Welcome to Issue 31 of the SUPERIOR BOOK PRODUCTIONS newsletter!

Irene WatsonIt’s with sadness that I note in this issue the passing of Irene Watson, the owner and managing editor of Reader Views. Irene was one of my best friends in the publishing world, helping me to get my start in being an editor, and always ready to give marketing advice. I worked closely with her doing book reviews and interviews with Reader Views, as well as being a co-host with her and Victor Volkman for the Authors Access Internet Radio Show.

Irene was a true best friend to self-published authors. She will be greatly missed, but her vision will live on as her family and the staff continue the business. If you are looking for help marketing your book, visit Reader Views to see the many services it provides, from bookreviews to radio interviews and from press releases to book trailers.

Thank you, Irene, for being a pioneer and inspiration to us all. Your legacy will live on.

And I know Irene would be the first to remind us that books make great gifts for the holidays, especially for children!

Happy Holidays everyone!

Monsters Below by Laura S. and William L.B. WhartonLaura Wharton and her ten-year old son, Will, have written the first of a planned series of children’s novels titled Mystery at the Lake House. In this first book, Monsters Below, we are introduced to Jock Avery, who has just finished fourth grade and is about to spend the summer with his grandparents at their home on Longleaf Lake. Jock is further excited when he learns his grandparents have new neighbors, including two children, Lynna, also ten years old, and her younger brother, Chip, age seven.

Spending the summer on a lake would be ideal for any boy or girl, but Chip, who once visited Loch Ness and claims to have seen its monster, is convinced that there is a monster in Longleaf Lake, and while Jock refuses to believe it is the Loch Ness Monster, when he starts hearing strange sounds coming from across the lake, he starts to wonder what could be causing them.

Southern Crosses by D.A. WinsteadIn his intricately woven new novel, Southern Crosses, D.A. Winstead offers an interesting perspective on the American South, South Africa, and the Foreign Service. The story begins when Sarah Johnson is appointed to a new position in the U.S. Embassy in South Africa. Sarah is part of a private female alliance that is determined to improve the United States’ perception in other countries, primarily by destroying the careers of less than deserving members in the Foreign Service, or at least exposing why those people are undeserving. Ambassador Tellson of South Africa is Sarah’s target this time. Sarah realizes that as a black woman competing with the upper echelons of the U.S. Government, she needs to be tough; in fact, she has learned it the hard way, having been mistreated in her career in the past by those above her.
