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

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.

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
In six months my second novel, Panhandlers will be published. I’m really proud of this one. I was really proud of Native Moments, too, but I feel I’ve grown as a writer since then and I really look forward to sharing this new story with you. I’m looking for advanced readers that will share their review of it on their blogs or on Amazon and … Continue reading Advanced Readers needed for Panhandlers
Getting testimonials for the back of a book is a strange task. I imagine if you have an agent that is what the agent helps with, but I wouldn’t know. I have had my share of rejections from them. Panhandlers will be my second novel published without one. I’ve decided with my third – yet-to-be-finished – novel, I will attempt to go that route again. … Continue reading Testimonial for back cover of Panhandlers
I’m fascinated, obsessed may be a better term, with word count. I want to make sure I reach the magical number of 50,000 words when writing a novel. Native Moments is around 95,000 words. Perhaps a bit on the long side. As of now, Panhandlers is just above 58,000 words and I’m working on paring it down to get it as tight and precise as … Continue reading The Art of the Short Novel
It’s been a few days over a year since my debut novel, Native Moments, was published. It’s been fun. The best part is seeing the reviews or having people tell you that they read it and liked it. When it was first released, it was #1 on Amazon’s new release list for Surfing. It reached as high as number #7 in Surfing after it was … Continue reading Panhandlers, A Novel in Stories Book Cover Reveal
Woke up today to a great 5 star review. I’ve heard there is a magic number, 25 maybe, that once you reach that many reviews Amazon will start promoting your book. I’m not sure how true that is. What I do know is that reviews make writing feel like you didn’t completely waste your time. It makes you feel like writing is a worthwhile endeavor. … Continue reading Amazon Reviews
