So You Want to Get Published… Nothing wrong with that! You feel you have something valuable to share with the world, you carry an important message. If you want to convey your message by mean of a book, you need to believe in your work.
You need to believe in yourself!
Barbara Kingsolver, Best-seller author of The Poisonwood Bible, said, “This manuscript of yours that has just come back from another editor is a precious package. Don’t consider it rejected. Consider that you’ve addressed it “to the editor who can appreciate my work” and it has simply come back stamped “not at this address.” Just keep looking for the right address.”
You have to handle rejections.
One of the best sellers, Chicken Soup for the Soul, has a story behind it. Mark Victor Hansen and Jack Canfield had a great idea: collecting writings form people who have lived a great experience. THey went to New York with an agent, and met with major publishers. They answered, “Collections of short stories don’t sell ; this title will never work.” Even their agent, after being rejected 30 times, told them, “Sorry. I cannot sell it for you.” Did they give up? No! They finally arrived to a struggling publisher. He read the manuscript, and… agreed to publish it! after over 130 rejections, their first book sold 8 million copies, went on to a series of 80 books, and were translated in 39 languages!
So… did they give up? No!
Your success is in You. Believe! Do Not give up! Persist, persevere, go on, continue, follow your gut feelings!
Success, Abundance, and Happiness to You!
