Goodreads asked Sierra Donovan:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Sierra Donovan Don't expect to be brilliant right away. (This was hard for me to accept.) Learn your craft. Pay attention to that pesky punctuation and grammar -- flaws will pull readers out of your story. Revise! But don't revise forever. Get your story as good as you can make it. Then move on to the next one.

And DON'T believe the rumor that publishers aren't buying books from new authors anymore. It still happens!
