I asked about the following situation on another forum:
I have a new book coming out soon.
I wrote it before I converted to the Church; although, when I wrote it, I was still searching for God. I had just left the Baptist denomination.
Nevertheless, cusswords abound, as I was a younger fellow in those days. The story takes the tone of Catcher in the Rye, and ends rather like a Flannery O’Connor story.
At the time, I considered it to be a Christian work, though I would not write a story like it today. At least, not in that fashion. If it is one major beef I have with it, it is the cuss words. I use plenty. While one may consider removing them, I did not because they characterize the protagonist.
In any event, it will be available soon, and I was wondering about your thoughts on a book styled like that.
