I’ve been doing a lot of starting and stopping when it comes to reading lately. Can’t seem to get fully invested into a book the last few weeks. A buddy of mine has been telling for a while now that I must read Stoner (New York Review Books Classics) by John Williams. It arrived in the mail yesterday. I skipped the introduction because I felt it was giving away too much of the story. After the first five pages it looks like I may have found a book that I will read in its entirety. If you want to read it too, I’d love to have a discussion with you after we finish. If you’ve read it before let me know in the comments and when I finish we can discuss it then.
Also, my publisher, Waldorf Publishing, is running a contest to see which 2016 authors will sell the most preorders in the month of February. If you haven’t ordered a copy yet, now would be a good time (I still feel slimy for these shameless plugs). You can order it here:Native Moments by Nic Schuck.
I’ve been working really hard to get the ending just right for you guys. The ending is tough work. The beginning is tough too, but not quite like the end. The reader has invested time and energy with you to get to the end, you better make it worth it. The beginning makes readers decide to keep reading, but the ending is where the reader decides to talk about the story and share it with others. The ending is where the book becomes a success. So I’m determined to get it right for you guys.
