In this course you’ll learn how to recognize what pieces of your story you have (such as characters, scenes, or conflicts), determine what pieces are still missing, and fashion the pieces you need. How to create imaginative settings that can give birth to incredible societies and characters, plus how to take those characters’ cores and generate enthralling conflicts for your plot.

 You’ve read stories that absolutely swept you away into another world, stories that made you forget you were reading and ultimately left you changed. In our first lesson, we’ll teach you how to communicate through writing on such a deep level, you can do that with your own stories.

What are the nine most common weaknesses that keep new authors from publishing successfully? This course will help you identify these problems and overcome them, strengthening your own writing through education and practice. Each topic is addressed in a taped lesson, followed by learning material, recommended reading, and a writing assignment. Learn to take your writing from “okay” to “powerful” and then “mesmerizing” in this first Writing Mastery course.

Here, the focus will be on your story. Many of these exercises are designed to help you see your story in a new way, brainstorm new scenes, and then begin writing them, so that you build on the existing framework of your novel. settings that can give birth to incredible societies and characters, plus how to take those characters’ cores and generate enthralling conflicts for your plot.

Many new writers put together a great book proposal, then send it to a lousy agent or publisher. By doing that, they may set their own career back by 5 years. So in this seminar, I talk about how to vet agents and publishers, how to meet them, and basically get a leg up on a stellar career. Just as importantly, I’ll give advice to help you decide whether to go Indie, because in some genres, you might not even want a publisher, and getting one could hurt your career.

In every genre, the works at the very top of the all-time bestseller list tend to be those where the author has spent time to develop a unique and compelling world. In this series of seven lectures, Dave will talk about some of the elements of worldbuilding that you should explore.

Dave has helped numerous authors hit the New York Times Bestseller lists, so one of his most frequent questions is “How can I break into writing quickly?” In this series of lectures, Dave talks about some of the steps you need to take in order to build a successful career as a writer. This goes especially well with his book Million Dollar Book Signings, also included in this bundle.

Dave has helped launch the careers of or train such notable writers as J.K. Rowling, Stephenie Meyer, Brandon Sanderson, and James Dashner. Many of these people write for the middle-grade and young adult genres, audiences which have their own particular needs. In these lectures, Dave talks about some of the special considerations for these audiences and tells why they can be so hard to break into, but also so lucrative.


Every writer gets tired at times and feels that he has hit a creative block. In these lessons, Dave talks about how to combat that fatigue and get excited about your art once again.

Million Dollar Book Signings by David Farland

Dave has had terrible book signings and great ones. In fact, on July 3, 1999, he broke the Guinness Record for the World’s Largest Single-Author, Single-Book Signing. You wouldn’t think that in today’s world that doing book signings would be important, but in this book Dave shows how laying the foundations of success for your book is vital, and reveals how some of his authors have become millionaires by focusing on one book signing at a time.

Many writers can tell you how to outline, or not, but in this #1 Amazon bestseller, Dave takes it several steps further by helping you decide not just how to outline a novel, but how to create one that will become a bestseller.

From the time when children first began gathering around campfires, we have been seeking tales of wonder–the feeling you get when something is strange and exciting. Most of the books we read are what I call “wonder literature”, yet writing wonder is a lesson seldom taught. This book will delve into what “wonder literature” truly means and how to increase the level of wonder in your novel.

Every genre of writing has a “secret language” that builds up around it, a way of presenting itself to the world. In this book, Dave helps you see the importance of learning how to resonate well with other books and films in your genre, while resonating with real-life experiences, so that your novel will garner an audience as big as the genre that you write in.
