If you enjoy the Path To Publishing free website and free newsletter, consider getting more invaluable insight and benefits in our Members Only Area by subscribing to our paid website.


The Path To Publishing paid website is interactive, fun, and full of information to help guide you down the road to literary success.

For only $49 per year, 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, will help you build and fix your book up with her 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.


The Path To Publishing paid website welcomes the literary industry's own version of "Dear Abby," author Nigeria Lockley and her "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. Nigeria Lockley wants to remind you why you picked up the pen in the first place.
