Another challenge appears to have been that non-Catholics assumed that my novel would be preachy or "overly" Catholic in nature. I don't believe it was, and that has never actually been acriticism that I have received from anyone. Catholicism deals, after all, with every aspect of what it means to be human. I don't think that a work can be a work of fiction can be too Catholic, but I certainly can see works being so preachy in tone that it distracts or annoys the reader.
