I'm delighted to announce the publication of our member's novel - The Light Between Us by Katie Khan - which scored a five star review in Heat and is romping up the fiction charts.
'A bold new talent' says Matt Haig.
Published by Penguin's imprint Transworld this month, Katie began writing her novel with The Novelry in August last year.
As Katie said in her speech at the book's launch party at the Owl Bookshop last night - she was nervous about the 'difficult second album' but found it all came together. She thanked her family and friends and agent for support and has very sweetly thanked The Novelry in her acknowledgements.
A writer needs a solid daily process, inspiration, encouragement and support.
Katie has a big day job, and writes bold and inspiring novels. You too can write like Katie - make sure you get the support you need!
The steps to becoming a published author are simple, but precise.
If you love reading and would love to raise your writing game to publishing standard, you might like to explore what’s on offer here at The Novelry. Plenty of free advice at the blog.
The Classic Course teaches writers how to build a world in fiction. Learn the techniques and methods of authors like JRR Tolkien, CS Lewis, JK Rowling and more. Delve into your own unique life experience and find the story inside you. You’ll leave the course with a plan for your novel and plenty of material.
If you have an idea and need to write it, write it fast. So write it in a season, as Stephen King advises, with the Ninety Day Novel ® course. It’s an online course, available worldwide, you can sign up at any time and you’ll be guided step by step, daily, and supported all the way to ‘The End’. With one-to-one troubleshooting sessions and plenty of encouragement from fellow writers, no one gets left behind.
Put that pen down! Leave that novel in a drawer for at least a month and read other great books again, then return to the novel and produce a second draft using The Big Edit course.
Submit those first three chapters one by one to the novelists’ community for warm, wise feedback. Then when you’ve taken on board all the constructive praise, you send it to Louise Dean, founder of The Novelry who will either give you further direction or submit for you to our leading literary agency partners.
