Author of The Educated Pheasant
Write That Book has been the best thing that’s happened for me during this pants year of COVID.
I have met such an amazing group of people, who have not only been supportive but also so encouraging when the fear and uncertainty kicked in.

When I opened the package and saw my book, in print, I cried.

Write That Book has taken me from wanting to write a book to having a book being published in November. I have also started a sequel. I can honestly say that had I not joined this group I would never have got my book written or published.

Rev Brenda Forrester
Michael has brought us from a standing start and opened up the whole world of publishing our first book. An invaluable insight containing many elements.
The interviews are particularly instructive, and Michael delivers the course with great enthusiasm.
A very good value for money venture for anyone thinking of writing that book!
Author of The Fertility Kitchen
Write That Book Masterclass is jam-packed with useful information, delivered in an engaging way. I started with a solid idea and by the end, not only had I pitched to a shortlist of agents, I signed with one!
If you have a book idea and want to take the next step, this course will provide step-by-step guidance and a wealth of ideas.
Michael's knowledge of publishing plus his enthusiasm for supporting his group, added to the brilliant interviews and short films, all helped to make this masterclass great value for money.
Our own support groups, formed via the masterclass, have also been a great idea for constant support.
If you're still unsure, take a moment to read these reviews from members of Write That Book Masterclass
It’s been the best group that I’ve been part of and sharing the journey with others has been wonderful. I have learned so much about the book writing and publishing process as well as all the fascinating subjects that people are writing about.
Write that book Masterclass has given me the motivation to actually write my book. The support from the entire group is just brilliant. Thank you Michael Heppell - you really have changed my life.
I have learned so much in such a short space of time and have loved every moment. It has been such a joyous adventure and I have made some amazing friends along the way. I now feel I can actually achieve my goal of being an author with a book that means everything.
A brilliant programme that gave participants the key learning lessons they needed to master the mystifying skills required to publish their book.
There are several aspects that need to align when it comes to writing a book: Knowledge, Mindset and Motivation. Michael's Write That Book Masterclass combines these three by providing invaluable experience and knowledge from his own publishing and from numerous experts too. The Facebook group plus regular online sessions and 'mastermind groups' provide the regular motivation and mutual support.
When I woke up one morning and decided it was time to write my book, I never dreamt that within a week I would be on the Write That Book Masterclass. The level of support from Michael has been outstanding. I have felt nurtured, inspired, cared about and I have learned so much within an amazing group of fellow writers. I am now an Author with an important message to share with the world through my book and Michael has got me there.
The Write That Book Masterclass has been Brilliant! I have learnt and developed so much and have no doubt at all that I will complete my book as a result of attending. This program has made my dream a reality and it would never have been possible without Write That Book Masterclass.
The whole experience from the pop-up group, to completion of the masterclass programme, has been an absolute joy. I have made new friends. I have connected with a wonderful, generous community of people from across the world. Most importantly, I have made more progress in my writing in the last four months than I managed to achieve over the previous fifteen years since I first decided I wanted to become a published author. I would do it all over again in a heartbeat.
The Masterclass experience has been brilliant at developing my understanding of what I need to do to successfully publish a book. Without doubt what I learnt about publishing and marketing helped me avoid pitfalls that I would definitely have fallen into.
Write That Book Masterclass is a brilliant way to propel your ideas to the next level.
The children’s story hidden inside me, was ready to be penned. Without this course and the support of other aspiring authors, my book would never have surfaced.
Truly a Masterclass from a Master.
