Aspiring Authors

 we'll let you in on a secret.  In the publishing industry

Knowledge is POWER

It can feel impossible to turn your idea into a story without someone who has it in your corner. From effective time management strategies for meeting manuscript deadlines to tips for negotiating with editors, agents, and publishers, an insider’s knowledge and experience can help you write better, work smarter and reach your publishing goals faster. Writing skills aside, you’re up against the industry’s many idiosyncrasies and traps, which can only be learned through experience – and too often hold new entrants back from publishing successfully.

Insider knowledge is one of the last things you’ll never find on Google. But you can find it here.

Our mission is to bridge the knowledge gaps between great ideas and incredible books that have long held aspiring authors back

What do we do?

We’re passionate about bringing stories to life, and we’ve spent years navigating this complex industry and honing our processes, tools and techniques to develop a formula for successful book writing and publishing. Now we, create online creative writing courses to share it with others.

Who are we?

After working in high-level roles in media and publishing houses for 35 years, Remona created Insider Expert to empower aspiring authors with skills and insights they need to write their stories effectively – and get them published successfully. Today, Insider Expert offers a range of online creative writing courses that address every writing and publishing need and demystify the process at every stage.

Why take an Insider Experts creative writing course?

  • Become a better writer

    Creativity is often considered a ‘blessing’ that we’re lucky to have. But while creative writers might be ‘gifted’ with lots of ideas, turning those into meaningful, marketable and profitable works of literature is a hard-earned skill. Our online creative courses will help you master it, including understanding theme and genre, using narrative structure, and creating life-like characters.

  • An expert in your corner

    Whether you’re at square one or a published author already, this industry is complex and producing a manuscript – let alone getting it published – is daunting. We’ll guide you through every step of the process from idea to promotion, so you can avoid costly mistakes, make better decisions and gain better opportunities for your book.

  • Better outcomes for you and your book

    Knowing your rights and being confident in negotiations with publishers and agents make a huge difference to your outcomes. Authors get better terms and conditions and better royalty payments when they do. Our courses deep-dive into these publishing industry pain points to help you navigate them with ease, from negotiating a great deal to marketing to reach your target audience.

Insider Expert’s online creative writing courses are for you if…

  • You have a great idea for a book

    Just like a plant, your idea must be cultivated correctly to become a successful book. Learn to nurture an idea from acorn to oak with techniques and resources that successful authors swear by.

  • You’re writing a book already

    Get game-changing techniques, tools and templates to help you write more efficiently and effectively.

  • You’re great at what you do

    Your expertise and experience are valuable. There’s a huge market for books that help readers by sharing valuable knowledge and skills.

What other people say about us


Joanne Verikios

As a published author I can tell you the whole process would have been so much easier had I done this course first. Great graphics, easy explanations, and enjoyable to follow. I will also be using all the lessons in the structuring phase section as I develop content for TV shows as well.

Delfina Foster

I like how this step by step courses covers all that is required to create not only a compelling storyline but fascinating characters, plots and subplots in any genre you can imagine. It guides you through the labyrinth of the author's world.

As a nutritionist, I'm looking to write a book to help people understand how easy it can be to live a healthier life. This has been the perfect resource to give me the structure, ideas and tools to get it done.

Anthia Aimee

I wish they taught this in schools or Uni. Loved it and will use it.


Great content. I'm loving the quality of information and finding myself much more inspired. The range of tools are fantastic and the handouts alone would be great value at the price. After going through the planning phase I have at least 10 more ideas, plus I now have an understanding of effective outlining. Highly recommend this to anyone.

These courses offer a comprehensive and engaging path for the journey of a writer from the conception of an idea to the publishing of a book. It is very useful to have all aspects tied together. Both fiction and non-fiction are examined, which is effective as there can be an emphasis on fiction alone. The explanations and examples would engender confidence in those who might feel strongly about writing but hesitate to start.

Jess Doyle

I really enjoyed reading through and processing the information in this course. I have had a book in the making which has sat on the shelf for ten years. During this time, I had become very frustrated as I did not have the tools to complete it. The Ultimate Blueprint has now given me everything I need to proceed forward with my book. Each course has provided me with the Blueprint step by step guide, and with this information, I will go onto writing more and more. A big thank you for making this available.
