Never give up! I threw away so many manuscripts that I felt was crap. It wasn't until I read some New York bestsellers that I thought were ... well, less than awesome, that I thought "Hmm... I might as well get my stuff out there. Sure some will hate it, maybe a lot of people, but what makes it all worth it, are those few people that are so excited and can't wait to read your next book." And I think of all the rejections that some of the most famous authors have gotten.
