I know of a writer who had several books trad published, including one that was shortlisted for the Orange Prize... A few years ago no publisher wanted her new book because IIRC she was told something along the line of "although beautifully written, it isn't in genre and can't be marketed easily, and is too harsh for the modern reader". Mainly they don't like the fact that she writes what she wants to rather than what she's told to.
With other people she then started a (very) small publishing thing - they broke even within the first year.
