Do you want to write a novel? Do you have a story you want to tell, but you don't know where to begin? Do you want to stop saying, "I'm going to write a novel" and start saying, "I wrote a novel?" Can you imagine yourself five months from now with a complete draft of your novel?

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 five months, you'll have a complete draft of a novel. Not just a few random chapters or the seed of an idea, but an ACTUAL DRAFT OF YOUR 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:

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, and more.

With the Novel Writing Master Class bundle, you get all four courses for just $249.

You will work through all four courses at your own pace. Weekly assignments will help you get the words on the page, and discussion boards will help you feel supported and stay inspired.

What Students Are Saying

"The Novel Writing Master Class is a must have for any storyteller who wants to understand the components of a good story and, most important, how to combine those ingredients to create a book people would love to read...

This course helped me to understand better how to approach the big and scary task of writing a novel. I've finally understood how crucial is to have an ironclad first chapter and I must admit that after listening to the lesson about the importance of the first paragraphs, I went back to my story and re-wrote the beginning a few times. I've also learned how to characterize people and places in a manner that intensifies the narrative instead of weakening it with back-story or idle descriptions."

-Eugen Hoble

"I needed those eight weeks with Michelle. I needed the kick in the pants, because my writer’s block was becoming a nuisance. I needed the camaraderie of other writers, to get out of my little cave. I needed to hear encouraging words from strangers regarding what I was doing." -Joanne Huspek

"Yes, I'd recommend this class, because Michelle gives such prompt and helpful feedback."

-Peter Coughlan

"I was amazed at the amount of material Michelle shared with us. She was extremely generous in finding relevant material online, in articles, and excerpts from books that were very helpful. She was highly organized."

- Beverly

"I can wholeheartedly recommend the Master Class Series on Novel Writing. The organization of the material is logical and easy to follow. The combination of Michelle's videos followed by a written lecture is incredibly helpful and reinforces the material she covered in her videos. Additionally, you can take your time. Michelle gives you lots of real world examples and links to books that illustrate her points. The presence of Michelle is very comforting, she is very affable and conveys a true sense of someone who is very knowledgeable and genuinely open to support you and answer any question you may have.

Michelle is a legitimate novelist who happens to teach. A win win for us. She has been where we are and knows how to proceed...I have asked for clarification on a few occasions and Michelle has been prompt, with a response and very compassionate and supportive. The final note worth mentioning is that I feel energised and empowered, imbued with confidence which I was devoid of before I started. If you have a novel within you and you don't know how to proceed, this is the course for you."
