Meet the “Genre Mixologist”: an interview with Bobby Nash

He’s a fascinating genre-bender in his work, writing mysteries, crime novels, science fiction and of course, super powered fiction. This makes him the perfect subject for my second creator interview.

HAPPY NEW YEAR! A LOOK BACK AT 2017 AND BOOKS RELEASED!


As we settle in to the final few hours of 2017 (to which I say, good riddance), I thought I would take a look back at my output for the year. Let's start with the not so good so this ends on a positive note.

If you follow me on any social media platform or regularly visit my website, you'll know that 2017 was a rough year for me both personally and professionally. My Mom passed away in September after a 3 year battle against cancer. A large chunk of my last year and a half has been caring for her as her condition worsened. Her loss is still a gut punch that will take time to heal. My Dad developed a medical issue and knee replacement surgery as well during this time so I was caretaker for both of them. I was laid off from my day job at the right time to take care of them, so that was a positive, at least. I never thought I would be thankful to be let go from a job.

I had to cancel several convention appearances in 2017 while taking care of the folks and many deadlines fell behind. I am appreciative that the conventions and publishers I work with were all understanding and worked with me to readjust my schedule. I have already started building my 2018 convention schedule. March, specifically, is packed with something each weekend.

My Dad is doing better, recovering nicely from his surgery. We're still all pretty raw emotionally here, but my dad, brother, and I are getting through it together.

I have started getting back into the writing groove. I'm not quite back up to the daily word count I was hitting before, but I'm slowly getting back into the swing of things and there are big plans afoot for 2018, including catching up old deadlines and a few new projects being added to the pipeline. 2018 looks to be a busy year.

Speaking of busy years, 2017 did see some books released featuring my work, including 5 audio books (reading previously released material), 1 bundle (featuring the previously released Earthstrike Agenda novel), and 7 paperback releases. You can see the full list below.

All of these releases are still available wherever you buy your favorite books. If they don't have it, they can certainly order it for you.

I look forward to an exciting 2018 as series continue and new projects also launch. As a matter of fact, I spoke with an artist friend of mine today and we kicked around some ideas on the comic book front. Keep watching this space for more details as I have them to share.

Thank you for following my assorted ramblings this year. Please, stick around for more. I will try to be entertaining. You can also keep track of my various comings and goings on PatreonFacebookInstagramTwitterPinterestGoogle+LinkedIn!www.bobbynash.com, and on this page.

Happy New Year!

SEE HOW THE WRAITH BEGINS! SANDERSON OF METRO NOW AVAILABLE!

Sky Rangers Bobby Nash and Frank Dirscherl have re-teamed for a new novel called Sanderson of Metro, which 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 Dirscherl'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," said Nash of the collaboration. "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."


Hardcover edition
SANDERSON OF METRO
A novel featuring The Wraith by Frank Dirscherl and Bobby Nash


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.

Witness to the original Sanderson's early childhood, the emptiness in his soul, his yearning for meaning in his life, his finding it in the wilds of Africa and coming face-to-face with the man who would one day become his greatest nemesis. And finally, how he was endowed with the awesome powers of the Eyes of Judgment, becoming the very first Wraith Dread Avenger of the Underworld.

This action packed, atmospheric thrill ride could only be told now and could only be told by master storytellers like Dirscherl and Nash. An epic, never to be repeated and not to be missed.

Paperback edition
SANDERSON OF METRO is now available for purchase at the following:
Amazon (paperback)
Lulu (paperback)
Lulu (hardcover)
More to come...

SKY RANGER AUTHORS TEAM UP ON NEW PROJECT...

Ste One: plot/character notes.
Lance Star: Sky Ranger authors Bobby Nash and Bernadette Johnson are writing a book together. They had their first plot/character discussion yesterday and reportedly made some good progress. "I'm looking forward to working with Bernie to bring this project to life," said Nash. "It'll be fun."

Apologies for the pixelated, blurry photo, but they authors are not yet ready to share details on the project.

"This one probably won't see daylight until late 2018," Nash said. "Or, if our original plan works the way we hope, probably 2019."

Stay tuned for more details as the creators can share them.
