I've always been interested in many genres. My first book was a bisexual vampire erotica. It was a very tough decision whether to use the same pen name for my next book which is a psychological drama that deals with many socio-political issues. After it was published I thought that people who liked my first book might like the second. Boy was I wrong. Though, the people who did read the second book gave me great reviews, it has been very difficult finding people who are interested in that genre who wouldn't judge me by the first book. Any advice?

This is my first published childrens book available on Amazon in paperback and Kindle @ $2.99 and Barnes and Noble.  A short read, only 36 pages. I'm sure you will love it. At a affordable price! Enjoy!

But please do participate in "debriefing"  me about my blog talk radio interview with Sharon Ann Wikoff. Here is the link to the show: Creating Conscious Consensus with Darr... . In case the link isn't "live," here's the URL : http://www.blogtalkradio.com/voiceofchange/2012/02/03/creating-cons...

   Listen when you get the chance, then critique the strengths and weaknesses of my very first book interview. It's obvious that I am anything but a smooth talker or gifted orator, but I hope some potent ideas and heartfelt expressions occured during my talk on "spiritual consensus" or "creating conscious consensus."  The interview also gave me a venue to plug my book, Allsville Emerging: Creating and Experiencing a New Culture Together (www.allsvilleemerging.com  , http://sbpra.com/DarrellMoneyhon ). 

    Debrief me! (but please be kind!)

Hi RYCJ! Glad you found the group.

I too read a lot of different genres, but I have my top 4 or 5 that I gravitate to (Sci-Fi, paranormal, fantasy, and young adult) If you only read a certain type of book once or twice a year, you can count that. I have read memoirs, but not many nor frequently. Does that make sense?

I say this with wink, but are you extending 2010 into 09's November? lol? Since you are awesome, you can count them if you want in the genre challenge! ;)

However, to be eligible for the gift cards the books need to be reviewed on your blog. Cut and Pasting from Amazon, Goodreads, or the like is okay too! I'm trying to introduce different genres to people that may otherwise not pick one up. Posting on your blog helps introduce these books and genres to your readers.

Make sure you start your own thread in the discussion section above. When you blog about a book for the challenge link us up to the review in the thread you already started. That way all of the links and reviews are in one place. This will allow me to keep track of your entries for the prizes.

For the sake of simplification, if you blog and review a new genre you will be entered into the contest for the blog roll. After you reach 3 new genre blog posts, you will be eligible for the "more you try" giveaway. With each new genre you blog about, you will receive an additional entry for both after that.

Does that make sense?
