Again I want to say what a nice guy this friend is. That's what makes this tough, because I honor his opinion. Having said that, I honor Molly's opinion greatly. She is a beautiful writer and I feel like we are kindred spirits. I was hesitant about writing this because I didn't want to have any doubts in that area. I am very honored to have her read the book. I wanted to ask Cro too, but I had a feeling he would have said, "You won't make any money off the book if you let all yer friends read it!" Haha. Tom would have said that as well.
Anyway, so here's what I'm asking: do I honor this friend's opinion and put my book away again, or do I release it out to the world? I was going to try small publishers. Any advice is appreciated.
