SOMETIMES I GET ASKED STUFF... #38-- SUPER-SIZED HOLIDAY SPECTACULAR!

Welcome back to the 38th installment of Sometimes I Get Asked Stuff… another jam-packed super-sized edition. In addition to questions from fans and readers, I've also pulled questions from writing groups/blogs/facebook as well to round things out. Thanks for all of the amazing questions. Please, keep ‘em coming. I absolutely love answering them. Yes, even the silly ones from time to time.

I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving. It was a quiet affair for the Nash family this year, just a small meal with the family. With the holidays right around the corner, I decided to drop all of the gathered questions into one big stocking-stuffer of a Sometimes I Get Asked Stuff… I had to skimp on the photos/art this time around. Just the Q and A this time.

“I am extremely excited to re-launch the SNOW series in 2017,” says Nash of his creation. “This cast of characters in SNOW FALLS has become quite dear to me and readers since the original release. The question I get asked most often is, ‘when’s the next Snow coming out?’ Now, we finally have an answer.”

SNOW FALLS was originally released in March 2014 by Jeffrey Weber’s The Stark Raving Group and featured a beautiful cover is illustrated by Dennis Calero with the title and author treatment handled by Bob Wynne, and edits by Gary
Phillips. “I am extremely grateful to Jeff and the crew at Stark Raving for launching Abraham Snow’s adventures and introducing audiences to Snow Falls,” says Nash of the series’ origin. “Snow was created for that market originally. Without them, we might not be making this announcement today. Thank you for getting this Snow Ball rolling.”

After a near fatal encounter while deep undercover in South America, Abraham Snow retires from his work as a government operative, moving in with his grandfather during his recuperation.

Abraham, however, soon learns that working with his family can be just as treacherous as deep cover work - especially when caught in the crossfire between his father and grandfather. But when an assassination plot against a visiting dignitary puts the entire family at risk, Abraham must use all of his talents and contacts to keep them safe.

AUTHOR INTERVIEW-- BOBBY NASH DREAMS OF LAKESIDE LIVING!


Bobby Nash and Buddy Roberts at
Hoover Library's Sci-Fi/Lit Fest 2016.
I was interviewed by my friend, Buddy Roberts for Lakeside Living magazine when I was in Alabama back in October for the Hoover Library Sci-Fi/Fantasy Lit Fest. I first met Buddy at the Alabama Phoenix Fest a few years back and we bonded over a mutual love of comic books and writing. Buddy does good interviews. It's always fun to talk with him. You can check it out on page 6 of the December 2016 issue now available here.

Thanks, Buddy. That was fun.

TODAY'S OFFICE...


I stayed inside my messy office to write today. I really should do some cleaning in here. Maybe later. Right now I'm working toward the end if one novel and researching a Media Tie-in novel I'm about to start (more on that later). Fun times. 

The novel I'm finishing features the classic pulp character The Avenger. The novel is called "Black Water" (unless I have to change it) and will be published in 2017 by Moonstone Books.

Also on the board is the Lance Star: Sky Ranger novel, "Cold Snap" (again, unless it's changed, which sometimes happens). I will finish it after The Avenger.  Lance Star: Sky Ranger "Cold Snap" will also premiere in 2017 from Airship 27 Productions.

And then I jump ful speed ahead into the tie-in.

Have a great week.

Bobby

SUITING UP FOR CIVIL WAR!


Had a fun time talking Captain America: Civil War with Jay Sherer on The Reclamation Society podcast today. Look for it to go live in a week or so. Learn more about The Reclamation Society below or at their website here.

What is truth? That's the question we ask when we discuss films, television shows, and comic books. We dive deeper into the philosophies, theologies, and values held by the storytellers and conveyed through their characters. Every storyteller communicates his or her version of truth. And, since stories help us interpret and understand our universe, we want to dive deeper into the stories circulating within our culture. We even analyze our own stories!

SUPPORT CREATORS THIS BLACK FRIDAY WEEKEND!

Black Friday and Small Business Saturday are both excellent times to support independent creators. You see them all over social media; writers, artists, musicians, actors, crafters, filmmakers, and more. Take some of that money you're saving on the deals at the big box stores and support creativity this Black Friday. You'll not only get something cool and unique, but you'll support the arts, and make a creator's day a little brighter in the process. Isn't that what this season is all about?

