Julie asked Colleen Hoover:

I just stumbled upon Maybe Someday and your goodgreads page. Cannot wait to dive into this book. What advice do you have for someone drafting their first ya novel? Thanks Colleen.

Colleen Hoover I think what helps me the most is to ignore trends and avoid what is popular. I write the story I want to write and if it resonates with readers, that's a good thing. I think a lot of readers can tell when an author is following a trend, just trying to make a quick buck, so make sure your story is coming from the heart.
