And now, the results!

Hello darlings!

Just wanted to keep you updated with The Angellove Exercise

The winner is... Renee! Closely followed by our new friend LA Jones, who told us that Harry Potter was rejected "only" 20 times!

Yes, Stephen King's "Carrie" was rejected 30 times before it was published!

And now the bonus:

"If it hadn't been for Stephen King's wife, Tabitha, the iconic image of a young girl in a prom dress covered in pig's blood would not exist. King received 30 rejections for his story of a tormented girl with telekinetic powers, and then he threw it in the trash. Tabitha fished it out. King sent his story around again and, eventually, Carrie was published. The novel became a classic in the horror genre and has enjoyed film and TV adaptations as well. Sometimes all it takes is a little encouragement from someone who believes in you."

Isn't that a lovely moral?

Thank you and good Sunday! Next week we'll raise the stakes a little, so stay tuned!
