I completely understand what you're going through because I was you.
In 2014, I graduated high school with a publishing contract on my first query attempt ever (a process that's meant to take years!)
But after my publisher went bankrupt, I went on to self-publish—only for my book launch to completely flop due to the lack of clear information out there for authors.
At the time, I had no idea what I did wrong, no idea how to fix it, and I'd never felt more stuck in my life.
I remember sitting in my childhood bedroom, staring at my social media every night and wondering how to build my readership and get people to buy my book.
I didn't know what to do next, and I wished that I had a trusted mentor who could get me back on track. But I didn't have thousands of dollars lying around to invest in a coach.
Regardless, I decided I wasn't going to let anyone else struggle the way I had, and went on to learn everything there was to know about bettering my book launches.
As of today I'm a bestselling author whose been invited to speak internationally, been featured in 20+ publications and media, and I've helped aspiring authors just like you to triple their book launch results.
If you know what you want to achieve, but you don't know what next step to take, then your next step needs to be getting clear on the pathway to get there.
The Authorpreneur Kingdom:
"When I released my first book, I didn't have any help with my copy or marketing. With Pagan's help, I released my second book with more than triple the success of my first!
I wanted accountability and a community of writers to discuss problems and challenges with. Being a part of a community helps motivate and keep me on track."
- Allison Rose, #1 bestselling author of Tales Of An Outcast Faerie

Here's *exactly* what you get as a member...
Total monthly value = $2,826
But your investment is much less...
Nope, it's actually the perfect time for you to join!
What most newer authors don't realise is that publishing is a business, and the sooner you gain an understanding of all the different roles an author takes on, the better equipped you'll be to tackle them. It's exactly why this membership covers such a broad scope of topics, including querying, publishing, marketing and branding (just to name a few).
Yes, if you're still struggling to make consistent book sales and balance writing with a day job.
Many of my members have used this membership to stay accountable while growing their backlist to a profitable place over a number of years. It's a great way to maintain cost-effective, ongoing support until you're ready to take those bigger steps.
There is a place for you in here (many of my members also do editing, coaching or formatting on the side). We've done a few calls in the past that would HUGELY benefit you (such as our 2 Hour Money Mindset Discussion).
The membership supports you across a broad range of authorly topics (e.g. learning about book publishing), and it's less personalised. I recommend it to authors who are starting out, aren't 100% clear on what next step to take, and need a low-level investment to feel supported and explore their options.
Private coaching supports you deeply with a specific goal (e.g. launching your book from start to finish) and is highly personalised. I recommend it to authors who know exactly what their next step is and want to go all in pursuing it.
This membership is designed to have a low level committment with a high level impact. If you have 1 - 2 hours a week, you have enough time to use this membership.
It doesn't matter if you show up live to the calls, or catch the replays in your own time. It doesn't matter if you watch 1 masterclass per week or binge them all as soon as they hit your inbox. The membership is self-paced and flexible enough that you can make it work for you, so long as you're prepared to find some time each week.
And, let's be honest... if you haven't been finding the time to pursue your authorly goals, well, nothing's going to change until you intentionally start making time for it. What better way to build that habit than to show up for this membership?
I know committing to a monthly investment can feel scary, but let me ask you this: what is your author dream worth to you? What would you give to make it a reality?
I know that this matters to you, and the only way you're going to get where you want to go with it is to prioritise it. If you need support on your author journey, acknowledge that and take decisive action!
The truth is that you could totally spend hours figuring all this out on your own, but that’s time you’ll never get back. That might not seem like a big deal now, but it will when you look back in five years and realise how much further ahead you could have been. You can step into authorship right now, you don't have to wait for the stars to align first (and little hint? that's not going to happen anyway).
Plus, the majority of my members have been inside for over a year because they find it *that* valuable to stick around and get support. As for the rest? They left when they outgrew it, because you can cancel anytime. There’s no risk at all in joining for a month and seeing it’s worth your dime, but you lose by default if you never jump in and try it.
"I LOVE the Authorpreneur Kingdom. Pagan is a great coach, I like that we check in each week, and I feel as though I've gotten to know the participating members.
Since joining the membership I decided to bite the bullet and start self-publishing!!"
- Heather Hataley, author
"Absolutely love it. Always someone to help you and being able to submit questions for help is a great way to learn as well as knowing you aren't alone."
- Rhianne Williams, fantasy author
"The membership is an absolutely PRICELESS investment!
Even if I would have never invested in 1:1s with you, you share so much knowledge with regular posts, lives, masterminds, and the monthly group calls that it would be crazy not to join.
The other authors in the group ask amazing questions and are super helpful with opinions as well, and the content review thread is invaluable for second opinions!
When I first joined the membership I went from being confused and knowing nothing to knowing the next steps I had to take just off of one mastermind, alone!"
- S. W. Raine , steampunk author
You get 3 x group coaching calls a month with me, but you also have access to the membership community where you can ask questions and seek help from me.
For as long as you decide to maintain your membership for.
The masterclasses and group calls are delivered live in a private Facebook Group community.
However, there is also a member's area hosted externally from Facebook where you can access all the masterclasses after they've aired live.
All other threads (e.g. content review) are posted within the private Facebook Group.
At the start of each week, a thread gets posted with the call dates & times. You can use each week's thread to ask questions in advance if you can't make the call live.
At the end of the week, at the scheduled time, I conduct the call and answer the questions. Then, the call is pinned at the top of the group for everyone to access. This enables people to watch the replay at any time.
Due to the nature of the course content, I do not offer refunds.
You can cancel your membership anytime and you will retain access to the group until the next month's payment is due.
No worries—just send an email to my team via firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be in touch!
