Goodreads asked Ronald H. Balson:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Ronald H. Balson Perseverance. If you have a story inside, keep going. I was rejected dozens of times, by agents and publishing companies, so I decided to self-publish. After success with the self-published work, Once We Were Brothers was accepted by a commercial publisher. It can be very frustrating, but don't give up.
