Authors discovered via the slush pile include Roddy Doyle, J.K. Rowling and Philip Roth. Stephanie Meyer sent 15 query letters about her teenage-vampire saga and got nearly 10 rejection letters; one even arrived after she signed with an agent and received a three-book deal from Little, Brown. Kathryn Stockett's The Help was turned down 60
