When I tried to get an agent for The Guy'd Book, one of the superagents said she loved the book but couldn't see the audience. She said most agents won't consider a non-fiction humor book by someone who doesn't already have an audience (a comedian on television or established stand-up comic), and she encouraged me to turn to fiction.
So I wrote two fantasy humor books (The Adventures of Guy and its sequel THE NEXT ADVENTURES OF GUY). Each of these are adult humor, I thought, until I found out teens were reading them. So I wrote two YA humor/vampire/werewolf spoofs (Fang FaceE and WereWoof.)
But then it gets a bit weird. I wrote Bonk & Hedz ... a caveman ... and woman ... story thinking it was a YA humor with adult crossover potential, but all of my beta readers said it was actually adult due to the political humor in the book.
