FEELING A BIT ARTSY...


I worked on a commission piece tonight featuring my favorite pulp adventuress, The Domino Lady. I'm not always thrilled with how I draw female character faces so I've been practicing. This one came out pretty good, I think. DL plays a mean game of dominoes. I left the commissioners name off.


And you know I can't send out a package without doodling on the envelope. The lady at the post office gets a kick out of them. The Flash is here to remind the Post Office to please do not send this envelope.

What do you think?

I love doing commissions. I don't get to do them as often as I'd like, but they're fun. If you're interested in one of your own, hit me up and we'll make it happen. Rates are pretty cheap, comparatively.

ALWAYS STRETCH BEFORE WRITING...


I stretched both the writing and leg muscles today. Added some words to the novel and walked a mile outside. The trick is making sure I do that every day. #amwriting

MODERN ART?

"I don't know art, but I know what I like."
Modern art? Or am I just scrubbing the glass stove top? 
Hint: I can't afford modern art.

AN ALTERNATE LOOK...

Alternate un-used cover by Jamie Chase
Jamie Chase shared this alternate cover for the graphic novel of our graphic novel adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs' At the Earth's Core we did for Sequential Pulp Comics and Dark Horse Comics on his Facebook page so I thought I would share it here. It's a beautiful cover. You can still find copies here and there.

This was a fun book. It was a real treat stepping into Edgar Rice Burroughs' playground, even for a short time. Though dated in some places, it is a great novel and I enjoyed re-reading it to prepare for this book. A fun project.

FEELING ARTSY...

Doing a little art yesterday. My first time (that I recall) drawing Hellboy. Mike Mignola's design work makes it look deceptively easy. Trust me, it is not. Click for a larger view.

Yesterday's Sketchapalooza continued with a visit by an old friend. It's been a long time since I drew R.O. and he won't let me forget it. R.O. and the Life In The Faster Lane cast were patterned after my family. R.O. is definitely my dad. You can see some of the old strips at http://fasterlane.blogspot.com (has not been updated in a long time. I'm planning a collection of Faster Lane strips this year. Adding some color to them. Fun trip down memory lane.

I packed up two packages of Bobby's Big Box O' Books yesterday and included a couple of box doodles before they go in the mail. Those are always fun to do.

It's not too late to get your Big Box O' Books. GET YOURS HERE TODAY!

IT'S NOT OFTEN I GO CRAZY OVER TOYS, BUT...


Justice League Assemble!

I looked all over for these Funko HeroWorld vinyl Target exclusives last week after I found the Joker/Luthor pack on a discount rack. I thought I had lost out on them after visiting 4 different Targets. I don't usually go GA-GA over figures, but these are great. Saw them and had to have them. Now I do. They are so cool. 
They also had some Scooby Doo ones that looked great, but my money only stretches so far. :)

TRYING TO SELL SNOW IN A BLIZZARD!


Yep. That says it all. Trying to sell snow in a blizzard sounds exactly like book promotion. It's not easy, that's a fact.

Today, I'm trying to write and not being overly successful. I'm also trying to come up with some new ways to promote the Snow books so I can get them in front of more readers. Sales need a good spike so we can continue beyond the initial 6 books. Busy, busy. #amwriting

A SNOW TRAPPED SNEAK PEEK!

Click for larger view.
Not final cover.
It's sneaky peeky time, boys and girls. Here's a snap of the opening few lines from the first draft of SNOW TRAPPED, the upcoming 4th digest thriller by Bobby Nash featuring fan-favorite character, Abraham Snow. Published by BEN Books.

Look for it March 2018.

Learn more about SNOW here and here.
Here's a better look at the copy that is pasted above:

###

The plan was simple.

They had rehearsed it back and forth, side to side, and twelve ways from Sunday. There was nothing that would get in the way of the crew’s objective. They had planned for every detail.

Tommy Reardon was the brains of the operation. It was he that first put the crew together eight years earlier when they took down a hidden vault in South Florida where a cabal of wealthy businessmen hid their dirty money from their less than legitimate endeavors. The take had set up each man on the team for life. They were all filthy rich and had gotten away without incident.

After all, what were their victims going to do, call the police and report that their ill-gotten gains had been stolen.

Of course not.

