My first novel The Nephew

Hello all,

So, after several years or intermittent writing and research, i'm "almost" ready to launch this to the world.

I'd appreciate feedback on the website "look and feel" as well as interest in the book itself.

Thank you :)

Website design is straight forward and easy to navigate. Excerpt is from my perspective well chosen as it is not covering action but a more subtile perspective of the heroes personality.
Makes me curious regarding upcoming nivel. Good luck!

Thanks for the interest. That's strange, it's hosted on a US based server and by a US company, here's another option, FB may also be blocked, but if not, you can read an excerpt here: https://www.facebook[dot]com/thenephewnovel/videos/2075517252682410/

Very well done sir.
The site is clean, and there is just enough content to make a person want more. I know that I do.

Your excerpt is enough bait to make me bite the hook. I am looking forward to reading this very much.

Congrats on the achievement of getting it done!

I like the layout of your website. Very slick and professional. The excerpt is well done. It doesn't give anything away but still piques the interest. I will be purchasing a copy. Will there be an option for a signed copy?

Would I be able to purchase this on Kindle?

BTW, I was never able to pull up the links. Facebook probably because I donít have a FB account.

However, I always support SOCNET authors so when available I will definitely buy it.

I wrote a letter to the local newspaper. I used small words.
