I often wonder why some authors get published and most do not. I don't think it's because there are so many bad writers out there, it seem the competition is huge and only a little room at the top and the ones who made it are vying to stay there. What's the trick to breaking out from the pack and getting noticed? I hope it isn't sitting at a card table at the mall begging people to buy my books. I know most authors get a lot of rejections before they ever make it, and why they keep trying is beyond me, but there must be a reason why Stephen King and the rest of the big guns are where they are. If you've made it, please tell me how you did it. Thanks.
