      I’m hoping that they won’t actually read the whole book. I mean, they might not, right? They’re the only two readers that I don’t want to finish it.

        And yet they have so many good and noble reasons to plow through even if they don’t like it… I still can’t believe my father read the drecktastic 135,000 word epic fantasy novel I wrote when I was nineteen. And then commented, in a somewhat baffled fashion, “Er… it’s a bit bloody, isn’t it?” (Piles of murdered unicorns. I kid you not.)

        Nice icon, by the way.

    maybe you could use lulu.com or another POD service to create a Very Special Edition just for them? In fact, I believe someone needs to start a business for this exact purpose, saving authors everywhere from the horror of their parents reading things they should never ever see.

    This is precisely why I look at my seldom updated ficblog and pray that my mother never gets bored enough to see what all is on my domain.
