"Do you want to write to market and make money or be an artist and starve?"

How many times have you heard that argument?

I personally believe it's crap. I've created this course to PROVE that you CAN write at the intersection of art and commerce without selling your soul.

This course is a 100% transparent look at how I will develop, write, and promote an urban fantasy series under a brand new pen name, with NO READERS, NO SALES, NO MAILING LIST, while both writing to market AND writing what I love. In real-time.

In this course, you'll learn:

  • How to write a novel to market, step-by-step
  • How to become a "student" of any genre and learn tropes on a deep level
  • How to do market research for a genre
  • How to read bestselling books in your genre and how to borrow the exact techniques those authors use to keep readers hooked
  • How to market & promote a novel written to market
  • And more

Watch over my shoulder as I show you how to write a novel you're proud of that will wow readers as well.

WARNING: This course is extremely detailed and thorough, and the only one of its kind on the market. This isn't a course where you only get basic tips that you can easily Google yourself. It's a step-by-step behind the scenes look at my writing process, in more detail than you ever thought possible.
