If you're feeling down and out about a rejection letter ...
Writer's Digest
James Lee Burke published his first story when he was 19. It did not earn him instant fame. He worked the oil fields. He drove trucks. He taught. He'd sold a couple of books, but they never really broke out. And then he hit a mind-bending snag. He'd written a novel called "The Lost Get-Back Boogie." He submitted it.

Diminishing returns dawn for self-publishing?
TeleRead
