How Can I Help You?
I’m Randy Ingermanson, award-winning author of 6 novels. I’ve been teaching fiction for many years, and I love it! I publish The Advanced Fiction Writing E-zine, the world’s largest electronic magazine on how to write fiction, with thousands of readers. I also blog on The Advanced Fiction Writing Blog.
I believe there are three general areas I can help you with to make your fiction writing more successful:
- Organizing Your Writing
- Creating Your Story
- Marketing Your Work
But if you want to be successful you need to put out some serious, substantial effort. You need to invest in yourself. You only have three resources to invest:
- Invest your time to improve your writing
- Invest your energy to do whatever it takes to get published
- Invest your money in proven learning tools to help you use your time and energy effectively
I always love hearing from my former students who’ve gotten published. Hearing from one of them that they’ve sold their first novel (or second, or third) always makes my day. Seeing them get nominated for awards makes my day. Seeing their books in bookstores makes my day.
Let me make one thing perfectly clear: Not all my students get published. The ones who do have plenty of talent and they work hard, often for years and years. That’s normal in the publishing industry. Publishing is a hard business, and there just aren’t any guarantees. All I can do for anyone is to help them channel their talent and effort in the right directions.
I believe that nothing happens unless you take action.
On this page, there are a number of ways you can take action. These aren’t the only ways, of course, but they’re the main ways I can help you. Take a look and see if any of them are what you need RIGHT NOW.
Creating Your Story
Writing Fiction for Dummies
This book summarizes just about everything I’ve ever taught about writing fiction in one handy reference. I wrote the book especially for new writers, but I’m pretty sure that even multipublished authors will learn a number of new tricks.
List price: $20 (But nobody pays list price, right?)
