jessie-newspaper

There is nothing quite like the stomach-churning excitement you get when receiving a reply letter from a publisher for a book you have submitted. More often than not, this excitement is replaced with a heavy and disheartening feeling as you discover that it is a rejection letter. They say failing is the best way to learn but some situations are easier to get over than others. Here are six tips to getting yourself back on track and ready to take on another day after publisher rejection.
1. Self-esteem: It is perfectly okay to grieve the idea that this publisher was the one that would take your work to market. But once that grieving time is over, stop thinking about it.

What Inspired “My Baby Rhinos”

My baby rhino post

What inspired the writing of My Baby Rhinos, The Story of Kelsey’s African Adventure!

 

“We’re going to Africa!” my mom exclaimed one morning after finishing the book The Elephant Whisperer about the personal relationship that grew between an amazing man, Lawrence Anthony, and a herd of wild elephants he saved at his private game reserve, “Thula Thula.” A few months later we were there, dining under the stars and it was our experience with two orphaned rhinos that night that led me on a path I never could have imagined.

 

To be a part of the legacy of animal conservation created by Lawrence Anthony and carried on by his wife, Francoise Malby Anthony, is such an honor and if I can spread awareness through my story and inspire others to do the same, then I will have made a difference.
