Now you know.

IT WAS THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS...


28 years ago. WOW. That was the longest summer between seasons and still one of my favorite cliffhangers ever. "Mr. Worf... fire." Still gives me chills. As a writer, I learned a lot from this episode. Michael Piller poured a lot of story into part 1's 45 minute run time.

Bobby

Repost trekmovie: #OTD 1990: #StarTrek #TNG Season 3 ends with one of the best cliffhangers in TV history, "The Best of Both Worlds" Part I. #ResistanceIsFutile #LongestSummerEver

The one big problem I have with the second episode of this two-parter. It's this exchange:

RIKER: Lieutenant Worf, everyone in this room shares my respect for your service to this ship. But right now, I need your experience at tactical. Commander Data, I realise your very nature omits ambition. Nevertheless, I want you to know I seriously considered you first officer. 

DATA: Thank you, sir. 


RIKER: But this is not the time for change. I need you all where you are, where Captain Picard always relied on you. I have been, reluctantly, forced to conclude that Commander Shelby, our expert on the Borg, is an ideal choice at this time for first officer.


Not the time for change? I can't imagine a better time to move people into new jobs. Picard already knows what they can do where they are now. Moving them around circumvents a big piece of Locutus' knowledge of the enemy.

That part always bugged me a bit.

Otherwise, this is an outstanding two-parter. If you haven't seen it, it's great. It also makes for a good double feature when paired with the Star Trek First Contact movie.

BOBBY NASH RETURNS TO THE FINAL FRONTIER...

Last year, I wrote a short screenplay for Randy Landers' Hospital Ship Marie Curie Star Trek fan series. They run 8 - 10 minute episodes within the new guidelines put out by Paramount and CBS. After touring the sets last year (they are amazing, by the way), I came up with an idea so I wrote an episode called "Under Fire" for them. Today, they filmed the episode, which is pretty darn cool. Sadly, I was unable to be there for the filming, but I look forward to seeing shots when they are available. Follow their progress HERE.

FERGUSON INK PRESENTS: 60 NEW PULP BOOKS TO GET YOU STARTED!

Derrick Ferguson, himself no stranger to appearing on lists such as this, has updated his list of 25 New Pulp Books To Get You Started for 2018 and it has now grown to a whopping 60 New Pulp Books To Get You Started. You can read it HERE!

There are a lot of great reads on here. If you're looking for a pulpy good read, this list is a good place to start. I'm honored to have two titles appear on the list. The Ruby Files Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 (co-created by Sean Taylor and me) and Snow Falls both made the list, which is awesome. 

Thanks, Derrick.

DON'T CRY OVER SPILLED TEA... UNLESS YOU SPILL IT ON YOUR LAPTOP!

Spilled tea on my laptop last night. Ugh. However, thanks to some minor miracle, I was able to get the laptop dried out. The internal modem couldn't connect to wi-fi all day until just minutes ago so that's something. It's slow, but at least it's connected. I can still open writing docs and the flash drive is readable on all but one USB port. So, as things go, it could be worse. Keys are a bit sticky so I will have to clean them too.

I need to remind myself to keep drinks further from the laptop than I had them before although, hopefully, the domino effect that caused this comedy of errors is not likely to happen again.

Then again, the way my luck has been running, who knows.

Oh, well, enough feeling sorry for myself. There are words to be written so I'm off to write.

A 5 STAR SALUTE FOR THE JOY OF JOE!

A Big Thank You to Shishard for leaving a 5 STAR Amazon review for THE JOY OF JOE. It is much appreciated.

"Great read. There are only so many how to collect or books on collecting action figures a man can read. This fortunately is not one of those. Compiling essays on why someone loves a toy line was definitely what our hobby needed. We all have similar stories and most in this book will trigger the 'back in the day' thoughts of lessons learned and friends remembered. I will definitely look for other books by Jim Beard."

Happy Reading!

TONIGHT'S WRITING SHAKE UP...


I did something with the writing I don't normally do tonight.

I wrote out of order. 

I wasn't feeling the chapter I was on so I wrote a scene from later in the story that I was more in the mood to write. It's an odd sensation. I don't jump around like this inside a manuscript often, but tonight it worked out great.

Bobby

ABOUT SNOWED TRAPPED:


After the shocking reveal at the end of SNOW DRIVE, the investigation into Miguel Ortega and Daniella Cordoza heats up, Abraham Snow calls in a favor from his former handler, Elizabeth Walker. She has agreed to share information on Ortega and Cordoza and to deal with the hired guns after the bounty placed on Snow’s head.

A team of hired mercenaries break into an information storage and retrieval site hidden in an average office building in downtown Atlanta. They enter the building through the lobby restaurant. They say timing is everything. Unfortunately, for the mercenary team, they picked the same building where Walker and Snow are meeting and they don’t take kindly to having their reunion interrupted.

It’s time to saddle up and yippeekiya because we are SNOW TRAPPED in the next action-packed entry to the Snow series by Award-Winning Author Bobby Nash. On sale June 2018! Published by BEN Books.


Learn more about SNOW TRAPPED here.


I also whipped up a new ad for the SNOW series. I ran across this photo on-line and thought it was cute and fits the theme. I can't use it for real as I don't have the rights to use the woman's likeness in a pay ad, but I had fun sharing it to social media.


When you've got SNOW chance... you take it!
Abraham Snow's adventures continue in July with SNOW TRAPPED!
SNOW FALLS, SNOW STORM, and SNOW DRIVE still available in paperback and ebook.
The collected SNOW Series 1, Vol. 1 coming soon.

THE JOY OF JOE NABS 5 STARS!


We Love Reader Reviews! A big THANK YOU to erick gee for his 5 STAR Amazon review of The Joy of Joe: Memories of America's Movable Fighting Man from Today's Grown-Up Kids.

"A fun collection of G.I.Joe nostalgia! As a G.I.Joe fan for the last 36 years, when I first learned of "The Joy of Joe", I knew it was a book that I definitely needed for my collection. What I didn't know was that the book would actually bring a tear to my eye (but for masculinity's sake, we'll just say someone was cutting onions nearby). The Joy of Joe is a collection of stories from G.I.Joe fans and in today's day where everything appears so negative, it's great to be able to pick up a book that immediately reintroduces you to your imagination and reminds you of a simpler time. I highly recommend this title not only to G.I.Joe fans, but for anyone looking for a fun trip down memory lane."

Thanks again, Erick.

You can pick up your very own copy of The Joy of Joe: Memories of America's Movable Fighting Man from Today's Grown-Up Kids at www.amazon.com/dp/172030727X.

Now you know.

Well, you know the rest.
