answers to the important questions

FAQs & THE GOOD STUFF

Do I have to have a book written to benefit from this course?

Absolutely not. In fact, you don’t even need to have a big idea for your first novel yet.

The course will step you through developing an idea, vetting it to see if it is going to make a good story, and, if so, developing it into your first book. All laid out in easy to understand sequence that builds on previous modules.

What if I have written several books, but my writing career still seems to be going nowhere? Will this course help me?

Yes! If you just can’t get traction in your career, this course will help you develop the marketing side while honing your writing to stellar levels. AND you will have the added benefit of utilizing your previous books as a means of attracting fans and developing your writing career faster.

What if I don't write fantasy? Can I still buy this course?

The course is targetted to fantasy and sci-fi writers, focusing on world building and magic along with character and plot development.

If you don’t write fantasy or sci-fi, then there will be chunks of this course that don’t apply to you. While many of the techniques on marketing, building an email list, and creating a launch team are applicable to a writer in any genre, other pertinent modules are designed with the fantasy writer and intensive world-building in mind.

I won’t say you shouldn’t purchase the course, just that there will be sections you will be thinking “that doesn’t apply to me.” I don’t want you to be frustrated! Or brainwashed into writing fantasy. Well,… 😉

Do I get to access everything all at once or do I have to wait?

You get everything as soon as you enroll! Even better, this is 24/7 lifetime access! As long as the server doesn’t crash, you can login and follow the lessons whenever you like.

And since this is the super special VIP launch with those awesome bonuses (also available as soon as you enroll, in case you were wondering), any updates or expanded material will also be yours for FREE. You, my first students, will be well taken care of!

Do I have to use specific software you recommend in this course (or to watch it)?

No way! There is no “buy my course” and then “buy this software.” This is it. You get the course and those awesome templates and downloads and lots of tips on how to create amazing books, find editors, get awesome covers all without needing to spend a ton. Actually, there are more tips on how to save money that so many authors tend to put out for these very things.

I do recommend using Word to format the ebook and paperback, but give tips on how to use Pages and Open or Libre Office (I’m a MAC user myself so understand these pains) and how to get Word for $6.99. Because I like saving my students hard earned money!

And as for how to watch, the videos will stream online. So if you can look at this sales page and the video above, you are all set to enjoy, and learn from, this course!

Is the Ultimate Fantasy Writer's Guide really step-by-step?

Yes! The course will guide you through idea development, world building, character creation, and then move into in-depth sections on writing the beginning, the middle, the end. And while you are writing, you should skip ahead to the modules on building a fan base and finding time/staying motivated.

After that, the modules on how to edit, what you need in a cover, how to format and upload your ebook AND paperback, as well as discussions on where, will be waiting for you. Plus that AWESOME launch strategy that will get you stellar reviews the first week the book is live.

And just to make it even more awesome, the course doesn’t end there. It steps you through what happens once your book is released, including long-term marketing strategies, and continuing to grow and engage your mailing list. This course has it all.

How long does it take to go through the course?

Well if you want to pull an all-nighter, you could watch it in a day. But I don’t recommend it! 😉

What you want to know is “how long until I have my awesome book online for sale?” That part is up to you. The course steps you through how to write each section, but you have to do the work. If you are a speed demon, you could have a book written in a week and edited/formatted in a month. I think you are a little insane, and possibly the undead, to do that. But it is possible. Four to six months is FAR more reasonable and for your first book, if you are a true newbie fantasy author with only the iota of an idea, eight months to a year might be more reasonable. But the guide, and me!, will be here to keep you going, answer questions, and help you reach your goal!

I really like the sounds of the course, but I'm not sure I have the time for a full course right now & writing. How much time will the course require?

It is all up to you. You get lifetime access to the material. Whether you want to binge watch all the modules or only watch half a lesson a week, it will be there waiting for you with actionable steps to help you improve your writing and keep writing even if life is hectic.

If you’ve been struggling to complete a novel, this course will keep you on track and focused so that you will get there faster. The material is about teaching you what you NEED to know without bogging you down with a lot of extra crap.

So yes, you will lose some writing time so that you can watch and follow the modules. But in the end, you will write a better novel faster, you will finish your first draft, know how to edit it, launch it to fans, and grow an author career. Isn’t that worth even half an hour a week?

I changed my mind and I want a refund. What is the policy?

As long as you let me know in the first 30 days from purchasing, you get 100% refund, no questions asked. Promise.

I have a different question. Who should I ask?

Me! Send me an email at autumn@ultimatefantasywritersguide.com and let me know what is on your mind. I’ll reply back ASAP!

OMG, I love this course!

How do I get started and how much does it cost?

How much is the Ultimate Fantasy Writer’s Guide? You could try to figure it out on your own, write a book, sort out how to format both the ebook and the paperback, sort through which website you should publish it on and take months and months to years while wondering if your book is good enough or if you made a mistake. Or you could hire it out to someone, get the best content editor, a writing coach, a professional (and hopefully good) cover, a pro-formatter, and spend over $10,000 easily. Possibly double that.

The entire Ultimate Fantasy Writer’s Guide is only $597 for lifetime access, all the swipe files, the ebook AND paperback templates, the awesome bonuses, me to call on for help, and future videos to expand the information in the course further.

And yes, you will get lifetime access to the program right away as soon as you enroll. All modules. All downloads. All bonuses. Everything is there waiting for you right now. You can binge watch the entire course or take it slow. The choice is yours.

30 DAY guarantee! PROMISE!

How about a guarantee?

I believe in this course so much because I know how much this information would have shortcut my writing career, that I’m offering a 30 day 100% money-back guarantee, no questions asked. You have to put the work in. I can’t write the book for you. But if you follow the steps, do the work, amazing, totally awesome, life changing things will happen for you!

So if you are not happy within 30 days from purchasing the course, send me an email either through the contact form in the help desk within the course or to autumn@ultimatefantasywritersguide.com, and you will receive a full refund. I stand behind this course 100% and know the love and details within it will inspire you.

Ask Writers I have helped!

“I downloaded your worldbuilder cheat sheet and just wanted to take a sec to tell you how awesome it is. I already have my world pretty well laid out but it’s been awhile since I was really excited about working more on it. Your cheat sheet actually got me thinking again about little details like ruins from collapsed cities, expanses of plains suitable for farming vs vast forest filled with game for hunting, and trade to support the left over need. It also helped me nail down some cool details about a few of the areas I hadn’t really developed yet based on what they had to do to eat and how they gathered food.”

Ed

“Awesome, simply awesome. I’m already realigning the whole of what I’ve written… I can do this, and it’s like seeing a light in the midst of a giant forest. I know where I’m going, and can see how I might arrive.”

“Your class helped me more than you know. I feel like I’ve been doing it wrong for so long, but now have inspiration.”

A.J.

“Cheers Autumn! No matter how experienced you are, it’s always useful to go back to basics if only to simplify & organise. I’m looking at this in bite-size chunks, and I think it’s going to help me make quality decisions about the plot flow for my archaic-future Arthurian page-turner!”