Bobby

CANCELLED!

I found out last night that a writing project of mine has been cancelled due to low pre-sales. It's a bummer, but it happens. The publisher has a plan that can get these stories out, but in a different format than originally planned. Ah, such are the vagaries of working in the publishing business.

More details when I can mention them.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!


I decided to take advantage of the nice Thanksgiving weather to do some writing outside. I don't have any big plans other than lunch with my parents and brother so I'm working on one of the novels that a publisher is anxiously (or is that impatiently?) awaiting. I'm so far behind schedule on deadlines and still playing catch up. Lots to do. Lots to do. Moreover, I'm thankful to have understanding publishers. It means a lot.

I am also thankful to everyone who visits this page or follows my misadventures on social media. You guys help keep me going. I mean that seriously. Plus, thanks to my patrons over on Patreon for your help. A big thank you goes out to my readers and those who have bought books. I an so thankful that I can tell stories and it's a nice bonus that people actually buy and read them. I'm also thankful for my family. I don't share a lot of personal details, but 2016 has been rough on my family )2014 and 2015 weren't no prizes either, believe me), but we're still here and sill weathering the storm. I am definitely thankful for that.

Also, a big ol' thank you to the creators, writers, artists, publishers, and more I've been privileged to work with on this writing journey. There's still a long way to go and a lot of work ahead, but I'm excited to see what this adventure will bring and I hope you'll share that adventure with me.

Happy Thanksgiving!

SWITCHING GEARS! WHY I LIKE TO WORK ON MORE THAN ONE PROJECT AT A TIME!


Sometimes you just have to switch gears. 

I'm working on a novel now and nearing the end, but just wasn't feeling it today. It happens from time to time. In this instance, I have been working on this novel for some time now and today I just needed a break from the characters and story for a day, a chance to recharge the batteries. That said, I really couldn't afford to take the day off and not write so I was left wondering what to do? What to do?

So, I switched over to another open project, also a novel. This novel features Lance Star: Sky Ranger, and worked on it instead and am getting a good bit accomplished. Switching gears helped today, I think. This is one of the joys I find with having multiple projects going at one time. Sometimes you need to take a break from one story to work on something else. The real trick is making sure you get back to the one you took time off from and meet your deadline. I'll return to work on it tomorrow.

While working on Lance Star: Sky Ranger, I ran across this bit of dialogue I wrote earlier and really liked it--
“Sure, the man can be a pompous ass most of the time, but show me a pilot that doesn’t have an arrogant streak about him and I’ll show you a pilot that never gets air under his wings. No way is he working for the Nazis! I’ll believe he was scooped up by aliens before I believe that!”

Read a sample chapter from The Adventures of Lance Star Vol. 1 by Bobby Nash. This collection leads into the Lance Star novel, "Cold Snap" coming 2017. Get your copy here.

NASH NEWS - THE BOBBY NASH NEWSLETTER NOVEMBER 16, 2016

Reposting the Nash News email newsletter sent today.

Welcome to the not-quite-monthly Nash News email newsletter. As always, I appreciate you taking the time to read my ramblings and keep up with my antics on social media, and for visiting Nash News at www.bobbynash.com. I’ve been informed that not everyone can see the covers that are part of the email. You can see all the art at www.bobbynash.com

It's a smokey November afternoon in Georgia as I type this as smoke from the North Georgia and Tennessee brush fires continues to keep us under its haze. This makes it harder to grab the laptop and head outside to write.

I've given up on trying to get the newsletter on a monthly schedule as I try to catch up on some deadlines I’ve fallen behind on of late. This whole year has been playing catch up, but progress is being made, slowly but surely. 

Just click Read More... to see this month's Nash News.

NASH NEWS FOR NOVEMBER!


I just sent out the latest Nash News email newsletter. Didn't get one? That's easy enough to fix. Just send me your email address through social media or to bobby@bobbynash.com and I'll get you signed up. 

It's that easy.

THE ADVENTURES OF LANCE STAR - SKY RANGER LAUNCHES ON KINDLE!


