Bobby Nash's Posts (115)


Oh, it's good to be back! Author Allan Hudson invited me to return to the South Branch Scribbler for a new 4Q Interview. We talk Snow Falls, The Avenger, BEN Books, horror, thrillers, Patreon, and I relate the story of the time we sorta adopted a monkey when I was a kid. You can also read an excerpt from Snow Falls. You get all of this, free of charge no less, and more HERE.

Thanks again, Allan. That was fun. I don't get to tell the monkey story very often.

Box Art Friday!


If you saw the Wonder Woman commission that was included in a Bobby's Big Bingeable Box O' Books Bundle, you know what comes next. That's right! It's Box Art Time! When people ask why I don't do likenesses, this piece is why. It's the 10th Doctor, but the face does not look quite right. Hopefully, the TARDIS in the background gets around that.

Want to get your own Box Art? All you have to do is buy something from my website or me directly and I will doodle on your box or envelope. Deal alert: get a sketch, 7 autographed books, and a DVD for only $50! This bundle makes a great gift too! Hit up Bobby's Big Bingeable Box O' Books Bundle HERE.

I Wonder...

 

Wonder Woman commission for a customer who picked up a Bobby's Big Box O' Books Bundle. I figure you can't go wrong with playing 'bullets and bracelets' although there are a whole lot of unnecessary lines on her new costume. 

Want to get a sketch of your own, 7 autographed books, and a DVD? Or, do you know someone else who might enjoy this as a gift? Hit up Bobby's Big Box O' Books Bundle HERE.

Closing Thoughts...

It's going on 2:30 in the morning so I think it's time to call it a night. But first, a few closing thoughts...

 
Today was a busy day at Nash Central. A lot of admin work, marketing, promotion, and the like. The big thing was designing and building the SNOW FALLS audio/ebook combo prize contest I posted earlier. This took a bit longer than originally planned, but things adjusted a bit after talking with a writer friend about it. He offered up a suggestion that made it a lot more work, but should give a bigger return on my time investment. Fingers crossed. I posted all of the pertinent details at www.ben-books.comwww.bobbynash.com, and all over social media. Please, tell your friends. I'd love to have lots of entries.
 
Working on the contest got me thinking about my plans for SNOW.

One of my goals for 2019 is to double the size of Snow's readership. I like to think this is an attainable goal, but it'll take some work. There are 2 more books left to round out series 1 and I have already started formulating plans for what happens beyond. I really like the stand-alone format. That will definitely continue. I'm still trying to decide if I want to do a 6 book over-arching story like with series 1 or just do stand alone stories and weave in subplots to set up future stories. I'm still kicking around ideas in my head on that one. 
 
I would love to hear your thoughts on the matter. Do you like the series and the big plot or is 1 book/1 story the way to go? Maybe mix-n-match. I'm curious to see what the characters want to do, but would love to hear your thoughts as well.

Tomorrow, my day is devoted to writing. At least that's the plan. There's an old joked that asks, "Do you know how to make God laugh? Make plans." Hopefully, after sharing the sale and contest info again tomorrow, I will be able to spend several good hours tapping away at the laptop.
 
Sweet dreams.

Big Thanks to author Win Scott Eckert for his kind 5 STAR GoodReads review of The Avenger Double Feature. The kind words are much appreciated, Win.

You can read the full review below and at https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/2648590820

Moonstone does right by The Avenger.

The Avenger: Double Feature boasts a novella-length tale by Bobby Nash and a short story by Chuck Miller.

Nash's tale, "Black Water," eschews run-of-the-mill gangsters for science fiction elements, and it works. If this seems odd to some Avenger readers, I would note that some of the original pulp novels by "Kenneth Robeson" (Paul Ernst), such as Tuned for Murder, River of Ice, The Flame Breathers, and Murder on Wheels (among others—including the whole idea of Benson himself and his odd powers!) have strong SF elements. Add in a secret cabal a la the Illuminati, and Nash is cooking with gas...or water.

If Nash goes big, Miller's "The Face of Death" goes small and intimate, with a neat little ghost-story-cum-murder-mystery, featuring only Benson (The Avenger) and his aide Nellie Gray. Sending all of The Avenger's other aides away on various matters allows Miller to inject some nice character moments for Benson and Nellie, along with just the right amount of banter that is not over the top. 

I ordered the hardcover direct from Moonstone Books, and you can too:

5/5 stars

Disclaimer: I am connected with Nash and Miller on Facebook, and have my own Avenger book forthcoming from Moonstone--none of which affected my enjoyment of this book, nor my review.


Thanks again, Win.

SNOW FALLS

An audio novella by Bobby Nash

Sometimes, half an inch is all that stands between life and death. Abraham Snow’s career ended with a single shot. Left for dead, the undercover operative barely survived an assassin’s bullet. After a long and painful recovery, Snow retires. He returns home to rest and recuperate only to get swept up in the family business, one just as dangerous as his previous profession. When he thwarts an assassination attempt on a diplomat who endangers his sister, Snow leaps into action to keep his family out of a highly trained killer’s crosshairs. Snow Falls is the first audio book in the continuing adventures of Abraham Snow.
