This is the predicament I'm in right now. My family and friends know I've been pouring my heart and soul into this novel, and they've been asking to see excerpts. Only the problem is this: My novel is a lesbian romance and said family and friends are HIGHLY intolerant religious fundamentalists. What should I do? Just say "I don't think you'd like it" and let it be, or show them anyway and let the chips fall where they may?
