When I've told others that I've written a book they act really impressed, like it is a huge feat. But the way I see it is anyone could write a book...it doesn't mean it'll be any good. My book is pretty good. Not great, but pretty darn good. But "good" doesn't get published.
After I'd made the facebook announcement, three people asked to read it and give feedback. I was, and still am, ecstatic! Two were friends and one was my cousin, who has actually written a book herself and is working on another. She sent the first chapter back with AWESOME feedback! She's been to two writer's conferences and it shows she learned something. :) Another friend has been published and writes for a journal. The third friend is in the process of writing the story of her life. I'm so, so excited to get feedback from these ladies!!
And not to mention my sister-in-law who is reading it right now. :D She's very observant so I know I'll get good feedback from her.
