Hey Beautiful Soul,

I worked late nights for 3 weeks composing my book proposal for a publishing company, at their request, after reaching out to me. They have passed on my upcoming 2 books. I was encouraged by a lot of amazing souls on social media and I want to thank each and every one of you for your endless support for my work. I have learned the following information:

Chicken Soup for the SoulJack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen: 144 rejections
The Help, Kathryn Stockett (yes, the award-winning movie was first a book): 60 rejections
CarrieStephen King: 30 rejections
The Thomas Berryman NumberJames Patterson: 31 rejections
A Time to KillJohn Grisham: 28 rejections
And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry StreetDr. Seuss: 23 rejections
A Wrinkle in Time, Madeleine L’Engle: 26 rejections
The Time Traveler’s Wife, Audrey Niffenegger: 25 rejections
The Diary of Anne Frank, Anne Frank: 15 rejections

You can view the full list here

And even J.K. Rowling, the author the Harry Potter series, was rejected 12 times before becoming a household name.


While it pains me these works were rejected so many times, it does give me hope . And I urge for it to give you hope, as well, with regards to anything and everything you are accomplishing in your life (because you ARE accomplishing them all).

I’m truly thankful for everyone’s support thus far for my first 2 best-selling books on Amazon. There is nothing wrong with self-publishing AT ALL. Jeff Bezos, the owner of Amazon, created a wonderful space for so many of us to express our souls and creativity. He makes it easier for us to have a chance at this wild game of publishing. Same with the people of AudibleApple Podcasts, etc. I received a pleasant surprise from the #1 NY TIMES best-seller, Gabby Bernstein, for her amazing supportive comment to me the other day!

And for this I am truly thankful.

I wanted to mix it up and go through a publisher because marketing books is extremely expensive. Plus, I’d like to have the help and support of professional companies. However, I’m not in any way ungrateful for Mr. Bezos paying a lot of my bills for me every year- and none of this would be possible if it weren’t for YOU.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, from the bottom of my heart and soul.

There’s no doubt that there will be many trials and tribulations along the way in taming space for the benefit of all, unmasking its truths and using the boundless resources available to us. Taking a chance allows us to seek new horizons and we all benefit from being horizon hunters. – Buzz Aldrin

Exactly, Buzz, to infinity AND beyond. This goes for YOU and ALL YOUR dreams and desires, too.

XOXO Jaclyn
