SHERIFF MYERS SERIES

SHERIFF TOM MYERS MYSTERIES

IN THE WIND
A Sheriff Tom Myers Mystery

A MISSING FEDERAL WITNESS IS ON THE RUN IN SOMMERSVILLE! Sheriff Tom Myers returns in an all-new mystery series from BEN Books and author Bobby Nash. Originally appearing in Nash’s first published novel, EVIL WAYS, the fan-favorite Sheriff Myers and his deputies returned in the novel DEADLY GAMES! Now, at long last, Tom Myers is back in his own series of mystery/thrillers beginning with IN THE WIND

In The Wind – A Tom Myers Mystery: 
A safehouse ablaze. 
4 dead federal agents. 
A missing federal witness. 
2 wounded agents clinging to life. 
Another day at the office for Sheriff Tom Myers. 

When a secret joint FBI/US Marshal safehouse in Sommersville, Georgia is attacked, federal witness Bates Hewell flees custody in the confusion and heads for the hills. The authorities descend on the county in search of their prize witness, now classified as “In the Wind!” The FBI and US Marshals Service are convinced that their material witness is hiding out in the wilds of undeveloped Sommersville County, an area with its own set of laws and rules. Can local sheriff, Tom Myers find him and bring him in before a band of hired killers do? 

Tom Myers' story began in EVIL WAYS and continued in DEADLY GAMES! but the Sommersville sheriff’s adventures are far from over. Sheriff Tom Myers returns in IN THE WIND, the first in a new series of mystery/thriller novellas from award-winning author Bobby Nash and BEN Books. Snow’s FBI Agent Tom “Mac” McClellan guest stars in this story.

Sheriff Tom Myers and Deputy Ben Dooley have one last tough assignment each to perform in the final chapters of SUCH A NIGHT - A Tom Myers Mystery by Bobby Nash posted now at www.patreon.com/bobbynash. Tom Myers and the Sommersville Sheriff's Department will return in Standing on the Shadows (book 3) in early 2022.

With this post, we bring book 2 of the Tom Myers series to a close. It was originally going to be one chapter, but it worked better for the narrative to split them so instead of adding a week, I posted both of them as they are shorter chapters individually. Now that it's finished, I will give it another pass so there may be some changes, though I doubt they'll be big changes. Then, it's off to the editor. Once that's done, I'll add it to the production cue for release in paperback, ebook, and later, an audio book. Stay tuned.

WHEN CHARACTERS WON'T LEAVE...
 
In November, I wrote a blog post for my friend, Nicole Givens Kurtz's newsletter (which you should totally sign up for HERE and get a free book) about the return of Sheriff Tom Myers in my new series, In The Wind and how the character evolved and stuck around after his initial appearance in Evil Ways and Deadly Games! years ago. I also explain how it all ties into my Snow series as well.

Sometimes it is a pain when characters won't leave. Then, there are times when it turns out to be the best thing ever. I'd say Tom Myers' constant pestering me to give him his own story falls in the latter category. Lucky for me the character was too stubborn to go away quietly.

Below is the blog post in its entirety and Nicole's intro from her newsletter. Big thanks to her for asking me to write this post.

When Characters Won't Leave
by Bobby Nash

Don’t you just hate it when guests don’t know when to leave?

I’ve had this same issue crop up with characters before and why not, eh? I mean, when I create and write characters, they become real to me. Sometimes too real. Eventually, they stop listening to me until finally, they start telling me what they’re going to do.

As a writer, this is a great thing.

It’s also a pain in the butt.

When my characters become real, they have character traits, foibles, and personalities just like real people. At the best of times, those character traits will elevate the story and gives those characters that added oomph! (that’s a technical term) that helps the reader connect to them. Have you ever fallen in love with a fictional character? I know I have. This is why.

Way back in the previous century, sometime in the late 1990’s, I was writing what would become my first published novel. It was called Evil Ways (Shameless plug #1: you can still find Evil Ways at your favorite on-line retailer). Evil Ways is a mix of thriller, mystery, and horror. I once described the book as “imagine if Die Hard’s John McClane found himself in a horror movie setting.” Sounds fun, right?

Evil Ways stars FBI Agent Harold Palmer and his brother, small-town newspaper reporter/owner Franklin Palmer (Shameless plug #2: Evil Intent is coming in 2021. It is also currently being released as a serialized novel at www.patreon.com/bobbynash). The brothers are on the trail of a killer while reconnected after many years apart.

As a newbie novelist (I had already been published with comic books and short stories), I set about creating a fictional town and county called Sommersville, Georgia (before I realized there was a real Summerville, Georgia. Oops!). The action took place in this fictional county. I needed a local cop to interact with the Palmer brothers and that was the first time I met Sommersville Sheriff Tom Myers and his deputies, Benjamin Dooley and Christopher Jackson. They were important to the story, but were not the main characters. As luck would have it, they all survived the novel, although not unscathed as I had put them through the wringer.

In all honesty, I never planned to write these characters or fictional county again.

What did I know, huh?

My next novel was called Deadly Games! It features new characters - Atlanta PD Detective John Bartlett and photojournalist Benjamin West. Together, these two captured a madman six years earlier. He was convicted and sent to prison. Now, six years later, he enacts his revenge. (Shameless plug #3: you can still find Deadly Games! at your favorite on-line retailer). Part of the story takes place in a rural area.

A lightbulb went off that reminded me of this fictional town I put a lot of time into created. So, being the smart (or lazy) writer that I am, I set part of the action in Sommersville. There was no plan to bring in the sheriff’s department though.

Until the story demanded it.

Tom Myers returned with deputies Dooley and Jackson, which made Deadly Games! a kinda/sorta sequel to Evil Ways. I even made mention to the events as a reminder for the readers.

Since then, the character of Tom Myers has kept tapping on the back of my brain, reminding me that he’s ready to return whenever I need him. He will make a small appearance in 2021’s Evil Intent, by the way.

When I was looking for a companion piece to my Snow series (Shameless plug #4: all of the Snow books are still on sale and more are on the way. Visit www.abrahamsnow.com for more). Snow grew up in Sommersville County, which is something I originally threw in as an easter egg for longtime readers, but it was all part of Tom Myers’ plan to make a big comeback.

I shouldn’t have been surprised when a story idea hit me that would be perfect for Myers and his team. That’s when In The Wind – A Tom Myers Mystery was born. Not only had this character refused to go away, he is now headlining his own series and has solidified the Sommersville Saga and the BEN Books Thriller Universe.

Not bad for a one-off character, huh?

The lesson here is to never assume that anything is one and done when it comes to writing. Your characters might just surprise you and demand more time in the spotlight. Tom Myers certainly did. As a matter of fact, he’s not the only character to do that. Remind me to tell you about Lance Star one of these days (Shameless plug #5: all of the Lance Star: Sky Ranger books are still on sale at your favorite retailer. Visit http://lancestar.blogspot.com for more).

In The Wind is the first book in the Tom Myers Mystery series published by BEN Books (www.ben-books.com). It is available in paperback, ebook, and audio book. Read it FREE with your Kindle Unlimited subscription. Look for book 2 in early 2021.

Happy reading.

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.
More news as it develops.

IN THE WIND by Bobby Nash is a “must read.” This mystery thriller is set in the small town of Sommersville, Georgia, and it reminds
me of Mayberry, North Carolina. The main character, Sheriff Tom Myers, is as likable as Andy Griffith.
Bobby is a talented writer who who tells a great story. He mixes excitement, mystery, suspense, wisdom, and humor
together, and the result is a winner!
I highly recommend IN THE WIND,
SG
