Fifty Reasons

You've probably already read this one, but why not read it again.

On the Bookgasm blog:

Fifty Reasons Why Nobody Wants to Publish Your First Book

Here's some of the fun reasons out of the middle of the post. You should really want to go read the other 47 reasons.

20. You’re actually the 139th person to submit a conspiracy thriller
involving the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, entitled THE MICHAELANGELO
CIPHER.

21. And the 78th to submit a chick-lit manuscript about an attractive
woman’s sweet tooth and affection for footwear, called CHOCOLATE AND
SHOES.

22. You know the part where the protagonist stuffs those puppies into
the wood chipper? It’s not quite as funny as you seem to think.
