Do you want to write a novel? Are you having trouble getting started? Do you want to learn narrative craft and get your novel on the page?

Then the Novel Writing Master Class Series is for you.

If you're here, chances are you've been dreaming of writing a novel for quite some time. Maybe you've written a chapter or two, had a few false starts, made an outline, or abandoned your novel halfway through. Or maybe you haven't even started yet, because the idea seems too daunting.

If so, it's time to commit to your novel, invest in yourself, and enroll in the Novel Writing Master Class Series: Because the only person who can write your unique story is YOU.

IMAGINE THIS: In just a few months, you'll have a complete draft of a novel. You'll also learn the ins and outs of publishing in the digital age and take practical steps toward publication.

It can happen! You just need to take the leap, trust your vision, and get started. That's what the Novel Writing Master Class Series is all about.

When you enroll in the series, you'll get the following courses:

  • Novel Writing Master Class 1: Novel Beginnings, Character, Description, Point of View, & Suspense (5 modules - regularly $99)
  • Novel Writing Master Class 2: Dialogue, Structure, Theme, Novel Endings, & Revision (5 modules - regularly $99)
  • Novel Writing Master Class 3: Plotting the Novel (8 modules - regularly $149)


  • Novel Writing Master Class 4: Publishing Boot Camp (5 modules - regularly $99)

A comprehensive education in novel writing

The 23 comprehensive modules cover every aspect of novel writing. You'll learn how to write an unputdownable opening chapter, create compelling characters, structure and pace your novel, write authentic dialogue, create a dynamic story chart, write a final chapter that leaves your readers thinking (and talking) about your novel, and more.

In the popular 8-week course Plotting the Novel, you'll discover how to plot a novel that readers (and literary agents) can't put down.

Finally, in the Publishing Boot Camp, you'll learn how to talk the language of publishing. You'll learn about agents and editors and how to get them, how to choose between traditional and independent publishing and other outlets, how to increase your chances of publication, how to prepare your manuscript for publication, what you need to know about copyright, and more.

You will work at your own pace. Weekly assignments will help you get the words on the page, and discussion boards will help you stay inspired.

You will have access to all content for two full years from the date of enrollment. That includes video and written lectures, assignments, and discussion forums.
