What percentage of all books submitted actually get published?

I have been trying to get published, but all I get is rejections.

I think its a small number like 3 - 5%
even some if tbe great authors recieved piles of rejections befor hitting it big. you might look into smaller less known presses and epublishers. Ebooks are big and getting bigger.

Don't give up! Have a qualified literary agent read your material and ask for an honest opinion. They will let you know if you have a good publishable work or not.

About 0.03% of all manuscripts submitted in the publishing industry in the US each year actually get published. This means that out of every 10,000 manuscripts submitted, only 3 are actually published.
