TODAY'S OFFICE...

The view from my writing desk.
Today's office. A little off center so it's more like Gotham villain's lair. Trying to enjoy the nice weather and get some writing done. #amwriting

I love writing outside. It's peaceful and there are fewer interruptions.

BOBBY TAKES ON FRIED PICKLE NOIR!


Meet Q. Cumbersome
Check out my pin up drawing in the newly released 5th volume of J.R.Mounts' Fried Pickle Noir. My first time drawing ol' Q Cumbersome. I think it came out pretty well, you know, considering he's a freakin' fried pickles. 

Want one for your collection? Sure ya do. www.scairytalesnoir.com is the place to get it as well as other cool books by J.R. They're fun reads. You'll enjoy them. Now on sale.

A big thank you to J.R. for letting me play with his pickle.

uh, maybe I should rephrase that...

About FRIED PICKLE NOIR Book 5: RUSSET'S REVENGE!
Celebrate Scairy Tales Noir ANNIVERSARY with "Russet's Revenge"!
It was seven years ago I picked up a sketchbook for the express purpose to do something creative to make up for not having a career in music after many years trying. With that, Scairy Tales was created. Within a year after that, Fried Pickle Noir came and that was all she wrote as the story goes.

Each year, I try to make sure I have a new book out by October to keep the anniversary momentum alive. This year, I was fortunate enough to finish not only a book for Scairy Tales (vol 4 called "LOVE, Exciting & New") but
now, a fifth volume for Fried Pickle Noir with "Russet's Revenge". This one is my best pickle yet with more art and story than any other single pickle book, over 120 pages long! Click the STORE page to see all of my works and be sure to visit each series page for full samples of everything.

Cheers!
J.R.

I had a fun time at Heroes and Villains Fanfest Atlanta. This is primarily an autograph show featuring guests from TV shows like Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl, Flash, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Gotham, as well as wrestlers and other celebrities.

Also great catching up with Dmitri Walker, Drew Geraci, Wes Tillander, Marc Ballard, Christopher Collins, J.R.

TODAY'S OFFICE...

Not my usual view.
Our hero!
Today's office. Sitting at my dad's kitchen table, trying to get some writing done while he watches the race. Have to get him up once an hour to walk. He's making good progress recovering from his knee replacement surgery.

Writing is odd. I already wrote the last line of the chapter. Now, I'm writing to reach that point. It's funny how that happens. I was feeling stuck during this fight scene and wasn't sure how to end it. Then, it came to me so I wrote the last line and now I'm filling int he blanks from where I was to that ending.

I'm also having fun peppering this bar filled with magic users with characters from comics, books, and movies. Subtly, of course.

#WRITERPROBLEMS (I AM NOT A SERIAL KILLER EDITION)


This one made me laugh.

To be fair, I guess I could technically still be considered a serial killer. I mean, I still kill a lot, but only fictional victims in books or film. #writerproblems #amwriting

Two masters of the superhero pulp fiction world, Frank Dirscherl and Bobby Nash, have come together to tell this tale, the NEVER before told origin of the first Wraith/Paul Sanderson, as only they could.

AUTHOR'S ROUNDTABLE - SETTING THE STAGE!


This week, I once again join Sean Taylor's Author Roundtable discussion on his Bad Girls, Good Guys, and Two-Fisted Action blog. A great topic this week as e discuss setting, in particular choosing a city where we set our books. As usual, Sean gathered input from horror, action, comic book, romance, etc. writers for this one because each writer slices this topic a bit differently.

You can check it out at https://seanhtaylor.blogspot.com/2017/11/my-city-or-your-city-choosing-and.html

I'd love to hear your thoughts on setting so please leave a comment on Sean's blog or here.

[UPDATED]: SEE HOW THE WRAITH BEGINS! SANDERSON OF METRO NOW AVAILABLE!



Look what arrived today.
I am thrilled to share the news that my latest novel, a collaboration with author and friend, Frank Dirscherl called Sanderson of Metro is now available for purchase in both paperback and hardcover editions. Published by Trinity Comics. There are links below.

