This guy is the patron saint of rejection slips. RIP.
Dick Wimmer, whose first novel "Irish Wine" was finally published after more than 25 years of rejections, has died. He was 74.
Wimmer died of heart complications on Wednesday at his home in Agoura Hills, about 20 miles west of Los Angeles, his son, Geordie, told the Los Angeles Times.
Wimmer once claimed to be history's most-rejected published novelist. His book was turned down by publishers and agents 162 times.
"It's probably harder to get a novel published than to make a movie," Wimmer once said.
