What is From Writer to Author?

From Writer to Author is an online course that takes a decidedly unique approach to overcoming some of the obstacles many writers face and missteps they make along the way to authoring a book.

Who is this course for?

Whether you've already published a novel or have always dreamed of being an author, this course gives you the ideas and guidance you need to raise the level of your writing craft.

This course is dedicated to writers who wish to become authors. It offers unique perspectives on everything other than just the writing that it takes to build a novel. A successful author of four #1 bestsellers and a professional book coach, Tom Avitabile takes a fresh approach with 15 practical, not professorial, modules that address the most common issues his clients, and those who wish to create commercial fiction, face.

As a book coach, Tom has taken authors from idea to first draft, from the first draft to polish, from polish to final draft from their current book to their next book. This course will help get you to your next level of writing on your way to authoring.


Here's what you'll learn in this course:

  • Practical tips on building a satisfying manuscript

  • A greater understanding of commercial fiction

  • How to recognize some unconscious missteps writers take

  • How to keep the reader turning pages

  • How to avoid a boring sequence, chapter, or book

  • How to better connect characters to readers

  • How to judge your writing for pace, involvement, and reader engagement

  • How to recognize and control story creep or "kitchen sink" writing

  • How to author rather than just write!

Hi, I'm Tom,

and if I can get published, YOU can get published.

Under my picture in my senior yearbook, it could have said, "Most likely to never write a book." Why? Because I was actually classified as 'functionally illiterate' in high school! 

I stumbled into my first manuscript, which became my first published novel and my first #1 bestseller... by accident. Hence why I'm known as The Accidental Author. 

With four #1 bestsellers and eight novels under my belt (my newest thriller, Forgive Us Our Trespasses, was just released out on February 22, 2022), I have created a small business coaching folks who have written their first, second, or 17th novel. My approach is organic and totally my own take on compelling dedicated individuals to THEIR next level of writing on their way to becoming authors.
