Famous Author Rejection Letters: True Stories of Unbelievable Rejections

From Writer’s Relief:

The Most Rejected Novelist In History?

Author Dick Wimmer passed away on May 18, 2011, at 74 years old. He received 160+ rejections over 25 years! He spent a quarter of a century being told “no.”

He could have quit after 20 years, or 150 rejections, and no one would have blamed him. But he kept at it (maybe he had his own list of famous author rejection letters to keep him going!).

Every “no” brings you closer to a “yes”.
