Anyway it's pretty cool that you wrote a novel, OP. You could try to get someone else to help you edit it if you can't bring it upon yourself. I'm no novelist but I might be able to help you a bit. A professional editor would probably be more useful, though.
I'll answer one of your questions:>What is a happy memory you have with your dad?
When we were kids my brothers and I used to go to flea markets with my dad often, and they were pretty fun. Sometimes he'd drag us out to go to them when we didn't want to but we usually found some cool toys there for a good price.
