So what's in the masterclass?
xxxModule 1. The Idea and the Outline
Writing a blockbuster novel is not just about luck. 99% of the books you see in the NY Times bestseller list were planned and executed with the express purpose of getting on to it.
We will explore the psychology of bestselling authors and the questions they ask themselves before they begin writing. Finding a topic and a set of events that will be compelling to many people is just as important as writing about your characters and their relationships. There are big questions you will need to ask yourself before you write your own bestselling novel. I will reveal those questions and their significance to your success.
I will show you how to easily construct a bestseller outline of your own - and show how strong outlines were used to create the five bestselling novels of our time.
xxxModule 2. Characters and their Relationships
We will analyse what makes a character heroic and enduring. There are simple formulas - but be aware, these are in no way formulaic because if they were, they wouldnt work!
Building and developing bestseller characters and compelling character-based scenarios is a process one you can easily master. I will reveal to you the simple rules that ensure a readers engagement in your characters, their relationships, histories, actions and motivations.
We also analyse point of view and how best to use it. Here again, there are rules on how to proceed. Using the examples of the five bestselling novels featured, I will explain those rules and guide you into making the correct decisions for your own work.
xxxModule 3. Scene Structure and Plotting
Plotting modern stories is no longer a
random series of writerly mishaps. Just like TV and the
movies, plotting a major novel is a logical sequence of
carefully considered judgments that a committed
bestselling author (and often his/her agent and
publisher) can and do make.
Remember that my purpose in these lessons is to help guide you towards writing a bestseller. In this module I will present to you formulas which you may embrace or reject, based on your needs and your intuition. However, from the five examples cited, I will also give evidence that certain conventions are best adhered to if you sincerely want to write a bestselling novel.
xxxModule 4. Story Editing and Revision
As writers, we all know that careful editing can make the crucial difference between rejection, consideration or acceptance. Editing a high concept novel requires a dedicated focus on story, impact and emotional involvement with a critical, sometimes ruthless eye. Let me show you how that is done.
Editing and revising a bestseller is often a new frontier for many writers, but one that really must be mastered. I will explore the various techniques employed by bestselling authors and in their own words show you how this powerful mindset is achieved and exploited.
If youve never actually achieved this position of calm objectivity in regards to your own writing, and its potential force, this module promises to be an enlightening adventure.
xxxModule 5. Submission and Success
When the writing is over, your quest for publication begins. But rest assured, if youve followed the teaching of this course up to this point, you are streets and houses ahead of the competition. You will have reached a state of absolute surety that your work is a bestseller merely looking for a home.
This, believe it or not, is when you, the author, has more power than you will ever have in the rest of your writing career. I will show you how to use that power skilfully and to your ultimate advantage.
Based on actual evidence, I will show you a marketing and submission plan that will ensure your success in placing your novel with a publisher.
Plus, tips, secrets and tactics that have been used over and over to literally guarantee long-term success as a bestselling author. All told with the customary wit and wisdom you'd expect from me - and with full color illustrations too!

TESTIMONIAL RECEIVED OVERNIGHT:
"Over a year ago, I purchased almost all of your writing guides and studied them, no, I devoured them, eager to become a published author. Your how-to-guides were different from the previous writing books I purchased. They were easy to follow and full of useful information. I kept having ah-ha moments while reading your work and almost every paragraph was highlighted because of the useful information. It was life changing for me.
"Even today, while working on my second novel, I still refer to your material when I need help with my writing. If you ever need a testimonial about how your work can help others chasing the same dream, please don't hesitate to contact me."
