JK Rowling: My snubs from publishers
Harry Potter author JK Rowling has shared two rejection letters she received from publishers while writing under her pen name Robert Galbraith.
The famous author posted them on Twitter while giving encouragement to other hopeful writers.
The letters are in relation to her novel The Cuckoo's Calling.
Responding to a fan's request for a picture of a rejection letter she explained: "The Potter ones are now in a box in my attic, but I could show you @RGalbraith's?"
The author was quick to point out she had removed the signatures from the letters because she was posting them "for inspiration, not revenge". One of the letters, from Creme de la Crime publishers, explains that they are "unable to accept new submissions".
