Herman Melville’s Moby Dick:
“Our united opinion is entirely against the book. It is very long, and rather old-fashioned.”
F. Scott Gitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby:
“You’d have a decent book if you’d get rid of that Gatsby character.”
“I didn’t plan to start a new career when I did this, and it took a lot of courage to send out those query letters. I sent 15, and I got nine rejection letters, five no responses and one person who wanted to see me. If it’s something you enjoy, put the determination and will behind it and see what happens.”
More to Come!
