This is a sad story, especially when you think of all those authors out there on "the grind" experiencing one rejection after another while hoping that some publisher somewhere will find their book "acceptable" for publishing. One can only guess whether within this group of writers there are some susceptible individuals that will consider taking their own lives during a bout of depression. Is there anything that can be done for them?
Yes there is! Now there is a great way to get your book out to millions of readers! It's called self-publishing. Yes that's right, no need to kill yourself over being rejected by a publisher. You probably won't win any Pulitzer prizes (and what is the point of winning one if you are dead anyway) but you will certainly earn enough money to buy a realistic replica of one to hang over your fireplace, which as far as I am concerned is just as good!
