MEET AUTHOR BOBBY NASH THIS WEEKEND AT CONCAROLINAS!


Meet The Ruby Files author.co-creator 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!

Rick Ruby Rocks the Pulp Ark Awards -- Takes home THREE Awards!


Did we not tell everyone when The Ruby Files Vol. 2 was released that it was going to be the anthology of the year at the Pulp Ark Awards? Well, I was right. (nyah, nyah, nyah, nyah, nyah).

Seriously, though Team Ruby took home not just the Best Anthology award but also Best Short Story (Bobby Nash, "Takedown") and Best Interior Art (Nik Poliwko).

Go, Team Ruby!

Casting Rick Ruby 2018! (Sean plays director)

In honor of Rick Ruby being nominated for the Pulp Ark Awards, let's have some fun and cast the Rick Ruby movie. (and if you haven't voted yet, here's the link: https://tinyurl.com/ybxlyey7)

My (Sean's) choices using contemporary actors:


Rick Ruby
Damien Lewis


Evelyn Johnson
Gugu Mbatha-Raw


May Belle Williams
Christine Adams


"Broom Stick" Strickland
Clarke Peters 


"Mac" McGinnis
Bruce Greenwood


Donna Dixon
Anna Lynne McCord


Edie Rose Adams
Typhaine Daviot


Carla St. Clair
Elizabeth Henstridge


Robert Perry
David Boreanez

Making this a movie in the 50s, 60, or even 70s would have been a lot easier to pick actors for me, but using contemporary actors was a lot harder. I tend to follow the older ones or still think of the 30-something ones as "Disney kids." *grins*

We'll give Bobby a few days to get back from his convention, and see what he has to say about it (and maybe even give his choices).
