Advice for Aspiring Authors
"First and foremost, don't give up. This is a tough business and you will need confidence, stamina, discipline, and determination to be successful. Learn all you can about writing and the book world, and never rely on others to show you the ropes. Network as much as you can with meaningful face-to-face interactions. Social media is great, but nothing compares to the human element. And lastly, don't be afraid to try new things."
