Ok maybe this is just a vent but also asking advice. I have been writing a fiction novel based on the struggles our country (South Africa) went through. I know it might be controversial but it has a real look at love back then. I have completed only the first 3 chapters (11000 words). Is that sufficient number of words for 3 chapters? I send this with the synopsis to several (7) publishers. I got rejected by all. The comments ranged from we are not only publishing a few fiction books a year and the writers are very good to 'oh your writing style is perfect but the subject might not make us enough money'. Now my dilemma is that I have tried writing 2 new novels after this rejection but i still believe this book is a winner. Do I continue writing this initial book or do i write something more lighthearted, easy reading kind of book. I would appreciate any contribution to ease the confusion.
