Truer words...


A SOBERING THOUGHT...


A sobering thought, no? Sometimes it's easy to forget how many people are watching us, a lesson I was reminded of recently.

This is one of the reasons I try to be positive and optimistic when I interact with people, especially at cons and events. You just never know. I don't want to be the reason someone abandons their dream. I've had people that I know and those that I didn't try to discourage me from following my dream, but they aren't important. The important ones are those who encouraged me, gave me the occasional wish for good luck, or an attaboy when I achieved a goal. Those people are the ones I try to remember and pass the same along to others. 

I still have a ways to go before I achieve everything I set out to achieve, but I didn't give up. Let's journey together.

IT'S TIME FOR ANOTHER INSTALLMENT OF BOBBY'S BOX ART!

I worked on a couple of commissions for customers who purchased Bobby's Big Box O' Books or ordered autographed copies of books direct from me. 

The first commission has Dave Stevens' The Rocketeer ready to take flight. The gun didn't quite come out right.

The second commission featured my buddy, Randy Bishop's The Hawk of New York from his comic book of the same name..

And since I mailed out some packages of books today so you know what that means... it's time for Bobby's Box Art! Of the 4 pieces I sketched today, I think Spider-Man came out the best. Deadpool is okay. The markers we're a bit too dark on Captain America and The Hulk though. Always a concern when drawing against a brown background. #amdrawing #amwriting #BobbysBigBoxOBooks

These are fun. I enjoy drawing them.

Oh, Amazon, you rascals....

I'm not sure how my order of a Double Roll of Raffle Tickets turned into a double order of Reynolds Aluminum Wrap, but sadly, the two are not interchangeable. We're too close to my event for this kind of foul-up, Amazon. Sheesh!

I'm thinking about doing a raffle at Dragon Con. For every $20 spent, you get a raffle ticket. I will raffle off the 1 of a kind SNOW puzzle and a few others goodies at the show. I thought I would try it out at the Library event this Saturday. That may not happen now. We'll see.

UPDATE: Because I'm getting a lot of suggestions and people tagging Amazon on my behalf. It's cool. Amazon is on the case. I am not unhappy or upset with them. I thought it was funny, which is why I posted it. If I was pissed, I would have kept it to myself. I thought the mix up of the names was funny. Frustrating? Yes, but mostly funny. Just enjoy the humor. I've got the situation under control.

BIRTHDAY BLUES AND REDS...


I had a nice lunch out at Your Pie with my dad and brother. We stopped off for a DQ dessert after. Not a bad birthday even though it's my first without mom here to join us, which bummed me out more than a little bit this morning.

I capped the lunch off by buying myself a present. I picked up Avengers: Infinity War on Blu Ray and plan to enjoy it tonight after I get some writing done.

Bobby

If you've read and enjoyed any of them, we'd love a review, even if it's just "I liked this book."

Thanks and Happy Reading!

WELL, THIS JUST MADE MY DAY!

Not actual cover.
Now this made my day.

Bill Black, publisher of AC Comics posted this on Facebook today and it blew my mind. As you may know, I wrote a novel featuring the AC Comics character, Nightveil for Pro Se Productions, who has licensed them. That book should be out in November, I believe. Any time I write a licensed character, there is a bit of nervousness that sets in. These are the people who know, and in some cases, created the character(s) so they know them well. I don't want to be the guy who writes them poorly so that nervousness I mentioned sets in. Then, I saw this...

Bill Black wrote: "Just read the BOBBY NASH novel NIGHTVEIL: CRISIS AT THE CROSSROADS OF INFINITY soon to be published from Pro Se. SUPERB! Whatta movie this would make! FEMFORCE fans will love it. It is ALL Nightveil with a lot of LAURA WRIGHT thrown in. This pic has nothing to do with it but it sorta fits. Can't describe the story line. That would be telling! Read it! You'll love it!"

Whew! I'm thrilled that he liked it. That's a load off my shoulders.

Now, I just have to deal with the nervousness of if the fans/readers like it.

Nightveil is a character that I have been itching to write ever since I read her first adventure back in the  mid-80's when I was reading Americomics in high school. It's taken almost 30 years, but I finally got the chance. Proof positive that dreams do come true. Now, I keep waiting on that Fantastic Four, Captain America, and Thor writing dream to come true. Any day now, I'm sure. Ha! Ha!

NIGHTVEIL: "CRISIS AT THE CROSSROADS OF INFINITY"
A digest novel by Bobby Nash
COMING NOVEMBER 2018 from Pro Se Productions
Keep watching www.bobbynash.com for more on the novel's release.

TODAY'S OFFICE...


In the office today. I've already put down some words (hopefully, in the right order to make my editor happy) ready to drop some more after a short break. That hard chair is rough on the butt and back. #amwriting #writerproblems

FROM THE "IT'S FUNNY BECAUSE IT'S TRUE..." FILES!


Ran across this on social media tonight.

Just to put things in perspective. People are always trying to talk down my book prices. With a novel, the writer makes the least amount of money of the book's price, usually around $1 to maybe $2, if you're lucky.

GAH!!! LONGHAND!?!?!

This was me yesterday...

When there's nothing happening on set, I write. When I stupidly forget to bring my laptop, I write the old fashioned way. I haven't written a story long hand in years. It's an interesting feeling, but at least I can get a jump on this short story deadline.
