"This book is an incredible epic fantasy. Well written, interesting, and with believable characters, it sucks you in from the first page."
"Fantasy as its best."
"Perhaps the best part of reading was that feeling you get when you are immersed into a different world, which is exactly what Link has built. There are cultures, geographies, languages, and creatures that come together to make a fun yet deeply sophisticated world. In this way, The Legender reminded me of the greats like Tolkien."
"A new world on par with Tolkien."

Who this course is for:
- Fantasy writers who wish to write a novel
I’m Jason Link, a published writer and a former English instructor. For over 20 years I’ve been practicing the art of writing and storytelling.
One of my passions is sharing the craft of story with those who want to learn. I have taught students from all over the world and have had the opportunity to teach in the US and outside the US.
For over five years, I lived in Nicaragua and during that time, I taught English and writing to students from a variety of backgrounds and cultures, many of whom did not have English as their first language.
I’m also the author of the Legender series, an epic adventure that Publishers Weekly calls a grand fairytale.
My readers tell me time and time again how fascinating they find the world of my story to be. Some even say that it has the complexity and intrigue of Tolkien’s Middle-Earth.
It is my privilege to share my experience with you in my courses.
