What is an Author POD?

An Author POD is an acronym for a milestone achievement process of development that will help you efficiently navigate the hundreds of twists and turns along your pathway to publishing and beyond.

Carolyn Flower developed a curriculum that condenses every element along the way into a series of five processes in her signature Pathways to Publishing© 5-Process Author Development Method.

Don’t get lost in a crowd.

What is ‘Micro Group’ Author Coaching?

Weekly Video Conference on Zoom

Join an intimate immersion micro-group of fellow aspiring authors (maximum four), and travel your Pathway to Publishing journey together toward authorship.

You’ll gain the hands-on support and attention your story needs to move through its concept, framework, draft, to a manuscript that is editor-ready.

During each Author POD Micro-Group 4-week or 8-week Coaching Program, you will be guided step-by-step through the relevant Pathways to Publishing© 5-Process Author Development Method to accelerate your results with ease.

Once the process of development you’re enrolled in is complete, you will ahead with ease toward your next level of achievement. The ultimate goal is to guide you so that your book idea and manuscript is developed and poised for edit, design, branding, promotion, publishing and potentially a thriving business beyond your book! Amplify your influence in the marketplace.

The group size ensures your voice is never lost in the crowd and you’ll receive the time and attention you need to successfully complete each process of development. 

Each POD consists of a group of four aspiring or published authors who are at the same level of development in any given process, so everyone benefits from the teaching expertise and guidance as well as from one another.
