IT'S THE LITTLE THINGS...

I saw this posted on a writing thread I was part of today. An author had posted a touching scene about a guy kissing his wife's pregnant belly.

"Y'know if this were a Bobby Nash story you'd be fighting crime now."

Thanks, Don Smith. I needed that laugh today. So glad I wasn't drinking when I read it or I would have done a spit take on the laptop.

SOMETIMES I GET ASKED STUFF... #44!


And we're back for the 44th installment of Sometimes I Get Asked Stuff… 

You can check out all of the past installments of Sometimes I Get Asked Stuff... here.


Q: What do you WANT from your writing career?

Why, fame and fortune, of course. Isn't that why we all do this? Okay, seriously, I want to make a decent living as a writer. I'm a long way from that being a reality, but it is a goal I strive toward. I also want my work to reach as wide an audience as possible. I am working on growing my audience daily. It's a process, but I am making it work. On the selfish side, I would like to be known as a New York Times Best Selling Author one day too. I think that would be great and it's one of the goals I aspire to achieve.

Q: CREATORS: inspire the next generation by telling them how you broke into the industry.

One Friday night, after a stressful week at the day job, I emailed every publisher with a website. I had done some stuff on my own and with locals, but I introduced myself to all publishers. I received one reply,which thanked me, but mentioned they were closing shop and wished me well. A year later, that same person was at another publisher and asked to see samples of my writing then asked me to do a try out issue. They liked what I did and I was on the book. When that project ended, I had to break in again and again. Eventually, I got more work. I keep looking for more writing work and sometimes that feels like breaking in again, even after all this time. Keeps me hopping.

EARTH STATION DCU CELEBRATES 25 YEARS OF BATMAN THE ANIMATED SERIES!


This week, I joined the Earth Station DCU crew of Drew Leiter, Cletus Jacobs, and ESO's Howdy Mike Gordon to discuss the 25th anniversary of one of my favorite TV series, Batman: The Animated Series. You won't want to miss this fun trip down memory lane, which is much safer than taking a trip down Gotham's Crime Alley, on the latest episode of Earth Station DCU. Give it a listen at the ESO
Broadcasting site, Libsyn, or iTunes.

About ESDCU episode 63: This Week on Earth Station DCU! Drew Leiter and Cletus Jacobs are joined by Mike Gordon and Bobby Nash to celebrate 25 years of Batman: The Animated Series! In Batman #30, The Dark Knight has finally picked a side! Has he picked the Joker or the Riddler? In Superman #30, It is Sinestro vs. Paralax! (Wait is this the right title?) All this plus, DC News, Cletus’s pick of the week, and much, much more!

R.I.P. MARGARET NASH


We laid my mother to rest today. It was a nice service and we were surrounded the past few days with family and friends. The deepest thanks from myself and my family to all those who reached out, shared condolences, called, visited, and offered prayers and well-wishes. I wish I could thank each and every one of you personally, one on one, but know that it was very much heard and appreciated. I often feel like I'm alone in the world sometimes. This past week has served to remind me that such is not the case. Your love and friendship means the world to me. Thank you.

I'VE HAD TO CANCEL MY DRAGON CON APPEARANCE...


Sadly, I will be unable to attend this year's Dragon Con festivities.

I have been looking forward to Dragon Con in Atlanta, Georgia this Labor Day weekend. Dragon Con is one of my absolute favorite times of the year and I have been the past 27 years. This would be my 28th Dragon Con. This convention, and the people who attend, mean a great deal to me. I have met and gotten to know so many awesome people through this convention that are very special to me. This is my geek family and I will miss seeing each and every one of them. I am listed as being set up at Table 1G in the Comics and Pop Art Track located in the America's Mart #2 building, 3rd floor, but that table will be occupied by another creator this weekend in my place.

I have not publicly talked about this out of respect for her wishes, but my mother has been battling cancer for the past 3 years. The battle has not gone well and sadly, we are nearing the final round. As you can imagine, this has taken something of a toll on me and my family. We are emotionally bruised and battered and physically exhausted, but we are holding together for one another. We originally believed that I could still take the 5 days that I would be gone for Dragon Con without worry, but recent events have made it clear I cannot so I have to cancel my appearance at Dragon Con and stay with the family to help take care of my mother and father, who is also not doing well with the knee that is going to be replaced soon.

For those who know my parents, we ask that you not inundate them with phone calls. Please, respect their request for privacy and just leave them be. Thanks.

I may stop by the con one day, if I can get away for a few hours so I can say hello to friends and soak up a little bit of that Dragon Con creative energy that I could use in large doses right now. We'll see how it goes.

A big thanks to Thom, Regina, Ben, the track directors, and the staff of Dragon Con, who I spoke with earlier today. I hope you all have a tremendous weekend and a stellar good time. To my friends, I'm sorry I'll miss you. Have a great time and share a lot of photos so I can be there vicariously through social media. To my fans (that's still strange to type) and those looking to see me or pick up some books, I'm sorry I will miss you as well. Hopefully, we'll meet up at another con soon.

