Young Readers (Ages 10-14)

Starting at $2,689

Getting a book published can be a very intimidating task for an author. Nowadays, so many options exist that all the information is simply overwhelming at first. I was very lucky to have the FriesenPress team answering my questions and providing me with guidance when needed. I enjoyed my experience working with FriesenPress and cannot recommend their services enough.

- Yves Robichaud, author of YA novel Kaylen's Rising 

Children ages 10-14 have been reading independently for most of their lives and their tastes, by this point, are increasingly well-defined. Readers in this age range are always on the lookout for challenging and relatable literature to whet their voracious, book-devouring appetites. You can expect the word count of a Young Readers book easily dwarf that of an Early Reader title, with illustrations implemented more sparingly throughout the text.

We'll help you develop the tone and tempo perfectly suited to your story's particular genre and target age group, all professionally printed and bound in a beautiful book.
