Until then, check out this video featuring famous rejected authors. I keep telling you that you’re not alone when it comes to having your manuscript rejected. One of the positives that writer’s have now is that option to self-publish to avoid publisher rejection. But! That doesn’t mean that you can just hurry up and write something and upload it to Amazon without having it edited, checked for continuity and at least pre-screened by potential readers. Self-publishing may help you avoid the rejection letters from publishers, but it won’t keep you from getting negative reviews by readers if you don’t polish your novel like a big-time publishing house would.
