If you enjoy the Path To Publishing free website and free newsletter, consider getting more in-depth, valuable insight and benefits in the Pathfinder Literary Academy, our Members Only Area, by subscribing to our paid website.


The Pathfinder Literary Academy paid website is interactive, fun, and full of information to help guide you down the road to literary success.

For only $347 per year or $39 per month, not only will you receive professional literary and publishing advice, tips and information, but you will receive writing advice, tips and suggestions as well.


An author’s book is the vehicle they put on the road for their literary journey. Editor and literary agent, Dr. Maxine Thompson, who has been coined a book doctor, and Ned Barnett, marketing expert and the author of over 38 books, will help you build and fix your book up with the column, "The Book Mechanic". Dr. Maxine Thompson knows all the elements involved in putting together a well-running vehicle (book), preventative maintenance, and even taking an old, non-running clunker, pulling out jumper cables, and getting it up and running and back on the road again. Ned Barnett understands the importance of incorporating marketing strategies and techniques within the content of your book whether it's fiction or non-fiction.

The Path To Publishing paid website welcomes the literary industry's own version of "Dear Abby," author Nigeria Lockley and Candice "Ordered Steps" Johnson, with their "Plans, Passion and Purpose" column. With so much to consider and take in while trying to reach literary goals, authors can sometimes feel overwhelmed and want to throw in the towel. Allow these two literary inspirations remind you why you picked up the pen in the first place.


We also have a Members Forum where random writing and publishing tips will be added throughout the month. You, as a member, can contribute to the Members Forum as well.
