Overcoming Rejection with Bestseller T.J. Newman
Bestseller T.J. Newman has proven that you can write in any situation given enough dedication. Not only did she write her debut novel, Falling, on a notepad while working long hours as a flight attendant, but also pushed through over forty rejections before landing a publishing deal. Falling, Newman’s first and only novel about a perilous mid-flight decision, has won critical acclaim from the likes of James Patterson and Lee Child for its suspense and original plot. To order Falling, which hits shelves tomorrow, follow the link below.
T.J. Newman, a former bookseller turned flight attendant, worked for Virgin America and Alaska Airlines from 2011 to 2021. She wrote much of Falling on cross-country red-eye flights while her passengers were asleep. She lives in Phoenix, Arizona.
