In this article Emily Temple, a senior editor at Lit Hub, offers some unique inspiration to help her fellow authors. She has posted a list of the Most-Rejected Books of All Time (Of the Ones That Were Eventually Published) that she hopes will encourage authors “to keep on writing and submitting.” Names like Samuel Beckett, Elmore Lenard, James Lee Burke, James Patterson, John Grisham, Stephen King and Dr. Seuss all make an appearance on the list.
