November 2017 Newsletter
This month we celebrate Thanksgiving and Oceanview Publishing has many reasons to be thankful. Particularly, we have found new facilities with the additional space that we so badly need. So we will begin 2018 no longer located on Longboat Key, Florida, but on the mainland on Main Street in beautiful downtown Sarasota. More room for everyone and even enough for some interns to come in and work with us. An exciting beginning to the new year.
We at Oceanview Publishing wish all of you a very happy Thanksgiving and many things for which to be thankful.
Our November release, Come Home by Patricia Gussin, is off to a roaring start bolstered by Gussin’s aggressive three-state signing campaign. After covering the state of Florida in November and December, Gussin moves on to Michigan and Pennsylvania for additional events. See her website for the schedule. For fans of Laura Nelson, there is a cameo appearance, but the new series, dubbed “The Identicals” by Gussin, features Laura’s twin physician daughters Nicole and Natalie. Fans of Laura Nelson and fans of Gussin will love the new series. You can watch the book’s trailer below.
December brings the launch of Blood Truth from Anthony Award winner Matt Coyle. Rick Cahill is back and now looking into the truth about his own blood—the blood of his father coursing through his veins. Why had his father spiraled into an early drunken death 27 years ago after being kicked off the La Jolla Police force? As Rick tries to find the facts and the truth, his life becomes more complicated by a woman that he still loves who asks Rick to determine whether her husband is having an affair. But an affair would be nothing compared to what Rick finds.
December will also see the release of A-List by highly-awarded author D. P. Lyle. The follow-up to Lyle’s highly successful Deep Six once again features reluctant P.I. Jake Longly and his sidekick and main squeeze, Nicole Jamison, as they head to New Orleans. It seems that Nicole’s movie-producing uncle has a serious problem. His mega-star actor Kirk Ford, somehow ended up in bed with the body of a 19-year-old college girl—and her uncle happens to be the head Mafioso in New Orleans. Not a healthy situation for Jake and Nicole to be asked to investigate. Great characters and an incredible New Orleans location assure success for this action-filled second in the Jake Longly mystery series.
Also in December, one of Oceanview’s most critically praised books will debut in paperback: Revelation by Carter Wilson, which has won the Colorado Book Award and the International Book Award, and was recently named a co-winner of the RONE Award.
January 2018 (can you believe it—already!) brings back very popular author H. Terrell Griffin and retired lawyer-turned-beach bum, Matt Royal in Vindication. Now Matt must go to that huge Florida retirement community, The Villages, to try and prove that his number one lady, Jennifer “J.D.” Duncan’s aunt did not commit a murder. Matt is forced not only into an investigation, but back into the courtroom. This book is a super combination of a police procedural and a courtroom drama. Not to be missed. More on this next month.
