This was honestly the toughest post to write for my blog ramble. I know good people who have made hard decisions and altered their work to make it more salable to one market or the other. I mean no disrespect to those who've done this. It's perfectly fair and reasonable to want a publisher's backing to get a book on the market.
And yet, my decision to self-publish has everything to do with this particular problem--the polarization of the markets. I know plenty of readers who are frustrated with the lack of reading material that takes faith seriously but doesn't sanitize real life problems.
The issue is a tough one for many considering what publishing path to take.
What do you think?
