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!
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
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
Just finished my first round of edits for my new novel, Panhandlers. Don’t have a confirmed release date yet, but I’m thinking maybe September 2018. It will be published by the same publisher as Native Moments, Waldorf Publishing. I will be working on getting a book cover soon to help with early promotions. As the title suggests, the setting is the Florida Panhandle and the … Continue reading Panhandlers, a novel
The definition of the short-story cycle is something along the lines of “an interconnected collection of stories.” The definition is a bit vague and people can argue which works are considered a “short-story cycle,” but some of the ones that are usually agreed on are In Our Time, Dubliners, Go Down, Moses, and Winesburg, Ohio. I would include a few of my favorites: What We … Continue reading The Short-Story Cycle
Hate to promote drinking especially when it has had such a negative impact on so many lives. But could it have possibly extended Hemingway’s life and art? Was alcohol something that could have made his life bearable up to that point it was no longer bearable? Would he have lasted so long without self-medicating? We don’t know, but it’s possible. Regardless, alcohol played an important … Continue reading How to drink like Hemingway
The short answer to this is because all the bad asses of the literary world have: Flannery O’ Conner, Joyce Carol Oates, Hemingway, Raymond Carver and the list goes on. But why ask this question? Because I like the short story. I like writing them and I like reading them, but the problem is that they don’t really sell. Sure, don’t write because you want … Continue reading Why write short stories?
Final edits of Native Moments are finished. Besides promoting the book, there is nothing else I can do with it. Now I turn my attention to my next project. I have a novella already finished and maybe twenty short stories. Was thinking of trying to get a collection of short stories published, but I don’t know how well short stories sell. I still think, if my … Continue reading What Next?
