Thanks a million, Britton., It was great meeting you and your family. Keep on writing.

I RESOLVE...


Amazon wanted to know what my New Year’s writing resolutions are for 2017. 

I'm not really a resolutions guy. I plan, sure, but I do that throughout the year, not just at the beginning of the year. Planning requires the occasional restructuring or course correcting as things like real life or publishing issues get in the way. Believe me, they both happen. 2016 was a year where these type of hiccups happened to me a lot. 
If I had to make a New Year's Writing Resolution, I guess it would be to improve my time management skills so I can write more. My 2017 schedule is pretty full, which is great, but if I could improve my writing time that would be beneficial to moving my writing career forward and maybe gets me one step closer to my writing/publishing goals. #poweredbyindie
How about you? What are your 2017 resolutions?

Happy New Year!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!


I decided to take advantage of the nice Thanksgiving weather to do some writing outside. I don't have any big plans other than lunch with my parents and brother so I'm working on one of the novels that a publisher is anxiously (or is that impatiently?) awaiting. I'm so far behind schedule on deadlines and still playing catch up. Lots to do. Lots to do. Moreover, I'm thankful to have understanding publishers. It means a lot.

I am also thankful to everyone who visits this page or follows my misadventures on social media. You guys help keep me going. I mean that seriously. Plus, thanks to my patrons over on Patreon for your help. A big thank you goes out to my readers and those who have bought books. I an so thankful that I can tell stories and it's a nice bonus that people actually buy and read them. I'm also thankful for my family. I don't share a lot of personal details, but 2016 has been rough on my family )2014 and 2015 weren't no prizes either, believe me), but we're still here and sill weathering the storm. I am definitely thankful for that.

A big thanks to Airship 27 Productions and all of the writers and artists who have contributed to the success of Lance Star and his magnificent Sky Rangers. You are all aces in my book.

Happy Thanksgiving!

A SNEEK PEEK AT LANCE STAR: SKY RANGER "COLD SNAP!"


Reposting from Bobby Nash's website.

Sometimes you just have to switch gears. I'm working on a novel now and nearing the end, but just wasn't feeling it today. So, I switched over to another open project, also a novel featuring Lance Star: Sky Ranger, and worked on it instead and am getting a good bit accomplished. Switching gears helped today, I think. This is one of the joys I find with having multiple projects going at one time.

While working on it, I ran across this bit I wrote earlier and really liked it.
“Sure, the man can be a pompous ass most of the time, but show me a pilot that doesn’t have an arrogant streak about him and I’ll show you a pilot that never gets air under his wings. No way is he working for the Nazis! I’ll believe he was scooped up by aliens before I believe that!”

Read a sample chapter from The Adventures of Lance Star Vol. 1 by Bobby Nash. This collection leads into the Lance Star novel, "Cold Snap" coming 2017. Get your copy here.

THE ADVENTURES OF LANCE STAR - SKY RANGER LAUNCHES ON KINDLE!


Great news! Airship 27 Productions has collected my four Lance Star: Sky Ranger stories into one Kindle ebook volume called The Adventures of Lance Star - Sky Ranger on Amazon. In addition to collecting the stories, also look for a sneak peek at the Lance Star: Sky Ranger novel, "Cold Snap" coming in 2017.

OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE:

THE ADVENTURES OF LANCE STAR – SKY RANGER
By Bobby Nash

Way back in 2005, Airship 27 Productions launched a new series of pulp adventures featuring aviation hero, Lance Star.  One of the four writers recruited for that first volume was Bobby Nash, who quickly found himself completely enamored with the gutsy World War I veteran flyer.  Enough so that in the subsequent three volumes that would follow, Bobby made sure to provide a new story for each.

“It was clear to us,” admits Airship 27 Productions Managing Editor Ron Fortier, “that Bobby had a special love for this character.  Enough so that we transferred the copyrights to him.  Soon thereafter Bobby wrote and had published the first ever Lance Star comic book.”

When Nash approached Fortier a few years ago about publishing the first ever full length Lance Star novel, both parties were immediately on board with the idea.  That novel, tentatively titled – COLD SNAP, should be out sometime in 2017.  To promote its arrival, Airship 27 Productions has collected all four of Bobby Nash’s previously published Lance Star tales in this Kindle Only Edition.  Besides collecting those great pulp stories, this digital collection also includes the first chapter of Nash’s novel as a special bonus feature.

“We’re excited about Bobby’s plans for Lance Star,” concludes Fortier.  “We hope this collection will spur renewed interest in this great high flying hero.  Believe me, with a rising talent like Bobby Nash, the best is always yet to come.”

AIRSHIP 27 PRODUCTIONS – PULP FICTION FOR A NEW GENERATION!

Available only on Kindle.

NEW WEB ADDRESS FOR LANCE STAR: SKY RANGER DEBUTS!


Thanks to some ineptitude on the part of the Google Apps Team, I lost the www.lance-star.com domain name and can't get any help in solving the problem. I've been trying to pay Google Apps to renew the domain for months to no avail. Easy solution, I'm just going to go with the free http://lancestar.blogspot.com address and no longer pay Google. Seems like a win/win to me. Eventually, I'll migrate the Lance Star site over into www.bobbynash.com.

Please visit http://lancestar.blogspot.com for the latest Lance Star: Sky Ranger news.

Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

AWESOMEGANG INTERVIEWS AUTHOR BOBBY NASH!


Lance Star: Sky Ranger author Bobby Nash was interviewed by the fine folks over at Awesomegang. They talked writing habits (the good, the bad, and the ugly), Sherlock Holmes, Domino Lady. influences, upcoming projects, and what books Bobby would want to have with him if he suddenly found himself stranded on a deserted island. "I'm thinking, as long as I had a laptop, electricity, and wi-fi, I'd be okay," Nash joked.

You can read the full interview here.

"Thanks, Awesomegang. You're awesome. But then, you already knew that."
