My bff helped me edit it lightly and designed a character, but now she's asking for me to say she's an author too. I don't want to do that; I wrote the whole thing myself and my mother did more than her in the ways of helping. I tried to tell her once and she was all offended and angry and sad, and then I decided I would give in but now I think I can have a page at the end of the book listing people that helped me publish it and she could be in it and in the dedication. I'm not all greedy and want to keep credit to myself, it's just that I wrote the book. But I'm afraid that if I do that she will be really mad. I don't know what to do.

Wow. I think your BFF is seriously testing her luck here. Of course you don't have to put her name down as an author!! To AA's BFF: That's ridiculous, AA's BFF!
What you should do, is tell your friend kindly you didn't say she could put her name down as an author before she edited and designed a character. So, since you never agreed to that, you don't have to. It's your book: you wrote it. YOU wrote it. Tell her that.
If she doesn't understand the concept of YOU WRITING IT, then maybe you should tell your Mom to get into it. I bet she would settle it. And maybe your friend's Mom too. If your friend's Mom is reasonable (make sure she is before you get her into it *wink* ), then she will agree with you.

I hope that helped!! And good luck!! Tell me how it works out.

Give her credit... And if that's not enough for her, than I also think you should stand your ground, say thanks for the help, but I'm the main Author here. She did help you, but she didn't do it all, you did more. So, stand your ground.
