BIRTHDAY BLUES AND REDS...


I had a nice lunch out at Your Pie with my dad and brother. We stopped off for a DQ dessert after. Not a bad birthday even though it's my first without mom here to join us, which bummed me out more than a little bit this morning.

I capped the lunch off by buying myself a present. I picked up Avengers: Infinity War on Blu Ray and plan to enjoy it tonight after I get some writing done.

WELL, THIS JUST MADE MY DAY!

Not actual cover.
Now this made my day.

Bill Black, publisher of AC Comics posted this on Facebook today and it blew my mind. As you may know, I wrote a novel featuring the AC Comics character, Nightveil for Pro Se Productions, who has licensed them. That book should be out in November, I believe. Any time I write a licensed character, there is a bit of nervousness that sets in. These are the people who know, and in some cases, created the character(s) so they know them well. I don't want to be the guy who writes them poorly so that nervousness I mentioned sets in. Then, I saw this...

Bill Black wrote: "Just read the BOBBY NASH novel NIGHTVEIL: CRISIS AT THE CROSSROADS OF INFINITY soon to be published from Pro Se. SUPERB! Whatta movie this would make! FEMFORCE fans will love it. It is ALL Nightveil with a lot of LAURA WRIGHT thrown in. This pic has nothing to do with it but it sorta fits. Can't describe the story line. That would be telling! Read it! You'll love it!"

Whew! I'm thrilled that he liked it. That's a load off my shoulders.

Now, I just have to deal with the nervousness of if the fans/readers like it.

Nightveil is a character that I have been itching to write ever since I read her first adventure back in the  mid-80's when I was reading Americomics in high school. It's taken almost 30 years, but I finally got the chance. Proof positive that dreams do come true. Now, I keep waiting on that Fantastic Four, Captain America, and Thor writing dream to come true. Any day now, I'm sure. Ha! Ha!

NIGHTVEIL: "CRISIS AT THE CROSSROADS OF INFINITY"
A digest novel by Bobby Nash
COMING NOVEMBER 2018 from Pro Se Productions
Keep watching www.bobbynash.com for more on the novel's release.

TODAY'S OFFICE...


In the office today. I've already put down some words (hopefully, in the right order to make my editor happy) ready to drop some more after a short break. That hard chair is rough on the butt and back. #amwriting #writerproblems

FROM THE "IT'S FUNNY BECAUSE IT'S TRUE..." FILES!


Ran across this on social media tonight.

Just to put things in perspective. People are always trying to talk down my book prices. With a novel, the writer makes the least amount of money of the book's price, usually around $1 to maybe $2, if you're lucky.

GAH!!! LONGHAND!?!?!

This was me yesterday...

When there's nothing happening on set, I write. When I stupidly forget to bring my laptop, I write the old fashioned way. I haven't written a story long hand in years. It's an interesting feeling, but at least I can get a jump on this short story deadline.

CROSSOVER POTENTIAL?


Sommersville, Georgia was always such a nice, quiet place. Then author Bobby Nash made very bad things happen there. It’s not too late to catch up on the Sommersville Saga before the next chapter arrives.

It all starts with Evil Ways, a Harold Palmer Thriller continues in Deadly Games!, a John Bartlett/Benjamin West Thriller both written by award-winning author Bobby Nash.

Harold Palmer will return in Evil Intent.

John Bartlett and Benjamin West will return in Deadly Deals!
Plus, look for stand-alone stories with Sommersville Sheriff Tom Myers coming soon.

And did I mention that Abraham Snow also calls Sommersville home?

Do I smell a crossover brewing?

Welcome to scenic Sommersville.
We hope you survive the experience.

AT THE EARTH'S CORE GETS A 5 STAR REVIEW AT GOODREADS... SALE AT IN STOCK TRADES...

WE LOVE READER REVIEWS!

A big thank you to Vishualee for the kind words and 5 STAR GoodReads review of Dark Horse ComicsEdgar Rice Burroughs' At The Earth's Core graphic novel adaptation written by Bobby Nash and illustrated by Jamie Chase. It is appreciated.

"A Big Thank You to Vishualee for the kind words and 5 STAR GoodReads review of Edgar Rice Burrough's At The Earth's Core. A heart-pounding adventure! There are so many things awaiting us in the world of Pellucidar. What fascinated me was Pellucidar itself, unbenownst to us, there is a thriving environment below our earth. I have previously read about the hollow earth theory, watched movies like the Lost World and Dinotopia, then read Journey to the centre of the Earth. But none of them were as exciting as reading this book. There are some parts that amused me, such as Dian the beautiful introduces herself in English. The other humans speak in English. We are made to believe that the hero, David learns their language. Secondly, we see David sobbing as he says to himself that we are only food to the reptilian creatures. A thought crossed my mind about how we, in real life, treat other animals as food. It's just the tables had turned in Pellucidar."

Thanks again for the kind words.

DEAL ALERT!

TROUBLEMAKER TRAILER


We've had some adventures.
I am so proud of my friend, Dave West, the Phantom Troublemaker, who finds himself the subject of a pretty cool looking documentary on his life. Check out the "Troublemaker" trailer at https://youtu.be/JD8bLMxX4WA

"Troublemaker" is the story of Atlanta-based pop culture personality, Phantom Troublemaker. A year was spent following this podcast host, DragonCon panel moderator, toy expert, movie fan, writer, wrestling announcer, family man, and all around good guy on his adventures of dorkery. This documentary is director Jason C. Wilson's follow-up to "Stopper: The Rise and Fall of the Bastard Squad".

Way to go, Dave!
