From AuthorHouse tip of the day: “Perseverance pays off in the long-term. If your first book didn’t make it then you shouldn’t just quit. Keep going. Perhaps your second book will hit the mark.”

JK Rowling had been unemployed and almost penniless when she finished her Harry Potter manuscript in a modest cafe while grieving over her mother’s loss.

He even had to work meagre-paying, menial jobs to support his family and make ends meet. Learn from these literary geniuses and keep writing.
