had always loved her. Throughout Larkin’s sickness, Ryan promised her he would never let her…
