Frequently Asked Questions
When does the course start and finish?
That's up to you! It is a completely self-paced online course. I'm going to help you set writing goals, but you decide when you start and when you finish.
How long do I have access to the course?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.
Does this course cover self-publishing?
No. I am a traditionally-published author with years of experience working with major publishers, so that is what I am teaching through this course. While the writing portions of my course would be completely relevant, there are multiple experts out there on the self-publishing side of things, so you'd be better off learning from one of them if that's the route you'd like to take. If, on the other hand, your ultimate goal is to write a mystery series, land a dream agent, and get a book deal with a publisher in order to see your books on the shelves of your favorite bookshops, then this is the course for you.
What if I need additional help after completing the course?
Your access to my Author Academy Facebook Group is good forever (once you've paid for the course), but I also offer private, one-on-one coaching via phone or video chat. You can find more information on the available packages here.
How can I ask questions during the course?
Be sure to join my private Author Academy Facebook Group. It will be the place to get your questions answered, as well as learn new tips, get on-going motivation and inspiration, and even have chances to win writing-related giveaways. Instructions on how to join are included in the course curriculum.
Can I take this course if I live outside the U.S.?
Yes, all my courses and coaching are available to international users! The one coaching-related caveat is that it may be a bit more challenging to schedule live calls depending on the number of time zones that separate us, but we can work it out.
