I was rejected 54 times with my first book. Know that rejections are part of the process and don’t let that discourage you. I remember walking in the mall one day and I had my outline with me. As I walked past a Barnes and Noble store, I decided I would go in and talk to someone. What was the worst thing that could happen? They could say No—and that’s not the end of the world.
I went back and they said the Children’s editor was at lunch—so I asked the person who was there to look at it and midway through she said, “Just a minute.” She went back and found the Children’s editor who looked at it for a bit before saying, “I want this book!” And that got me started in Barnes and Noble.
