Goodreads asked Joanna Sims:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Joanna Sims Know the line you're targeting, and write what the readers want. Find out what the editors are looking for, what they feel is trending in their line, keep writing and don't give up! My first manuscript was rejected and it hurt. But, I found out what the editor for Special Edition wanted by listening to a podcast, wrote a book with those elements, and it sold! That book was the first Brand family book, A Baby for Christmas!
