Goodreads asked Lamont Tanksley:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Lamont Tanksley Write!! Polluting white pages with black ink is a wonderful thing. There are too many opportunities to go from aspiring writer to actual writer to not give it a go.

I started out assuming, why not, just for the hell of it, write a book and pay to have at least one copy for me and each of my family members. Then the requests for another copy, another copy, another story, and why aren't you continuing this story, started rolling in.
