FAQs

YES! Bestselling authors have taken this course and leveled up their writing. Your experience/results may not be as dramatic as those of a less experienced author, but Pacing Demystified will help you encounter your writing in a different and constructive way. You’ll gain a deep understanding of pacing, and this will always be an advantage for you in your writing and editing.

Not at all. The principles of pacing can be applied to a work in progress as well as a completed manuscript, though you will find yourself paying attention to pacing differently when you’re editing versus when you’re writing. Also, by reading published books in light of what you learn in Pacing Demystified, you’ll gain a much deeper understanding of how pacing works, and what it feels like for a reader when a story’s pacing is just right.

Most genre fiction. I specialize in romance, mystery and women’s fiction, so I use a lot of examples of those genres, but it will work for anyone writing any sub-genre of romance, mystery, thrillers, science fiction, fantasy, etc.

While Pacing Demystified isn’t geared toward nonfiction writing, nonfiction writers have taken previous editions of the course and benefited from it, since even nonfiction books need good pacing to work for their readers. So nonfiction authors aren’t the target audience for this course, but you sure are welcome to take it!

No, this course is non-refundable.
