The same great course... Now as an Author Workbook! Specially curated by Melissa Storm and fellow Cozy Author, Lisa Siefert. In this course 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. This workbook is designed to accompany the full, video course.

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--and book #3 a month after that!

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.

Are you ready?

Let's go!

Melissa Storm

Melissa Storm is a New York Times and multiple USA Today bestselling author of Women’s Fiction, Inspirational Romance, and Cozy Mysteries.

Despite an intense, lifelong desire to tell stories for a living, Melissa was “too pragmatic” to choose English as a major in college. Instead, she obtained her master’s degree in Sociology & Survey Methodology—then went straight back to slinging words a year after graduation anyway.

She loves books so much, in fact, that 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 Novel Publicity, Whiskered Mysteries, and Arcane City.

When she's not reading, writing, or child-rearing, Melissa spends time relaxing at her home in the Michigan woods, where she is kept company by a seemingly unending quantity of dogs and two very demanding Maine Coon rescues. She also writes under the names of Molly Fitz, Mila Riggs, and Ash Eschler.
