"I loved this course. I wish I had been able to take this class early in my writing career instead of figuring things out as I went along. Even now, after twenty-four published novels, I learned valuable shortcuts and refinements in these lessons that I will apply to my work immediately. Thank you Brian Jackson, for a well-thought-out and effective course geared to authors (but useful for others as well.)"
