Plan & Write A Novel In 90 Days (Or Less...)

Learn How To Plan & Write Entertaining And Engaging Novels That Your Readers Will Love. From Scratch. Within 90 Days.


A comprehensive, 47-lesson course focused on giving you the skills, confidence and resources to write entertaining and engaging novels that are a perfect fit for your target readership. 

We built this course to address the questions and concerns that we hear most often, like:

  • Where do I get my inspiration and ideas from?
  • How do I map out and structure my novel?
  • How do I start writing the first chapter? 
  • How do I develop likeable characters?
  • How do I develop vibrant and fascinating settings that still sound authentic?
  • How do I keep my readers engaged—to keep them page-turning to the end of the book?

There is no shortage of books and courses out there about writing novels, but in our experience - the vast majority contain mere general advice, and aren't structured in a way which allows you to 'follow along' in a linear fashion.

The purpose of this course is to break down the huge challenge of writing a novel (from scratch) into bite-size portions, which you can study and undertake at your own pace.

We've created a step-by-step process for you to follow, which will enable you to start expertly planning and writing your best-selling novel today
