TRYING TO SELL SNOW IN A BLIZZARD!


Yep. That says it all. Trying to sell snow in a blizzard sounds exactly like book promotion. It's not easy, that's a fact.

Today, I'm trying to write and not being overly successful. I'm also trying to come up with some new ways to promote the Snow books so I can get them in front of more readers. Sales need a good spike so we can continue beyond the initial 6 books. Busy, busy. #amwriting

A SNOW TRAPPED SNEAK PEEK!

Click for larger view.
Not final cover.
It's sneaky peeky time, boys and girls. Here's a snap of the opening few lines from the first draft of SNOW TRAPPED, the upcoming 4th digest thriller by Bobby Nash featuring fan-favorite character, Abraham Snow. Published by BEN Books.

Look for it March 2018.

Learn more about SNOW here and here.

Here's a better look at the copy that is pasted above:

###

The plan was simple.

They had rehearsed it back and forth, side to side, and twelve ways from Sunday. There was nothing that would get in the way of the crew’s objective. They had planned for every detail.

Tommy Reardon was the brains of the operation. It was he that first put the crew together eight years earlier when they took down a hidden vault in South Florida where a cabal of wealthy businessmen hid their dirty money from their less than legitimate endeavors. The take had set up each man on the team for life. They were all filthy rich and had gotten away without incident.

After all, what were their victims going to do, call the police and report that their ill-gotten gains had been stolen.

Of course not.

###

This is all first draft, of course. It could, and probably will, change somewhat.

As I have mentioned before, SNOW is my tribute to the action detective/p.i. stories I grew up with. This one leaps into action movie territory with a story that is clearly int he same vein as Die Hard. That's right. We're fighting bad guys in a building. Heh. I was so tempted to plant tongue firmly in cheek and call this one SNOW HARD, but I suspected there were many a jokester out there that would think it meant something else so we'll save that title for the porn parody. Ha!

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!
