    beta-reader

    From Wikipedia: “A Beta Reader is a non-professional reader who reads a written work, generally fiction, with the intent of looking over the material to find and improve elements before the story is released for public consumption.”

    I need a few (4-7) families with a kid or kids (8-12) who would be interested in reading Bad Hero and taking notes.

    Naturally parents are encouraged to read the book as well and feedback is encouraged and welcome.

    The children need to be between 8 and 12 years old. They must be able to read the book without assistance, and (the most important part) take notes while reading and possibly complete a questionnaire after.

    I’ll be looking for feedback on things like plot holes, problems with continuity, characterisation or believability.

    Bad Hero is easier to read than Harry Potter but a little more complex than Diary of a Wimpy Kid.

    Subject: Bad Hero Preview
    Include how your family qualifies.
    I will follow up with specifics once we’re ready.

    I’ll post again when the slots are filled. Thanks!
