I firmly believe an editor will jump at the chance to publish a great story. If he has to shave off some parts, so be it.Since last year and I'm sure long before that Christian writers, particularly fiction writers have questioned the relevance of the genre. Publishing industry peer pressure? I'm not sure. But the past month I've been questioning my role in this genre. Am I relevant? Am I the right person for it?

Yesterday I posted about my starving Christian artist struggles. Every day I think this may the day I throw in the towel and focus on a form of writing more lucrative. Yes. There are more than a handful of Christian fiction writers making a nice living. Truthfully, we're not supposed to be writing for the almighty dollar, but our Almighty God. Yet, gas prices are up, milk cost more than chicken and who wants to write a novel with no hopes of more than a handful of people reading it?
Why are people reading Christian fiction? Do they think those are the books Jesus would read? really? If not, what kind of books is Christ reading right now? Are you writing that kind of story? Tell me.
