Oceanview Publishing Partners with Amber Entertainment

Oceanview Publishing Partners with Amber Entertainment:
Amber Entertainment will develop feature films from Oceanview Publishing’s novels

LONGBOAT KEY, Florida – Oceanview Publishing announces that it has joined forces with Amber Entertainment for the development of feature films and other entertainment media formats from its catalog of titles. One of the country’s leading independent publishers of original mystery/suspense/thriller titles, Oceanview Publishing, by year’s end, will have published 40 titles.

The first title to be developed will be Ward Larsen’s The Perfect Assassin, which will be produced by Amber Entertainment’s Ileen Maisel and Lawrence Elman, with Oceanview founders Robert and Patricia Gussin and Susan Greger serving as executive producers. In the tradition of Tom Clancy and Daniel Silva, The Perfect Assassin is a tale of espionage and intrigue about a female American doctor sailing across the Atlantic whose boat is hijacked by an Israeli assassin.

According to Oceanview CEO Robert Z. Gussin, “At its heart, Oceanview Publishing is a content provider and partnering with Amber Entertainment, a content converter, is a natural and mutually beneficial partnership. Since Oceanview focuses on such popular entertainment genres as mystery, thriller, and suspense, we feel that partnering with Amber Entertainment will allow us to create a dynamic synergy.”

Moreover, Gussin adds, “Oceanview Publishing focuses on works that exhibit a strong sense of place and setting; compelling protagonists and supporting characters; tension that builds throughout a book’s narrative; seamless, gripping, and suspenseful storylines; and authenticity. With that in mind, we’re confident that Oceanview’s titles are uniquely positioned to make the transition into film and television.”

Created in 2009 by New Line Cinema veterans Ileen Maisel, Mark Ordesky, and Jane Fleming, along with renowned documentary and television producer Lawrence Elman, Amber Entertainment acquires and converts major intellectual property assets and brands into filmed entertainment. Amber Entertainment is based in London and Los Angeles.

Oceanview Publishing is headquartered in Longboat Key, Florida. Oceanview is a proud member of the International Thriller Writers and Mystery Writers of America.
