    RK Rowling
    Her book book was submitted to twelve publishing houses, all of which rejected her now famous series.

    Do all writers struggle with rejection?

      Of course we do. I have a scrapbook full of them, but I quit collecting them a long time ago. I take them with me for "show and tell" whenever I do workshops and school author visits.

    yes! I'm still dealing with it. I think the only way to get published is to befriend Oprah!!smile

    there are so many wanna be writers out there. and so many publications who just do not want to pay out.  It is a difficult world alright.

    We just need better stuff available to us on the internet. That means for readers and for writers. Hopefully people are working hard on it, because I certainly am.

    You can consider self-publishing your item. I believe ClickBank will sell e-books, but if your wish to make hard copies, that could be a large materials cost. In addition, marketing them takes a plan or Web site or a paid marketing person.

    Rejection and failure is the norm. This pretty much applies to all endeavours. All one can do is keep plodding along.
