A western adventure

Danger on the open plain! Award-Winning Author Bobby Nash brings together two terrifying tales from the world's greatest frontier... The Wild West!

Fans of Westworld and Tombstone will feel right at home in this savage land.

DISCOUNT BOOK MAN SPOTLIGHTS SNOW FALLS $.99 EBOOK SALE!

Discount Book Man spotlights SNOW FALLS by Bobby Nash. Published by BEN Books..
Read all about it here: http://discountbookman.com/snow-falls-by-bobby-nash

Get SNOW FALLS ebook for only $.99 cents in May HERE.

"It's a difficult thing for a writer to show a love for an influence without becoming a copy or a pastiche of it. But in SNOW, Bobby Nash basically teaches a tutorial in that hard-to-get-a-hold-of skill. If you don't hear a '70s TV detective theme song in the back of your head while reading, you're reading it wrong. This is a grade-A work by a writer hitting his stride and hitting it hard."
--Sean Taylor, author of Show Me A Hero, Gene Simmons' Dominatrix

About Snow Falls:

“Sometimes half an inch is all that stands between life and death.”

After a near fatal encounter while deep undercover in South America, Abraham Snow retires from his work as a government operative, moving in with his grandfather during his recuperation. Once there, however, Abraham realizes that his grandfather has an ulterior motive: He wants Abraham to join the family business, Snow Security Consulting.

Abraham, however, soon learns that working with his family can be just as treacherous as deep cover work - especially when caught in the crossfire between his father and grandfather. But when an assassination plot against a visiting dignitary puts the entire family at risk, Abraham must use all of his talents and contacts to keep them safe.

SNOW FALLS is the first book in the continuing adventures of Abraham Snow.

“Bobby Nash is my 'go to' guy for thrills and kills on the page, and Snow is why...”
-- Paul Bishop, author of Lie Catchers, Croaker

SNOW DRIVE BRINGS HOME ANOTHER 5 STAR READER REVIEW!

WE LOVE READER REVIEWS!

A BIG THANK YOU to John Kilgallon for his kind words and nice 5 STAR Amazon review of SNOW DRIVE.

"Third in the Snow series from Bobby Nash, "Snow Drive" is a fast paced action-er with lots of character moments and NASCAR. Did I say NASCAR? Yep. The main plot is to solve sabotage occurring to a racing team at Atlanta Motor Speedway. While the main plot is interesting enough, there are also continuing elements from the earlier two books involving the Ortega cartel. One of the fun parts of the book is the development of Big John Salmon. He's Archer Snow's personal driver and mechanic, best friend to Abraham Snow, the main character. We learn NASCAR was a dream for him, one that crashed and burned when he went to prison for auto theft. Lots of moments as he tries to empathize with Beau Chambers, the bad boy of the Chambers Race Team. Again, a great, fast read and highly recommended. Looking forward to the next Snow adventure!"

Thanks again, John. The kind words are much appreciated.

Now, I need to get that darn SNOW TRAPPED book finished.

5 STARS FOR SHADOWS ON THE HORIZON



A Big Round O' Thanks to author Darrell Grizzle for his amazing 5 STAR review of my latest release, Shadows on the Horizon. Now on sale in paperback and ebook from BEN Books! Get yours today!  You can read the full review HERE or below.


"Two very different Western stories from a master of pulp fiction! The first, Shadows on the Horizon, is a traditional Old West tale of betrayal and vengeance. The main character, Doc Brand, has reinvented himself after a violent past and finds himself reinventing himself again. I hope we see more stories about John Brand! The second story, Rattled, is a Weird West horror story that genuinely gave me the creeps in its description of a den of rattlesnakes that turns out to be more than meets the eye. The collection ends with a short essay on Westerns by Bobby Nash. Recommended for fans of Westerns and horror!"
 
Thanks again, Darrell. I appreciate you taking the time to leave a review. It means a lot.

THE OSI FILES RECAPS "SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST"


I had a great time talking with The OSI Files' John S. Drew and Ken Holtzhouser on Facebook live. We discussed The Six Million Dollar Man's 2nd episode, "Survival of the Fittest." Give it a watch HERE.

I had a few connectivity issues (the downside of using hotel wifi, I suppose) 

About "Survival of the Fittest": A plane carrying Oscar and Steve crashes in the ocean and the survivors make it to a deserted island. But Oscar is uneasy as he knows his life is in danger and the assassin out to get him may still be among the survivors. 

Look for the audio podcast in a day or so.

FEELIN' LIKE A ROCK STAR!


From the feeling like a rock star files.

Bobby and the Mikes in all their glory
Today, Facebook informed me that a photo had been uploaded of me and its facial recognition software wanted to tag me. Naturally curious, I went to look at the photo. It was a photo of my buddy, Robert McIntyre taken at the WHOlanta. All good. What I couldn't figure out was why FB was trying to tag me. I swear I looked at the photo a couple of minutes before the realization hit me that there's a photo of me, Mike Gordon, and Mike Faber from the ESO Network podcast on the shirt Rob's wearing. What's worse, Mike G. and I had even talked about the shirt the night before on the phone. So, I felt like a clueless idiot and a rockstar all at the same time.

Not a bad way to kickstart the day, huh?

Or, as Mike likes to say, #prolificproblems :)

CONCAROLINAS RELEASES 2018 PANEL SCHEDULE [UPDATED WITH TABLE ASSIGNMENTS]

Click on the image for a larger view.
ConCarolinas has released their panel schedule for this year's convention, held June 1 - 3 in Charlotte, NC. My schedule is in the graphic above, but you can see the full schedule HERE!

