If you have been dreaming of writing your very own novel, we have something for you…

Hi, I’m Abigail Horne

owner and founder of the award-winning publishing company Authors & Co. We are a partnership publishing company that facilitates making book dreams come true.

After the massive success of running Fiction Academy live last year, we decided that this year we would create a professional training programme to support you in bringing your novel to life.

If this has been your dream, but you don’t know where to begin or you simply want to learn the craft of writing fiction, then this programme is for you.

There are many reasons why people can struggle to write a novel without guidance,


✒ A lack of inspiration or direction: It can be difficult to come up with a compelling story idea and develop it into a full-fledged novel.

✒ Difficulty with plot development: Many writers struggle with creating a cohesive and engaging plot that keeps readers invested in the story.

✒ Difficulty with character development: Building believable, relatable characters is a crucial aspect of writing a novel, but it can be challenging to create characters that are both unique and well-rounded.

✒ Lack of structure: Writing a novel can be overwhelming, especially if the writer does not have a clear idea of what needs to be done and when.

✒ Limited writing experience: Some people struggle with writing a novel because they lack the experience or skills needed to create a compelling story and develop it over the course of a long work.


This does NOT need to be your story.

Meet Deanne

our expert Storytelling mentor and editor

Deanne loves to help people grow in confidence, express the stories they have within them, and help them see that they already have the potential and power to become the writer they want to be. Deanne helps budding authors write their first books and prepare their manuscripts for publishing.

Together, we have created a training programme that will take you from rough thoughts in your head to being able to write your first novel.

A Confident beginning…

We have professionally filmed a library of essential training videos for you to explore the craft of writing. You will discover the vital aspects of what it takes to write and develop your first novel.

Here is the list of trainings you can enjoy in our video library. Each of these videos has subtitles and is accompanied by notes in the form of easy-read Word documents. We have chosen not to put these into “pretty workbooks”, enabling better accessibility to those who need it. Our notes documents can be changed in font size or font style and can be read aloud with screen readers.
