It’s Dangerous to Go Alone!

You don’t have to feel isolated in your publishing journey. 

The Author Media mastermind groups meet monthly on Google Hangouts 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

Payment for the groups is handled through Patreon. The monthly meetings themselves will be hosted on private video hangouts where we can see everyone face to face.

In typical meetings, each Mastermind will give an update on

  • how they are doing.
  • what they have accomplished since last month.
  • what is blocking them.
  • what their goals are for next month.

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

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

From Our Founder

Mastermind Groups Are For Authors Serious About Publishing

There are no ‘become a bestseller quick’ schemes that work, especially in the long run. Our mastermind groups are geared for authors who are willing to put in the hard work and want to build successful writing careers.

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