Sonny; hang your pink slips on the wall as proof of your efforts. They say that Papa Hemmingway, probably on his own, rewrote the last chapter of THE OLD MAN AND THE SEA 53 times. A published book author said about my proposed THE HOG RIDE AND OTHER DUMB STUMPS said, "They say collections don't usually do well but they told James Herriot that and you know how well his books did. He was the country vet who penned, ALL THINGS BRIGHT AND BEAUTIFUL; ALL CREATURES GREAT AND SMALL (The Lord God made them all.) HANG IN THERE. AND GOOD LUCK.
I was just guessing/joking about the 3 people. I have no idea how many rejections you have gotten, but was just making a joke by putting a tiny number of rejections. 3 or 30. You wrote a freakin book and that's more than a lot of us do. Have you tried a different way to write it? Perhaps making it rhyme for a children's book?
John Grisham’s first novel was rejected 28 times… You have 25 more attempts.;-)
You’re just getting started.
If this is your dream...never, ever give up.
Good luck to you. Keep submitting...the right literary agent is out there for you.
I think you should probably just give up. If 3 people say they don't like it, then you should believe them by now.
