I'm Floored by

I created a Google Alert because I know that's one of the best ways to see if someone might be pirating your book. I had completely forgotten that it's also used to see if there are any mentions across the web, which means reviews, discussions, etc. So needless to say, I was absolutely floored to see Section 51 posted on the Check out the article here:

That first line plastered a smile on my face so large that I remembered what it was like to open up a Christmas gift and see that Santa had gotten me exactly what I had asked for.
Fans of supernatural/paranormal literature, of vampire or werewolf stories, and of the science-fiction genre – V. G. Harrison has one novel to satisfy all of you.
A huge thank you to the folks at the Examiner for the kind words. Though I haven't gone through all of the comments yet, thanks to everyone for the support. It's things like this that make me love Project Solstice all the more. I truly feel as though I'm on the right path.

Space 51, Where Are You?

As you might have guessed, now that Unit 51 has been released, I've turned my attention to working on Space 51. Seeing as I had done the unthinkable by ending Unit 51 on a cliffhanger, which I thought was necessary because that base was no longer the focus, I feel the need to get Space 51 out as soon as possible. My goal was no later than the end of the month.

So what's the problem? Space 51 has just taken a turn I didn't see coming. Don't get me wrong, I think it's a great turn. In fact, it opened the door for more short stories and/or novellas to come in the Project Solstice series and possibly introduce the world from other perspectives.

Okay, so...what's the problem?  It also means I'm not sure if I'll make the end of the month deadline. Trust me, I want to for marketing's sake. But the choices are to speed up the story and get something out on time for all of those new tablet owners or take however much time is necessary to tell a quality story and show my readers how much I love the world I've created and want them to do the same. I choose quality over speed. But, that doesn't mean I'm throwing in the towel yet. I'll  have to see what happens and keep you guys posted.

In the mean time, keep an eye on my word meter on the sidebar. Oh, and in case you're wondering about TBD, it has to do with a spinoff series I've been thinking about doing.

Release Day for UNIT 51

It's release day for Unit 51 and I couldn't be more excited! Or anxious depending upon how you look at it. I'll be updating this blog after my 5:00pm work day with where it's available and links to get there. The same will go for my website. BUT...if I've done my linking right on my homepage, you should be able to click on any of the retailer links, which will bring you to a page where all of my books are available, including Unit 51.

By the way, I've changed up the blurb a tad. Hopefully, it's better.

The aliens have stepped up their game via a series of pinpointed EMP attacks, starting with the weapons research base Unit 51. Like the base, Ava learns just how vulnerable she is after another EMP strike not only cuts her off from Ian 2, but crashes her plane. Her only hope for rescue is a small, Canadian town where the residents are werewolves.

They know about Project Solstice, and they're not the only ones. Dozens of supernaturals have joined forces to share not only their technological advances, but to prepare for a confrontation with Project Solstice. When an EMP barrage is launched on the supernaturals’ “safe ground”, it’s proof that the real war is with everyone on Earth regardless of their race.

A temporary truce has humans and supernaturals joining forces. But is anyone safe with paranoia, bigotry, and treachery running rampant among the Unit 51 ranks? Will Ava stay off an alien dissection table after mentally connecting with the alien war ship?
