February 2016 Newsletter

February is living up to its reputation as the coldest month of the year. At least in this part of the world. The north is frigid and even the south is pretty chilly. This is reading weather at its finest. A fireplace, a cup of tea, coffee, hot chocolate, or something stronger, and a wonderful book are the requirements. So here is what Oceanview Publishing has for you.

Our February release, The Squandered, by David Putnam is off to a strong start. Fans of Bruno Johnson, the very tough but soft-hearted ex-cop and ex-con and his wife Marie will now get the chance to meet Bruno’s estranged and long-incarcerated brother, Noble, whose two young grandchildren have been kidnapped. Bruno and Marie risk their freedom and their lives, and the loss of their ten “rescued” children to return to the United States to help Noble. This truly is a poignant crime thriller. It should not be missed.

In March, we will release Pegasus Down from Philip Donlay, the sixth Donovan Nash thriller. As Donlay’s popularity grows, so does the fan base of Donovan Nash. Nash is rapidly becoming one of our readers most sought after heroes. Pegasus Down will also give our readers the chance to witness the emergence of another hero , Dr. Lauren McKenna, Donovan’s wife and government agent, code name–Pegasus. While on a clandestine mission to extract a key American scientist from Slovakia, Lauren’s plane disappears–no mayday, no wreckage, and no known survivors. Donovan’s world is rocked by this news, and he immediately sets out on a mission to find her. What happens–I cannot divulge. You have to read the book. Publisher’s Weekly says “…Lauren is a standout, and she gives Nash a run for his money in smarts and determination: though Nash may be coming to her rescue she doesn’t need him to.” How about that–outstanding male and female protagonists in one book! This is a book for every reader.

February will also see the release in paperback of two of our most popular books, Deadly Echoes by Philip Donlay to accompany his March release of Pegasus Down, and After the Fall, the latest work by New York Times best-selling author Patricia Gussin. If you haven’t read these books this is your chance to pick them up at a bargain price.

Also, a reminder that Don Bruns’ laugh-out-loud “Stuff” books are still on sale through today as an ebook bundle of the entire seven book collection for $9.99. Only a little more than a buck a book for a very entertaining thriller series.

A big piece of news from Oceanview–author Carter Wilson hit the USA TODAY best-seller list with his recent release, The Comfort of Black. If you liked Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, or even if you didn’t, you will love The Comfort of Black. Congratulations, Carter, on achieving this high level of success and recognition.
