The novel I am currently trying to write has something of a "lefty-liberal" political slant to it. The protagonist of the story is a lefty-liberal character, who is trapped in a not-so-lefty-liberal story world/environment. Register to remove this ad Could the politics of my novel undermine its chances of being published? Are there publishers with a right-wing political bent, who'd dismiss a novel from the outset, because of its left-ish politics? Do publishers have such a thing as "political preferences" they look for in a novel? (Of course they won't have something like that "officially", but I'm talking about the "real world" of publishing here)?
