TODAY'S OFFICE: RAINY DAY EDITION...

After accomplishing next to nothing writing wise yesterday, I'm back in my outdoor office to get some work done. It's overcast and we've had rain, but right now it is pleasant and not too hot. Didn't even need my fan today. #amwriting

I'm back at work on The Wraith: Sanderson of Metro novel. Nearing the end, which is cool. At the beginning, the end always seems so far away. It's always an interesting feeling when I can see the finish line ahead.

We Love Reader Reviews! Big Thanks to Amazon reader Maul5855 for the 4 STAR review of the I Am Googol: The Great Invasion Book 1 graphic novel that I wrote several years back. The review calls it "Trippy and Fun" and "A fascinating read". You can read the full review here.

TODAY'S WRITING OFFICE...


I got a late start today, but finally settled in for some writing. There are many words that need to be written today. The plan is to finish The Wraith: Sanderson of Metro novel this week and get it off to the editor. There were a lot of folks mowing in the neighborhood today so I opted to work inside to give my sinuses some relief. 

Happy Sunday, my friends.

LATE NIGHT WRITING TEASE...


I had a pretty good writing day today. I wrote a short comic script where I revisited old friends I've not written in years (more on that when I get the go ahead to announce it). I also added a pretty nice chunk of words to The Wraith: Sanderson of Metro novel, which is quickly heading into the final act. All in all, not a bad day. 

Time to call it a night and get some shut eye. Back to the writing table tomorrow.

'night.

TODAY'S OFFICE...

Love that view.
The writing and I are taking our show outside to enjoy this absolutely gorgeous weather today. I suspect one of the neighbors will start mowing any minute now.

There are a couple of projects on the schedule for today.

Work proceeds apace on The Wraith: Sanderson of Metro novel. Making good progress and should, hopefully, finish it this weekend and send it off to the publisher for edits.

I'm also working on a short comic book script that hasn't been officially announced yet. More news on that when I can share it.

Once Sanderson of Metro is completed, I will dive fully into SNOW DRIVE. I've already started on it and it's shaping up to be a fun mystery involving a race car team, sabotage, and there's a bounty been placed on Snow's head.

I hope the weather is good where you are too.

Have a great day.

PATREON EXCLUSIVE FREE EBOOK-- FANTASTIX: CODE RED!


ONLY AVAILABLE ON PATREON! Today, Patrons who pledge $5 or more received their monthly free ebook. This month's free book was the most rare Bobby Nash work in existence-- my 2nd published novel, FANTASTIX: CODE RED. Fantastix was published in 2006 and went out of print a few weeks later. This is the first time in 11 years anyone has been able to read this story in novel form and my Patreons received a FREE ebook copy. Want to get in on the free ebook a month club? Join us at www.patreon.com/BobbyNash. Unfortunately, this out of print novel is not available anywhere else.

FANTASTIX: CODE RED. This was my second published novel, following on the heels of EVIL WAYS, which came out in 2005. Fantastix: Code Red premiered in March of 2006.

By a purely coincidental happenstance, Bibliorati recently ran an old Pulp Fiction Reviews about Fantastix. This is only Nash's second book and it is wonderfully executed. He has matured considerably as a writer since that first offering and the control with which he spins this yarn is both deft and entertaining. I really enjoyed reading this book and came to love these characters. If superheroes are your cup of tea, do not pass up FANTASTIX. It has a lot to say. From Ron Fortier's Bibliorati review of the now out-of-print Fantastix novel, which can be read here.

A little Fantastix history.

The graphic novel cover.
I originally wrote this story as a comic book, which also eventually came out, though after the novel, Sadly, both are out of print and unavailable. I wrote the comic book story for Albino Alligator Studios, who owns the characters. While art was being worked on for the comics, the publisher asked if I would be willing to adapt it into novel form. Being young and hungry for work, I said yes and wrote this novel in 3 months. Yep, I wrote it in 90 days.

Using the comic book script as a guide, I wrote the novel telling the story of these super-powered characters on the run from a mysterious organization called Haven. I also expanded on the comic story. In the comic, the police detective appears in 1 panel, where it is mentioned he is on the case. In the novel, we see him actually working the case. The back story is also fleshed out

considerably.

Sadly, the publisher pulled the print on demand book after a few short weeks due to low sales and Fantastix faded into obscurity. I do not expect it will ever be re-released. I am proud of this novel and wish more readers had been given the chance to find it. It is my honor to present to my Patrons, for the first time in 11 years, this month's free Patreon ebook-- FANTASTIX: CODE RED! Want the chance to check this novel out? Join us at www.patreon.com/BobbyNash today! You will also gain access to the previous month's free ebooks as well. That's a great deal.

THE WONDERS OF RESEARCH...

Our protagonist, Paul Sanderson finds himself in a hot spot. Will he survive?
Research can take you to odd places in your writing. I've been researching sun stroke for my current novel in progress, The Wraith: Sanderson of Metro. I've run across some interesting reading materials on the symptoms and first aid options for dealing with sun stroke, or heat stroke as it is also called. This is scary stuff, especially for our protagonist, who is beaten then dumped in the desert and left for dead.

I learn a lot doing writing research.

WHEN INSPIRATION STRIKES... AT THE WRONG TIME!

Do not attempt to adjust your monitor. It's blurry on purpose.
Well, hello there sci fi novella series idea. So nice to make your acquaintance. Unfortunately, I cannot stop what I'm doing to work on you and your freshly formed stories because, y'know, deadlines and stuff. I'll just jot down your deets and get back to you later, okay? Cool. It's a date. A later date.

#InspirationStrikesAtTheMostInopportuneMoments #inspirationstrikes #deadlines #amwriting 
Or, as my buddy, Mike likes to say-- #ProlificProblems

I love it when inspiration strikes, but it always seems to happen at the most inopportune moments. I've added these notes to the to do file and have added this to my open projects board so I can get it scheduled. It's been a while since I did a sci fi story. This new idea has me excited. Hopefully, it will still be as exciting when I can get to it.
