Infiltration Writer Lee Dodson Grabs 14,000,000+ Responses, Up 9,000,000 in 3 Weeks, Sets Down Underground Homeland Terrorism Survey


Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) February 26, 2013

They could be doing it right now

See how easily and cheaply Al Queda could set up shop heretoday.

It was time to stop, Lee Dodson, author of Infiltration, and the Homeland Terrorism Survey. Over 14,000,000 responses, a jump of 3,000,000 a week for the last three weeks, the survey did its job. Im surprised it did so many responses, but it became a thing of its own.

The authors project was expected to gather perhaps fifty- to sixty-thousand responses due to the underground nature of the advertising and promotion of the survey and its piggy backed novel. Dodson signed onto the Vocus Marketing Strategies and used the self help program to promote book sales.

Progress was exactly as expected in the first few weeks, but as more press releases came out, the survey numbers picked up to a hundred thousand per day, then half a million, and finally to the three million a week at last count.

The author of Infiltration, a book which describes a major and plausible terrorist attack on the Southern United States, Lee Dodson mounted a survey to plumb public consciousness on todays risks of domestically placed weapons as a way of gauging his readership possibilities.

I wrote the book, then, curious to see if my potential audience was thinking the way I was, so I sat down and asked the questions I wanted to be asked. I needed a discussion point which would set my writing apart from other writers, and I had to satisfy my own questions as to the general outlook on Border and National Security, Dodson said.

My media interviews convinced me to an even greater degree the disconnect between the federal government and us regular folks out here, doing our jobs, our day to day living. The feds dont get it, but my readers do. I intentionally used mature characters who have seen, or know that we live in, dangerous times, but younger people agree more than I expected, Dodson opined.

Although Infiltration is a work of fiction, its sort of an indictment of Border Security, the foolish gun policy out of Washington and big city pols, and every reader knows it. The survey backs it up. My audience is asking if anyone is paying attention because it doesnt look that way, the writer concluded.

Participants in the survey have not been limited to the United States. Asia (China), India. Australia, France, South Africa also were major showings in the later weeks of the posting with a 20% response rate.

We are seeing nothing 5-Star reader reviews as the message of the book gains importance. Its a fast, fun read, I never meant to be called a Homeland Terrorism writer, but thats what happened because some local newsperson wrote the words, and they stuck, Dodson shrugged. Infiltration has been called C-4 (plastic explosive) on an e-reader or a Kindle.

What readers are saying:

Enjoyed this book. Scary idea. Living in Arizona brings this too close for comfort! Hard to put this book down.

This book is exceptional. I have never been drawn into a book as fast as this one drew me in. It’s exciting…..really exciting. The characters are so well defined that I felt like I knew them almost immediately.

This book held my attention from the beginningThis man has hit every avenue with what is going on in our world today do you feel safe? Do you understand that this could happen in real life? Read the book and get ready.

This is a very exciting book from start to finish. It is well written without the stumbling found in many Kindle bargains. The plot is compelling, but implausible – or is it?

Dodson appears on Gary Shelers Morning Show (KAAA/KZZZ) in Arizona Feb. 26, 2013 at 7am MST, and expects more appearances to be announced on Conservative talk-radio shows in the next few weeks (TBA). Ill take anyone that asks, is Dodsons reply. The writer will be discussing the results of the survey.

We went for an underground best seller, doing press releases, the survey, using Facebook, Twitter, and getting mentions from very kind bloggers like Glenn Reynolds at instatapundit.com. It looks like it is working because readers are writing me asking for a sequel. Its exciting, Dodson said. For now, though, the survey of 14,000,000 is a pretty big deal. Ill be putting another up soon.

The Digital Writer, Sean Platt, joins Co-author David Wright and Popular Blogger, Johnny B. Truant for the Self Publishing Podcast


Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) May 09, 2012

Kings of serialized fiction, David Wright and Sean Platt have joined popular blogger Johnny B. Truant for the Self Publishing Podcast. The podcast is designed to help writers learn the ins and outs of indie publishing with intelligence, humor and practical information.

Digital publishing is in a constant shift. Writers now have a ridiculous amount of opportunity, said Truant. Even traditionally published authors are turning self publishing. But that doesnt mean they know how to make the right decisions when it comes to modern publishing. Weve been in the trenches of blogging and social media for years, and want to help other writers do what were doing.

Both Platt and Truant are fluent bloggers and marketers, and both have written for some of the worlds largest blogs, such as Copyblogger, Problogger, and Zen Habits. Platt and Wright have seen remarkable success with their weekly Kindle serials, including landing on the Top 100 Rated Fiction Books of All Time on Amazon, for their debut series, the post-apocalyptic horror serial Yesterdays Gone.

The trio launched the new podcast, located at SelfPublishingPodcast.com, in mid April. Born from a desire to help others achieve the success they were achieving themselves.

The podcast is packed with advice, best practices, and interviews with experts would help others avoid the trial and error theyd had when publishing their own work.

Indie publishing was once expensive and mostly ineffective, said Wright. Now, anyone can publish. And profit. But its also trickier, and youll never sell millions of downloads if you dont put the pieces together correctly.

The Self Publishing Podcast, which publishes new episodes every Thursday, covers topics such as how to get started self-publishing, how to make a compelling book cover, how to market your book, writing and editing tips, how to format for different platforms, and much more.

The podcast is peppered with Truant, Wright and Platts trademark wit and friendly camaraderie. The show is available on the iTunes, Blackberry and Zune podcast directory, as well as non-subscription play through the website at SelfPublishingPodcast.com.

In addition to their serialized fiction, Platt publishes nonfiction through his publishing company Sterling & Stone, as The Digital Writer.

Johnny is known for his humor novel The Bialy Pimps, which debuted with a giant splash through blog publicity in February.

This is a brave new frontier, said Platt. The good news is that any good writer can now make a full-time living purely as a writer, but you must first nderstand how to make it work in order for that to happen. Thats why we started this podcast to help writers understand, and to finally realize their dreams of publication.
