HOW TO WRITE A
Now YOU Can Create Your Own Ghost Story!
Have you ever wanted to write a ghost story, or create a series of books guaranteed to chill and thrill the reader?
Well, now you can!
From Harry Potter to Hocus Pocus, Goosebumps to The Nightmare Before Christmas, these authors and screenplay writers are banking huge royalties. R.L. Stine's net worth is $200 million, while J.K. Rowling boasts a jaw-dropping $1 billion! There's big money in writing children's books and adult novels, and these two authors alone prove paranormal sells!
In this course you will learn how to find a great story idea, develop a plot, create compelling characters, set the atmosphere and pacing, use cliffhangers and twists, the art of the "arc", create believable dialogue, and the secret of mastering suspense and timing.

6. As part of the course, I am offering a FREE review of the student's completed story for up to 2 months after the course ends. It can be emailed to me and I will offer advice and editing suggestions. I will also offer advice on how to self-publish or find a traditional publishing house.
My goal is to make this a fun, interactive course that will teach the student how to craft a polished story for any genre. But, for now...let's write a ghost story!
I'm Rebecca F. Pittman. I'm a bestselling author of 13 titles. My History and Haunting series of non-fiction books lands me regularly on TV, radio & podcasts where I'm interviewed concerning new evidence I've found or paranormal activity I've encountered.
My juvenile fiction book is called
T.J. Finnel and the Well of Ghosts.
I have a series of mysteries coming out soon with a supernatural bent.
