A new, detailed biography of Jimmy Buffett is on book shelves now: Jimmy Buffett: A Good Life All The Way

In Jimmy Buffett: A Good Life All the Way, acclaimed music critic Ryan White has crafted the first definitive account of Buffett’s rise from singing songs for beer to his emergence as a tropical icon and CEO behind the Margaritaville industrial complex, a vast network of merchandise, chain restaurants, resorts, and lifestyle products all inspired by his sunny but disillusioned hit “Margaritaville.”

Filled with interviews from friends, musicians, Coral Reefer Band members past and present, and business partners who were there, this book is a top-down joyride with plenty of side trips and meanderings from Mobile and Pascagoula to New Orleans, Key West, down into the islands aboard the Euphoria and the Euphoria II, and into the studios and onto the stages where the foundation of Buffett’s reputation was laid.

Everyone loves a champion and yet somehow, we also like to see them fall. In FREE FALL TO BLACK, John H. Cunningham’s prequel to the page-turning Buck Reilly Adventure Series, we see how protagonist Buck achieves international fame, wealth and wins the trophy wife, only to lose it all, and ultimately reinvent himself in Key West.

Readers will travel back to 2006 and the peak moment of Buck’s success when he discovers the crypt of the Mayan Serpent King and royal treasury in Guatemala. Proclaimed “King Buck” by the media, he’s on top of the world—investors are pleased, his parents are proud and his bank account is flush. Then, he marries the world’s biggest supermodel. Life is too good to be true…

By 2008, with the world economy on the brink of collapse, Buck’s company with his childhood best friend Jack Dodson is under siege due to fraud, backstabbing and greed that turns their friends and family alike into adversaries. Hubris and hasty decisions lead to irreversible consequences, and when a business partner turns up dead, business as usual isn’t business any more.

For fans of the Buck Reilly series, buckle up for the turbulent ride that led him to Last Resort Charter and Salvage in Key West, and for new readers, this prequel will launch you into the six book series with your eyes wide open, and Buck’s scars still fresh.

John will host a signing for FREE FALL TO BLACK at Key West Island Books (513 Fleming St, Key West) on Friday, May 12 from 5-7 PM.

Jimmy Buffett is interviewed in the latest edition of Beaches, Resorts, & Parks. In the discussion, he reveals that he’s working on a new book:

As we talk books just a little more, Jimmy also tells me he is currently working on a new book. It’s still a ways from being finished but he says he is writing a page a day. “It’s a travel log. Starting in Long Island and ending up in Shanghai,” he tells me. His newest book, he says – just like his music- will be published by his own publishing company.

Put down the piña colada.

The calm Caribbean beaches are pierced by bullets and bombs in CRYSTAL BLUE, the third adventure/mystery novel from author John H. Cunningham. Call it a tropical island mis-adventure, call it hell on the high seas, either way prepare yourself for a white knuckle ride from Key West to the Virgin Islands featuring Buck Reilly, Cunningham’s wacky yet beloved protagonist.

Flying rock stars and celebrities to a remote island for a charity concert seems like breeze to Buck. But all hell breaks loose when the promoter disappears and one of the A-list stars is kidnapped. The charity’s vision to revolutionize women’s Choice by advocating adoption collides with a collection of threats that sends a Buck on a wild race through the Virgin Islands fighting forbidden lust and multiple crazed killers determined to derail the event. When the facts are turned upside down and all seems lost, Buck’s motley network of smugglers, arms merchants, and island eccentrics steer him to a full moon showdown to save not only the victims but the charity’s mission and the woman he’s falling for.

Crystal Blue is a white knuckle ride from Key West to the British and U.S. Virgin Islands. A thrilling addition to the Buck Reilly series that includes Red Right Return and Green to Go.
