TALES OF THE INTERSTELLAR BARTENDERS GUILD SERVES UP A NEW 5 STAR REVIEW!


Big thanks to George Tackes for leaving a 5 STAR Amazon review of the Tales of the Interstellar Bartenders Guild anthology published by Pro Se Productions. Read the full review HERE.
 It is much appreciated.

"Great summer reading! Who doesn't love a good bartending tale? Because no good story starts with "someone was eating a salad." Twelve stories you can enjoy on the beach, by the pool, under a sun umbrella, in a screened-in porch, over an iced tea (or something stronger), through a summer rain.
It won a Pulp Factory Award for Best Anthology for good reason. If you like sci-fi, you'll enjoy this. If you're not a sci-fi fan -like me, you'll enjoy the story-telling and characterizations. It's just plain fun to read."

Thanks again, George.

AFTER SUICIDE BOMB WRAPS UP...


There are still a few chapters to go before my serialized novel, Suicide Bomb wraps up, but I've been giving a lot of thought to what to do as a Patreon exclusive after the serialized novel is completed. After some back and forth, I have decided what to do after Suicide Bomb is finished and published by BEN Books.

I have been planning a series of novellas (similar in size to the Snow books) featuring Sommersville, Georgia Sheriff Tom Myers, who some of you will remember from Evil Ways and Deadly Games! (and the upcoming Evil Intent). Although Myers was involved in those three stories, neither he nor his deputies were the main focus.

That will change as I write IN THE WIND - A SHERIFF TOM MYERS MYSTERY (Book 1) as a weekly serialized novel starting a week or two after the completion of Suicide Bomb. Once I know when that will be, exactly, I will let everyone know. There are already a couple of chapters written and I hope to pull ahead a bit before I start posting.

Doing a serialized novella sounds like a better idea to me than a full-length novel so we can reach the end in 4 or 5 months as opposed to almost 2 years as with Suicide Bomb. This will also allow me to keep the content fresh. Here's the pitch for IN THE WIND - A SHERIFF TOM MYERS MYSTERY: A secret federal safe house in Sommersville, Georgia is hit and a federal witness flees custody. The authorities descend on the county in search of
their prize witness. They are convinced he is hiding out in the wilds of Sommersville. Can local sheriff, Tom Myers find him and bring him in before hired killers do?

The cover above is something I threw together as a placeholder. I will probably use it, or something similar during the writing phase like I do with Suicide Bomb. It is not the final cover.

Not a patron? This will be a great jumping on point.

More news as it develops.

PLANNING FOR SNOW SERIES 2 IS UNDERWAY! #THESUMMEROFSNOW

Art by Jeff Austin.
Here's a #TheSummerOfSnow tease.

Playing with some cover text/art for an upcoming Snow series 2 story. This is one of the earliest Snow plots I developed after I created the series. In fact, the 'Hunt' part predates Snow. Hmmm... I know, I know, I still have 2 books left in series 1. Don't worry. I'm working on them too.

A little behind the scenes info. Before there was an Abraham Snow, there was Abraham Hunt and the plan was to call this book Hunt's Bounty, Hunt's Revenge, Hunt's... well, you get the idea. Now, Hunt and Snow are not the same character, in fact, they are quite dissimilar. I started Hunt's Bounty, but later set it aside. I took a few of the ideas, not to mention the first name of the protagonist from the original story and used them in the creation of Abraham Snow. In series 2, coming 2020 most likely, I have plans to have the two characters meet in a story I'm calling Snow Hunt and maybe Snow Bounty if it's a two-parter, which is what I'm thinking at the moment. All of that is subject to change, of course.

More Snow Hunt details to follow. Look for it in Snow Series 2.

There is nothing quite as exciting as having a new piece of art hit your inbox. Today, #TheSummerofSnow kicked into high gear for me today with the arrival of the new SNOW POSTER art by the amazingly talented Jeffrey Hayes. I am absolutely blown away by this piece. You can definitely expect to see this as a banner at conventions in 2020 and will no doubt be used in multiple places. I love it! A bug, big, BIG SHOUT OUT to Jeffrey for this amazing piece! Now, I just need to write an epic Snow thriller to fit this image. Ha! Ha!

Says Hayes about the cover, "Was hoping to get this done a bit sooner, but here is the final poster / cover illustration for author Bobby Nash’s “Snow” series. I hope he will get good use out of the art for a possible future book cover or promotion of his series. Have a great weekend. enjoy!"

If you want to see more of Jeffrey Hayes incredible artwork, check out his Plasmafire Graphics site. If you need a cover or a poster, Jeffrey comes highly recommended.

Chapter 31 ad.
The story so far...
A methodical killer known only as The Controller has nearly perfected a procedure that can turn anyone into an assassin from afar. After carrying out the pre-planted assignment, the assassin then kills themselves. DC Metro Homicide Detective Catherine Jackson has been assigned a case that puts her on The Controller's radar and he has become fascinated with her. Agent Patterson discovers that The Controller has turned a Secret Service Agent into the next suicide bomber. When she confronts the agent, he opens fire in the Oval Office. This chapter, we check in on some of our other players who find themselves in sudden danger.

Currently, the novel is a little over 87,100 words.

Chapter 32 ad.
Just a head's up! SUICIDE BOMB is an adult suspense/thriller. There's a good deal of murder, death, mayhem, and terror taking place in this story. There will even be some cussing and sex too. Please be aware of that going in. If it were a movie, I suspect it would have an R rating. You've been warned. There will be some adult language.

Please, join us and sit back, have fun, and enjoy the carnage and mayhem of SUICIDE BOMB.

As always, I appreciate your support. Feedback is also welcome and appreciated.

About Deadly Games!:
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, Snow Falls, and more.

John Bartlett and Benjamin West return in DEADLY DEALS!

SOMETIMES I GET ASKED STUFF... EPISODE 48!


And we're back for the 48th installment of Sometimes I Get Asked Stuff… WOW. 48 of these things. Who woulda thunk it? You can check out all of the past installments of Sometimes I Get Asked Stuff... hereIt's been quite a while since the last time I did one of these so let's dive right in, shall we?

Q: What was the biggest writing obstacle or setback you overcame in 2019?

Familial obligations.

Q: How successful was your first novel?

Evil Ways did so-so, sales wise when it premiered. However, I consider it very successful in terms of opening doors at other publishers where I started to get paying work. Plus, over the twelve years it's been in print, it's had sales each year.

Q: If your life was a movie, what would be the title?

Running in Quicksand.
