I am currently figuring out what kind of novel I should write while in the Peace Corps. This will be my fifth one. The thing is, I found a niche for myself with my previous novel–The Stagner Chronicle. I am thinking about exploring this realm/genre of oral histories even further. It worked well with a dystopian novel. Now I’m starting to wonder–would it work with literary fiction? How about science fiction? Comedy? I have a few ideas up my sleeve, but I want to hear from my readers. Are you guys interested in reading Oral History-style books like World War Z and Rant?
I’m falling in love with genre. It allows the story to be a character. Since the players in the story are the narrators, it pulls you in. It makes you decide what really happened. There is no black and white when it comes to an Oral History. That’s why I love it. Now I want to do know if you guys feel the same. If you haven’t read one, feel free to grab a free download of my last novel–The Stagner Chronicle–Here.
