Welcome! Perhaps you've always wanted to write a fun, quirky mystery... or maybe Cozies have only recently caught your eye. Maybe you're already writing--and selling!--them.
Whatever the case, this course has you covered.
We'll discuss everything from plotting and planning all the way to testing to make sure you have the right blurb and cover and running ads to bolster your book. The live Facebook group means you can bring your questions and ideas and even request specific lessons.
How do I know so much about Cozies? Because I write them too! My first book, written as Molly Fitz, catapulted to #67 on the USA Today bestselling books list. I call KITTY CONFIDENTIAL my "beautiful little juggernaut", because it keeps selling and hooking new readers with no signs of slowing down any time soon. Oh, and book #2 in the series also made a showing on the USA Today bestsellers list one month later.
In this course I'll tell you exactly what I did, what I've learned, and help you work toward the same. Nothing is held back. You’ll know exactly what I’ve spent, where, and whether I thought it was worth it. Although I tend to launch books with large ad budgets, you don’t have to in order to gain something valuable from this course. Each marketing method will be discussed, providing “Low or No Budget” options and the “Whoa, Big Spender!” option.

Who am I?
I’m still relatively new to the Cozy genre—perhaps you are, too. What I’m not new to is writing fiction, launching books successfully, and distilling what I’ve learned into courses that I can then share with others.
I finished writing my first book in 2009. I began offering services for authors in 2011.
These days, I have 18 novels and 11 novellas under my belt in the Romance/ Women’s Fiction genre. I only have 2 published Cozy Mysteries so far, but have absolutely fallen in love and plan to release many more soon!
You may already be familiar with me through one of my businesses—LitRing, Sweet Promise Press, Novel Publicity, TheAuthorSite, or YourAuthorEngine—or you may be hearing about me for the very first time. Whatever the case, questions are always welcome. If you’re still trying to decide if this course is a good choice for you, please reach out via email@example.com.
Want to learn, but not excited about the video format? Not to worry! Each video is accompanied by detailed notes, which you can either read in place of watching the videos or go through in order to brush up on the lessons a second time.
"I have used LitRing (Melissa Storm) for several years for various marketing things, and I've always been impressed with the quality of service and the results.
Melissa Storm is a mother first, and everything else second. Writing is her way of showing her daughter just how beautiful life can be, when you pay attention to the everyday wonders that surround us. So, of course, Melissa's USA Today bestselling fiction is highly personal and often based on true stories.
Melissa loves books so much, she married fellow author Falcon Storm. Between the two of them, there are always plenty of imaginative, awe-inspiring stories to share. Melissa and Falcon also run a number of book-related businesses together, including LitRing, Sweet Promise Press, Novel Publicity, Your Author Engine, and the Author Site. When she's not reading, writing, or child-rearing, Melissa spends time relaxing at home in the company of a seemingly unending quantity of dogs and a rescue cat named Schrödinger.
Melissa maintains active memberships in Romance Writers of America (RWA), American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW), Novelists, Inc. (NINC), and the Alliance of Independent Authors (ALLi).
