Who is this course for?


Whether you've already published a novel or have always dreamed of being an author, this course gives you the ideas and guidance you need to raise the level of your writing craft.

This course is dedicated to writers who wish to become authors. It offers unique perspectives on everything other than just the writing that it takes to build a novel. A successful author of four #1 bestsellers and a professional book coach, Tom Avitabile takes a fresh approach with 15 practical, not professorial, modules that address the most common issues his clients, and those who wish to create commercial fiction, face. 

As a book coach, Tom has taken authors from idea to first draft, from the first draft to polish, from polish to final draft from their current book to their next book. This course will help get you to your next level of writing on your way to authoring.


Here's what you'll learn in this course:

  • Practical tips on building a satisfying manuscript
  • A greater understanding of commercial fiction
  • How to recognize some unconscious missteps writers take
  • How to keep the reader turning pages
  • How to avoid a boring sequence, chapter, or book
  • How to better connect characters to readers
  • How to judge your writing for pace, involvement, and reader engagement
  • How to recognize and control story creep or "kitchen sink" writing

Hi, I'm Tom,

and if I can get published, YOU can get published.


Under my picture In my senior yearbook, it could have said, “Most likely to never write a book.” Why? Because I was actually classified as ‘functionally illiterate’ in high school! Ergo, my handle as The Accidental Author.

Seven novels and four #1 bestsellers later, I have created a small business coaching folks who have written their first, second, or 17th novel. My approach is organic and totally my own take on compelling dedicated individuals to THEIR next level of writing on their way to becoming authors. I am happy and proud that I have made a difference for my clients and their craft, confidence, and ability to satisfy their need to better communicate through a higher level of craft what’s in their hearts and minds. 

In my course, I will illuminate the most common issues and problematic areas that most writers (and my many clients) have encountered in their work. These ubiquitous core issues once revealed will fade from an author’s work thus making room for more creativity, invention, characterizations, and craft. 

Whether you, or someone you know, wants to write a novel, are writing a novel or has finished writing a novel, these modules and exercises are sure to deliver insights, confidence, and a new way to look at your work...and help elevate you from writer to author.
