What do all you adults think about books ( I mean real books, not picture books or other skimpy fifty-page easy reads) written by teens or preteens? Would you read them? Would you support them? Would you scoff? Would you criticize? I'd love to know!

Well, over the years there have been quite a few young people, at least as young as 13 and maybe even some younger, here on the board posting their writings. So, if the question is: Would we read stuff written by younger people here on this board?: Then, yes, because we have and have offered advice and critiques. If you mean: Would we go pick up a book and buy it if we knew that a younger person had written?: Then I would say, it's possible, just depends on what the book is about. I don't think I would be biased because a younger person had written it.
That's just what I think, though.

Okay...I'm not discouraged, I just want to know if I might be able to be popular with not only kids, but adults too. And Eragon is not a fair book to compare to. That writing was the most amazing new work I've ever read.
