Rex Pickett's SIDEWAYS was rejected 70-80 times



A bunch of my "successful writers who got rejected" posts got trashed during the Big Move After Being Hacked some years ago, but I'm starting up the series again. I'll be reposting some old rejection stories as well as new ones. 

Rex Pickett's SIDEWAYS was rejected 70-80 times before finally being accepted. The book was later adapted into an Academy Award-winning film.

You can hear an interview with Rex on OterhPeoplePod.com.