Sanderson of Metro tells the origin story of Frank's character, Paul Sanderson, the man who eventually becomes known as The Wraith: Dread Avenger of the Underworld. The Wraith has previously appeared in comic books, novels, and even a movie. Sanderson of Metro is the first step in a The Wraith relaunch. It was an honor to be invited to play with Frank's characters and to work with Frank again. The last time we were on a project together was Lance Star: Sky Ranger vol. 1 back in 2006. I hope I did Paul Sanderson and The Wraith justice.

THE WRAP UP-- HALLOWCON 2017!


I had a fun weekend at HallowCon in East Ridge, Tennessee this weekend. My voice is still less than ideal so apologies to those who saw me for not being as talkative as I normally like to be. Big thanks to Joe for inviting me. He and his crew took great care of us and kept us fed. 

The Starship Farragut screening on Saturday was well attended and several DVDs found their way to good homes. The No SH#!  This just happened! panel was a wild time. None of had any idea what the topic was truly about so we winged it. There were a lot of laughs.

Starship Farragut screening
It was also great hanging with the other guests and attendees, including Jeremy Hicks, Kindra Sowder, D.A. Adams, Santiago Cirillo, Stephanie Osborn, KT Hunter, Tamara Lowry, and J.L. Mulvihill, who also celebrated her 28th wedding anniversary that same weekend and the con and her husband had a nice surprise for her. I'm sure there are others I am forgetting. No slight intended. My sickly brain, still recovering from allergies, simply doesn't remember.

I hope you all had a wonderful con.

FIGHTCARD: BAREFOOT BONES KO'D BY 5 STAR REVIEW!


A BIG THANK YOU to author Darrell Grizzle for his kind words and amazing 5 STAR Amazon review of my Fightcard: Barefoot Bones novella. It is greatly appreciated, sir. This title is still available in paperback and ebook.

"Barefoot Bones is a wartime boxing story, set during the Korean War, about a scrappy young soldier and boxer who picked up the nickname Barefoot Bones while growing up poor in the North Georgia mountains. This is a fast-paced action story that is also a coming-of-age story as we learn about Bones’ past. In the tradition of the pulp paperbacks of the 1950’s, Barefoot Bones is a highly entertaining novella by a master of modern pulp fiction, Bobby Nash (writing as Jack Tunney)."

Click for a larger view. Wraparound paperback cover.
Thanks again, Darrell. I'm glad you enjoyed it. I had great fun working with Paul and Mel at Fightcard Books. They put out a fine collection of fight fiction. I had intended to write a second Fightcard novella, but time and deadlines got the better of me, as they so often do. Eventually, the Fightcard line ended, but there are well over 20 novellas out there for your enjoyment by some amazingly talented writers working under the Jack Tunney house name. You should check them out.

You can also read this old blog post where I share my thoughts on crafting Fight Card: Barefoot Bones and see what it was like strapping on Jack Tunney’s gloves. You can find that here.

By the way, "a master of modern pulp fiction, Bobby Nash" is totally going on my resume. HA! HA!

A NEW PROJECT BEGINS...

Ste One: plot/character notes.
My friend Bernadette Johnson (Lance Star: Sky Ranger, Sherlock Holmes: Consulting Detective, How Stuff works) and I are writing a book together and we had our first plot/character discussion yesterday. Made some good progress and I'm looking forward to working with her to bring this project to life. It'll be fun. Sorry for the pixelated, blurry photo, but we aren't ready to share details just yet.

This one probably won't see daylight until late 2018 or, if our original plan works the way we hope, probably 2019.

Stay tuned for more details as we can share them.

PLAYING CATCH UP!


I had a really productive day yesterday. I spent most of Thursday catching up on past due obligations, including art for my extremely patient patrons who won the Patreon free monthly giveaway like this Thing piece for John Kilgallon, Rick Ruby for Robert McIntyre, Beaker piece for John Nacinovich, who had me draw it for his wife, Patricia. Of course, you can't have Beaker without his partner in science, Dr. Bunson Honeydew. 

I also drew my arch nemesis, the mighty Q Cumbersome for my pal J.R. Mounts' next Fried Pickle Noir book. Will scan and add text in the morning. I figured it was past time I drew that darn pickled p.i.

Thanks again for your patience and I apologize again for the delays.

Okay, back to work.
