So I read a new story to my 4 year old last night. He sat quietly and listened. At the end I asked "Did you like it?" He shook his head. Tonight I tried to read it again, but before page one he declined.
He is my most severe critic, so the question is "To publish, or not to publish?" It was going to be book number four - maybe I need more research. If you'd like to volunteer let me know and I'll email you a PDF.
Maybe I should give away the stories that don't make it to publication. I mean, who's going to complain about free?
That said, I once tried a Coke Zero that was being given away. I could tell (taste) why.
