Five Star Reviews.

We are the home of happy writing.

Writing a novel is a wonderful experience, as our many writers attest. Read what they say at our testimonials page.

“ I just don't think I'd have written a novel without this course, and doing so has been a dream since I was a tiny kid. Louise and the Novelry has given me something to go to everyday to combat the terror of the blank page. It's been an absolutely joy, and even though I'm over the moon to be done, I'm tempted to start another just for the pure joy of the discovery. Thank you.” Andrea Holck.
