First 5 Lessons of HTTS Direct are now LIVE

And as promised, DRM-free. iBooks isn’t working as expected, so you’ll only be able to find the first two lessons there right now. The other three have been loaded just as long, but have not gone live yet. The print versions aren’t yet available because I haven’t had time to put them together.






I’m proofing the next batch of lessons today. šŸ˜€

Right now, even.

Hi Holly, I have completed my Children’s Novel and have got together a short list of Literary Agents who publish this genre.
Should I keep going on this track or look at self-publishing.
I self-published a collection of short stories in Australia in 2009.
It was hard work and I’m not looking for the easy way out but a comment from you would be appreciated.
Regards Colin

I bought the five books as soon as they dropped, and so far I’ve worked through the first lesson (and peeked, in a naughty manner, at the other four). The course seems unlike anything I’ve seen before–in a good way. I’m SO excited to see the next ones come out, Holly. Thank you so much for making this available to us.

Hi Holly,
I was a student with this course but had to pull out for financial reasons and got to lesson 12 I believe. Are you going to release the whole course over time as I think it is one of the best writing courses I have ever embarked on?

I had a wonderful writing career going in the late ’60’s and into early ’90’s then dropped out due to a devastating family illness. In 2004 I re invented myself by attempting to jumpstart my career, this time focusing on writing novels. This is a calling I have felt for a long time. However, the publishing climate is very diff now from when I was riding high. Editors and publishers with whom I had very good contacts are no longer working in the business. The arena of publishing is so different today and I often feel like chucking the whole thing. I am now a “mature” writer with many stories inside of me but trying to find an agent who will sign me has become frustrating. Yet I continue to persevere as I feel the characters I am creating are crying out for release… book form. There are about a dozen of these some just begun, others in various stages of completion in my office files. Should I just keep plugging? Is there a shortcut to finding someone who will appreciate what my writing offers or ? The most difficult aspect is the fact that agents want to read only completed manuscripts. In my flourishing past I never had to do this. I just presented an idea or outline and met a deadline. I seem to have a stumbling block that keeps me from just writing to completion without the knowledge that there is interest at the end. I am rambling so will close. You are an inspiration Holly. Thanks.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
