De gustibus non disputandum est

by Michael

Anybody looking to feel better about rejection should take a look at this list of authors whose work was rejected (via Rejectionist, via Editorial Ass). The reality is that every published author has been rejected, usually many, many times. It goes with the territory.

I could bore you with all my thoughts on rejection, but the title really says it all: there’s no disputing taste.


  1. Thanks! I love collecting stats on authors who were rejected and then later found success, so this will be appreciated (even if I won't "feel better" because I haven't submitted anything to get rejected yet)!

  2. Ah, yes. The variety of taste - possibly the most simultaneously frustrating and hopeful aspect of this business.

    Thanks for sharing the link! :)

  3. Best part: Wind in The Willows = Irresponsible Holiday Story. Can you get a better rejection??

  4. I love what Judy Blume said about determination being as important as talent. Thanks for posting this!

  5. Maybe generic rejections aren't so bad.

  7. It is always encouraging to read these lists.

  8. I say many thanks to Mr. admin website I read this, because in this website I know a lot of information information that I did not know before his
