I was recently invited on the Behind the Grind Podcast, a podcast about entrepreneurship based out of Pensacola, FL. We spoke about Emerald Coast Tours’ 10th year anniversary, a business I started in 2012. We also discussed both of my novels, Native Moments and Panhandlers. Give it a listen here: Behind the Grind Podcast – Nic Schuck Continue reading Behind the Grind Podcast
Hint: Free book offer at the bottom of the post. Writing a book is difficult. Getting your book published is more difficult than writing a book. Selling books is harder than both and probably the most difficult part of being a writer. I worked hard trying to go the traditional route for my first novel. Received 76 rejections from agents and publishers. Spent countless hours … Continue reading Should I Advertise my Books on Amazon or Google?
Small accomplishment, but it means a lot to me in my writing journey. On this day, 03/06/2020, Native Moments reached #1 bestseller status in the Central and South American Travel and Tourism category on Amazon. I think what’s really surprising to me is that this happened nearly 2.5 years after it was published, which lets me know that it is surviving in an era of … Continue reading #1 Bestseller

Since Panhandlers has been finished I’ve been slowly working on my third novel. This one is slow going. I’m attempting to write a Southern as opposed to a Western. I’ve always loved Westerns and wanted to write one, but I don’t live in the West. I’ve never lived in the West. I have no family that live out that way either. I felt it would be … Continue reading Writing Update: Third Novel in the Works
Looking for some readers that would enjoy reading a gritty southern story set in the piney woods of the Florida Panhandle. Need people that would be willing to read it in exchange for honest reviews on Amazon and Goodreads. If you have a blog even better. Email me at Nic.Schuck@gmail.com and I will send you a pdf copy. If you would rather just buy it, … Continue reading Free copy of Panhandlers!
I’ve always been a closet poet. I consider myself a novelist, but poetry is at the heart of all writing. I’ve never shared my poetry like I have my prose. It was something secret and a way to get better at writing when I was too stubborn or frustrated with my novels. Then I found Everette Maddox’s poetry. Two things instantly attracted me to his … Continue reading 225 Zaragoza Street, a poem
My follow up novel, Panhandlers, was officially released on Oct. 15th, 2018 and the Kindle version was released shortly after on Oct. 24th. Two early reviews have come in, one from Readers Favorites and another on Amazon from a reader. I’m including both in their entirety in hopes that it entices you to head over to Amazon and purchase a copy. Reviewed by Kris Moger for Readers’ … Continue reading First Two Reviews for Panhandlers!
My next novel, Panhandlers, will be released October 15th and as I did with my first release, went to Goodreads to set up a giveaway. Goodreads now charges authors to give their book away for free. And they charge a lot. $199 is the cheapest. Don’t understand how that is beneficial. Instead I’ll run my own giveaway. To enter: go to my Facebook page and … Continue reading Panhandlers Book Giveaway
Had the pleasure of talking with Adam Sinclair, a writer for Palm Beach Happening and he asked me some pretty fun questions. I always feel a little silly when I read the interviews for the first time, but I do enjoy them. Hope you enjoy it, too. Palm Beach Happening interview Panhandlers is currently available for preorder on Amazon. Continue reading Interview with Palm Beach Happening
