SNOW FALLS is an ebook novella published by Stark Raving Press.
About Snow Falls:
Half an inch is all that stands between life and death.

After thwarting an assassination attempt on a diplomat that endangers his sister, Snow leaps into action to keep his family out of a killer’s crosshairs. Teamed with his grandfather, himself a former government operative, and a couple of old friends, a FBI Agent, and a former car thief, Snow is determined to stop the assassin before he or she can take another shot at the target.

4. What is your favorite book?
Now this is a tough question because the answer is likely to change on a day by day basis. In fact, I changed my answer so many times I think I’ll just stick with a non-committal answer. How’s that for dodging? HA! HA!
5. What other hats do you wear besides the writer hat?
On occasion I dive into over roles. I am a co-host of the Earth Station One podcast [www.esopodcast.com]. I am an occasional extra in TV and movies, and even more rare, I actually do some acting. On the writing side of things, there are a number of writing-related roles that I fill. I handle marketing, promotion, and basically running the business side of my writing career. Maybe one day I’ll be able to afford someone to help out with that.
6. What link can we find you at?
You can always find me at http://www.bobbynash.com and I am on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, etc. You can find all those links on my website. Please stop by and say hi.
My Most Common Mistake as a Writer
In addition to typos… damn those typos… I think the most common mistake I make as a writer is falling into patterns. While there is something to be said for having a signature shot or a definitive writing style, I strive to be careful not to repeat the same actions again and again. Here’s one I find myself writing often:
They hit the ground hard in a tangle of arms and legs.
This is part of a fight scene as two characters wrestle to the ground, kicking and gouging, as the old song says. Sometimes I change it, other times I leave it. It all depends on if it works in context or not.
There’s nothing actually wrong with this type description, at least in terms of the story. Where the author, in this case me, has to be careful is that this phrase isn’t used in every single fight scene I write.
Being aware of your go to phrases is an important aspect to writing. The common mistake is not to notice or catch it.