As always, these things are subject to change up until the panel actually starts. I am on 5 panels this year with some interesting topics. I hope you'll join us at ConCarolinas.

This is a great literary focused con. This is a great opportunity to meet a lot of authors and pick up some great reads.

The full panel schedule has been posted HERE.

Bobby's schedule:

FRIDAY, JUNE 1
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
Come watch our writing teams collaborate on a character and topic the audience throws at them.

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.

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.

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.

I will be sharing an Author Alley table with Darin Kennedy. We will be at table #2. See map below.

THE WRAP UP-- A FULL WEEKEND: FREE COMIC BOOK DAY AND WHOLANTA!


I had an absolutely amazing day yesterday.

It was an early start as I took a road trip to Kingdom Comics in Alabama for Free Comic Book Day, which, as always, continues to be an amazing event. Stan Daniels and his crew put on an amazing FCBD event and I was thrilled to be part of it. I had a lot of fun with friends both old and new, which is always a nice bonus. My Birmingham appearances are always great fun. My only regret is I didn't get a photo of my table.

After returning to Atlanta, I stopped by WHOlanta briefly and hung out after hours with friends. There were many laughs shared. A great cap to the day hanging out with wonderful people. We were having so much fun I never even thought about snapping a photo or two.

This morning got off to a great start as well with an appearance on The Chronic Rift talking about one of my favorite mini-series, V (full story to follow, but here's the link).

Not a bad way to spend the weekend. Not bad at all.

#FBF: 5 QUICK WAYS TO HELP YOUR FAVORITE AUTHOR!


I wrote this post last year on my blog, but it's still just as true today. 

One of the questions I get asked often at conventions and appearances is "How can I (or we) help you?" First off, being at the con or event and stopping by my table is always a good start so they are already off to a good start. Last night, I ran across the image above and liked it so I thought I would share. Sadly, I do not know who created it to give them credit, but there is a web address at the bottom.

I thought I would take a look at each step.

Buy their books seems like a no-brainer, but you'd be surprised how often those who ask the question don't actually buy a book. Yeah, it's a head-scratcher for me too. If you see an author at a convention or signing, unless they are a big name author, they most likely purchased the books from their publisher, usually at a discount, and they make a couple bucks off of the sale. Buying a copy not only makes the author feel good that their book(s) is going home with a reader, but it helps pay for lunch or their gas to and from the event or the table cost at a convention.

Review their books is a biggie. No matter where you bought the book, leaving a review at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Books-A- Million, wherever you like, or at each, is like gold. Word of mouth sells books. I'm more willing to try a book from an author I'm not familiar with if a friend tells me the book is a good read. Reviews are always appreciated, even if you don't like the book. The more reviews on a site like Amazon, for example, means more promotion placement on that site. If you liked ____, then you'll like _____. Reviews help make that happen.

Follow them and share on social media is a good, quick, and easy way to spread the word. I am very lucky to have a small group on social media that shares my posts to their friends. It takes seconds, but the impact could be fantastic and has the potential to gain the author new readers. I try to promote books from writers I know or movies from actors and directors I know. Indie creators generally don't have a large (or any in some cases) budget so social media is a good avenue to spread the word about my projects, even those that are still in production to hopefully build buzz. Supporting Patreon, Kickstarter, and GoFundMe projects is also a good social media way to help out if that's of interest to you. Also, if you take photos at a con, on a panel, at a writer's conference, or book signing, tag the creators. It's a good bet they will then share that photo and promote you. It's the circle of social media.

Recommend them. Remember what I said about word of mouth? It's a powerful marketing tool. If you follow me on social media (I'm on FacebookTwitterInstagramGoogle+PinterestLinkedInPatreonAmazon, and GoodReads. Please stop by and visit.) you've no doubt seen the "Promote what you love instead of bashing what you hate" post I do from time to time. That is what this part id all about. If you read a book, watch a movie, or have a favorite TV show, play, or band, then tell the world about it. I'd much rather see posts talking about how much you love musicals, which are not my thing, than seeing your post about how you hate Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (for example) and only watched two episodes and can't believe it's still on the air. You don't like it. I get it. That's fine. I do like it, so I will skip your posts. Plus, there is already a lot of hate and negativity going around about life, politics, healthcare, jobs, religion, war, and on and on. Do we really need to add more hate for something that we find entertaining? Let's be positive. Tell me what you love. Who knows, I might love it too.

Offer to help. This takes us back to the beginning of this blog post and since I started writing this, I have added a few ways that anyone can help their favorite authors. We'll start with the two on the infographic above. Approach a library or bookstore on the author's behalf. This one is simple. Next time you're there, ask if they have any books by Bobby Nash (or your favorite author). If not, ask if they have heard of the author or mention a book you enjoy. It may or may not be enough to convince them to put a book on the shelf, but you never know. Bookstores and libraries usually have a local author section. If your author is local, that might help as well. Donate a copy to the library yourself. Libraries often take donations, as do hospitals and places where people spend a lot of time waiting. I have donated some of my books that way. I don't know if they lead to sales or not, but you never know.

All of this is a crap shoot, really. There's no tried and true method to get people to read our books. If there was, that would be great, but no. Word of mouth is still the best way to get someone to notice my books. To all of you who have helped spread the word, you have my sincerest thanks.

As always, I appreciate all of the help and support.

Thank you.

Bobby
