"Would YOU Like to Become a Published Author - SOON - and Change Your Life FOREVER?"
Dear Fellow Writer,
There's no real secret
to getting your fiction published by traditional publishers.
In order to get your next novel
published, all you have to do is know what you're
Because if you do that, then you are placing your work in the top
1% of the fiction manuscripts taken
seriously by publishers.
Have you ever received rejections? Do you feel
unappreciated by publishers?
It needn't be that way.
Good, long term writers get treated well by publishers -
whether they publish their material or not. Good writers
are responded to with courtesy, respect, kindness
and even apologized to for not being published!
Why? Because these writers know what they're
doing - and it shows.
In their work, their presentation and in their attitude.
Their work glows with confidence and authority
- they write without errors, they adhere to the rules of
good writing and good fiction.
If you do the same, you can be accepted this
year, next month, and if your MS is done already, next
"Rob, you have given me spark in my writing
again and I am very grateful to you for that.
Thank you for all your lessons. They're just
wonderful for me. " Jaye Sevenhawks, author
It's a complete myth that good work goes ignored and
unpublished. Publishers are actually crying out for good
manuscripts. The simple truth is that 99% of writers
just don't present their manuscripts as well as they should.
But you can - if you follow the simple
instructions contained within Fiction 101 - the
Easy Way to Write's unique new writing program.
Fiction 101 presents you with a thorough
roadmap for getting fiction published. It's everything
you will ever need to know to compete in the publishing
industry - and enjoy the journey.
I've learned so much and had
so much fun with you!" Lynn Grosvenor, author
The fact is, getting published is not the endpoint, the
goal - it's actually just the beginning of your writing
career. Writing success is about building
relationships with publishers. It's about
submitting quality material and getting the respect you
But how do you get to that point?
Why does it sometimes seem so
The truth is, it's not. You just have to get it
Most authors realize this maybe three or four novels down
the track. But how would you like to shortcut the system?
By getting it right the first time?
It's not hard. Like most things in life, it's a process -
a series of steps. Fiction 101 has been specifically
designed to show you that process. Fiction 101
will help you glide effortlessly towards your goal
- to write fiction manuscripts that shine with professionalism,
authority and confidence.
"I love your work Rob!
You make such good sense and you have such a warm
and friendly voice in your writing - you just
make everything an enjoyable and educational read
without any of the guru hype." Billie Williams, author
Even in amongst a gathering slush pile, publishers will
tell you that good manuscripts are easy to spot. Well
written MSS literally shine like a beacon.
And reading a well written MS is like a blast of
cool refreshing air to a publisher. It's a joy
to experience for them because, simply put, it's so rare!
Why not make you next submission that good?
And don't be put off. It's not about being original or
even profound. It's simply about presenting a manuscript
whereby the publisher recognizes that the author cares
enough to have learnt and understood there are certain
conventions - that there is a right way
to deal with words, prose, grammar, drama, action,
dialogue, description, pretty much everything.
Your next manuscript can be the one - the
contender. It doesn't matter how far along the
road you are, how many novels you've written already, I
can teach you how to create the best and most sellable
There are many ways to write but there are only a few
ways to write that will impress a modern publisher. I
can show you how to take charge of your fiction.
Be its leader. Fill yourself with the confidence that
only knowledge and wisdom can give you. That only I
can teach you.
just want to thank you for doing what you do.
I've always wanted to learn to write and you gave
me this dream come true. You are so incredibly
kind and wise. You're on my prayer list to always
be successful in all your endeavors because you
share so unselfishly. Thank you so
much." Shea Dumas, author
