If you’ve been searching for the perfect course for authors, then stop searching— you’ve found it!
My courses are unlike any other— they’re the product of my own personal experiences as an author and publisher, and strategies I’ve acquired through real ‘in house’ experience. Best of all, they’re jam packed with valuable videos and resources, all organised into eight modules.
If your looking for a course that teaches you step-by-step how to start writing your book, or build a mailing list, or create an efficient marketing strategy— this is it. I bring you clear explanations and real results.
The best feature of my courses are the exclusive mastermind group communities that go hand-in-hand with them— you’ll get access to a framework that helps you meet other authors, get feedback on your work, ask questions in real time, get exclusive trainings, and build a community around your brand.
You’ll also receive:
- Free manuscript critiques
- Q&A Replays
- Access to the Accountability Partner System
- Weekly motivation to help you stay on track with your struggles and overcome them!
It’s self-paced to fit your busy lifestyle, and allows for flexibility—so you can write that book or build that business foundation as you go!
Are You Ready For Your Magical Writing Journey?
Do the following statements sound familiar?
- “I’ll never be good enough.”
- “I have no ideas.”
- “People will hate my work.”
- “I just don’t have time to write.”
These are the major pain points that every writer has— self-doubt, dissatisfaction, feeling unmotivated or overwhelmed.
How do I know?
Because I’ve been through it before.
But this course is going to change that.

Let’s Step It Up: The Author Empire Builder!
Is This For Me?
Maybe you’re wondering whether it’s worth investing in a course that teaches writing, or book marketing— and whether it’s really the right fit for you.
It’s definitely the right fit if you’re someone who thrives off of feedback— this is the place to be getting all the ongoing support you could possibly need, for as long as you need it.
Why I Created These Courses
You might be interested to know that I studied two creative writing courses— and to be completely honest and blunt, they were a massive waste of my time.
“But wait— if that’s the case, why are you trying to sell me a course?”
See, here’s the thing— it’s more than just a course. It’s a community.
Your Magical Writing Journey doesn’t teach you how to write, like those college courses do— it teaches you how to overcome newbie writing mistakes.
Likewise, The Author Empire Builder teaches you how to understand, implement, and adapt the proven online strategies I’ve created specifically for building a book based publishing business.
Who are you, and why should I learn from you?
My name is Pagan and I’m a YA fiction author! I help writers make the shift from aspiring author, to bestselling badass paired WITH that dreamy, kickass business workflow that’s gonna bring in the big dough.
I’ve written eight manuscripts (and counting), published books, signed publishing contracts, and worked in publishing houses on the marketing end of things. I’ve got the skills to help you succeed.
Do you guarantee results?
These courses are passionately created through a combination of my personal experiences, research, and strategies I’ve acquired. The group community framework in particular is a very hands on, high vibe community, intended to motivate and educate you.
Combined, it’s a recipe for success— but this, of course, is dependant on your own commitment. If you show up, complete the work, and engage in the community, you’ll see results.
I’ve never shared my work with anyone before…
That’s one of the perks of this course– it’s designed to help you work through this and overcome any obstacles or fears you might have about sharing work. The important thing to remember is that every writer’s first draft starts off terrible– or at least, they perceive it as such. You’ll be in a community of writers who are in the exact same boat as you, and you’ll all share a common desire to learn and grow– not judge, steal, or snob anybody.
Whether you choose to share your work is up to you– but I certainly encourage it as the group community is a safe space designed for things like this.
What if I want more 1:1 time with you as a mentor?
You might be better suited to my coaching programs. I have four programs, tailored to whichever stage of your journey you might be at, and each one includes workbooks, weekly sessions with me, and other sweet perks.
Do you offer refunds?
In your welcome packet, I have a payment policy outlined.
To summarise it, paying in full grants you lifetime access to the course and community. I offer refunds for upfront payments for a seven day period after purchase– if you have completed at least two of the modules (workbooks included) and can offer me a reason as to why the course content isn’t working for you.
If you’re on a payment plan, you are placed into my special tier system and you will unlock video modules as you progress through your repayments. I don’t offer refunds if you are on a payment plan, but if you cancel your payment plan, you’ll get to keep access to the videos you’ve unlocked. However, you will lose group community access (as the group community framework is tailored for all eight modules).
What if I try the course and decide I don’t like it?
I offer a 14 day trial where you get access to the first two videos and the group community– so if you’re unsure, you might consider this option prior to purchasing.
You can cancel your payment plan at any time.
Am I ready for a course like this?
Of course you are! 🙌
My courses are meant for authors– whether you’re just getting started, or polishing your book, or starting to build your career. They’re created by an author, for other authors.
