How to Write a Novel


A burning desire to write and finish your first novel


For anyone who has a novel in them waiting to be written, but lack the confidence to start it.  This is a detailed step-by-step course in how to write your first novel from an experienced novelist who has 5 star reviews on Amazon.  You will receive several hours of videos, using extracts from well known writers, examples from my own experience and the strategies and structures that great writers have used for centuries.  Unlike other courses, this is fully comprehensive, taking you from the first steps of getting your initial ideas, right through to ending your novel and the editing process.  Along the way, you will learn how to build relatable characters, create drama and tension, interesting sub-plots – and many more writing strategies to keep your readers turning the page.  You will also be given exercises to help you build your own story as you go along.  By the end of the course, you should have at least a synopsis, created your main characters, and perhaps even written your first few chapters.Rosamunde Bott is a self-published author who has been writing novels for over 30 years.  She has written six full length novels, including a children’s fantasy story.  Her multi-timeline, metaphysical and historical novels consistently get 5 and 4 star reviews on Amazon, and her books are often described as great page-turners.
