February 25, 2015 I won’t be reading my novel to my children. For a damn good reason. February 25, 2015/ matthew My son asked me to read my novel, Unexpectedly, Milo, to him. "Too long," I told him. "No pictures. Let’s find something else." It also has an awkward and explicit sex scene in it (which I didn't bother to mention), so I think he'll be reading that one on his own some day.
