September 2017 Newsletter
We survived Irma. As many of you know, we are located on Longboat Key, Florida. Some of our fans emailed concerns about the impact of Irma on the Florida Keys and concern for our safety. Just to clarify, Longboat Key is a barrier island off the coast of Sarasota on the Gulf (western) side of Florida. Fortunately, we were spared any major damage, but our hearts go out to so many of our fellow Florida residents and all the others who suffered greatly from Hurricane Irma as well as those in Texas recovering from the impact of Harvey.
Oceanview Publishing fortunately is able to continue to provide stellar reading material for your spare time. Sometimes a pleasant distraction is therapeutic and a good book can provide just that.
This month we introduced Into a Dark Frontier by debut novelist, John Mangan. The book has been met with remarkable praise. Mangan, a former military helicopter rescue pilot, certainly knows how to portray catastrophic situations and this book, set in near-future Africa, will keep you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end.
October brings the return of Bobbi Logan in Seven Suspects from Renee James, author of A Kind of Justice. Bobbi, a successful businesswoman and celebrated hairdresser has survived rape, gender transition, a murder investigation, and countless acts of bullying and bigotry. Now she is being stalked—but she has vowed never to be victimized again—and so she accumulates a list of suspects and hunts them down one by one until she confronts all six. But the number seven keeps haunting her—there must be a seventh, and when she finds him, Bobbi’s world implodes. A totally engrossing sensational read.
On September 19, Oceanview releases James’ previous novel, A Kind of Justice, in paperback. If you have not read this one, do it now.
November will bring the return of New York Times best-selling author Patricia Gussin, with her seventh novel, Come Home. New York Times best-selling author Lee Child says, “Brave, unflinching suspense—elegant, intelligent, and superb”. More about this one next month.
