Famous Rejections

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!
