What a great week it’s been. The preorders of Native Moments started getting shipped almost a month early and the first three Amazon reviews have been posted.
The first picture someone tagged me in on Facebook was a good friend living in Kenosha, WI and he was holding a copy of my book. It came as a surprise, and then more pictures started popping up. It’s such a good feeling to see my friends and family sharing my book with their friends and their excitement of reading it. The one person I was a little concerned about reading it was my mom’s friend. But she knocked it out in a few days and seemed to have enjoyed it. Her response was that she found herself “[…] really worried about Sanch and what he was going to do next […]the character has become real to me.” I was glad she didn’t mention the sex scenes or the plenitude of drugs and alcohol the characters consumed. That’s a conversation I’d rather not have with my mom and her friends.
This was a photo my nephew tagged me in. I’m excited to hear his feedback when he finishes. He’s a fan of Hunter Thompson and Tom Waits. Two dudes I dig as well. So if he likes my writing, I’m in good company.
Besides the pictures on Facebook, the first reviews from Amazon were posted as well and I was relieved to see they were all five stars. I know a one star will happen, it’s just a matter of time. But for now, I’ll soak in the stoke of the people who liked it.
Native Moments is available in paperback and kindle on Amazon.
One thought on “First Amazon Reviews In and Books Are Being Shipped”
Thumbs up, Nick! To me, there’s no greater compliment than when a reader can visualize and be drawn in by the scenes you’re painting with your words. Hope I get to read it soon.
