Goodreads asked Yani:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Yani My advices to aspiring writers is to be as original as possible, research marketing and promotions and do not rely entirely on social networking and word of mouth. Writing the book is the easy part. Marketing it and promoting it takes a lot of work, research and patience. Also, be very sure that your novel is fully edited. A book that has been poorly edited can be a major turn off no matter how good the story is.
