TALK ABOUT YOUR FLASHBACKS!


Whoa! Talk about your flashbacks. I ran across this photo from 2009. In my office at my old house in front of my Lance Star: Sky Ranger poster. My goodness, look at all that dark hair. Hard to believe the beard is almost stark white now, just 9 years later. Of course, this was taken right after I got laid off from my job of 15 years and was about to entire freelance writing full time... so, maybe the white hair isn't all that surprising. Writing can be a stressful profession, you know. Ha! Ha!

MEET AUTHOR BOBBY NASH THIS WEEKEND AT CONCAROLINAS!


Meet Lance Star: Sky Ranger author Bobby Nash this weekend at ConCarolinas (June 1 - 3) in Charlotte, NC. I will be set up at Table #2 in Author Alley and will also be doing panels. Stop by and say hello.

My panel schedule:

FRIDAY, JUNE 1
9:00 pm - Superheroes in the Modern Day
Superheroes have been popular for decades, but society changes and our heroes need to, as well. What do we want from our superheroes now, that might be different from decades ago? How can superhero writers create characters that reflect the diversity of the population?

SATURDAY, JUNE 2
11:00 am - Live Action Collaboration
Come watch our writing teams collaborate on a character and topic the audience throws at them.

2:00 pm - The Novella Strikes Back!
The novella fell out of fashion several years back, but is now making a comeback in this time of e-readers and digital publication. Let's explore the benefits and costs off novella writing, and why it is an option novelists should consider.

3:00 pm - Being Prolific or Is Rapid Release Bulls&%t?
How fast do you NEED to release books to make a living? Once upon a time it took years for books to be released, but these days, readers are demanding we write as fast as they can consume. Our panel talks about whether or not you need to release a book every fifteen minutes to make money.

4:30 pm - Author Reading with Bobby Nash

9:00 pm - Off With Her Head!
There’s no way around it – sometimes a character has to die. Should you use poison, a blade, fire? What’s the surest method? How long will it take for him to die? Let’s talk about the nitty-gritty of killing off characters.

We hope to see you there.

DO YOU REVIEW?


Read any good books lately? Did you leave a review? If not, you should and here's why: Reviews help books (and movies, comics, music, audio, video, etc) move up in the rankings. So, if you like a book, take a couple of seconds to leave a starred review and a simple written review like "I loved the novel!" or "This is a great book!" or something like that. Your favorite authors will get a little ranking boost and you'll have helped them keep creating new content. It's a win/win for everyone. It only takes a few seconds and the creators will love you for it!

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.


BOOKS PUBLISHED IN 2017
SnowFalls (BEN Books)
SnowStorm (BEN Books)
LanceStar: Sky Ranger Vol. 2 Audio (Airship 27/Radio Archives)
LanceStar: Sky Ranger Vol. 3 Audio (Airship 27/Radio Archives)
DominoLady: Sex As A Weapon Audio (Moonstone Books/Radio Archives)
SnowDrive (BEN Books)
85North (Falstaff Books)
LanceStar: Sky Ranger Vol. 4 Audio (Airship 27/Radio Archives)
TheRuby Files Vol. 2 (Airship 27)
TheRuby Files Vol. 2 Audio (Airship 27/Radio Archives)
Sandersonof Metro (Trinity Comics)

FourTomorrows – A Space Opera Box Set [Earthstrike Agenda] (Mechanoid Press)

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.
