Goodreads asked Janice Hilbish:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Janice Hilbish Be passionate about writing; unless you are it can be a difficult and unrewarding process. Be realistic. Don’t begin writing for the wrong reasons. If you’re writing just to become wealthy and renowned, you will most likely be disappointed. But if you are writing because you have a message and are passionate enough to reach the heart of your reader with that message, your book will get into the hands of those who are meant to read it. Lastly, be patient. It takes time and a lot of hard work to get your book the attention it deserves.
