Gulf Coast City

After witnessing a brutal attack on his sister, aspiring young pastor Jacob Carmichael is troubled by why there is so much evil in the world. His journey of self-discovery takes him out of the comfort of his small town in South Carolina, to Gulf Coast City, Florida. Rather than a safe place to begin a new life, Gulf Coast City proves to be a town steeped in human trafficking, greed and vice.

Jacob is swept up into an underworld of depravity he hadn’t known existed. As he becomes acquainted with criminals and their victims, his first instinct is to rescue those who are being destroyed. But first, he needs to come to terms with his own desires, sobriety and crumbling faith.

When beautiful Karina from Belarus arrives, Jacob’s life becomes hopelessly complicated. Just when he realizes he’s fallen in love with her, she becomes the prey of the human traffickers who are destroying so many lives. Will Jacob be able to find the courage necessary to take a stand against them? And if he does will it be in time to save Karina?


David Lloyd's Author Profile

David Lloyd is the independent author of the novel, Gulf Coast City and founder and president of Premier Press Publishing. The voyage from the first word recorded on his computer to final published copy took seven years. In that time David discovered and fell in love with the world of reading, writing and publishing. Things like beta readers, line editors, book cover designers and self publishing were all very new and very daunting, but David persevered and was able to fulfill his dream of publishing a book.

But the work did not end there. After publishing came promotion which seemed to be an even larger and scarier task than writing the book. This is where David found he could rely on his marketing skills as a former business owner to help other authors. Thus Premier Press Publishing was born.

David enjoys tennis and writing. His first novel called Gulf Coast City which was influenced from running an employment agency that provided temporary staff for anything from hotel housekeepers to exotic dancers and everything in between.
