J.K. Rowling is one of the most successful authors of all time, but her journey to fame was not an easy one. Before her first novel, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, was published, it was rejected by 12 different publishing houses.
The novel was first submitted to a publisher in 1995, but it was rejected. Rowling was determined to get her book published, so she kept submitting it to different publishers. After being rejected by 12 publishing houses, Rowling was close to giving up hope.
Fortunately, a copy of the novel was submitted to Bloomsbury Publishing and it was this submission that convinced them to offer J.K. Rowling her first contract. Bloomsbury took a chance on Rowling and it paid off. The novel was an instant success and the rest is history.
J.K. Rowling’s story is an inspiring one. It shows that even if you are rejected by many people, you should never give up on your dreams. It also shows the importance of persistence and determination. Rowling’s success is a testament to the power of believing in yourself and never giving up.
