Seeking a few more beta-readers…

Last spring, a number of you generously offered to read a draft of my novel. Your feedback helped tremendously. I’ve done a lot of revising over the last few months, and I would love to get more feedback on what is working and what is not. If you’re interested in being a beta-reader, please let me know: lvanderkam at yahoo dot com.

Here’s a very brief summary of the novel: A small town high school basketball team wins the Pennsylvania state championship with an improbable last second three point shot. The story revisits the characters 10 and 20 years later as the ramifications of their youthful success play out over the course of their lives, forever linking them and the people around them to this little town that has its ways of not quite letting you go. Whether that’s a good or bad thing is, of course, one of the major questions of the story.

Thanks so much for considering it. I am incredibly grateful to have readers who are helping me make this book as good as it can be.

    another comment about your other story

    take the issues that the society or the gov is failing at (for example affordable housing) and ask the upwardly mobile to help fix them and tax incentivize them to do that … so let people say buy a property as tax shelter as long as they use it to provide affordable housing.. doesn’t this seem like a bipartisan way to get to win-win… so the more successful get the tax writeoff, and also get to feel less “guilty” and shunned by the unequal society for success which should be rewarded right ? — and the folks who need help and the society to be more egalitarian get that… I think your last post was actually pretty provocative and would like to see more about this topic
