A Goodreads user asked P.I. Alltraine:

What would be your advice be for young teens (like myself) that want to become published?

P.I. Alltraine Hi Alice, thank you for your question. First, read as much as you can, and then write for yourself. It doesn’t matter if your style doesn’t fit in with the current trend. Write because you want to, about something you enjoy. When you have a completed piece, redraft it, edit it... and edit it some more. When you think it's ready, you can do some research and submit it to agents/publishers who might be interested in your genre. Best of luck on your writing journey! :)
