Maybe you've tried to write series novels,
"You Can Learn The Secrets To
Dear Fellow Writer,
Let's face it. Writing fiction is hard---at least it is if you intend to write well enough to sell your work.
Facing down the prospect of creating a series that could run 300,000 to a million words, though, makes writing a solo novel feel like a walk in the park.
First, there's the anything-but-simple question: "What kind of series do you want to write?"
You have 192 types of series
Or whether one of the other 190 variations would fit better.
Figuring out how to choose the series type that's right for you is the first thing I'll teach you.
You need to know:
Writing a series is NOT like writing a solo novel. In the first book of your series, you have a whole series of tasks you must accomplish to set up all the books that follow.
Miss a step, and lose readers. It's that simple.
In Week Two, I'll teach you how to present your characters, what you must include about them when you introduce them, and what you can hold back.
I'll show you how to establish the essential details of your world right away, and make sure the readers who will love what you've written will know they're in the right place when they pick up your book.
You'll learn which limitations you need to get on page one of Book One, and why---and which limitations can wait a while before you break them out and show them off.
In Week Two, you'll also learn the special characteristics of a series novel ending, and how to bring the first book to a close without infuriating your readers, cheating your story, or wrecking the book. You'll learn:
With your blueprint for Book One established, it's time to move on to...
The bigger your series gets, the more complicated tracking story events, character changes, plot twists, and loose ends becomes. So in Week Three you'll learn how to Track and Connect.
You'll also learn to use timelines. Some of the 192 varieties of series don't need them, but even if you decide to write one of these varieties, you may want to do a different series later.
And before you even write Book One, which is when this will do you the most good, you will learn to plan your exit strategies.
You betcha. You'll plan:
No matter how you go out, you WON'T go out by breaking your story, murdering the character everyone loves just so you can get even with your publisher, or writing an ending so stupid people will be talking about it for years. (St. Elsewhere, do you hear me?)
And in Week Three you'll also learn how to pitch a series, both if you're a first novelist, and if you've been published before but have not yet sold a series. You need different strategies for each situation.
Finally, in Week Four, you'll get the Q & A session where I've answered the toughest and most important questions students raised in the first three weeks of class.
Writing takes work. Writing well take a lot of work. You will not be able to simply watch the videos and create a great series.
You'll have to do the worksheets, create your series project, and write the whole thing.
If you just want to say you're a writer, save yourself the money, buy a black turtleneck, and complain to your friends and associates about how blocked you are and how much you're suffering for your art.
If you go away for a writing retreat, you'll spend hundreds of dollars for the course, plus the cost of travel and lodging, and you're unlikely to find a writing retreat that specifically covers writing a series, or that is taught exclusively by the person who's sold five of them...and counting.
If you take a college course, you'll spend hundreds or thousands of dollars, and the odds are the person teaching you won't actually write for a living.
I do write for a living, and I've sold a LOT of novel series.
If within 60 days of starting the course you haven't learned anything, or you aren't satisfied, I'll refund your 100% of your money. Just ask. You'll have a direct line to me throughout the course.
This is how I sold all of MY series. I built my process by trial and error over years --- and you'll learn not just what I did right, but where I really screwed up. You can save yourself a WHOLE lotta pain if you learn from my mistakes rather than repeating them.
I've been doing this gig since 1991, and the FIRST thing I sold was a fantasy series. So far, I've sold 32 novels, and I'm still writing.
I'll be delighted to walk you through the process: Writing a series is incredible fun, but you definitely need to know where the landmines are and how to avoid them.
