My late husband loved your writing. He would hate what you have become. Hang on to your royalties. “On those cold winter nights you can cuddle up to your cash register, it’s a little bumpy but it sounds,” as Dolly Levi once said.

The main character of your opus is rich with a poor best friend whom he chooses not to help.
Which makes a lot of sense in retrospect.
