I think the line that stuck out most to me last night (besides Stephanie Perkins saying that she had John Lennon's imaginary baby when she was in high school) was Beth Revis telling us a story about receiving a query rejection on the same day she hit the New York Times Bestseller List. Wow. She also wrote ten manuscripts before selling the first of this series, ACROSS THE UNIVERSE. So, wherever you are in the publication process, take heart, you are not alone in the struggle.
