"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 doing.

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 week!

"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It's a complete myth that good work goes ignored and unpublished.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.

"Rob, 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 deserve.

But how do you get to that point? 

Why does it sometimes seem so hard?

The truth is, it's not. You just have to get it right.

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 fiction. Guaranteed.

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.

"I 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
