I’m a regular reader of David Anthony Durham’s blog, and a recent post of his discusses his experience with breaking into the publishing industry. David is a good writer. I’m currently half-way through his latest novel Acacia and am enjoying it. It’s always interesting to hear advice from authors who have been there, to give us non-published authors a bit of perspective and encouragement. I found his post especially interesting because he scanned in some of the rejection letters he received early in his career. He, like everyone else, went through the stages of disappointment and rejection, but in the end, it all makes us stronger writers. Remain dedicated and determined, and you will succeed.
