October 2017 Newsletter
This month Oceanview Publishing was well represented at the Frankfurt International Book Fair in Frankfurt, Germany. This is the largest venue of its kind, and is attended by about 40,000 people from all parts of the world. The meeting covers every aspect of the book world but the emphasis is on the licensing of foreign rights. So we are there trying to get our books licensed by publishers in other countries who will publish and sell our books in their native language. We presently have our books sold in about 25 countries around the world.
Now let’s talk about what’s new from Oceanview. This month we see the return of Bobbi Logan in Seven Suspects from Renee James. This book follows the very successful A Kind of Justice and shows a harder, more determined side of Bobbi, and she needs it to fend off a stalker whose actions get more threatening with each passing day. Bobbi has survived rape, gender transition, bullying, and a murder investigation, and she is determined to never again be a victim. So beware, stalker, you may become the stalked. A gripping mystery that is action-packed.
October also sees the trade paperback release of Goliath by Shawn Corridan and Gary Waid. This action-packed thriller follows a ragtag salvage crew as they race toward a burning behemoth—a Russian tanker that has run aground in the Bering Sea. Only, there’s much more at stake than the crew could possibly imagine. A fantastic page-turner.
Our September release, Into a Dark Frontier by John Mangan, is wowing the reading world with its near futuristic look at a new world: a depopulated Africa where lawlessness and barbarism prevail. Frightening, exciting, thrilling—don’t miss it.
Next month, Oceanview releases Come Home from New York Times best-selling author Patricia Gussin. In her seventh novel, Gussin moves into the international arena as a parental abduction of a five-year-old boy leads to a chase from Philadelphia to Cairo, Egypt, to Monrovia, Liberia, to Uruguay and back to Cairo—and right in the middle of the “Arab Spring.” Unique characters and a political overlay coupled with gripping action make this book a must read. So be ready November 7th when this book hits the market—or preorder from your favorite book provider.
Also in November, two of Oceanview’s most popular books will emerge in paperback: Deep Six by D. P. Lyle and Dark Fissures by Matt Coyle. If you have not yet met Jake Longly and his sidekick and main squeeze, Nicole, Deep Six is your chance as they run into some really bad folks. And Rick Cahill—in Anthony Award winner Matt Coyle’s Dark Fissures—once again tries to help someone in trouble, but once again, at his own peril.
Some additional good news from Oceanview: Revelation by Carter Wilson was named a co-winner of the RONE Award and Fatal Odds by John F. Dobbyn is a finalist in the Book Excellence Award. Congratulations, Carter and Jack.
