You don’t need to learn everything the hard way!

You don’t have to feel isolated in your publishing journey. You don’t need to learn hard lessons by making mistakes yourself. 

The Author Media mastermind groups meet monthly to help you get unstuck, encouraged, and informed on what the next step is for you.

Each month you will meet with the same authors. You will learn from their journeys and they will learn from yours. 

The Details

How Mastermind Groups Work

Each group is limited to 10 authors. The monthly meetings happen over video where we can see each other face to face.  

In typical meetings, each Mastermind will give an update on

  • Wins to celebrate
  • Questions, Challenges, and Blockers
  • Goals for the next month.

Then, Thomas and the the other masterminds will give advice and encouragement.

Each mastermind gets personalized attention and encouragement from the whole group of Masterminds.

What is an Author Media Mastermind Group?

A mastermind group is a select group of authors who regularly meet face to face online to learn from Thomas Umstattd Jr. and from each other.


What are the requirements to join a Mastermind Group?

Mastermind must already be students of at least one of Author Media’s courses. If you have not yet started an Author Media course, you should start there. The courses are cheaper and mastermind groups are for course students who want to go to the next level.

Mastermind Groups Are For Authors Serious About Publishing

Whether you write fiction or nonfiction, and plan to go traditional or indie I want to help you succeed.”
