I have been on this forum for a few years now, i wanted to have inspiration and talk to like minded people. However sometimes i do feel like this forum brings me down a little, as it seems like most posters will say unless you have the most amazing storey that is polished to the finest finish you haven't got a chance in hell of ever getting published. Now i get that this is excellent advise in the sense that you need to make your work the best that it can possible be. Yet there are many books that have been published that most on this forum will say is awful writing but they have been published. So how do bad books get published?? how do they slip through the net of all the people that have crafted their writing to be the finest yet they don't get published.
