I want your opinion on Oral Histories

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.

Video Blogging and Heading to Fes

Tomorrow we head off to Fes for the start of our Pre-Service Training.  From there, I will head to the Atlas mountains to start working with children in a building called the Dalshabob.  It should be amazing.  I am having plenty of up days and couple down days.  It is all culminating on tomorrow when we meet our host family.  Once I get through tomorrow, I think my worries will start to wane.  I’ve been told I will live in a home  owned by a Moroccan solider with two adult sons.

Today I will be uploading one of my most popular pieces from when I was a teenager.  I called it Imminent Death.  I used people I know in short skit crazed situations.  This was a way I got in touch with the side of me I didn’t realize I had until my first really close friends brought it out of me.  Here is the first one.  It is very short.  I am having problems uploading the other nine.  I will try to upload more the next time I am on (I have no idea when that will be).
