Announcing A Writer’s Path Writers Club: Creating Benefits For Writers


I’m happy to announce our new initiative: A Writer’s Path Writers Club.

After looking at the writing market for years, I noticed a need for a Writers Club of this kind. Sure, there are Facebook groups, writers groups, etc., but there aren’t many associations that are more than just a gathering of writers.

I wanted to create a club where the sole purpose of it is to solve headaches for writers. Here are some of the headaches I’m looking to solve:

  • It’s hard to find reviewers for my book
  • Writing-related service providers (editors, book cover designers, etc.) are expensive
  • I don’t know if my writing is good enough and I need feedback
  • I need more promotion for my book
  • I don’t know if my blurb or summary is good enough
  • Not enough readers know my book exists
  • I don’t know enough about what other successful authors have done to be successful
  • I don’t know if my book cover encourages readers to purchase it

No time commitment. Maximum value.

And of course, there are fun stuff to be had too, such as giveaways and contests. Here’s the full list of benefits you’ll receive by joining the Writers Club.


  • Discounts from writer-related service providers, such as editors, book cover designers, proofreading services, ghostwriters, social media marketing, book advertising, template design, audio book narration, and more.
  • Free book editing provided by a professional freelance editing service.
  • Free blurb coaching provided by a professional coaching service.
  • Free book promotion on A Writer’s Path blog (25,000 subscribers), such as Author Spotlight posts and “Book of the Month” posts. Every post generates a social media shout-out to my Twitter, Facebook, Goodreads, Tumblr, and Google+ account (total of 12,900 followers).
  • Exclusive articles not seen on the A Writer’s Path blog.
  • Help to find you reviewers and critique partners (optional).
  • A free copy of my eBook, The Idea Factory: 1,000 Story Ideas & Writing Prompts to Find Your Next Bestseller. ($2.99 value)
  • Free critique of your book summaries and book covers (optional).
  • Insider tips from published authors in short, bite-sized articles.
  • Links to free books normally at full price.
  • Opportunities to show off your book to the other members.
  • Exclusive author interviews.

And exclusively for you all, if you join in the next week (now through the end of September 2017), you’ll receive a free promotional tweet for your book (example here). To receive it, send me an internal message within the Writers Club once you’ve joined and give me the promo code BT4E92 .

Fast-track your writing progress. Be a part of something. Join a Writer’s Path Writers Club.

  1. Confused… isn’t that what your normal Blog/website here has been doing? Are you starting a Club with a paid membership? Trying to better understand this. Many of us belong to soon many clubs/organizations/meetups, etc. that I wonder about this. Is this mainly geared toward self-publishing?


    1. Hi BV. Good questions. What I do here on A Writer’s Path are informative articles and guest posts, which is free and valuable. The difference with the Writers Club is that its laser focus is giving benefits to writers and solving their problems/headaches. It’s more than just articles.

      Yes, it’s a paid membership club. It caters to both self-published and traditionally published authors, although self-published authors will probably find more tools helpful. E.g. self-published authors have more of a need for discounted editor services because traditionally published authors don’t have to worry about that, as most publishing houses do the editing.

      To put it another way, A Writer’s Path blog helps you help yourself, whereas the Writers Club helps you by doing things for you.

      Thank for the questions. I appreciate your interest.

  2. Reblogged this on My Mindless Drivel and commented:
    This may interest some of you who have not seen it. Ryan Lanz does a blog called A Writer’s Path, but is now going to be doing a subscription membership A Writer’s Path Writers Club. Even if you aren’t interested in the paid membership, you may find his blog articles of use in your writing endeavors.


  3. I found this through a newsletter from TBD and I had a lot of questions which, even after googling and digging through this site and patreon, remain unanswered. Since this seems to be the only place I can ask them, that’s what I am doing 🙂

    1) I see on Patreon that membership for AWPWC is $1/ mo but I cannot find any terms of service or more specific explanations of the charges. I am not familiar with the workings of Patreon in a general way, let alone with becoming a Patreon for a club like this. I saw that it would let me type in how much I want to pay. Does that mean if I pay $12 to join that it will give me a year membership to AWPWC? Or does it mean that $1 goes toward membership and $11 is donated so I have to return and pay another $1 next month?

    2) When you sign up and pay your first fee, is that an automatic contract to be a patron for a certain amount of time? Also, is it automatic withdrawal payments or monthly manual payments?

    3) Everything listed is included on that $1 a month? Or are there different discounted prices say for “Free book editing provided by a professional freelance editing service.” I found nothing that confirmed that by paying $1 a month everything listed was ACTUALLY free, or just the access in which to find those resources was free so that leaves me confused. (some places offer “free” services before you sign up, only to have you find out after joining that they simply are giving you a free list of paid services instead of the actual services themselves)

    4) What do you mean by optional for “Help to find you reviewers and critique partners”? Is this an up-charge?

    If everything is as black and white as it’s stated, I would sign up in a heartbeat. However, with very little information to go off of as far as terms and conditions of joining, this leaves me a little hesitant still. Thank you in advance for helping clear up my confusions 🙂


    1. Hi Melissa! I’d be happy to answer your questions. By the by, there’s also a link to my “contact me” a little futher down the Writer’s Club page on Patreon.

      There is a “terms of use” link at the bottom of any Patreon (the platform I use to host the Writers Club) page.

      The membership is $1/mo. If you change the amount, then that would be the amount charged to you each month. There’s no reason to change it from the $1/mo, as that’s the only tier I support.

      The payments are automatic, and not manual. There is no required amount of time to stay a member. You can leave whenever you wish.

      Everything listed for the perks/rewards are included in the $1/mo membership. There are no hidden fees. : )

      I keep an eye out for people who want to review and beta read books. When I find them, I let the Club know. I also plan on hosting beta reading swap posts where writers can find each other. No, there is no up-charge for this.

      Let me know if you have any other questions!
