On average, how many rejections do you face when trying to publish a book?
A lot. ;) No, but really, it all just depends. It's different for everyone. First there is rejections when searching for an agent. I probably sent out 75 emails and most of those came back as rejections. And then your agent will send out emails to editors in the next stage and I got a lot of rejections there as well. But you only need one yes! And it's worth it.
