Maybe this time don’t order the usual

Working in a publishing house has given me opportunities to read books that I wouldn’t normally have sought out for my own personal enjoyment. For years my go-to preference has been YA books with strong female leads. When people would tell me to read a book from some other genre I’d often kindly tell them, “Those kinds of books aren’t my cup of tea.”

I’m starting to realize what a foolish response that was. Like a child who refuses to try any food that’s green, I’d been eating up the same style of books for years because I couldn’t be sure other books would entertain me the way YA books did.

I’ve now read so many different styles, even a Sci-fi that I absolutely loved. Gasp! How is that possible? But it’s true. And if I could boldly offer you some advice, you should do the same. I hope this Christmas season you’ll take the opportunity to pick up a genre totally different from your usual. I also hope you’ll do those many not-so-well-known authors out there a solid. E-books aren’t all that expensive. It won’t hurt your pocketbook that much to give one of the little guys a try. I know from experience they’ll appreciate far more than words can express.

If you haven’t discovered my books you can find my complete young adult series through the link below.
