What to Expect from This Course

I’m glad you’re here.

I’ll be your mentor and teach you a set of skills I know will help you crush self-doubt so you can write your book with confidence.

Over the past 40 years, I’ve written nearly 200 books (two-thirds of them novels) that have sold over 70 million copies, and I’ve had the honor of making The New York Times bestseller list 21 times.

But I did not start out confident or successful—in fact, far from it.

Is there some magic that will turn you into a bestselling author? No.

But are there skills you can learn that could put you on the path to success? You bet.

And I’m happy to share them with you.

This course is designed to help you:

  • Learn at your own pace
  • Access the information 24/7
  • Network with a community of like-minded students
  • Build a vault of power tools and writing resources (bonus items)
  • Amplify your learning with targeted assignments

By the end of this course you will:

  • Overcome self-doubt
  • Know how to set realistic, measurable, and meaningful goals
  • Know how to create a writing schedule that works
  • Confidently call yourself an author

If you’re ready, let’s roll!
