Goodreads asked J. Asmara:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

J. Asmara Just do it. Do not let fear stop you. Even if you do not sell one book, writing a book is a huge accomplishment in itself. It takes a special type of person to dedicate that type of time and effort to something and then put themself in a vulnerable state by sharing their thoughts with the world. Lastly, have thick skin. Not everyone will understand or like everything you write, but it's ok because it yours.
