In 1995, J.K Rowling’s Harry Potter series was rejected by a publisher when she sent in the first synopsis. This was a major setback for Rowling, who had spent six years writing the novel. However, her perseverance paid off and the book was eventually published in 1997.
The story of Harry Potter began in 1990 when Rowling was on a train from Manchester to London. She was stuck in a delayed train and had nothing to do, so she started writing the story of a young wizard named Harry Potter. After six years of writing, Rowling was finally ready to send her manuscript to a publisher.
However, the first publisher she sent it to rejected the manuscript. This was a major disappointment for Rowling, who had spent so much time and effort on the novel. Fortunately, the rejection did not stop her from trying to get her book published. She sent the manuscript to several other publishers and eventually, Bloomsbury Publishing agreed to publish the book.
The first book in the Harry Potter series, “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone,” was published in 1997. It was an instant success and Rowling’s books have since become some of the most popular books in the world. The series has sold over 500 million copies and has been translated into 79 languages.
The success of the Harry Potter series is a testament to Rowling’s perseverance and determination. Despite being rejected in 1995, she never gave up on her dream of getting her book published. Thanks to her hard work and dedication, the world now has one of the most beloved book series of all time.
