Hi Domino G! I've put two adventure stories for 10-14 year olds on Kindle recently. In the Land of the Demon Masters and Bugtown. I know they're good stories since I tested them on a lot of 12 year olds when I worked as a school librarian. The former has started selling since I told the Free Tibet folk about it, but neither of them have had a review from the right age group, though Bugtown got a great one from someone who has set up a webpage to advertise sci-fi and fantasy books. Wait a minute! My ten books are on Kindle and you might have published a paper book. Despite having two novels published by three publishers and eight plays produced by the likes of Radio 4 and the World Service, I couldn't get more than one agent to look at my 10-14 years books despite emailing for nearly two years. This story is contained in a comic novel about working as a school librarian in a bog standard Edinburgh comprehensive, TheBlissBook. Though my ten kindle books are selling in dribs and drabs, I discovered that I'd need to go to and join in threads there to reach an American audience. There will be more young folk there and you might have better luck. I'm going to buy something from today and start doing that. Best of luck anyway. John McKenzie

I published my first novel in Oct 2011. The reviews have all been positive on Goodreads and Amazon, though all from adults. I would love to hear from my intended audience, ages 8 -12.

Twin Spirit (Domino Galaxy, Book 1)
