The difficulty in finding a Publisher to publish your book.
It has become increasingly difficult for writers to get their books published. As the cost of publication has increased Publishers have become increasingly selective of the type of book they publish and whose books they are willing to expend the cost of publishing on. More and more publishing houses are preferring to publish stories by established authors and celebrities whose names are known to the general public. They are more prepared to take a risk with a celebrity name than risk the cost of publishing a book by an unknown author.

Using the Razahpost system the risk of early rejection is lessened as the writer has received feedback throughout the early stages of production.
