7 Less Common Ways to Follow P. H. Solomon

Readers can connect with me via social media and a few other ways. Here are the ones you may not know about…


I’m always thrilled when readers contact me. A couple of years back, a friend of a friend got called me on the phone to ask about getting The White Arrow and gushed about his enjoyment of The Bow of Hart Saga. I was more than happy to listen and help the caller find the book.

That call and a few emails makes me realize that not everyone knows how to find me or where the books are. Here are some ways to follow me that you may not have realized (I’ll end this post with a list of the more common social media links you may want).

Lesser Known Ways to Follow My Work

First, you can find me at my Amazon Author Page. Here you can view all my books in every format they are available (especially on the book page where you can click between e-book, paperback, hardcover, and audio). You can read my bio as well as see posts from this site ported into the page. From individual book pages on Amazon (or most any retailer where a book is available) you can usually share the book on Twitter and Facebook. Shares are always welcome. You can also follow me on Amazon by clicking the follow button on my author page. Click the link or the icon to view the page and follow.


BookBub is another site where you can find my books. It’s both a reader community where you can recommend books as well as a promotional service for authors. The site is popular among reads. Readers can also sign-up for daily email book deals and announcements of new books.


Goodreads is another reader community, but authors are also present too. Writers can post an author profile, offer giveaways, interact with readers, answer questions, and host groups. I answer questions and host a private fan group named Marston’s Station which is a place name in The Bow of Hart Saga. It’s a growing group where I’m posting first view information, news, and some little-known deals. Your invited to join, but this link is only good for 30 days so let me know if you need an updated link.


Even Less Known Ways to Follow Me

Some of these site are just not thought of enough by readers looking to follow developments from authors, but they can be engaging and helpful:

My audio publisher is Podium Audio. The books currently covered are the three full-length novels from The Bow of Hart Saga and the two prequels (Trading Knives and What Is Needed) which are only available from my newsletter sign-up. Podium also graciously provides me with an author page and a list of associated audio books. You can find logos to follow me from this page on Podium’s site.


Wattpad is more of writer development and reader site. But you can find quite a lot about a writer there too. I’ve posted some free content from some of my works and try to add some regularly. This is another place to follow where you can often find some newer content as well as samples. If you like the feel of something in development, this is a good place to visit and follow me.


Reddit is a popular social media platform with a wide range of topics. Authors are not usually too active on this site, but you can find me there and interact with me, even leave comments in groups related to Fantasy books. It can be an interesting web community.


This one is not exactly a social media, but it is very handy for e-book readers. Authorgraph allows you to request digital autographs you can place inside an e-book. Instructions are included and you can ask for the autograph at any time. This is especially good for me since I don’t get to book conventions (maybe sometime soon) so it’s a good way to hand out autographs. If you request one, please share the link on social media so others will know about it.


The Usual Ways to Connect:

As promised, here are the more common ways to connect with me. Of course, you are welcome to connect via this site and leave comments too:

Audio Status for The Cursed Mage Case Files

The Order of the Dark Rose is out in e-book, paperback, and hardcover. What about audio plans?


The Order of the Dark Rose is published and has been submitted for audio publication with Podium Audio.

With the publication of The Order of the Dark Rose, I chose to wait regarding an audio book version. The reasons were myriad, but my focus was more on the e-book which was probably done too soon due to illness. But the book was already in pre-order so it had to go.

Now, the book has been out for a while and is doing well enough. It’s been a bit more rocky since I’ve had little energy to really push the book, let alone pursue reviews.

The Unseen Hand is due out this year. Will it be available in audio soon after? That’s the goal for The Cursed Mage Case Files Series.

With the upcoming release of volume 2 of The Cursed Mage Case Files, The Unseen Hand, due out as soon as I can complete the revision, my focus is changing somewhat. Of course, I want to release this book and volume 3, The Nine Jewel Heist, this year and in print. However, audio is quickly becoming a consideration – one way or another.

Audio book requests for The Order of the Dark Rose are starting to arrive which means it’s time to think about this format. It was a surprise to have an opportunity to even do audio for The Bow of Hart Saga when Podium Audio contacted me. Now, I have a relationship with the company so it makes it somewhat easier to approach them. I’ve submitted a request for audio consideration since it’s time to move in that direction. I suspect I’ll know something soon. There is a back-up plan for audio if the interest isn’t there, so I’m not too concerned. It would be nice to fit these version in with the releases of the next two books, but that may not happen. I do plan for this format regardless, so don’t be surprised if it works out sooner rather than later. How it happens remains to be seen.

Meanwhile, I trudge on with my revision of The Unseen Hand and plans for The Nine Jewel Heist. Beyond these will be many more books in several series, and my plan is to release well in several formats – even into bookstores if all goes well with my plans about Archer’s Aim Press. But more on this last point another time.

For now, I’ve set audio in motion for The Cursed Mage Case Files. If the submission doesn’t work out, I’ll share more of my plans then. Until that time, it’s a wait and see process.

Admittedly, I’ve been out of pocket for most of the last five months getting over Covid. I’m still laid-up but more cognizant of things and playing catch-up the best I can with what energy I have. I was exchanging email yesterday with the head of acquisitions with Podium Audio (my audio publisher) about another matter when she mentioned news about Costco. I searched my email and found a message from January (sigh, missed it at the time) that mentioned the audio publisher now has a blog with their news. Sure enough, there was the post about Costco.

I was a little bothered that I missed this development but suddenly pleased to find my titles are featured in the Costco Audio Bookstore app. I went out to the website and did a search and found them there – at discount for the entire series. That’s wonderful news and I’m pleased to share it here for anyone who shops with Costco or wants to use their new Audio app. So that was a fun little highlight to share today. Here’s the web link to the audiobooks or click the link below the audio covers below to visit the Costco Audio Bookstore online.

Meanwhile, have a look at The Bow of Destiny: Book 1 of The Bow of Hart Saga

– The Bow of Destiny

 Haunted by his past. Hunted in the present. Uncertain what is real.

This unique epic fantasy will keep you turning pages as Athson discovers his destiny is both inconvenient and unavoidable.

Athson has seen things that aren’t there and suffered fits since being tragically orphaned as a child at the hands of trolls and Corgren the mage. 

When a strange will mentioning a mysterious bow comes into his possession, Athson’s not sure it’s real. 

But the trolls that soon pursue him are all too real and dangerous. And they serve Corgren and his master, the hidden dragon, Magdronu.

Athson is drawn into a quest for the concealed Bow of Hart by the mystic Withling, Hastra. 

But Athson isn’t always sure what’s real and who his enemies are. 

With Corgren and Magdronu involved, Athson faces frequent danger, his grasp on reality, and the reasons behind his tragic past.
