AND TODAY WE WRITE... BUT FIRST...

The downside to making a broad proclamations like the one I made a few days ago (see this posting) about getting my career back on track starting today is that sometimes the universe hears you and replies, "Challenge accepted!" 

I'm sick as a dog today, got no sleep last night, been trying to fix my family's computer issues all day, ran some errands, and assorted other odds 'n ends. The one thing I didn't do, you ask? If you said "write", you'd be right.

I will start my bold new direction tomorrow... provided I can get some sleep tonight, which is not looking good so far.

I'm reminded of the old joke. "Do you know how to make God laugh? Make plans."

sigh...

MIDNIGHT MUSINGS... [OR I HAD AN EPIPHANY!]

Making plans and taking names. That's my game.

The past couple of years have really kicked my ass big time. It's high time I started doing some kicking of my own and get my writing career moving forward again. I've been running in place far too long.

Time to start moving forward again.

BOLDLY GOING TO THE BIG SCREEN FOR THE FIRST TIME...

On December 7, 1979, Star Trek The Motion Picture premiered, taking Star Trek from television reruns to big screen success. Although this is my least favorite of the original cast movies (yes, even less than Final Frontier), it paved the way for decades of Star Trek to come. 

Happy Anniversary, Star Trek.

NEVER FORGET...

December 7, 1941. 

"A day which will live in infamy." 

Today, we remember those who lost their lives and continue to dream of a future free of war and terror.

Sadly, we still have a long way to go.

MAMA TRIED TO GET 5 STARS! SHE SUCCEEDED!


Big outlaw thanks to Paul R. McNamee for leaving a great 5 STAR review for the MAMA TRIED crime anthology published by Down and Out Books. Much appreciated. Read the full review at HERE.

MAMA TRIED is a strong and inspired crime fiction anthology with variety
Joe Lansdale prefaced one of his most famous horror stories with a note that is was "a story that does not flinch."

Although Lansdale is not in this anthology, I think that concept and spirit permeate this anthology. These stories do not flinch. They dig into criminal worlds, telling taut stories that kept me engaged throughout.

As you can see from the cover, each story here is inspired by a classic "outlaw country" song - whether by title alone or riffing on the lyrics as well. The tales run the gamut from law enforcement point-of-view to criminal p.o.v. Criminals within criminals, good cops who might use questionable methods, meth biker gangs, alpaca farms, dog fights, booze running, war veterans, jobs and drug deals gone wrong, lovers who are no good for one another - they're all here. One of the anthology's strongest points is its variety.

These nineteen tales of inspired outlawry are well worth the read, especially if you enjoy crime fiction and/or outlaw country.

I had a great time working on this one.

THE DUMBEST WRITING ADVICE I'VE HEARD IN A LONG TIME!

Put THAT in your pipe and smoke it!
I'm always amazed how often I am told what things I HAVE TO DO to be a writer. The only thing required to be a writer is to WRITE. Right? :)

On a writing group today, it was stated that EVERY writer had to smoke weed to be successful. Really? Every writer? So, I guess if I want to be successful, I now have to smoke weed, drink excessive amounts of coffee, stay drunk all the time, smoke cigarettes (when I'm not smoking weed, apparently), not sleep, live in solitude, and have a shitty relationship with pretty much everyone. These are all bits of advice over the years I've been told that EVERY writer must do.

This sort of thing makes my head hurt.

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...

Bobby


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.

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.

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.
