You might not know it, but Holly NEVER has sales, so the only time to get a discount on her classes is during these Early-Bird Version of her new courses. Once you get one of her BIG courses, you will get a 20% discount on further courses, however 🙂
What this Class Is:
- The objective of the class is for you to finish a novel you start on the first day about a week after you take the last lesson.
- This class is going to be a step-by-step process of writing your novel and Holly is going to make it Doable, so that you CAN finish it in that time.
- You get to write as many other novels as you want using the same class, in its upgraded versions, at no extra charge.
- You can grab a full outline of the class from the promo (affiliate) link here:
Chinese Menu Version “Particulars”
I have to remind you that this Early-Bird version is just that, and you’ll be getting the class in its first Version, therefore, it will come with all the -what’s the opposite of perks?- within it, including:
- This version will have bugs, typos, and mistakes.
Bonuses of the Chinese Menu Version
This version comes with:
- The lowest price it will ever be. After January the course will remain available – but without the awesome January bonuses.
I hope you think about taking the class, if you’re still trying to write your novel, that is.
I LOVE this class so far! I have to admit, I’ve fallen behind, but that’s on me and my commitments at home 🙂
But I do hope you’ll join me and we can work together in finishing our novels in 8 months time!

7-Day Crash Revision
As with real Chinese menus, there are no substitutions.
Your Column A choices will appear in your classroom on day one of your HTWAN class. (Or on the first Monday following the creation of your ticket, if you buy HTWAN late Friday or over the weekend).
Your Column B choice will appear in your classroom on day 30 of your HTWAN class.
Your Column C choice will appear in your classroom on day 60 of your HTWAN class.
Your Column D edit must be your class novel written using HTWAN.
You’ll verify the novel’s eligibility status for the deep discount by including the link to your artifact post in the forum posts that you can connect to content in your novel. Only ONE discounted edit per writer.
DESSERT, the 7-Day Crash Revision Class, will appear on day 90 of your HTWAN class.
Your novel must be your fully revised final draft (in the condition you would submit to a publisher) before you schedule it. It is impossible to do a content edit on raw first draft.
Holly offers three options to help you do a professional-quality novel revision:
- FREE revision “HOW TO” PDF
- 7-Day Crash Revision Workshop
Everyone who buys during the launch will get the 7-Day Crash Revision class on Day 90.
- How To Revise Your Novel (the BIG class)
There is no time limit on when you can submit your revision, but to get the discount, the class must be purchased during this Chinese Menu launch, and you’ll need to provide your HTWAN receipt (in screenshot or pdf format) to the help desk when scheduling your edit.
7-Day Crash Revision is generally intended for writers who have done revisions before, and who need to do one in a hurry to hit an editor’s deadline… but if you don’t have How to Revise Your Novel and have never completed a successful revision (with successful defined as “The book sold after you revised it, either to an editor or to enough readers to make you some money”), any of the three options above will help you. Only the big class goes into the detail needed by first novelists and writers who have never sold their fiction.
*IMPORTANT: ABOUT THE HELP DESK
Since there is no way to add your Menu choices automatically, Becca and Holly will be in the help desk starting January 2nd to start manually adding the classes.
This means that if you buy during the launch, you’ll have to create a help desk ticket to let them know which extra classes you’ve chosen. Just copy and paste the menu above into your ticket, then delete the items you DON’T want.
Hope to see you in there!

Holly is occasionally doing a live stream, following questions from students. Here is the one from Week 1 of her lessons and gives an extra way to play the “artifact game” in building a story idea for your novel. Here is the youtube video: (it’s a long live stream replay – but gives you an idea of what Holly is like – plus you can pick up some great writing tips, and a free worksheet).
