The Author’s Ark

It’s been coming, actually too long in coming, but I’m finally doing it … my own small group mastermind series … but it’s much more than a mastermind–an overused term. It’s an ARK … a gathering of individuals who not only want to survive … they want to go forth and thrive and multiple what they do.

Welcome to:

Author's Ark

The Author’s Ark with Judith Briles … Surviving and Thriving in the Flood of Authoring and Publishing Coaching Groups

I’ve loved the Saturday Salons I do in my home in Colorado once a month that are “open” to all authors at any stage. With a bit of prodding from them and many friends with the “Why don’t you ….”, I’m doing it. The creation of The Author’s Ark with Judith Briles … Surviving and Thriving in the Flood of Authoring and Publishing Coaching Groups will allow me to share my wealth of speaking, authoring and publishing moxie that I’ve gathered over 35, gulp, years.

Your Commitment: only $497 per month … and only 12 participants may be in any one group with a minimum commitment of three months. You will complete a questionnaire before the first Ark.

Throughout the year, Judith will post a combination of Webinars, Group Coaching and One-on-One Coaching all in one package. These will be found under the Events tab on The Book Shepherd website.
