Dec. 23, 2011 - PRLog -- Gifters this Christmas see only a few upward-trending options for bequeathing high-tech gadgets upon their friends and family, and all of them center around portability.

Not counting Android phones, it all comes down to Tablets.  Samsung Galaxy Tab and Asus Transformer product families are always contenders, and surprisingly, so are the eBook reader units like Barnes & Noble's Nook and Amazon's new Fire, both of which are really just tablets with special user interfaces that focus their use on books and movies.  And all this buying of portable contraptions for content consumption is a boon to sales of the better novels and nonfiction books on the market.

Take for example the suspense-mystery-thriller ARCHANGEL, by Michael Vorhis. A novel that didn't exist a year ago, its popularity ramp has escalated beyond the norm, already enjoying a large readership base in 15 countries on four continents. It owes its impressive climb to a universally intriguing plot and deft literary execution. Noted author and publisher Emily Hill of A.V.Harrison Publishing commented, "Vorhis more than holds his own. He has style...the presence, and skill, to stir in the most three dimensional characters any debut novelist has a right to claim." Author Robert DeCoteau describes the work as, "a class five hurricane...sheer storytelling genius...takes fiction from good to great."  Readers have even said the debut author has "rekindled their interest in fiction."

Still, the monthly sales over the last three quarters is dwarfed by what the publisher is seeing now. "You can't just hand someone a new way to read books with nothing loaded onto it," says FreeFlight Publishing House, "and people are buying the platforms and then choosing the titles they've read and loved, or those they've heard great things about and been wanting to read, and giving them as part of the gift. It's like handing someone a cake box with fine pastries in it. Sure beats an empty tupperware tub."

Author Michael Vorhis, who claims to have spent eleven years in the creation of ARCHANGEL, couldn't be more pleased. "Ultimately an author wants readers," he says, "especially those who love great works. I truly love my beautiful paperback edition, but eBook technology is also so compelling. It keeps the costs down and the reading up. Great works priced the way we're doing it right now are such a bargain. So I love these steep up-surges in readers, because everybody wins."

Vorhis currently enjoys a nearly-5-star rating for ARCHANGEL when averaged across all sales channels. "Smart people want real characters who speak and act believably. And they like to be tantalized with great suspense. ARCHANGEL broods before it simmers, and simmers before it boils. When it erupts in earnest, you're very glad you'd let it take an intriguing pace."

In any edition, this collectible debut novel from a rising author is being chosen by many as a unique Holiday gift. Still at promotional prices, Archangel is available on Amazon in paperback and eBook formats (  It is also available at Barnes & Noble in paperback ( ...) and eBook ( ...) formats.  Archangel is also available at Books Inc. retail stores throughout the San Francisco Bay Area ( ).
