what ever happened to Joe Nobody?
« on: February 07, 2014, 06:37:45 AM »
I haven't seen him around here lately, unless he's posting in threads I don't read.

Given his history and his genre, I could make a great conspiracy theory out of this.

He's probably undercover in Belize, staking out drug traffickers...

... or working hard on his latest novel.

Let's assume A, and he'll be back when his mission's accomplished  :)

I would assume both. How else does he do the research for his books, anyway?  :P

I was wondering that too. I dropped him a line but haven't heard back. Miss his posts and hope he comes back soon.

I miss Joe's presence on KB. Could be a conspiracy...

Conspiracy theory one:*dates/facts may be inaccurate due to my laziness

April: Joe asks the question, if he had a huge marketing secret, should he share it or keep it to himself?

August: Joe laptop is stolen. Was it to find out this secret? Was there ever a secret to begin with?

September: Joe does a RBC interview where he flirts with his secrets. Was this interview a charade, a ploy to get to Joes secret? What if that person failed once again to get to it, how long could they keep their sanity as Joe foiled their every attempt?

November: Joe makes a rare public appearance at a gun store, or did he? After months of harassment, he sent a body double and waited in the parking lot, watching. But he never found out exactly which person it was. A failed mission.

Late January: His secrets on how to sale massive amounts of books at $9.99 are too powerful. So Joe does what he knows he has to do. Joe drops off the grid. A ghost. He's keeping his secrets safe. He's hunting you.



Conspiracy theory two:

Have we ever seen Hugh Howey and Joe Nobody at the same place, at the same time...?

I threatened to stalk him at a convention so maybe that's it.

There's a grainy photo of him on a beach in Panama, though some reports sight him dressed native in the 'stans. Saw him standing behind Putin in a photo last week, but he could be in NK or fishing in a sloop of Vera Cruz. But I think he's busy writing a book holed up in Honduras in a little shack with no internet or cell and no KB. The man's an artist I tell ya.  :P

Russell Blake changes his avatar and announces his deal with Clive Cussler.

Joe Nobody disappears.

The connections are there, people. You only need to look.

I think we've got the plot of the next Nobody opus right in this thread. Joe, are you listening?

Joe is testing a new theory somewhere off of I-10 in western Texas.

Getting serious for a moment:

Could it be related to that whole lawsuit thing issue Joe mentioned a while back, which was the last time I recall him being here?

Spoken like a true plotter. Do you write mystery/suspense, perchance?  :D

Frankly I'm glad Russell Blake's avatar changed. He cleaned up real good.  :D

But --- > "Nobody disappears." <--- Clever!!!!

It's been 9 days since I've heard of Joe.  :'(
Maybe I've scared him away!

An email from him popped up in my inbox this morning. He mentioned something about running low on ammo.

It's sad. His last few posts were about being targeted whenever he posted. Sad to see him go.

Jeepers, really? He must've deleted those. I don't see them now.

Hopefully he's just busy. KB's definitely a time-suck.

I know the Mods got involved so..... :(  I love reading his insight.
