Fantasy/Paranormal Writer's Course
After years of writing and reading Fantasy, a Fantasy bestseller, and clients begging, lol, Literary GPS presents its first Fantasy/Paranormal Writer's Course!
Do you love the things that go bump in the night? Vampires, witches, warlocks, fairies, magic, wizzards, angels, demons, and other dimensions/worlds?
This course is perfect for writers at any stage of writing. If you've been wanting to write Fantasy/Paranormal, this course is just for you.
You're not sure where to start. You don't know the components that go into the genre. You're tired of writing and reading the same types of stories, and you're ready to tackle your own? Check out the course list below.
Course 1- Character Development and selecting Paranormal/Fantasy entities/deities/ characters
Course 2- Fantasy/Paranormal Writing Dynamics and Essential Tools and Literary Devices
Course 3- World Building/Story Origins
Course 4- Determining Pace, POV, and Length
Course 5- Outlining and Piecing the Story Together
Join us October 31st, at 4 p.m. central for the first day of class. We will work TOGETHER in a village style-setting and separately doing our one-on-one's. By the end of this 30-day leisure course, you will have the tools and tips you need to confidently write a fantasy/paranormal novel, novella, standalone, or series.
Again, this course is done on your own time. If you keep up with the lessons, that's great. If not, it's for your leisure, so you can watch the lessons, read the worksheets, and ask your questions when you're ready.
My goal is to help ten writers, from any background, successfully incorporate these tips and tools to complete their first of many drafts of their WIP(work in progress) or future WIP.
Things to look forward to:
One on One's
AND...LOTS OF MAGIC!

Outlining Methods & How to Use Them
There are many ways to outline a book, and sometimes, using one method won't give you the same type of content you were hoping to get for each book. Literary GPS has devised a resource to teach you about the most COMMON and EFFECTIVE outlining methods with specific examples on how to use them. Don't sleep on this ESSENTIAL writing resource.
Perfect for anyone who struggles to create an outline, has a hard time committing to an outline, or just wants to try something new.
Beginner friendly, but not dull for even the most expert writer.
Did you know, after an assessment or a sample edit, your editor can/might charge you more for EXCESSIVE errors? Wouldn't it be nice to know what editors are looking for when they take on clients and what common mistakes you can check for to bring your editing costs down AND the time it will take to edit your manuscript to perfection?
Mood-Writing Prompt Journal(physical)
The Mood Writing Prompt Journal is the physical journal you need to defeat writer's block. It's packed with 64 genre-driven prompts meant to help your creativity flow. Our Prompt journal headlines urban romance, contemporary romance, fantasy, and drama custom prompts that you won't find anywhere else.
5 Course Writer's Boot Camp
Literary GPS presents its first writer's book camp.
Are you struggling to finally write the book you've always dreamt of? You know you're talented and gifted but have no idea where to start, and you're not sure how to make your book as amazing as the books you read daily.
You haven't found the WRITE coach. *See what I did there*?
Your friends don't support you. You know you need to know more about the writing portion of the industry, but you don’t know where to look? You’re looking for a course that will answer all of your questions and set you on a path of knowledge that you can use to write?
If this sounds like you, you should join Literary GPS's first writer's boot camp. We will begin our journey TOGETHER, from just thinking about it and doodling, to writing & completing your manuscript. In a village setting, since it takes all of us to come together, we will tackle the following courses that are quintessential in your journey as an author.
Course 1- Designing Essential Black Characters
Course 2- Organizing Your Novel
Course 3- Preparing an In-Market, Eye-Catching Synopsis/Blurb
Course 4- Writing Urban Fiction/Contemporary Fiction Breaking Down Dynamics & Tropes that SELL
Course 5- Self-Editing/Editing Tips &; Reading Your Book as a Reader
Within 45 days, participants will take away a book ready to hit the book streets. Some might even hit their goal before the end of our bootcamp. My job is to educate you, build your confidence, and leave you with so much knowledge, that walking into your manuscript and out of it will be a breeze. Now, that's not to say writing is easy because it isn't, but it's totally doable, and we're going to knock it out of the park.
Things to look forward to:
One on one's
Daily interaction in a village setting
There's such a stigma against self-published authors, and as a self-published author who has been successful, I know there's no such thing as not being able to write a book that will sell, nor is it a thing that you can't make money AND still be authentic.
We will be diligently working to help you reach your goal of completing and publishing your book.
Social Media Kit
Your release day deserves to be celebrated, and a media kit is the visual you need to draw the attention to your next release. Your media kit is packed with information all about you, that fellow readers will need/want to follow your journey of writing.
A media kit is typically used when launching a new product/service/book to intrigue new readers and convince them to purchase your book. This is an alternative to posting your link 100 times a day, and using your flyer and cover as your only means to promote/advertise.
A media kit is designed with the intention of gaining a larger following/larger attention from more readers in your target market who are not familiar with your work.
Social Media Management
Some writers/authors prefer focusing on the craft, and you can now do that, by hiring Literary GPS to manage your social media.
We will provide branded content for your business page/personal page. Currently, we only work with Facebook as a management platform.
This service is for a month.
You'll be given 30-31 days worth of content.
We will schedule your posts based on the best posting time for your engagement.
This service will allow you the opportunity to focus on your craft, and allow us to help you build the author profile you and your work deserve.
