How to Write Stories That Work - and Get Them Published!

If you're really serious about writing, and you really want to get published, then this is the course for you!

The product of the course is twofold:

1. You’ll be able to write stories that really attract readers


2. You will have a published book in your hands with your name on it!

To achieve 1, you will need to know something about the secret language of fiction - how stories really work. This course contains revolutionary new material based on 40 years of study and research into how the great authors of the world became successful.

To achieve 2, you need to realise that you don’t need a publisher! In this Golden Age of Independent Publishing, you can do it all yourself - you just need some guidance at the beginning and then you’ll be unstoppable! This course walks you through the entire process until you have a book published and available to the public!

What’s different about this course?

This course is very different to anything else on the market.

There are books, manuals, courses and blogs out there with plenty of advice on how to succeed as a writer. They are packed full of information about ‘writer’s journey’s’, three-act structures, believable characters and all the rest.

This course is NOT about three act structures, or even particularly about 'writer's journeys' and all the rest of it.

This course is all about the PHYSICS that makes all those other things work in stories - the principles that lie behind almost all other advice you'll ever read about.

Similarly, there are plenty of manuals, books, guides, and consultants who will tell you all about getting published - and will charge you £100s or even £1,000s to take your book out of your hands and get it into print.

This course doesn’t tell you about getting published, it walks you through the entire process - at a fraction of the cost.

This course turns you into an INDEPENDENT PUBLISHER and empowers you to print and distribute your own work from the moment you complete the course.

On the way, you’ll find out:

How powerful do your ideas have to be to make your book work?

What makes characters attractive - and what doesn't?

How can you get guaranteed emotional commitment from readers?

What invisible force 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.

Everything in this course 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 or American television sit-coms. Work examined during the course includes that of master authors like Dickens, Austen, E. M. Forster, C. S. Lewis and many others.

Why are successful works of fiction successful?
Their secrets are here!

What will you get from the course?

With the How to Write Stories That Work - and Get Them Published! e-course, you’re getting a tailor-made, comprehensive programme of help for your fiction, installing successful features of the world’s greatest writing, and including the key factors about

The Role of Ideas

Character Construction

Attracting Readers

Emotional Commitment

Plot Structuring

Quality of Style

Fulfilling Expectations

PLUS how to get your work actually published!

AND your published book - with your name on the cover!

How was the course developed?

This course was developed from an extensive personal writing and publishing consultancy (costing £1,995.00) which normally takes six months to deliver, also using data in the book How Stories Really Work.

The course is available at a fraction of the cost of that consultancy!


Because I’ve reduced every aspect of the complex consultancy down to simple actions which you can do yourself, from your own computer.

By the time you have finished this course, you will be the expert!

What feedback do you get as you progress?

As the course continues, it becomes more and more ‘tailor-made’ to fit your needs - in other words, you start off with high quality advice and it gets even higher! You get a direct line to me and precise tips for your fiction.

All submissions from the course 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 feedback on

• 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.

Please understand that this e-course contains unique, exclusive material. You simply won’t find this anywhere else on the planet because it’s based on my own 40 years of research and work in the field of literature. It’s been ‘field-tested’ with students over fifteen years; the first book about all this, The Master Authors’ Secret Handbook, was written in response to student demand, followed by How Stories Really Work.

What about publishing?

In the second part of the course, you’ll get into print for real and then learn how to market your own book to the masses!

That’s right - the How to Write Stories That Work - and Get Them Published! e-course will not only teach you about the secret language of fiction, how stories really work, the role of ideas, making characters attractive, getting emotional commitment from readers and so on - and get you published! - it also gives you a Marketing Programme and specific business advice so that you can make it as a writer!

Once you have your story ready, based on the advice you'll get in this course, you’ll have a proof-read manuscript that has been edited into shape.

You’ll get instructions on how to get your manuscript formatted, page numbered and so on.

Then you’ll get published! To your specifications! i.e. what size of book, how many pages, what cover and so forth.

PLUS invaluable BONUS material:

•A Marketing Programme!

•How to Succeed in Business as a Writer!

•How to Achieve Your Goals!
