April 2019 Newsletter
April was a very active month for Oceanview. We were in attendance at the Left Coast Crime Writers Conference in Vancouver, British Columbia. What a magnificent city—mountains, oceans, beautiful buildings, and a very well attended writers’ meeting. And the weather was outstanding!
Oceanview was there to cheer for our outstanding author, Matt Coyle, a finalist for best novel for Wrong Light. Way to go, Matt. In addition, Matt has many additional public relations duties as the Master of Ceremonies for next year’s meeting in San Diego, Matt’s home town. In addition, several other Oceanview authors, D.P. Lyle, Ellen Kirschman, Pat Gussin, and Bob Gussin all served on panels. The meeting was well attended by writers and readers and was a huge success.
This month marks the release of Angel in the Fog by veteran (writer and military) author TJ Turner. New York Times best-selling author, Gayle Lynds, says, “…history comes to fire-breathing life in this tale of treachery and honor, politics, and war. Turner is an exciting new voice.” This book is true history and introduces you to the first Pinkerton women detectives. History buffs and thriller fans will love this story.
April will also see the launch of the paperback version of Gumshoe on the Loose by Rob Leininger. Once again we get a look at the zany and dangerous antics of Mortimer Angel, newly minted P.I. And once again, bodies and body parts seem to be attracted to Mort. This time Mort doesn’t try to solve crimes alone but hitches up with an alluring young assistant who changes his life.
Our March release, A Room Full of Night by TR Kenneth is off to a strong start as fans of contemporary intrigue with strong ties to the past have grabbed on to this one. Can the long arm of Heydrich’s Nazi intelligence agency reach into our present world? It sure looks like it can.
Next month R. G. Belsky returns with Below the Fold, another Clare Carlson mystery. Clare can’t seem to stick strictly to her role as a TV news director and continues to fall back into her investigative reporter role. Clare sure finds plenty to investigate, but she may be risking her job, her career, and maybe her life.
Some other great news—two of our books received those coveted *starred reviews—Vanishing in Haight by Max Tomlinson from Booklist and Treacherous Strand by Andrea Carter from Library Journal. Congratulations to Max and Andrea!
