On November 2, 2017, she published a book titled "Secrets for the Mad: Obsessions, Confessions and Life Lessons". This book was a collection of personal stories, lessons, song lyrics, and photos of Dodie's that she wished to share so that she could help inspire her fans when getting through tough times or dealing with mental illness.[1]

Music

Dodie has posted many of her original songs online, the most popular being "An Awkward Duet" with Jon Cozart. She has also posted many ukulele covers of popular songs having covered the likes of Taylor Swift.

In 2014, Dodie joined fellow YouTuber Bry on his national tour of the UK. She then joined Bry the following year on his tour of Australia and New Zealand. In January 2015, she supported Bethan Leadley (MusicalBethan) on her UK Tour. In April/May of 2016, Dodie joined Tessa Violet and Rusty Clanton (and Jon Cozart on some shows) on a US tour. She then returned to the US with Tessa, Rusty, and Jon (again in some shows) in October 2016. 

On November 18th, 2016, her first EP, Intertwined, was released on Spotify and iTunes. It includes 6 tracks: "Intertwined", "I Have a Hole In My Tooth (And My Dentist Is Shut)", "Absolutely Smitten", "Life Lesson", "Sick of Losing Soulmates", and "When (Live)".[2] "Absolutely Smitten" was a properly produced version of a song she had previously shared on her YouTube channel back in 2013[3] and "I Have a Hole In My Tooth (And My Dentist Is Shut)" was fully produced by Dodie herself. The EP altogether entered the UK album chart at 35. 

In March 2017, from the 12th to the 19th, Dodie went on tour over the UK, with Rusty Clanton as her support act.

On August 11th, Dodie released her second EP You. It includes 6 tracks: "In the Middle", "6/10", "Instrumental", "You", "Secret for the Mad" and "Would You Be So Kind".[4][5] "You" reached no.6 on the official UK charts.

In 2018, Dodie started the year by releasing a new single "Party Tattoos," which would be a standalone single on January 1st.[6] She then went touring in Europe through February and March. Upon returning to the UK, she set off for more touring throughout the UK and Ireland through March and April in which the tour was titled "The Spring Tour," where she was supported by the acts Fenne Lily and Skinny Living. Her touring in 2018 didn't stop there though as she then went touring again in September with Tessa Violet in the US.

On January 18, 2019, Human, Dodie's third EP, was released. It includes 7 tracks: "Arms Unfolding", "Monster", "Not What I Meant" (featuring Lewis Watson), "Human" (featuring Tom Walker), "She", "If I'm Being Honest", and "Burned Out".[7][8] Of all of the tracks, only three were new to those who had been following Dodie for awhile: "Arms Unfolding", "Monster", and "If I'm Being Honest". "Arms Unfolding" is the second song of Dodie's that she's fully produced by herself and after she released the EP shared that she had hidden the lyrics to the song in her videos on YouTube.[9] "Not What I Meant" was previously a duet between Dodie and Dom Fera in 2018 with a completely different title: "Bitter Content", which was based off of his short film, "Content" (2017)[10] and "Human" had previously been a duet between Dodie and Jon Cozart who goes by Paint on YouTube back in 2016.[11] "She" was a song originally written in 2014[12] and "Burned Out" was shared at the end of 2017[13] on YouTube, both are tracks that Dodie decided to properly produce for this EP. The EP debuted as number 5 on the official UK Albums Chart.[14]

To celebrate the release of Human, Dodie went touring in Europe in February and March. While on tour she performed a song that hadn't been released at the time. A few weeks after she came home from touring, she released the single, "Guiltless" on May 27, 2019.[15]
