Did you know that more than 50,000 manuscripts are written each year and only about 5% of those manuscripts are published.
Does this mean that the other 95% are not worth publishing? Of course not.
New and emerging authors have always had difficulty getting their manuscripts published. These days, even large publishers are reducing the ranks of their author stables, and established authors are looking for alternative publishing options.

Those books you see stacked at the entrance of a bookstore is the publishers way to manipulate the reading public. Many of those will be returned to the publisher. Are you impressed upon seeing the statement "over 1,000,000 in print?" Don't be, most of those books will have the covers torn off and the remainder shreaded to become recycled into pulp.
