HOW CAN YOU WRITE A SUCCESSFUL BOOK?

There are 5.6 million books published in English every year, and a section of the book industry works like a conveyor belt, pushing any books that meet the minimum word count out the door.

I think that’s wrong.

If you’re going to publish a book, publish a good one. If you’re going to bother with writing, let’s make it excellent.

Listen, I care about the quality of your book. I understand how it feels to get stuck, and like you, I’ve been frustrated when my first draft hasn’t turned out the way it should have.

That’s why I’ve made it my mission to help authors tell better stories. Over the last ten years, I’ve helped hundreds of authors to write their dream novel.

The courses in the Bookfox Academy give you the necessary skills to tell a story that the reader won’t forget. Writers who work with me win awards, get fantastic reviews, and gain an audience of fans eager for the next book.

Let’s work together to write the novel you’ve always wanted to write.

Your Subscription includes:

After working with me, you’ll write a book that makes fellow writers envious and old friends brag they know you.

More importantly, you’ll feel confident about your novel and motivated to write another.

What Writers Are SAYING

“Genesis” will be published tomorrow AND it got a starred review from Kirkus and will be in the list of Kirkus’s November edition Best Indie Books of the Month! I just wanted to say that I couldn’t have done it without you. Thank you so so so much for all your help.”

Dear John, I’m just writing to tell you I have a contract with Random House for the book you helped me with! Thank you for being so excited about my work. You made me a better writer, and I am going to recommend you widely. 

– Susan Doherty, author of “The Ghost Garden”

Dear John, I self published “Born Ready” on Amazon, and I put a brief post on Facebook about it. Soon, people were busting down my door with excitement about how much they loved it, and asked how soon the sequel would arrive. Thank you so much. I couldn’t have done it without you.

– Kathleen Belt, author of “Born Ready”

I took your course, “Two Weeks to Your Best Children’s Book.” Upon completion I sent you my manuscript “Eddie Ventures Home” for edits. I hired an illustrator and released the book in January, 2021 on Amazon. In a little over three weeks I have sold over 1,000 copies!

— Julie Kennedy, author of “Eddie Ventures Home”
