YA beta-readers needed

I’m looking for a few guys in the 12-18 age range to be beta-readers for my new book. It’s basically done, but I can always use more input. If you are (or know) a YA male who is looking for a story about a young man doing adventurous things without a lot of angsty naval-gazing or silly romance garbage, but with more independent / libertarian themes than most current offerings, head on over to The Stars Came Back for details.

  1. I’d sign my nephew up for this except, in the words of General Faversham in “The Four Feathers”, I’m too old and the boy’s too young.

    • The language is clean, no sex or nudity, not much violence, language is simple. The target market is 12-18, but there isn’t anything there that is grossly inappropriate for a somewhat younger reader if they like ideas, not just action. I’m likely going to let my 9 YO read it soon, FWIW.
      The ideas might well appeal to an older reader, too.
      YMMV and all that.

      Most of us were.
      But I’d like to see how an actual current 12-18 year old human bean would like it. I know I like it, and I’m a tad past 18 these days, but my life experience isn’t what theirs is.

  2. Give it a spin on Ace’s Sunday Morning Book Thread. I’ve seen other authors make a similar call from time to time, and they later report good feedback.
