Beyond Expectations

Philip HarrisBooks, Indie Publishing0 Comments

Back on June 14th I launched the box set of all three of my Leah King books (The Girl in the City, The Girl in the Wilderness, and The Girl in the Machine). I had modest expectations for the collection – the books have been around for a while and although they do pick up a few sales it’s not a “hot” genre. Still, I set up a few adverts and let my newsletter know it was coming out. Two and a half weeks later and I’m stunned. The box set has already sold twice as many copies as my previous best selling title (Glitch Mitchell and the Unseen Planet) and far exceeded the sales of the individual volumes. It’s been sitting in the top 20 Young Adult Dystopian Science Fiction charts along with titles like The Hunger Games and Divergent. It even made it to the top slot in the dystopian science fiction hot release chart (once James Patterson had got out of the way. In a way it makes sense – I’m selling over 500 pages of dystopian fiction for 99c – but still, there are literally millions of books out there people could be buying and I’m … Read More

Hey, It’s Saturday

We interrupt my regularly scheduled absence with a quick update. The box set of The Leah King Trilogy launched on Wednesday and its going extremely well. Far better than I hoped. Thanks to everyone who’s bought the book so far. If you haven’t, you can get your copy from Amazon right now by clicking HERE. I’m pushing on with the first draft of Zombie Book 3 (working title). It’s going very well and I’m racing toward the big finale which is always the bit I enjoy most. When I’m not writing or refreshing the Amazon sales dashboard, I’m getting in some reading. At the moment I’m in the middle of Clara Coulson’s Soul Breaker, the first in the City of Crows series. The books center around the Department of Supernatural Investigations and their fight against the various supernatural nasties that have a habit of popping up to cause mayhem. I’m enjoying it so far and there’s a few other books in the series that I’ve already picked up.   I’ve also been gradually getting back to running after a disastrous BMO Half Marathon at the beginning of the month. Everything was going well and I was on track for a … Read More

Out Now – The Leah King Trilogy

Philip HarrisBooks, Indie Publishing0 Comments

It’s launch day! I’ve created a box set of all three of my Leah King ebooks (The Girl in the City, The Girl in the Wilderness, and The Girl in the Machine). Yes, they don’t really come in a box but you know what I mean. I tried to up the stakes and the action with each successive book, and I’m very pleased with how the trilogy turned out. More importantly, readers seem to agree. Feedback on all three books has been excellent. The normal price for the set will be $5.99 but for a short time I’m offering the complete set for the ridiculous price of 99c/99p. That’s over 500 pages of dystopian cyberpunky science fiction goodness for less than a dollar/pound/whatever the equivalent is in your country. Or to put it another way, about $6 less than the books cost individually. So, if you haven’t read any of these, or you’ve read the first one or two, now is the time to pick it up. You can get your copy from Amazon right now by clicking HERE. With the oppressive Transport Authority controlling every aspect of their existence, Leah and her father do what they can to carve out a … Read More

Coming Soon on Audio…

Yesterday morning, I heard the news that Audible have opened up their ACX service to Canada and Ireland.  Basically, ACX is a service that allows anyone to produce and sell audiobooks through Audible (and elsewhere) – which means I can finally produce audio versions of my books. I think Glitch Mitchell and the Unseen Planet in particular would make a perfect audio book. I’ll be starting with The Girl in the City though because it’s shorter so there’s less risk. I’ve got no idea how long it will take me, even finding the right narrator is going to take a few weeks so it will be a while before I’m announcing anything formally, but I’m a big fan of audiobooks so it’s very exciting to finally be able to produce some of my own. Thanks to Robert Chazz Chute for posting about the Canadian ACX launch. Don’t forget I’ll be sending my short story collection to all of my newsletter subscribers once it’s complete so if you sign up now, you’ll get four free ebooks, plus the new collection later this year. CLICK HERE to get started.

Out Now – The Girl in the Machine

Philip HarrisBooks, Indie Publishing0 Comments

Today’s the day. Two years after the launch of The Girl in the City, the third and final book in the Leah King Trilogy, The Girl in the Machine, is available on Amazon. In a lot of ways, The Girl in the City was an accidental book. I hadn’t planned on writing it, but an idea centred around an event in Michael Bunker’s Pennsylvania series stuck in my mind. At that point, it wasn’t much more than the image of a young girl fleeing the city. I didn’t really know why she was running or what she was running from, and I can’t go into what appealed to me about the idea so much without entering spoiler territory. Suffice to say, Ethel the Muse was quite taken with this little scenario and wouldn’t shut up about it. Eventually, I gave in and wrote a novella in the hope it would scratch that particular itch and I could get back to working on Glitch Mitchell and the Unseen Planet. I wasn’t even going to publish it, but Michael encouraged me and in the end I went ahead, got a cover, had it edited and proofread and published it. Back then it had a different cover. I thought that would be it, … Read More

One Week to Go

Philip HarrisBooks, Indie Publishing0 Comments

There’s just one week to go before The Girl in the Machine launches. This is the point in an author’s life when the tension starts to mount. Will people like it? What if they aren’t happy with the way I ended the series? What if there’s a really bad typo on the first page? Did I get the name of Leah’s mother right? Only one week to go until I find out the answers to all those questions. For teenager Leah King, the war against the authoritarian Transport Agency is personal. With her home destroyed and her family dead, only TRACE gives her life any meaning. Under the mentorship of Sergeant Alice Williams, she’s learning how to travel through the virtual reality networks and is finally discovering her place in this dangerous new world. But a key TRACE operative has been captured. With TRACE leadership reluctant to act, Alice, Leah and the rest of their squad are forced to take matters into their own hands and attempt a rescue. The mission brings Leah face to face with a new and deadly enemy, who just may hold the secrets to her past. But time is running out, and Leah will be forced … Read More
