Rejection stinks worse then a cow in the summer. But, just like cow funk, they’re out there. Don’t be deterred! Stay strong. In fact, these authors were rejected by publishers. To bad for them…the publishers I mean…
Jules Verne’s rejection for his Paris in the Twentieth Century:
“…If you were to reread it one year from now, you would surely agree with me. It is tabloidish, and the topic is ill-chosen.
I was not expecting perfection–to repeat, I knew that you were attempting the impossible–but I was hoping for something better.”
Stephen King’s Carrie:
“We are not interested in science fiction which deals with negative utopias. They do not sell.”
William Golding’s Lord of Flies:
“…an absurd and uninteresting fantasy which was rubbish and dull.”
More to come!
