As a writer, you should write about what you know.

I know...rejection.

I thought a book like this would practically write itself...and it has!

When I tackled the idea for this project, I expected my usual "bumper crop" of rejection slips. I wasn't disappointed. Out of the "slushpile" I've selected a representative sampling of the best, and the worst, of the many rejections I've received.

My gratitude is extended to the dozens of people who made this book possible:

The Editors.

Thank you for turning it down.

My thanks also go to PUBLISHER OF THIS BOOK for accepting the impossible.
