Hi All. Does anybody know of a literary agent or publishing house willing to get behind a novel that spotlights the psychic damage that religion can inflict and then ever so gently and respectfully follows one character's journey to atheism?
There is a character/catalyst in this novel who is both gay and fundamentalist Christian - which two realities cannot reconcile with each other, leading the character to suffer Dissociative Personality Disorder (split personality). Other characters take center stage after this first one sets them in motion but then the novel ends with his emotional journey to atheism and self-acceptence.
I'm having a tough time finding representation - an agent who will take it on. Does anybody have any ideas?
