    G.I. Joe: First Salvo is #47 on Kindle's sales list this morning. Thank you all for the support.

    I've started the first chapter of book two. It'll feature an interesting confrontation between Joe Colton, Kwinn, and Shadow Tracker.

    My publicist (wife) has set up a Facebook page for the novel. If you want to become a fan, I'll post updates on the sequel's progress.

    Joe Rhyno (I am sure many of you know him from here or on other toy websites) has asked me to host a custom contest based on the novel G.I. Joe: First Salvo. The rules have just been posted on the book's Facebook page (which is Bill Nedrow's G.I. Joe Novel). The contest will last until midnight (central time) of September 30th, and the prize will be a blank body from Boss Fight.

    If you are interested, check out the Facebook page for more details: https://www.facebook.com/BillNedrowsGIJoeNovel

    Thank you to everyone who has shown support for the novel. I hope that everyone is enjoying it.

    I have a big follow up concerning the G.I. Joe: First Salvo custom contest. Robert Atkins, the wonderful G.I. Joe artist, has agreed to donate some art and signed prints for the contest. You can see his response if you click on Shares in the post about the contest.

    I will distribute more information when I get it. Thank you to Mr. Atkins for his generous support.

    There has been a lot of big news regarding this contest, which I am pleased to share. Many more prizes have been donated to the contest.

    In addition to the Robert Atkins artwork and Boss Fight body, a $40 Big Bad Toy Store gift certificate has been donated by BBTS. Also, a donor has made a Logan"Command Ops" figure from Marauder Task Force Gaming available.

    That's not all. Another group has not only donated another set of prizes but also incentives for people who demonstrate a commitment to participating in the custom contest. I've been asked not to reveal these until they are in hand (hopefully next week), but I am certain that customizers will be excited.


    All told, a Boss Fight body, Robert Atkins artwork, a $40 BBTS gift certificate, a Logan "Command Ops" figure from Marauder, and a soon to be revealed mystery prize are all available. Please check out BillNedrow's G.I. Joe novel Facebook page for all of the details, and buy G.I. Joe: First Salvo on amazon.

    The new incentive for the G.I. Joe: First Salvo custom contest can now be announced. Thanks to The AngelForge, we now have 15 sets of custom grab bag parts to distribute to people who are committed to entering the contest. Each grab bag includes 5 heads. One grab bag each will be given to the first 15 people who contact me and indicate that they are entering the contest. Participants will be asked a question about the novel to verify that the book has been purchased. Grab bags will be chosen at random and mailed to the participants. AngelForge has also added a prize pack to the prize pool (which also includes Robert Atkins artwork, a BBTS gift certificate, a Boss Fight blank body, and a Marauder action figure).
    See the Facebook page for pictures and further details.
