Foundation to Publishing

If you're really serious about writing, you need to know something about the secret language of fiction -how stories really work.

We're not talking about three act structures, or even particularly about 'writer's journeys' and all the other kinds of advice that you'll find out there. This is the physics that makes fiction work -the principles that lie behind almost all other advice you'll ever read about.

How powerful do your ideas have to be?

What makes characters attractive -and what doesn't?

How can you get emotional commitment from readers?

What drives plots forward and glues the reader to each page?

How can you make sure that you don't disappoint your readers?

Without confident answers to these questions, you have very little chance of attracting readers, let alone the attention of publishers. Everything in the Foundation to Publishing package is based on an extensive 40-year study of English literature and popular fiction, ranging from Shakespeare to contemporary movies like 'Star Wars' or the Marvel superhero films.

With the Foundation to Publishing Package, you'll receive a tailor-made, comprehensive programme of help for your fiction including

An Ideas Workshop

Character Construction

Attracting Readers

Emotional Commitment

Plot Structuring

Quality of Style

Fulfilling Expectations

How Foundation to Publishing Works

1. First, get the comprehensive multi-page Free Fiction Self-Assessment Questionnaire and fill it in, taking time to answer each question carefully. The Foundation to Publishing Package is costing you money and you need to make sure that you are satisfied with the free questionnaire before spend anything more!

2. Once you are happy with the Questionnaire feedback, click the 'Buy Now' button on this page and use PayPal to pay your £395.

3. Receive your package of materials, tailor-made to fit your fiction.

All Fiction Self-Assessment Questionnaires are looked at 'live' using over 40 years of experience in studying fiction of all kinds -there is no algorithm that can provide you with the individual assessment of your writing that you need.

You will get a report which includes how to use your ideas, how to develop your characters, how to attract readers and get emotional commitment from them, and a whole lot more.

Everything will be tailor-made for your writing and will concentrate on using the resources you already have in order to move forward.
