New York, NY (PRWEB) September 04, 2015
The International Number 1 bestselling author and entrepreneur Daniel M. Harrison has released the first of three books which will attempt to fictionalise as a Trilogy the Millennial culture and mind-state. The Millennial Reincarnations, the first of the three books, was published on August 25th by Publick Media Publishing and it went to Number 1 in category fiction on Amazon only 2 days later. It is planned that along with the two other books in the Trilogy - due out later this year and early next year - the books collectively will form a collection dubbed The Millennial Trilogy.
So far, Harrison has received a whirlwind of publicity from the book launch, with 15 5-star reviews on Amazon from readers and fellow writers who have given The Millennial Reincarnations their nod of approval. Offers to buy the foreign rights of The Millennial Reincarnations have already been made. Harrison says the idea came from his thinking about Millennial culture and the deeper aspects of it, such as spiritual belief and approaches to personal relationships, not just workplace ideas which he says are more commonly discussed when the topic of Millennials is raised.
“Some time ago I was reading something that fellow technology evangelist Ted Coine wrote – that Millennial was really a mind-state as opposed to a process of intergenerational ageing. So I decided to run with that idea and really take the mind-set side of Millennial and encapsulate it in both a technological and spiritual context. And you know what I found – the two are pretty much the same thing, at the end of the day. We are technologies for and of and integrated into our spiritual selves and moving within our spiritual dimensions. That’s what the Trilogy is all about,” says author Daniel M. Harrison.
Further, the mainstream press has been quick to pick up on the unusual – but highly-commercial – idea of Harrison’s to write a fictional Trilogy spanning the next century and focusing on today’s hottest consumer market.
“The Millennial Reincarnations is a collage of stories set between 1990 and 2014, where the theme is not so much ideological as it is governed by the actions of the Millennial generation,” wrote Mattia Ferraresi in the prestigious Italian newspaper Il Figlio on September 3. “The interesting thing here about The Millennial Reincarnations is that it does not just line up the theoretical or moral dilemmas of man struggling with the prospect of a future post-human or trans-human self (which is not that new in and of itself), but the author instead explores the influence of this concept today, on how Millennials conceive of their work, the economy, their social bonds, their observance of the law, their sexual interactions, their accumulation of knowledge, as well as the criteria they use to make critical decisions about the kind of life they want and the aspirations they seek to cultivate.”
Foreign Rights Offers
Harrison also confirmed that three major publishers have all so far been in touch via publishing agencies overseas to enquire about making an offer on the international rights for the book.
“Book publishers in Turkey, the Middle East, and another European country – the publisher in question doesn’t want me to disclose which one just yet – will all likely make an offer in the coming month,” says Harrison.
In particular, Turkey looked like an interesting market, Harrison added, with a vibrant young emerging market population who consumes over 50 percent of its reading material in translated versions of English language originals. In the case of Turkey, the publisher, who Harrison declined to name, got in touch via their literary agent Nurchian Kesim, which has been around since 1971 and is one of the country’s largest agencies, partnering with the top NY agencies such as the Jane Rotrosen Agency and others.
“My publicist Dan Smith (of Smith PR) has been a tremendous help and early encouragement," said Harrison of his reasons for the book's success. "It was Dan who first recognised my writing before anyone and I really appreciate that. He has taught me to think big about it. And I do - in fact, someone told me this week to get ready for a six-figure offer,” Harrison says. “I told him back – I am always ready for those kind of offers! Why, isn’t everybody?”
