My name is Mark Dawson. I’m the author of the three million-selling John Milton series and the founder of the Self Publishing Formula – an online community designed to help aspiring writers get their words out into the world and maybe even make a little money while they’re at it.
Writing a bestselling book was an ambition of mine from a very young age. It took a lot of work and effort, but I got there in the end. I made plenty of mistakes along the way, and – like most writers - I have a drawer full of discarded manuscripts that I realised were never going to be good enough. I usually gave up because I lost confidence in the story that I was trying to tell. It often felt that I was writing just for me, and that there was no chance that readers would feel the same way about the story as I did.
You can sell a book with a great cover and a snappy blurb, but it’s your writing and storytelling that will keep readers coming back for more. That means weaving a narrative that keeps readers guessing. That means crafting fleshed-out heroes and villains
who go on journeys of both the emotional and literal kind. It means making your writing super-addictive... plus a whole lot more.
Nobody ever said writing a novel that will sell was a walk in the park. But with our new How to Write a Bestseller course, we’ve tried to make it a little easier.
Let bestselling author Suzy K Quinn reveal the secrets behind writing a book that readers will love – from starting with a killer premise, title and tagline, all the way to editing and ensuring that your prose keeps your readers hooked from page to page (not to mention all the juicy tips and techniques you’ll need in between).
I created this course because I want you to have what I have: an exciting, well-paid, creative career writing stories. Learn how to write what sells and join the bestseller club. I can’t wait to welcome you.
The course is absolutely brilliant. It's a masterclass at writing to market. For the price, it's the best money I've spent - and I'm constantly investing in this.
I’ve taken more than a dozen online writing courses. I’m about halfway through and have achieved more in this course than all the others combined. This is by far the best writing course I have taken.
If you've ever promised yourself you'd write a professional, marketable novel, but were too overwhelmed by the process to make a serious attempt, this is where you begin.