Great news! Airship 27 Productions has collected my four Lance Star: Sky Ranger stories into one Kindle ebook volume called The Adventures of Lance Star - Sky Ranger on Amazon. In addition to collecting the stories, also look for a sneak peek at the Lance Star: Sky Ranger novel, "Cold Snap" coming in 2017.

You can find The Adventures of Lance Star - Sky Ranger here.

Bobby

OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE:

THE ADVENTURES OF LANCE STAR – SKY RANGER
By Bobby Nash

Way back in 2005, Airship 27 Productions launched a new series of pulp adventures featuring aviation hero, Lance Star.  One of the four writers recruited for that first volume was Bobby Nash, who quickly found himself completely enamored with the gutsy World War I veteran flyer.  Enough so that in the subsequent three volumes that would follow, Bobby made sure to provide a new story for each.

“It was clear to us,” admits Airship 27 Productions Managing Editor Ron Fortier, “that Bobby had a special love for this character.  Enough so that we transferred the copyrights to him.  Soon thereafter Bobby wrote and had published the first ever Lance Star comic book.”

When Nash approached Fortier a few years ago about publishing the first ever full length Lance Star novel, both parties were immediately on board with the idea.  That novel, tentatively titled – COLD SNAP, should be out sometime in 2017.  To promote its arrival, Airship 27 Productions has collected all four of Bobby Nash’s previously published Lance Star tales in this Kindle Only Edition.  Besides collecting those great pulp stories, this digital collection also includes the first chapter of Nash’s novel as a special bonus feature.

“We’re excited about Bobby’s plans for Lance Star,” concludes Fortier.  “We hope this collection will spur renewed interest in this great high flying hero.  Believe me, with a rising talent like Bobby Nash, the best is always yet to come.”

AIRSHIP 27 PRODUCTIONS – PULP FICTION FOR A NEW GENERATION!

Available only on Kindle.

WHEN THE NIGHT COMES...


Looks like the news is officially out there now. Or at least it was leaked early. You can read about it at First Comics News here.

I will be writing a Nightveil digest novel for Pro Se Productions. I am beyond thrilled at the opportunity to write Nightveil. I have loved this character since I first read her comic book adventures back in the '80s. Not a lot of details to share yet so stay tuned.

SHERLOCK HOLMES/DOMINO LADY TRADE REVIEWED AT EARTH STATION ONE!


Earth Station One's Ron Fortier gives us the lowdown on the Sherlock Holmes and Domino Lady trade collection from Moonstone Books. Read the full review here.

SHERLOCK HOLMES – DOMINO LADY
Edited by Joe Gentile
Moonstone Press
120 pages
Normally we don’t care for “hybrid” publications. By that we refer to books that have comics strips and prose stories mixed together between two covers; neither a full out graphic novel or a traditional prose anthology. And yet, as the old saying wisely dictates, for every rule there is always an exception. “Sherlock Holmes – Domino Lady” from Moonstone Press is that oh so rare, wonderful exception.

Edited by Joe Gentile, it reprints an earlier two-issue Domino Lady adventure by Nancy Holder and Bobby Nash, only now it is in full color, as are the other two short strips in this package. That in itself is a welcome upgrade to what was already a marvelous story. Next we have two short prose pieces, one by Nash and the other by Holder. Spaced between these is a solo Holmes strip Gentile and then the book wraps up with a solo Domino Lady strip by James Chambers and artist Scott P. “Doc” Vaughn. If you are unfamiliar with Vaughn, he does a great pulp sci-fi webstrip called “Warbirds of Mars” and is no slouch when it comes to drawing sexy 1940s style pin-up beauties. Thus his doing Domino Lady was an editorial stroke of genius.

Cap it all off with a gorgeous cover by the amazing Mike Fyles and you have a truly unique, fun and beautiful book any pulp fan would love to have in his or her collection. As for the book’s overall theme, the pairing of a 70 year old Holmes and the vivacious, alluring Ellen Patrick from Los Angeles…well, honestly, it works a whole lot better than one could possibly imagine. A tip of the pulp fedora to Moonstone Press. Here’s wishing for more such hybrids. You may make a believer out of us yet.
