"I finished reading Deadly Games! this last weekend. After I got about a quarter through, I had trouble putting it down!"
Thanks to Dave for reading and taking the time to write. Much appreciated, sir.
Now I really need to get to work on book two, "Deadlier Games!" Just kidding. I wouldn't call it that. :)
|Suspects, victims, and evidence. Can you solve the mystery before they do?|
|Murder Boards were assembled in my parent's garage.|
|Murder Boards premiered at Alabama Phoenix Festival 2012|
|Bobby as Warden Chalmers|
I guess I really should get back to work now. That Evil Ways sequel won't write itself.

Working on Evil Intent outside and enjoying the gorgeous weather we're having today.
Here's a taste of today's work:
The newspaper reporter was cautious, but given his profession that was an admirable trait. If he thought that Donnie was anyone other than who he claimed, he hid it well.
Harold answered on the third ring. “Not a great time, Ray,” he heard his brother say on the other end. “Can I call you back?”
“Actually, I think this might be important,” Franklin said.
“Is something wrong?” Harold asked.
“Yeah,” Franklin said. “I’m flying solo here today. Myers and Dooley aren’t here and I really could use them.”
“What’s going on, Ray?” Harold asked, sounding more nervous than he’d heard him in some time. “Who’s there with you?”
“I’ve got an Agent Rogers from the ATF here in my office. He said he needed to get in touch with you.”
“Rogers? Brian Rogers?”
“Yeah. That’s him,” Franklin said.
“Is he listening in?”
“No. He’s in my office.”
“Okay. Stay calm. That’s not Brian Rogers."
Okay, back to work.
A little more Evil Intent from today's writing session:
“My God,” Harold said.
“Yeah. It’s bad,” Carter said. He watched as the medical examiner’s techs loaded the body of a young woman into a body bag. “Biggs was first on the scene. He’s taking it hard.”
“I bet. Who’s the girl?” Harold asked.
“No idea. You know, Brian. He rarely had a shortage of trim lying around. She was lying facedown on the bed. The ME puts T.O.D. for both at around five or six this morning.”
“But the 911 text…” He didn’t have to finish his thought. They both knew what it meant. The medical examiner’s time of death didn’t line up exactly with the emergency signal they had received. Whoever had killed the ATF agent had sent the text message after Brian and his lady friend were dead.
“The usual,” Carter said and blew out a breath. “Could be anyone at this point. I just don’t know.”
Okay, just a little more writing before getting ready to record tonight's Earth Station Who "The Power of Three" episode. It's been a fun-filled day of action, intrigue and adventure.

I’ve been doing some non-writing, yet writing related work today. Might be time to switch over and write some fiction though. Plus, we record this week's Earth Station One podcast tonight. We're talking Babylon 5, which is one of my favorites. You’ll be able to hear that later this week.
As I did with Deadly Games! last week, I created some pre-promotion banner ads for the upcoming re-release of my first published novel, Evil Ways. Click for a larger view.
|Proposed re-release cover|
A small-town sheriff in way over his head.
An FBI agent on the mend, seeking nothing more than to reconnect with his brother.
A reporter on the trail of a killer, something he thought he’d left behind when he left
Atlanta, Georgia for the small town of Sommersville, Georgia.
A town preparing for an annual celebration.
Old friends coming together to celebrate their high school reunion.
FBI Agent Harold Palmer needed a relaxing vacation. All he wanted was to travel to Sommersville, Georgia to visit his brother, newspaper publisher and reporter, Franklin Palmer. He should have known better.
The discovery of a brutally murdered young lady with a connection to the local police, coupled with a rowdy high school reunion and the annual Autumn Festival has Sommersville Sheriff Tom Myers and his deputies overwhelmed.
FBI Agent Harold Palmer, in town on a family matter, finds himself on the trail of a killer who preys on the fears of his victims. His next targets are the unsuspecting members of the reunited class of ’95.
They should fear his EVIL WAYS.
|I like the sound of this.|
While you’re out surfing the ‘net, I posted several items over the past weeks at www.esopodcast.com and http://allpulp.blogspot.com. You should swing by and take a peek. There’s been some cool news posted recently.
Well, I’d best get back to work.
We’ll talk later.

|Is this your muse?|
made a virtue by some, a vice by others, and by others merely ignored as an urban legend for creators.
To find out how today's hard-working writers feel about the muse and finding inspiration, particularly in today's busy lifestyles where one is most likely a "writer and" -- not merely having the luxury of just being a writer -- we asked.
And some very cool writers answered at http://seanhtaylor.blogspot.com/2012/09/killing-or-kissing-muse-writers-on.html

I’ll post more details here as they become available.
Here are some new Deadly Games! banner ads I've been playing around with today. What do you think? Which ones work best? Click on each banner to see a larger version.
Of course, I would be remiss if I didn't mention that you can purchase DEADLY GAMES! in paperback and/or ebook at the following booksellers or wherever you buy your favorite books.
BEN Books (paperback)
Barnes & Noble (paperback)
Amazon (Kindle ebook)
Barnes & Noble (Nook ebook)

BEN Books is proud to present Deadly Games! a thriller by Bobby Nash.
They played the most dangerous game of all and death was only the beginning...
Six years ago, Police Detective John Bartlett and journalist Benjamin West were instrumental in the capture of notorious master criminal Darrin Morehouse. Their story played out in the media, rocketing both Bartlett and West into local celebrity status.
Today, Morehouse, still a master game player and manipulator, commits suicide while in prison. His death initiates one final game of survival for the people Morehouse felt wronged him the most. At that top of the list are Bartlett and West, who must set aside their differences to save the lives of Morehouse's other victims and solve one last game before a dead man’s hired killers catch them and his other enemies.
Deadly Games! is a fast-paced action/thriller featuring action, suspense, murder, and the occasional gunfire from Author Bobby Nash, the writer of Evil Ways, Domino Lady, Lance Star: Sky Ranger, and more.
John Bartlett and Benjamin West return in an all-new thriller in 2013.
