What are the rules about creating a novel from a personal RPG?

So, a friend and I use to RP back in the day(10 years ago), using notes and blogs. I have turned the basic premise of this world and characters into a novel. Before writing, I contacted the friend(we don't speak much nowadays) and asked if she wanted any part of it, she said no, that she didn't have the time to co-author. There is no part of the previous material on the internet any longer, besides possibly those weird archive site-things. I continue to reach out to get their blessing and explicit approval but am ignored. What is proper in this situation? Should I give her some of the advance if it gets published? Mention them in the dedication? Not seek publication?
