15 emerging writers, looking for the ‘moment’ might like to consider the 5-day Popular Fiction Masterclass that I will be holding in Adelaide during April 2013. Having experienced the epiphany and changing my life from corporate dweller to full time novelist in the Year 2000, I have now written 25 novels across the genres of adult and children’s fantasy, crime and my more recent big sellers in adventure-romance. My books sell worldwide and in various translations and the catalyst was a classroom in Hobart and a great teacher who knew how to motivate. In September 2012 I tag-teamed with Bryce Courtenay for his Final Masterclass in Canberra and it was surreal to have come full circle. We watched a number of talented students go through their life-altering moment when they truly embraced the mantle of being writers and felt galvanised into action. It was wonderful to experience and I gave a promise to my dying mentor that I would accept the baton and continue his work. Professional courses of this nature and duration – and energy – are not inexpensive but they can achieve what no other books or courses have. I am committing to it by postponing a novel. So if you think you’re ready, that you’re past being a beginner, that you really want to write commercial fiction but you are searching for motivation and the right inspiration, register your interest today by emailing me via my website at http://www.fionamcintosh.com or follow the link
I will respond to everyone and your email address will be kept private. It is purely so that I can send you all the necessary details.

You will need to plan a week away from home arriving in Adelaide for Anzac Day – April 25, 2013.
Look forward to hearing from you. F
