How Do You Get the EXACT Information You Need to Finish Your Book, Your Way?
I’ve worked with hundreds of new and experienced writers, and one thing they all have in common is that aha! moment, when the fog clears and they can see the book clearly that they’re meant to write. What if I could light the path you will blaze for your writing life, giving you a decade of writing knowledge in just 8 weeks?
- Spent oodles of time slogging through books on writing, or spent money on other courses, but got no real answers to the practical questions that come up when you're writing fiction.
- Found a few writing tools or processes that work for you, but you're not sure how they all fit together.
- Asked friends, a critique partner, or an editor for feedback on your pages, but their advice is conflicting.
- Noticed your writing is slowing down. You're just not sure if it's good enough.
You Have an Amazing Story That You Can't Wait to Tell...
Hello, Wonderful Writer!
You love to write and have been sacrificing your Saturday Netflix time and maybe letting the dishes sit in the sink a little longer than usual (we’ve all been there) to find time to work on your book. You have some chapters written, or a complete draft, but it’s taking way longer than you expected, and you're not sure if readers will get exactly what you're trying to say.
The thought that it might need a complete overhaul leaves you cold, and you wonder if your writing is good enough to publish. In the meantime, your story won’t let you go. Your characters are egging you on. You have to finish it, but writing your book is so much more than just checking "write book" off your bucket list.
You want readers to LOVE your story, sharing it as a must read with all their friends.
I’m Suzy Vadori - Author, Editor, and Certified Book Coach
I can't wait to give you the exact roadmap you need to get that book you're writing out into the world.
As a former business executive, I came into the writing world as an outsider, and found the information available underwhelming. Where was the GUIDEBOOK?
All I wanted was for someone to show me the way to get the story I had in my head onto the page, while grabbing readers by the shoulders and shaking them.
I dug in, learning from every writing expert I could find, building my skills. My first book, The Fountain, went on to sell thousands of copies and win awards. I spent the next decade studying with some of the best agents, editors and writers in the world, and building the guidebook I wish I had when I started, to help hundreds of writers just like me tell their story in gripping ways.
Today, I'm thrilled to share the exact roadmap you need, along with practical examples you can use right away to make your book wicked good.
Felicity turned her book idea into a 5 book series
It's like I was stumbling around in a temple with a flickering torch -- mostly feeling my way along -- and Suzy turned on the floodlights.
During the Wicked Good Bootcamp, I plotted and wrote a novel applying Suzy's excellent tips, tools, and strategies. I queried this book to a select group of agents and publishers and had a fifty percent full manuscript request and offer rate. I handpicked my dream agent from the offers. I can truly say that Suzy's course was an essential part of how I rapidly achieved this goal.

Karen figured out why her manuscript was getting rejections
When I signed up for the Wicked Good Fiction Bootcamp, I had a completed manuscript that I had submitted to numerous publishers, without getting interest and I couldn't understand why.
Through the bootcamp modules, videos, discussions and supplementary information, I came to understand what publishers were looking for in a YA novel and set about tweaking my manuscript to be more publisher-friendly, as well as reader-focused.

Judith got unstuck and reimagined her book
I was stuck. Really stuck. My novel had stalled and months had passed since I had worked on it. Suzy's Wicked Good Fiction bootcamp, well, booted me out of my slump to feeling confident about writing as a career. In the 8 weeks, I got a fully realized outline with complex, well developed characters, a new start to my novel full of snappier dialogue and simply better writing. Suzy communicated her ideas in a straight forward manner which worked beautifully for me. If you are on the fence about it, don't be. It is worth every penny.

Jeff was a new writer who took huge strides toward his publishing goal
Suzy was a blast to interact with. Her bootcamp is full of useful tools for new writers and those rekindling their interest in writing.
She is genuine in her efforts to help writers with an excellent weekly plan. I recommend this class to anyone who dreams of becoming an author.

The Wicked Good Fiction Bootcamp was well worth the investment. What impressed me the most was how Suzy and her team really BELIEVE all of their bootcampers will one day be published. To me this speaks so much about the time and effort that has gone into developing the lessons.
I know I am closer to being published now than I was before. Thanks Suzy and Team!!

C.J. Finished their book, which was nominated for a national award...
When I went into the Wicked Good Fiction Bootcamp with Suzy, I had a stuck manuscript. I loved the story. I loved my characters. I loved my stupid puns. But it was missing something. The last quarter fell apart and was boring. I got unstuck with Suzy's help, and am developing things into a page-turner full of emotional roller coasters and ticking time bombs.
Now I have a Kobo Emerging Writer award-nominated book and am well on my way to my next book.”
