Goodreads asked Julie Coulter Bellon:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Julie Coulter Bellon Never give up! I firmly believe that the only difference between a published author and someone who is unpublished is that one gave up and the other didn't. After my first book was rejected by several publishing houses, I put it under my bed and didn't look at it for a year. With some encouragement from friends and family I took it out again, made some revisions and submitted it. I got two offers! And realized I'd wasted an entire year by giving up. So, learn from my mistakes and never give up!
