If you’d like a sneak peek

As one of my regular blog readers, you know I enjoy giving you unique opportunities to read and try out resources before they’re even finished, chiming in with your opinion. This month I have one of those opportunities.

At the end of this month I’ll turn in a finished manuscript to my publisher—my newest book-in-process—The Teens Guide to Social Media and Mobile Devices. This is the first time I’m even releasing this title (it comes out later this year).

Here’s where you come in. I’m looking for about 30 parents and/or youth workers who would like to “test drive” this book-in-process with their teens or tweens. Basically, I’d send you about 2/3rds of the book this week in PDF form, and you’d have just under two weeks to…

  • Read as many chapters as you want
  • Print out a hard copy and give it to a(some) kid(s) to read a few chapters
  • Sit down with the kid and try out the end-of-chapter discussion Q’s with them

Then I’d give you a free copy of the book when it’s released. (Funny timing, I am mailing out about 30 copies of my brand new parenting book this week.)

If you’ve got the time to do this in the next couple weeks, then email me personally at jon@thesource4ym.com or hit reply to this blog if you receive it as an email. I’d love to give you a peek.