###

This is all first draft, of course. It could, and probably will, change somewhat.

As I have mentioned before, SNOW is my tribute to the action detective/p.i. stories I grew up with. This one leaps into action movie territory with a story that is clearly int he same vein as Die Hard. That's right. We're fighting bad guys in a building. Heh. I was so tempted to plant tongue firmly in cheek and call this one SNOW HARD, but I suspected there were many a jokester out there that would think it meant something else so we'll save that title for the porn parody. Ha!

HOLLIS P.I.'S LATEST CASE IS NOW ON AUDIO!


Hollis p.i. explodes onto audio!

Hard-boiled crime thrilling action at its best is now available as an audiobook at Amazon and
Audible.

Gary Phillips' Nate Hollis leaps from the comics to his first complete prose collection and now onto AUDIO for the first time! Authors Juliet Blackwell, Bobby Nash, Aaron Philip Clark, and Derrick Ferguson join Phillips to create six double barreled tales of mystery and action. The streets are mean, but they don't hold a stick of dynamite to Hollis, P.I. From creator Gary Phillips and Pro Se Productions. The audio book is read by Ferdie Luthy. Produced by Radio Archives.

"P.I. Nate Hollis originally sprang from the rich imagination of LA-based writer Gary Phillips, but he's so real and tactile he could climb off the page and buy you a bourbon. Now, four other authors are getting a piece of Nate, too, and this latest collection of Nate stories is wonderful. This is contemporary noir at its best, offering all the familiar pleasures of the genre, but giving them a modern makeover. Yes, this is a violent world that Nate inhabits, but he steers a true and moral course through the layers of deception, skullduggery, and sometimes worse that make these stories such high-density entertainment. Nate's a great character and these stories do him justice and more."
- T. Jefferson Parker, Author of The Famous and the Dead

Bobby's story in this collection is called"Naomi." Hollis has been hired by the parents of a missing young woman who came to Hollywood to become an actress, Hollis finds her, but it's too late. The hard life she fell into chewed her up and spit her out onto the hard, cracked asphalt streets of Angeltown. He might not be able to save her, but there is one thing Hollis can do, he can find Naomi's killers and make them pay for the life they took.

Learn more about Hollis P.I. below.

SPOTTED IN THE WILD-- EVIL WAYS AND AT THE EARTH'S CORE!


Spotted in the wild while I was at 2nd and Charles in Athens, GA earlier today. 

Seeing 2 copies of Evil Ways was a surprise. I don't think I've ever seen one in a bookstore, especially these early editions from my first, crappy publisher. These are rare books, indeed. I have a few in a box somewhere. That's probably it. Not signed so they we're not bought from me at a con. Each copy was $6.95. A great deal. The updated BEN Books' version is still widely available.

ERB's At The Earth's Core graphic novel by moi and Jamie Chase is almost out of print and discounted at stores for 1/2 price, only $7.50. There was 1 copy left at this location.

Seeing these made my day. Now, all I need is someone to go and buy them. Heh.

WE LOVE LISTENER REVIEWS-- BOX 13 EDITION!


We love reader (and listener) reviews! 

Big Thanks to Mike Porter for leaving a 5 star review for Radio Archives' Box 13 audio at Audible. Many thanks, Mike. It is appreciated.

Mike wrote:
"Excellent stories! If you're an OTR fan and am familiar with the late 1940's weekly radio version of Box 13, you'll enjoy Dan's new adventures. The authors have captured the spirit of the old shows, especially the very first one. A couple of the new adventures have a X Files feel to them, but they are fun. All the stories are set in the late 40's and early 50's and the topical references are historically accurate. And the reader is excellent."

I'm especially excited for Box 13 praise. Not only did I write 3 of the stories, but I also produced this edition so it holds a special place in my heart. Features stories by Jim Beard, Barry Reese, Andrew Salmon, and Bobby Nash. Cover by Douglas Klauba. Performed by Nick Santa-Maria.  Based on Box 13 starring Alan Ladd.

BOX THIRTEEN - ADVENTURE WANTED! can be purchased in audio and ebook formats at the following retailers:

I'm especially excited for Box 13 praise. Not only did I write 3 of the stories, but I also produced this edition so it holds a special place in my heart. Thanks again, Mike.