Thanks for understanding.

THE WRAP UP-- DCPL AUTHOR EVENT 2017!


I was honored to be a guest for the first in what I hope will become an annual event, the 2017 DCPL Author Expo. The Expo was held on Saturday, August 19th in Tucker, Georgia at the Tucker-Reid H. Cofer Library. It was my first time visiting this particular library and I had a great time. I will definitely have to return for a visit.

The Author Expo featured a rather large selection of local talent with books ranging from spiritual to children's literature, fantasy to sci fi, mystery to religious, self help to crime fiction.

There were no panels, but each author was given a two minute window to introduce themselves and their work. I got a nice life when I opened my time with "Hi. My name is Bobby Nash and I kill people for a living... in books." I also had a moment to take a couple of questions from the audience before my time was up.

All in all, I had a fun time, sold a few books (Hollis P.I. was the biggest mover at this event), met some incredibly talented men and women, and showed off my books and passed out business cards with purchase links for those who might like to pick up a book later. I even set up a couple of author interviews and book reviews out of it. A great way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

A big thank you to Teresa Totten and the staff at the Tucker-Reid H. Cofer Library, and the DeKalb County Public Library system for having me and for putting on such a fun event.

Let's do it again next year.

SOMETIMES I GET ASKED STUFF... #43!


And we're back for the 43rd installment of Sometimes I Get Asked Stuff… I am honored to get questions sent to me as well as share answers to questions from writers groups. Please, keep 'em coming.

You can check out all of the past installments of Sometimes I Get Asked Stuff... here.


Q: What is your style of writing? fiction, non-fiction , or something else!!!

I write fiction across multiple genres.



Q: tell me about one of your biggest professional disappointments to-date, but also what, if anything, positive that you got get from it.

I've had my share of "this close" stories. I was "this close" to
working on... The last year or so has seen a good deal of disappointments in regard to projects being cancelled or publishers vanishing/going under/not paying/etc. Even though the Edgar Rice Burroughs' At The Earth's Core graphic novel continues to sell well, the Pellucidar graphic novel adaptations were cancelled while we were working on book 2, Ghost Gal went on indefinite hiatus and off sale when our publisher passed away, Pro Se cancelled their Signature Series line, which I am part of with two titles: Freelancer (originally a recurring series of one shots) and Crimson Moon (which was originally intended to be a trilogy), Domino Lady: Threesome was cancelled, the Snow books were stalled at the publisher, anthologies sitting ready, but unpublished for years, a decade in some cases, etc, etc, etc. Each one of those stung, but I know it's part of the business.

The positive takeaway has me focusing on more novel work and original projects. After a struggle, I regained the rights to Snow and am releasing those 
myself through BEN Books. So far that has been a positive, although they could be selling better. The cancellations did open up my schedule, though not in a way I wanted it to happen. Will Ghost Gal come back for a second novel? Hard to say. I hope so. I love the characters.The characters from the Pro Se line are mine so I may try them on my own down the road. The Pellucidar license has gone to another publisher so that project is dead. I am honored to have been part of ERB's legacy, even if for a short time and working with Jamie Chase was a dream collaboration. Domino Lady: Threesome is being repackaged as a trade by Moonstone instead of releasing the issues individually so that is a positive. At least they will be released.

And I keep writing.

BOBBY AND THE NEEDLESS THINGS PODCAST CREW PROVIDE DRAGONSLAYER COMMENTARY!


I went on another good journey with the Needless Things podcast crew (Phantom Troublemaker, Arian Gulick, and Rad Ranger) as we gather in the Phantom Zone to bear witness to the might of Vermithrax Pejorative as we provide commentary for Dragonslayer!

Note: this is the first time I saw the film.

Listen to Needless Things Podcast episode 174 – Dragon Con 2017: Dragonslayer Needless Commentary HERE.

Part of an ongoing series – the Needless Things Irregulars gather in the Phantom Zone to provide their own unique commentary on classic genre films! Special guest Award-Winning Bobby Nash joins the Commentary Team for the first-ever Dragon Con-themed Commentary – 1981's Dragonslayer!

Everyone knows that dragons are badass, but for some reason Hollywood has rarely done a good job of capitalizing on their badass-ness. One of the seminal early 80s HBO standards was Matthew Robbins' Dragonslayer, a film set to cash in on the fantasy craze of the day, with a little Mark Hamill-ness thrown in by way of

a young Peter MacNicol.

Featuring gorgeous locations and tremendous production design, the film failed to become the blockbuster that had been hoped for and even today hasn't managed to achieve even a cult status. In a tribute to the awesomeness of Dragon Con and of dragons, the Irregulars delve into Dragonslayer and offer up their thoughts as to what, if anything, went wrong.

Listen in as Phantom Troublemaker, Bobby Nash, Arian, and Rad Ranger gather in the Phantom Zone to bear witness to the might of Vermithrax Pejorative, the best-named thing ever!
